RCA F31317 31" TV Turning self off and on then completely off
I just purchased this TV second hand and the people said that it turns off and on every so often like every other hour (hey for $20 I can deal with that), but when I got it home the problem happened every half minute to only a few seconds! The TV would just turn itself off and then back on but after a few times it just gives up and turns self off completely. I already tried the hard reboot and I really don't want to have to take this monster down and up 3 flights of narrow stairs again. Does this problem sound familiar? Any help would be very much appreciated
Re: RCA F31317 31" TV Turning self off and on then...
I had a similar problem with my tv. Mine had been sitting outside for about a month. After using it for about a month the channells started changing themselves on occasion. Next came it turning off automatically. I physically took it apart and removed the switches (i.e. in your case the one to the power button) I did this aprox. 1 year ago, so I can't remember which wire I cut... but not I just use a remote to turn it on and off. good luck

the front panel assembly is rca part # 237420
I assume your chassis is a CTC203
Un plug the fpa and see if problem still acts up
you may not be able to find one
then try replacing the sticking buttons on it
I would check to see if the lamp is actually comming on before anything else. The color wheel won't cause a loss of picture. Here is a link to purchase a suitable replacement lamp for the TV. It is 300 dollars less than the RCA version.
my tv is a 27inch rca . and it started doing it about two nights ago. turning off and on by it self . i checked to see if the timer was on, but it was in the off mode . so i unpluged it , for about 5 minutes . then it was ok, but its still doing it off and on. i check my manual . it says . to reboot the tv , i did that .tv plays for long time now . without doing it..
