Question about RCA Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

TV Pops & turns off

I have a ProScan TV, Model PS27151 that was purchased in 1992. It has recently started to make a pop sound & the TV turns off.

Sometimes it stays off & I cannot turn it back on with the remote. Sometimes I can turn it on at the TV but other times only unplugging & plugging it back in will turn it on.

The first time this happened, about 2 weeks ago, unplugging it fixed the problem for over 1 week but then it happened again. Today, after it turned off, it immediately turned on again for a few minutes then off again, on again several times. The final pop off was followed by a second pop & then it was off until I unplugged it & plugged it in again.

I called RCA support but they were not able to help me. They suggested a service center that is out of business. While searching for a service center, I found your website. Do you have any ideas? Does this TV have tubes?

Thanks. Flo

There are no tubes; generally the pop happens because of high voltage. It is being shorted out and the pop is either the flyback transformer or the horizontal transistor oscillator. these two are reponsible for creating the high voltage cycle for your television; when either of them or their circuitry is shorted out you hear that "pop" which is the emergency cut off circuitry coming into play to protect the rest of the television.

Popping sound pictue gone out


This is a classic sound of a switchmode power supply capacitor "popping" this symptom may have many, many causes. It would be best to get a "Quote" for repair. That way you can tell, if you wish to repair or replace.

No sound on channels that have SAP instead of Stereo


You can access the menus using the buttons on the set. Go to audio menu, you'll find a setting that says listen to and have choices of mono stereo or sap, choose stereo.

TV randomely turns off


it may just be a static buildup from the dust.
open the tv and blow it out with a air compressor.
if that doest not work then the circuit may be overloading.
remember it stores a charge for days.

Static on screen and then turns itself off then on


My first aproach will be to see if the tv reacts to tap on the sides if you see a reaccion when you do it most likely you have a loose conection and need to call someone to find it and resoldered it.Dont do it yourself if you dont know how.
