Lost all power in 1991 RCA TV model F35100ST

Hello,
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?

    I will have my husband check this out when he comes home.

    I pushed accept on the screen here, I hope that does not close this situation out.

    I have not resolved yet.

    Anyways: Do I need resistor testors or anything like that to check some of these things?

    Or, if it is blown will it be obvious upon sight?

    Thank you

    Deana

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!

    A multimeter will do the trick here.
    Use that to check for continuity on the components.

    Many parts look either burnt (brownish, black color), resistors and capacitors are easily blown, capacitors have an X or + on the top, and instead of looking flat, they are swollen.

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


Hello
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


Hello
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.

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,
