Question about RCA F27440 27" TV

1 Answer

27'' RCA appears out of focus on the vertical Edges of the Screen

I have a 26" RCA Colortrack TV model # G26231TN manufactured in July 1989 that is slightly out of focus on the left and right edges but appears to be in focus in the centre area of the screen. I have electrical training and am hoping to be able to replace the part if you are able to identify it to me. Can you help me with this?

I've seen this on many computer CRTs as they age past 6 years. I would imagine that the gun alignment is out. Are all the colors (RGB) fuzzy, or is it hard to tell?

1. Sometimes, extreme settings of contrast or color (usually to offset low output from aging CRT) can appear to unfocus your screen. Adjust color/contrast down if they are maxed out or close to highest setting/pot level.

2. A very likely culprit is unshielded speakers are too close to the screen. If this is the cause, the speakers' magnets distort the part of the screen closest to them (sides), and it will get better/worse as you move the speakers away/closer to the TV. If there are not magnets near the TV, and degauss function does not fix problem ('89 TVs have degauss?), see #3.

3. The focus can be set by adjusting the flyback transformer. As an experienced electrician, you should know about the dangers of messing with the insides of the unit.

If this fails, you might have other bigger issues. I'd suggest a nice trip to lead reclaimer if so. I'd say 19 years is quite a life for a CRT.

Hi
Try this:
Automatic Programming
1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.
2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control (TV, VCR, SAT, DVD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. The remote control is in programming mode.
3. Press POWER button on remote and release . The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power scan mode.
4. Press CHANNEL+ or CHANNEL- repeatedly until the device turns on.
5. When the device turns on, press ok to store the code.
Good luck pls rate

You have two possible causes. First the Main bd is going bad and second but most probably the Panel is bad and needs to be replaced.

Will an RCA Digital Convertor work on Durabrands model #1304.?.


Hello chlpepr2,

Yes it should work, connect the RCA video out (yellow connector DTV Converter) to the RCA video in (yellow connector TV set). Then connect the RCA Audio out (Red-Right White-Left DTV converter) to the RCA audio in (Red-Right White-Left TV set).

Then setup your converter box according to the manufacture's instructions.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
