    I have a 32" RCA television that is 12 years old. It loses the picture after the tv is on for about a 1/2 hour. Sometimes it comes back on by itself, or after waiting 10 minutes or so I can turn on using the remote. A few times the screen goes down to a horizontal white bar and then returns to normal in an instant. It seems to me something is overheating and shutting down until it cools down, but I am not sure. From day one the TV usually requires 2 or 3 pushes of the ON button to turn on properly.

I had a similar problem on a 27" RCA and the solution was replacing the regulator and the surrounding components, there is a regulator kit that has all the components that are to be replaced, at the parts store you need to quote the model # and they should be able to tell you the kit

Not sure what model # it is , it sounds like a bad flyback transformer. If you can solder and unsolder you may fix it yourself for under $30.00 . If not a shop might charge you $85 to $110 .

Tv wont turn on

With set unplugged remove rear cover and follow the power cord to the fuse--good or bad? This set should also have some led lights there that are green or red---look to see if any are lit or if when plugged in with back removed which come on or go off instantly, the reason I ask is those are each tied to a voltage source and will point to where the problem MAY be.

Tv blowing fuses

More likely to be either shorted out bridge rectifier or MOSFET in the primary circuits of the power supply. You need to Ohm out those parts.

Recently, the color started going in and out.

Sounds like the power switch has gone bad, Have a repairman look at it.

Don't try this yourself. There are components inside that tv that can kill you instantly if touched.

TV wont turn on, sandby light flashes 7 times.

Any malfunction associated with a flashing stand-by light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

You're getting some feedback on the secondary transformer - most likely... Try to isolate where the pitch is coming from and see if it's harmonic. May just need to be glued down or have some leverage place against it...
