Question about RCA F36665 36" TV

1 Answer

The problem started from a power surge.

Jun 03, 2010 - I would like too know if the fly back transformer, is suppose to have metal sticking out of the side. Mine has two spots.close too one another.Looks like it tried to seep out. Or is this, the way it's made? one is the size of a pencil lead and the other a small eraser.Its a f36665 36" RCA TV 1999 year.I just wanted to make sure I bought the right part to fix it.The Horizontal IC card didn't seem to look burned anywhere.Is this also called the regulator Ic or is this two different peaces? I had, a power surge, of course the fuse blew. I have too pick one up. All I had was the 1 amp, I need a 5 amp when I plugged it in, the TV sizzled and blew the 1 amp just didn't want to spend A lot of money on TV and still not fix the problem. thanks Rob

You may be on the wrong track here.......fly backs are a common failure,but not because of power surge. Most commonly the problem would be on the primary side of the power supply ,such as the rectifiers and sw mode regulator. If you want to prove it,just un solder the horiz out transistor(q401) and the pin of the flybackit connects to...... and if it still blows fuse ,you need to work on the power supply.......not the horiz/hv area

Testimonial: "thanks for the feed back,very helpful.I saw it spark by some resistors.Just not for sure whats all bad and needs replaced.Does the fly back need to disconnected to work on the board? If so I didn't see a good way to do so thanks rob"

The problem arises from the fly back transformer not converting enough current to be used by your TV. This fault might have cause some other components to malfunction. I would advice you replace the fly back transformer immediately, as a first approach. Thanks

Look at this one:

This is for the 1800 however...

Often they will just double up with two amps, one inverted, and use in bridged mode.at the higher power in what we call an "H" arrangement.

Since the drains are tied together, the heatsinks MIGHT be hot output level.

Flyback transformer


A flyback transformer is one of the more expensive components in a projection TV. If there is no clear reason, such as a known power surge, you could well replace the flyback transformer again soon because the root problem was elsewhere.
An OEM transformer is not necessary but you might have trouble convincing an authorized factory service technician to use anything but the original manufacturer's parts.
As with many of today's electronic devices, if it is more than a year or two old, you will find the new products cheaper and with more features. The next generation of projection TVs will use lasers and scanning will be done with optically controlled micro-mirrors - no flyback transformer required.

TV wont turn on...red power button flashing


HI. this is a malfunctioning fly back transformer. it is connected directly to the picture tub, and is part of the main power sector as well. The fly back transformer can become covered with lint overtime. this will induce a very violent arcing effect that will usually blow the entire power sector.

Replacing the fly back and affected components will fix this issue.

RCA HD27F754T 1 Solid Red Light, then, 10 Blinking Red Lights


HI. this may be a fly back situation. this is a transformer that is located on the power board section of your set. This device stores and, distributes the necessary AC current needed for proper CRT performance. There is also a horizontal deflection chip that will shut off the transformer if it becomes unstable as well.

I recommend checking the Horizontal deflection chip for damage. if this chip is in good condition, replace the HV Fly back transformer.

There is a good chance that the failure is in the main power supply. 
A second chance is that the set is protecting itself from a failure after the supply; this is more likely to occur in the horizontal section where the highest power consumption occurs. 
If the failure is in the supply, it could be a fairly reasonable cost repair. If in the horizontal section, depending on whether the failure is limited to a $10 horizontal output transistor or a bad flyback transformer. The transformer should still be available but with markup, shipping and installation, the cost could exceed the $100 US mark.
Generally, I have been recommending folks repair their old standard definition sets, buy a converter box for digital TV, and not dispose of them since the flat panel sets are dying like flies, often just after the warranty expires.   This would at least provide some kind of set when the expensive LCD or plasma sets go belly up.

No picture but the red power button blinks each time it blinks there is a thumping noise from speakers and a clicking sound


try checking the fuse area, together with the capacitor & resistor may one of them is faulty. and also check for any bad soldered.

let me know

Screen doesnt turn on then shuts power off


The fault you are describing is caused by a faulty fly back transformer. The fly back transformer provides the high voltage required to light up the picture tube/s on the set. Other than the fly back transformer there are a few components that supply the fly back with power that may have failed. Generally not overly expensive to fix
