Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Tv does not turn on.

The tv does not turn on by remote or button on the tv. 32" RCA F32718YX01 is the model number.

I have a old RCA SRS 36 inch TV Model # F35750ST serial # 342368242 that now can't turn on. It clicks three times trying to turn on and then won't come on. No picture comes on the screen it remains dark. Any suggestions, is it worth repairing?

Re: Tv does not turn on.

There is probably a short or a near short loading the power supply circuit, a leaky capacitor, shorting diode, transistor,IC,LOPT etc. Have the set checked by a technician near you.

It is still worth repairing!

I have a 1993 36 inch RCA, model # P46151WK. TV was on and suddenly heard something pop and it started to smell like something burned inside. It wont turn on anymore.

You may have a fried horizontal output transistor and a defective flyback transformer. If indeed this set is 17 years old.......cheaper to replace him...sorry!

Picture on 36 inch toshiba tv out

I had the same problem on my 61" RCA TV... The switch for the power/channel changing buttons seems to be a faulty product... However if you are a little technical you can open up the front of the TV and disconnect the button panel from the tv and just use the remote to operate it.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

FPA lock stands for Front Panel Access lock similar to Parental Control/Child lock - it indicates that the buttons on the front of the TV are locked so that it cannot be operated accidentally by young children.

You would need to use the remote to deactivate this security feature. Normally, you would go into the Parental Controls menu and turn off the FPA lock.

If for some reason a password was used, then you would have to enter that password since without it you can't get into the Parental Controls menu.

On some versions, you can press "Menu" on the front panel and "Vol -" on the remote simultaneously for 3 seconds to clear the password. in others, it would require that you press and hold at the same time the Vol < button on the front panel and CLEAR button of the remote control for about 5sec. You would need to enter a new password the next time you access the Parental Control Menu.

Usually, steps involve are explained better in the user's manual which is available at the RCA (Support) website. You would need to enter the exact model number of your RCA TV.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
