If the set trys to turn on and makes noise three times then you hit the switch again and it will try to come on again churping three times , its a shorted horizontal output transistor and a bad flyback transformer. And Im sorry to tell you the transformer is no longer available according to RCA. Its a shame. I just threw out a 56" and a 32 " set that needed a flyback and could not get them.. Well good luck ps please rate this thread.
