Sparking rabbit ears

If the fuse blows the instant the power is switched on, there is most likely a heavy short in the primary side of the power supply. This could be the rectifier diodes or the switching transistor (or IC). If you do not have experience identifying and replacing shorted semiconductors, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

It could be a defective speaker or the audio output IC could be bad also. If your not a tech its a good Idea to seek a pro in the repair of a tv set as there are no user serviceable parts inside these set. Good Luck

Set will not turn on

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. good luck!

Where is the inverter and LED driver on a RCA Roku television?

Hi Kristy, the backlight inverter is part of the power board however I doubt this is the issue, most likely you have at least one LED button that's open, they wire these like Christmas lights, remove one bulb the string goes dark, I own a TV service center and we get hundreds of sets with no backlights a year, about 95% of the time it's the actual backlights that have failed as the inverter section seldom gives issues, you will need to remove the panel and defusing panels to get at the lamps, be VERY careful handling the panel, it's quite fragile and static electricity can damage it, we have the proper gear to handle it in our shop, what Ive recommended for home repair is put shoes on then put a few an inch of water in the bath tub and get your shoes wet before removeing and replacing the panel, this will eliminate static damage. Good luck!!

My Roku flat screen tv the original remote broke so I bought a RCA 3 universal remote and I can't get it to connect

Question edited for clarity. It is a 'Roku', not a 'ruko'. Roku is a streaming service and not a television manufacturer. The put their badge on a television made by an established maker that also has their streaming service built in, or with a set top/side dongle. https://www.roku.com/en-ca/products/roku-tv https://www.fixya.com/support/r29872378-universal_remotes_no_facsimile_remote You buy the remote SPECIFICALLY for the television you own. That is done by the model number. https://www.google.com/search?q=roku+television+replacement+remote ..

What is the code for a naxa DVD player ND-861

To program your RCA universal remote to control your Naxa DVD player ND-861, you will need to use the correct code for your device. Here are the steps to follow:

Power on your Naxa DVD player.

Press and hold the "Code Search" button on your RCA universal remote until the indicator light turns on.

Release the "Code Search" button.

Press and release the "DVD" button on your RCA remote.

Enter the code for your Naxa DVD player. You can find a list of RCA remote codes for Naxa DVD players in the RCA remote manual that came with your remote or by searching online. For example, the code for Naxa DVD players may be 3394.

Press the "Enter" button on your RCA remote. The indicator light on your remote will turn off if the code was entered correctly.

Test the remote to see if it's working. Try playing a DVD and using the remote to navigate the menu.

If the first code you tried didn't work, repeat the steps with a different code until you find one that works. If none of the codes work, it's possible that your RCA universal remote is not compatible with your Naxa DVD player.

Having trouble with RCA tv vertical and horizontal lines can you help?

Generally horizontal lines are caused by a bad panel, there are COF IC's that give issues a lot of time and they aren't replacable.

My Kef psw2000 power on but but no sound,when i plug in RCA cable standby turn on,I think it's IC,pls what are the IC number for Kef psw2000

First off, even with the IC numbers are you going to be able to replace the faulty parts, in most cases it's not something that can be done without a soldering station, plus hot air station and advanced soldering skills, it's not like soldering a couple wires together. If you're able to replace them take the numbers off the top of the chips and cross reference them.

Rca wont turn on what do i do I tried every thing but it won't turn on

If your RCA TV won't turn on, there are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the power source: Make sure that the TV is properly plugged in and the outlet is functioning properly. You can also try plugging in a different device to the same outlet to see if it works.
  2. Check the power cord: Check the power cord for any damage or fraying. If you see any damage, try replacing the power cord.
  3. Try a different remote: If you are using a remote to turn on the TV, try using a different remote or try turning it on manually using the power button on the TV.
  4. Check for any error messages: If the TV is showing an error message or blinking lights, refer to the user manual or contact the manufacturer for troubleshooting steps.
  5. Reset the TV: Unplug the TV from the power source for at least 30 seconds, then plug it back in and try turning it on again.
If none of these steps work, it may be a more serious issue that requires professional repair.

RCA LCD TV Model #39LB45RQ; Power Board #RE46DZ1751. No standby light; ~2.4v measured at the 5v standby pin. Is there any specific component on the board to further test/replace?

There are a few components that could be responsible for the lack of standby power on the RCA power board:
  1. Fuse: Check to see if the fuse on the power board is intact. If it's blown, then that could be the reason for the lack of standby power.
  2. Capacitors: Check the capacitors on the power board for signs of bulging or leaking. If any of the capacitors are faulty, then they may need to be replaced.
  3. Diodes: Check the diodes on the power board to ensure that they are not shorted or open. If any of the diodes are faulty, then they may need to be replaced.
  4. Voltage regulator: Check the voltage regulator on the power board to ensure that it is providing the correct output voltage. If the voltage regulator is faulty, then it may need to be replaced.
If all of these components check out, then it's possible that the power board itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I have a RCA dvd home theatre system rtd317 & the tray opens & closes with or without a disk & won't read the disk.

If your RCA DVD home theatre system RTD317 tray is opening and closing without reading the disk, and you've tried unplugging it, cleaning the laser lens, and the motor doesn't seem to be working, it's possible that there may be an issue with the motor or with the disk mechanism itself. Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Check the disk: Make sure that the disk you are trying to play is clean and free of scratches. Sometimes a dirty or scratched disk can prevent the player from reading it.
  2. Reset the system: Try resetting the system to its default settings. To do this, unplug the unit from the power source for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on.
  3. Check the motor: When the tray closes, listen closely to see if you can hear the motor spinning. If you can't hear the motor, there may be an issue with the motor or with the power supply to the motor. In this case, it may be necessary to have the motor replaced.
  4. Check the disk mechanism: If the motor is working but the disk still won't spin, there may be an issue with the disk mechanism itself. In this case, it may be necessary to have the disk mechanism repaired or replaced.
  5. Contact customer support: If none of these steps work, it may be best to contact the manufacturer's customer support for further assistance or to have the unit repaired by a professional.
Remember to always follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines when working with electronic devices.

RCA LED 50B45RQ tv turns on, lights up screen, but screen is solid blue.

It sounds like you may have an issue with the backlight of your TV. If a backlight is not getting adequate power, it can cause the screen to appear blue or have "flashing white splotches". The best way to resolve this issue is to have a qualified technician inspect the TV to determine if there are any issues with the backlight power supply. If there is an issue with the power supply, they will be able to replace it and resolve the issue.

Cannot program a comcast digital adapter remote to a RCA led tv/dvd combo, RLDEDV3255-A-E

If you have already tried all the recommended codes and the "no code option" on your Comcast digital adapter remote, but are still unable to program it to control the power and volume of your RCA LED TV/DVD combo, you may need to consider using a universal remote or contacting Comcast or RCA customer support for further assistance. It's also possible that your specific TV model may not be compatible with the Comcast remote.

  1. Check the cables: Ensure that all cables are securely connected to the TV and to the device you're trying to connect. Make sure the cables are not damaged or frayed. Try a different HDMI cable to see if that resolves the issue.
  2. Check the input: Make sure the input you are using is selected on the TV. You can usually do this by pressing the "Input" or "Source" button on your remote control.
  3. Check the device: Make sure the device you're trying to connect (such as a DVD player or cable box) is turned on and that it's set to output video to the TV.
  4. Check the TV's settings: Some TVs have a setting that allows you to select which type of device you are connecting (such as a DVD player or cable box). If your TV has this setting, make sure it's set correctly.
  5. Restart the TV: Sometimes simply restarting the TV can resolve the issue. Turn off the TV and unplug it from the power source for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, then it may be necessary to replace the logic board.
