Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

No Power TV will not power up at all. It is dead. Is this the fuse that was mentioned in one of the replies or is this deeper like a power supply unit? Any idea on the cost to repair this. The TV is 5 years old and we got if for around $500. Trying to figure out if we should call repairman or just search for a new TV?

    I found this TV, Today and decided to try to fix it. I found the exact same problem with the 2 caps you described. they were popped up on the top.
    I also tested and they seemed fine but only had a DVM with mo cap tested on it. I pulled them out and am ordering 2 new ones like you suggested
    4700mf 25V, I do not know which diode you are referring to and was wondering if you can give me the location on the power board.of the diode that may also be bad. Thanks for the tips I might be able to finally have a bigger TV.

    Mine went dead. I found the standby regulator and a resistor blown. Would something else cause this or should it be ok by just replacing the parts?

    I also have no power however I seem to have some other problem I think. The Caps look fine, however two resistors blew (R14131 & R14110) does anyone have the values of these and a possible reason for them blowing. Could this also be a case of bad caps (wasn't able to test them, but they weren't visibly stressed)

I am having the same problem. I have done some research and found a notorious cap and diode problem with this set. The two 4700uf caps (C14113 and C14115) on the DM1 power board (the board to the left of the sat. box when you look at the set from the back) are under rated and will eventually fail. When these caps fail they tend to take out diode CR14105. This may be your problem. If it is, you can replace the caps with 4700uf 25V 105c and the same as original diode. In my case the diode appears to be ok. This info comes from some forums and a service buletin from Thomson Co.

    The diode is not a trditional axial diode. It looks more like a transistor and is clipped onto a heatsink. The diode is in the same general area as the two caps. check the numbers on the board and you will find it. Good luck.

Toshiba 32c100u dead; power supply board replaced but still nothing


Have you checked whether mains power reaches the power board? Check it first. If yes, the power board you purchased newly should be checked.

Tv does not turn on , there was a power outage and since then it wont turn on. there is power to the outlet


If the TV is completely DEAD. Check the main fuse in the power supply. Replace the fuse with exact amperage. Make sure you unplug the TV before taking the cover off. If the power supply keeps blowing the fuse, replace the power supply. Be very careful high voltage can kill!

Best of luck

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
 
No power means no lights at all, dead set
Call a repairman and expect to spend $275 for a fuse or $550-$600 for a new power supply or SSB board
Check the power supply board for 5 volts , if 5 volts standby is present replace the SSB board.

TV will not turn on


Assuming you are absolutely sure the TV is getting power,
If you have an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the two prongs on its plug. If no conductivity (over 1 meg Ohm) the fuse inside is popped. Take the cover off, look in the area near the power cord, it is the usual 5AG type (glass cylinder) fuse. If you replace it and it pops again then measure all the diodes in the rectifier circuit (near the fuse).
Many times power transients will just blow these input power devices. However, many times it will go much deeper and get the TV's processor brain. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years old, I wouldn't go any deeper than the input power circuit.

Sounds like the power surge may have blown the fuse in the TV. You can replace the fuse and see if that works. If not, more damage to the power supply unit may have occurred.
