RCA 27" TV Guide Plus

We unplugged our 27" RCA TV for a short time last evening and now the Guide Plus feature won't work. We went through the set up, turned the TV off overnight and everything it said to do on the screen - still nothing. Can you help?

Re: RCA 27" TV Guide Plus

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

Menu keeps popping up

If you have the guide plus feature go into the setup for it and when it asks if you have a cable box, indicate no, when it asks if you have a Vcr also indicate no. Last if it asks for the zip code enter all 9, This should rule the Guide feature out of service and you will know if it is your problem or not---it created a lot of problems in sets that had it, especially RCA or GE sets.

I bought a 27 inch tv in 2002 now the tv guide

Here is a whole forum discussing this.

It sounds like you need to reset your local zip code to 99999 then unplug the TV for at least 12 hours. Then plug it back in, reset to your real local zip code and go through the guide setup menus.

Called the cable company..they said they don't block the signal. sooooo..

first..i unplugged the tv from the power source, and unplugged the cable from the wall. left both off for an hour, and reconnected power and cable.

entered the guide set up...changed the zip code from the area where i actually live to the zip code of the cable provider for my area. here on maui, there is only one provider.

used the editor in guide plus to turn on and off the channel line-up according to the published channels listed in my area tv guide.

24 hours later...voila..!! it WORKS..!! good luck..!!

Problem fixed. I unplugged the TV for 20+ seconds, then before plugging it back in, I shorted ac plug prongs together with a metal key to ensure complete discharge. Plugged TV back in and used procedure to reset password WITH ONE CHANGE TO THE PROCEDURE.

With TV turned OFF press and hold <CLEAR> button on the remote while pressing <VOLUME DOWN> button on the TV, hold until TV turns on. When the menu appears DO NOT RESET THE PARENTAL CONTROL CODE as the user guide instructs. When my menu appeared it was in the SETUP screen on the LANGUAGE setting. It was set to SPANISH, using the remote I navigated to ENGLISH. Then using the remote I navigated up to GO BACK. Then I navigated to EXIT and hit <OK> button on the remote. All was back to normal.

Guide Plus on 32in RCA stopped working

Either the hardware has failed or your cable system or broadcasters do not provide this information. Frankly, with this chassis you should be glad it works at all.

Television won't turn on

The beeping sound is the power supply trying to start up. That means there is a short somewhere inside the set. On these TV sets most of the time this trouble is in the horizontal sweep circuit. Sorry but the only way to reset a TV set like this is to unplug it for several hours. But in this case I doubt very much it will work. If you have no solid state repair experience then please call in a certified tech to assist you in this repair. Let me know how you made out. Good Luck

Loud hum when attempting to turn on my RCA F27628 27"TV

could be that the main b+ filter Capacitor went bad and blew up. Also could have been the horizontal output transistor shorted and the flyback poped. In eather case it would be recommended that you take this set into a repair shop unless your familar with HV circuits in tv sets. Good Luck
