Either get a priest to do an exorcism..... or it sounds like an internal issue.... likely a bad capacitor. if you are able to do some basic troubleshooting ... remove the back and look for any capacitors with rounded tops.

The problem sounds like a problem with a power supply or a power chip. These can be a cheap fix if you can find a cheap TV repair man, but expect to pay hundreds at a TV repair shop.

I have a 20'' RCA TruFlat SDTV/DVD combo that's not even 2 years old and for the last week or so, whenever I try to turn it on, the picture flickers for a second and then shuts off. It usually takes 3-4-5...


The RCA tv's have the highest breakdown problems in the industry and usually take a slew of parts in the process when they finally quit. Now if you are very lucky you may have bad connections on the main board, but with history these sets carry I'am inclined to run it until it fails completely and buy a new tv.

My dad has a 27" rca sdtv truflat tv a 2006


there is a major fault in the main circuit board (pcb) and needs to be fixed its not a fuse it not a reset problem its a dynamic fault that could be from a bad resistor to a downed capacitor if you have knowledge of these components then check them using a multimeter find the faulty parts and replace accordingly. but if you have no idea then it will need to go into the repair shop. a lot of our customers ask us if the unit (tv) etc after being fixed will be any good or should they buy a new one. a good tech will fix the unit and in most cases it will be tweeked and work better but always get a quote up front and hold them to it within $50.00


best of luck to you

Hello

Your TV has blocked out I thinks. Try the folloing

Mosr RCA and GE sets use a four digit code to control its V-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works.

  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
Sinotec:
If you have the original remote (RC-A07) for Sinotec tv, then press and hold down the Music button for about 10 seconds.
OK

My RCA truflat tv won't turn on? It is only like


Could be a fuse in the unit or a bad powersupply i would have a estimate done on it before repair gets started as a newer tv would cost less if this was a major issue.

1. check fuse
2. check power supply unit

If you do not know how to do this would recommend you take it to the experts as there is serious high voltage that can be fatal inside, Please do leave postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

RCA 32V550T 32" TV Possessed


I am having the same problem with my RCA 32V550T. This has been the worst purchase I have ever made - it was an expensive TV at the time that I got it and it only worked for a few months. It may or may not come on. It may or may not have sound. It rarely works but If per chance it does come on it will work maybe from 15 mins to 2 hrs. depending on it's mood - yes I think it is possessed. It turns on and off at will. I keep it unplugged most of the time because I worry it may be a fire hazard. I have had it repaired but the problem persists. It's a useless but expensive heap of junk taking up space in my living room. I had a great RCA VCR that I bought many years ago but contemporary RCA products are not the quality they used to be - be smart and stay away from them.
