Rca 32v432t tv plays,turnsoff,turnson, and stays in autochannel search mode

your going to need to do a resolder of dry looking solder jobs and or poor solder jobs
this could also be your front control board , try disconnecting it and see if the tv stays on
it is possible that the sensor has gone bad or the crystal needs to be replace or worse the EEPROM
my rca 27 in was doing the same thing , i resoldered the board and it worked great for 7 months
so do a resolder of all suspicious solder and heated components
then let me know what happens
also what is your model # for your rca tv ?
also one of rca's kits for repair is some solder and paste , so that should tell you something in its self about rca repairs ( the solder with the paste is supposed to make it handel heat better )
please give a fixya rating so that if you need more help in your tv , I can continue to help you further , thanks

RCA 32" wont turn on

It sounds like you may have a bad Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT) and/or a bad Flyback Transformer. The set is trying to start as indicated by the flashing light, but an internal fault is shutting it down right away. It could also be the Power Supply circuit. A 32in. set is not cheap to replace so it may be worth finding a repair technitian and at least getting a quote. The Flyback is the most expensive part, the others are minimal. If it is one of the above problems it could easily be repaired by a qualified technitian.
