My RCA tv mod RLC3257B will not turn on. I have power to the power board.

I have checked that power is going to the power board and looked for bloated capacitors (did not find any) the switch is ok but I could not find a fuse.

You have to find out if you have your standby voltage. Normally you have STBY 5V written beside the connectors. this 5 volt should be there when the tv is off. This 5 V communicate the info to the mainboard that you have press the power button and then reply back to power every circuit. So after a power press you should get other voltages to come up. You should then check those voltages on the power supply connectors. I suggest you to read a basic troubleshooting guide that is very well explain, certainly better that i can do here...

SOURCE: viewsonic n3251w - no power

A lot of TVs are having their power boards go bad due to a poor brand of capacitor (CapXon usually).

If small problems are noticed with the tv, the solution is to replace the capacitors. However, once the TV gets to the point where there is no power at all any more (not even a stand-by light) then the power supply has to be replaced.

Visit Viewsonic's website or call your local Viewsonic repair shop to get a price on this board. They are usually under $100.

If power LED at its front panel lit when you switch the main power switch ON, the fault should be with its main board. If not, the fault will be with its main power regulator [SMPS] board.

RCA Model: RLC3257B just stopped working


I had the same exact problem. The tv had not worked in months. I tested the capacitors by slightly charging them with an ohmmeter and they all tested fine. When I plugged the tv back in, it began working perfectly. It turns out it had been plugged into an outlet that was poorly grounded. I am not sure why the charging of the capacitors rectified the problem but its a cheap fix

Plasma TV mod PDP-5016HD not turning on


The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

RCA 62" mod p46770ck need


Now I know the rest of the story: After I went to see the TV I was told it had happened after a storm the next day the set was dead. She had already recieved the insurance money. She said she did not want to spend much money on it as she obtained the set at a garage sale for 60 bucks 6 years ago. As I looked into the circuit board I noticed evidence of water damage and looking up the case and on top, yup, thats why she got it so cheap. I do think it is lightly damaged. As a grandmother of a close friend I didn't Intend to charge her but she gave me some bucks and the insides of the tv. I'm sure their isn't much time on it. If any one wants some parts on a 1993 RCA mod p46770ck (48" screen) contact me thru snailmail @ Whiskers, rr1bx57a zip 64632 Include your ph.# and I will call you. (I don't use the computer every day)

Tv will not power up


no reset button ,sorry. The problem you describe is pretty common with this model as its a fault in the horizontal drive circuit or in the main power supply and without the proper service manual as well as the prober tools and equipment this set its not gonna get fixed. there are no panels or user changable boards as it is a solid state set. ptscorp.com could repair this board or exchange it with a referbished board but it would still requir some adjustment that a user may not be able to handle. time to call the pro.. Sorry couldnet help ya more.. Good Luck.
