2001 RCA Guide post TV

I have a 2001 RCA Guide Post TV 32". I was watching a show when the screen went black and it started to hum. I unpluged it and then my husband came home, plugged it back in and it made the humming noise and then a loud pop. Now it makes no sound at all. I would hate to send it to the land fill as its a nice TV or was. Is there a way to fix it myself. Most places I called said it would be cheaper to trash it and buy a new one. Alot of repair places said with the television change going to digital, I might as well buy a new one. Is there a way to fix this?

TV suddenly shut off - and now won't turn back on. Screen went totally black. When you try to turn it back on, screen stays dark, and tv has a humming sound that wouldn't shut off until unplugged. Not...


Did this unit fail after a power outage or passing storm? If so could be lost of component in the low voltage power supply circuit or degausing relay circuit. I would strongly suggest you seek help from a qualified repair center. Don not attempt to repair yourself...to dangerous.

No picture, no sound, power light blinks several times then stops.


G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again?

RCA F32665 Shows only gray screen, sound works.


You have a problem in the video circuit. Any video that comes into the set is not getting to the picture tube. The menus come from the system control microprocessor. This shows that the input at the picture tube itself is working. Also you system control is working. The signal would have to be traced through the set to find out where the loss is originating.

Picture went out and all the tv does is make a buzzing sound


The horizontal output transistor drives a transformer that gives you the high voltage to light up the picture tube,either the transistor or the transformer have gone bad,sometimes both have to be replaced and sometimes the transistor fails for no reason by itself.Be safe and call for help if you are not familiar with tv service.
