Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture goes dead after 5-10 minutes

Television Displays full video and sound for 5-10 minutes after which the picture zaps out into the middle and the screen blank. The sound operates normally afterwards but no picture. When you turn the TV off and on the picture comes back but problem persists. Heard this could possibly be a comb filter prob? I work in electronic but not TV's so I am unfamiliar with the some particulars of this cuircuit. Sounds like something is overloading and shutting down.

Re: Picture goes dead after 5-10 minutes

You may have a loose solder joint causing this problem. If you can take it apart, you mihgt try spraying circuit cooler in various parts of the circuit but NOT in the high voltage or horizontal circuits.YOU MAY CAUSE AN ARC OR A COMPONENT TO SHORT SINCE THE SET HAS TO BE IN OPERATION WHEN YOU SPRAY. If you hit the bad connection the picture will come back on. When the picture zaps to the middle of the screen, is there just a bright line? If so, then you have a loose connection or a temperature problem in the vertical circuit. Stargazer

No signal!

Hi Rabia,

It seems as if the Picture-in-Picture feature of your television is activated. Please take a look at the remote control and find the PIP button and press it, this should bring the picture into full-screen and allow you to hear the audio.

Tv takes a minute to get picture

Greg , Sounds like a bad "jungle IC" but without knowing specific voltages it`s really hard to say, picture should show up in approximately 15 seconds not a full minute, it`s normal for the audio to be heard almost instantly way ahead of the video, part number for the IC is 875210104, generic number is cxa2154as, be prepared they are not cheap IC`s, I would probably run the set for awhile and see if it gets worse as time goes by. good luck

Line in the middle of screen

You have a bad component in the vertical circuit of your set. If you hit it on the back of the cabinet with your hand which will "jar it" and the picture flashes back on then you have loose connection. If nothing happens then the vertical circuit has a bad component most likely the Output IC. (Chip) Stargazer
