Question about RCA F32676SB 32" TV

Open Question

Rca scenium 62'' hd projection tv

I bought a plasma,had the rca unplugged for about 2 months, and was going to give it away. i turned it on and it comes on fine for about 5 mins, then it will power off and on by itself 2 times, then flash error code 15. it was working fine before i put it away. could it be one of those wonderful cold solder joints rca is known for, or a bad prom?

when id is on i just have a 1080i input on comp1, and all menus and the built in dvd player work fine. pix look just as good as before, with no odd noises. it just wont stal on. i don't know if these tv's have an automatic shutdown that i can bypass. atlease if there is and smoke comes out of it, i'll know where the problem is lol

SOURCE: RCA 27r410t 27" won't turn on,just makes high pitch noise

If you are fimniliar with TV fixing you should check its secondary supply may be the H out is short or some thing short there if you have schimatic its much easier to rectify.

that high pitch is comming from the flyback replace the flyback and the HOT.and you will restore back the life of your tv.good luck.

SOURCE: RCA F32665 Shows only gray screen, sound works.

I'm having the same problem. It appears to be some sort of programming issue. Unplug the set for a few minutes, then go through the setup procedure when you plug it back in. This will work for a while, if anyone has a permanent solution please post it.

Check vertical output section getting more heat. Due to this section also cause on and off problem. You will not mentioned in sound side. During this condition you get the sound or not. Check the audio supply voltage also.

SOURCE: Convergence problem on 60 inch rear projection RCA

The likely cause of this failure is the convergence ICs got shorted and for sure It damage the pico/micro fuses and some of the fuse resistors nearby the STK ICs.
You do not need the chipper checker thingy for now until you can correct the voltage issue.
I would suggest to remove the convergence ICs first and check for the other possible blown parts.
I could indicate where the parts are but I do not have the service manual.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: RCA TV, model number 32V550T. No picture but sound is fine.


this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.

or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

We had a TV that did that once and the TV repair man said it was a CRT leak which is flamable. So you may want to be careful with it.

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Rca 27410tyx1 will not shut off

Sounds like trouble in the standby/power up circuit. have you tried unplugging the TV for a half hour and seeing what happens? It might start up but I think this problem won't go away. If you heard a high pitched buzzing it sounds like a problem in the high voltage not letting the start up circuit work. threy are related. The start up circuit waits for the high voltage to stablize and then switches it on.

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.
