Question about RCA G36788LV 36" TV
The set wont power up, just get several clicks. The x-former fly looks to have smoked, have a new one coming. I have also noticed that a dime size disk, appears to be solid with two legs soldered on, it says 100-o1a and 81775 or 91775 the legs have let loose, is it some sort of resistor or a thermal fuse? can I solder it back in ? Thanks Tim
The G36788LV uses the CTC197 series chassis. When the set will not power up, the most common cause is a shorted flyback, so you are probably on the right track there. The small part you describe is the degaussing thermistor. It only works for the first half-second when the set is first turned on, and it sends power to the degaussing coil. If you are careful, you can solder the legs back on but be careful not to heat the thermistor too much because it will crack in half if overheated with a soldering iron.
