Have you checked the power plug, sometimes when the power plug is not on securely on both ends of it, that can happen. It could also be defected wires on the inside of your tv. So check both ends. LOL
God Bless!

SOURCE: 35 in. GE tube TV volume issue

The front panel control assembly, or the circuit area for this panel most likely has a fault condition.

I have also seen some of the button switches fail on the control panel.

RCA Model 27V412T Trying to fix the screen size. The edges are cut off


When the picture gets smaller that means the high voltage being applied to the picture tube is failing. The flyback transformer and the horizontal output transistor are the likely parts that fail. Power supply capacitors that have domed tops are suspect too. Parts and labor for a TV that old may surpass the price of a new TV.

How to take of the FPA on a RCA 27V412T


Hello
To unlock the FPA lock of RCA tv, do the following. One amoung the process will surely unlock your RCA. You must have its original remote control handset to do this..

Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

Intermittent audio...picture fine


Does this model have a headphone jack? If so, plug a pair of headphones or external speaker into the jack, turn the volume to an acceptable listening level and see if the problem goes away. If so, the headphone jack may be bad.

RCA 27V412T FPA LOCK ON & REMOTE LOCK


If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.
