Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

Powers off by itself

I have a rca 36 inch tv from about 1991 and last couple of months it would go off by itself about twice a week. it would go right back on if i hit the power button, but not anymore. early last week it started going off every time it was on after awhile. then it didn't come back on at all, i pushed the power button and i hear a click then heard the tv screen do the degauss thing and the light goes off and it is done. now it does nothing at all i hear no noises and don't see anything on screen. i tried unplugging it and checked the fuse but it was good. any help would be appriciated.

I have a 27 inches RCA TV (model:27R410T) , Firstable when i turn the tv on ,it works fine but just for about 2 minutes , after that video has gone , no video only audio ,and start changing channels...

It maybe some semiconductor IC got hot, need service or repair. It may repair itself if you leave it on standby for a month(at operating temprature a week)? This is low tempeature(the lower the temperature the longer the time) annealing or moisture curing technology, used by Nasa on transistor failure in satellites, or long range unmanned vehicles. You can always repair the unit later.

36 inch RCA tv (model # 36V430T)

I wouldn't advise doing it yourself. All you have to do to kill yourself is touch the wrong part connected to the magnets on the back of the tube-even if it has been unplugged for a couple of days- no joke. The repair place will be better able to track down the part, and install it, and guarentee it. Be aware- it might take a week or two for them to just get the part-then they have to install it.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

Sony KV Trinitron WEGA 36" TV won't turn on

My 36 wega did the same thing last week it must be contagious. Blinks 7 times mostly but sometimes 6 if hit power switch again. The problem is the D-boards shorted Flyback high voltage transformer but the ones Sony is selling $130 do not hold up and seem to burn out in a few days, yes twice bitten. Finally they send me new D-board can't wait to see if this fixes it once and for all. The board costs around $200 but is worth it to get it running again.

All the reports are showing the same problem the TV is in shutdown mode.

Something is wrong and it is refusing to start it makes a chirping or clicking sound. Solution is that it needs to be repaired nothing you can do unless you want to try replacing the motherboard yourself.

TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.

check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.
