Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Tv is going crazy!

I was watching tv tonight when all of the sudden it shuts off. Pushing the remote button doesn't help, so I get up and turn it on myself. It starts with an auto search. Can't seem to get it to stop, so I let it run, but it keeps going and going. I have to unplug it to stop it, wait a few seconds and plug back in. Does fine for about 30 minutes when all of the sudden it scans again. Now it's to scanning every 3 minutes. WHAT THE HECK???? I have owned it for about 2 or 3 years and this is the first time I have had this issue?

This is a scrambled function processor and it would need to be re flashed by an rca service technician to fix this problem.

While watching TV the volume will suddenly mute.

Hi. Were you able to get this remote working again? I am going to suggest you try a firmware update, since you didnt mention that you had tried that. I find that usually solves weird problems like this one. You can do that by going through the following steps:

1. Connect your remote to the computer.
2. Launch the Harmony Remote Software, and log in.

3. Click "Downloads" at the top and click "Firmware"

4. The remote will go through the firmware update.

5. Select "Yes", and click NEXT to update the remote.

Voila! Hope this can help.

I have a Harmony HD set top box powers on and off when selecting the Activity, "Watch TV." Help.

Make sure you're pushing the "mode" button first so it doesn't think you want to turn it off. some remotes will confuse "tv" with "tv power" if the "mode" button isn't utilized.

Check to make sure the channel down button is not stuck. If it is not the button is probably defective. Mits has had a lot of problems with the buttons.
