Question about RCA F36650 36" TV

1 Answer

The picture on my TV keeps going black--it lasts about 30 to 45 seconds. Then the picture comes back on. It stays on for about 45 seconds, then goes out again. The lights in the center of the screen are red, then yellow, then they blink red and yellow. Can you help me, or should I call a repair man? It just started doing this today. Up until today, the set was and is wonderful. I'm very pleased with the set. We have AT&T UVERSE installed. Picture won't come back on.There is power to it but will not come back on.

Call a repairman.. Your problem would either be a cold solder or an intermettent part on your tv.

My Sony CRT TV keeps going on and off. The sound stays on but the screen goes on and off


Do you mean the picture is blinking on & off every few seconds ?

Sony will do this if the picture is going bad. You might try to adjust the master brightness or screen control.

remove the back cover and look for a black square box, it will have a red wire attached to it that goes to the picture tube, this is the high voltage transformer. On the back are 2 knobs, one for focus and the other for screen. Try turning up the screen control. You can use a screwdriver if you want, but there should be no danger of shock.

Picture on 15 year old Trintron comes on briefly then goes black


if the sound goes out its not a tube problem . a bad tube would have no effect on the sound .you problem (my guess) is in the power supply . a modern tv power supply has parts of it that stay on all the time unpluging it is not the problem its when you plug it in ! the power supply gets a JOLT . you might get away with it ,you might not . thats why we install surge arrestors on power plugs and with expensive tvs i recomend a UPS a power unit that keeps the tv powered even wnen the line power is out . thats keeps everthing in the sets nice and even ,so the tv lasts longer ... a modern tv turned off uses about 1.40 in electric a YEAR in standby mode , so what are you saveing if you send you set to the landfill early and have to buy a new one ? over 1.40 in electric ? . turn down you water heater or something else simple dont be blowing out you electronics for the sake of a few cents ..... good luck .... if this answer helped please rate a 3 or 4 , this high rateing will hepl keep me in the paid answer department . thank you

tbrace, your picture tube is getting a little tired, the "IK circuit" is causing the blanking of the video because the tube is not returning a large enough signal back to the IC that monitors it. Theres only one fix (besides replacing the tube) for your set and that is to turn up the screen control. You have to remove the back from the set and on the right hand side there is a large plastic part called a flyback transformer, with a heavy wire coming out of the top which goes up to the picture tube, mounted on the front of this transformer is 2 black blastic "philips type" controls, one over the other look closely and one will be marked focus(do not turn that one) and the other is the screen control, turn the set on and SLOWLY turn the control clockwise until you see a bright picture with white lines in it, once you see the lines turn it back until they disappear, (check several channels to be sure they are gone) your done, may last 3 weeks, may last a year, it`s all you can do, BMW Rider

Tv picture blinks off and on


The on and off conditions is repairable and is not the tube,you should have it check out for loose conections and try not to use it or it will go bad for good and the repair will become expensive,Check power supply,horizontal driver transformer and crt board,If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for help.
