RCA 32V420T 32" TV

My television was working fine last night and this morning for an hour after us waking up. The television started turning itself on and off after that. I tried the power button and it will not turn the TV on. When the TV comes on I try to go through the menu and the TV shuts off. I did trouble shooting with the cable company to make sure it was not the cabe box and it isn't. I have come to the conclusion that it is however the TV and I would like to know how to fix it. I have not yet unplugged the TV and it continuosly goes on and off. I had volume when it was on this morning, now the volume is turned completly up and there is no sound. Please help.

RCA 32V434T TV turns itself off and on by itself. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

When your tv turns on by it self you prob have the alarm set. For the tv to turn like a clock would go off when u need to get up. You need to check the the sleep/ wake up timer to see if it is set.

RCA 32" keeps turning on/off on its own

The most common problem with shut down on this model is the HVT drifs. In short, you need to set the G2 to 290v, with no signal and a blue screen. If this is to + or - 5 volts set will shut down after 10 to 15 seconds. If this does fix your set, its a sign HVT is going out. I wouldn't advise repair of this set. Its not worth it.

Remote problems and now FPA locked

In the worse case:
It is very possible that the remote recieve on the set has gone defective. It is also possible that there is a fault with the processor in the set, and the remote signals are not being responded to.

As for your universal remote, I don't trust them.

Did you try changing the batteries in the remote? Make sure the new ones are actualy in good condition.
