Rca led32b30rq pictures flickers

This is the common problem with this model of RCA TV, the problem is not defective LED strips, but the power supply.

You may purchase a power supply on the net, but you can't guaranty that it is a good one.

This is the trick to make this TV work:

On the power supply, locate the R410 100K resister, solder a 220K/0.125W resistor in parallel with it, this will race up the oscillation frequency of the back light power supply circuit & make the voltage stable.

It is not a proper service procedure, but it works for us.

My problem is that the tv when turned on starts to flicker on an off very fast then goes black. I have no control of the volume no channel change nothing. Then in about ten minutes it start to work normal....

Hi Robin,

This is an indication of out-of-regulation in the power supply section. This is caused by leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor in that section. It will dropped the supply from normal voltage and will disable the unit. First stage of symptoms warm-up will make itself stable but the it will get worst until the unit will not even power up. Sometimes it has a bulged/dome at the top but not all, it is better that you have acapacitor checker/tester to determine its condition. Your unit will back to normal again if the leaky/dried capacitor is isolated. See sample picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor below.


Click this LINK for more info regarding electrolytic capacitors.

Also check if your unit is under warranty /extended warranty, avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free. Don't open the back panel, this will void the warranty.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

Sounds like you have an LCD tv with backlight problems. Check power board for domed capacitors and replace them. next check connections on the inverter boards. they are on the sides or just one side. Becareful there is high voltage output from these boards. If the cable from inverter board is not good to the screen you can get a strobing. the inverter boards may need replaced. or cales to screen may be bad. The panel also could be bad.

Olevia 242T 42" LCD HDTV - Suddenly No Picture, Nothing Works

 I heard they were restructuring their company or something.
There has been a change ownership from Syntax-Brillian to Olevia International Group.
Details of Olevia brand  
Unfortunately for all of us (we have 747i) service seems very poor and the failure mode you describe doesn't give me any clues despite 40+ years of service experience.
Ours is still 100% but I now suspect our trouble will come.
