Question about RCA F35670MB 35" TV

1 Answer

TV won't power up and blows the fuse

Tv worked great (fantastic picture as usual) one night and the next morning it was completely dead. No power. We took the back off and found the fuse and replaced it. As soon as we plug into power source the fuse blows (green light flashes). Any ideas what it could be? Worth repairing a 10 year old tv? The television is very heavy and I'm only going to move it once. Thanks.

A 10 year old RCa most likly has a bad Horizontal output transistor as well as the main High Voltage transformer and The transformer is no lonmger available from RCA. The replacement wont last longer then a year if your lucky. My advice on a set this old ?? Buy a newer one!!

I shut the tv off last night and now it won't turn

If total dead (no lights on blinking etc) follow power cord into the set and find and check the main fuse--in this set it usually is a glass 5 amp fuse.

35" RCA 35" Entertainment Series - PIP

ok is the set completlely dead. DOEs the Led on the front flash. if it does not flash this is an indication of a primary power interuption. POSSIbley main fuse. Now generally the main fuse does not blow unless there something else wrong. some other component shorted. Now if the light flashes then this is an indication that the main fuse is still good and that the processor is getting power and that it has detected a condition that requires it to shut down. ussaly a high voltage issue

Hitachi big screen model CU5003D purchased 9/1991

Most likely the power supply has failed or has detected a fault in another circuit. (The CRT-type rear projection TVs were prone to convergence amplifier failure, which could blow internal fuses; you may have a bad convergence amp that doesn't quite blow its fuse but still overloads the power supply. Usually they go out completely; the TV still runs, but one or more colors in the picture distort into a bow-tie shape.)

The TV was obsolete 15 years ago, so it would probably be impossible to get a replacement modules. A technician may be able to repair the TV by tracking down and replacing the bad component, but you would likely pay well over $100 in bench charges.

You can get a 50" LCD TV that uses less power and takes up much less space for $300-$600, has nearly twice as sharp a picture, and works with modern digital TV inputs.

No picture, sound and/or stanby indicator light...dead!

Loss of low voltage supply has happened. This regulates the ability of the set to sense the remote as well as the front panel switches. Could be anything from open T1 secondary to a regulation problem; i.e. excess drop from defective component....accordianman
