Question about RCA 32V550T 32" TV

1 Answer

Losing picture on tv!

Hello,
I just recently inherited a tv from my cousin and it is a 36in RCA (old school tv). Once I hooked the tv up with the coaxial cable I had picture and sound. After about 10 minutes I lost the picture and the screen had horizontal lines appearing sporadically. For some reason, the tv then did not recognize the channels that my cable provider offers. I shut the tv off for about an hour and tried watching the tv again. When it fired up, the picture and audio were there again. Also I was able to go up and down the channels with the remote. After about 20 minutes the picture started to become uneasy and started to turn into the horizontal lines I saw earlier. I feel like my tv is losing picture for some reason and I have no idea why this is happening. Is there something I can order to have installed to fix this problem? Any suggestions please help!
Thanks kindly.

The ITC008 chassis is commonly riddled with poor solder connections. Good soldering station, patience and some good light and magnification and you might be able to fix it... Or you could spend a few dollars and run it into the shop and have a tech do it! It's not an expensive repair.

It has sound but no video


If it's the TV on the picture, It would be cheaper to by a new set. I repair TV's and old school picture tubes are very hard to find and not worth the time to replace. Flat screens show better and use a 3rd of the energy.

I have 36in rca tv from 99 and my tv screen keeps blinking.


Might be a power supply/transformer problem. With the prices of TV's as low as they are today, it is probably more cost effective to replace rather than repair. I just recently bought a 40" HD flat screen with all the bells and whistles for $299. It would probably cost you close to that to repair your 15 year old unit. Food for thought.

I have a RCA 32V432T 36in...the screen is light blue with white horizontal lines...it looks like a film in front of the actual picture...there is still audio though. what's going on?


Hello
There are two main causes for this fault. The first one is, advanced screen voltage to the screen grid of picture tube. The second one is leaky blue video output transisotr.
Just open your TV, and locate the screen control. It usually can be located with LOT [Line Output Transformer]. There will be two adjustable controls integrated to this LOT, marked as screen and focus. Out of which, the lower one will be for screen adjustment, and the upper one for focus adjustment. Just rotate the screen control [the lower one] to a little counterclockwise, so that the thin horoizontal lines on the screen just fade of. Adjustment is critical and should be done with care, and a small movement may just be enough. If it does not help you, repalce the blue video output transistor. This part can be located at the bace card [the printed circuit board fitted to the neck of the picture tube]. Locate it, replace it. OK.

Hello,

Your convergence amplifiers are begining to malfunction. This is not expensive However I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to work on the set due to a chance of damaging you TV if you install the amplifiers incorrectly.

I hope this helps

thank you,

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!
