TV TURNS ON BY ITSELF IN MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT HELP

If you have eliminated the obvious things the tv must have a fault... The obvious things - a night prowler with a remote, a cat walking across your remote, a ghost that likes to watch tv, somebody sleepwalking... It is possible the infra red signal needed to switch on the tv is not coming from your remote. You can test this by removing the batteries or taking the remote to bed with you. If the tv still turns on then tape over the infra red receiver on the tv to eliminate the chance of some stray infra red beam from elsewhere being the culprit. If that stops the tv turning on you need heavier curtains or blinds or the tv moving perhaps, but if the tv still switches on it has a fault. There is another thought. Digital TVs and digiboxes are often programmed to wake up periodically to check for software updates. Mine wakes up at 3am but it only checks for software updates and doesn't switch on the tv, but maybe this is what your tv is doing. A further thought - a tv often has the functions of an alarm clock. They have a sleep function so they can switch themselves to standby after you have fallen asleep and then can wake you in the morning. Perhaps the alarm has been inadvertantly set for 2am? These days it is rather anti-social to leave any appliance on standby. Rather than unplugging the set every night and worrying about the kids, why not arrange for the tv to be plugged in to a switched outlet so the kids can switch it on or alternatively use a cheap plug-in timeswitch to prevent the set switching on in the wee small hours...

On screen writing over past the left side

Ok, so I'm seeing RCA TV, but you're talking about writing, so I'm wondering if you're using this TV as a monitor? If that's the case, it could be dependent on the the video card settings.If not, the input device. You could possibly have your view mode set to stretch or something like that. Maybe look in the settings on the monitor and see if it'll let you do a factory reset.

Tv is stuck on channel

Try turning the TV off and turning it back on. If that doesn't work try going into the menu and performing a program of the TV. Most TV's will have an option to program the channels. It sounds like your TV has only one channel programmed.

Just got this tv from

The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

Can't find button on tv to change source in order to play dvd

I'm assuming that you do not have access to the remote for the TV. If you do, you can simply press "INPUT" on the remote.

If you have no remote, try this:
Press the "MENU" button on the TV.
Press "CH Down" until "Channel" is highlighted, and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to highlight "List and Labels", and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to go below channel 1, you should see "FRNT" displayed.
Press "MENU" to get out of the Menu system.
You should now be seeing whatever is plugged into your front connectors.

Simply pressing one of the channel buttons will switch back to normal TV mode. I could find no faster way to access the front connectors without using the remote.

Seeing red !

I had a television that went to a bright shade of blue.A friends neighbor worked for sony television plant where the new tubes came down the assembly line.His job was to make sure tubes were working fine,if one color was dominant then his job was to smack the front center of the tube with a rubber mallot to fix the problem.He suggested i try that with my tube while the set was on.It worked and solved my blue problem.Apparently he explained,the gun connections in the tube came loose and to fix it was to smack it this caused the connection to reweld itself.For you I would use the palm of an open hand and smack the tube dead center with a good hard smack.Dont be afraid of breaking the glass because its very thick and strong.Give this a try.Hope it helps.Good luck!

Squealing set

It looks like an output transistor problem. You can't fix it by yourself; you will need to call a service. It will cost you at least 100$, so consider buying a new one good luck

55' polaroid tv & rca universal remote I can put code in for the menu to show up & it won't let me program reset or scan for channels or change cable to antenna nothing what am I doing wrong

It sounds like you may be having trouble programming your RCA universal remote to work with your 55" Polaroid TV. There are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Make sure you are using the correct code for your TV. RCA universal remotes come with a list of codes for different brands of TVs, so you will need to refer to the instructions for your remote to find the correct code for your TV.
  2. Try manually inputting the code. Some universal remotes require you to manually enter the code for the device you are trying to control, rather than using the automatic search function. Refer to your remote's instructions for more information on manual code entry.
  3. Check the batteries in your remote. Weak or dead batteries can cause issues with remote functionality.
  4. Check if the remote is in the correct mode for the device you are trying to control. Some universal remotes have multiple modes for controlling different types of devices, such as TV mode, DVD mode, etc.
  5. Check if you have the right remote for your TV, if not, try to find the right remote.
If none of these troubleshooting steps work, you may need to contact the manufacturer of your TV or the manufacturer of your universal remote for further assistance. My recommendation https://amzn.to/3WfBNpJ https://amzn.to/3INRZeH

I have a rca HDMI tv, I can’t get channel 526 or 54 they go pixels,freeze.

If you are unable to receive channel 526 or 54 on your RCA HDMI TV and the picture goes pixels or freezes, it may be caused by a few different issues:
  1. Check the cable connections on the back of the TV and the cable box or streaming device to ensure that all cables are securely plugged in and the devices are properly connected.
  2. Check the settings on your TV and cable box or streaming device to make sure that they are set to the correct channel and that the channel is not blocked or set to a different input.
  3. Check the signal strength of the cable or streaming service, if the signal strength is low or poor, it can cause picture issues like pixels or freezing.
  4. Check for any physical damage to the cables, if the cables are damaged, it can cause picture issues.
  5. Try to scan for channels on the TV and cable box or streaming device to ensure that all channels are being picked up properly.
  6. If the problem persists, contact your cable or streaming provider for further assistance, as the issue may be on their end.
  7. If the problem is not resolved, you may want to contact RCA customer service for further assistance.
It's important to note that in some cases, the channels you're trying to watch may be experiencing technical difficulties, or the channel is not available in your area.
