Re: Lighting hit tv

Sets that have been hit by lightning can be very tricky to repair sometimes. it could be as simple as a shorted bridge rectifier, a current limiting resistor, or maybe an open PC trace on the board. I have seen some sets hit by lightning that took out almost every IC, tuner, several resistors, and burned several PC traces up. This repair will be up to you, if you want to spend the estimate fee, as it is highly possible that this set will not be worth the repair. Good Luck

I have a 27 inches RCA TV (model:27R410T) , Firstable when i turn the tv on ,it works fine but just for about 2 minutes , after that video has gone , no video only audio ,and start changing channels...

It maybe some semiconductor IC got hot, need service or repair. It may repair itself if you leave it on standby for a month(at operating temprature a week)? This is low tempeature(the lower the temperature the longer the time) annealing or moisture curing technology, used by Nasa on transistor failure in satellites, or long range unmanned vehicles. You can always repair the unit later.

27R410T 27" TV: our RCA Model 27R410T has maybe 20 hrs of total us...

Ok, well the good news is prize or NOT it is still covered by a warranty, that's the law, you need to contact your local RCA office, and ask them for a referral to an Authorised service center, and you will be able to make a claim, and in any event, that's where you are going to have to take it to be repaired in any event. The Consumer Act, indicates that anything sold must be of "Merchantable" quality, clearly any unit that fails after less than 24 hours use, falls into that definition. You simply have to find a Dealer, Service center, whatever, and in all fairness, they should take care of it, there may be some costs involved, but usually not. Below is a technical Service manual, this is what I use to train the engineers to repair these units, have a look,
