This is a very common problem with RCA tV sets. But unfortanatly, RCA is no longer made in this country or even owned by RCA anymore. They are a Canadian company called Thompson Corp and could not give two hoots about any problems with TV sets sold here in america. I say this from experience and try to contact them and file a complaint. ther customer service is rude and basicly calls us idiots! Alot of class action suits are pending or have been dropped as for the amount of sets they company have sold,They have attorneys working for them and delaying the cases. It is really the fault of the US Judges that are total morons about these things and try to go by un written laws. They dont have a clue as most of the US goverment does not. Your problem is not a power supply problem, But a high voltage transformer and a horizontal output transistor, and the reason why the estimate was so high, is because the tranformer is no longer available. Thats why the estimate is so high. Because who in there right mind would spend so much on a set as this. You can buy a 32" RCA(BUT I WOULD NOT BUY TRASH)At Wally World for less the $250.00 bucks! I no longer accept RCA TVs in for repair as replacement parts are so much money and im not proud to say I work on RCA TV sets. Total garbage sets!!

I AM SORRY ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS WITH YOUR TV... AS IT IS YOU BOUGHT YOURS AT APPROXIMATELY THE SAME TIME THAT I BOUGHT MINE. I STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THING YOU DID ABOUT 6 MONTHS AFTER I PURCHASED IT. BUT THEN I THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO SOMETHING MY NIECES HAD DONE TO THE TV. MY DAD TRIED TO FIX IT AND IT WORKED FOR A WHILE AND THEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE 2006 IT WENT COMPLETELY BISERK!!! NOW I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO GET THE CONTROL PANEL.

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,

the tv has one part of the power supply working this is needed to have the microcontroller ready to work. But the tv needs more than that for work im talking 'bout the high voltage power supply who is now damaged. the parts required depends on the diagnosis in the bench but at least two are needed. the cost of this repair of course depends in how many parts are going to be replaced, but i concider this repair kind of average in this technology.
