I recently to my own stipudity plugged my T.V. into 220V. I'm in Germany and before I realized it wasn't a dual votlage T.V. it was too late. Is there an easy to replace fuse I may have blown? I hope!...I heard it fizzle or pop?

Re: RCA D56W20 no power
Your problem is most likely in the power supply section. No doubt a blown fuse, a diode or two and probably a few resistors. To be sure that you found all the problems you will need to check all the components in the power supply. If you know how to use a DMM have at it, safely of course. First unplug it, if you already haven't done so. Check the fuse for continuity. If you are lucky that may be your only problem, but don't count on it. Look for burned components or burn marks on the circuit board. Don't overlook resistors with large values and replace any components which do not test within the proper parameters. When you are sure that you found all the problems don't plug the unit back in to 220 or you will have to do it all again. Get the appropriate sized 220/120 transformer which means one with a current rating higher than the current draw of the TV. That information should be on the data tag on the rear of the unit. Again, remember safety and Good luck.

Yes, you need a step down transformer. These are often rated in watts (the power rating is the same on both sides of a transformer) so it is easy enough to match this with the power consumption of the stereo. Apparently you will need about a 4kW transformer eg
Cost of that board is 352.00 if they are even available First CK 2 fuses thereis one on each of turner small brown rectrangle looking caps/but they arre fuses/ if they are open set will not startup.Also replace IF connector.to turner.
ok. the FLyback is the large black part on the lower left corner.. has large red wire comeing from it... the HOrizontal.. is the large black transistor right in front on the left side on the largest heat sink..getting these parts are tricky.. you must get some numbers on the part itself..there are three different flybacks.... and the horizontal is ussally 259899 rca part number. Good luck and if you need any more assitance email me at FORDTV.com ; I work on alot these chasis
