Black Powder A black powder seems to emanate from the set and settles on the walls of the entertainment center where the unit sits? It's not house dust as this unit is frequently cleaned.

Re: Black Powder

Get the set checked at a service center. It is possible that a component inside may be bruning up. This could possibly be due to some parts starting to fail.

It is a 32A14 model. power to house was cut off, electric people replaced phone poles. when power came back on tv wouldn't turn on, no red LED indicator light lit up, and it makes this chirping sound in...

The tv high voltage "H" horizontal transistor IC is dead.That "H" transistor IC sit out side outer wall of the FBT-the flyback transformer,that the big black block of a plastic,with a red wire with a cap hook up to the CRT-(tv tube).Best take to the shop for repair,because part for analog tv are impossible or near impossible to find and do for the replacement.

MINTEK TV - Black screen in the center of the picture

This is the closed captioning text box. Search the menus to turn off closed captioning. The reason for its seemingly random appearance is that not all channels nor all programs provide this service.

Setting up my freeview box- NO CHANNELS FOUND


The cable & wireless system is not capable of picking up the digital freeview frequencies.
Idealy you need to put a new aerial on the roof,
If this is not possible try an indoor aerial that you to plug in to the mains electrical supply.

TV turns off with balck screen and small color dot in center

Best Educated guess would be your Flyback transformer is failing. Not something you can replace at home and the value of the part may exceed the replacement value of the set by the time labour and part are factored together. DO Not look to replace this part yourself as this part inside the set as it has a high voltage that can be lethal. Output voltage can be around 50,000

Sounds like your "CC" (closed captioning) is turned on and it is set to text mode.Go into the menu and turn the closed captioning "off". The default v-chip unlock code is "0000"

Loose Picture (Goes completely Black)

Nothing special about that board as I cant seem to find that # but If my memory serves me correctly it sounds like a crt board and its a simple soldering job on the crt socket?? Altough Im not there to see the set still 550.00 seems like an awfull lot to repair a set even if they have to replace the entire chassis. I think you should cal rca and take it to an authorized RCA repair center and if the shop you took it to was an rca authorized center I would also report that to them(RCA). Good Luck
