Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

RCA Model #32V434T no sound/picture

Problem: No picture, no sound
Background: TV purchased early 2006 (manufactured feb 06) No problems till last week, TV was on. Sound/picture disappeared. Red power light remained illuminated. Tried to turn off tv, panel button AND remote button failed to turn it off. I unplugged the TV, plugged it back in and pressed the power button. RED power light flashes 25 times, goes steady, no pic/no sound. Same result with front panel and remote buttons. Checked fuses w/neg blown. No abnormalities previous to this episode. Noticed other problems similiar but didn't quite seem the same as mine. Apologies if this is a repost though.

    On Sun. Jan. 27, 2008 RCA Model #32V434T lost picture and sound exactly as ak-medics post. Front panel buttons don't respond. Unplugged from wall to turn off. After plugging the unit back in and pressing the power button the unit also flashed it's red light a few times but still no response, nothing but black screen. Please help me determine if it can be fixed.

    Same problem.....Purchased TV in mid February from Wal-Mart. Sticker on back of TV said manufactured in Feb 06. While watching TV last week the picture and sound just went off. Power light was still on and I had to unplug to get it to turn off. When I plugged back in I heard a high pitched beep and a click from the back of the TV. When I pushed the power button the light flashes about 20 times and then nothing.

    My tv is stuck on. Had to unplug it to turn off. I can't see that the front panel is jammed but tried to unstick any buttons. Volume is stuck at 100 and channels keep scrolling.

    EXACTLY the same problem. Purchased in 2006 from Wal-mart. Last week, daughter was watching t.v. laying on the sofa and it just went out. We unplugged overnight. Plugged back in the next morning and it flashed 25 times and then went solid. What could it be?????

This is very possibly a power surge, can you tell me how many times the light blinks, you probably have a bad power board now if you had a power surge.

My 32v434t television.

The TV was making the clicking noise and not turning on because an internal error was being detected.
Now things had got worse , and something had blown inside the TV.
The burning smell and high pitched noise is coming either from Flyback transformer or PSU board. Repair is a delicate matter and must be done by a technician.

I had this problem once before and it turned out to be the front keypad. Last time I tried to purchase one it was no longer available. Even when it was the wires going to it had to be reversed.

Tv no pic or sound

If you hear the high voltage try to come up and set shuts down in 2 secs it could be your FBT also these sets have alot of poor connections chassis should be resolder.

This model has a history of being plaged with bad solder connections, and that may be your problem still today. If your state has "lemon laws" you might want to pursue that venue if contacting RCA directly doesn't produce results. RCA's have been my bread and butter for at least the last 12 or so years in the service business but I would not buy one today for myself.
