20 Most Recent RCA 27R411T 27" TV Questions & Answers

If it's the TV on the picture, It would be cheaper to by a new set. I repair TV's and old school picture tubes are very hard to find and not worth the time to replace. Flat screens show better and use a 3rd of the energy.

It does not. You need a digital converter for this T.V.

If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the

TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL- on the TV' s front

panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. E nter

a new password next time you access the P ARENT AL CONTROL

Try that. The manual can be found here... http://support.radioshack.com/support_video/doc72/72759.pdf ... in case that doesn't work. Please leave feedback or let me know if you need further assitance!

This is usually caused by bad solder connections to a part called the vertical output integrated circuit. A TV service shop (if there are any in your area) could go over the connections, probably for their minimum labor charge. (I've been out of shop service for a long time now, so I have no clue what a typical labor charge might be. Sorry!) If other parts turn out to need replacement, which sometimes happens, they could give you an estimate for the repair.

You have bad capacitors in this TV. I Have not repaired this model for quite some time. I do remember there are few caps to look for. I don't remember locations. But look for a 160 volt to 250 volt cap at 1 Mf. Look for a 200volt 100MF and a 200 volt to 250 volt 2.2Mf cap. And be sure to check all grounds to ICs attached to heatsinks. And there might be a 63 volt at 10Mf that is bad as well. These are all rated at 105 degrees. Anyway these are very good clues to get started with. I don't believe you have any bad ICs yet.

Power surges or nearby lightning strikes can destroy electronic equipment. However, most of the time, damage is minimal or at least easily repaired. With a direct hit, you may not recognize what is left of it!

Ideally, electronic equipment should be unplugged (both AC line and phone line!) during electrical storms if possible. Modern TVs, VCRs, microwave ovens, and even stereo equipment is particularly susceptible to lightning and surge damage because some parts of the circuitry are always alive and therefore have a connection to the AC line. Telephones, modems, and faxes are directly connected to the phone lines. Better designs include filtering and surge suppression components built in. With a near-miss, the only thing that may happen is for the internal fuse to blow or for the microcontroller to go bonkers and just require power cycling. There is no possible protection against a direct strike. However, devices with power switches that totally break the line connection are more robust since it takes much more voltage to jump the gap in the switch than to fry electronic parts. Monitors and TVs may also have their CRTs magnetized due to the electromagnetic fields associated with a lightning strike - similar but on a smaller scale to the EMP of a nuclear detonation.

Was the TV operating or on standby at the time? If it was switched off using an actual power switch (not a logic pushbutton or the remote control), then either a component in front of the switch has blown, the surge was enough to jump the gap between the switch contacts, or it was just a coincidence (yeh, right).

If the TV was operating or on standby or has no actual power switch, then a number of parts could be fried.

TVs usually have their own internal surge protection devices like MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) after the fuse. So it is possible that all that is wrong is that the line fuse has blown. Remove the cover (unplug it first!) and start at the line cord. If you find a blown fuse, remove it and measure across the in-board side of fuse holder and the other (should be the neutral) side of the line. The ohmmeter reading should be fairly high - well certainly not less than 100 ohms - in at least one direction. You may need to unplug the degaussing coil to get a reasonable reading as its resistance may be 25 or 30 ohms. If the reading is really low, there are other problems. If the resistance checks out, replace the fuse and try powering the TV. There will be 3 possibilities:

It will work fine, problem solved.

It will immediately blow the fuse. This means there is at least one component shorted - possibilities include an MOV, line rectifiers, main filter cap, regulator transistor, horizontal output transistor, etc. You will need to check with your ohmmeter for shorted semiconductors. Remove any that are suspect and see of the fuse now survives (use the series light bulb to cut your losses - see the section.

It will not work properly or appear dead. This could mean there are open fusable resistors other defective parts in the power supply or elsewhere. In this case further testing will be required and at some point you may need the schematic.

Try this turn tv off, press and hold + on the volume for about 5 seconds, then re-enter a code. ..hope this helps...

Are the A/V cords plugged in correctly? Know that the wires and jacks are color coded and OUT should always go to IN and vice versa. Also check the cords and jacks for damage. This may solve your problem, let me know if it dosen't and I may have other solutions for you. Good luck to you!
