Turns off by itself!!!

The tv will turn off by itself while watching a program. It makes a loud noise. You can sometimes turn the tv back on but it will do the same thing again. Other times it will not come back on. You have a black screen. when i turn the tv on, it immediately turns itself off

    I have a RCA TruFlat Model: 20F424T, it is less then 6-months old, and it just started powering off and then turning itself back on 2 days ago.  I have unplugged it for 8 hours to try and reset the factory defaults, and that did not seem to help.

    My TV is only 11/2 years old and keeps turning itself off???? What can I do to fix this problem????

    I have the same problem. My 19" RCA TruFlat is not even a year old yet. I feel RCA should fix this problem, at no cost to the consumer.

    RCA 24 inch tube TV. Less that a year old. When I had this problemm before on a RCA, a fellow soldered all the pinholes in the main module and the TV still works today. That was 12 years ago. If i replace the flyback transformer, can you guarantee it will really fis the problem.

    I have an RCA t.v., the model number is 20f514TD. The problem is that my dvd player inside the t.v. stopped working. Now every time I turn on the t.v. it shuts off on it's own and turns on by itself.

The tv usually turns on but all of a sudden it won't. When it does turn on it makes a loud noise like a boat. Someone told me its the fan but I'm not 100% sure though. The noise stays on until the tv

Sounds like the motherboard on the TV has failed. Would recommend replacing the TV or taking it to a TV repair shop which may cost more than just replacing it.

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on

If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.

TV Making a Loud Noise

this can happen with the flyback transformer's brightness which can be adjusted , also the power transformer can make humming or buzzing sounds which can't be adjusted , also this can happen with the picture tube or the CRT board failing , and sometimes chips with heat sinks or the IC's themselfs

Yes it could be a cooling problem, If your tv has any filters remove & clean them ensure fan can turn freely & that nothing can or is snagging it.

Static on screen and then turns itself off then on

My first aproach will be to see if the tv reacts to tap on the sides if you see a reaccion when you do it most likely you have a loose conection and need to call someone to find it and resoldered it.Dont do it yourself if you dont know how.
