Question about RCA F27650 27" TV

Open Question

Tv screen is stretched too wide

Comin back from a week vacation, i turn on my rca f27650 to play xbox and i realize that my screen has been stretched out of proportion! i cannot see sides of the proper picture. i swith it to tv mode and the channels on the top left only show half of the first number! after trying to play around wit the menu settings to see if anything can be done to play wit the parameters! i went on my xbox 360 because i knew that there were settings in there to change screen fittings! what i found as a success (somewhat) was that when i changed the xbox screen format from normal to widescreen, the picture was formatted and actually fit the screen....kind off! the screen was no longer stretched and i was able to see the whole screen. even wit this somewhat succes, unfortunately the corners of the image were warped and appear compressed to fit format! i have tried troubleshooting from online but i have been most disappionted.

~ i have kept it unplug for hours / days to try a reset.fail

~ i have researched on how to acces the service menu for my model so i can adjust it but i seem to be finding only instructios for the generic rca service menu! the steps:
hold menu, press release power, press release vol up, release menu
i havent been able to get to the service menu at all!
i thought that i might have already activated it but the screen jus didnt let me see it so i went and tried to acces this generic service menu on my other rca tv! it was a truflat rca model f20t10 ! similar guidpluss menus and all but i believe a bit newer! even on the rca f20t10 i was still unable to acces any service menus!...if you got any info on how i can fix an fit my screen please please let me know! thanks in advance

    I have the same problem. The screen is stretched too wide (horizontally); but other than that, the picture quality is fine.

SOURCE: RCA 27F520 Shutdown after a few seconds

you have lost the vertical ic and maybe resistor or capacitor.
but you also maybe loosing the horizontal ic
you will also have to check the voltages on the flyback transformer that go to those circuit's to see if they drop or are correct

Top and bottom of the screen are cut off


That set has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The problem is that what you are sending to it is 16:9 So you are sending an hd signal to a non HD television. The tuner is NTSC which is not HD. Theres not much that you can do about this.

Horizontally Outstretched


Hello Toasty07,

This problem is called blooming it is caused by poor high voltage regulation. To fix this problem I would suggest that you take the TV to a TV repair shop because the section requiring the work contains very dangerous voltages and a great shock hazard exists. Just tell the TV repair person that you believe the Tv has a HV regulation problem and to concentrate on the HV section of the TV.

Thank you,

Wide screen


Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
The name of the button on the remote is called format.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

Tv turns black and white


No, the tube is not bad. There are a couple of very small surface mount components mounted by the main microprocessor that could be causing what you are seeing. They are very small and quite hard to unsolder and replace without losing them. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the new RCA chassis.

RCA F27650 27" TV - Snow Bursts


The model you listed, F27650 uses the new ATC113 series chassis, which is only about 3 years old. The ATC113 chassis is not known to have snowy issues, but if yours is then I would suspect that a solder joint is loose in the tuner. If your set is actually around 9 years old, then it might perhaps have the notorious CTC175 - CTC187 series chassis, which went snowy all the time due to cracked solder joints on the shield grounds around the tuner and microprocessor. In either case, some good quality resoldering should cure your trouble. If you have never done fine solder work on PC boards with small surface-mount parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

Xbox 360 stretched screen out and cannot fix it now


Have you checked the aspect ratio?? May be that when the kids had the X-Box hooked up they simply changed the aspect to zoom.
