Question about RCA RP5430 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Warranty Service The display lost one section so I packed it up and sent it to TX as directed in the documentation. It was delivered to them on 09/16/08. I have been trying for about two hours to find out when I can expect a replacement. There is no published number for the repair facility and every number I have found on the web, I call and get a different number to call. None of the people I have contacted seem to speak English very well and the only person who even bothered to talk to me stated that once received in TX, the units are shipped to Canada and I should expect a replacement in forty (40) days. He gave me a phone number to call but it seems to be a personal number, not a business number. So I spent $25.00 on a radio and $9.00 so ship it somewhere and I'm out a radio. At least for a month and a half and I have little confidence of ever seeing it again. I would feel a little better if I could find somebody that works there to complain to. I don't think I'll be buying any more RCA products any time soon.

     I have had this clock radio for maybe a year or so and liked the large upright display, but found the layout to operate it rather complex. Now a few months ago 2 digital lines on the same number have burned out so its very difficult to read the time as it was an hourly number (second from left on the display) and now one of the alarm displays for music wakeup has also burned out. This is a big disappointment- I will also avoid RCA electronics if possible. I hope they read these complaints and do something about quality control!

SOURCE: RCA F32650 32'' TV Just stopped working and 3 months after warranty 3-yr warranty expired

This is a very common problem with RCA tV sets. But unfortanatly, RCA is no longer made in this country or even owned by RCA anymore. They are a Canadian company called Thompson Corp and could not give two hoots about any problems with TV sets sold here in america. I say this from experience and try to contact them and file a complaint. ther customer service is rude and basicly calls us idiots! Alot of class action suits are pending or have been dropped as for the amount of sets they company have sold,They have attorneys working for them and delaying the cases. It is really the fault of the US Judges that are total morons about these things and try to go by un written laws. They dont have a clue as most of the US goverment does not. Your problem is not a power supply problem, But a high voltage transformer and a horizontal output transistor, and the reason why the estimate was so high, is because the tranformer is no longer available. Thats why the estimate is so high. Because who in there right mind would spend so much on a set as this. You can buy a 32" RCA(BUT I WOULD NOT BUY TRASH)At Wally World for less the $250.00 bucks! I no longer accept RCA TVs in for repair as replacement parts are so much money and im not proud to say I work on RCA TV sets. Total garbage sets!!

SOURCE: How to set a RCA RP3720A model

First, move the slide switch at the left rear of the top of the unit all the way to the right. You'll see the colon blinking, indicating that you are in 'set' mode. Now turn the dial that surrounds the ON/OFF button on the top of the unit. You can move it clockwise or counterclockwise, to change the time forward or backward. When done, move the slide switch back to the far left. Done.

SOURCE: Lack of support

I have solved this problem by deciding to never buy an RCA product again. The attitude of customer service is horrible, and if you think I will pay you to give me a solution to a problem that is clearly one of shotty workmanship, you can think again. One defective clock I can understand, 3 is outrageous and being asked to pay for an answer is insulting. No wonder so many businesses are going under these days.

My TX-SR607 Display is Lost but, Its still working. What happened...?

This can be due to failure of the display section power supply, the display processor or the display subsection circuit. So since the amp is working well otherwise then it is possible that voltage to the display is checked , the processor section is checked for correct clocking and the linking cords are checked. Sometimes it can be poor soldering joints and a good touch up of solder will solve.
