Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

Open Question

WE inherited a RCA 32" TV, probably 5-8 years old, no model number on front or back (AV jacks on side and in back)...it will not respond to remote or manual use of buttons to turn on/off, and just rolls through the channels. If we press and hold down 'menu' it stops on that channel. To turn it off, we unplug it. Any advice?

SOURCE: TV (RCA model F32705) stuck on one channel

Usually the fix for that on a RCA or GE TV is to go into the menu (the button in on the front of the TV) and find channel settings and let the TV autoprogram itself. This should fix the issue.

SOURCE: menu wont work, continuos channel search

Usually, this means that something has spilled into the front of the set and has contaminated the pushbuttons. If one of the channel pushbuttons has fluid in it, the set will just sit there searching for channels and will not respond to any other commands. The computer thinks you are pushing the channel button and responds accordingly. When you push another button the computer does nothing because it thinks that you are pressing 2 buttons at the same time. The board should be cleaned and any contaminated pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.

SOURCE: can't get TV onto the AUX channel

You can purchase an RCA universal remote that will let you access the A-V inputs. These only cost about $10.00 or so. Stargazer

SOURCE: Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Can't hook vcr to tv


on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports.
The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups.
These ports use what is called an RCA type connection.
Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.

now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.

Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.

last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to.
its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...

good luck

Have inherited RCA television with AV input on back, but remote and using buttons on TV allow only channels 4 and 7 to be be seen. How do you make televsion recognize AV input from back? RCA model F20600...


Bring up your video menu, make sure the cable/antenna mode is set correctly. Also do channel search/ auto program. If your AV is operating a DVD player etc., there should be a button to switch from TV to AV. If you are trying to input Cable/Antenna to AV jack you may have it plugged into wrong jack, it should go into 'antenna/cable in' jack. Hope this helps.

Universal remote works for basics but won't change input


Rich,

good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?

Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode

cheers,
mark

Unlock JVC tv model number AV-32320


What do you mean by locked out? If you are talking about not being able to turn on the power without the remote hold down the power button on the tv itself for 5 seconds to turn it on. other than that you probably should get a universal remote.

Front Panelbuttons


You probably should replace the button matrix. They are usually less than $20. You do have to take off the back of the set ( makes sure its unplugged) It's also possible that the switch has collapsed, whoch can be replaced but needs some soldering skill. Google RCA parts or try herman electronics. You will need your model number to get the correct parts.
