Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

2 Answers

Can only see half the picture

We've had our tv for about 2 years now and all the sudden it is showing only the bottom half of the picture... the top half is black and there is a thick line going across the middle like it has shrunk the whole top half down into that line.  We've tried switching channels and unplugging the TV and back in - get the same results every time.  The picture at the bottom of the screen is clear and the sound is fine.

    We too, after having the tv for 2 years, are only getting half of the picture (bottom half) and the top is shrunk down to the middle line. Very annoying to watch (obviously). Picture at bottom is clear and sound is fine. Do I try to fix myself and if so how exactly? Where is the vertical output device? Where do I buy an OEM equiv. or better like one solution says?

Your problem is in vertical output section.

the ckt which is connected to vertical output section is called feedback ckt.

please check.

1 loose contact in feed back ckt.

2 mostly this problem is due to electrolytic capacitor failure.

3 vertical output  IC or transistor failure.

4 check for proper supply to vertical output.

5  low value resistor failure in v/output ckt  (.in rare case)

IF YOU ARE NOT TECH PERSON PLEASE TAKE HELP.

  1. hope this will help.

Hi: We had this problem under warranty, and tech installed the following to solve it: Parts BN96-02033A, BN96-02034A and BN96-02216A. This solved the problem for 2 years. I now have the upper half going black now and then for 2 to 3 seconds. I am ordering these parts from www.partstore.com and will just plug them in. Better than a new tv.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
