TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/RCA 12" inop

Question
12" RCA portable TV E13332BC F25 won't turn on manually or by remote. Took cover off. Power goes thru set. Checked with volt meter. Fuse good.

Answer
These are not easy to fix because the circuitry is highly optimized for minimum number of parts and still work.  It is not an easy one to troubleshoot.

I would start at the power supply and first check for open diode/rectifiers.  Next check for shorted electrolytic capacitor in the ripple filter.  That is likely where the trouble lies.

And, who knows.  

Hope this helps.
