Re: picture fuzzy and flickers (like tracking)

The flicker could be caused by a bad solder connection arcing or even a bad picture tube. If you notice the screen getting drawed in from the sides as well as top and bottom it may be in the power supply regulation circuits, but the focustat around the area of the high voltage transformer could also be breaking down. If it's over about 8 years old, I would replace it with a HDTV set. Check out the latest issue of Consumer reports for ideas. (No I don't work for them-I've just seen so many people just walk into a *Mart and pick out a TV like they were choosing a box of cerial without doing a bit of research to find one that would suit them best, that I'm trying to put out a word to the wise among us).

I have a RCA L32HD31YX12 TV. The TV works fine for a half hour and then the screen flickers and goes black. The sound continues. If I turn the set off for a half hour, it works again for another half

You have answered your own question, someone needs to open it and find a loose plug or broken solder connection--if it reacts to being tapped on that is the issue- a physical problem inside.

My tv technika 42 inch there smoke coming out of the back at the top there a plastic burning smell and the picture is flickering and dull

Try to open the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it, then try to look for a bulge up capacitor beside the flyback transformer. if you see this capacitor try to replace it with the same value. feel free to send feed back good day and best regards.

Humming noise when turned on. no picture. is there a reset button

There is no reset for this kind of problem. The chances are that the flyback transformet is shorting, horizontal output transistor is bad, or possibly bad power supply board. The unit will have to be opened up and troubleshot. Some RCA units seem to be prone to this problem, and a friend of mine paid $300 twice within 6 months, so I can't vouch for RCA's long term reliability.
Hope this helps.

The Horizontal Output transister is shorted and may have been caused by a bad flyback.

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Flickering Picture?

Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
