Question about RCA F27664 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture takes a while to come on

Hi!
So, my ten year old RCA F27664 has been a real workhorse, but now it's showing it's age by taking a while to come on. The Picture takes anywhere from 3-30 minute before it comes up. Sometimes it works fine but then again it will not come on. I've checked all the cables, but it's just an intermittent issue. Is it the bulb and can it be replaced or is it time to retire the old thing. Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,

Matty

Replace the TV. The average lifespan of direct view CRT based TVs is 8-10 years. Take a leap into the 21st century and pick out a nice flat panel LCD. Take the old RCA attach a rope to it and bring it along on your next fishing trip and use it as an anchor.

You need to select The correct AV input channel! Usually this is done from the remote......if you can do this from the TV Then it will work if not you either get another remote or another TV!

The green crt on my rca tv has light but no picture inside. i changed fluid. still same. the red and blue have crystal clear pictures. also makes a real fast clicking noise and takes five miutes to come...


The problem is the driver for the green tube. Without test equipment this could be hard to track down. Also the fluid is just to keep those high intensity tubes from overheating.

Hi! My toshiba 2100td tv is over 10 years old and last few years it's having weird problems. When it's turned completely off (not in standby) and when I turn it on, the screen blinks for a 10-


The real problem here is its age, a lot of these sets of that age critically needed parts are just no longer available.

I repair them but the real risk is someone fixed it, a few months later it develops another problem etc etc etc.

Ten years is now a days a long life for a TV.

I have an RCA G32705 TV and it will not turn on anymore. It worked fine a few hours earlier, now it makes a squeeking noise. Any suggestions?


Hi - it's a good set, I have a 32695 which is a year older (1999). Top of the line Home Theatre Premier series. Common problem, it is the EEPROM chip on the circuit board. Very common problem to lots of RCA, GE, and Proscan. Shows up with age and yours is about ten-years old. If you like the set (I like mine) you might want to seek out an estimate for inhome service. I'll bet it will be well over $150.

Alvin is now 20 years older than his son.In 10 years,he will be twice as old as his son's age.What are their present age's?


Christine,
(D=Dad's age, and S=Son's age)

D=S+20 (Dad is 20 years older than Son)
D+10 = 2xS (In ten years Dad will be twice Son's current age)
therefore (by substitution):
S+20+10 = 2xS
S+30 = 2S
2S = S+30
2S-S = 30 (subtract S from both sides)
S = 30 (Son's current age) *answer*
D = S+20
D = 30+20
D = 50 (Dad's current age) *answer*

In ten years, Dad will be 60, which is twice Son's current age of 30.

Please ask for -Gort.

Hi I have a 52" RCA big screen tv that is only 3 years old however we turned it on today and it is showing some red blue and green lines and the picture is blurry


Hello clara7,

This denotes a convergence problem. I would suggest that first you enter the menu of your TV ad try to do an auto converge on your set, if this does not work I would suspect that the convergence ICs have gone bad and need to be replaced. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician replace the convergence ICs in this set.I hope this helps,Shuttle83http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

Hello bren2619,
This might be a case of the Phase detector (excuse my aged response) let me change that to Quadrature Detector, allowing the audio to be intermixed with the video, if this can still happen? I have not had a problem like this in years. It is usually due to a faulty filter capacitor supplying voltage smoothing to the circuitry connected to the quadrature detector.I would recommend that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair technician.
Thank you,
