RCA 35" tube tv buzzing


Hello,

Its probably the power coil. It it's buzzing it wont be long before it goes. you can try degaussing it if the TV has that ability otherwise you would have to bring it into a shop no idea on the estimated repair cost.

Thanks

RCA TV, model number 32V550T. No picture but sound is fine.


hiya

this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.


or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

Please see http://www.fixya.com/support/t1011937-transformers. It sounds like your flyback transformer is not properly soldered down/is failing.

Sound at power on


The sound you are hearing is the degausing coil which will vibrate for a second when the tv is turned on. This part demagnetizes the picture tube and this sound is really quite normal. Depending on the position of this coil it may vibrate against the front cabinet of the tv and may sound loud at times. If this really bothers you then you need to have the rear cover removed and have it repositioned a bit do it won't vibrate so loudly. Or you can enjoy the buzz for the short time it happens and not worry about it.

If it's between 5-10 secs, that's normal. You will turn the tv on and hear a loud (buzz/hum) that is the picture tube firing up, once it's fired up, it has a few more seconds until your picture comes up fully. That is about 5-10 secs from pushing the power button.

If it's taking longer than that, your picture tube may be going out.

I had a 36XBR250 and it took about 10 secs to fire up and show a picture, and it was 5 1/2 years old.

TV wont come on


Most likely cause would be a blown fuse on the power supply if you are getting no lights on the front, no response from the buttons, and no warmth from the back of the set. First check that not only is the power socket in the wall working, but also that the plug on the TV power cord is not faulty or distorted so it doesn't make the circuit when plugged into the wall, also if it has a fused plug, check that. Then if you feel up to taking the cover off, make sure the set is unplugged and leave it for a few minutes first. take off the back cover (usually a few screws around the base of the set, but it should be obvious) follow where the power cord enters the box, and about the first thing it should connect to is likely to have a fuse. Probably a couple of metal spring clips with a glass tube type fuse sitting in them. The fuse should have a rating stamped on it and you should be able to get a replacement at most hardware stores, but make sure you get the same type as well as rating. If a replacement fuse doesn't cure the problem then the next thing to suspect would be the transformer and rectifier circuit - the fuse should have protected these, but sometimes it doesn't work that way. If you need help checking these then please ask again, but I suspect the fuse is your problem. Hope this helps you out, please ask again if you need more info :)
