Q:

What causes a 48� RCA to beep when plugged in?

A:

This answer depends on what model your TV is and whether this sound is a beep or a squeel. In my mind I picture an earlier RCA with the horizontal output shorted making a squeeling noise. These TV's used to have B+ up at all times and power on only switched on communication. I am not familiar with some of the latest RCA TV's but even the screen size suggests its an early model. I do not feel comfortable giving you an opinion without more information.

Q:

What can cause my RCA 67� TV to go dead?

A:

Leave the TV unplugged for an hour then plug it back in and see if it is still dead. If nothing happens then someone will need to take a look at it. They'll start with the main fuse, check standby, see if you horizontal is shorted. Let them know of anything you heard or saw when the TV went out or if there was anything going on before you noticed you couldn't turn it on like a storm or utility work outside.

Q:

Why will my RCA TV not stay on?

A:

The first thing to do is cycle the ac by unplugging it and plugging it back in and then trying another outlet. There is not much more that can be done to the set without getting into it. This chassis usually gives a three blink code when it has shut down and needs to be serviced. If it is not resolved talk to some local repair shops and servicers like Sears to get quotes on coming out to diagnose the set. There have been some common caps on the power supply that shuts it down and gives the error code. From what I've read online they usually appear to be bulged. This may or may not be your problem, but I suspect it’s the best place to start if you do indeed have a shutdown symptom. Once inside the set the tech can look for other scenarios like a leaky tube or a damaged board. Tell the tech what happened before it went out. Useful information includes if it was not turning on in the mornings at first, if it went all one color, if the colors separated, things like that.
