Question about RCA F32632SB 32" TV

1 Answer

Lost channels 2 through 52

I think our Niece reconfigured our TV. We have an RCA F32632SB TV that was working fine until our played with the buttons on the front. The cable comes in via coax from a digital tuner on channel 3. Tried another TV and everthing works fine, so I am pretty sure that the cable box is fine. Routed the cable directly from the wall to the TV, bypassing the cable box, and ran the autoprogram and we only get channels 52 and above. Channels 50 and 51 don't have anything on them. Tried running the cable directly to another TV, bypassing the cable box, and all the channels are available. We tried unplugging it. Went into the menu under the setup tab and selected autoprogram, with the same problem. Any suggestions?

I think the low band (Channel 2-6)in your tuner is not working. This could be in the tuner itself or in the band switching circuits. Possibly she deleted the low channels or locked them out. Stargazer

Hour Glass picture on a RCA TV F32632SB

I looked up this model and found the following electolytic capacitors to be the most likely culprits within the pincushion circuit. Check these first. The starred one is the one I have replaced in the past to resolve this.

C4851 10ufd 50V
C4853 10ufd 63V
C4854 2.2ufd 100V
C4855 2.2ufd 50V
* C4862 100ufd 25V

Good luck,

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Hello neall,

It sounds like you may have a power supply problem- (HV Power supply). I must ask if you have sound or not? If you have sound it is the HV supply only if you do not have sound the Low Volt power supply and possibly the HV power supply/Horizontal section has a problem. I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop.

I hope this helps,

Thank You,

Scrolling Channels

You probably have a bad channel down switch on the TV. This is common if any kind of liquid spilled inside of the TV near the controls. The other possibility is just a stuck button on the control pad itself. Sometimes the plastic warps a bit causing to rub against the cabinet causing it to stick. Try moving the button and see if it has free movement.
