Hello All,

This problem is quite common in these type set which employ the use of the Thompson ITC222 chassis.
There are three capacitors that create this situation, they are:
CP120, CP140, and CP150. If you have a background in electronics and know how to solder well, this is an easy problem to take care of. This just requires the replacing of these capacitors.
So if you do have a background in electronics I have the schematic if you need it.

If you do not have a background in electronics I would suggest that you have qualified TV technician do this for you.

Thank you,

RCA F19421 Stuck on video since switched from dishnetwork to cable

Some RCA TV's have a "video" option that requires you to use the original remote control to cycle up or down the channels.
Also, try unplugging the TV's from the power receptacle for 30 minutes....some times, that will cause the TV to reset.
With the power cord unplugged, manually push the power button on the front of the TV to discharge all capacitors.
Ensure the 30 minute is complete before plugging it back in.
Let me know if this works.
Thank you!
