Question about RCA F32650 32" TV
Our RCA F32650 32in tv does not turn on. When plugged into an outlet makes a high pitch chirping noise. Happened over night when I believe we had a electrical surge to the tv but not sure. Initially the tv would just not turn on. After a few tries their was a constant chirping noise with it plugged into an outlet.
I do not have the skill set to fix this tv but my wife's grandpa has tinkered with small appliances including tvs. Could this be an easy fix for him? If so what parts are needed, at what cost, and where can I find parts for this tv? If this is a more complex fix, what would it cost to have it fixed by a professional? Also, is there a reset button for this tv?
Thanks. in advance for your help.
Your problem is a shorted horizontal output transistor C5148 located behind the highvoltage transformer on a heat sink with a clip over it and you can't see the number unless you remove the clip Has to be unsolded and solder in new. Also the highvoltage transformer must be replaced This is the big part with the large red wire coming out and going to the top of the picture tube. Must be unsoldered and replaced with original RCA .....do not get a replacement It has several connections plus three wires to connect to it and I recommend using desoldering brad can get at Radio Shack 5 foot roll. Well as you can see it gets pretty involved. You can't get the parts from most distributors unless you have a business. If he tackles it and has a distributor the parts would run about $50 to $60 and a repairman average should be less than $200 and more than $150 hope this helps. Contact me for any questions you may have. I am more than willing to help.
