Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

Tv switches off

Hi,purchased television last week and all was fine.this morning i switched it on and after fourty seconds the television turned itself off.i have read through the manual and double checked that i have set it up properly.the timer is set to off so that is not the problem.when it turns itself off it does not go to stand by.it goes dead.to get the telly to come on again you have to switch it off at the wall and after a minute switch it on at the wall then on at the telly.after fourty seconds pass it turns off again.it states in the manual that it may be overheating but it does not stay on long enough to overheat.just before the television turns off the picture vanishes.the big question is,is my brand new telly goosed.your help in this matter would be very much appreciated.thankyou in advance..hallyboys.. Our Samsung telly switches itself off completely after varying amounts of time. Sometimes it lasts for about an hour, sometimes less. When it turns itself off we have to go to the telly, switch it off and back on again. First I thought it is due to overheating, but I doubt it that it can overheat in about 10mins. That problem started about 2 months ago and for some reason sometimes it works better than at other times and when you switched it back on about 10 times it stays on (nothing to do with the room temperature). It's not an old telly, too, maybe about 2 years and it is well annoying.

Last week my Toshiba picture tube style TV wouldn't turn on.....but now it's on and I can't turn it off. New TV in my future?


You might have intermittent ON/OFF switch. Can't think of anything else according to the description of the fault.

Lcd tv light flashing but no picture or sound


If you removed power by turning off power itself to the set instead of turning it off by turning the set itself off---that is not a good thing to do.

When power is restored a surge can and likely hit the power supply in your set---time for a tech or shop to open it---I suspect they will find the standby or main power supply is damaged or now bad.

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"


Mine does the exact same thing. I've had it for a few years no, and it just started doing this. It's so annoying. I don't think the weather has anything to do with it, though. It started switching itself just every once in a while, not it is almost every time I turn it on. Sometimes it takes an hour or so to start doing this, other times it's right away. Help!!

Hi Craig.

Ok are you saying that it runs with no picture & sound is ok ?
Or does it run with both sound & picture then go to standby.

Have tried checking if the Power Plug is fitting tightly in the Power socket? Could be that it is loose?
