Check to see if you have B+ to the horz.output transistor.
also you may have bad solder connections on the countdown osc. ceramic resonator.

No picture but has sound

Coil L14401 is not making a good ground. Remove him carefully, scrape the ends clean and the board where he was removed. Now reinsert and resolder this little guy,and Bingo you have your TV back. This is a common problem with your TV! Thanks for asking!

"snow sound" on rca tv, perfect picture

Although your picture is perfect, I would think the fine tuning is slightly off. This can also be to do with the cable box frequency setting. Call out the cable people & get them to check the box & the setting up to the TV.

No User Guide for my RCA 20F424T--Where can I get it???????

Go to the RCA website and select televisions. Under 'Support' select 'Product Downloads', and follow screen instructions. I just did it for my model F27442, and it's free. So don't fall for those websites who want to charge you for a manual, all they're giving you is exactly is what most manufactures websites are offering for free.
