    thanks..anything i replaced the hor.output tran. and when i turned it on it did what it should do noise..then about 25 to 30 sec. later it made that squel and turned off. its still the same and the new hor. output is blown again..didn't check the voltage transformer,any suggestions...

  • james165 Sep 11, 2009

    Yeah i know,when you say high voltage tran. is that also called the flyback, and can you test them somehow to see if it is bad?

  • james165 Sep 11, 2009

    do you know how to check the high voltage tran. to see if its good,the hor.out.tran.was blown.

    If it blew the new transistor either the high voltage transformer is bad or something else in that circuit---hard to do much with sets like this because no schematics seem to be available and most of the boards are no longer available.

    not a solution but first--all these RCA sets have a three strikes and you are out--means they will try to turn on 3 times and if not they shut down--the high pitched sound suggests a shorted horz. l output transistor======some of these sets have a problem where the high voltage transformer goes and takes the transistor with it---if you have a meter to measure resistance I can tell you where to look. Do not take this the wrong way---these are very poorly made sets--I refuse to repair them==junk.. Aside from that--if there is anything I can do to help you let me know. SD TECH

Most likely Capacitors cp150, CP120 and CP114 need replacement. You can get the repair kit at under the RCA reapair kits catagory bottom of the page. The kit contains the capacitors and detailed instructions

Panasonic 32-inch LCD TV Blinking 3 Times. Not Turning On. Please Help.
Three Blinks: Three blinks of the power LED indicates an over-current or over-voltage condition in one of the DC supplies of the AP board. The AP board is repairable. Therefore the use of an ohmmeter and peak-hold-voltmeter is required to determine the cause of the shutdown. An over-voltage condition is definitely a defect of the AP board. An over-current condition may be due to a short circuit located in the APh

board, A board, or the LCD panel.

If RCA--it is 3 strikes and you are out---design from them set will attempt to turn on 3 times and the go into shutdown.

It means a short or problem in set--technical inspection needed.

My 52 inch RCA HD/TV Does not turn on

Replace CP150 on the deflection board and that should take care of the problem since it starts once in a wnile if it didnt start ever then you would need the 259296 flyback and the CP150 Capacitor.

Tv wil not turn on

The horizontal output transistor is most likely shorted, it's a 2sc5588 Rca Part # 259899 and there are a couple of subs available for that too.
The slight squealing you hear is the feedback voltage on the hot transformer as the B+ tries to increase and the s/d circuit cuts it off. Not an expensive repair...
Good Luck!
