Question about RCA 32F531T 32" TV

1 Answer

RCA TV stopped working

My TV all the sudden stopped working.  It was off - went to turn it on, hit the power button on the remote and it suddenly started to make a loud whining/whirring sound coming from the top back of the set. The power on the TV never turned on and could not get the sound to stop without unplugging it. As soon as I plugged it back in, the sound started up again. None of the buttons work on either the remote or the TV. 

 

Is it time to find something else or is it worth fixing? Its probably 5 years old.

    My RCA Home Theatre Premier stopped working after about 5 years. It has the same symtoms as the other two contributors; whirring at the top rear of the set, and will not power off. . . . . have to unplug it. Have tried to find an RCA certified repair person through the RCA website but cannot get any response through their "contact us" link. Have come to the conclusion that they are not interested in customer service, just the quick easy buck on an inferior product. Any suggestions on a repair for this problem . . . or better yet, a reliable product that will not self distruct when the warrenty expires? Thanks! Diane

    TV was working fine this morning and now it won't turn on. I tried both the remote and on/off button on the front of the unit.

    Any ideas....

TV screen went black, sound is intact, can I fix it?


This sounds like you accidentally hit the input button on your remote. It will either be INPUT or SOURCE on you remote. Turn on your TV and source(cable box) and hit one of those buttons until your picture comes back

My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working


Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.
