RCA 32V430T 32" looses color

For no apparent reason, the tv goes from 'color' to black and white. It doesn't usually change back. If you turn the TV off for a while and turn it back on (usually has to be off for a period of time) the color is back. I do not think it has anything to do with "cooling" down. It might just as easily come right back on and since this isn't a "tube" TV. We notice no other changes but this color thing is very inconvenient. The TV hasn't been moved or dropped or anything, however before were given it by my dad he might have had it out in it's original box in freezing weather; maybe even a month or two. The Tv was transported 500 miles. We've had it a year or 2 and this just started though.

Looks like a Cold solder or a EEPROM problem. Get a technician to have a look.

This problem could be caused by 1- a bad or dryed out capacitor, 2- a bad video jungle IC, or 3- problem in the eeprom circuit. Its not a repair a consumer can do without the proper equipment and parts. Your going to have to take the set into a repair shop to be diagnoised. Good Luck

Went black and white rca f32648

so far no proper details are available regarding resetting this particular TV ( f32648 ) .... i have checked user manual also

have you tried following things

1 - playing different dvds (dvd player )
2 - changing different channels ( cable tv or antenna )
3 - increasing ( to maximum ) & decreasing ( to minimum ) [in menu ]
contrast colour tint black level sharpness
picture presets auto colur colour warmth
4 - auto channel searching ( cable tv or antenna )

even after these trials if picture is in black & white then it is a hardware problem - since it is a rare problem no details are available about which component might have got deffective ...... only the service engineer who opens & checks your tv can tell the exact deffective component .......... sometimes it can be loose connection ( cracks at soldering joints - hit your TV lightly with your hand on left side or right side or on top - if color comes & goes then it is loose connection problem - all soldering joints should be resoldered by service engineer ) ..... or an IC might have got deffective ......... only after opening & checking your tv mainboard exact deffective component can be identified ......

for nearest RCA service center call 1800 336 1900 ( this number got from your TV's user manual - click this link for your TV's user manual - free down load - RCA F32648 model -

How to add an Exterior Speaker to Sony KV-13M10

Welcome to FixYa!

To add an exterior speaker to Sony KV-13M10, you have to have an AMPLIFIER.
  • At the back of your TV you will be able to see 3 RCA output namely = VHF/UHF, Audio and Video.
  • Use an RCA cable and connect to the Audio output.
  • At the back of your amplifier, connect the other end of the RCA cable to an RCA input labeled Audio - L (left, usually in white color).
  • Your speaker should be connected to your amplifier labeled output or audio out. The connection type depends on the make and model of your amplifier. The speaker wires usually come in red and black color. red goes to red, black goes to white.

A simple diagram will look like this:

TV audio out -------------> amplifier audio in (left, white color) amplifier audio out (left, white color) -----------> speaker (black wire) amplifier audio out (right, red color) ------------> speaker (red wire)

Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.

RCA TV lost Color

It sounds like your grandson found the "monochrome" setting in the menu on your remote. It may be in the "picture settings", "set-up" or "advanced" setting.

Replace the Horizontal Output transistor and High-Voltage Transformer.
Set will come on, if it goes back off,solder around the switch mode power supply even if it looks good.

RCA 32V430T 32" won't turn on!

The fuse is inside the set and is probably ok, but check to be sure. If you have an ohm meter I would check the horizontal output transistor first. It is a big transistor on a heat sink next to the FBT. It has three pins, check the center pin to one of the others, if low the transistor and probably the FBT is bad.

Have you ever had this problem?

Generally,pincushion may be driven by a chip or IC,but pin out is normally a durable xistor. Servicer adjustments are minor for pin correction.Go to pin out circuit & measure voltages.Get back to me on your findings.
