    HV  Block notes:

    1) Remove light box from TV

    2) Flip up PCB on CRT (front) side

    3) Locate HV block

    4) Unplug 4 or 5 ground wires,push aside

    5) Notice how RGB, input and focus wires are labeled and

        where they plug in----make notes...release /unplug wires..

    6) Make a hook from paper clip to retrieve rubber guide sleeve,

         one for each wire,four the same size,one slightly longer for

         focus lead....

    7) dis-mount old block....mount new block ( discard new plastic

        lock sleeves--originals work just fine....

    8) Make sure each wire has rubber guide sleeve...

    9) Re-install all wires as they were before--

    10) Fire it up!!!! Hopefully,you are done--if not-------

         Unplug RGB wires one at atime to see which CRT is bad!

        Please let me know.........T.

        originals work just fine...

Sounds like the color wheel or lamp I would check the lamp first to insure thats its not broken as they can make a pop when they fail sometime (Breaking) then I would check the color wheel you will be able to tell if the color wheel arear has the noise coming from it.

Will not turn on

If you replaced the FL231 without replaceing the DL231 it will usually work for a little while then fail. However if the sound youre hearing now is a short sharp chirp which coincides with the power indicator its often caused by a failed flyback and HOT Transistor, if the sound sounds like a soft psssst three times then DL030 and DL032 all items are on the Deflection/power board.

No , if fuse was blown you would not get the popping. How old is unit ? It sounds like your high volt splitter. common problem with rca. repair should not cost more than 250.00. you will want to have chassis number  and manu date for help

Will not turn on

Does the set make any sounds. DOes the front green led light or flash when you try to turn it on.. if not then it could be as simple as a fuse, if it does flash then it can be many problems
