Question about RCA 32V550T 32" TV

1 Answer

Control Panel The control panel on the top of the tv is going out. When you try pushing the buttons nothing happens. When you turn the tv on with the remote, the menu pops up as if the button was stuck. I have Direct Tv and every time I try to use my remote to change the channel, the guide to the tv pops up. Now the tv menu is stuck in spanish, and the volume is on mute. I took the control panel apart, and there is a chip inside of it, can I replace it?

Yes you can replace the chip, BUT, first try to clean the button contacts. I have to do that to my remotes, phones, and RCA TV (yes I have one too) etc.. around my house. Just needs a good cleaning. Don't forget to unplug the TV.

No response to any button on remote or tv except power button

Press the 'Favorite' button on the remote. You may have accidentally pressed it. It locks the channel. Pressing again unlocks.

Programming problem

a universal remote control is programmable without codes using this general process:
  • push and hold 3 sec the button set up
  • select the device to control (TV DVD etc)
The tv has to be ON at this step (use the power button in the tv front panel
  • use the remote control power button and try to get your tv pushing the button again and again and again
  • Caution! Go slow because when finally the tv turns on you have to push enter in the remote control to save this code that actually is the one the tv needs,

Ac/heating problem

Same problem for me. Local garage seems to think replacing the control module in the dash will solve the problem. I also have clicking sounds behind where the relay junction box is (under dash). My problem is intermitant so I'm also thinking that replacing a relay or two might also help.

cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210

The word "Factory" is in red at the top of my TV screen. I've already tried turning it off, unplugging it, and also pushing every buttong possible on the remote. How do I get "Factory" off?

You might try pushing two buttons a once. Like volume up&down or channel up&down. Do this from the control panel on the TV not the remote. I've seen this happen on some sets,but I'm not sure about your brand.
