Question about RCA G36788LV 36" TV

1 Answer

Static on picture

I am starting to get static on the screen. The picture is generally pretty good but the screen will be will start to scramble and looks like there is some type of static causing it. If I hit the top of the TV, it clears up. It?s very random; sometimes we have to hit it several times in an hour. The picture is still good but I have noticed there is a slight darkening in two of the corners. Do you know what is causing this is is it worthwhile to fix?

The more you hit the set and wait to get this problem fixed ,the more its gonna cost ya. Your problem is a very common one for RCA. Whats happening is theres several grounds around the tuner sheilds and tuner covers that are intrmittanly going bad because of the differant types of materials they used for the sheilds and covers , so the metals are all reacting differantly to the solder ing in the set. This set if not fixed right away will cause the eeprom to go bad and or the vertical swwep Ic to fail. The repair shouldnt cost more then 125 to 175 bucks or your getting ripped off!! Happens all the time . Good Luck

Sounds like a power supply fault due to leaky capacitors(electrolitics).

Static interference problem

The Graco digital iMonitor scrambles the signal as it travels between the monitor and the receiver, making signals nearly impossible to be heard by others.

I had good experience with this product, it didn't suffer from the static noise problem.

N o picture just static noise

The symptom sounds like a dead tuner and the screen blanking may be due to missing video synchronization signals which may cause either blanking or 'blue screen' on some sets.
This could also still be because of a failing power supply although they will generally just cause no turn-on at all.
I would first substitute another TV just to be sure your signal source (cable or satellite) isn't causign the loss of signal.
