Question about RCA F36695BC 36" TV

1 Answer

Distorted audio Suddenly the audio became completely distorted. I rechecked the settings and the external/internal switch on the back, and all seemed okay. Picture is perfect. I do have external speakers hooked up and I wonder if I have cooked an audio circuit. I unhooked the external speakers and the distortion continued on the internals. I'm on satellite tv so I rebooted the box. As a final test I switched in a different TV and the AV was fine on that. Help! Thanks

SOURCE: No Picture with Cable Connection

Most likely the tuner is damaged inside of the TV itself, possible from moving the tv or pressing the connector too hard. An easy fix for anyone who has the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron. You may also go into your menu and make sure that you are using the right system for cable....ie pal or ntse

SOURCE: No Sound

Maybe a vacant channel or input is tuned.
• If watching VCR (connected only through antenna input), make sure TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 – same as CH3/4
switch on VCR. Also check to make sure the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct “mode.”
• Simultaneously press the POWER and CHANNEL DOWN buttons on the front panel to reset the TV.

HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU.. GOODLUCK

SOURCE: volume distortion only on tv setting

RCA HAD A CERTAIN MODEL SERIES THAT HAD A REALLY BAD DESIGN,,IT SEEMS THAT SOLDER CONNECTIONS STARTED BREAKING LOOSE AND DEPENDING WHERE THEY CAME LOOSE,,YOU WOULD HAVE PROBLEMS IN THAT CERTAIN CIRCUIT..TO DETERMINE IF YOU HAS THAT SERIES,,WE WOULD NEED THE CHASSIS # ON THE BACK...
IF THE CONNECTIONS CAME LOOSE IN THE VERTICAL CIRCUIT--THE PICTURE WOULD CLOSE UP ,,IF IN THE TUNER SECTION--YOU WOULD LOOSE CHANNELS ,,IF IT WAS IN THE AUDIO SECTION--YOU WOULD GET CRACKLYN SOUND OR NO SOUND
ONE THING YOU CAN TRY--PUT IT BACK IN THE TV MODE,,GENTLY TAP ON THE CABLE CONNECTOR IN THE BACK OF THE SET AND SEE IF IT CLEARS UP,,IF SO YOU HAVE THE CONNECTION ISSUE--WILL NEED A TECH..GOOD LUCK ..TUNICA

SOURCE: f25216bc RCA 25 inch TV. Color is distorted with a heavy red tint

You either have a bad CRT or a Shorted Red Output IC/Transistor. One other possibility is if
someone turned the Screen Control down if it is accessible from the back of the set.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: RCA 27R410T Television colors are distorted

If you`re talking about colored spots in the screen, then you may have a degauss problem. It was frequent for those sets to have bad solder joint on the degaussing coil connector or thermistor next to it.If you`re handy with a soldering iron these connections would be near the a.c line input. good luck and don`t forget to unplug

Distorted audio


Check the connections to the speaker(s) and make sure the connections are clean and sound first. If you are running in bridge mode, make sure the connections are correct- someone may have unplugged them.. Check to make sure input sensitivity is correct, and make sure mode is correct for your setup. and press rest button as a last resort.

Check external connections to make sure nothing is shorting, and also check to make sure any inputs are not shorted or broken, and any muting or monitor functions are switched off on the mixer. Also check any network connections to make sure they have not pulled apart in the keystone.

Terrible sound, sounds like speaker blown. Got it 2 days ago.


If this is a "new to you" TV, keep reading. If it is a brand new TV, I'd be on the phone to the store to have a replacement ready for delivery / pick up. You do not want to be repairing a TV that is 2 days old.

The first thing to do is determine if the distortion is coming from the speaker or if it is on the signal going into the speaker. Do both speakers sound distorted or only one?

You didn't include the model number of your TV, so I can't speak to specifics. Look for a terminal on the rear of the set identified as "speaker" or "external speaker". If provided, there will be one set of terminals marked for the left and one for the right external speaker.

Connect a speaker directly to the terminals marked for either the left or right speaker (connect to the one that sounds distorted if only one of the built in speakers works correctly - other wise pick either speaker terminal pair.). Speakers that have RCA plugs on them, have built in amplifiers, require batteries or or to be plugged in to an outlet should not be connected here.

Alternatively, you could connect a pair of stereo headphones or earplugs if your TV offers a jack for them. It would have a headphone icon or say "phones" above the jack if one is provided.

Once connected, turn the TV on, lower the volume and set the TV to enable the external speakers / disable the internal speakers. This may be done via menu item selection or a small switch near the speaker terminals. Slowly increase the volume to listen to the quality or clarity of the sound coming from the speakers you connected. If they sound distorted, the problem lies with the audio amplifier in the TV. If they sound OK, then there is a problem with the speakers in the TV.

If you can't return the TV, you may have to see about using the left and right audio line out or HDMI jacks to send the audio to an external amplifier and speakers to hear the program.

I hope this was helpful and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

My hp laptops volume sounds really distorted im not sure why?


The first thing to check is to ensure you have the most updated drivers for your computer and the audio section. If that is okay, then it may be that the speakers are busted. If you have a set of headphones, you can plug them in and if the sound is okay, then the problem is probably your speakers.

Distored sound


distorted sound from external speakers or internal speakers?
isolate please. remove external speakers if you have one. just troubleshoot on the internal speakers alone.
uninstall the audio drivers. install the latest one. if fails. download then flashed the latest bios.
run diagnostics extended test to check the internal speakers. if also fails then replace the internal speakers.

The sound on my Dell laptop has suddenly gone very tinny and distorted. Does anybody know what the cause may be and how I could fix it without calling Dell in India?! Thanks


I would use the audio output of your netbook to supply signal to any external audio system so you can determine is it is an internal circuit problem or simply a failed speaker. If the distortion is present in the sound output from the external system, then a circuit in the netbook has failed. If it isn't audible in the external system, then a junky speaker has failed in the netbook.

Audio Distortion after System Crash


sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.

1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume)
2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips)
3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot
4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also).
5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")

i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.

i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal.
i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again
