Question about RCA 32F531T 32" TV

1 Answer

TV will not come on

Our RCA 32" tru flat will not work! You can turn the power on and the green light appears - then it immediately shuts itself off. You never get a picture or sound - just turns on and then off again. What is the problem? Can this tv be saved/fixed?

    We just purchased it from a friend...I think it's only like 4-5 years old. We thought we were getting a good deal for $75 and it worked for a week and then stopped!



    I turned it on, heard the sound, walked away to let the dog in - came back through the door and it had turned itself off. Then, every time I pressed the power button - the button turned green (as if it were powering on) and then it would immediately power off - never showing a picture or sound again. I did all of this via the buttons directly on the tv (we haven't gotten the remote yet for it)



    Should I feel static in front when I try to power it on?



    Thanks so much for your help, suggestions, opinions!

How old is this TV?
Sounds like it has high voltage failure.
(If you hold your hand on the screen when you try and turn it on, do you feel the static? )
Unless the set is over 10 years old, I would overhaul the high voltage circuit. Should cost under $200 at a shop.

    Yes, When the high-voltage is working, you feel a kind of fuzzy sensation. Try it on any working standard TV.

I have a RCA 32" Flat Screen TV that shut off and


Hi,


The sound was came from the clicking of the relay. This kind of symptoms is an indication of out-of-regulation condition on the power supply section. This is caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor. It will dropped the supply voltage and will trigger that kind of symptoms.


Faulty electrolytic capacitor mostly has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can be easily identified. See sample picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor below.

capacitor with bulged/dome at the top.


Check these parts on the power supply section. Once found, replaced it with same capacitance and working voltage which is printed on its body itself. Click this LINK for more info regarding electrolytic capacitor.


If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified TV Technician to isolate the faulty parts.


Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do you unlock your TV from Protective Mode? There is a certain code that you need in order to unlock the Television. The technicians are saying that it went into Protective Mode, when it umplugged all by itself. I need the code so I can watch my TV again.
