Problem fixed. I unplugged the TV for 20+ seconds, then before plugging it back in, I shorted ac plug prongs together with a metal key to ensure complete discharge. Plugged TV back in and used procedure to reset password WITH ONE CHANGE TO THE PROCEDURE.

With TV turned OFF press and hold <CLEAR> button on the remote while pressing <VOLUME DOWN> button on the TV, hold until TV turns on. When the menu appears DO NOT RESET THE PARENTAL CONTROL CODE as the user guide instructs. When my menu appeared it was in the SETUP screen on the LANGUAGE setting. It was set to SPANISH, using the remote I navigated to ENGLISH. Then using the remote I navigated up to GO BACK. Then I navigated to EXIT and hit <OK> button on the remote. All was back to normal.

You need the factory remote only for this model of set!

Contact the service rep for your set and order a new remote.

As for the service mode, most RCA sets require an external service interface.

In many models of sets, the results and commands are in HEX. You will need the service manuals, hardware interface, and instrumentation to do proper setups and adjustments.

As for accuracy of adjustments, from factory these sets were very accurate. If there are changes, this is due to failing parts, and not from adjustments going out. The setups are all uPC controled and are exact. The set should be serviced to make it work properly, and not adjusted to offset faults.

This set is not digital tuning and you would need a converter for off-the-air reception. You can get full specs and manual downloads from RCA's site:

There could be several things that can cause this: 1. There are no analog channels in your area. 2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc). 3. The TV tuner is defective Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

Rca turns itself off and on and scans thru all the channels


I have an easier solution, First I want to thank those who posted the solution that the problem is on the small switch board mounted right behind the switches under the picture tube. I figured that might be where the problem was but it's better to to see it confirmed. I thought the problem was more complex like maybe an IC chip got zapped or something but there are none on that board. Only 6 switches, the infared sensor, 1 capacitor and some resistors. I am convinced that in my case at least the problem is caused by humidity. It happened last year constantly durring humid weather in the summer and only a couple of times over the winter when the air is dry and cooler. I did figure an easier way to disconnect all the switches without unsoldering. After you remove the board, flip it over to the solder side and see where the wires connect. You will see them labled GND - KEY - +5 v - LED and IR. The one you want is labled KEY. You will see on the other side this wire is second from the end . Just separate the wires a bit and cut it. That's it. Just be sure it is the one marked KEY. This wire goes thru a series of resistors and the switches and nothing else. Just cut that one wire and put a piece of tape over the cut ends and thats it. it's a lot easier then unsoldering all 6 switches. And if you do decide at some point later to replace the switches, it's easy to resolder the wires and tape it. I did it this way and my TV is working perfect. I was done in ten minutes. You can only control the TV with the remote but so what, thats all we use 95% of the time anyway. I hope this helped you.

Rca 32v432t tv plays,turnsoff,turnson, and stays in autochannel search mode


your going to need to do a resolder of dry looking solder jobs and or poor solder jobs
this could also be your front control board , try disconnecting it and see if the tv stays on
it is possible that the sensor has gone bad or the crystal needs to be replace or worse the EEPROM
my rca 27 in was doing the same thing , i resoldered the board and it worked great for 7 months
so do a resolder of all suspicious solder and heated components
then let me know what happens
also what is your model # for your rca tv ?
also one of rca's kits for repair is some solder and paste , so that should tell you something in its self about rca repairs ( the solder with the paste is supposed to make it handel heat better )
please give a fixya rating so that if you need more help in your tv , I can continue to help you further , thanks

RCA 32V432T television ,Turns on and off on its own and runs through channels continuously


The problem is most DEFFINATELY the control board behind the user buttons.
You have 3 options to fix this...
1. Replace the new board completely (no garuntee your getting a "new" part).
2. Replace the tack switches (requires soldering and patients [alot of them]).
3. Remove the board and snip the one wire marked "Key". I didn't snip it so much as correctly pulled the wire out of the plug itself. By removing that one wire from the board you disable just the buttons. You still have complete use of the remote. Who the heck walks over to the TV these days anyway!?!?
