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.

Re: Still posessed!

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

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.

Hi doncat01,

Many stations broadcast seperate audio channels to allow commentary or alternate languages to be heard if desired. If this setting has been altered in your television, it would explain why this happens on schedule, as it would be associated with the programming at that time. I recommend navigating your audio settings and looking for "SAP." If this is selected, turn it back to "Stereo," "Mono," or whatever other option is applicable to your audio setup.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
