Question about RCA F19240GY 19" TV

1 Answer

Picture scrambled periodically

Hello, The picture in my RCA TV is getting scrambled time to time in random parts of the screen. It looks like some portion of the screen is getting horizontal deflection to the right. It appears randomly in different places. Hitting the TV helps to resolve the problem and it may work Ok for 1 minute or for 1 hour then it gets scrambled again. Also periodical thin white diagonal strips appear and disappear with random spacing. Thank you.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

The text box function of the closed captioning is on. There may be a button on the remote to turn it off or you may have to go into the menu to do it.

Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.

SOURCE: TV turns off after short period off time

I have this problem as well-have to keep the house cold enough to keep it on.  I also have a box fan blowing into the right side vents (the side OPPOSITE the built-in dvd player).  It helps a lot to have the fan there, but if you put the fan on the left side vents you will have much more frequent shut downs.

It could possibly be a protection circuit in your tv that protects it if something is not functioning properly. from what is described, it could be anything from overheating to even a bad power supply! I would have someone look at it. Good Luck!

SOURCE: RCA 27 in has white horizontal line going through the middle

this symptons is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence, the trouble may be in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuit. in most modern tv the vertical ic is usually composed of these said circuit inside. the ic have many pins, standing on a heat sink and smaller in size. try to check also the capacitors surrounding it. sometimes leaky capacitor may cause this problem. good luck!

I'm connected to a dish network receiver and the picture was good until my son tried to plug in his playstation 2. Now everything is back to the way it was originally installed except there is a scrambled...


Hey there. You want to make sure that the cables are tight on the back of the receiver and also that the tv is on the correct channel or input. Sometimes, if the tv is on the wrong input, you can get the picture, but it will look scrambled. So if you are in the room with the receiver box, you want to make sure that the tv is on channel 3 or 4, and sometimes on an input like Video 1 or 2. If on the secondary tv, you will want to make sure that the tv is on channel 60 or 73. I hope that this helps. You can follow this link below if you need more clarification.

I have an RCA PR42300 Plasma monitor that has a display issue. The audio works fine and the unit will stay powered up for hours without powering off. The screen is scrambled and sometimes works on powerup...


Wow, that's really old and rare!

I couldn't find any information about its boards on Internet which is unusual and not a good indicator.

You most likey have a bad sustain board, but for the life of me I couldn't find any part numbers and I am usually good in searching.

You'll have to open the TV and look the board numbers for yourself - you're looking at the two large boards located on the left and right side of the TV. Those are your prime candidates, especially the one on the left (looking from the back).

Hope this helps. If it does please rate it and do not forget to post the board part number (it's written somewhere on the board).

TV picture scrambled and getting worse


This can be a fault in the tuner, IF, or primary part of the video processing. With age and use some of the parts, and especialy capacitors, in these sets can become thermo sensitive and unstable.

To service these types of faults can be very time consuming. On top of this would be the cost of the parts.

Considering the age and type of set that you have, I would suggest that it is time to be looking for a new set.

Picture distorted


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Static on picture


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
