Question about RCA F36665 36" TV

1 Answer

TV turns on and off by itself

My television will turn on and off by itself. When plugged in the unit may go a week at times and be fine then all the sudden it will begin turning itself off and on. I have taken the unit apart and cleaned it and still the same issue.

  • Try replacing the batteries in your remote.
  • Cover the infra-red receptor in front of your TV to see if you’re getting unwanted signals from the receptor; covering the receptor with a bit of foil should do the trick.
  • Have you recently added equipment that might interfere with your TV’s operation—like a remote control extender or a new device for your audio-video system? Remove these devices and test the TV.

    It maybe some semiconductor IC got hot, need service or repair. It may repair itself if you leave it on standby for a month(at operating temprature a week)? This is low tempeature(the lower the temperature the longer the time) annealing or moisture curing technology, used by Nasa on transistor failure in satellites, or long range unmanned vehicles. You can always repair the unit later.

    Turns off

    Check the software and if it is not EJ30U_0.101.0.0 go to and put the firmware onto a USB stick. It will give you all the instruction on how to do it. If the set still turns off the problem is the SSB. Contact Philips @1-888-744-5477 and have your receipt to make sure the unit is under warranty and they will have a tech come out and fix the set.
