Question about RCA 27V520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Armed with DMM, tools, and solder...

I'm guessing that with a vertical stripe and 5-to-10-second auto-shutdowns after powering up... I have a horizontal deflection problem, similar to the vertical version in this problem. This is a hobby set so I have no time crunch, and could order whatever necessary components. Think you could assist with some light guidance?

Thanks!
Jason

    Ah-ha!! The horizontal connector (??) to the yoke wasn't even attached! I can't believe I had not noticed ... but I didn't and you were right, it was a poor connection indeed. I wouldn't have ever noticed if not for your advice, I'm sure.



    Okay, so the cold solder was still loop-shaped (how it came off the yoke's post at all, I have no idea...) so I just hooked it back onto the post, and turned the set on. I am embarrassed to admit I have zero idea of if this would even qualify as a connection or not, if it's one of those things that needs to be fully soldered. To that extent, see below...



    Ta-da! The set stays on for longer than 5 seconds! In fact, it stayed on until I messed with it. The first time I turned it on (well, it turned itself on, after connection to power) I let it sit as-was for about 15 seconds then started hitting the channel-up button. After about 5 rapid pushes, it turned itself off.

    I unplugged/replugged. It turned self on. I let it sit for 30+ seconds then tried the menu button... nothing at all happened.

    So before I go messing with it more, I figured I would bounce the current progress off of you. Is the current display probably just a function of the crappy connection, or might there be something more to it that I should mess with?

    I took several pics you can view here...

    UPDATE #2:

    Ok, so I've got good news and bad news.
    I beautifully resoldered, but it is not yet "fixed".
    Here is what I know:

    I can adjust the SCREEN rheostat (I'm assuming that's what it is) to remove the lines, but they don't appear to be the real problem, now. And, actually, for the first several minutes of being powered on, they will just keep coming back and you need to continually up-just the dial.

    Further, I hooked up some bunny-ears and got reception enough that I could pick between PBS and some spanish channel, BUT I could not SEE anything (the screen was just plain black, as you've seen), OR adjust the volume which was very quiet.

    A friend and I scoured all over looking at the board, but did not see anything obvious. I did take some closeups if you are interested, though. We also checked out all the solderpoints we could find.

    For the first few minutes, rapid button pushing would still result in the set turning itself off. We would need to unplug it and wait a few seconds before plugging it back in, in order to get it to come back on. However, after it had been on for a while (5-10 mins?) no amount of button pushing had any effect.

    So to summarize:
    - The tuner is functional
    - Audio appears to work, but volume unadjustable
    - Video only gives scan-trace on black

    Ideas? If you want to pinpoint and specific areas for DMM checking, I'll hit that right up. Sorry the delay in getting back to this. Since my last post, I had to put my 3y/o dog to sleep, and got dumped by my g/f of 1.5 years. Sigh.

    Thanks for your help,
    Jason

It is unuaual for the horizontal to go out, leaving a vertical line.
The vertical gets it's power from the horizontal circuit, so if the hor. fails you should have nothing on the display. In this case it may be as simple as the hor. connector to the yoke being burned and not making a good connection. In any case I'm sure the circuitry is ok and you should look for cracked solder joints and/or burned connections. The shut down could be due to there being no hor. deflection, causing the HV to go to high, causing the shutdown. You should check/replace any capacitors that are bad, especially those around the HV shutdown circuit.

    You should definately solder the wire to the post, it needs to be a
    solid connection. The lines you see are called Retrace Lines. These are
    caused by the horizontal sweeping back to the left. You should adjust
    the Flyback so these lines just disappear. The two controls on the
    Flyback are Screen (usually the Bottom control) and Focus (Top), adjust
    the Screen control down a little. The Flyback is the black transformer
    with the large red lead and suction cup.

    Does the set turn itself off even when there is a picture displayed?

GOOD DAY; THE VS-45607 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 input/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. MAY BE INTERMITTENT, SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24. CHECK SOLDER CONNECTIONS AT CONNECTOR "DY" ON THE YOKES. 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24. CHECK C411 2200 UFD 35 V AND C412 10 UFD 50 V, BOTH LOCATED ON THE MAIN PCB. GOOD LUCK, big IRISH.
