RCA 32V434T Flashing Red Light

While watching the olympics tonight the TV suddenly shut itself off. After unplugging it for about 10 minutes and plugging it back in the power seemed to come back however the TV does not "turn on" or at least does not provide a picture. Instead there is a flashing RED light next to the power light (normally it is green).

If anyone knows what the flashing red light means (and more importantly how to fix it) please let me know. If the TV blew a fuse, where is it so it can be replaced?

My TV cut off by itself.


I'm not a repairman, but I do know that a lot of sudden power-offs happen due to overheating. If an electronic device gets too hot, it has a auto shut off function that kicks in. Try unplugging it for 10-30 minutes and then try it. If its plugged into a surge protector, try plugging it directly into the wall outlet.

Olevia TV shut off by itself.


You probably have either loose solder joints or components that failed after heats up. You need to look inside to see. Learn more about failed TV and monitors, caps.

My 32v434t television.


The TV was making the clicking noise and not turning on because an internal error was being detected.
Now things had got worse , and something had blown inside the TV.
The burning smell and high pitched noise is coming either from Flyback transformer or PSU board. Repair is a delicate matter and must be done by a technician.

RCA 32V434T (32'') TV has no Red or Green pixels, only Blue


The color problems are caused by cracked/broken solder joints on the circuit that controls the display.  Usually this is located at the back of the tube on a small circuit board. Your description suggests that only the blue signal circuit is intact. I suggest these joints be resoldered for more strength.
It's a possibility that another IC senses this problem (or another one) and then shuts down the system.
Resolder those joints and see what happens.

We had no control of the DVD that we watched last night. No pause, fast forward, etc. Tonight, trying to watch another DVD and the one from last night continues to be playing and will not eject. Neith


Sometimes when you unplug the set ffrom the wall power or a while 1-2 minutes, and then plug it back in the problem will resolve itself. The DVD may eject. If it does, check it for damage, warping or dirt. If this does not fix it- you probably should take it to a repair center.
