Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Rainbow screen then powers off

I have an odd problem, the TV powers on for about 5 seconds, and all I see is a rainbow screen, no picture at all, it gets brighter, then darker, then shuts off, there is sound, and if you hold down the channel button the TV stays on, even if you're on a channel with picture, you see nothing but a colorful screen, and then it shuts right off. Any ideas at all? I know it's not a degausing problem because the TV wouldn't shut off if it was, I already checked that anyways. Please help me out!

The degausser cricuit may be the fault. The degausser coil may be staying on, and thus forces a shut-down. It is also possible to have a power supply fault that can cause a similair effect.

The set will need shop service.

Rainbow screen aiwa tv,, screen shows different colors like rainbow// brushing a magnet infront of the screen fixes the issue temporary


Picture tube is magnetized. Manual degausing is required. already you have done this.

Since you say it is reappearing, you have to check the following.

1. Relocate the TV or relocate if you have placed any tower speakers
or home theater speakers close-by.

2. Check whether auto degauss functioning OK. In the MENU
check whether you switched off auto degauss option. If it is OFF
enable it to ON.

3. Finally re orient the direction of your TV and watch the rainbow
effect. Switch OFF TV, wait for 20 mts, and again switch ON.
Repeat the process. It should disappear.

Magnetic toys or any other devises using magnet will cause this problem.

My son was bouncing a small ball against the screen and then it went to looking like a rainbow. Would this be the picture tube?


He may have caused some type of damage to the picture tube, but usually rainbow effects happen when magnets are present. Perhaps the ball became charged with a large amount of static, which then discharged across the tube, damaging the controlling circuits.

Has rainbow lines on tv screen


shadow mask is warped. tv might have been dropped. crt is bad(picture tube). try deguassing it. if you dont know what that is take it to your local service center. the rainbow effect is a magnetic field of some sort. try unplugging and move to a different location. could be a speaker too close to tv.

I dropped my 27in phillps magnavox


if this is a distorted kind of rainbow aura affecting the colour, you need to de-gauss the screen - a good tv repair man will have the mains powered magnet to fix this - and shouldn't charge alot.

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow


Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.

The description of the problem points to the picture tube being bad because of the rainbow colors,as far as the white lines you might have an open resistor in the crt board,a qualified technician should take care of the problem if the set is repairable and He will know as soon as he sees it.Good luck.
