Re: TV Turns Itself Off. What would I have to do to fix...

That set is a CTC197 chassis with a common problem - flyback or more commonly referred to as the FBT...
The FBT is a high voltage transformer which delivers a great deal of voltage to the crt to light the tube. The FBT is RCA p/n# 237502 and a ring test can confirm its failure. Another shortcut technicians use is to unsolder the collector of the HOT and power the set. If it powers with up and has audio you're in business, just replace the FBT and it's recommended to replace R14704 its an 82k ohm- 1/2w resistor and C14710 a .01/1kv cap as well. I believe if you order these as a kit, (ie: original RCA FBT), the two other parts are included - but ask to make sure.
You might also check for continuity across E & B of the HOT with a multi-meter while you're in there and if you get any resistance at all the HOT is shorted also... Or for simple reliability just replace it anyway.
Hope this helps!

My tv has a problem staying on and sometimes it turns it self off and turns it self back on and has become more frequent with turning it self off

Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in.
Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on/off as well. If that device also turns on/off by itself, it could be a faulty outlet.

Tv turns on every night at 7:00 and turns off at 8:00 by itself. If we are already watching tv it defaults to a specific channel at 7:00 pm automatically.

Dear customer,                Check you tv's sleep timer and scheduler settings and disable them. thank you.

Sounds like the Startup Relay is dropping out, you will need to replace it.

RCA 32V434T TV turns itself off and on by itself. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

When your tv turns on by it self you prob have the alarm set. For the tv to turn like a clock would go off when u need to get up. You need to check the the sleep/ wake up timer to see if it is set.

TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all

As far as fixing goes, you might as well get a new TV... Unless its a LARGE EXPENSIVE HOLY $%^# TV, It will cost more to fix, than to just buy a new one, unless its under warranty, which being an older model as that (or so im reading) It may not be covered.

Try unplugging the TV, and while unplugged, hold down the power button for a full minute (yes, with the plug NOT in the wall) after a minute, plug it back in, and try. Its a hard reset. If it still does not work, and you've tried different outlets, It's probably a repair issue, and you'll need to get someone to fix it, or just junk it :-/
