Question about Philips 20PT6245 TV

1 Answer

No picture or sound just a high pitch beeping noise

I have the same TV as jim y , an RCA 36" about 7years old. I'm trying to find out if he fixed his problem. I haven't had TV for a couple months now, not sure whether I should have it fixed or toss it. It was a nice TV, good picture quality, but it is broken.

Your problem is a bad sweep power supply or the horizontal sweep circuit has a short in it such as a bad horizontal output transistor as well as the high voltage flyback transformer. These are not problems that should even be concidered to be repaired or attempted to be repaired by an untrained person in solid state electronics. Please seek out a trained service person to estimate the TV for you as there are no user parts inside this set, and a TV set is not a place to be experimenting around inside of.

10-year-old 32" RCA PIP TV just blinked off one morning after about 30 minutes. It makes a continuous high pitch sound, and the on/off switch is completely unresponsive. I assume this is a picture tube and...

It's not the picture tube(especially if image was good b4 it went dead). The high pitch noise is the power supply whinning because it's shorted or overloaded. I just fixed one of these sets - replaced the horiz. o/p transistor and flyback estimate around $120.00-$160.00

Trouble turning on tv. High pitched noise/click.

The mainboard might have some loose components, or cold solder , or may be the filter capacitors are becoming faulty. Yes it is worth repairing, bring it to the repair shop. Cheers.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on

The beeping sound is most likely the high voltage generator needing replacement. This is a fairly easy job if you have some tech support to discharge the picture tube. You can go to the following link and leave them an email with your model number and your symptom and they will email you back with the part you need and they provide free tech support with instant messageing so you can do the repair yourself. the HV generator takes about a half hr to replace and takes only the basic soldering ability. heres the link.

TV making high pitch sound

Hi, There are usually 1 or 2 fans inside the TV's. Could be worn bearings, or fan blade interference. Sorry, without my electric ear working, I can only guess.
