Lost all power in 1991 RCA TV model F35100ST

We have an old - 1991 RCA tv, model F35100ST
while watching the tv the other day it just went out.
Picture lost, sound lost and the little green power light - gone.
My husband thought if he opened it up he would find a fuse to replace maybe, but did not.
Can you help with any suggestions in what we can look for?

Best thing to start here is open up the TV and look for any blown components on the power board (which is the one that has the power cable attached to); check the transformer for continuity first, that is the first thing to blow. Then go on with capacitors, resisters, and any burnt wires.

All of these parts are easy to find and replace, they can be found in local electronics shops.

Please post back how it went and any further information or questions you may have, so we can help you better.

Good luck!

The power went out and my RCA tv needs to have the time set to continue watching. But the remote does not work, and I can't access the menu from the tv

If the remote control doesn't work, just buy one RCA RCR model universal remote control. Without remote control, you can't set the time to this set.

I am watching my 14 days old JVC 21"TV but

Your TVs power supply regulator section has got some trouble with it, that is why power indicator doesn't light up. You have purchased it only fourteen days back, surely there will be warranty for it. Do not open the TV. The company will give no concession if the set is opened. Send it to the authorised service center and get it repaired. Some power supply faults may fatal, and may have to spend more. Since your TV is a new model, spare part availability in the open market may be difficult. Send it to them and let them do the work. OK.

Picture went off on rca flat screen while watching still have sou

That probably happened because something hit the TV and broke the line for pictures to get through, or because a wire in you TV is bad and doesn't wanna work. This happened to my TV every few days. What I did is give it a few whacks every now and then on top of it and the vision came back, but don't try that if you think your TV is fragile. Yes I know its sounds stereotypical but it actually sometimes works.

Well, good luck!

Hello there. I'm sorry to say that it sounds as if the element that actually energizes your screen is bad. It is most likely overheating. or quite poosible the power converter lost a resistor or 2.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on

Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Tv has sound but no picture

Sounds like you have lost video somewhere in the video circuits. Possibly the picture tube could have gone bad or lost filiament voltage. You can check to see if you have high voltage by holding your bare arm close to the screen. The hairs will stand up if you have high voltage. Absence of high voltage will also cause a black screen,but the sound might not work either since on some sets the power for the sound is supplied from the same circuit as the high voltage. Stargazer
