RCA F32632SB problem

It appears a diode came loose from the main board in my television and managed to burn a hole through the board and short the tv out. When I had it still together if I plugged it in I would just get a high pitch whistle. The board is burnt up, there's not question about it. A quarter of it is charred and melted. I've been online looking for a site that sells the parts I need and I'm not having any luck. Could you point me in the right direction please? Here are some pictures of the damage: Respectfully, Bryan

Fuse pops when power is applied

That's what it's supposed to do. If the current being drawn by the televisions electronics exceeds a certain amps or milli-amps rating that means that there is a short circuit or other damage ...

If you are putting the correct fuse - then it's time for that tv to go to the shop for repair.

Hour Glass picture on a RCA TV F32632SB

I looked up this model and found the following electolytic capacitors to be the most likely culprits within the pincushion circuit. Check these first. The starred one is the one I have replaced in the past to resolve this.

C4851 10ufd 50V
C4853 10ufd 63V
C4854 2.2ufd 100V
C4855 2.2ufd 50V
* C4862 100ufd 25V

Good luck,

Problem with my RCA F32632SB

That is a linearity coil not a diode. The coild can be replaced on its own and possibly the board patched up as long as you know where the burned traces go to. The only other way to get the board fixed since RCA never sold main board is go to and contact them on rebuilding the board. You wil have to ship it to them and once they are done they will ship it back. It probably isn't worh the cost though.
