Question about RCA F36650 36" TV
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.
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.
