Question about RCA 14F512T 14" TV

1 Answer

Turns on and off at all times of the day and night

All night long this TV has started turning on and off. I have had to unplug it. When I plug it back in, in the morning I can watch sometimes and sometimes it turns off. It will turn on and off all in a matter of 60 seconds, over and over. The only way to turn it off for good is unplug. i'm having the same issue. Tv keeps scanning channels, doesn't respond to remote. deff should be a recall.

Changed the light bulb and my TV still will not come on. We have volume, but no picture.


Try unplugging the HDMI cable. Turn off the sources (complete power cycle by unplugging all from the wall and the equipment if possible). Turn on monitor and then plug in all the rest.

  1. If the TV has a timer option, ensure it is disabled.

  4. Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.

TV TURNS ON BY ITSELF IN MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT HELP


If you have eliminated the obvious things the tv must have a fault...

The obvious things - a night prowler with a remote, a cat walking across your remote, a ghost that likes to watch tv, somebody sleepwalking...

It is possible the infra red signal needed to switch on the tv is not coming from your remote. You can test this by removing the batteries or taking the remote to bed with you. If the tv still turns on then tape over the infra red receiver on the tv to eliminate the chance of some stray infra red beam from elsewhere being the culprit. If that stops the tv turning on you need heavier curtains or blinds or the tv moving perhaps, but if the tv still switches on it has a fault.

There is another thought. Digital TVs and digiboxes are often programmed to wake up periodically to check for software updates. Mine wakes up at 3am but it only checks for software updates and doesn't switch on the tv, but maybe this is what your tv is doing.

A further thought - a tv often has the functions of an alarm clock. They have a sleep function so they can switch themselves to standby after you have fallen asleep and then can wake you in the morning. Perhaps the alarm has been inadvertantly set for 2am?

These days it is rather anti-social to leave any appliance on standby. Rather than unplugging the set every night and worrying about the kids, why not arrange for the tv to be plugged in to a switched outlet so the kids can switch it on or alternatively use a cheap plug-in timeswitch to prevent the set switching on in the wee small hours...
