RCA TV will not turn on

I have an RCA 32" TV model F32650 that will not turn on, the light at the switch on the TV will come on then go off. You website has said that it may be the transformer with part number 257805. Is this a replacement that can be done at home by myself? Do you have a picture of this part so I could try to locate it in the TV as well as a wiring diagram for this model?

Re: RCA TV will not turn on

Opening up your tv is quite dangerous (even when not connected it can shock you) and it voids the warranty

there's also a huge change of destroying it even more, so unless you are a pro don't open up a TV

I already figured out that my flyback transformer was bad, this is an ongoing problem with a lot of RCA CRT televisions because RCA used very cheap parts in order to save them more money, rather than making there customers happy with good quality parts, and my TV was made in MEXICO, and that my friends is why we the American people are getting screwed. (Shame on you RCA)

RCA F32650 TV changes channels by itself

Problem is common to RCA models. The issue is bad solder joints in the tuner area. Resolder the entire tuner section of the board and the problem will be resolved. No parts are necessary.

I think that both of you have faults on the power supply of the tv. If you are able to check this yourself start with the diodes and resistors if not then find a competant technician. Hope this helps.
