It sounds as though you have what is referred to as a climental problem. In laymen terms, a transistor, chip or regulator is heating up and breaking down. The way a technician normally isolates this type of problem is by using a cooling agent ( freeze spray ). When the set heats up and the picture goes away, the technician sprays some of the cooling agent on a part of the board ( select a small area, about 6 inches square ) at a time and see if the picture comes back on. When you do finally get to the bad area, the picture should come back on for a short period of time until the bad part heats up again. After a period of time and by using the freeze spray, a person can isolate the exact bad part. Replace that bad part, and any filter capacitors hooked to that bad part and the set should work properly. As always, use caution and unplug the set before opening the set and when using the freeze spray, be sure not to touch any connections in the tv as they could produce shocks.
I hope this has helped and good luck on your problem.

Turn on TV and picture and sound are great for about 60 seconds. Then the picture disappears but sound remains.


I would start with checking the power supply 12vdc output, make sure it is stable with no ripple. If the power supply checks out fine, I would then suspect the main board.

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


hiya

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

Picture loss!


It sounds like cold solder joints on the vertical IC chip. Not a major deal. The entire board should be looked over for other joints becoming cold.

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!


It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at www.laptopsforless.com part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)

Intermittent loss of picture


You'll have to locate the vertical output IC which should be mounted onto a heatsink, then take out a good magnifier under the printed circuit board and examine the solder connections on the pins of that IC and resolder the ones that are cracked.

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
