I purchased an RCA Television (Model #F25645) a few years ago. Everytime I play a DVD, use my VCR, watch DirecTV, or play on my PS2, I get sound, but I always end up with a gray screen, not snowy, but gray. This just started happening about a week ago. Please help me correct this problem.

Re: Problems With RCA Television (Gray Screen)
Your problem is the old rca tuner sheild repair thingy. Its a simple but tricky repair where the tuner grounds around the tuner sheild and under the bottom of the tuner sheild has to be resoldered. Most repair shops in the states that i know of charge like 65 to 125 .00 to do this simple repair. Now if you know how to solder you can get this reapir mod from sams photo facts and do it your self but its really an involved thing if you dont know what your doing as some of the serface mounted parts look like a spec of dirt and i've seen a few peeps clean off those specs and ruin the whole set. Best for you to take this set in for a repair. Good luck

This is commonly known as a vertical deflection problem. It cannot be fixed with an adjustment, but requires changing some electronic components. Namely the vertical output IC (integrated circuit) and in addition usually in this model a resistor which may appear to be burned.
There is no RGB connector input at the rear of your RCA tv. There is Video, Audio-L, Audio-R and S-video inputs. You won't get any response from your TV, if you connect the RGB connector to the above said audio video connections. You can connect the Blu-ray player with S-Video connector. After connecting it with specific S-Video cable to your TVs S-Video input and Blu-ray players' S-video output, assaign the input of your TV to S-Video, by going to its Menu, and sufing through it. OK.
My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?
Go to this site you need a flyback its the only onethey sell for an RCA number 259296 cost less than 50.00 and they provide free tech support so you can do the repair yourself which takes about a half hour. a repair shop will charge abut 400 to replace the flyback. heres the link http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
This is a common problem and a local repair place shouldnt charge more then 90 to 125 bucks to repair. Its the tuner and tuner sheilds that need to be resoldered. Theres even an RCA service bulletin about this repair. At one time RCA was giving out rebate coupons if you had this repair done for future purchaces of RCA products but Im not sure if they still do this . Good Luck
