Re: TV LIFE FROZEN AND FLASHING AWAY
RCA tv's have lately been having a EPROM chip problem( it controls , power on/off , channel up/down , mute , menu , ect... this is happening to other models as well
you can leave it unplugged for a couple of days and then it might work for a while but it will get worse untill it is repaired

Philips TV model 34PW9815 the LED on the front of the unit turns green when first plugged into electrical outlet, and then immediately starts to flash red. nothing on the unit works and it doesnt respond to controls either on the set or the remote
I turned the TV off. I held in all of the (4) buttons on the front of the TV and turned the TV back on again....this seemed to free up the remote control access and I was able to work the TV normally. The four buttons were the channel and the volume controls.
I have the same TV and had the same problem. It's due to a failure in the front-panel buttons, which are very sensitive. Mine got so sensitive that they were registering presses all the time, even when nothing was near them.
Since I never used the front-panel buttons, I solved the problem by opening up the TV and disconnecting the front panel from the rest of the TV electronics. This was somewhat difficult to accomplish due to the fair bit of TV disassembly I had to do to get to that connector. After I put the TV back together, the "NOT AVAILABLE" problem was solved, but somehow I had damaged something else--the tuner, composite, and S-Video inputs lost their color and now only show up black-and-white. (Luckily, I only use the component video inputs, which were unaffected.)
This can be a sign that the picture tube is starting to fail. If you feel comfortable working with the back off, try the following:
With the back off, locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should 2 adjustments available on this transformer. Turn the top one (screen control) slightly clockwise, this should allow the set to work as expected. If that is the case, the picture tube is starting to fail and the adjustment has bought you time to find a new set. The lower control is for focus. Note: if you turn the control too much, the picture will be really bright and you will see the retrace lines as well.
Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck
I had this happen. (ontop of the button board infront shorting out). I took the back off, and if your looking at the screen it'll be on your right. There is a metal box with two ribbons coming out of them, I unplugged both and plugged both in, and now she turns on without any issues. Not sure why, but it works. Now if I could get some help finding the circut board with the front buttons on it. I.e channel up down and volume.
