Question about RCA F36668 36" TV
Hello, We have a RCA 36 TV that turns off by itself. If you mess with the power cord, it will turn back on sometimes when you jiggle it from the back. We know that it is still getting power, and when it runs the picture if just perfect. It's almost like a short. Please help
Mine comes on at 7:00 by itself and goes off somtimes at 10:00 by itself. It has even been know to change from one channel to the other. We have no cable box, so the first thing our cable company asked was "Is it an RCA?" We had to unplug it entirely when we went on vacation. We do not have a recorder on it nor is the timer set for anything. I even have dates & times this has been happening!!!

It could seem to be a power cord problem But when you move around the cord you are realisticly flexing the printed circuit board assy. If you know all the safety issues around the servicing a solid state tv, then Of course I will assit you, in any way I can, But you must be aware of the high voltage that these sets store , even if they Are unplugged. Its a total safety issue. If you have no experience using a multi- meter as well as the safety issue awarness, then PLEASE seek a pro to assist you with this reapir, as it will get worse in the long run and cost ya more to fix, as everytime you move around the cord and the set shuts off, then goes on , your surging the componets!. Good Luck
