Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

RCA P52920BL My RCA 52" rear projection tv tries to turn on a couple of times, but doesn't. This started as an intermittent problem. Model # P52920BL, chassis 829351257...At first the set would turn on, but after a minute would shut down then restart. Did this a couple of times then stayed on....Then one day it tried to turn but wouldn't. Help Me...Henry I have an RCA F36650, Entertainment Series, Guide Plus Gold Gemstar tv that I bought new in about 2001. It just started to do a similar thing. It just went black as I was attempting to change from watching a Tivo show to a channel by remote, and it won't turn back on. It attempts to turn on 3 times - whether by remote or by the "on" button. You can hear a quick pop/sizzle noise and the green light goes on for a second, then off, then it tries again 2 more times. I've never had any other problem with this set. Is it dead ... or worth having a repair person out to look at it? Thanks.

my first instinct when i hear this at the shop is a shorted horizontal output transistor. and with that usally a flyback also. If you know any electronics you can replace. Replacing these components are not for a novice. i would first check the transistor to be sure

HI, Joe ! You probably have a short somewhere. Where? Possibly in the High Voltage circuit.Maybe the horizontal out put circuit. This is a common signal,especially RCA's, that there is a heavy load on one of the power supplies--- like a shorted transistor or ? Stargazer
