    I ordered the Flyback Transformer (RCAFlyback Transformer 259296) based on prior discussions you had with other clients. I see there is a red wire and black wire going to this unit and want instructions on proper removal and reconnection of these wires to the new transformer. If you could, please provide direction for properinstallation of the transformer. Thanks.

  • TonyPA Jul 13, 2008

    The pins and soldering I understand. My concern is how the (2) wires are connected in the top of the unit. They do not pull out easily and I do not want to force anything. Any suggestions?

    I also noticed your prior response questioning if it is the Flyback transformer. I obtained this info. from reader other responses on your site. If there is some other troubleshooting I should try that may be easier to rule out than replacing the transformer, please let me know. Thanks.

    Hmm.. How did you know it was the Flyback transformer? Did you test it? Here are instructions for testing it.
    I will see if I can find wiring diagrams or replacing instructions for your model

    Moreover flyback transformer is a high-voltage unit that connects directly onto the back of
    your TV tube and controls the electron beam that draw the picture, its replacement and installation requires precision soldering and working on parts that can give a strong electric discharge, even after TV had been disconnected from power.This kind of job should be done only by an expert repairman.

    To replace the flyback yo should remove solder from all pins and then press the clips holding the transformer.
    When replacing it be careful with the tube, the smallest crack in the tube is sufficient to cause a strong implosion.
    Leave TV disconnected from power for over one hour before working on it.

    My last suggestion is to buy service manual, that will contain all diagrams to replace the flyback transformer. I think its consultation will be helpful, if not mandatory in your case.

When TV is turned on, green power light comes on and picture starts to come on, after a couple of seconds the picture goes out along with the green power light and the red standby light comes on and blinks...

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Capacitor being replaced! Fairly easy DIY fix.

I have no picture, no sound, and no backlight on my 32" RCA LCD TV. The green light on the front of the TV comes on and stays steady, but the screen remains off. I have tried changing the fuse more...

I just experienced the same exact problem, and like most, I went googling for advice. It turns out that my local audio/video store that handles RCA has almost a 100% success rate on knowing what causes this.

This is a power supply problem. When you have all three occurrences (no screen, no sound and no backlight) it makes sense. We usually are too ill-informed (and usually angry at the time) to calm down and think things out on the simplest of levels.

Invariably, there is a known anomaly for inferior capacitors in a lot of American-sold products. This usually gets cast off as "It will cost more than the TV is worth". Not true, though many of us go buy a new TV, anyway.

I'm glad I took the time to find out my TV was repairable for under 50 dollars by having the bulging capacitor in the power supply replaced.

Sometimes advice is only as good as you pay for it, I suppose, but sometime you have to slow down and make a decision that has a real voice or a real face on the other instead of clicking the spammy writers in here.

Sanyo model DP42848 pic comes on for a sec then goes off made noise when first turned on a couple days before it went out

If there is problem with an inverter or a back light, the lights will come on for about 2 seconds and then shut off.
The Sanyo DP42484 television has a problem with poor quality back lights. I had one that had three bad back lights. I replaced them and it fixed the problem. The TV now comes on and stays on.
Replacing the back lights is a very tricky problem. You have to completely disassemble the entire TV to expose the back lights. The hardest part is removing the LCD glass without damaging the very delicate ribbon cables that connect it to the rest of the TV or cracking the glass.
You then have to reassemble the television, except without the LCD glass. You can then power up the TV and see which back light are not illuminating.
The back lights are 950 mm long and 3.3 mm wide. There are 12 of them. The ends are coated in a silver paint for conductivity. They are held by metal U-shaped sockets at either end. In the middle of the length of the fluorescent tube is a C-shaped plastic support to hold up the center of the long tubes. This plastic is very brittle and breaks easily. Try to slide the tube to the side thru the plastic support. If you try to spread the support wider and pull the tube foreward, the C-shaped plastic support will break.
I searched for an exact replacement, but I was not successful. The closed I could get was 950 mm long and 3.0 mm wide with wire ends. I purchased these from for $25 each. Part number CC30950. I bent the wire ends back and soldered them to the metal sockets. When the 3 bad lights were replaced the Television came on and stayed on.

My lcd tv makes a humming noise

Try removing all cables going to the TV except the power cord. Power on the TV and press mute. If you have any unwanted noise, then you have a defective TV and since it is new, you should get an exchange. If there is no noise with the A/V cables removed, then you might have hooked the source (cable box/DVD Player) into the wrong inputs of the TV.
