TV won't turn on

I have an RCA F20580wn. An oldie but, goodie that I inherited from my folks when I went to college. I have been unsuccessful in locating the manual in the house or online. I just recently moved and prior to that it worked perfectly. However, now it won't turn on. I want to say the first time I tried to turn it on I heard it "click" like it usually does when turned on but, it was noisy and I could be wrong because it hasn't "clicked" since that first possible time. Any thoughts? I follow specific directions well but am not very well versed in electronic thingamajigs. Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: My TV will not turn on

I agree with techman. It is not a simple problem which a layman can resolve with his home tools kit. Best to get professional help. It will save you lots of bother (and money). The problem is definitely in the Power Supply (SMPS) circuits or the Horizontal Oscillator circuits.

YOU might have a bad relay or a bad solder connection in the relay control circuit. Sounds like a bad solder joint. Stargazer

SOURCE: Power button makes a click, click sound

The sound is coming from a failed flyback auto transformer. You will need to replace that.

SOURCE: clicking noise in the back of tv and wont come on no standby ligh

The TV is in protection mode because of a fault with moving it and then coming on briefly I would suspect that the fault is a dry joint ( a solder joint which has fractured) finding it can be time consuming but it is most likely to be around the caps in the line output stage which need resoldering.

SOURCE: RCA 36' tube tv won't turn on

possible that a fuse blew while transferring tv, most like to happen despite care in handling if tv was on for a while, kind of like moving a light bulb that is hot and suddenly filament breaks when you move the bulb slightly. Other than that I'd say it's a good time to get a new tv just in time too for the digital transition.

Resetting Channels without Original Remote

Buy a universal remote.
If there is no input button on the remote or TV, try the channels between 90-110, some RCA TVs have the A/V in there somewhere.

RCA f20580wn 20" TV about 20 years old

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.

The viewfinder is dead

Thats an oldie but still a goodie.. this camcorder was made by Hitachi for RCA and its doubtfull that theres any parts available for it. You are probably gonna have to look around for someone with old camcorders laying around and swap out the veiwfinder . these units are also famous for the belts to go bad in them. if you take this unit to a servicer they probably have a flat rate as I've seen online under camcorder repairs unless you think you can do it your self?? Good Luck PS If I get a good look at the veiwfinder and if theres a plug or is it hard wired I may have one as I got several camcorders around the place i use for opsolete parts.
