Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a RCA L32HD31YX12 TV. The TV works fine for a half hour and then the screen flickers and goes black. The sound continues. If I turn the set off for a half hour, it works again for another half

When the screen goes black you can tap the set and the picture flickers back sometimes.

You have answered your own question, someone needs to open it and find a loose plug or broken solder connection--if it reacts to being tapped on that is the issue- a physical problem inside.

    Never thought about that. Thanks big guy. How many boards are in this thing? Main board and power supply board?

    Most of these have just one very large board and another tiny one at the end of the neck of the picture tube----

    I opened it up myself to look around. Thoroughly cleaned it out and checked all plugs and solder connections. Found that the plug to the LCD panel(s) was loose and barely attached. I've had it on for over a half hour and it seems to be working just fine. I'm going to mute the sound and keep it running until morning. Hopefully the picture will be there when I wake up. haha

I have a 32" RCA LCD tv , rlc3210 power input says

Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

Tv turns black and white

No, the tube is not bad. There are a couple of very small surface mount components mounted by the main microprocessor that could be causing what you are seeing. They are very small and quite hard to unsolder and replace without losing them. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the new RCA chassis.
