Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

My t.v. been sitting for a while and now the light in the power button comes on but the t.v. itself wont turn on.

Back in December 06 I unplugged the tv and moved it. It has sat since then in a spare bedroom unplugged. Now I'm trying to use it and it wont turn on. It worked when I unplugged it and it wasn't dropped or abused. It hasn't been in bad conditions. When I plug it in the light on the power button comes on but it wont actually turn on.

As you say it was ok before it was moved. so thre is a possibility that some parts must have gone loose while shifting .

Wont come on

Instead of just unplugging the TV, perform a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button.  Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If the TV still won't turn on, then it appears something is wrong with it's mainboard since the TV is still receiving power because the standby light is still coming on.  The cost of fixing an older TV's mainboard could be costly or impossible if the part is discontinued.

Won't turn on!

so long as you get a nice little 'tick or click' on the power button just like the rest of the buttons then it is not the button itself.
it is likely some 'safety' circuitry inside or the power supply both of which would require a TV tech. One thing that sometimes helps is unplugging it from the wall for a few minutes.

Tv wont turn on

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
