Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

Open Question

My little sister's RCA TruFlat 27" (I don't know its model number) TV doesn't "turn on". We have it connected to cable and we know the wall plug works, we also know the cable's connection works as well. The little red light that turns off when the TV is on, is off meaning that the TV is on, but there's no image on the TV. Not even a "CH3" or "Volume" image. She says that last night she went to the settings menu and turned on "FSP" or "FPS" and about a minute later the TV turned off by itself. So I'm kinda thinking that the "FPS/FSP" is at fault. How can I fix the TV? How can I turn off the "FSP/FPS" setting? Will have have to go get it fixed?

If you have the set off, and the cable plugged into the back of the set for a day or so, the guide plus should come back. It will sometimes take up to 48 hours. If it does not, there is a problem with the set and will require servicing. Good Luck

SOURCE: No Picture - Black Screen. Intermittent Sound

I repaired an RCA same model with a very similar symptom. I found bad connections on the printed circuit board at L411 and L 412 (coils) in the horizontal drive circuit. Give the set a good Fonzie ( Happy Days) smack on the side and see if it comes on. LOL. Bad connections are common with that model. It is probably worth fixing and no, lightning didnt do it.

My little sister's RCA TruFlat 27" TV won't turn on. I don't know it's model number. I have it connected to cable and it works, and I know the wall plug works. The little red light that I press to turn on...

She changed the Frequencies per second (in the Americas it has to be 60 hertz, In Europe, Asia, and elsewhere it has to be 50 hertz). Changing that will cause the tv to self destruct.

How do I connect a cable box to my TV?

Things you will Need!!!!!

cable box
scart lead
power lead
cable connection coming into your property.
and last but not least a couple of minute of your time.

the first thing I would do is connect your cable lead F connector (screw on connector) this should be located next to an external wall. they normally put a horrible box on the wall inside your house.

Once this is connected, connect the scart to the box. this is labelled so you carnt really go wrong. then connect the other end of the scart to the scart port at the back of your telly.

last thing you need to do is connect the power cable to the cable box. Then turn it all on.

when you power the cable box up you might have to wait a minute or two just to let it settle then press the power button on the remote this should automatically turn the correct extension on the tv for you.

Hope this Helps you out

Possessed TV

Either get a priest to do an exorcism..... or it sounds like an internal issue.... likely a bad capacitor. if you are able to do some basic troubleshooting ... remove the back and look for any capacitors with rounded tops.
