me123,You might try spraying

me123,

You might try spraying some control cleaner into the switch, I think radio shack sells it. Work the switch back and forth a few times to clean it,and maybe you can get it to work. If this does'nt work take it to a repair shop. It may be worth to fix it. I have an old RCA about the same age as yours and really like it. It has 2 speakers for stereo sound and a great picture.

If the only problem is the sound and the picture was fine before that gave out then I would repair it.

i also have an old rca and i spent mega bucks only to find out there was dust on the circuit board on the inside of the tv. all they did was clean the dust off and charged me 200 dollars. when all i need was a 6 dollar can of spray.

hii think that you have a bad

hi
i think that you have a bad tuner board.
it needs to be resoldered, it's a tricky job i do not know if you'll be able to do this. you might have more luck next time if you would post a chassis # which is located on the back.
good luck
