RCA 36' tube tv won't turn on

I have an RCA 36' tv purchased in '95. Worked fine until I moved it from one room to another - didn't drop it or smash it into any walls but it sure is a bear to move. Now it won't turn on. Disconnected power cord from both the outlet (outlet is good, by the way) and tv and reconnected several times. Every few tries doing that I'll hear 8 or 10 electronic-like clicks as soon as I plug it into the outlet but no luck turning on the set. Any ideas anyone?

Possible that a fuse blew while transferring tv, most like to happen despite care in handling if tv was on for a while, kind of like moving a light bulb that is hot and suddenly filament breaks when you move the bulb slightly. Other than that I'd say it's a good time to get a new tv just in time too for the digital transition.

Has rainbow lines on tv screen


shadow mask is warped. tv might have been dropped. crt is bad(picture tube). try deguassing it. if you dont know what that is take it to your local service center. the rainbow effect is a magnetic field of some sort. try unplugging and move to a different location. could be a speaker too close to tv.

I have an RCA 36 inch tv, the color is messed up, it has a round circle and it will not change channels


If the set wasn't dropped or physically dammaged the chances of it being the picture tube is very small.
The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. $35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Tv worked until I unplugged it and moved it, now it won't turn on.


Ok try connecting it to another plug see what happens if that does not work then more than likely your tv set blew the main fuse which is located on the power supply right where the power cord comes into your tv set, you can get that fuse in any electronic store and change it out yourself just be very careful,hope this helps thank you.

I got an RCA 27" TV from someone who had moved it to another room but found it was "blurry" after moving it. I brought it home and tried all the suggestions I had found online but it was still blurry. I looked at the back of the TV and found 2 tiny knobs on the right (from the back view) which I began to fiddle with while looking at the screen. It fixed the blurriness immediately! I now have a beautiful screen.

If the glass picture tube is cracked it is not repairable. In some cases it would be possible that the tv would still work if it has a cracked glass but it would not be advisable to use it as it could allow x-ray radiation to escape. The tube is a vacuum and a cracked tube would lose it's vacuum (**** air inside) and cause it to instantly burn out when turned on. Sorry :(
