Our problems started with picture lost, after contacting or cable company, going thru restarts and resets, they were removed as the cause, I also switched out antennea, no results, I fianlly took the RCA to a repaire shop three seperate times, the 2nd time they repaired the horozontal hold, but the picture still got lost in snow, upon third attempt, they are sure it's my cable (I'm sure it's not, having another TV in the RCA's place with same wiring and set-up, the set worked perfectly, nonstop, off-on, jiggle cables and wires, still the set worked perfectly).
Went and picked up the RCA from repair (3rd time) set it up, hours later same problem, jiggle cable connection repeatedly, then the piture returns, so for a week thats where we're at, I suspect that that TV repair shops inept ability is more financially motivated, or there repair people are just plan Dumb! There's obviously something broke on the mother board and or the cable input connection, or something having to do with signal path.
Anyway, what would you suggest.

Re: RCA 27' F27251WN
First thing you did not mention anything about the sound, if you are getting good sound .if you are not getting good sound associated with the problem you are having.the tech who you carry the set to ,did not check the tuner and the IF circuit there is where the sound and video originate from.if the sound is good then they should have looked in the video circuit a ic conrols that section.i would advice that you take it back and mention it to them.these set are the one that have thier tuner built on the board.and like to have that type of problem sometimes soldering around the tuner casing will solve the problem.good luck,any other question contact me on my email firstname.lastname@example.org or on this same website.

hi there! if you know how to troubleshoot technically this will solve your problem. 1.check the horizontal section of your tv , there you will see the flyback system connected at the back of the picture tube, never touch it because there still a remaining voltage charge on it , electric shock might happens if you remove it improperly. 2. check all the components inside the horizontal section only & look for possible cold solder at board and fix it if you know how to use the soldering iron and Pumps. 3, replace the defective component if necessary thru the help of expert tv technician in your area. Thank You
IF you are on a cable box check the cables remote for a aspect button or format button. you may be in zoom mode. also check your tv's remote for the same buttons usually on rca remotes the left arrow key is the picture format button.
Although your picture is perfect, I would think the fine tuning is slightly off. This can also be to do with the cable box frequency setting. Call out the cable people & get them to check the box & the setting up to the TV.
I just wanted to suggest some things for you to try, if you have not done them already. Try hooking up a known good signal, such as the main input cable from your cable or dish, hook it straight to your tv, and see if you can change channels, and get a picture on low band...2 thru 6, and then if not, how about any picture above channel 6, if you get picture on 2 thru 13 now, it could be whatever you have hooked in between the input cable and the tv...be sure you have the tv on the right channel for your receiver, usually 3 or 4, or if you are using another type of video input cable, make sure you have tv on the right input for that cable and that cable is good...check the in and out of your component unit, for correct cable hookup as well as your cables, in reference to using RCA video and audio left and right in and out...a lot of sets and vcr's will go to a blue screen if they lose signal to them....I hope this helps you out some.If you cannot get a picture from hooking your signal straight to your tv, it could be the tuner got a spike from a thunderstorm, or has lost the B Plus source for the tuner circuit. Be sure that it is not selected for an input signal,other than the cable or antenna mode, the onscreen text should verify this, if you can change channels with or without getting video...a picture....Good luck with it.
