Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

RCA F36650 Television . . .

When I turn it on I do not get a picture, but I do get a high pitch whistling sound.

Is this a problem that can be repaired? Or is the set shot?

    I have the exact same problem. The TV is less than 4 years old.

    Thanks

It can be repaired. It sounds like a bad high voltage transformer or something in that circuit. I would take it to a TV shop and ask for an estimate. It might be costly to repair.

Same problem, high pitched noise over regular sound and no pictur


No guarantees with this diagnosis. But it sounds like an HT ( high tension) leak This is often caused by the lead becoming partly unplugged ( being bumped or moved) and because of dust buildup it arcs making a high pitched hissing whistle.Ther lamp may also have been affected by the HT leak. The safest option for you is to call a service technician to it, as opening it up could cosntitute a a danger to the unskilled.

High pitch noise and the power light flashes.


most likely it is the flyback transformer. I have had meny RCA tv's with a bad Flyback and H.O.T transistor bad. Cost depends on the service center. Parts average around $60.00 dealer, so depending on mark up and shop labor it could vary greatly. If you have never changed these parts it is best to have a service man do it ... Take it to the shop and save the trip call charge $49.00 and up to $125.00..
