Re: RCA Guide Plus Gold Gemstar

The set tries 3 times to come on (3 blinks) if there a problem such as a short, it will cycle without turning on. Unfortunately your set is notorious for having bad flyback transformers. Most likely the horizontal output transistor is shorted as well. Common causes for your symptom are: LL05 (horiz out transformer) RCA part# 257805; TL 02 ( horiz output transistor) 2SC5148; and open connections on the printed circuit board at LL 04 and L14401 (coils) all of which can cause the horizontal output transistor to be shorted.

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at

Unless you are savvy with IC's you are going to have to go to the repair shop my friend. The crappy part is that the IC has a price tag of about $10.00 but a repair shop is going to nail you anywhere from $80.00-$120.00. Sorry for the bad news but it happens.
