Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

Lost Station Hello, my name is Allen, and I have an RCA F38310 that I've had for about five years. In the past week or so, I 've noticed that I can no long tune in to my local PBS affiliate station. The analog station is number 13, with the digital being 14. If I enter 13-1, the TV jumps to 13. If I enter 14, the set displays a "weak signal" message. I fired up my PC, which has a HDTV tuner card. The digital station came right up! I also have a portable tv that has a digital tuner, and it was able to tune in to the digital station too. I went through the manual, and checked everything with a fine tooth comb. I'm stumped. Can you offer any ideas or suggestions? Funny, all of the other stations come in with no problems at all, just this one station. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hello - I've had my SKYFi2 receiver for about 4 1/2 years. For the past 6 months it cuts in and out, as in, plays the station that I'm on, then it stops and just says "antenna". ...

Hi Kathy,

It sounds like its the antenna, although it could be the docking station itself, or even the receiver. The best way to narrow it down is by testing against other equipment (if you happen to have other docking stations and or antennas) If it produces the same result you know its the radio. If you swap antennas and it works, obviously the antenna; and the same goes for the docking station. You can find replacements at

No picture/no sound. fan working

I have done some research and found a notorious cap and diode problem with this set. The two 4700uf caps (C14113 and C14115) on the DM1 power board (the board to the left of the sat. box when you look at the set from the back) are under rated and will eventually fail. When these caps fail they tend to take out diode CR14105. This may be your problem. If it is, you can replace the caps with 4700uf 25V 105c and the same as original diode.

Bad diode.

It seems that the number provided "CR14710" is the number near the part on the board. Are you sure this is the part number or rather, is it the part's schematic reference? I interpret "CR14710" as Control Rectifier 14710 that can be found on a schematic. I say this because you also said "a badly burned diode" and usually the part number becomes illegible from this.

Press menu on the remote. Press the cursor up or down button untill the word CC is highlighted. Press the cursor right button to select Closed Caption 1. You will likely have to do this with the original remote. A universal remote may not allow you to do this.
