Question about RCA F35317 35" TV

1 Answer

Looks like a lightning bolt when I turn on the TV.

I have an RCA Model #F35317 Chassis #CTC203CA9. The power at my house flickered a few times during a storm 2 weeks ago. The following day I turned on the television and I had no picture but I had sound. I changed the input to the S-video input and the screen was still blank. I turned it off and unplugged it and then plugged it back in after a few minutes. When I turned on the television it looked like a lightning bolt shooting down the screen and crackling sound came from the back of the television. Any advice??? Is this something that I can look into myself?

Unfortunately, this is what we call in the industry total meltdown due to merging circuitry. you will have to replace the entire circuit arrangement in this set. the audio ic's are probably the only components that are still operational. this repair will cost quite a bit to be honest. you may be better off purchasing a new set. sorry for the bad news there.

Recently purchased a rca tv model F35317, parental code from previous owener locked need to bypass


If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television

simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls.

Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button, and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.
Hope this helps you out. Thanks

The TV was on when I lost power to the house during a lightning storm. When the power came back on, the TV would attempt to turn on, the light would flash, but it would not stay on. Any ideas? Its a $50...


By what you are stating it could be that the power supply board could have been burned on your tv because of the black out, plus if your tv was still on when the power came back on the suddent bust of power could have coused the power supply board to burn out among other parts on your tv.

Remove the Lamp and look for a white fog inside. It is bad if it looks that way.
If thats not it, Call a good TV Tech to troubleshoot the problem. Lightning can do about anything to electronics.

Tv won't come on


Typical reset sequence is: unplug the set, press the power button a few times ( Yes, with the set unplugged ). Then, hold the power button down and at the same time ( maybe with your other hand ) plug the set in. If that doesn't do it, there may be a button marked reset on the back of the set. If there was a lightning strike nearby, your set is probably toast. The antenna or cable brings it into the house.
