Question about RCA F27615 27" TV

1 Answer

Red screen! I'm not sure what happened, but I picked up this tv after the garage sales this last weekend *for free*. When I got it home and plugged it in, it warms up for a few seconds and then fades into pure red. I've tried contrast, color, etc. but can't seem to figure it out. Any ideas?

I have a sony trinitron wega - I know it is old but it is still great -- I need some advise on getting a pvr -- what should I look for

Actually, the TV is only a display device. It's just there to show you the picture from the PVR, and you're free to pick any model PVR with the features you want and a price you like. The only thing you need to be concerned about is connecting the PVR to the set.

Your Sony should have audio and video input jacks on the rear panel. (I'm assuming you have a Sony since your question is posted under that heading, but that's not always the case.) Almost every model has at least one set. These older models usually only offer composite video input with a single yellow RCA jack, and a pair of jacks (red and white) for stereo audio input. When you pick a PVR, just be sure it has a composite video output available. I haven't seen one yet that doesn't, but there a lot of models out there. If your model also happens to provide a component video input (with three RCA jacks, colored red, green and blue), that's even better. Component video gives better performance, and it's a standard output on PVRs and other video devices.

All you need to do is connect the PVR video output to the TV and select that input. You can connect the audio output to the TV, or use your home stereo receiver and speakers instead if you have a system. This might give you enhanced sound performance.

If your TV is a model not equipped with AV inputs (true for some very basic models, especially smaller screen sizes), you'll need an RF modulator. The TV can only pick up signals from its tuner, and that's where the modulator comes in. It takes the video and audio from the PVR and makes a channel 3 or 4 signal to the TV's antenna input. You might find a PVR with a modulator built in, but that's pretty rare now.

The tv works but the dvds wont play. The symbol showing the disk is trying to read appears and stays on screen but nothing ever happens. When I try to eject the disc it won't. I have to turn it off and on...

my dvd player doesn't play all types of discs, especially homemade like ones ripped from a home computer. However, i do not play many dvds, yet i have replaced the players many times. I dont think that most dvd players are built to last. Sounds like you have 1 built-in (to tv). The players are cheap now-- your better off saving the headache and replacing it- The last one i bought was $30.00 on sale-get a cheap 1 cause i think they all have a short lifespan.

Did you check the brightnes knob to make sure it's not turned to down all the way?

Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.

Problem connecting video game

you may have a yellow, red and white input on your tv.A 3 wire cable goes from your video game (red, yellow, white outputs) to these inputs.If you do not have these , it will not work.

No Color

How is everything cabled? Is this over the air or using composite cables (yellow/red/white). Sometimes this will happen when you plug  a component cable into a composite connection or vis versa. If it's over the air signal or cable tv, check and see if the on screen menu for the tv is also in B&W. If the menu is B&W, it could something else.

Unstable signal

Are you sure it says unusable signal instead of unstable signal.
This means that you have the wrong input in place in the tv. If you got the original remote with it there may be an input button. on it. Some RCA's use 00 for the video input. If your cable goes directly to the antenna connector on the back you should get all channels when you do auto search in the menu provided you have the right input programmed. If you are using a cable box the tv must be on channel 3 or 4. video input uses rca cables red white and yellow to the proper input on the tv but there again the input must be set correctly. Possibly in the menu do a search there. Hope this helps.

Sony 35inch Trinitron Color TV

Try hooking up a vcr or dvd player that you know works.The TV "thinks" it's not getting a signal. Be sure the TV's on ch #3 or #4, depending on the output channel for the vcr. If you see/hear the tape on TV you know the TV's ok and the problem's in reception, maybe a loose connection.

What are the specs of this tv?

If the TV has the corresponding red, yellow, and white plugs, simply match them up and you're good to go. If it happens to just have white and yellow, plug those two up and it will work fine (sound will be mono instead of stereo). If there aren't any of these plugs, you can pick up an A/V switch. This is a box that has multiple sets of red, yellow, and white plugs to connect multiple devices to a TV but it also will allow you to connect these devices to a TV that only has the round coax connection (like what comes from your cable company) just follow the directions included with the switch and you'll be fine. You can pick up one most anywhere that sells electronics.

Screen is filled with a circular Red/Green/Blue pattern

The problem will be with the de-gausing circuit, this de-magnetises the tube when the set is switched on from cold, this is a fault you will need to get an engineer to look at ie, not a D.I.Y repair.
