Question about Quasar SP-3233 TV

1 Answer

Sometimes no picture on RCA tv

Sometimes my standard 31" RCA tv has a black screen when turned on.  Then the picture appears after a few minutes and is fine for the rest of the day.  Other times the picture is fine when the tv is turned on.  Sometimes the picture is fine and goes black for 5 minutes or so, then comes back on.  What's going on?  Thanks.

My rca truflat tv will get a black box pop up on the screen. It covers most of the picture. Sometimes there will be text in the box. If I adjust the volume it will disappear for a few seconds then come...

It is a Text or Description box that operates like Closed Captions. Cycle through the options by pressing the Caption button on the remote or go to the Caption menu and turn it off.

Unwanted rectangular black area appears on screen blocking 40% of picture

This could be the result of a partly shorted vertical winding on the deflection yoak.Since the line is on an angle and not straight across.

Scattered black lines appear then screen gos black, but still have good volume

Hello 4fiddy,

You have actually diagnosed your own problem, Let me explain; the line "I can slap the left side of the tv and picture will almost always come back on" This indicate some form of poor connection (cold solder joint). If you have a soldering iron, solder (circuit type not pipe type), and a multimeter. Use the soldering iron and solder to redo the cold solder joints , and then test it (the connection) with the multimeter.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem

This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

The set you have has a bad tuner assembly. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. Good Luck
