Re: TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.

Check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.

How much would you sell a 36" tv for

Hi iglidewell
In the last 7 years the price of plasma and lcd tvs has dropped quit a bit, so that makes it a popular choice.
But there are still die hard fan for the tube types, so you could ask from around $150 to $200 for it, or a quick sale at a 100 bucks.
Merry Christmas
P.S please do not rate this answer(unless it helps) since this is only a suggestion.

It's simply refered to as the power supply- the repair guys will know exactly what you are talking about when you use it. You see the power supply upgrades the power to drive the tube- much in the same way a coil increases the power on your car from 12 volts to what ever it needs to turn the engine. The green light just means that you turned it on, and all the other curicuts are working. Like if your car coil is bad-you can still turn on the lights and radio-but there is not enough power to turn over the engine/turn on the picture tube. I love my 36 incher- mine is 12 years old-and was only in the shop once-and still gives a better picture than the LCDs out there. I'm a member of SMPTE. society of motion picture and television enginers.

36" rca tv

Mine did the same thing. Just happened to have a worthless Best Buy service contract. The tech came out and said that it was the power supply and or the fly back something or other. He then prodceeded to tell me that he could not get parts for my 2 year old tv. You might check with a local tv repair shop and get some estmates on replacing these 2 parts.but at 80-100 bucks and hour for labor....

Who said it cannot be fixed? You can try and hook an external speaker to wires and test for sound. Maybe audio outs have sound?

Tv will not power up

no reset button ,sorry. The problem you describe is pretty common with this model as its a fault in the horizontal drive circuit or in the main power supply and without the proper service manual as well as the prober tools and equipment this set its not gonna get fixed. there are no panels or user changable boards as it is a solid state set. could repair this board or exchange it with a referbished board but it would still requir some adjustment that a user may not be able to handle. time to call the pro.. Sorry couldnet help ya more.. Good Luck.
