Im having the same problem with my set, same model and things. We have it where we turn it on, then it scrolls through channels and then shuts on and off. I would think it's the same thing as the solution mentioned. I know of a TV shop I can stop by and ask about this, what would the costs be associated with getting this fixed, so I know if he's telling me the truth. Thanks!

There are two possibilitie that I can think of for this model set. There have been some instances where coolant from one or more of the projection tubes leak out and drip onto the PC board causing intermittent problems. If not that, then you could have a defective capacitor or intermittent solder connection causing the problem. Capicator C13105 - a 1uf/100v Cap Located Near U13101 Syscon IC has caused this symptom also. Hope you can find someone willing to come out in the cold to fix it for ya.

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


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

Rca 52 inch rear projection


This is a problem common with some RCA/GE TV's. The fix in the past was to install a capacitor between ground and pin 15 of the microprocessor which keeps a data signal riding on the video stream from muting the sound on most stations. By installing this capacitor, you would be disabling the closed caption feature so that feature would no longer work. An authorized RCA TV repair shop may be able to give you more information.
