    On my 6427GG the screen will go green and dip in on the sides...then will lose the sound. After about 30 second TV will shut down. Only had the TV for a short period so too early to be having these problems.

Could be a blown fuse inside. You can check this yourself if you are comfortable doing so. Remove the screws around the back edge of the set and remove the cover. Look around on the circuit board close to where the cord connects to it. You should see a small glass fuse. Use a pen or small screwdriver to pry it out. If you see any black inside, it's probably blown. This can happen for any number of reasons and doesn't necessarily mean that there's a problem. In this case, examine the shiny end caps for a number followed by the the letter 'A'. This is the current rating of the fuse. (ex., 3A means a 3 amp fuse). Get one at Radio Shack or other electronics store, replace it and try it out.

If the fuse is good, you will see a tiny wire running straight through the center. If it's good, then there's something else wrong that will require a professional.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

    I had this problem with my Sylvania - 3 years old. Opened it up once to look for discoloration on the board (per another suggestion I found on the internet) - but it did not mention to look for a fuse... and my mistake, I should have.

    I read this solution and boom, right there - look for the fuse. I did, it was blown, and that solved the problem! Thanks 2

I have a 10 year old JCV TV that the backlight is not working, is it worth trying to repair?

You haven't given the exact model number to your TV here. Back light inverter might also replaced along with defective CCFL lamp/s. It wont cost more. Anyway will cost around 10% of the total cost of the TV

The FDA is lock and the TV wont stay on

The lock of RCA TV can be unlocked. You must have its original remote control to do this. If you haven't one, buy a new one or just borrow it from any of your friends or relatives who own the same model RCA TV you have. To unlock it, try these methods. One amoung them will surely unlock your TV.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

Blue,red,green lines on top of screen for couple months. Now tv wont work.

The foldover is because of a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. Given the "new" sympotom of a dead set, I would suspect that the vertical IC has failed. This should be a relatively simple repair for a TV shop. If you wish to attempt a repair of this yourself, update this and confirm your model number and I'll post more details and instructions.
