Question about RCA F32450 32" TV

1 Answer

Fuse blown fuse was blown after brown out. replaced fuse and blew agian right away. replaced voltage regulator stk730-150. fuse is now holding but T.V. won't power on. Tech Terryfic had me check 5v at 8pin eeprom and I could not find 5v on eeprom. I have 163v across main filter cap. Doe's anyone have an Idea where the open could be that drives the eeprom. Thanks Terryfic for your help but still down. Getting closer! Doug (Mudfish)

Re: Fuse blown

Ok well i would check for a open diode in the main ac to dc power supply then check all resistors that look lick they may be low ohms but high watt check to see if you might have a open pico fuse from primary power supply to the regulator check and see if you have stand by voltage this would be easily checked on the power off oan on button get back to me k

How to repair a fuse blown hisense tv set

If the fuse inside the set has blown up, there must be some reson for that. If it has been blown up due to a surge voltage, replacing the fuse will make the set right. If there is some short circuited components in the power supply regulator section, the newly inserted fuse will blow up, as soon as you switch ON the set. If so, thorough check to power supply section should be done, before replacing an other fuse.

Dead Set after power surge

Check the power supply transformer primary driver transistor and the associated components (some diodes and capacitors, resistors, an optocoupler maybe) and the rectifier diodes (or a bridge) and capacitors at the transformer secondary, what you are looking for is a short circuit, however, the short may as well be in another section of the circuit board (a shorted component may sometimes have signs of damage caused by heat, but this is not a rule).

Hope you can find out what it is...

RCA TV blown fuse


you have bad Rectifier Diode or Ic regulator.. check first the unregulated power supply before you go to regulated power section! then check,.

No power no picture no sound

You have a shorted power component. Probably either the voltage regulator or the Horiz. output transistor. Both will be mounted to a heat siink of some type. The Horiz. power circuits along with the flyback transformer power up 90% of most TV sets.

No power/RCA ctc187cl

Check for 5 volts present at pins of EEPROM IC. ( 8 pin-center
front) = no 5 volts = Re-check power supply components such as AC in resistor 2.7 Ohm ?....Or 5 volts ok,then suspect EEPROM corrupted........part # 223957 ( install 8-pin socket,then re-plug in original, if that doesn't clear it, plug in
new part) Use pre-programmed after-market replacement,if you 
can get it.....Let me know....T.

Fuse location on tv

a fuse is a small glass tube about 3/4" to 1". it is located near the end of the power cord inside the tv. it is located in the power board supply circuit. there are several reason why fuse blew up. 1. sudden surge current/voltage in your area 2. shorted in either power supply or horizontal deflection circuits. when replacing fuse, be sure to change it with the same value. but if after replacement has been done and the fuse blew again, there is a short in the circuit as stated in reason no. 2. refer to a qualified service technician if you are not inclined with this job. good luck!

TX-R3079WHX/XAA Blown fuse

greetings from belize make good checks in your power supply replace your voltage regulator it has an short which is activated after accumulating heat.change the horizontal transistor.and the bias diode the feeds to the B+ to the flyback.if that does not solve the problem replace the flyback.your problem is intermittent so you cannot check voltage just replace components matter of fact replace all the components in the power supply you can buy a kit from in miami florida.good luck.

Toshiba 27A30 that blows Fuse

Jeff, If your not a technician please dont mess with the set as you can get seriuoly hurt by experimenting. And replacing a fuse that is black is only going to blow again and possibly cause more problems and damage the set more then it already is. Your problem is a shorted B+ rectifier or a capacitor or voltage regulator IC. If you don,t know what this is, or you don't know how to solder, as well as unsolder, Please seek out a pro to assit you with this repair. Good Luck
