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 it setup on my Samsung TV with RCA cables, but no sound comes out

Why do you need to use RCA cables as a TV will produce sound through the internal speakers without any cables required.

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.

I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

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.

HDMI Cable - No Sound L42WD22 RCA Flat Panel TV

No sound and a digital picture. i will assume you have no signal on analog rf cable. Thomson(RCA) have been having problem with these sets. The trouble stems from the digital cuircit board. We see alot of these. You used to get the digital board.. they are not availble.. so rca found the component on these that fail.. A VERY SMALL surface mounted fuse. With a lighted magnifer and some fine tip twezzers. we replace these fuses on these boards. Do you have any soldering experence..

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.
