Question about RCA F36685 36" TV
Tv some times makes noise when power button is pushed, other than that it does nothing.
Ahhh the noise maker comes to life again .. Ok my friend this is a common problem with this set If your lucky?? If you know anything about trouble shooting tvs then this is what ya got.. Try first to measure the Horizontal output transistor. It will meaqsure a few ohms between the base and emmitter. But the base and collector should measure about 450 to 550 olms on the diode settings onm the metter.if it measures shorted you need to replace the flyback tranformer along with the Horz output transistor. Now if the HOT( thats horiz output transistor)is not shorted then theres a little coil in the horizontal drive thats causing problems as you need to take out the coil from the PCB and scrape off the ends and reinstalkl it. also the horizontal driver tranformer as well as the resistor that feeds the transformer could be bad and thast is a 3200 ohm at three watts. if ya dont have a clue what I just said the sets gonna cost ya ariynd 200 to 300 to fix .. Is it worth it to ya>?????lol Good luck
