Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

Powers off by itself

I have a rca 36 inch tv from about 1991 and last couple of months it would go off by itself about twice a week. it would go right back on if i hit the power button, but not anymore. early last week it started going off every time it was on after awhile. then it didn't come back on at all, i pushed the power button and i hear a click then heard the tv screen do the degauss thing and the light goes off and it is done. now it does nothing at all i hear no noises and don't see anything on screen. i tried unplugging it and checked the fuse but it was good. any help would be appriciated.

I own a 52 inch rca projection tv and last week

Most likely the Horizontal output transistor has shorted. When it shorts it causes the power supply to chirp. This is a common problem with this series of TV. Have a shop check it out. It should not be real expensive.

I wouldn't advise doing it yourself. All you have to do to kill yourself is touch the wrong part connected to the magnets on the back of the tube-even if it has been unplugged for a couple of days- no joke. The repair place will be better able to track down the part, and install it, and guarentee it. Be aware- it might take a week or two for them to just get the part-then they have to install it.

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.

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.
