RCA 27F520T no picture problem

I was moving this tv in the kids room to install a cable box and it washed pushed a bit too far out to get to the back and fell about 2 feet on its front... the glass didn't break... but my ankle my have. Anyways, When I got it back up I went to turn it on, I could hear the "click on" sound and the power button lit up red, but no picture or sound. As soon as I hit the channel button on the tv itself the power clicked off and the light goes out. It's basically a new set.. any ideas?

Picture is cutting off parts of images

Very few adjustments except in tech menu which I cannot tell you how to access--danger of killing set if wrong button pushed.

If picture just expanded top/bottom or left/right you may have a circuit problem

I have a TruFlat RCA model # 27F520T have lost original remote and FPA lock is on how do I unlock without original remote? Dish universal remote not working to unlock tv, it will pull up menu but cannot...

Try this -
  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

When I hook up the cable to the RCA truflat tv the screen stays blue. I had it working with a cable box, do you know why it's not working with just the cable?

Your cable system is probably digital, and the tuner in this TV isn't compatible with the system. The cable box output was a regular TV channel 3 or 4 signal the TV could tune in. Without the box, though, your TV's tuner sees nothing. You'll need to stick with the box.

I moved the tv from one room to the other, and the screen is now mostly green and purple. What happened? How do I fix it?

If you have anything plugged into the t.v. via a scart lead such as a freeview box then check the ends are pushed in properly as this can sometimes cause similar problems.

Unusable signal

Usually need a second receiver. Cannot just split signal. With some cable providers you can split the cable before it hits the cable box for basic cable channels.

Suggest contacting Cable Company if does not work.
