This sounds like a defective flyback transformer. Expect a replacement part to run around $75. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost. Depending upon the set's age, it may not be worth the repair. If you can post the model number, I can get the part number and exact cost.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

I had this happen. (ontop of the button board infront shorting out). I took the back off, and if your looking at the screen it'll be on your right. There is a metal box with two ribbons coming out of them, I unplugged both and plugged both in, and now she turns on without any issues. Not sure why, but it works. Now if I could get some help finding the circut board with the front buttons on it. I.e channel up down and volume.

Possible short and safety is keeping the set from burning up. A service man should be able to find the short hopefully in a small amount of time.

Need a new Flyback installed or there is a whole in it. If you are handy turn off the lights and look at it with the lights off. see where the hole is and fill it with plastic epoxy.

TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.


check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.

need more info but it sound to be a cold solder problem,look at the circuit board closely for cracked solder joints. Resoldering any bad joints might just solve your problems, but be carefull there are very dangerous site inside a tv, if you dont know about tvs look for profecional assistances..good luck
