Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Posessed TV! All right, so was just sitting watching the news and the tv shut off. After a few minutes it came back on for 10 minutes. Checked the front, did the whole foil over the sensor, batteries, unplug and letting sit a while. It remained off after re-plugging in and then started a somewhat vicious cycle of scanning for channels and turning off and back on repeatedly. Opened the front, checked everything, checked the power supply (Grandfather repaired TVs so I ran through his checklist) and still turns on and off randomly. The only thing was a while after removing the batteries the cycle stopped. However, it picked back up a little while later. Any suggestion on what I should try next or if I should seriously just trash and get a new tv?

I have a 21inch TV (LG golden eye) which is 10 years old from and now i am facing a problem that when i switched on the tv the standby LED of the tv blinks for a few seconds and then automatically off....

This is line output transformer problems. Before changing LOT,watch any dry soldering is there and also check vertical output ic is good or bad ?by replacement methode.
NOTE- if you know the protection pin, isolate the pin and switch on tv through 200watts bulb seriesly.then watch the symptomes.
Thanking you

My tv shuts off in seconds!

If it's that new call the place that it was purchased and see about manufacturer warranty... It should have a one-year parts and even that will help...
The problem you're describing is likely the center led or prisim. The unit thinks there is a tape in the tape path and attempting to load it. Not an expensive repair but highly complicated for the average person...
