    I just started looking at a an RCA TV that would not power up. I read a
    troubleshooting summary somewhere recently that described how someone had
    found their power switch was broken. I managed to remove some screws so that
    I could pull the face plate forward. And I can now see that the power switch
    does indeed look like it is broken and no longer physically reaching the
    circuit board. So I would like to replace that part. (Or I may try to repair
    it - as was described in the link I read, if I can find it again.) So I have
    two questions.I could use help with:

    1. I can only pull out the top part of the frame. The bottom seems to be
    stuck - even though I have removed the same screws on the bottm. It's almost
    as if it is connected to the speaker cloth of the speaker board below. I
    didn't see any other obvious screws and figured it was best to ask others
    for help before I try to 'force' it free. I will need to get it free in
    order to disassemble the power switch.

    And 2, where can I order the switch - if I can not find the repair advice?
    (something about soldering an extension to the switch where it broke.

    thx - robert

    Does the set operate with the remote? If so the most economical repair
    would be to simpally use the remote. If this is unacceptable send me
    the Chassis # along with mo# & iI will attempt to locate a part # for
    you
