Question about RCA Televison & Video

Open Question

RCA ColorTrak TV turns on and off on its own.

I have an RCA ColorTrak TV. It was made between 1980-1985, but i am not sure, because someone ripped of the paper that said when exactly it was made. We had it in storing for a while and then our old TV died, so we used the RCA, which worked fine for a few months. Then it started tot urn off on its own, did not think too much about it as we were going to bed anyways and thought someone had shut it off. But then that night it turned on by itself. Then off again and on again. So I unplugged it.We have since built a bigger house on our property, ( Live on a ranch)and have aquired several TVs since then, all pre-2000 and all work great. Now we are fixing up our old house and I hate to see that TV sitting there, when I know it can be fixed, but I don't know how.
I would appreciate any help!

SOURCE: Toshiba TV Keeps shutting itself Off.

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

SOURCE: Dryer turns itself on & beeps, then off again

aye, see if you can enter the diagnosis mode. What we are looking for is the F-02 code. This will flash when there is a stuck button or user interface problem and only displayed in the test mode. With the unit plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any button except stop. Press for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press for 3 seconds, release for 3 secnds and press for 3 seconds. If you did it right 88 should appear. Press the same button again and if there is a error, it should show up. If no error code shows, open the consol and check the p-5 connector. This will be the interface ribbon to the board. Reseat it and see if the problem stops. Catriver

SOURCE: TV Turns off and on

How long since the last time the bulb was replaced? It sounds like the bulb is overheating and triggering a safety shutdown.

It's probably in need of nothing more than a good cleaning (open it up, clean off the boards with a can of air) and *may* be time to replace the bulb.

SOURCE: TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all

As far as fixing goes, you might as well get a new TV... Unless its a LARGE EXPENSIVE HOLY $%^# TV, It will cost more to fix, than to just buy a new one, unless its under warranty, which being an older model as that (or so im reading) It may not be covered.

Try unplugging the TV, and while unplugged, hold down the power button for a full minute (yes, with the plug NOT in the wall) after a minute, plug it back in, and try. Its a hard reset. If it still does not work, and you've tried different outlets, It's probably a repair issue, and you'll need to get someone to fix it, or just junk it :-/

Rca remote tv code


I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a RCA TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0047, 0090, 0679. I can not guarantee that these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
