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.

My samsung plasma tv went out and it just makes a clicking noise and wont turn on i replaced the power board but it still does the same thing help anyone!

It was not your power board, Thought the same on several repairs.Found out it was the main board. The clicking was the tuner relay. I bet you own a SP-R4232. If so,The part you need is BN41-00574A. Also might be under BN94-00669A. Hard to find. Try Shop Jimmy/Or Encompass Parts. Not cheep tho. Hope this info helps.
Have a happy new year. Todd
