Rca 32in" tv turns on and off and on and off ect... then when it does stay on it does a channel search over and over. Then it will let me watch tv for about 5 mins and starts the process all over again. picture and sound are fine. Just wont stay on! Can you help?

    Mine randomly turns on/off and sometimes it stays on just fine but the buttons are scrambled for example I must press vol+or vol- to turn it on or off.
    This makes it annoying to turn the volume up or down as I have to hold the button down to get to the volume I want then press it again to turn the tv back on.
    And, this is using the remote or the front panel buttons.

    I have the same problem with a Samsung Slimfit 30 inch. I called costumer service and they told me I have to pay from my pocket to fix it. I'm gonna wait and see how much it will cost, but one thing is for sure: I will never buy a Samsung product again.

Your problem is in system control section or there might be a problem of loose connection in system control.

RCA 32" wont turn on

It sounds like you may have a bad Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT) and/or a bad Flyback Transformer. The set is trying to start as indicated by the flashing light, but an internal fault is shutting it down right away. It could also be the Power Supply circuit. A 32in. set is not cheap to replace so it may be worth finding a repair technitian and at least getting a quote. The Flyback is the most expensive part, the others are minimal. If it is one of the above problems it could easily be repaired by a qualified technitian.

Please help me

I bought one too! It failed in 6mos. I sent the $ and returned the bad one for another of the same "no choice". Now they suddenly "lost" my replacement. Fix that, haha. Do you have a fax# for RCA?
Please help me.

Programming my rca universal remote for basic cable the stations wont turn

I can only suggest that you Double check you have the connections correctly set ie. coax ariel to ,(dvd /digi box reciever ect...)
Also check again (& i know this is state the obvious)
your tv manual. IF you havent a manual do a google search for your tv (make & model) & search for a manual.

Ive have had a simmular experience when programming channels to a Vid-Recorder & when i finished the channels dissapeared.

I realised I didnt have the video set to the correct channel with the tv usually channel 9 or the highest channel on the tv.
So i waisted a good half hour for nothing.
