Re: tv F27442

The TV does not have a reset button. If you have no picture and no sound, there is something wrong with the chassis. In this case the set should be serviced by someone experienced in the RCA CTC203 chassis. If you have no picture but do have sound, then it is possible that the 2 controls in the 2 little holes in the back of the set are not adjusted correctly. This is quite possible since you said you put a screwdriver in there and got a fuzzy picture. The control on the bottom is called "screen" and is the overall brightness of the picture and the control on top is called "focus" and is the sharpness of the picture.

F27442 - How to display signal from front panel RCA video input

To display signal from that input you will need to change the input on the tv. This can be done either on the front of the tv, or by using your remote control. First power on and connect the desired source. Next on the tv or on your remote, press a button labeled either source or tv /video and scroll through by continuously pressing until you see the source you connected appear on the tv display.
Good Luck

The power button is gone so there is no way to turn it on. is there anyway i can turn it on with the button?

You could try using a small screwdriver pushing straight in thru the hole where the power button was. If that doesn't work, put screwdriver in hole then push down on it. The switch inside the TV could be just inside the hole or up to an inch or so inside. To prevent electric short, wrap tape around screwdriver.
If that doesn't work, unplug the TV and take the back off, slide the circuit board out far enough to see how the power switch works then go from there. The actual switch is soldered to the circuit board. The power button is only a piece of plastic that actuates the switch.

No picture but has sound

Coil L14401 is not making a good ground. Remove him carefully, scrape the ends clean and the board where he was removed. Now reinsert and resolder this little guy,and Bingo you have your TV back. This is a common problem with your TV! Thanks for asking!

Jvc 27'' TV is too dark

There are two small holes on the rear side through which you can adjust focus and screen. Use a flash light and locate the two adjustable slots inside the holes. This part carries high voltage. Do not use a metal screwdriver to adjust. Put the TV facing a mirror so you can see how it works. Do not turn more than 1/8th of a turn. The focus control makes picture sharp or fuzzy. Screen control could change brightness. While watching the picture in the mirror, slightly adjust the screen control. Do not turn too much. If it doesn't work, then call a JVC authorized repair center.

Input Selection without a Remote

On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.
