Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Watching tv and screen goes black w/no more sound!

It's like it had a heart attack or something....

I was watching my RCA 27 TruFlat TV this weekend and all of a sudden the screen just goes black, the sound dies and now I got no more TV. The quotes I've gotten from repair places are $150+. The TV is only about 4 years old, but it's been in the shop before (not for this though). Could it just be a fuse? Could I fix this myself?

Thanks in advance, JS

You can check only for the fuse if it is busted or not
locate the fuse. check if it open using a tester.......

if you have no experience yet on electronic servicing then you can fix it.

Picture went off on rca flat screen while watching still have sou

That probably happened because something hit the TV and broke the line for pictures to get through, or because a wire in you TV is bad and doesn't wanna work. This happened to my TV every few days. What I did is give it a few whacks every now and then on top of it and the vision came back, but don't try that if you think your TV is fragile. Yes I know its sounds stereotypical but it actually sometimes works.

Well, good luck!

My 27" truflat RCA tv, which is 4 yrs old, went blank

Hi,you will need a soldering iron and a voltage needle so you can test the Ic components on the main board. you will need to test the transistors as well. once you find the bad parts, you will have to order them and remove the bad parts and replace them with the ordered parts by using the iron and solder. this issue will be located on the input side of the main board. you should notice it by the discolorations on the board.

You can take off the back of the tv. Look for the red wire at the top of the tube. Follow it down to the part that it goes into. On that part (transformer) there are 2 controlls. The one marked SCREEN, is the one you can turn up and watch the screen at the same time. If the tv shuts off, put that control back to the original position. If it brings up the brightness, then it is fixed. If not, take to a repair shop.

You may have a loose solder connection on the circuit board inside your set.
You need to have a technician check it for you.
