Question about RCA F36685 36" TV

RCA F36685 No audio on cable channels

I have an RCA television which suddenly produced no sound. Actually I only have sound coming through one channel and static through the others. I get sound when playing video games. One channel warned that the television was set to SAP and offered advice how to change it, to no avail. All the channels are currently set to SAP and I cannot turn it off, even by following the instructions. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have an RCA 36"

Hi, in most of these RCA TV, we found a common problem with that strange sound.
You need electronics skills to solve this problem. The sound coming from the TV ( back cover), caused by a faulty transformer T14401 location number, part number 241319, also a transistor horizontal output is shorted need be replaced. location Q14401 part number, part number 237470. This is a difficult and you may have to find a tv shop and ask for a previous estimate of money. I hope all this clear in my explanation and if you have further questions, I'll be here to help.

TV channel sound from a different channel

I just unplugged the tv from the power source and disconnected the cable connection and then reconnected them back after sometime. The TV started auto programming after turning on and that resolved the problem.

I have dynex flat screen hdtv,need to hook up jvc dual dvd-vcr recorder to it need direction pls have no knowledge of hooking up this diagram would also be great

  • find the video input 1 in the back of the tv (this video connector yellow + audio red **audio right channel and white left channel) is known as female RCA conector)
  • get a set of rca wires **known as male RCA*** (yellow red and white)
  • find the RCA female conectors Yellow red and white in the DVD call it video (and audio) output
Connect sets accordingly the TV video input yellow conector with video output yellow with the set of wires RCA yellow. Do the same with audio.

  1. second part of this talking is to find and cable splitter (usually three output and one input
  2. find TWO coax cables (this cable is usually a black wire with a connector each side this fits perfectly in the antena input of the tv)
Now connect your cable into the splitter (input) and your two cables in each output, then send one of them into the TV antena conector and another to the DVD coax input.

To watch your TV only select any regualr channel as you do it.
And to record and actually see Your DVD/tape and what you record also. You have to select in your remote control the video 1

ones you get custome to this configuration you can record a channel and at the ssame time watch any second channel selected in the tv.

I hope was clear.

RCA television suddenly has problems with cable reception

You have a bad ground connection somewhere. Either the cable has a break in the ground side or there is a connection problem elsewhere. Try with another cable if possible.

Sound Fades, then TV shuts off then continues to recycle on & off

Sometims several capacitors start going bad giving you the audio problem, but I don't remember the set turning itself off. That could be a secondary problem around the flyback transformer which may have a bad solder connection. I would check that first. Otherwise, I would be tempted to go with HDTV.
