Question about Philips 20PT6245 TV

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.

Re: No picture or sound just a high pitch beeping noise

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

When my rca 36F530 tv is plugged in it makes a high pitched buzzing noise picture does not come on

There is a short circuit in the high voltage circuit. the transformer who helps to create the high voltage or his power transistor is damage. replacement needed. the repair is not expensive, because the parts are average repair. Ask for an estimate.

A shorted horizontal output transistor or shorted flyback. If the flyback is shorted replace also its HOT.

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 Model f27650 High pitch squeal

the high pitch squeal indicates shorted component/s. the transformer goes hot co'z its being overloaded by the shorted component, it too could be the one creating the squeal!!

if you have experience with electronic troubleshooting, try to test some of the components particularly on the secondary part of the transformer.
Be careful and make sure the TV set is unplugged.
test for shorted diodes and transistors, if you're in doubt of your readings try to desoldering one leg of the diode then proceed with the testing/measuring. replace any of the bad components you find exactly with same part number or replacements with the same rating.

spend more time on it resoldering some other cold soldered components.
