Question about RCA F27442 27" TV

1 Answer

RCA F27442: no picture.

My RCA F27442 started acting up about two months ago. Screen suddenly goes blank, stays blank for about 3 minutes then comes back on by itself. Problem getting worse and worse, from once a day to every half-hour as of this writing. No problem with sound.

1. Repair it myself ? I'm a newbie, know enough to unplug TV first but can't tell "HOT" sections from "COLD", or anything about resoldering or cleaning glue off coils.

2. Get professional repairs ? Excellent TV is well worth saving. Any recommended TV repair firms in Los Angeles (Western San Fernando Valley) ? What do I tell them ?

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at
