Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

I have sound but no opicture

I found a solution to my first problem of 3 clicks when the set is turned on but never actually comes on. I replaced the flyback, also the resistor, and cap that came with new flyback. Now I get sound but no picture. I can feel the static on the front of the screen and the picture tube is coming on. Is there a setting I am missing or did something else get fried. Originally the set got real bright, then shut off. I could see an arc at the back of the flyback when you turn the set on, corresponding to the three clicks.

Re: I have sound but no opicture

When you replaced the flyback the new flyback is shipped with the screen and focus controls set at minimum. These are the 2 controls on the flyback itself. Turn the set on and let it warm up a minute, then slowly turn up the screen (bottom) control with a small flat-head screwdriver. When the picture is around normal brightness, adjust the focus (top) control until the picture is nice and sharp. Then, turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and set the screen control until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture vanishes. Reset the brightness and contrast settings and your picture will be back to perfect.

teh 2 blinks indicate an overcurent condition. The most common cause of this is a shorted horizontal output transistor. Look for a 3-legged part attached to a heat sink close by the flyback transformer (part with red wire coming out of the top). Replace that part. That may resolve the problem. That part will be marked C5438 or something similar. If the marking is as I stated than the actual part number is 2SC5438.

Please realize that other defective parts can cause similar problems. I have just listed the most common. Please keep us posted.

My Sony KV-34HS510 Tv will not turn on

Sounds like a power supply problem. The TV is failing its POST (power on self test) and tripping a relay to protect itself. Time for a service call :-(

Blinks twice pause blinks 4 times

Dead or Shutdown symptoms.
Dead symptom reported to be caused by the following:
1. Dead.
Found Q601 & Q602 shorted, R615 open, and IC600 on the A Board were the cause of the symptom.

2. Dead.
Found D614, Zener diode, on B+ line was shorted.

3. Set shutdown and the standby LED blinks 3 then 5 times.
Found 200v line was low. Disconnected CN706 on the C Board and found 200v now
present on CN706/pin 7.
Found: IC702 (C board) shorted the 200 volt line.
HQ Comments: C541 on the A Board could become defective if the 200v line is shorted since
the polarity on the capacitor will become reversed. R553 fuse resistor could also be opened
on the A Board.

4. Error code of 4 blinks .
Dead set press power button you hear the relay and you see red led flash 3 times and stops? Has no HV or other action. Tech removed the back as no 200 volt supply, did unplug CN706 and now has 200volts. Tech did remove the IC702 and same it comes up so needs this IC.

5. Dead. 5 blinks then 3 blinks. Found shorted Damper diode D504. Q502 has a built in damper, as well.

of the transistor causing an intermittent connection.
Soldered the collector of Q606 and set returned to operation.
HQ Comments: Also refer to E30968554.

8. Dead. 5 blinks or 3 blinks
Found on the A Board D611 in the Power Supply open, and Hor. Output Q502 shorted.

9. Found Power Supply components D611 shorted causing Q600, Q601, and R615
to fail on the A Board.

16. Won't power up. LED Blinks 4 times, B+ is very low
B+ is at 49V, +15/-15 only coming up to about 1 volt.
Wth Hor Out disconnected B+ only comes up to 50v.
Found D611 on the A Board was the cause of the symptom.

TV turns on but no picture and only blinking remote LED senser?

Try hitting the side of the set while you are waiting for the pix to turn on,dont over do it and see if the set reacts,if it does you will be looking for loose conections in the main board or crt board,these solder points need to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service it will be something you can do but if not be safe and call for help,the repair should not be expensive right now.

No picture

If you know how to service TV sets then you have to first determine if the problems in the HI voltage sweep circuit or the video. Try first to turn up the screeb control. If you get a white opicture then you have HI voltage so you have a video or video drive circuit problem. your going to need a service manual as well as an ocilliscope. to trouble shoot this set. if you dont understand what Im saying PLEASE call an experienced tech to assist you in this repair. good Luck
