Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

RCA on-off switch

My RCA television shuts itself off and then it comes back on without anyone touching the remote or on-off switch. I unplugged it, hoping to "reboot" its brain, and thinking it might have just overheated. No change when I plugged it in again.

I have a TIVO attached, but there seems to be no difference when the TIVO is not attached, so I don't think that is relevant.

This is a reasonably new TV.

Thanks for any help. No one repairs TVs in my town. Since when did they become targeted for annual disposal?

After an inquiry on the RCA website, RCA sent me a 1-800 number. A "resolution specialist" went through a series of questions with me and determined that RCA would replace my TV after receiving a FAX copy of my original bill of sale. It is on its way now. RCA did not offer to pay for repairs but opted to replace the whole TV. Number is 1-800-336-1900.

Shut off itself


sounds like you might have an auto overvoltage shutdown circuit kicking in. The hivoltage goes to high and the monitoring circuit auto shuts down. More than likely trouble is in hivoltage circuitry. If you have a transformer that will allow you to bring up the set slowly without shutting down and you can look to see what's happening.

Rca 27410tyx1 will not shut off


Sounds like trouble in the standby/power up circuit. have you tried unplugging the TV for a half hour and seeing what happens? It might start up but I think this problem won't go away. If you heard a high pitched buzzing it sounds like a problem in the high voltage not letting the start up circuit work. threy are related. The start up circuit waits for the high voltage to stablize and then switches it on.

The little button on the main circuit board may be sticking intermittently causing your set to do this. This little push button was operated by the piece your 3-year old broke off.
