RCA TV F36718 with V-port

One day I went to turn it on and the green power light came on but nothing happened [ I think the power light blinked]. After trying several times I took it out of the intertainment center, turned it on a few times but heard crackeling noises so I quit. Whats up????????

This happened to mine in Oct 2007. It was the horizontal output module or transistor. repair cost was $175, good as new!!

That crackly sound could be the flyback transformer sizzleling. if thats the case the horiozontal output transistor is probably bad as well. This repair should be done only by a quilified service person and shouldnt cost over 200 bucks if that much UNLESS of course it was the power sullpy shorting out but most likly in this set what i mentioned. Good Luck

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

The lamp can cause the picture to cycle without spitting out a lamp error. I'd replace the lamp and clean out the dust/dirt from fans, etc to hopefully resolve your issues.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

I can't get my tv to turn on... nothing but blinking red light

Dont know if this will work for you or not, but my brother gave me his because of the same problem. It would power up and a green light would come on, then after 10 -15 seconds it would change to a red blinking light. I plugged a usb cable into the service port on the side and left the other end unplugged. Then plugged the tv back into the power. i took a small screwdriver and ran across the contacts in the end of the usb cable until both the red light and the green lights came on. I did this several times listening fot the clicking noises in the TV. after doing this for approx 20 seconds, i pressed the power button and the TV worked fine. 5 days now and no problems. Only thing I can think is I somehow reset the software and now it is working fine. Hope some of you can figure this out and give it a try. if the TV is just sitting, you have nothing to lose

Tv not powering on

as per your statement there is a loose contact in power supply section of your tv. it is 1oo% sure that allthe parts are ok as tv runs ok when it comes on. but you will have to call tech. as without knowing technology it is dangerous to open tv due to high voltage.
