Question about RCA F36450 36" TV
Hi, when i turn on my TV, i hear a clicking noise and at the same time ,on the screan, i see some horizontal black lines flashing .maybe 2-3 lines. not always at the same place.. so that happen only during 5 sec and after it stop. this problem happen only when i turn on the TV, but not every time but the majority of the time. i called a repair guy and i don't remember what he did but he putted a lubrifiant on something. and that worked! during maybe 1 year, that problem was gone.... but it started again!! i called him again and that time, he changed that piece ( sorry, i don't know the name of that piece...). and that worked too!! during 1 year again... and the problem is starting again... before calling the guy again, i want to know if that can be solve for good or that problem will always come back after? that problem can be dangerous? if I wait too long, my tv can blow off? LOL.. thanx!
What you are hearing is the high voltage arcing a bit. This is often caused by dust buildup on the high voltage components, & is not harmful. A good cleaning with compressed air will cure it, but this is not a do it yourself job, because dangerous voltages are present inside any TV.
