RCA tv shutdown

TV shuts down just as picture & sound starts to appear

    I have the same problem. After over a year (the warranty period, unfortunately) of working perfectly, the picture and sound come on when I power it up, then shuts down after a couple of seconds. What gives? During the time it's on, the screen is mostly blue, with heavy blue sync lines going across it.

The safety circuit is sensing a problem and is why it will not let the tv stay on,the cause could be a problem on the mechanics of the vcr,you need to get an estimate to see if it is worth the repair and might be able to keep using just the tv.

if all the solutions and still the problem occurs then you should see you repair service so that he can replace what cause the problems.

My coby tv started changing colors and then i unplugged it and no it wont turn on


If the set was changing color it indicates a picture tube problem, plus you also have a shutdown problem, probably due to the picture tube loading down the circuitry, far cheaper to replace the combo tv.

Tv turns off after 30 sec. - 2min.


Hello,

If you can turn it back on with the s momentary key or power button:

When it shuts off, do you need to push the power button once or twice to get it back on? Also, does anything else about the picture or sound change as it warms up?

If once, then the controller is shutting the TV down either as a result of a (thermally induced) fault in the controller or it sensing some other problem. Monitoring the voltage on the relay coil (assuming these is one) could help determine what is happening. The controller thinks it is in charge.

If twice, then the power supply is shutting down as the controller still thinks it is on and you are resetting it. A couple of possibilities here would be low voltage or high voltage regulation error (excessive high voltage is sensed and causes shutdown to prevent dangerous X-ray emission). A partially dried up main filter capacitor could also cause a shutdown but there might be other symptoms like hum bars in the picture just before this happened. Clipping a good capacitor across the suspect (with power off!) would confirm or eliminate this possibility.

If it uses a pull-knob (or other hard on/off switch), then this may be like pulling the plug and would reset any abnormal condition.

Set is 7 years old - it turns off intermintently


Ours used to do that - and then we moved it to another state with us. Since the move it doesn't shut itself off anymore. I suspect that the problem was dirt and dust inside which got knocked loose in the move and the shutdown was due to thermal limits being exceeded. You may want to try vacuuming or blowing out the dust inside if you feel comfortable opening up the unit.

The TV will shut off by itself randomly (anywhere


Sounds like the TV is going into the "protect mode", usually means there is a failure present and it's shutting down to ward off any serious damage to the electronics. The status light will usually blink a error code along with this symptom, call a service center and let them know how many times the light is blinking in a continious pattern and that will help them to diagnos your TV problem. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok


Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

JerJohn29, did you fix your problem? The same thing just happened to me. I turn tv on, it tries to boot and then shuts down. How do I check for a shorted h. o/p transistor???
