1 Answer

Rca 32v432t tv plays,turnsoff,turnson, and stays in autochannel search mode

Whenever I turn on the tv, it plays a few mins. turns off, then on, and stays in autochannel search mode. I have pushed and held down buttons to get to menu, set tv in FRNT position,and erased all channels except ch. 3 thru vcr. Works for a while, then resumes autosearch again. I have removed back of tv, tact switches seem fine.

    I unplugged the front panel, blew off excess dust build up, pulled front panel buttons away from tact switches, and reconnected the front panel buttons. The tv has been working fine now for about 2 1/2 hours. Thank you for all of your help.

Your going to need to do a resolder of dry looking solder jobs and or poor solder jobs
this could also be your front control board , try disconnecting it and see if the tv stays on
it is possible that the sensor has gone bad or the crystal needs to be replace or worse the EEPROM
my rca 27 in was doing the same thing , i resoldered the board and it worked great for 7 months
so do a resolder of all suspicious solder and heated components
then let me know what happens
also what is your model # for your rca tv ?
also one of rca's kits for repair is some solder and paste , so that should tell you something in its self about rca repairs ( the solder with the paste is supposed to make it handel heat better )
please give a fixya rating so that if you need more help in your tv , I can continue to help you further , thanks

    ok,you will need to confirm some things for me ,like any dry or poor solder is resoldered , exspecially on heated components like the tuner, test the sensor on the control board , and transformer solders

    the most common fixes are the eprom,crystal, tuner, zener diode,resistors and bad solder connections and a few with the control board P001a plug socket soldered in backwards, check and resolder those that look suspicious

    then let me know the results

Need a code for a RCA Universal Remote on a Broksonic Flat Panel TV

If you have the code book just hold the device you want to set up
like tv, vcdr, etc. and the power button at the same time. The power botton will stay lit. Put in your 5 digit code...hold it till the tv,vcr turns
off. Turn it back on and try the rest of the functions. If it dose not work
on certain function just hold down that key till that function works. Hope this helps.

I have a RCA TV 32v432t and when u turn it on it shuts off if u hit the side it will stay on ,is it dirt? i bought it used. worked for the first week

there probably is bad connection in one of the boards in the tv.
it's best you have this checked by a technician due to very high voltages in the set (26000 volts)

This set is not digital tuning and you would need a converter for off-the-air reception. You can get full specs and manual downloads from RCA's site:

You need the factory remote only for this model of set!

Contact the service rep for your set and order a new remote.

As for the service mode, most RCA sets require an external service interface.

In many models of sets, the results and commands are in HEX. You will need the service manuals, hardware interface, and instrumentation to do proper setups and adjustments.

As for accuracy of adjustments, from factory these sets were very accurate. If there are changes, this is due to failing parts, and not from adjustments going out. The setups are all uPC controled and are exact. The set should be serviced to make it work properly, and not adjusted to offset faults.
