RCA F36685 wont power on

This tv is a 2000 model year and it's the first time I had a problem with it.
Just came home one day and it won't turn on by the remote or button on the front of the set. If I unplug it and plug it back in again I can hear a slight bit of static out of the speakers for just a split second. Other wise no picture no audio. It's just dead.

Any ideas?

Turn on tv and no sound or picture, just a "beeping" sound

The main board to your TV has the fault. Check and replace it. The work is a skilled one, and not a user reparable. Contact any experienced service technician.

I have an RCA 36"

Hi, in most of these RCA TV, we found a common problem with that strange sound.
You need electronics skills to solve this problem. The sound coming from the TV ( back cover), caused by a faulty transformer T14401 location number, part number 241319, also a transistor horizontal output is shorted need be replaced. location Q14401 part number, part number 237470. This is a difficult and you may have to find a tv shop and ask for a previous estimate of money. I hope all this clear in my explanation and if you have further questions, I'll be here to help.

RCA p49622 will not power on at all

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The question will be, is the part still available? Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $150 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that most TVs that old have a very limited number of replacement parts still available. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Sound Fades, then TV shuts off then continues to recycle on & off

Sometims several capacitors start going bad giving you the audio problem, but I don't remember the set turning itself off. That could be a secondary problem around the flyback transformer which may have a bad solder connection. I would check that first. Otherwise, I would be tempted to go with HDTV.
