Question about RCA F27442 27" TV
I have an old Zenith tv, which I've had for about 15 or so years. All of a sudden, when I plug it in (the switch has been broken for about a year), it would not come on, no sound, picture, nothing.
Now, it comes on about once every week or tow, it works perfectly. The rest of the time, either it makes a sound, but no picture or it makes no sound and no light on the screen whatsoever.
What could it be? Is it worth fixing?
I'm going to guess that you have an old zenith color console. And it could be any number of models. I would suspect one of the most common problem in this set would be a 35volt 100mf cap that is bad. Location would be near the powerline regulator. Replace it and there should be another cap near that one, I cannot remember its value at this time. And always suspect those caps with values 160olts or 250 volts with mf of 1, 2.2 , and 4.7. Generally speaking this will correct many many zeniths. And to ad to your frustrations the picture tube in zeniths go bad at the same time. It is in your best interest to buy another tv. If you may....paint the entire tv gray and place it at Carhenge. We may like to view it!
