Question about RCA F27650 27" TV

1 Answer

Horizontally Outstretched So my RCA F27650 27" TV thinks it's a wide screen. It annoys me very much, because when playing the Playstation 2 on it everytime, it's frustrating to know what I'm doing and where I'm going. I've gotten as far as into it's Service Mode and was very disappointed to see that it did not have any adjustments on how to shrink it. I've corrected all of it's Vertical problems, but it just seems that there is absolutely no way to adjust the Horizontal view. I'd be sad to throw it away because of this one problem. I've picked it up from a yard sale, for free, and the sellers told me that it was just fine until somehow it went like this. The original remote to the TV is long-lost, the manual too, it was just the TV itself. I hope there is someway to correct this, there must be a way. Is there something I'm missing? I cannot afford a repairman to come over and fix it, I'd just like to gather more information and get this fixed myself.

Hello Toasty07,

This problem is called blooming it is caused by poor high voltage regulation. To fix this problem I would suggest that you take the TV to a TV repair shop because the section requiring the work contains very dangerous voltages and a great shock hazard exists. Just tell the TV repair person that you believe the Tv has a HV regulation problem and to concentrate on the HV section of the TV.

Thank you,

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player


How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.



What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.



2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.



3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.





Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

Edge of the screen is cut off when using PS3/Xbox360/Computer


Well you did not included the gaming system so its impossable to diagnose but try to go into the game system video properties and set the resolution. if its a older gaming unit like beyond old like nintendo 64 then I am stunned you may have to set you TV to streach the sceen as its not to wide screen formats. If its like a Xbox360 you can order a special cable to go HD and this will summerized this problem do not use HD mode if you not using a HD cable set it for standard resoultion on your TV..

Turn tv on, shuts immediately off.


Same problem with my 28 inch 16:9 CRT Sanyo. I usually fix it by cutting the power to the outlet and then it works fine. Had it into the repair shop - and of course it never acts up there...

How do I set the DVD picture to Full Screen as opposed to Wide Screen?


That is the way the DVD makers intended it to be. The TV cannot be adjusted to change that if it is a widescreen or "letterbox" movie.

tv screen is stretched too wide comin back from a week vacation, i turn on my rca f27650 to play xbox and i realize that my screen has been stretched out of proportion! i cannot see sides of the proper picture. i swith it to tv mode and the channels on the top left only show half of the first number! after trying to play around wit the menu settings to see if anything can be done to play wit the parameters! i went on my xbox 360 because i knew that there were settings in there to change screen fittings! what i found as a success (somewhat) was that when i changed the xbox screen format from normal to widescreen, the picture was formatted and actually fit the screen....kind off! the screen was no longer stretched and i was able to see the whole screen. even wit this somewhat succes, unfortunately the corners of the image were warped and appear compressed to fit format! i have tried troubleshooting from online but i have been most disappionted. ~ i have kept it unplug for hours / days to try a reset.fail ~ i have researched on how to acces the service menu for my model so i can adjust it but i seem to be finding only instructios for the generic rca service menu! the steps: hold menu, press release power, press release vol up, release menu i havent been able to get to the service menu at all! i thought that i might have already activated it but the screen jus didnt let me see it so i went and tried to acces this generic service menu on my other rca tv! it was a truflat rca model f20t10 ! similar guidpluss menus and all but i believe a bit newer! even on the rca f20t10 i was still unable to acces any service menus!...if you got any info on how i can fix an fit my screen please please let me know! thanks in advance
