Question about RCA 27F500TDV 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

7 Answers

TV turns on and plays normally and then just shuts off

The TV and/or the DVD mode will play for 5-30 minutes then suddenly shut off. It varies. Once it does this any repeated attempts to turn it back on has it sutting off within seconds. If I wait a few minutes before turning back on, it will play again longer before shutting off, although not as long as the first time it was turned on and shut off on its own. It will play a VCR from start to finish without this occurring.

I have had this TV for 4 1/2 years primarily in a secondary room. I have never had any trouble until now. It does not get constant or even frequent play time in the entire time of ownership.

    RCA 27F500 TDW 27" TV/DVD/VCR COMBO

    The TV and/or the DVD mode will play for 15-20 minutes then suddenly shut off. It varies as to time. Once it does this, any repeated attempts to turn it right back on has it sutting off within seconds.

    If I wait a few minutes before turning it back on, it will play again longer before shutting off, although, not as long as the first time it was turned on and shut off on its own.

    This happens in either the TV or DVD mode.

    It will play a VCR from start to finish without this problem occurring.

    I have had this TV for 4 1/2 years primarily in a secondary room. I have never had any trouble until now. The unit was regularly used, although it definitely did not get constant or frequent use.

    Thank you. I thought of that and attempted to reset the timer using the remote. Obviously I did not do it correctly... :) I took the batteries out of the remote to see if it would reset and even programed another remote to the tv to see if it changed things. Nothing I did worked. How would I go about it another way?

    I read on the internet on a trouble shooting web site that it could be a controller problem. The controller thinks it is supossed to turn off when it shouldn't. Is that something that sounds true? Is it easy to fix or replace?

    Any thoughts?

    Is this something I could do myself or should I find a local repair person do do that? I am pretty handy if I had a diagram I could probaly do it.

    I live in Las Vegas and there are no reputable repair shops that I know of.

  • shannnnnnn Sep 15, 2008

    There is no reset button on this unit.

    I attempted the remedy suggested. The set obviously re-set after the manuver because all of the saved settings for the unit were now gone(everything was zeroed out).

    The TV still shuts off in about 10-14 minutes in Tv or DVD mode.

  • shannnnnnn Sep 15, 2008

    This makes no sense to me.

  • shannnnnnn Sep 16, 2008

    It turns out that I bought this unit at Costco back in Dec of 2003. The sales person said I should just return it. So I returned it for the full amount I paid for it back then and got a brand new 32" Samsung flat screen High def LTD for about the same amount of $$ that I would have spent to repair the RCA combo set I have been asking about....



    Thanks anyway!

Possible Causes:

  1. Timer problem, hense it turning off after a certian amount of time
  2. Defective Copmponent (Capacitator or Timer)
Try:
  1. Resetting the TV hopefully will reset the timer
  2. Change the timer settings, mabe you accidently set it up to shut down around that time
  3. Bunnydawgs Idea (he other method is to buy a can of compressed air and run the dvd.... use the compressed air to cool different components most likely in the power supply section of the dvd ... when it comes back on you have found the defective component.)
  4. Get out the manual and check how to reset the time

The problem is that you have tried these. I reccomend changing the timer settings instead of resetting, in the hope that it works :D Good luck

The reason that resistor failed, is because it was designed undersized. Duh, like a 1/2w resistor costs more than a 1/3w resistor. The real culprit is a picture tube arch, but not to worry, as the set gets more playing time, these minor archs will decrease and the 1/2w resistor will usually handle the surge.



Connecting several appliances to the same rc plug might provide efficiency; depends on the combined standby power usage of the devices compared to the plug.

I get it. The device covers the on/off switch of the tv. When activated, it physically presses the switch and *truly* switches the tv off, as opposed to putting it in standby. Nice. If it's true about saving up to £43 a year, then I'd buy one. Bun to you. 6

A bad capactor will do that... dissasemble and inspect for rounded tops on them.. when you replace them be sure to get the proper value and be sure to orient them as per the stripe on the side of the can. the other method is to buy a can of compressed air and run the dvd.... use the compressed air to cool different components most likely in the power supply section of the dvd ... when it comes back on you have found the defective component.

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 3 - 4 hours.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Hello
Just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug into after 5 minutes or so. This should reset the set to its factory settings. If it does not help you, just take out the disc inside, and insert an other one. See whether it reads it or not. If not, the set need service. Especially service to its DVD mechanical side. OK.

VCR plays 15 seconds, TV shuts off. Same without tape inserted


Sounds like a typical Switched Mode Power Supply fault, or an internal thermal fault that is shutting down the power supply, over & over. Really you need to get it serviced. You need to get a firm "Quote" for repair, remember these days repair can often exceed replacement cost.

Sony MW24FM1 either won't respond to DVD commands, or turn-off


Sounds like a bad power board. They have random meltdowns all too often. Usually the cause is an overheated transformer caused by power transistor short outs. Possibly sell it. Could get over $100 for it if sold online.

Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.


On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

TV shuts itself off after a few minutes. Will also shut itself off if the DVD open/close button is pushed. Not sure if a DVD is in the machine or not. Any ideas??


I know that shortly after I purchased this tv mine also shut itself off occasionally. The owners manual says that if it is on dvd mode and it's paused or on an inactive menu or something for 15 minutes or so that it would shut itself off. If a dvd is stuck inside it may be causing this? I have no idea about the open/close malfunction.
