Re: RCA F36674ET - Only beeps when turned on

Clearly shows problem in deflection area both horizontal and vertical section. Horizontal lines is due to vertical section problem and making bbzzzz is due to horizontal output transistor short and sometimes LOT SHORT.

I have a Mitsubishi VS-5077 the screen has gone black, it started out with the darker colors going green, I was having to boost the britenees, than a line would flash vert. across the screen, now no...

You definitely have bad solder grounds. I have repaired a few of these. You will need a TV tech pull the boards out and resolder them. The worst board would be the one on the left [signal board, has rca jacks. rf connector]. And they may as well solder the second board. You will have a restored TV when completed. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

sounds like a vertical problem, usually you'll see one white line across the screen, but one I worked on would come on and the bottom half of the picture was gone and there were lines across the top of the screen.

If you know how to solder & can find the vertical output chip then you could try resoldering the pins. If this doesn't fix it then it needs new parts.

There's a very narrow line (white) appears at the very top of the screen when the picture scene is mostly black. A verticle adjustment should fix it but where is it?? RCA F36TF720

it may be an electrolytic cap problem as most newer sets are controlled by an I.C. chip for horiz and vert timing/size/linerity
