My rca tube tv has a high pitch whine when i plug it in no picture also

Hello you have a shorted Horizontal output transistor, also if you replace it also have the Flyback transfromer replaced also, these parts work in conjunction with each other, and if one goes bad its best to replace them both.

Tv powers on but light just blinks and no picture or volume

A blinking power light would indicate a problem on the chassis board located inside the tv. Possibly a failed flyback or other electronic component. Its not cost effective to repair when you can invest in new tv for the same cost as repairing the defective tv. I should also mentioned the danger of dyi troubleshooting of the components inside the tv. I do not recommend unless you are familiar with properly discharging the tube to avoid electrical shock.

RCA F32650 32" TV Problem:

The flyback is a a block with some wires coming from it. One of the wire is a big red wire that goes to the picture tube. The FBT is usually on the right rear of the circuit board.

Please be careful when working around the FBT as there are extremely high voltages present - in excess of 25K.

I would suggest you take it to a service shop as when the FBT goes, other parts are usually gone too.

Heres the fix for your set, replace the following 2 parts:

1) flyback transformer RCA part number 257805
2) horizontal output transistor RCA part number 237470
you must be proficient at soldering & un-soldering or you can`t replace these yourself, be advised that the anode lead coming from the top of the flyback transformer can carry a VERY NASTY shock if not discharged properly before trying to remove it from the picture tube, I`d strongly advise you to call a tech unless your familiar with this type of repair, BMW Rider
