Question about RCA 27V520T 27" TV

1 Answer

27V412T turns self off

Set will power on, work fine for a random amount of time from a few seconds to a few minutes. Screen shrinks to top of screen usually, turns to a rainbow pattern, not the typical test pattern, then powers off. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Same TV set, probably the same problem...

    I actually saw this set on the sidewalk near the dumpster for the apartment across the street from my house. Thinking they probably would have just dumped it if it were complete trash, I carried it into my yard and plugged it into an extension cord. Result: the set turned itself on upon being plugged in... and displayed only a half-inch vertical white stripe until it turned itself off about 5 seconds later. I turned it on twice more... and each time it powers down after about 5 seconds. Then I figured it was google time, and here I am!

    I'm an engineering MS, and would love to just try fixing it myself if any expert could be of a little guidance. Thanks!

You have a bad vertical deflection IC and/or bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. The parts are inexpensive and can easily be replace by a service technitian.

that set is highly rated by users .. it first came out in early 2009 (i think) so you might check to see if any warranty remains ... the display is illuminated by several lamps .. each lamp has its own high voltage inverter .. all the innverters are powered by an output of the low voltage power supply (often 18 volts)... i would suspect a problem with that low voltage power supply.. either a bad capacitor or a thermal issue .. .. ..

Powers off intermitantly


Good Day;

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR LEAKY C9A60 470 PF 1000 V PART # 154P400030, PARALLEL TO D9A57 ON THE POWER PCB. 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR OPEN FUSES F9A04 AND F9A05 PART # 283P043090 ON THE +24 AND -24 VOLT LINES. IF THE FUSES ARE OPEN THE CONVERGENCE OUTPUT CIRCUIT WOULD BE SUSPECT. OR your TV has "COOLANT" (ethylene glycol) on the circuit boards. This fluid comes from the CRT's (picture tube) this fluid is used to keep the CRT's cool, such the name. This fluid from the CRT's leak when TV is on for long periods of time, the chamber expands and the seals leak.

One can remove this fluid by using "acetone" & small brush. The fluid is hard to see, use bright light, they spots can be smaller then a DIME. Also, the fluid can corrode the parts and traces on the boards. To protect the TV in future place heavy plastic or thick cardboard over affective area, make sure TV has proper air flow around TV. Good Luck, big IRISH.

When powered off, TV turns on and displays white screen, then shuts off


I ended up exchanging the TV for a new one that works fine.

After a few minutes picture shrinks to single line on screen and then powers off


Since the set works initially, there are likely poor solder connections at the vertical IC. If this is not addressed soon, the IC will fail and need to be replaced. The vertical IC is a small flat IC with about 11 pins or so that may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace teh IC. Feel free to post the marking here so I can verify you have the correct one.

SCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER 1 MINUTE


In electronics dust has nothing to do. cleaning will not solve your problem your problem is due to trouble in vertical section. mostly it is due to electrolytic capacitor in vertical section is defective.it is common problem. also check supply to vertical section. "THE SCREEN SHRINKS TOWARDS THE TOP OF THE SCREEN FOR A FEW SECONDS BEFORE THE PICTURE TURNS UPSIDEDOWN THEN TURNS BLACK." is called fold over. regards thanks
