Question about RCA 32F531T 32" TV
I recieved a rca tv model g35302wk and when i first got it it would turn and go off a few seconds later. if i waited ten minutes and tried again it would come on and go off the same way. but now it doesn't do anything when i push the power button. i checked the fuse and it is good but on the bottom of the circuit board i found a few solder joints that have a bunch of brown stuff around them and on top of the circuit board i noticed that around the some of the smaller capiciters looks like it was stained by something. i didn't see any capaciters popped though
The brown stuff you see is excess flux and is not hurting anything,you need to check the horizontal output transistor for a short,sometimes this transistor goes bad because loose conections in the horizontal driver transformer and could have been intermitant,if the transistor is shorted it likely took the safety resistor that gives him the volts to operate.It seem you are familiar with tv service but some measurements need to be made with a meter to check for a short.If the transistor is bad it need to be replaced with an exact replacement,check for loose conection anyway very carefully,some are hard to see.

Tips for a great answer:
If the power light blinks slowly,
you've tried to turn on the TV during
the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait
approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.
If light blinks, pauses for about a
minute, and blinks again: the lamp is
trying to turn on (TV will turn on
when successful). If TV doesn't turn
on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

Have your TV serial number
and lamp type available (you'll
find this information on the
sticker that's on the right side of
