Question about RCA F27443 27" TV
Have two of these monitors in the shop. One starts in about 10 mins, the other takes about 20. The start-up is in two stages: first, in maybe 5 to 10 mins the amber LEDS come on, then 10 to 15 mins later the video on input A shows up. Recapped the power supply in the long one; no help. In both, colorimetry, raster geometry is good once started. There are a gazillion caps on the A board. Once the boxes start and get warmed up, popping the on/off button brings the picture back quickly. Geez, I hate recapping!
The power supply is telling you that it has a short. I think you have a bad high voltage transformer in the horizontal deflection circuit. I've repaired several RCA's with this very same problem. The newer RCA's are vert prone to high voltage transformer failure ! Stargazer

These will run a bit hot, but make sure you have enough compound on it. If the old stuff was dry, use a solvent to remove it and replace the compound with plenty of new stuff.
