Re: RCA 20" TruFlat picture is yellow

On the kine board,( the small board plugged on the back of the tube.) look for and test rb030,rb050,rb070, all 3 resistors sould read 1000 ohm (or 1k ohm). I suspect one of there resistors are open. if not on ib001 (same board). you can check for these voltages. pin1 2.8v, pin2 2.9v, pin3 2.9v, pin4 0v (ground), pin55.9v, pin6 181v, pin7 104v, pin8 105v, pin9 111v. all voltages are in dc. hope this helps.

I have a 27" RCA TruFlat TV. Recently the picture

Something has definitely gone wrong. When picture fails, generally the audio will still play; but since the set is shutting down completely after a short time - it is going to more involved.

Firstly, anything can be fixed. The questions to ask are: 1) At what point do you stop spending money to repair a device that is XX years old? 2) How much would a replacement / upgrade cost?

Given that your set is an older SD (standard definition) with an old analog NTSC legacy tuner, it may be worth while to make the move to a digital HDTV. The picture quality will "blow away" any SD version of the same image / program that your old TV displayed. Unlike several years ago, the HDTV has come way down in price, too. A 32 inch, wide screen HDTV price starts at just $235 as results shown by a search in Google. In order to view HD signals, you'll need either 1) a plain UHF/VHF antenna (and local broadcasters in range), 2) HD cable TV service or, 3) HD satellite service. Cable and satellite providers offer SD service and for slightly more, HD service. Most people are not happy watching SD signals on an HD display - so you'll probably want to change the level of service if you're not using an antenna. Old DVD players only send SD signals, you might consider upgrading to a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players provide SD and HD signals - depending on whether you insert an SD DVD or an HD Blu-Ray disk. The Blu-Ray players, like the HDTVs, have also dropped in price significantly.

See if you can find a place that provides free estimates. If not able to locate, find someone that will apply the cost of diagnostics (ask what the diagnostic fee is) to the total repair charge, and decide to either fix or replace.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thank you.

I have an RCA tv 21in truflat model number 20f514td. It's about 2 years old. About a month ago it started randomly turning itself on and off. It stopped for awhile then started up again, and now won't stay...

RCA is notorious for bad solder joints. If you are able, pull the back off, remove the main PCB from the bracket and flip it over. (ps: sorry, Unplug the TV!) Inspect as much of the solder connections as you can, reflow any cold, thin, or cracked looking joints you find. Many RCA TVs have been repaired by just this simple method. If you are not able or confident enough to do this, contact a local repair shop for service.

My RCA truflat tv won't turn on? It is only like

Could be a fuse in the unit or a bad powersupply i would have a estimate done on it before repair gets started as a newer tv would cost less if this was a major issue.

1. check fuse
2. check power supply unit

If you do not know how to do this would recommend you take it to the experts as there is serious high voltage that can be fatal inside, Please do leave postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

Possessed TV

Either get a priest to do an exorcism..... or it sounds like an internal issue.... likely a bad capacitor. if you are able to do some basic troubleshooting ... remove the back and look for any capacitors with rounded tops.

Blue line

good day.
The case you encounter with your unit is just a minor one. Most often caused by loose contacts particularly in the horizontal circuitry. Try to have the circuit be resoldered.

response is highly appreciated.

Horizontal Lines

RCA is not a good tv brand as far as i can tell but other than that you may need to have your tv looked at before something else happens. You may have 1 or 2 bad IC's.

No Picture - Black Screen. Intermittent Sound

I repaired an RCA same model with a very similar symptom. I found bad connections on the printed circuit board at L411 and L 412 (coils) in the horizontal drive circuit. Give the set a good Fonzie ( Happy Days) smack on the side and see if it comes on. LOL. Bad connections are common with that model. It is probably worth fixing and no, lightning didnt do it.

Rca truflat with green tinted picture?

Just because a machine has failed, there is no cause for you to call it a stupid TV. And as it is only 6 months old, why not take it to the Company service Centre? There must be warranty.
