Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

TV/Remote Issues This is a weird situation. The only way I can turn the tv on is by touching the power button on the tv and clicking power on the rca universal remote. This also happens when I want to change the volume, change channels and change inputs. Never seen this before.

Odd problem alright. So you have to hold in the power button for the remote to work, and the power button won't turn the TV on by itself? Or am I misunderstanding. It sounds like the power switch relay is bad... and the board the receives messages from the remote is perhaps on the same circuit. The switch will need to be replaced. I wasn't able to locate parts online for this. RCA has a link to parts, but all they have is a replacement lamp. However, there is a service center locater link on RCA's page. http://direct.where2getit.com/cwc/apps/w2gi.php?client=rcathomson&template=searchretail_new Most places should be willing to sell you the parts you need, or get you in contact with those who do sell them. Or, you could just take it to them to be fixed.

To determine the source of your problem, follow these steps:
  1. Power the TV on if it is off.
  2. Unplug the TV from the wall outlet for 30 seconds, and then plug the TV back in.

      • If the TV powers off when you press the POWER button on the remote control turn the TV back on continue to Step 4.
      • If the TV does not powers off then there is a problem with the remote control. Click here to go to the Remote Control troubleshooting section of this guide.
    1. Press the POWER button on the TV.
      • If the TV powers off with the remote but does not power off with the power button on the TV there could be an issue with the touch sensor on the TV. Before setting your unit up for service try these two things.
        1. Try sliding your finger accross the power button.
        2. Have other people try using the touch buttons on the TV.
        3. If either of these two options work then there is not an issue with the touch sensor on the TV. There are many variable that can limit the conductivity of a persons fingers. The conductivity of your fingers might not be enough to easily control the touch sensor on the TV.
        4. If the TV does not power off when you press either the POWER button on the TV or on the remote control, then the TV will need to be serviced. Click the Create online service request button below to have the TV repaired.

Hi! Hope this will give hint... I understand some televisions nowadays are fully controlled using remote but there is always a standby power button for the television remote function. If the there is no power after turning on using the standby power button please check power cables, supplies and fuses. If the television has a standby power waiting the remote to act on but no response after pushing the remote's power button check the battery and its contact. Goodluck.

RCA model# F26071ES television set clicks on, then immediately off when using power button on TV or by using remote.


This should help you.. use the TV button on the remote instead of the power button. If the TV is working properly and the buttons aren't damaged this should do it.
I know mine clicks off as well.. unless I use the TV button to turn it on.

Freak accident, won't show 75% of channels now!


I lost the manual to this set, but last night I found the Menu button on the remote. I pressed it and then clicked SetUp. There was an option for Quick SetUp of Cable/Satellite. I clicked that and it was then able to find all my cable channels again. I still do not know how we messed it up by bumping the remote -- especially when it was turned 90 degrees away from the screen -- but this has restored it. Thanks.
