When a fuse pops, no bringing it back. Open the unit and check for dry joints. Be sure to find one there.

My television does this thing now where you can turn it on and 10 seconds later it turns right back off again and when you go to turn it off from the power button it won't let you.

The horizontal output section to your TV has some shorted component/s. Check and replace them. Contact any experienced service technician.

I am trying to install ROKU video streamer into my Sharp TV model 27KS300. Roku says to plug their red/yellow/white RCA cable into the video in ports on your TV. I do this but nothing happens. I am...

Yes these are the same yellow white and red ports that you would use to connect your DVD player. I believe this television has one port in the front and one in the back. I might be wrong but I believe video 1 is in the back and video 2 is in the front. If you have tried video 1 and video 2 making sure you have pressed the video/input button to select the proper one after connecting your Roku then you have done everything properly. Make sure to try a different RCA cable to make sure it is not the cable that is causing the problem. Also try the Roku on a different television because if it is working on a different television with the same RCA cable then you'll know that it isn't compatible with this particular television.

The tv is plugged in but the power isn't cutting on.. I used to cut it on with my old cable remote but now I moved.. and do not have it anymore. I tried to do it manually but it isnt working. Thanks

well, yew can try and pull out the cord 1st...then, wait at LEAST 12 hours and plug it back in! If it turns on, and cuts off 3 seconds later, try to pull tha cord out AGAIN and plug it BACK IN and it SHOULD work! :D :3 i have had multipe problems with my RCA television set, and this was one of them!!

No Picture - Black Screen. Intermittent Sound

I repaired an RCA same model with a very similar symptom. I found bad connections on the printed circuit board at L411 and L 412 (coils) in the horizontal drive circuit. Give the set a good Fonzie ( Happy Days) smack on the side and see if it comes on. LOL. Bad connections are common with that model. It is probably worth fixing and no, lightning didnt do it.

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
