My old 32 inch rca f32665 stopped working as we were watching it. no picture or sound and there is a sound coming from the back where the power cord goes in that sounds exactly like a cricket only its a...


The usual cause is a shorted horizontal output transistor. The way this chassis is designed, the supply makes 140 volts which is always on and applied to the transistor. The heavy load on the power supply causes it to make that chirping sound as it keeps trying to start, then shuts down right away.

The h-out is Q14401, RCA part number 237470. A 2SC5148 can replace it.

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 .....do 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.

TV making chirping sound


If one of the secondary supplies is shorted, the power supply will "chirp" when plugged in. This is the power supply's way of protecting itself and this usually happens when the horizontal output transistor is shorted. If this set was in my shop and needed a new output transistor, a fair price would be right around $100.

My tv is making a chirping sound with no picture


Sure can as its the most common problem RCA ever had with their tv sets, besides the tuner sheild problem in the past.. Your problem maybe a small coil off the horizontal driver transformer and the other side going to the base of the horizontal output transistor, as the coil needs to be taken out and the leads scraped as at the factory the robot left too much enamial on the coil wire and it causes a bad connection. Problem 2 could be a shorted horizontal output transistor that is shorted and or the main high voltage tranformer/flyback. If you know how to work on tvs then all you gotta do is give the model or chassis # to the parts distributor and they will give a kit with alot of papers to read and follow as well as a small blue cap along with a new transformer and be sure you measure the horizontal output transistor out of the circuit as in circuit it will measure shorted because the horizontal drive transformer to the base of it. Now if your not a tech then your gonna want to take in this set to a pro but let me warn ya its gonna cost between $175.00 to $250.00 bucks to fix.. Good luck
