Question about RCA F25442 25" TV

1 Answer

Seeing red !

The picture on my 2001 RCA TV model F25442 suddenly went from perfect to shades of red. When I turn the set off and on again, I see a narrow horizontal band of colors, predominantly red, which then expands to full screen color but faded looking. Within seconds the color fades to full red.

I had a television that went to a bright shade of blue.A friends neighbor worked for sony television plant where the new tubes came down the assembly line.His job was to make sure tubes were working fine,if one color was dominant then his job was to smack the front center of the tube with a rubber mallot to fix the problem.He suggested i try that with my tube while the set was on.It worked and solved my blue problem.Apparently he explained,the gun connections in the tube came loose and to fix it was to smack it this caused the connection to reweld itself.For you I would use the palm of an open hand and smack the tube dead center with a good hard smack.Dont be afraid of breaking the glass because its very thick and strong.Give this a try.Hope it helps.Good luck!

My Tv started with flashing red/orange colors. Then later the screen turned red/orange and the TV shut off. When I attempt to turn it on again, the screen stayes red for a few minutes then shuts off.


The problem based on the model number is in or around the red picture tube---the bright red screen causes the set to draw too much current and the shutdown circuit detects this and turns set off--self protection.

Each picture tube (3) has a IC chip on the board connected to it--shorted chip or bad picture tube.

Shop repair in most cases.

On screen writing over past the left side


Ok, so I'm seeing RCA TV, but you're talking about writing, so I'm wondering if you're using this TV as a monitor?

If that's the case, it could be dependent on the the video card settings.


If not, the input device.


You could possibly have your view mode set to stretch or something like that. Maybe look in the settings on the monitor and see if it'll let you do a factory reset.

Zenith TV has me seeing red.


The red gun in the picture tube itself is shorted on. You will have to replace the picture tube itself to fix the problem. Probably want to just buy a new set. Sorry!

You have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor. Your set would have to be taken to a shop to have these parts replaced. Stargazer

Sanyo HT32744 Picture mostly green and blue


On mine I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.
