RCA repair question

I have the above mentioned tv that we purchased in Jan. 2006. In June of 2007 the screen went blank. I had a tv repair person replace the light wheel (it took 45 days). Now the tv "hums" when it is on. It sounds like a fan motor is running. We did not have the noise before it was sent to be repaired. What do you suppose is the problem?

Screen goes blank intermittently on 60in Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000

I am having the same problem with my Sony. I bought it at Circuit City in November 2007 and the extended warranty, which I thought was for 4 years, has expired. Has anyone else had this problem, and how did you resolve it?

My tv made a popping sound, the screen went blank

Any set is repairable. It is the question of the cost and the availability of replacement parts.
It sounds like a component overheated and blew. Most likely there will be collateral damage where other components will also be damaged.
The failure could be in the power supply, or in any of the main drive circuits in the set.
You will have to call for a service estimate. In considering the age of this set, my preference would be to go out and get a descent LCD or Plasma set. The picture quality and performance of these new sets are far superior to the one you have!

Do we need a new TV?

I dont think this problem can be fixed without solder work or part replacement of convergence section. Its no just matter of fuse. You should get repair facility from concern service center because TV has dangrous voltages inside and qualified person knows how to deal with TV.

In the majority of cases when you'are unable to power up the TV, the power supply would the first place to start.
Check this site for cheaper power supply.
Good Luck.
