He is right to an extent however if you want it fixed it will cost you but the engineer should have been a little more polite about the matter

I have a 27" RCA TruFlat TV. Recently the picture


Something has definitely gone wrong. When picture fails, generally the audio will still play; but since the set is shutting down completely after a short time - it is going to more involved.

Firstly, anything can be fixed. The questions to ask are: 1) At what point do you stop spending money to repair a device that is XX years old? 2) How much would a replacement / upgrade cost?

Given that your set is an older SD (standard definition) with an old analog NTSC legacy tuner, it may be worth while to make the move to a digital HDTV. The picture quality will "blow away" any SD version of the same image / program that your old TV displayed. Unlike several years ago, the HDTV has come way down in price, too. A 32 inch, wide screen HDTV price starts at just $235 as results shown by a search in Google. In order to view HD signals, you'll need either 1) a plain UHF/VHF antenna (and local broadcasters in range), 2) HD cable TV service or, 3) HD satellite service. Cable and satellite providers offer SD service and for slightly more, HD service. Most people are not happy watching SD signals on an HD display - so you'll probably want to change the level of service if you're not using an antenna. Old DVD players only send SD signals, you might consider upgrading to a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players provide SD and HD signals - depending on whether you insert an SD DVD or an HD Blu-Ray disk. The Blu-Ray players, like the HDTVs, have also dropped in price significantly.

See if you can find a place that provides free estimates. If not able to locate, find someone that will apply the cost of diagnostics (ask what the diagnostic fee is) to the total repair charge, and decide to either fix or replace.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thank you.

Yesterday our RCA P61927 picture became concave and 3D-ish. Is it worth spending $250 to fix a conversion problem on a tv that is @ 12 years old?


Please do us a favor and rate this solution after reading.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Tv-raster comes for 2 secondsthen gone.checkedpower supply-3caps bulged,changed no chnge.would it be in p/s?. patrick c.thank you


Check the components in thi mini board ( neck of tV picture tube ) resistors might have gone high in value.check with meter. replace. It is preferable if you open one leg and test. Keepin in circuit it may not give you correct values. Values are generally printed on the resistor body or follow the colour coding.

The TV will bring to turn on but then it sounds like it loses power and makes a high pitch noise and powers off, no picture ever comes on the TV, the screen stays black the whole time. The TV is a RCA...


it could one of two things. The power supply is failing which is most common. Or the picture tube is gone. Both would most likely cost you more to fix than the TV is worth. Call around and get a few quotes. Good luck

Tood my D52W20 to Repair man and he said not worth fixing.


The repair man doesnt know RCA 's very well. The 3 x then out power led is the classic sign of the flyback and cp150 needing to be replaced. You need the flyback # 259296 and the CP150 you can get the flyback and cp150 at the following link with free step by step instructions with pictures on how to do the repair. Its very easy. Heres the link.

Will not come on....


Hello 2154GREAT,

You have a shutdown circuit. The shutdown circuit is working as it should by not allowing the TV to come on if it has a HV (high voltage) problem. This could be caused by a shorted HV Transistor in the Horizontal section or a defective IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer). In any case you will have to get a qualified TV repair person to troubleshoot and repair this problem. The problem is this is not just one of those problems that a person can say change this and the problem will be fixed. These kinds of problems require troubleshooting because other components may have gone bad too.

I hope this helps

Thank you,
