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.

Hello, I have an RCA Truflat tv that I bought


If you can hear sound and the sound coems from your TV, try changing the volume with teh TV remote control. Your TV isn't off it is still on. Just the video board or portion is cutting out. this could be a ton of things, I would try changing out the power strip or plugging the tv into the wall directly to make sure it has enough power. other then that you can try a home brew solution like putting a fan next to your tv to cool the component that seems to be overheating and shutting down your picture.

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.
