Question about RCA F32649 32" TV

1 Answer

Start up problem

I have a problem when the television is turned on. It seems like it is working okay, than all of a sudden the picture will go out, no picture just noise, and then comes back again. This will go on for a few minutes until the TV warms up and after that nothing happens. Sometimes it will stay out just for a second and sometimes it will stay out for a period of time. It eventually will be okay.

    No problem with TV for 5 years. A year ago the screen began going dark for 20 seconds to up to 15 minutes, then the picture would come back. 2nd week of Jan. 2008, the screen went dark & has remained dark ever since. I am not connected to any converter box, just the cable from the street.

    sometimes picture is perfect, sometimes it is snow for a minute or an hour. Is it a tuner problem?

Your TV chassis no doubt has bad solder connections = chassis
must be pulled, carefully soldered, re-installed..........T.

You have a source box problem = contact signal provider to reset or refresh set-top box..............T.

Audio quit working, what could be wrong?

If muting is not on, and your volume control is at a reasonable level, then something has gone wrong with the audio portion of your television.

Just to be on the safe side check all of your audio settings - on some sets there is a setting for turning off the internal speakers of set - check for that also.

My TV still turns on and off, but there's no picture or sound. How do I fix it?

The modern TV has two power supply sections. The first is a low voltage +_5 V, very low energy consumption, to keep the remote control functions live. The main power supply seemed to have failed and could be very difficult to fix as it is a energy efficient switch mode supply. Normally the switching transistor or MOSFET fails first and the blows a fuse. Depending on the root cause, replacing these could restore its function.

Vaio LCD problem

Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

This tv will not power on at all. It suddenly stopped working and now when I push power on unit or on remote nothing happens. No Picture, No Sound, no lights on panel, NOTHING?

You might need an assistance of an expert that has the right tool to check the components. Here are the things that you need to check:

Check the DM board - if the DM board seems to be okay
then, check the power supply board. One of these two boards is defective.

Have a great day!
