    We were just watching it and the sound went out. Now it just ticks right when we turn it on.

    I have the same problem with mine, after it's unplugged the ticking continues for a couple more seconds until it fades away.

    Could you please give some details about the repair, my RCA 36" Home Theatre Model F36676ET is doing the exact same thing. It was working fine, then one day when I tried to turn it on, I just hear a few quiet beeps / clicks then nothing. No sound, no picture, no green power light. If I try again, it repeats same symptoms.

    Thanks in advance.

Lg tv ticking

There is some shorted component/s in the circuit board. The short circuit protection circuit detects this short, and shuts down your TV again and again. That is why you hear these 'tick' sounds repeatedly. Contact any experienced service technician to get your TV repaired. The work is skilled one, which need sound knowledge in electronics, and work experience.

I have an RCA F36676ET that has a broken cable connection. TV works fine with DVD player but satellite connection not recognized. Can the cable connection be replaced? Can I do it myself?

If you mean the cable connector is broken off, then yes, that can be replaced. A company called MCM Electronics sells replacement connectors, but the repair requires soldering skills. Incorrectly done, the repair attempt can create even more problems. I suspect your satellite receiver has A/V outputs like the DVD player. Why not connect the receiver the same way as the DVD player and forget about the cable connection? You'll get improved picture and sound that way. If the set has only a single set of A/V inputs, you can cheat and use "Y-adapters" available at Radio Shack to connect the two sources to the same jacks, or you can get an A/V switch to do it.

Part #H Q401 1511936A

A common cause is a failure in the horizontal output stage. I have had a defective flyback transformer cause this.

Also, when the flyback fails it sometimes takes out the horizontal output transistor and some other parts with it. It is possible that the power supply has some damage from the failure.

32 RCA makes popping sounds

It needs a new FLY BACK transformer. That is what you are looking at. The origionals are not made for the set any longer but insist on having a generic on installed by a local TV shop. I just put one into a RCA 31" and it works nice. Don't throw away the TV. Get it fixed. MAKE SURE YOU INSIST THEY USE THE GENERIC ONE! THEY DO WORK!
