Question about RCA F25216BC 25" TV

25in RCA F25216BC Jan/99 won't turn on/ no power

I was given this TV today by a neighbor and it won't power up or do anything. I'm very familiar with building pc's and replacing parts and troubleshooting them but have never opened a tv set before to repair one. I enjoy tinkering and I thought I would try to fix this one just for fun. Does anyone have a suggestion for me as where I can start? Replace powersupply? Or am I wasting my time with a 10 yr old tv and should just toss it to the curb? Thanks!

    Thanks Clarko2002! I took off the back of the tv and just as you suggested, the fuse was blown! What an easy fix! It was loaded with dustbunnies as well but a couple of quick shots of air from my air compressor got it clean as new. Should help it run alot cooler as well. I wonder how many tv's get junked by people when it was something as simple a a 20 cent fuse! Also makes me wonder how many people get ripped off at repair shops with huge bills when it was something so simple! Going to put it in my boy's bedroom; a big upgrade from his 19 inch.

I have a 2002 rca hdtv model#D52130yx1 that won,t turn on.


The power supply might have given out. It wasn't uncommon for that area of TVs to do that. If plugging it into another outlet does not work, then you might have a dead tv on your hands.

The tv has a high voltage problem, sets that last ten years or more have come to the point where a new tv should be considered, because even if you fix it there is good chance something else will go wrong, remember the parts are twelve years old.

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

F25216bc RCA 25 inch TV. Color is distorted with a heavy red tint


You either have a bad CRT or a Shorted Red Output IC/Transistor. One other possibility is if
someone turned the Screen Control down if it is accessible from the back of the set.
Hope this helps,

If you ONLY have an Antenna or Cable input, you are going to need a Video & Audio to RF converter.. This connects to ya DVD Video & Sound OUT, and then connects to ya sets Antenna IN. This device converts ya Video & Audio signal to Radio Frequency Signal that can be "Received" by ya set. (Basically a low power TV transmitter) This is the only way I know of, if ya haven't got any other Inputs into a set.
