Question about RCA 27V530T 27" TV

4 Answers

No color The TV when turned on one day suddenly was without color. It has a good black & white picture. The color did not gradually go away, it just wasn't there. The tv is only about 3 years old. Please recommend what can be the problem and hopefully repair it at home. On some of the websites I visited it referred to the Chroma chip/circuit loose or maybe bad. Please describe what this part looks like so I can investigate it. If you have a schematic for this model that would be helpful. Thanks Diane Peel

Re: no color

A trouble in any of the following circuits may cause the symptom: bandpass amplifier, ACC, color killer, 3.58 Mhz oscillator, 3.58 Mhz output, burst gate and burst amplifier. but as techman told you, if you are not inclined in this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician.

Re: no color

Diane, so sorry to burst your bubble doll but this is not a place for you to even consider experimenting with. Do you know how to read a schematic? Do you know what a burst amp is or how its generated? Really you should not attempt to repair a TV set unless you understand how the color or how the other circuits work. Do you know how the croma Oscilator and the burst circuit works together in the video to produce color? Please unless you can answer all of the abouve , seek out a pro to assist you in this repair as I said many times before, a solid state TV set has no user serviceable parts inside them.

Why does my KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron screen have blue hues

If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.

We have a Samsung DLP about 5 years old. We noticed that the fan or some sort of hummning sound was coming from the back louder than normal while TV is on. Then suddenly the picture would start to freeze...

This tv have a colors wheel,hear loud motor noises,humming noises,squiling or grinding noises,have pictures black and white.All these causes are by the colors wheel is worn out, warp rubbing against it motor or fiber plastic glass briddle about to brake aparts.Don't turn this tv on anymore until,u change the colors wheel or u will damage the projection engine.The colors wheel are hard to change for amatur and hobiest.Because involved taking out many machanical parts,before even can come to the colors wheel to take out and change it.The best course to to hire a Tv do this job.The price colors wheel part and labors.Awhile back was about $500-550,now??

Click click repeatedly faded then red blinking light

Go to the video menu and turn the color control to minimum. Determine if you have a black & white picture or is it green & white. If the picture is greenish, you have a problem in the screen circuit or possibly a bad picture tube. If the black & white is ok then I would suspect a problem in the chroma circuit such as a bad video jungle IC or a crystal. However, because your set had a red blinking issue prior to your existing condition I would lean towards the picture tube as the source or your troubles. You can try a simple test to determine if you have an intermittant short . Take the back off the set, and with the insulated end of your screw driver, very very lightly tap on the neck of the picture tube near the socket. If you see green flashes or hear loud snaps in conjunction with your taps or the green tint goes away, chances are the tube is the cause. If so, you might try installing an isolation transformer on the picture tube. Good luck

No color

If the settings are correct and the signal is good but there is no color, it can only be one of 2 things - the CXA jungle IC and the chroma crystal next to it. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

Picture flips from color to black and white continuously

I believe your set has a loose conection that needs to be resoldered ,every time you hit it reacts and that is good,you need to use a wooden or rubber handle to tap in the main board,around the tuner and in different areas until it reacts,be attentive when it does so you can flip the board and resoldered the area that made it react,once the problem is corrected you need to resoldered any other overheated areas and there should be a few in your set,check the grounds in the tuner(where the coax goes in the inside,is a silver box),the horizontal driver transformer and output transformer.Be careful while you do this and stay away from the thick red wire going to the back of the picture tube specially when the set is on. Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
