If it weren't for the high pitch whining noise. I would say it probably is an internal fuse inside the chasis. It is rated at 1.5 to 2.0 amps. With the whining noise it sounds like a trouble shooting bench
job. Problems occur when a electrical/electronics device is turned on and turned off. Inrush voltage,
when it is turned on, can go up to three times more than normal. This also happens at turn off. Solid state components usually fail at this time. I don't feel that this is a problem that can be fixed in the home.---BBB

The TV will bring to turn on but then it sounds like it loses power and makes a high pitch noise and powers off, no picture ever comes on the TV, the screen stays black the whole time. The TV is a RCA...


it could one of two things. The power supply is failing which is most common. Or the picture tube is gone. Both would most likely cost you more to fix than the TV is worth. Call around and get a few quotes. Good luck

My rca tube tv has a high pitch whine when i plug it in no picture also


Hello you have a shorted Horizontal output transistor, also if you replace it also have the Flyback transfromer replaced also, these parts work in conjunction with each other, and if one goes bad its best to replace them both.

10-year-old 32" RCA PIP TV just blinked off one morning after about 30 minutes. It makes a continuous high pitch sound, and the on/off switch is completely unresponsive. I assume this is a picture tube and...


It's not the picture tube(especially if image was good b4 it went dead). The high pitch noise is the power supply whinning because it's shorted or overloaded. I just fixed one of these sets - replaced the horiz. o/p transistor and flyback estimate around $120.00-$160.00

Same problem, high pitched noise over regular sound and no pictur


No guarantees with this diagnosis. But it sounds like an HT ( high tension) leak This is often caused by the lead becoming partly unplugged ( being bumped or moved) and because of dust buildup it arcs making a high pitched hissing whistle.Ther lamp may also have been affected by the HT leak. The safest option for you is to call a service technician to it, as opening it up could cosntitute a a danger to the unskilled.

RCA Model f27650 High pitch squeal


the high pitch squeal indicates shorted component/s. the transformer goes hot co'z its being overloaded by the shorted component, it too could be the one creating the squeal!!

if you have experience with electronic troubleshooting, try to test some of the components particularly on the secondary part of the transformer.
Be careful and make sure the TV set is unplugged.
test for shorted diodes and transistors, if you're in doubt of your readings try to desoldering one leg of the diode then proceed with the testing/measuring. replace any of the bad components you find exactly with same part number or replacements with the same rating.

spend more time on it resoldering some other cold soldered components.

Absolutely right about the transistor and also check any adjacent resistors to the transformer and to the line output transistor. Good luck.

RCA F32650 won't power up/ high pitched squeel


HARRomeo, the horizontal output transistor will usually make the set have a high pitched sound, as that is the power supply being loaded down, if you habe any solid state repair experience, thats where you should start. As you should take out the transistor and measure it with an ohm meter and see if it is shorted. There are several reasons the transistor will short. Most of the time , it is the high voltage transformer also know as the flyback transformer. Also a drive problem could cause this to shprt also. In some cases the power supply itself could have a bad regulator, or a bad capacitor in the circcuit. Bottom line if you have the experience, you will need to get a schematic, and trouble shoot the sweep circuits first. if you do not have any solid state repair experienc3, Please play it safe and seek out the help of a trained repair person. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.
