This sounds like the front panel assembly(FPA) switches are acting up. What happens with this model is the FPA switches start to conduct just as if someone was pressing the buttons. This in effect locks up the system control or causes it to do erratic things.
The way to determine if the FPA is bad is to remove it by unplugging from set. This requires front panel disasembly. Note:The remote will still work with the FPA removed so the set can be tested.
Also double check that the remote is not the problem by removing it from the room or removing the batteries
Let me know if you need more help or info.

What the problem is here is you have a bad power supply or you need to do a hard reboot. On this tv to reboot you need to unplug it from the wall and leave it unplugged for about four hours if not you need a power supply

The ITC222 convergence option missing repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually repair that issue. The kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions.

These are faults in the scan amplifiers. I have my doubts you can fix this yourself! You will require the proper training, and troubleshooting instruments to determine the fault. Then you will have to be able to change the parts, and re-calibrate the scan amplifiers.
In servicing these sets, there are serious safety issues. I don't recommend any non qualified person to go inside of their TV set!

Get a professional estimate first. I am sure you will find the cost will be expensive. There may also be an availability of parts issue depending on what has failed.

no, to reset it you simply unplug it from the wall.

You need to resolder all the pins on the IFT ( HV Transformer ).
Common problem with that model. While your at it, look the entire deflection board over for other bad joints.

Hi,

Your TV must have a intergrated digital TV tuner to pick up digital signal..

Your TV RCA 52WH74 doesnt have a integrated digital TV tuner,so it wont scan digital signals
The next option is buying a external digital TV tuner box and feeding the analog output from the cable box to the Tv, this is the only option you have..

The other TV may be having the integrated digital tuner..

Please leave me comment, if you need any assistance
