Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

RCA F35730ST 36" Home Theatre TV

The TV was on working normally when it made a "pop" like when the power goes out and went dead. There is power to the set but it is dead. We unplugged it for 30 min. but does not respond. It was like a fuse blew. Is there a chance it is worth repairing?

These sets have a problem with a deguase curcuit this will blow the fuse for no apparent reason. If this is the case a thermail #207768 will need to be replaced

Red light blinking

When it popped something went, you likely will not see it as this usually is a part that is covered with a metal heatsink, that aside either open it and look for signs on the power board including puffy caps or if not able to safely do that get an estimate here.

not really any way around this, someone has to at least look and then use test equipment to see if voltages etc exist---the nature of these sets (all brands) is they only sell the circuit boards.

Typical bad filter caps

Tv popped and went dead

Sounds like the power supply failed. If out of warranty and you want to open it up, look for damaged parts on the power supply board. Unplug the set. Use your nose to sniff out the burnt parts.

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.

My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?
