Question about RCA F36685 36" TV

1 Answer

Sound Fades, then TV shuts off then continues to recycle on & off

1999 RCA Model F36685, Service No. F36685/YX1 Chassis # CTC197CN. After initially turning on the set, it operates for about 5 minutes, then the sound fades off and the TV clicks off. It then automatically recycles on again and the trouble repeats again, each time staying on for 15-30 seconds or less. Is this a serious problem or worth fixing? Thanks for your help!

Sometims several capacitors start going bad giving you the audio problem, but I don't remember the set turning itself off. That could be a secondary problem around the flyback transformer which may have a bad solder connection. I would check that first. Otherwise, I would be tempted to go with HDTV.

Turn on tv and no sound or picture, just a "beeping" sound

The main board to your TV has the fault. Check and replace it. The work is a skilled one, and not a user reparable. Contact any experienced service technician.

I have an RCA 36"

Hi, in most of these RCA TV, we found a common problem with that strange sound.
You need electronics skills to solve this problem. The sound coming from the TV ( back cover), caused by a faulty transformer T14401 location number, part number 241319, also a transistor horizontal output is shorted need be replaced. location Q14401 part number, part number 237470. This is a difficult and you may have to find a tv shop and ask for a previous estimate of money. I hope all this clear in my explanation and if you have further questions, I'll be here to help.

Picture on TV shuts down but sound still on.

If this RCA TV has a Chassis number of ITC222 then you need to call a tech to swap out the deflection circuit board for a new or rebuilt board. This RCA Chassis is a TV Techs worst nightmare to repair.
