Question about RCA G36788LV 36" TV

1 Answer

Wont power up

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.

Yellow, magenta, cyan dots appear on screen

I am not laughing but I would suggest if possible from the rear with a light first to see if any of the bugs are on the mirror at the rear of the set inside or the lens This set should have inside---look for that first---anything on the mirror or between it and the screen will be magnified and projected into the picture----it is possible to take a good photo and post it here as well.

I have seen this once before---had lots of little moving specs on screen of a Sony---they had several hundred knats inside flying around that were attracted to the light and warmth there.

Solution in that case actually involved use of Moth balls for a while in the area.

Batterys charged, drill wont work at all, tried switch positions no change still not working

Your brushes are bad. The more expensive drills have removable vent covers on the back of the drill, one each side. Under them you will find a plate about the size of a dime. carefully move the plate around pulling it up. There will be a spring with a copper wire connected to a graphite looking block. This is your brush, sends juice to your motor. If the spring looks burnt or the brush is broken you will need to order a new set. If they look good you can try blowing the motor out with air. If you have a black and decker or skill drill the motor is not repairable. New brushes cost less than $10.

BECAREFUL high voltage transformer inside of unit. Check for blown fuses on the control panel. Check the door interlock sitches. there are usually 2-3. A bad interlock will keep power from the magnatron. Check the thermal fuse, small dime sized disc with 2 wires. look for the schematic it will give the location usually near the magnatron. Checking the magnatron is a little more difficult.

Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW - not working

Yes there is a fuse in the dryer. The black circular thing is a high limit thermostat. Beneath it is the thermal fuse. It is smaller (dime size) and is mounted to the right side of the heating element housing. It is alittle tough to see and get at. You must use the original Maytag part kit.It comes with a new high limit therm. and fuse.
