Question about RCA F32649 32" TV

1 Answer

TV will not come on and if it does it just cycles through the channels...

The TV will not come on. With the remote control I can hear it click on but immediately it clicks off. The buttons on the front panel don't work at all. I took out the circuit board that has the micro switches on it and checked them out with an ohmmeter and all of them work. Sometimes I can get the TV to turn on but then the channels just keep cycling through one after the other. It will not stay on any one channel.

I put the TV in my garage (unplugged) for about a week then tried it again and it worked perfectly for about two weeks then the same problem again. I don't know what to do to fix this thing and I can not find any repair places in my metro area.

    how can I bypass the tuner? It won't allow me to change to the other inputs. If I try to switch to the other inputs it immediately switches back to channels and cycles. That also does not solve the problem of it not staying on. It does not appear to be a tuner issue but rather a programming problem.

If tuner channels keep cycling,why not by-pass the problem?
Use audio / video inputs as source from box or VCR tuner....

    Sorry my suggestion did not help .....I agree that you

    do not primarily have a tuner issue. Possibly a power supply

    problem affecting common circuits.....leaky regulator or diode or

    bad electrolytic capacitor........Using schematic, check all power

    supply source voltages = if all are good, suspect bad solder

    connect since set works sometimes.................Last suspect is

    bad microprocessor IC or a part in it's circuit..................T.

Can set up th remote control for this tv with the direct tv cable remote

Here's how to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote

1.Make sure your TV is turned on.

2.Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".

3.Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.

4.While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.

5.Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.

5b. Press 1 again (it will flash twice again), then you press the power on button at the very top right.

6.Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.

*If you hit channel up very fast, you risk going past the code. Pressing channel down will back it up. I alway hit channel up very fast till the tv turns off, then back it up slowly till it comes back on.

7.When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.

*Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be compatible with our remote control.

I have a dish network remote control that I am trying to use to get to my video 1 or video 2 channels on my Sylvania 6420FF tv. The Sylvania remote is dead to the world and I need the Dish remote to get to...

You will need to by a universal remote in most circumstances as the Dish remote may not cycle through the inputs on your tv. You can try the recovery button on the remote it will have a small R on it. Press it many times to se if it it set to cycle through the inputs. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Magnasonic MCT5555 TV remote control will cycle through 02 - 32 but when trying to go above 32 it returns to 02. I can manually select any number above 32 say 43, 55 etc. but will not cycle up on remote....

Steve from Magnasonic 800 663 5854 solved the problem. It must have been finger problems - somehow someone programmed the remote unintentionally. Steve had me turn on the TV and press 02 | RESET | AUTO -- the tv cycled through all the channels -- and that cured the problem.

InputChannel without remote

Yes and no depends on the TV if you have a menu button press it and go to autoprogram and let it find all the channels then press channel down until you get to channel 1 then press it again and it should start cycling through aux inputs.sometimes TVs dont have a menu button and this is not possible.try simply pressing channel down until you get to channel 1 then maybe it will cycle through your inputs.Please rate me if this helps.
