Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

We have a 36" RCA television (not a flat screen). We probably bought it in 2002 or 2003. When it is turned on, It changes channels every 5 to 10 seconds. It does not seem to be looking for channels and it does not respond to the ENTER button for choices on MENU. Is it worth getting fixed or is there something I can do myself? when it is turned on, it flips channels every 5 or 10 seconds.

First you need to find out if the problem is in the remote or the tv - just take all the remotes from that room and close the door, if the channels keep flipping then it's in the tv.
In that case the problem is either in the control panel of the tv - the button for the Channel Up is faulty or the processor has aged and has become unstable and malfunctions.
What you can do is to open the case, locate the control board and try to unplug it from the mainboard (or at least the CH up button). If after that it's still doing that then the tv has died, replacing the control processor will cost way more than the tv is worth.

Sounds like it is probably the backlight. Turn the television on and tune to a channel, then try holding a flashlight RIGHT up to the screen and see if you can see a bit of the picture.

I have an RCA 36 inch tv, the color is messed up, it has a round circle and it will not change channels


If the set wasn't dropped or physically dammaged the chances of it being the picture tube is very small.
The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. $35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Somehow you have enabled the Closed Captioning mode. Work your way through the menus to turn it off and the problem will be resolved. The channels that come in normally are not transmitting the closed captioning information, thus no CC black box.

TV turns on & off by itself. Channels also change by themselves.


Make sure your remote is totally away from the set.
Make sure the buttons on the set are not sticky
If both of those are ok, it's your E-Prom in the set. RCA's are notorious for this, not a major repair, maybe $75-100. The 8 leg e-rom is only about $6.00
