Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

Green blinking power button

This morning we were watching t.v. turned it off. Came back 20 minutes later to try and turn it on and the power button blinks two or three times and then goes off. When you first hit it it sounds like it's trying to kick on, but it's just a short little click. Nothing happens, i have unplugged right now. Please help.

Sounds like an internal fuse or a power supply problem. It is worth it (I don't normally say this) to get this set fixed.

When you turn on power you hear a click and the green light turns on. Three seconds later you hear another click and the green light turns off.


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and"menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release bothtogether.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Let me know what you find and I will assist you.

how extended is that warranty, and what does it cover? Sounds to me like a classic video controller board about to fail.

My tv will not turn on i woke up this morning wanting to watch tv and it keeps making this funny noise everytime i try and turn it on I've had this tv for about 6 or 7 years what can i do? And usually when...


May be power supply failure and then maybe cold solder joints...a lot of sanyo's came in the shop that had bad solder joints...we would look for solder joints with a cracked looking ring around them , resolder them, and the set would usually work...you can try to remove the back to gain access to the underside of the board to see if this may be the case...otherwise, it may be a circuit malfunction

Samsung DLP turns on and off - cycle repeats


make sure put the lamp door back before trying to turn it on because they have switches on them that allow the tv to turn on. If that is ok you probably have a bad ballast.
Call a local tv repair shop to further diagnose the problem.

SONY KV32-FQ70U BLINK ERROR


Try unplugging the TV for about 10 minutes and then tunung it on again. Try a factory

To reset the TV to factory settings
1
Turn the TV on.
2 Hold down on the remote control.
3 Press and release the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off,
then back on.
4 Release .

I'm assuming step 2 means hold down the power button.

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,

TV turns on at odd hours by itself


Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
