Question about RCA 36F530T 36" TV

1 Answer

RCA 36'' TruFlat Model #36F530T

When I turn the TV on there is no picture or sound. The power button (green light) blinks and then the power goes out. The TV has always been plugged to a surge protector. I unplugged the TV for a few hours but the problem persisted once I plugged the TV back into the surge protector.

There is a good chance that the failure is in the main power supply. 
A second chance is that the set is protecting itself from a failure after the supply; this is more likely to occur in the horizontal section where the highest power consumption occurs. 
If the failure is in the supply, it could be a fairly reasonable cost repair. If in the horizontal section, depending on whether the failure is limited to a $10 horizontal output transistor or a bad flyback transformer. The transformer should still be available but with markup, shipping and installation, the cost could exceed the $100 US mark.
Generally, I have been recommending folks repair their old standard definition sets, buy a converter box for digital TV, and not dispose of them since the flat panel sets are dying like flies, often just after the warranty expires.   This would at least provide some kind of set when the expensive LCD or plasma sets go belly up.

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.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

I have a RCA tv in my house; believe it is a 36 inch. I have been trying for two days to get it working. When I turn it on, I get no power or sound whatsoever. All I get is a small green light on the front...


The set has gone into protective shutdown. This is to prevent further damage. The most common part failure is hte horizontal output transistor. This is a 3-legged part attached to a heat sink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out of the top). Try replacing that part.
Keep us posted.
