Possible bad tuner in the set if rear inputs function well.

Either its set not to cable in the menu or you may have a bad tuner which was not uncommon in this set.

That is the set not seeing signal, Its possible the tuner in the set is bad and first thing is see if a DVD etc connected to a rear audio/video input works---if so with a Cable box connected with audio/video outputs to one of the same kind of inputs on rear of set you can bypass the tuner and get around the problem.

Replacing the tuner if it is bad could be rather expensive.

there's a problem in Vertical parts of your TV, there is an IC that controls vertical alignment
of your screen, if this IC is fails the result is white line in the center of your screen
you see this IC inside the TV . you need some tecnical know how when servicing this unit
because there is a present of High Voltage inside. beter call for tv technician for repair.

Without seeing the lines I can't be sure what your set has wrong, but here are a some possibilities:

If the lines are lines are confined to the top inch or two of the screen and the picture looks otherwise normal, the trouble is bad capacitors in the vertical output circuit. Fixable by replacing the bad parts.

If diagonal lines are across the entire face of the picture tube and the picture looks washed out, the trouble is often a bad capacitor on the 200-volt line to the picture tube. This may be on the main circuit board near the horizontal output transformer, or on the small circuit board plugged onto the end of the picture tube. Again, replacing the bad capacitor can fix this.

If your TV is actually an RCA, someone may have bumped a rear-panel adjustment. On the back of the TV near the bottom right are two small knobs. RCA left these adjustments exposed inside of putting them inside the set like other manufacturers. These sometimes get bumped if someone was behind the set cleaning, or if a pet got back there and hit them with a tail. The top knob adjusts focus, and the bottom knob adjusts something called G2 or screen voltage. If this gets turned up too high it can cause the faded picture and diagonal white lines. Turn the adjustment down until a black screen looks black instead of gray.

A bad picture tube or horizontal output transformer can also cause lines through the picture. If this is the case with your set, it's time for a new TV. The transformer is relatively inexpensive but labor costs aren't, and the repair bill may exceed $200. If the tube is bad, there's no point even considering repair. The tube cost alone exceeds the cost of new TV.

Hopefully your lines are easy and cheap to fix. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Da qual esta se??o capacitor ??. Capacitores normalmente grandes vir?o na se??o Regulador de pot?ncia. Se o capacitor que voc? descreve aqui ? ao lado do principal regulador de energia, ser? de 330MFD 450VDC ou 450VDC 220MFD. OK

There is no reset for this kind of problem. The chances are that the flyback transformet is shorting, horizontal output transistor is bad, or possibly bad power supply board. The unit will have to be opened up and troubleshot. Some RCA units seem to be prone to this problem, and a friend of mine paid $300 twice within 6 months, so I can't vouch for RCA's long term reliability.
Hope this helps.

The Horizontal Output transister is shorted and may have been caused by a bad flyback.

The Red & White Cable must be plug into the Audio IN of the TV RCA jack this is for Left & Right audio. The Yellow must be plug in into Video Input of the TV for the picture. If you select the AV1 as your DVD input, to view it you must set the tv to AV1.

I asume your game systems and dvd player are hooked up via the rca inputs.So all you would need to do is purchase a universal remote,program it for your tvand press ch00 which should be the video input.make sure your dvd or game system is on so you know if you are on the right channel

It could be anything from corrupted data in the EEPROM (a memory IC that stores all the channel information and picture settings) which is usually caused by bad ground solder connections inside the tuner itself which is built into the main circuit board and would have to be repaired, not replaced or components inside the tuner section of the main PCB. With that being said - if you have to get a technican to come to the house and repair the set then it would probably be best to buy a new HDTV set. If you can take it to a repair shop capable of fixing the tuner, it could cost close to $200 to repair is my guess, and may work OK for another year or two before the picture tube finally wears out.

the key wire will disable the contact buttons , but it may be the sensor that is doing this and it would need to be replaced or even the crystal on the eprom or the eprom when connections are attached
have you made sure that the plastic buttons are not pushing on the contact button
did you or can you check the sensor with the diode check on the digital volt ohm meter?

RCA F35673MB 35"... | Answered on Nov 27, 2008

If you press MENU often enough, you will find and AUTOMATIC TURN ON FEATURE, also called ALARM feature. You can set it to Disable and this should cure your problem. You can also set times when it turns on automatically.
Does this help?

Yes you sound like pincushin is failing on you. Soon it will knock out horiz. output caps and Diodes. Needs repair soon.

This may be a CRT Board ( the board mounted on the back of the picture tube) Also could be a shorted Piture Tube.
