Re: RCA Guide plus gemstar T.V.

So the tv screen is on after the noise? Does it end up shutting off?

Our Guide Plus shows no listings. We have gone

This is For Guide Plus that comes with ATI TV Tuners

I got this in an e-mail from Macrovision and IT WORKS!!!
I deleted the files they said, and got a new error message, so I reinstalled Guide plus, left out that step, and GUIDE PLUS IS BACK!!

Please try belows instructions to see if that helps. Please back up any data and registry before going forward. We take no responsibility for any wrong doing. Please follow instructions carefully.

My RCA TV went blank and has a high pitch noise.

it's probably not the tube. Sounds like something is shorting the B+ from the power supply. Could be the Horizontal Output transistor or the Flyback transformer. Do you know how to find these components? I could be a rectifier diode on the secondary of the power supply as well. If you know what you're doing check those with a meter. If you don't know what you're doing, ask someone who does.

Good Luck.

When my rca 36F530 tv is plugged in it makes a high pitched buzzing noise picture does not come on

There is a short circuit in the high voltage circuit. the transformer who helps to create the high voltage or his power transistor is damage. replacement needed. the repair is not expensive, because the parts are average repair. Ask for an estimate.
