Question about RCA 20F420T 20" TV

1 Answer

TV Turns Itself On & OFF with Notepad showing each time

When I plug the set in it will continuously turn itself on & off and every few cycles it will stop cyclin & will show the picture but the notepad is on when it does this & when pushing the notepad to turn it off it will sometimes show only the picture & sometimes it just starts cycling again on & off.
This TV wasn't even 8 months old when it started doing this but Wal-Mart wouldn't honor the return policy on it so I'm stuck now. It wasn't an expensive TV, but it's the principal of the problem and Wal-Mart Not Honoring their Products!!!
I do computer and satellite receiver repair & I feel that this is a Programming problem with the Flash/Eprom chip or somthing of that nature as the capacitors & Circuit board look to be in good shape.

Motor never turns itself off


If by motor you mean the compressor itself then no, it should not run all the time. The compressor should run until the thermostat senses the temp. is at where you set it then turns off the compressor. A couple of possible things... if the unit has a leak in the refrigerant then it may run almost continuously since it can barely reach the cold setting you have selected. Or the temp. sensor thermostat may be bad and the unit doesn't know to turn off. There is also a defrost cycle that happens about every 12 hours for a few minutes (depending on make/model on how it works) but that should also turn off the compressor and fans until the defrost cycle is completed. Basically it should turn off when the temp. setpoint is reached or when it's in the defrost cycle.
