Question about RCA F36685 36" TV

1 Answer

Sound Fades, then TV shuts off then continues to recycle on & off

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.

I have an RCA 36"


Hi, in most of these RCA TV, we found a common problem with that strange sound.
You need electronics skills to solve this problem. The sound coming from the TV ( back cover), caused by a faulty transformer T14401 location number, part number 241319, also a transistor horizontal output is shorted need be replaced. location Q14401 part number, part number 237470. This is a difficult and you may have to find a tv shop and ask for a previous estimate of money. I hope all this clear in my explanation and if you have further questions, I'll be here to help.
