Problem with RCA MM36110

My tv shuts off by itself after about 20 minutes then turns back on. If you put a blowing on the back of it then its fine.

    This is Ford man again, I forgot to put the word fan before blowing in my problem. If you use a fan the tv is fine. But if not it seems like it overheats. I welcome any comments.

Check on your deflection board for open capacitors Green & Gold writing cp150 location number 2200uf 16 v and two 220uf 35 volts.

Okay there is something wroung with the frount panel there may be debris in where the button is depressed or seomthing is depressing the button or it may be just going out on you.

1. take off the frount cover and examine the channel up and down make sure its clean and there are no debris.
2. if that does not work replace the controller board aroun $65 bucks.

I do not know your zip code but you can give these folks a shot you can call and ask how much it would cost to replace this controller even though they might not work in your area they still can give you a price.


Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

SOURCE: RCA 32V434T TV Turns itself on and off, changes

I had the same problem. Got it to stay on by unplugging the front button pc board while I researched the issue. It seems that the switches on said pc board begin to "leak resistance" and cause all kinds of problems like on/off, color maxes out, as well as other crazy stuff. After calling RCA and getting no help I decided to remove those seven micro-switches off of the board and, wouldn't you know! Everything is ok with the exception of not being able to controll the tv from the tv itself. Small sacrifice for a free fix. All tv functions work from the remote. Again, a small sacrifice for a free fix! Just be careful when poking around inside, high-voltage and stuff.

SOURCE: rca turns itself off and on and scans thru all the channels

I have an easier solution, First I want to thank those who posted the solution that the problem is on the small switch board mounted right behind the switches under the picture tube. I figured that might be where the problem was but it's better to to see it confirmed. I thought the problem was more complex like maybe an IC chip got zapped or something but there are none on that board. Only 6 switches, the infared sensor, 1 capacitor and some resistors. I am convinced that in my case at least the problem is caused by humidity. It happened last year constantly durring humid weather in the summer and only a couple of times over the winter when the air is dry and cooler. I did figure an easier way to disconnect all the switches without unsoldering. After you remove the board, flip it over to the solder side and see where the wires connect. You will see them labled GND - KEY - +5 v - LED and IR. The one you want is labled KEY. You will see on the other side this wire is second from the end . Just separate the wires a bit and cut it. That's it. Just be sure it is the one marked KEY. This wire goes thru a series of resistors and the switches and nothing else. Just cut that one wire and put a piece of tape over the cut ends and thats it. it's a lot easier then unsoldering all 6 switches. And if you do decide at some point later to replace the switches, it's easy to resolder the wires and tape it. I did it this way and my TV is working perfect. I was done in ten minutes. You can only control the TV with the remote but so what, thats all we use 95% of the time anyway. I hope this helped you.

We have the RCA HD52w59 projection tv. The tv shuts itself off at different intervals. It takes approximately 1 minute to be able to turn the power button back on, however, I have to do that many times...

A problem in the deflection board. Could be a Cap. Resoldering the deflection board may take care of the problem. You need to call a TV man to do this kind of work.

Best of luck

I had the same problem happen this afternoon, so I took it apart, and the source of the problem is the key controller panel (behind the buttons). It's held in place by 2 screws, if you take the case apart, which is literally only 15 or 20 screws, and then loosen the 2 screws holding the key controller panel on, and then use a small screwdriver to space it out from the button caps. Tighten the screws, and put it back together. Just be careful not to let it go too far to the other side, or you'll have a problem with the menu going on and off at random, which is just as annoying.
