RCA 32V524T- Blown fuse?

A couple of days ago my RCA 32V524T television map a loud zapping noise, and then just shut off. It sounded like it blew a fuse, but I'm not positive. When I unplug it (or turn off my power strip), and then power it back on, it sounds like it is about to turn on, but does nothing and the power button on top blinks. The only way to turn off the blinking light is to unplug it. I purchased this tv in May 2006, so it is no longer under warranty, and I really don't want to spend a ton of money fixing it. Is there a way to tell if I did blow a fuse? Model#:RCA 32V524T Chassis: ATC010A April 2006 Thank you for any information you might be able to provide!!

    I have the EXACT same problem, except mine did not make the loud zapping noise. I bought it in July 2006, so it's no longer under warranty. I'm very upset about this. Any help would be wonderful!

    My RCA 32V432TY, I got in 01/06, just shut off one night, went black, wouldn't come on again. I pulled the case, and my t.v. fuse was blown, I also checked outlet, and powerstrip. I replaced the bad fuse, the fuse blew out again. I'm really upset with these products, and the companies, now a days (names I grew up with) , they make products so cheap, that don't even last 3 years, that's sad, I won't buy another RCA after this.

If you blew the fuse, the TV would do absolutely nothing - no lights, no sounds, nothing. It could be that the loud zapping noise you heard was the high voltage transformer arcing or shorting out. This could have caused the horizontal output transistor to short, and the set will not start as a result. You should have the set serviced by a qualified tech.

TheTV made a loud pop and the screen went black. Now I have blinking red lights.


You probably blew up a capacitor. Unplug the television and open up the back. Check for bad caps. You'll probably find a puffy one. Check the fuses to see if they're blown. If you find a blown fuse, start looking for bad diodes or a bad transistor. If you don't know what I'm talking about then don't ruin a good television set by poking your nose inside and blowing something else up or end up zapping yourself when you touch the wrong thing. Take it to a professional and get it fixed. Good luck.

CAN IT BE FIX?


Sounds like a bad horizontal transistor and flyback transformer . Do you know how to unsolder and or solder ? If so you might have a chance . If no the avg. to get repaired is around $90.00 to $130.00 so shop around as some shops will charge more . The parts you could buy your self for around $30.00 to 40.00 . Good luck and if you think you could fix let me know and see if i can get you part numbers .

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on


Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.


check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.
