My CTC195 Rca Series Tv before I turned it off the picture on it was curved & colors were blurred & now it will not turn on at all..What can be wrong with it? Thanks for any help
The fact that the picture was curved tells me that the pincussion circuit was faulty. If your not a tech then your gonna have to get a pro to assist you with this repair as everything is soldered in and theres no user replaceable parts in this set as they are all soldered in. If you know electronics then the most common parts for the set being dead would be the hi-voltage transformer and the horizontal output.. Also the small coil l401 has to be resoldered. Now for the pincussion circuit you gotta check waveform on base of tl81 for 13.7 vpp and if its not there replace IL81 and RL81. If its is there then check the transistor TL81 and TL82 & CL85. Im sure you will find on of them to be bad. Lke I said if your not a tech you can get a bad shock piddleing with this set. Good Luck
