Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

Have RCA 31" tube TV. Won't turn on anymore, and just makes a high pitched squealing sound. The sound seems to come from a transformer, which is supposed to be a T4101 X mode transformer, which is soldered to the main board with a bunch of pins. Is this transformer shot, or is it a symptom of something else? Worth fixing? Thanks, Bryan

    Wrong info provided by expert. Check H-Out transistor in your tv that sounds shorted out, replace it.

Probably not worht fixing , I would hook it up to check the transformer before I amde a mistake giving you a wroung answer, But if the transformer is making noises like you said that would be the first I would look at as well. But to tell you its bad would be shooting myself in the foot. I would tell you this the repair of a transformer $120 bucks. Now is it worth the fixya probably not. 9 times out of ten here something could have killed the HVAC transformer.

Thanks I hope this gives you some advice please do rate it with the thumbs above.

No pix/sound, just high pitched whistle


Ur tv the high voltage it dead,the FBT,the flyback transformer.The big black block of plastic with a red wire with a black cap that hook up to the CRT(tv tube) is dead.The FBT,flyback transformer needed it to be replaced to solved this problems.Call the shops,take estimates for the best deal to do the repair.This is one of the main part of the tv to put HV in CRT(tube tv).It pretty hard to find this FBT these day,because of the discontinue of making of Amalog tvs.

High pitch sound coming from circuit board, cannot


First, you will want to isolate the problem. Is it feedback from an AC outlet you have it plugged into? Is it a recent noise that just started with no changes to Tv or its environment, then you may want to consider that a circuit is going and decide if it is worth repairing, You should find that type of fix at a shop for under $100

My RCA TV went blank and has a high pitch noise.


it's probably not the tube. Sounds like something is shorting the B+ from the power supply. Could be the Horizontal Output transistor or the Flyback transformer. Do you know how to find these components? I could be a rectifier diode on the secondary of the power supply as well. If you know what you're doing check those with a meter. If you don't know what you're doing, ask someone who does.

Good Luck.

High pitched sound


The high-pitched squeal is from the power supply, usually because of failure of the horizontal output transistor, flyback transformer, or both. Without a specific model I can't give more definite information about part numbers or likely costs. But repairs of this type usually have parts costs in the 10 to 75 dollar range (depending on just which parts are bad, and where replacements come from) plus whatever labor costs the repairer charges.

RCA Model f27650 High pitch squeal


the high pitch squeal indicates shorted component/s. the transformer goes hot co'z its being overloaded by the shorted component, it too could be the one creating the squeal!!

if you have experience with electronic troubleshooting, try to test some of the components particularly on the secondary part of the transformer.
Be careful and make sure the TV set is unplugged.
test for shorted diodes and transistors, if you're in doubt of your readings try to desoldering one leg of the diode then proceed with the testing/measuring. replace any of the bad components you find exactly with same part number or replacements with the same rating.

spend more time on it resoldering some other cold soldered components.

High pitch


I have never heard a tube make noise when there is a good picture. Anyway, the noise has to be a transformer ringing or oscilating. They make a high pitched squeal when they have a loose winding or their cover is loose. You probably won't be able to feel or see anything loose on these transformers The power supply switching transformer is the first to look at. Take a hot glue gun and just cover the thing...especially at the base of it. The next (and only other) one is the horizontal drive transformer.It is located close to the high voltage transformer( biggest thing on board and usually in back or corner of the PCB.This one wont squeal) The horizontal drive transformer is about the size of a large marble and is encased in a black plastic cover. Cover it with hot glue also.
If you take the back off you will probably be able to localize where the squeal is coming from. You will probably need a signal to hear the noise also. After you find where it is coming from UNPLUG the set before doing any hot gluing!!!!
If you 're not up to this procedure take it to a technician. Your tube is not going bad and the set is definitly worth repair. Simple fix!! Good Luck!!

Sanyo tv making high pitch noise from loose cable connector


The noise is coming from the fly-back transformer. By moving the cable connector you move the main board. Unplug the TV and remove the back. The transformer has a red wire going to a rubber cup at the top of the picture tube. Looking at the transformer you will see a dough nut shape with a metal piece going through it .. Drive some tooth picks between the dough nut and the metal core. That should reduce or stop the ringing.

Don't mistake hissing sound with a possible high pitched squeal. You probably have a shorted horizontal output transistor. Take it to a service center to be looked at by a professional.
