Question about RCA 32V550T 32" TV

1 Answer

Still posessed! turn on the TV and it will work just fine for about 15-20 mins.  Then I lose the picture, but it still has audio.  Then after about another 15-20 mins I lose the audio as well.  Any suggestions?  This TV is less than a year and a half old.  I had read on a blog or forum in the past regarding this problem and they stated it was some sort of "chip" that needed replacing.  I know that this is not much help.  I had done a Google search and found it.  I haven't found it since.

    I have a problem that is a little different than this one, but it sounds like maybe a chip replacement would be my solution also. What happens with my television is that it turns off by itself for one thing, also it activates the parental control and has put an x in the sap selection so when the NBA basetball playoff game came on last week, I got the Spanish feed and the game play by play was in Spanish. And then sometimes I have to reboot the cable stations again because the tv acts like it is brand new and doesn't have the channels on it that I have been using for 3 years. How would I know what chip to replace"? I would appreciate any help that you could give me on this complex problem, thanks for your time. Mike

These tv does have loose of audio problems im concern about looseing picture . Try unplugging tv for 5 minutes it will reset tv very common fix for audio. Tv that are less then a year old are sometimes covered under new warr call manufacture on that.
There is a microprocessor on these that lockup and when you unplug it. it resets it.

I have a tv shop and have helped customers get exchanges under a year especially if you complain

My Samsung TV doesn't show a picture, when there was a picture audio and remote not working. Which boards need replaced?


If there is no audio then most likely your main board. If your red power stand by light blinks less than 3 s then its the M/B. If its more than 3 s then its the P/B.

I lose the picture after 20 - 25 mins. I turn off the TV and turn it quickly back on and the picture works fine; then 10 - 15 mins goes by and I lose the picture again. I turn the TV off then quickly back...


it probablt needs power supply capacitors, if you can take it apart and inspect the power supply, the bad capacitors usually are expanded and have a bulge at the top, you would need to solder these parts in, so some skill is required.

Quasar TV sp 2724E Loses the picture


Sounds like a failed vertical amplifier circuit. This is normally primarily contained in an integrated circuit mounted on a heatsink.
There are other possibilities along the line but the one above is the most likely.
Now all you need is a TV repair shop that is still in buisness.

Your high voltage transformer is likely to be ready to go completely out. Thats the way these do. I have replaced many.

RCA 32V550T 32" TV Possessed


I am having the same problem with my RCA 32V550T. This has been the worst purchase I have ever made - it was an expensive TV at the time that I got it and it only worked for a few months. It may or may not come on. It may or may not have sound. It rarely works but If per chance it does come on it will work maybe from 15 mins to 2 hrs. depending on it's mood - yes I think it is possessed. It turns on and off at will. I keep it unplugged most of the time because I worry it may be a fire hazard. I have had it repaired but the problem persists. It's a useless but expensive heap of junk taking up space in my living room. I had a great RCA VCR that I bought many years ago but contemporary RCA products are not the quality they used to be - be smart and stay away from them.
