Question about RCA F32450 32" TV
TV will not turn on, is my picture tube out?
Most likely cause would be a blown fuse on the power supply if you are getting no lights on the front, no response from the buttons, and no warmth from the back of the set. First check that not only is the power socket in the wall working, but also that the plug on the TV power cord is not faulty or distorted so it doesn't make the circuit when plugged into the wall, also if it has a fused plug, check that. Then if you feel up to taking the cover off, make sure the set is unplugged and leave it for a few minutes first. take off the back cover (usually a few screws around the base of the set, but it should be obvious) follow where the power cord enters the box, and about the first thing it should connect to is likely to have a fuse. Probably a couple of metal spring clips with a glass tube type fuse sitting in them. The fuse should have a rating stamped on it and you should be able to get a replacement at most hardware stores, but make sure you get the same type as well as rating. If a replacement fuse doesn't cure the problem then the next thing to suspect would be the transformer and rectifier circuit - the fuse should have protected these, but sometimes it doesn't work that way. If you need help checking these then please ask again, but I suspect the fuse is your problem. Hope this helps you out, please ask again if you need more info :)

I have a RCA XBOX Entertainment Series TV 32" it is maybe 4 to 5 years old. It started having problems a few weeks ago the TV would be on and working fine and then you would see a black screen with the Direct TV logo floating on screen. You would have to push a button to make it come back on. Then two weeks ago watching it she screen just went black and still had sound but then few minutes later sound went and made loud noise until just turned off. Wait a little while turn back on it would work a few minutes then same thing again.
What do you think it could be?
Is is repairable and what do you think approximate cost is if even worth it.
Thanks trash or not!

Thanks Techman!!! My Panasonic CT-36HL43 HDTV stopped working after a severe T-Storm down here in Miami. Your suggestion of the blown fuse was the reason my TV didn't turn on. Very easy repair and two fuses cost less than $3 bucks! Just thinking of loading this huge TV into my SUV and driving to the TV repair man let alone the charge of checking and replacing a fuse was one that I didn't want to experience. thanks, Jimmy in Miami

No probably not. If a pic tube is bad it will most of the time show a bad pic or a predomenate color over the screen need more info please as chassis # on the back cover please.
