Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

RCA 32V420T (32 inch)

Hello, my tv is about a year and a half old. Since last night it's been turning on for a few seconds with sound, no picture, then a thin line appears in the middle, disappears, and the TV turns itself off. I've tried plugging and unplugging, plugging into a surge protector. Just not sure what's going on! Help!

Have thin line of picture on right side of screen, rest is blank. Sound is fine


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

The repair of this problem will be near to or exceed the cost to replace it with a new flat screen. With TV prices at an all time low due to slack demand it is not cost conscious to repair it.

if you can get another one for a reasonable i would certainly consider that. the cost to get these lcd's fixed sometimes is not worth it. you seem to have more than one problem with the set.
