This is weak power distribution throughout the unit. you wil need to test the power supply board for blown capacitors and resistors as well. replace this vital board if you notice any swollen or disscolored componets.

TV Flashing from Channel to Channel Non-Stop. Problem with the RCA F32689 32" TV My TV started jumping from channel to channel non-stop. There's no picture or sound - only channel numbers changing...

If still under guarantee take it back.
If not this sounds like a workshop job. If more than five years old (the TV, not you!) and you can afford it, junk this set and get a new one.

Tv turns off immediately after i try to turn it on

I know this set--worked on a lot of them when they were first new---THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM is the high voltage transformer fails--usually a dead set.

As you look from the back of the set it is a tan colored part about the size of your fist (located to the right side of the board on the far left--it has a large red wire coming out of the top of it)--if you hear a squeeking noise or not--it is the most common part to fail in this set.....RCA PART NUMBER IS : 239111---PART is no longer available from RCA but if you Google it on the internet---there are several places that have a replacement part for less than 15 dollars---

The way I used to attack this was to unsolder the transformer and try to turn set on--if it comes on it will not have a picture but if it does not shut down--you know either the transformer is bad or something right around it---note---I have seen over 100 of these sets with this part bad--number one part to fail in this set.

Let me know if you need any help or assistance.

Regards, SD TECH
