Question about Televison & Video
Chasis number: CTC169BJ5 Service Number: PS35653LW1 Model: PS35653 Serial Number: 323550072 Audio Video Equipment: QD337701
The ctc169 was the workhorse of the RCA line being used in over 300 models----sounds like a possible audio output circuit---a lot of parts are no longer available and I would be careful having a shop fix a set this old.
YOU "might" be able to get around this with a surround sound system used with a cable box.

SOURCE: TV will not power on
Sorry, I had the same thing happen to me. The problem is a chip that has blown on the main control board in the unit. The board must be replaced, but I checked and as the service place told you, parts are not available. Looks like it is time for a new TV

this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.
or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
