Question about RCA F36650 36" TV
My set made the infernal pop and then the picture went out, has the squeal even when not turned on. Did a vac out of dust.
There looks like a cap that is shrunken on the main board under the tube, haven't seen one like that before.
Any suggestions on the problem and fix and also does anyone know what pins to short to make sure all the power is out of this?
CaptC, those sets are infamous for that problem, you need to replace the following parts:
Flyback Transformer part # 257805
Horizontal output transistor part # 2SC5148
there is a coil off the base of the driver transistor I think it`s L4401 that should be removed from the set and scrape the wax off the legs then re-install and re-solder it and you should be good as new, good luck
