My tv will not come on and the power button is flashing red.

    My tv all of a sudden won't turn on. I checked all the wires to make sure everything was plugged in. I tried switching it from the socket it was plugged into (even though the dvd/vcr worked fine from that socket) to another one and still nothing. It does not respond to the remote and when I pushed the power button manually, the red power light flashed like 10 times and then just stayed red but no picture and no sound. Is there anyway to fix this myself?

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

My RCA television quit all of a sudden and now the power button is flashing green and won't turn on.


Your tv has a power supply fault, take it to repair shop and have it repaired
ask the technician to check the following components
semi conductors around the supply section, also ask him to check the (ht) high tension voltage which triggers a line transformer which in turn gives small outputs voltages to power the tv.
okay

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on


the tv has one part of the power supply working this is needed to have the microcontroller ready to work. But the tv needs more than that for work im talking 'bout the high voltage power supply who is now damaged. the parts required depends on the diagnosis in the bench but at least two are needed. the cost of this repair of course depends in how many parts are going to be replaced, but i concider this repair kind of average in this technology.

Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Hello All,

This is a flyback problem. Thomson will not honor the installation neither will RCA. This has been going on for years. RCA and Thomson technically parted company a few years ago, but because RCA still uses Thomson parts they often have problems getting these parts when they fail, so RCA leaves it up to the TV owner to get the set repaired at a third party shop. In addition to this the Thomson parts only have a 1year warranty from the date of manufacture of the set, so it is possible for you to buy a RCA TV with Thomson parts that are out of warranty before you take it out of the store. Sad but true, the only recourse is to try to get RCA to service the set, provided that it malfunctions within the first year of purchase. I would suggest that you all take these TVs to a qualified TV repair shop to get them repaired, however, make sure the shop uses the exact OEM parts (This is important) because there are parts that come close to the original, but you or the TV shop would have to spend hours adjusting focus and screen voltages to allow the new part to work.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

RCA 32V524T- Blown fuse?


If you blew the fuse, the TV would do absolutely nothing - no lights, no sounds, nothing. It could be that the loud zapping noise you heard was the high voltage transformer arcing or shorting out. This could have caused the horizontal output transistor to short, and the set will not start as a result. You should have the set serviced by a qualified tech.

You have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor. Your set would have to be taken to a shop to have these parts replaced. Stargazer
