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 ?

    I have the same problem. One day last year it "snap crackle popped" I unplugged it and turned on my little 13 inch. This year i got around to taking the cover off and take a look. The only thing I found was a small 125amp fuse blown on the board. No other signs of burn or meltdown. I thought I would get lucky and replace the fuse. Now after reading all these posts I'm not sure that will correct the problem .

Switches on then off then on then off...


The first thing to try is to see if your set has loose conections,you need to remove the back and tap in diffrent areas of the chassis to see if it reacts,if it does you'll know soemthing is loose and it has to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service you will have a place to start checking but if you are not too familiar seek the assistance of a servicer,the repair should not be expensive.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
