TV won't come on

I turned the tv on and it made a hissing sound. There was an acidic burning smell with no picture and the unit will not come on at all at this time. The tv is only 3 yrs. old, has not been moved and is in dry area. Any ideas?

    tv won;t come on. power switch blanks and thats all. tv is only little a year old. do you think it is the sensor power switch. thank you carol

    I just encounter the same problem with the KV-32FS320 TV however, unlike the problem of Carol the TV is just a two months old and the remove is original. Would it be possible that the problem is with the manufacturing of the TV itself?

Depends if you know about electronics and have SOME knowledge on how to fix them the user may well be able to source parts to fix them. Read WARNING below..

As suggested the fault could be FBT "Horizontal Output Transistor" (Check to see if shorted.) burnt out resistor or electolytic capacitor.

IF the FBT (Flyback transformer.) needs to be replaced you will want to know how to SAFELY discharge CRT HIGH VOLTAGE (WARNING CRT acts like a huge capacitor and may store around 25000Volts AND CAN KILL a person .) if unsure get qualified person to do repair.

By the way the term "No user servicable parts inside." is to keep
most people safe from high voltages etc inside.

If you know where to go you can get all (Well mostly all) the parts you require.

Things to assist people to help:

Does your TV have self diagnostics?
Ie. does standby led flash in a particular sequence.
This will give a tech a 98% of correctly advising your fault.

If you open the case (Have good lighting.) you should be able to see a burnt out resistor with no problem as it will most likely be brown to black with unreadable color codes or value on it.

Write down the resistor PCB id eg R615 etc. (Same applies to Horizontal Output Transistor etc.)
This will also assist a tech to provide correct information, and reduce the possible causes of fault..

ALWAYS remember if in doubt get a qualified person to do job.

Really cannot help you. Could be many things. Power Regulator short Circuit, Horizontal Output Transistor and FBT ... Best get a professional to take a look. These sets are all solid state, and there are no user servicable parts inside.

Turned on tv no picture only sound then i heard a pop and smelled burning tv turned itself off. 5 min tried turning on tv again nothing happened tv does not turn on at this time

Your RCA TV needs serious troubleshooting. Burning smell is from HV transformer or resistors smoking.

Most likely power supply and/or high voltage circuit or convergence circuit. Many times RCA have multiple or secondary faults that occur with HV or convergence failure.

Repair of RCA HV or convergence usually requires exact manufacturer parts and upgrades or repair in power supply. I would not advise trying this repair without manufacturer support for correct part numbers and service bulletins.

The grey components are Box capacitors chances are the 0047 2KV box capacitor in front of that heat sink is whats shorted out, very common problem for your model.

No picture, perfect sound, burning smell

I assume this is an LCD tv that you have? I would think a fault has developed on your inverter board with one of the components having burnt out & shutting off the drive to the backlights hence the smell & lines on the picture. It would be advisible to take it to a repair centre to have it repaired to check the burning issue as a matter of safety

I just replace convergence board on my akai tv and

There is a burnt capacitor somewhere in the unit. Look for any burnt or swelled up capacitors. You can also usually locate a bad cap if there is burn marks on the system board. Also test power supply with voltmmeter to make sure it is a constant volt reading.

"pop sound", picture out, burning smell...?

Usually, yes. A bulb that has audibly 'popped' will be apparently bad if you pull it out of the TV (shattered). Other times this is a lamp ballast board.

TV was working just fine.. no issues at all.. turned TV on.. and got a click click click sound... no picture, no sound (other than click) smelled like something was hot. TV is about 7 years old. TIA.....

It sounds like it is time for a new TV, unfortunately. Nowadays you can get a new one for about the same as your repair costs would be. If you smell something burning you probably smoked a circuit board.

Wont turn on smell burning

Can you remove the rear panel and check if the hissing is coming from the flyback? Which is a large transformer with a large red wire coming from the top of it? If so can post a link where you can get a replacement their not exspensive and their easy to replace. If its not coming from the flyback post a picture of where the hissing is coming from and I will identify the parts for you, But I feel its the flyback due to the hissing. respond to this same post so I have your correct model number when you reply.

No picture or sound

If you had a burning smell, well the board is toast. These sets are made to replace the entire board at one time. Before installing the replacement module, the picture tube should be checked. A defective picture tube ( such as a G1 short) may cause a failure in the power supply section.
