RCA HAS A KIT! which includes different solder and some paste for a better solder flow!

I resoldered mine without knowing that and it lasted 7 months before it started up again.
so now I'm on the way to givin it a total resolder on every component that creates heat , hopefully that will last another 7 months at least , also note that I replaced R033, R034, and C230 , if this continues to do it again I'm going to replace EEPROM and x001( crystal at 8.000mhz) and the IR sensor. I'm guessing that rca must have known that the sets heat up and the solder joints become bad ,I belive that the flyback and other hot components will do the same thing , as I also belive most of the models of this type chassi will encounter the same issues comming from bad solder or dried solder, if problem is not corrected soon then EEPROM the crystal and other components will suffer severe dammage, then the set is just another piece of history.
good luck to those who own one

Rca 27v412t tv picture only in middle of sceen

It is the fault with some components related with its horizontal scan output section circuit. Just check the circuit part; and check the components I've marked in red here by its horizontal scan output circuit. Beware; you're going to touch the most dangerous part of its circuit. Keep it in mind always.

T.v. turns on and off by it self also will do auto search by itself

The microprocessor ic is breaking down or the pad switches behind the buttons on the front of the set, "one or two are bad" disable the front panel by unplugging from main board, if problem goes away use remote to control set.

Why does my RCA model# 27V412T turn on and off by itself? It's does not stay on long enough for me to reprogram the remote.

Hi There,
Sounds like your Startup Relay is intermittent. Contacts are closing (tv on) then dropping out (tv off). Worn or burned contacts do not make a good connection when they close and start to burn and overheat causing the contacts to open. When they cool down they may make contact again for a very short period. You need to replace the Start up relay. I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

You have a bad vertical deflection IC and/or bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. The parts are inexpensive and can easily be replace by a service technitian.
