Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

RCA 27V412T Hello Experts, I am hopng that you can give me some help on my TV. The above model TV of mine (just a little over 2 years old) is channel surfing without anyone pushing the remote. The ordeal started with the TV turning off and on by itself, then it started going through all of the cable channels from highest to the lowest. The remote will not work the television at all. The TV is doing the surfing on its own. Has anyone had their RCA TV do the same thing? Is there an inexpensive fix? Anxiously awaiting, Ivy L.

Re: RCA 27V412T

I repair these for a living and usually this is caused by the "tact switches" (buttons essentially) on the main pcb. This can be fixed easily by someone who is familiar with working with soldering small parts by changing the switches. The problem is most service shops must charge $60-$100 for bench time on a repair like this which is hard to spend with the replacement cost being so low on this product.

I have a Sylvania 6424FF tv and i cant get it programmed to a univeral RCA remote the codes listed are NOT working

RCA- RCU 500 model universal remote has Sylvania TV coded with. The codes are:

Programming method

[1] Press the button of the device you want to
control (for example TV).

[2] If the device turns on, press another button,
to confirm (for example CHANNEL UP)

[3] If the device you selected (TV) responds,

you will not need to program the remote.

If the device you selected (TV) does

not respond, you will need to program
the remote
There are very rare RCA remotes, with Sylvania TV can be programmed. Just try the above codes with your present RCA remote control. If it does not help, buy the above model RCA universal remote. You will get code list and all other related documents, how to programme it or so, with the device you do purchase. OK.

rca is known for needing new solder jobs and mostly in the tuner area and power section
so it is most likely the the tuner section and probably the power section should get the new solder job done or the tv will start to have a life of its own!
I have a rca 27v412t that started the same stuff but I resoldered and it lasted about 7 months before I had to do it again
and if after that it don't recieve certain frequency's it may need a new IR sensor and possibly a crystal and EEPROM chip as well

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.

Can't get TV onto the AUX channel

You can purchase an RCA universal remote that will let you access the A-V inputs. These only cost about $10.00 or so. Stargazer
