Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.

Hello dcook,

Yes, you are right. A good quality TV set should last for a few more years. Unfortunately I do not have enough information from your description of the problem to even try to make an educated guess of what could be wrong with your TV set. There are many possibilities. There are also a few things you can do to fix the problem: 1.- The obvious first: Check with the manufacturer or place of purchase if the item is still under warranty. The user's manual always offers assistance phone number(s). I do not know if you have extended warranty for the set, if so, that will pretty much take care of the problem. 2.- Contact a reputable, licensed/insured repair company to give you a repair estimate. There are many repair companies nowadays that will go to your home, troubleshoot the problem, give you an estimate and even sometimes repair it on site. A lot of them will reimburse you the cost of the estimate/service call if they repair it. Try to get at least two opinions/estimates for your protection.
Hope this helps. Let me know if we can be of further assistance.

You have a bad vertical deflection IC and/or bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. The parts are inexpensive and can easily be replace by a service technitian.

Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.

RCA F31672ET No Power only a whining noise when plugged in Please help


Most likely you have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor. The whistling sound that you hear is the power supply telling you that it has a short in one of the circuits it powers. Most likely the circuit mentioned above. Stargazer

Picture Shrinks


It is in the power supply or I would guess most likly in the horizontal sweep section of the tV set. MOST of the time, if the power supply is going lower in voltage, the set will shrink in width,BUT will also shrink in vertical size. If this is not happening, then I would say it is in the horizontal drive circuit. This is not a circuit a user should be experimenting with, as this is the HIGH VOLTAGE circuit and can pack a mean punch! Please if the sets less the 4 to 5 years old you may want to concider an estimate or replacing the set. Its all up to you. GOOD LUCK
