Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

No power now all it does is click

My T.V turned off by itself and would not turn back on for awhile. Now
when I plug it in all it does is make a high pitched clicking sound. In other
submissions it has been said that it could be the flyback trransformer. If it was this could I do this myself and if so where can I get one?

Thank you

We have an older Philips tv model 32PS60B121- for a while every time we turned it on it kept turning itself off for awhile, then would finally click on - now we turn it on, the screen is black and there...

yes this is a power supply problem. it has shut down due to a fault, for safety reasons, to prevent a fire or explosion. You need to get a "Quote" for repair. Please note, a unit such as this will more than likely be an un-economic repair.

Panasonic CT32SF wont turn on

Dont know spec of this model but if it has a CRT (glass tube) display rather than a LCD one, clicking at switch on is idicative of a power supply overload which, 99 times out of a hundred on a CRT telly is down to a fault in the power supply itself or the line output stage (the bit that generates the very high voltages in CRT tellys and also makes the picture scan left to right).
In short, not a DIY fix - take it to a repair shop.

I power on tv and it shuts down after few seconds

There is a high voltage leak here, the reason it closes down is the protection mechanism isw trying to prevent more damage. better to turn it off and have it repaired before it catches fire or blows all the boards and becomes totally useless or beyond repair.

Sorry this isnt what you wanted hear but there is a safeyty factor involved here.

Proscan 27" tv

it is due to power supply failure. 1 check for loose contact in power supply. 2 it might be due to plug or socket loose. 3 switching circuit failure in power supply. good luck.

TV Turns off on its own

Just keep smack'in it around, it works for me. It is the 'protection overload circuit' taking over and shutting the TV set off. This is because it detected a short or near-short circuit somewhere. Most common is high voltage, deflection amplifiers and main power supply. It's pretty much a common fix for an experienced tv repairman. It might set me back in the ballpark of $200 - $300.

Power refuses to come on

Im not sure really as I've never had that happen but try to unplug set for awhile and plug back in and see if that corrcts your fault. its a possibility that if it dosent work then the set was breaking down at the same time you were turning an option off in the menu but like I said I dont think theres any option that will turn off the set and not let it start back up again UNLESS wait were you watching mission impossible??? nnnaaaaa Just kidding!! LOL Good Luck and please let us know if you find anything.
