RCA F32665 Shows only gray screen, sound works.

RCA F32665 TV About 15 minutes ago, my screen turned an illuminated gray. Sound works, I can pull up menus and prompts, but regardless of whether the cable , dvd, or antennae feed are on or off, the screen shows gray. When I turn it off, it turns back to normal black. It will go thru and display the menu prompts, but does not show what is being feed into the tv. Help!

You have a problem in the video circuit. Any video that comes into the set is not getting to the picture tube. The menus come from the system control microprocessor. This shows that the input at the picture tube itself is working. Also you system control is working. The signal would have to be traced through the set to find out where the loss is originating.

I'm having the same problem. It appears to be some sort of programming issue. Unplug the set for a few minutes, then go through the setup procedure when you plug it back in. This will work for a while, if anyone has a permanent solution please post it.

My old 32 inch rca f32665 stopped working as we were watching it. no picture or sound and there is a sound coming from the back where the power cord goes in that sounds exactly like a cricket only its a...

The usual cause is a shorted horizontal output transistor. The way this chassis is designed, the supply makes 140 volts which is always on and applied to the transistor. The heavy load on the power supply causes it to make that chirping sound as it keeps trying to start, then shuts down right away.

The h-out is Q14401, RCA part number 237470. A 2SC5148 can replace it.

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at

Problems With RCA Television (Gray Screen)

Your problem is the old rca tuner sheild repair thingy. Its a simple but tricky repair where the tuner grounds around the tuner sheild and under the bottom of the tuner sheild has to be resoldered. Most repair shops in the states that i know of charge like 65 to 125 .00 to do this simple repair. Now if you know how to solder you can get this reapir mod from sams photo facts and do it your self but its really an involved thing if you dont know what your doing as some of the serface mounted parts look like a spec of dirt and i've seen a few peeps clean off those specs and ruin the whole set. Best for you to take this set in for a repair. Good luck
