Repair manual for 32 inch led/lcd RCA

These are not available. If you want a repair you will need to go to one of the RCA authorised repairers.

Basically I would toss it and get something else because it is not worth repairing IMHO.

(Just a tip. Don't by this brand again. They are notoriously unreliable. Buy Panasonic and you will get many years of trouble free use. With electronics you usually get what you pay for).

I have a 10 yr old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA 32" Flat

Hello jorge and welcome to FixYa. With your particular model of television six blinks mean a Horizontal Drive Failure has occurred. If you have any television repair experience you could try checking the jungle for loose or possibly bad soldering. In some case the jungle IC was found to be defective on this model as well. You should also inspect the horizontal drive transformer windings if at all possible. If you are unable to repair this yourself I would personally say to you no it is not worth the cost to repair it as purchasing a new television would probaly be a more prudent decision. I hope you found this helpful and thank you for visiting FixYa.

Inside screen broke,is it a big job and whats the cost for a screen...42" plasma

It costs more to replace the screen than it does to buy a new one. It will require a complete dissassembly of the tv to replace the screen. Not worth it.

The LCD display is bad. If it is past warranty it is time to buy a new monitor. You have a block of pixels that have failed.

32" LCD HDTV Sceptre model x32, blue led but no pic or sound !

Having the same problem. Took it to a repair shop and they say it is some capacitors and the power supply... Which seems kinda hinky to me... I would think one or the other would be the problem, not both at the same time.

I know it seems like it is a rip off but the diagnoses is probably right. It may well be caused by the digital controller that is mounted to the LCD Panel and is not sold separately so you need to replace the entire Panel whether the Panel it- self is bad or not. Cost of the LCD Panels are expensive and get much more expensive as the size of the screen gets larger. Sorry of the bad news.

Unfortunately in most cases the cost to repair the tv is not worth it. The replacement panel plus the labor in most cases cost's more than what the tv cost you to buy. You can call Sony if you are intrested in the cost of the panel. 1-800-222-7669

Good Luck
