TV won't turn on

RCA TV Model #F38310YX5 will not turn on. When power is pressed, it clicks, then it sounds like a quiet "chirp" and then it clicks off again, picture never comes on. Not sure it worth it to put money into as it is a few years old, however, it belongs to my 72 year old mother on a fixed and limited monthly income.

    Well....thanks for the input... I appreciate it,,,,she already has a digital tv (HDTV) which is the one on the blink. It was manufactured in May of 2002, before RCA starting supplying walmart with "junk" (so i've heard) so it should still be a good tv. If it costs a few hundred to fix, it would be worth it over the cost of a new one....

This TV is for ***********, and she is 72 and probably the TV is her main lifeline to the world outside her home.

So, for *********** who is 72, why not opt to make her a present of a nice new digital TV? It might be a sacrifice on your part, but my experience has been that the sacrifices that mothers make for their children far outweigh the cost of hundreds of televisions.




good luck

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,

No picture or sound - TV makes chirping noise


The chirping sound is the power supply coming up then breaking down because there is a short somwhere in the high voltage. The most common fail in this area is the horizontal output is shorted ( 237470 ) but what cause this short could be simple cold solder joints or the High voltage transformer ( 239111 ) If you have noway to "ring" the flyback change both parts

Tv went dead while viewing, will not power back up


You have a short somewhere in the load for the power supply. Probably the horizontal output transistor and the flyback transformer. You need to have it checked out by a tech. You may want to get an estimate. Stargazer
