32 RCA makes popping sounds

32 RCA Entertainment Series TV started to make little tiny ticking sounds and the screen would flicker real quick each time, then shorty after that it began to make loud popping cracking sounds from the back and the screen would flicker big time and the TV would shut off and the popping would continue for a little while, turn it back on and the big popping sounds again.etc. Took back off (outside) and plug TV in to look and you can see a big blue spark coming from a white plastic box with a metal bar on it, a large red wire comes from this thing up to the top of the TV and into the Tube part. Is this a DIY job or just toss the TV? Thanks

Re: 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!

My 32 in rca entertainment series tv power button flashes on and off trys to power on but doesnt can feel static come threw the screen thats about it

you can try taking the back off and dust the innards with compressed air from a air compressor. make sure you get the screws right around the a/v hoookup area in the back. stay clear of the thick yellow or red high voltage line and the box it goes to on the motherboard. If it still does it and your sentimental, take it to the tv shop for an estimate. Pawn shops have those 32 inch 200 lb monsters for cheap, dont forget the hand truck!

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at
