YOU might have a bad relay or a bad solder connection in the relay control circuit. Sounds like a bad solder joint. Stargazer

There could be a problem in the main power supply or perhaps the standby power supply. To me at a guess i would say there is most likely a bad capacitor in the standby power supply or there is a problem in the switch mode power supply. if you have no electronic troubleshooting skills, play it safe and take the set into a repair shop or replace it. Now a days, a 32" TV set can be had for under 200bucks. Good Luck

The shutdown circuit is turning off the tv, you can try to check the IHVT to see if it is shorted out.

You will need a schematic diagram, and a multimeter.

I can tell you from experience that this is a IHVT or a HOT problem, however it is best to troubleshoot it to find out.

SOURCE: wont turn on

sounds like the tube is out. could be the transformer but probably not. I don't recommend you try fixing this yourself.

However some rcas are funny: unplug it again and leave it unplugged for about an hour then try again.

SOURCE: RCA TV, model number 32V550T. No picture but sound is fine.


this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.

or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

My flat screen Sylvania TV is flashing different colors what's wrong

Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

Have a GE universal remote model number 24922-CL3 1349 what codes do I need to use so it will work with my RCA ColorTrak Plus 1996 model tv with model number F27638BC

If your GE remote is universal, you should be able to search all of its codes for one that will work with your RCA TV. If you search is unsuccessful, you may have to try another universal remote. Not all remotes contain all codes.

I need help finding my code for my TV. Its an RCA Colortrack

To control an RCA TV with a One for All URC-3021, follow these steps:

1) Turn on your TV.

2) On the remote, press the TV key once.

3) Press and hold SET until the LED blinks twice, then release SET.

4) Enter the first four-digit code from the following list:

0047, 1047, 1147, 1247, 1347, 1447, 1547

The LED will blink twice.
If it does not blink twice, go back to step 2 and try the same code again.

5) Aim the remote at the TV and press POWER.
The device should turn off.
If it does not turn off, repeat steps 2 through 5 with the next code in the list.

Hope that helps.

No sound

If you are using a cable box try patching the audio from the box to your stereo system. If that does not apply to you, then getting the set fixed or replacement is in order. A colortrack 2000 is like 20+ years old. They don't make them like that anymore., Too bad.
Good luck!
