Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

My good old reliable RCA ColorTrek (probably from the 80's) lost it's picture yesterday after a power outtage. There is just snow and static noise. When I try and change the channel to the proper one (4) for Direct TV....the ch. number comes on the screen and then changes to a different number (14 or 21) and the screen (and noise) stays the same. I thought it might just be a programming problem, but there is no 'reset' button that I can see. I don't have a remote and can't seem to program my Universal Remote (also RCA) to make it work. I've tried all the methods on line...! Thanks for any help you can give, Tish in Hermosa Beach CA

I have a Phillips magnavox P960349102 model#PTV835. I have power no picture or sound. How do I fix this?


Have power/deflection board rebuilt. Probably will not last long from my experience. In reality this model is too old for a good, reliable fix (like CTC167 in RCA is too old for a good fix, and Hitachi pincushion circuits).

TV went out


Hey Jim, The high voltage protection circuit has gone out on the D-board and will need to be replaced. The fuse to the power supply is probably fine. A good repair tech shouldn't charge over $125 for this and it only takes a couple of hours. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Picture problem when I use an external antennae


You cant unless you have been trained to trouble shoot solid state electronics as this set has no user serviceable parts inside and is best left to the pro tech to service. good Luck
