Question about RCA F36665 36" TV

Open Question

RCA television turns itself on every day same time

I have an 8yr old RCA tube type TV model F36665. Every morning about the same time, it turns itself on. There is no internal timer for this, only a sleep timer. I've unplugged it for several days and plugged it in and it still does it. Can it be associated with a power surge of some sort? It just started happening.

SOURCE: tv will not power up

no reset button ,sorry. The problem you describe is pretty common with this model as its a fault in the horizontal drive circuit or in the main power supply and without the proper service manual as well as the prober tools and equipment this set its not gonna get fixed. there are no panels or user changable boards as it is a solid state set. ptscorp.com could repair this board or exchange it with a referbished board but it would still requir some adjustment that a user may not be able to handle. time to call the pro.. Sorry couldnet help ya more.. Good Luck.

The first thing in this unit is to check the ribbon cable that goes from the front control panel to the back ssb board, I would unplug and replug to make sure seated properly. Then try it again. There are alot of screws to take out but worth it if this solves the problem.

SOURCE: TV turns on & off

Hi there!
Exterior equipment attached to a standard tv cannot cause the set to switch on/off by itself.
I think you may have a power supply fault or else loose solder connections on the board, hence the "warming up" intro before the fault shows itself.
My suggestion would be a service technician if you are not familiar with electronics or TV's. Regards, JUS004

I have my rca model f36665 hooked up strait from the wall to the tv and I can't get it to find the channels. do I have to have a cable box?


First if cable I presume you have entered the menu and selected cable.

Another possible reason is the tuner/s in this set are bad---hook a DVD or something to one of the rear inputs and see if set works.

If set works that way and tuner turns out to be bad you can with a box with av cable out connections on back just go into a rear input and bypass the tuner--leave set on that input and change channels with the box.

Let me know if you have questions and what you find---usually on this set if no signal---"unusable signal" will appear on screen if no signal.

TV turns on and off by itself


  • Try replacing the batteries in your remote.
  • Cover the infra-red receptor in front of your TV to see if you’re getting unwanted signals from the receptor; covering the receptor with a bit of foil should do the trick.
  • Have you recently added equipment that might interfere with your TV’s operation—like a remote control extender or a new device for your audio-video system? Remove these devices and test the TV.

    Who said it cannot be fixed? You can try and hook an external speaker to wires and test for sound. Maybe audio outs have sound?

    TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.


    check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.
