Audio is controled on the small signal board. if you had sound for a week after you replaced the fuse. I do not believe it is related to fuse. audio is generate on that board. there are two small connectors usally with a red and green mark on them that go to the speakers. make sure those are not lose. Your speakers could have blown. Also check in your settings make sure the amplifer is set to internal and the speakers are on. If after all those items have checked then it comes down to replaceing the small signal board. Something that requires a tech with a special computer.

My model nn-p295wf microwave stopped working ,all power just stopped, about a year ago. I took it to a repair shop and they replaced the DIODE and the fuse, then it worked again. Afew weeks ago it happened...

Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

Bows at top and bottom of screen double picture color is everywhere

ok this sympton sounds like a complete faliure of the convergence cuircuts. First thing I look at when I get one of these with these sympton in at the shop is = go to the setup menu and see if you have the convergence option in the setup menu. if you do not then you might have a common problem called the fl231 fuse problem. If you do I suggest reading the article fl231 fuse problem in te tips and how to section of this website. If this is not the case then you have lost power to these compents and will have to replace these cuircits

I have an IMODE IP215 that has lost sound. Any suggestions


i am in Colombia, and year ago i bought in USA at Circuitcity (Miami) an Imode Ip 215 Clock Radio with IPOD dock station for a nephew gift. It functions several months without any problem but suddenly it does not sound anymore. A technician examination determined that the problem was not the volume control as i though but the CD8227CP Integrated . The Headphone jack always worked fine in spite of that problem, though the volume was fixed..
Idon't know if this common problem of the Imode devices mut be due to a defective or bad quality sound piece

I hope this help you to determine thereal problem.

Me again TV is driving me crazy....

Ok let see what we can do. These rca can be trouble. Im a technician and i see these alot. I guess that a good recomendation for these set LOL. First question. I take it you had the FL231 fuse problem... YOu replaced the fuse did you do the most important step. RESOLDER the flyback connections. i beleve that is step 7 in the instruction. this is the main reson this fuse blows. i have run into only one other case ...out of the hundreds of fuses i have replaced where the small signal cuircit board cause it to blow. but like i said very rare. i used to just put that fuse in and not resolder... it would come back to me within a day. LEt me know what happens

Liquid spilt on front of RCA HD52w59

Hello billew0481,

This might be a switching power supply problem. Since whatever may have spilled got on the broad and over time dried and shorted something out. While this is a possibility, I think that in this case the two incidents are not related. I think that you do have a power supply issue but the spill is not related. Is it worth fixing, That's up to you to decide the only thing I can do is to tell you what the problem may be and give you possible prices. For this job you are looking at a high end payment of $1000.00 if the IHVT, HOT, and High Voltage Tripler (along with associated circuitry) is defective. However it could be as simple as a fuse being defective. What I would suggest is getting an estimate based on a technician troubleshooting the Tv and determining what is wrong. at worst you'll be charged $100.00 for the house call. It's up to you then to decide to get it fixed or not.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

you have a fusible link that has blown. This is what causes the convergence option no be erased from the menu. You will need to locate the blown link and replace it. They are identified by FLpreceeding the location number on the circuit board such FL221 and etc.

Did you chane your ICs recently? If so did you replace the resistor near the ics? These resistors often fail and if you replace the convergence ICs without replacing them they will take out the new ICs quickly.
