SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 27F520T RCA Truflat, won't scan for channels, auto or manual, only blue screen, no channels on tv

You need to replace the microprocessor. GoodLuck there is 52 pins to unsolder and resolder a new one. The price for the chip may bee about $35

RCA 20F514TD has lost horizontal hold. How can I adjust this? I have found no button or menu option discussed in the manual or by searching.


Horizontal rolling is the fault to your TV I assumes. It is a circuit fault. It can't be adjusted by customer controls. Contact any experienced service technician.

I connect the cable,it doesnt show anything!I try the auto channel search for both cable and antenna,it doesnt find any channel at all!it says-no signal..-rca 20inch sdtv truflat.dual combo with dvd player...


I assume you tried the cable on a working TV to make sure there is a signal on the cable line and that the cable terminal is OK. See if you can control the input selector and set it up for RF or TV reception. If OK, try to tune in channels manually or in auto mode. Do this in programming mode. If you notice any noise on the screen, this means the source selector circuit is OK. If there is no noise, the source selector may not be latched to the RF circuit output. Try to feel the terminal at the back of the TV set. If it feels like it moves when pressure is applied in various directions, chances are the solder connection for the terminal onto the circuit board may be faulty. Resoldering them would be easy for DIY enthusiasts. If it isn't the culprit, try the DVD. If it works fine, then the video circuits must be ok. The trouble could be from the video source selector circuit backwards to the RF block. Usually an IC senses the power condition of the DVD player. If it senses that the player is ON, the IC latches on the signal coming from the DVD player. See if there i a separate power button for the DVD. More later, please post a feedback

I need the code to do an auto channel search for my lg tv so i can go up and down from channel to channel instead of typing the number to the channel in


Your auto channel search should be in your menu on the TV. Find your menu button on the front of your TV or on the remote.Make sure before you do a auto search you set your TV to cable, that can also be be done through your menu screen. If you can change the channels on the remote and control the volume your remote is already programmed.

How to run channel auto scan


Okay here's how you do it. Sadly they buried this DEEP in the user guide and I stumbled across it -

Press the TV Menu button then with the < or > arrows scroll to the Channel menu. From there you can select the auto scan.
