RCA 32V550T Posessed

I turn on the TVand it will work just fine for about 15-20 mins. Then I lose thepicture, but it still has audio. Then after about another 15-20 mins Ilose the audio as well. Any suggestions? This TV is less than a yearand a half old.
Ihad read on a blog or forum in the past regarding this problem and theystated it was some sort of "chip" that needed replacing.
I know that this is not much help. I had done a Google search and found it. I haven't found it since. after turing the tv on about 20 minutes it goes black and an unable signal lettering appears on the screen

    I may be wrong that it is the circuits since it still works. It could also have a bad flyback transformer and shorted horizontal output transistor.

    I can't say which one for sure without looking at it, you will need to get a technician to look at it or rca may be able to help, but I think you will be taking it to a techinician

    After much searching, I found this problem with the solution given for this specific model of tv.

    Unit shuts down right after turn
    on. Unit has vertical and horizontal sweep.

    The tech opened DL062, board
    coordinates for this is U11. Located
    just left of the flyback as viewed from the back of the set.. This diode monitors the pincushion output transistor. It will shut down the horizontal drive at
    TL061. problem was a defect in the pincushion circuit. Recommend replacing
    pincushion board Part # 263370.

    Let me know if you need further help, I am sorry for not being any more helpful.

RCA 32V550T Nothing happens when you press Power. NOTHING.

This set needs a flyback transformer p/n 262342, and a horizontal output IC, location number on the board is q14401 and crosses to NTE2353. When you're in there too touch up any bad solder joints you can find. Fixed several of these with the same problem.

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


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

Your high voltage transformer is likely to be ready to go completely out. Thats the way these do. I have replaced many.

Still posessed!

These tv does have loose of audio problems im concern about looseing picture . Try unplugging tv for 5 minutes it will reset tv very common fix for audio. Tv that are less then a year old are sometimes covered under new warr call manufacture on that.
There is a microprocessor on these that lockup and when you unplug it. it resets it.

I have a tv shop and have helped customers get exchanges under a year especially if you complain

RCA 32V550T 32" TV Possessed

I am having the same problem with my RCA 32V550T. This has been the worst purchase I have ever made - it was an expensive TV at the time that I got it and it only worked for a few months. It may or may not come on. It may or may not have sound. It rarely works but If per chance it does come on it will work maybe from 15 mins to 2 hrs. depending on it's mood - yes I think it is possessed. It turns on and off at will. I keep it unplugged most of the time because I worry it may be a fire hazard. I have had it repaired but the problem persists. It's a useless but expensive heap of junk taking up space in my living room. I had a great RCA VCR that I bought many years ago but contemporary RCA products are not the quality they used to be - be smart and stay away from them.
