Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

TV/Remote Issues This is a weird situation. The only way I can turn the tv on is by touching the power button on the tv and clicking power on the rca universal remote. This also happens when I want to change the volume, change channels and change inputs. Never seen this before.

Odd problem alright. So you have to hold in the power button for the remote to work, and the power button won't turn the TV on by itself? Or am I misunderstanding. It sounds like the power switch relay is bad... and the board the receives messages from the remote is perhaps on the same circuit. The switch will need to be replaced. I wasn't able to locate parts online for this. RCA has a link to parts, but all they have is a replacement lamp. However, there is a service center locater link on RCA's page. http://direct.where2getit.com/cwc/apps/w2gi.php?client=rcathomson&template=searchretail_new Most places should be willing to sell you the parts you need, or get you in contact with those who do sell them. Or, you could just take it to them to be fixed.

How do I program this RCA nightclub universal remote for my Samsung smart TV

First understand that you need a little patience with this remote, it's a little slow, it may take a few seconds in between pushing buttons for it to react to your TV.

1)
-Turn on TV manually first.

we're going to try and get the remote paired to your particular tv

2)
-Facing RCA universal remote towards TV, press and hold both the POWER and TV buttons on the remote at the same time.. until the RCA universal remote POWER button lights up and is constantly on.

-Then press the PLAY button on RCA universal remote

(POWER button on remote should be blinking after pressing PLAY -- what the remote is doing is trying to program your TV with a list of codes. if your TV does not automatically shut off after a minute, press the PLAY button again. your TV should shut off. wait a few seconds before trying to press PLAY button again if you need to try again.)

3)
Assuming remote turned off TV. Now let's try to get the remote to turn on your TV

On the remote at top right is a REVERSE button, press that. You should see the POWER button on the remote blink once in response to you doing that.

Watch for the power on light on your TV.. your TV may take a few seconds to power on..

Wait a couple seconds. if your TV has not turned back on, press the REVERSE button again. the POWER button should blink once again in response

If your TV did not turn on. You may have to repeat pushing the REVERSE button waiting a couple seconds for the remote to try turning on your TV. For some people this can take several times, if not a dozen times. Just be sure to be patient and wait a couple seconds in between pressing the REVERSE button again. (what the RCA universal remote is doing is going through a list of codes trying to find the right model to pair to)

4)
Assuming the remote finally turned on your TV.. We are almost done. We programmed the remote to turn off the TV and turn on the TV. now we want to press the STOP button on the RCA universal remote to lock in those codes into the remote. After pressing the STOP button the light on the remote POWER button should turn off.

5)
We are done. You should be able to change the channels and raise and lower the volume of your TV.

Hi! Hope this will give hint... I understand some televisions nowadays are fully controlled using remote but there is always a standby power button for the television remote function. If the there is no power after turning on using the standby power button please check power cables, supplies and fuses. If the television has a standby power waiting the remote to act on but no response after pushing the remote's power button check the battery and its contact. Goodluck.

RCA model# F26071ES television set clicks on, then immediately off when using power button on TV or by using remote.

This should help you.. use the TV button on the remote instead of the power button. If the TV is working properly and the buttons aren't damaged this should do it.
I know mine clicks off as well.. unless I use the TV button to turn it on.

Freak accident, won't show 75% of channels now!

I lost the manual to this set, but last night I found the Menu button on the remote. I pressed it and then clicked SetUp. There was an option for Quick SetUp of Cable/Satellite. I clicked that and it was then able to find all my cable channels again. I still do not know how we messed it up by bumping the remote -- especially when it was turned 90 degrees away from the screen -- but this has restored it. Thanks.

Clicking sound is power relay engaging. If all systems are not functioning properly, unit will shut down to prevent further damage and/or fire hazard
