Problems With RCA Television (Gray Screen)

Hello, I purchased an RCA Television (Model #F25645) a few years ago. Everytime I play a DVD, use my VCR, watch DirecTV, or play on my PS2, I get sound, but I always end up with a gray screen, not snowy, but gray. This just started happening about a week ago. Please help me correct this problem. Thank You, Mariah

    Thank You, but I just tried something else that I never even thought of, till now. I just simply unplugged the television, and plugged it back in. I don't know why I hadn't thought of that before, but now it works perfectly.

Your problem is the old rca tuner sheild repair thingy. Its a simple but tricky repair where the tuner grounds around the tuner sheild and under the bottom of the tuner sheild has to be resoldered. Most repair shops in the states that i know of charge like 65 to 125 .00 to do this simple repair. Now if you know how to solder you can get this reapir mod from sams photo facts and do it your self but its really an involved thing if you dont know what your doing as some of the serface mounted parts look like a spec of dirt and i've seen a few peeps clean off those specs and ruin the whole set. Best for you to take this set in for a repair. Good luck

This is commonly known as a vertical deflection problem. It cannot be fixed with an adjustment, but requires changing some electronic components. Namely the vertical output IC (integrated circuit) and in addition usually in this model a resistor which may appear to be burned.

I've connected my new Sony Blue-Ray Disk Player to my RCA F25645 TV via the three (Red, White, Yellow) composite cables but the screen only says "unusable signal" and will not display the Blue...

There is no RGB connector input at the rear of your RCA tv. There is Video, Audio-L, Audio-R and S-video inputs. You won't get any response from your TV, if you connect the RGB connector to the above said audio video connections. You can connect the Blu-ray player with S-Video connector. After connecting it with specific S-Video cable to your TVs S-Video input and Blu-ray players' S-video output, assaign the input of your TV to S-Video, by going to its Menu, and sufing through it. OK.

My RCA tv is only 1 year old and the screen only is light black after turning it on. It has volume but no picture and it will play DVD but still not picture.


The problem is either the lamp is faulty or you have a bad t-com board.
Have the lamp checked and if it not faulty, then replace the t-com board of the television.

Take care

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.

My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?

This is a common problem and a local repair place shouldnt charge more then 90 to 125 bucks to repair. Its the tuner and tuner sheilds that need to be resoldered. Theres even an RCA service bulletin about this repair. At one time RCA was giving out rebate coupons if you had this repair done for future purchaces of RCA products but Im not sure if they still do this . Good Luck
