Question about RCA Televison & Video
Ouch - - More often than not, you will find that this is a capacitor 'venting'.
Because of the way they are made - - they are not completely sealed, and when theres a problem they can 'blow'
Sounds like you have a problem with the set, but the Capacitor will not blow (which it should as a fail safe....) If you are able, open the set - while wearing safety glasses (Sods law says it blows when your'e looking at it !!! CAREFUL )
You should be able to locate the faulty part by sound and sight.
Once you have isolated it - Power down, and unplug the set... You can 'DE-SOLDER' the capacitor (Again - Make Sure its unplugged) You will be able to replace the Capacitor yourself for a matter of Pennies - Seriously ..PENNIES...
CAUTION - - Do not touch any 'thick' wires - They carry High tension Voltage from a power board... If possible - allow the TV to stand for a day or two unplugged before attempting to remove the faulty component.
Please rate this response - Kind Regards
