Question about RCA F27676BC TV

1 Answer

TV dropped My kids were goofing around and dropped the telly. Now I have one third of the tv that the colors seem fine (about 8 inches in from the left to about centre) however near black and white everywhere else. Is this something that is repairable without too much cost? Or am I better off buying a new set. We still use the tv but I find it very unpleasurable at this time. Our second tv is our computer with tv tuner card. But we have an older Syncmaster 955DF CRT (21") monitor and the picture is only really clear at the smallest frame.

Re: TV dropped

That's still repairable here some tips need to consider as follow:

1) Intermittent loss of syncronisation, both horizontal and vertical
The surface mounted power transistor on the teletext module requires resoldering. As there is evidence of scorching on the board the use of a more substantial component would be indicated perhaps with small heatsink
2) Picture displaced vertically, picture too high or low
This problem was cured by entering the service mode (menu then 4,7,2,5), then pressing the green fastext button to access geometry settings, selecting VP1 (vertical position) and adjusting as necessary
3) Vertical line at the left of the picture
Replace L506 on A board, replacement part number 1-407-366-00
4) Problems with screen size
Look out for 2 x 2.2uF electrolytics (sometimes red in color)
5) Vertical height oversize
The eprom was found to be faulty (nvm)

Please let me know any update.

What's problem when display blue color

It seems you have no connection with the channel. I think you need to double check your on the right channel and that you have your freeview/channels paid and attended for. This to me seems like a connection problem but it happens to me on my tv if I go onto the wrong channel e.g. DVD channel instead of normal telly channel.
Hope I helped Dr Reed

Current value of a jvc 32 inch color tv 8 years old

The street value would be 100-150 dollars. If TV is a cheap model or abused or very used, you should pay less.
Consider a Sony or a Toshiba in tube style since all are cheap now.

36 inch RCA 36v430t

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

Insignia IS-TV040919 color problem

The tv has been dropped or banged around, you can try to get a degaussing coil and fix the colors, if you cant pull them back out than it would need a CRT/Picture other words the tv would not be worth anything.
