RCA 32V434T TV just stopped working. No picture. We hooked up another TV and it worked so we know it isn't a cable or cable box problem.

Repair cost should be in the 60 dollar range??? and you say it "could be simple or more complex" ??? does $60 fix anything at your favorite repair shop??
The problem is the flyback transformer and if you do it yourself with your technician buddy, maybe $30 or so,, a replacement flyback for that set is available from a variety of sources,,,, if it is dropped off at a shop.....$100 to $200 depending on the shop and location.

You should take the unit to a repair shop for an estimate. The problem could be simple or more complex and costly. I would take this opportunity to upgrade to a newer set as repair cost should be in the 60 dollar range.

    more expensive i will agree with. How can you say without a doubt the flyback is the problem. I understand that that is a common failure part but without actual troubleshooting of the unit it is impossible to tell. Maybe the tuner module is bad. or maybe a component like a horizontal output transistor has gone bad causing the set to display no picture. That is also why I originally recommended replacement as a best option. I hope that helps.

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD


Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

Cannot get picture/menu on screen!


Hi,

The Sony recorder is connected to the TV via the RCA cables (for both audio and video)? How many inputs does your TV have? One cable input and one RCA line in (making a total of two? Did you eliminate the possibility that the recorder might be defective by trying it on another TV?

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

When I hook up the cable to the RCA truflat tv the screen stays blue. I had it working with a cable box, do you know why it's not working with just the cable?


Your cable system is probably digital, and the tuner in this TV isn't compatible with the system. The cable box output was a regular TV channel 3 or 4 signal the TV could tune in. Without the box, though, your TV's tuner sees nothing. You'll need to stick with the box.

60" RCA TV


The tuner in RCA is a known issue. I recommend connecting the satellite with RGB (Red-Green-Blue) component cables and red/white sound cables and use video. The picture will be better. The tuner repair can be pricey $$$

Got an rca 32v434t, plugged in hooked up, and it


we would need more information:

has TV worked before
how many hours has TV been used

I have seen this 'ShutDown' on many failing monitors..


Typicaly the Power Supply circuit in your TV
have 'Over Current' detection\protection
and your 10 second is just about how long somthing is probly taking to either:

over current and shut down
or more specifically:

one or both things wrong with it:

bad electrolytic capacitors ( maybe )
but if it's a perfect picture for all 10 seconds then probobly some specific semiconductor or module is: 'Heating Up' then 'OverTemperature' and failing in a manner that causes an immediate overcurrent condition, shutting off the TV.


- give more information

- if capable of safely removing the back of the TV to allow for inspection...
,
WITHOUT GETTING ELECTROCUTED
by the high voltage that remains stored inside the tube, even after power has been removed !
,
then pop her open and have a look at
the PCB's ( circuit boards )

if somthing has been running hot and has led to this type of failure; then your circuit board will be discolored near the mounting of that device... You may even notice a burnt pcb smell at that area.

anyhow

somtimes you can find these semiconductors or modules in catalogs or online ( OfCourse )

and yourself or sombody with sufficient knowledge of soldering and the
' Potentially Life Threatening Hazzardes '
that exist around CRT monitor repair....

... can go ahead ad replace the suspect part.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!
