Question about RCA 20F420T 20" TV

1 Answer

20" TruFlat cuts on and off on it's on

I have a 20" TruFlat TV that I purchased from K-Mart about 9 months ago. Just recently it has started shutting off and on by itself. This is the 3rd TV that I have had this happen with (all RCA's-I should learn my lesson) I have seen that others have had this issue. What is the average repair cost to have this issue fixed or is it even worth it?

My 20" rca 20f424t cuts


That sucks about your tv. Mine just turned 3 years old. Never had a problem with it. But you seriously can't expect wal-mart to take back and exchange a 3 year old tv. Come on. That would be stupid for walmart to do. Even RCA prolly dosent do more than a 1 year warranty. Unless you purchased the warranty from walmart, it will be cheaper to just get a 19 inch lcd tv now. Cheapest I see them on sale for is only $99.99

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.

Bad picture tube


Sounds like the sweep is going out. Probably cheaper to buy a new TV than repair.

TV only 2 months old ceases to work


Hi

I think it is the EHT for some reason it blew off for you. You got a miniature picture after you turned it on again because it was partially damaged and then it blew off completely. It can be fixed from a competent person.

Blurry Picture


I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

RCA 27 inch TruFlat TV/ Walmart Feature Item "Defective!"


I AM SORRY ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS WITH YOUR TV... AS IT IS YOU BOUGHT YOURS AT APPROXIMATELY THE SAME TIME THAT I BOUGHT MINE. I STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THING YOU DID ABOUT 6 MONTHS AFTER I PURCHASED IT. BUT THEN I THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO SOMETHING MY NIECES HAD DONE TO THE TV. MY DAD TRIED TO FIX IT AND IT WORKED FOR A WHILE AND THEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE 2006 IT WENT COMPLETELY BISERK!!! NOW I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO GET THE CONTROL PANEL.
