Re: tv wont turn on

A high pitched chirp is a sign that you have a short on the load of your power supply. I just finished repairing one of these sets and it had a shorted horizontal output transistor and a bad flyback transformer.

RCA 32'' TV making a humming noise

sounds like a shorted horizontal output transistor probably caused by the high voltage transformer or hot. it is most likely fixable but it will be costly.

RCA TV dead

If this is a crt type tv. This could be attributed to a faulty high voltage circuit. A defective horizontal output transistor or the flyback. Or better to check some minor component with regards to flyback like diodes.

RCA TV Model F32444 Will not power on

The noise you are hearing is probably the degauss (it demagnetises the screen every startup). The most likely problem is the power supply. Do a replacement of all the caps on the powersupply board and it will likely fix your problem. Because it still has power to the degauss coils it hasn't blown the fuse. Power supply not starting like that is usually caused by a small electrolytic capacitor near the heatsink on the mains side of the powersupply. They can be replaced for about 10 cents.
Hope this helps

TV does not turn on. When plugged into an outlet makes a high pitch noise.

Your problem is a shorted horizontal output transistor C5148 located behind the highvoltage transformer on a heat sink with a clip over it and you can't see the number unless you remove the clip Has to be unsolded and solder in new. Also the highvoltage transformer must be replaced This is the big part with the large red wire coming out and going to the top of the picture tube. Must be unsoldered and replaced with original RCA not get a replacement It has several connections plus three wires to connect to it and I recommend using desoldering brad can get at Radio Shack 5 foot roll. Well as you can see it gets pretty involved. You can't get the parts from most distributors unless you have a business. If he tackles it and has a distributor the parts would run about $50 to $60 and a repairman average should be less than $200 and more than $150 hope this helps. Contact me for any questions you may have. I am more than willing to help.

I have seen some RCA TV's with this problem and it has usually been a switch going bad on the keypad of the tv. This can be confirmed by disconnecting the plug from the control panel to the main chassis.If you are lucky, and the ir rcvr for the remote is not on the control board, you can still control tv with the remote.Good luck.

TV screen wont turn on but just a loud noise coming from the tv

I think maybe the G-board needs to be replaced. A TV shop will have to repair it. They normally start around $200.00
