Question about RCA F31672ET TV

1 Answer

RCA F31672et is not turning on sometimes/now green on screen

About 1 moth ago the TV went off by itself, then went right back on. A week later i started having to wiggle the cord in the back to get it to go on. Then i noticed the picture was getting fuzzy around the edges, and yesterday when i made it go on by wiggling, part of the screen turned green, like around the outer edges. I've been told by a few people to forget repair and buy a new one. Are they right?

Its your Tuner. There is a chance that since this has been going on so long that your IC that controls the Tuner could be shot. For a Geek this could be a semi easy fix. The parts for the most part are cheap. The problem is identifying what is what via the net. There is a chance that the IC isn't shot yet but you need to get out your solder gun and get to work by re-soldering your connections

The backlight controller is most likely faulty. It could be bad capacitors again, or the inverter board itself may need to be repaired - possibly faulty inverter(s). Try shining a torch close to the screen and see if you can see anything on the screen.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
