Question about RCA F36685 36" TV
1999 RCA Model F36685, Service No. F36685/YX1 Chassis # CTC197CN. After initially turning on the set, it operates for about 5 minutes, then the sound fades off and the TV clicks off. It then automatically recycles on again and the trouble repeats again, each time staying on for 15-30 seconds or less. Is this a serious problem or worth fixing? Thanks for your help!
Sometims several capacitors start going bad giving you the audio problem, but I don't remember the set turning itself off. That could be a secondary problem around the flyback transformer which may have a bad solder connection. I would check that first. Otherwise, I would be tempted to go with HDTV.
