Question about RCA G35831AT 35" TV
I was trying to add some surround sound speakers to the TV. As I was going to plug in the audio wires from the surround sound to the TV there was a sound, and shortly after that some smoke. I'm not sure, I looked inside and didn't see any visual damage. Now the TV will turn on, then immediately off, then it repeats process 2x. So if anyone has any sort of suggestion, I'd really appreciate it. Thaks.
The G35831AT uses the CTC179 series chassis. When you touched the wires to the speaker jacks you probably somehow managed to short out the audio output IC, which would have sent up some smoke. When the set is turned on, the computer senses that the audio output IC is shorted and shuts the set down. The audio output IC should be replaced and all other circuits checked by a qualified tech familiar with the 179 chassis.
