20 Most Recent RCA F27636BC 27" TV Questions & Answers


I can't select TV/Video input on the menu

If you have the original remote (RCA Universal with red and blue buttons), you can switch from the TV tuner to the audio/video input with the INPUT button. It is to the left of zero on the numeric keypad, above the red CLEAR button. Press it again to get back to the TV tuner.

Picture is to large for 27in

If model indicated here is correct either a problem in the Vertical circuit of the set or an adjustment.Almost any shop can take the set into the service menu and adjust vertical size a bit to correct if not circuit problem.

There are a few possible reasons, the first being that the tube has burned out inside the TV. But before jumping to that conclusion I would check to make sure that your A/V cables are connected properly (video being the yellow cable, or if you may be using S-video which is a black cable that has 4 steel pins and 1 horizontal black plastic or metal one) and make sure that you have the cables plugged into the same numbered input: ie. Audio is in audio 1 and video is in video 1 rather than audio being in audio 1 and video being in video 2.
Also be sure that you've selected the right input from the remote or from the television itself.

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.

On many televisions with built-in tuners, you have to tell the tuner whether it will be connected to cable or antenna, since the RF spectrum is different for these.  Make sure you have cable selected (assuming you are connecting to the cable service) and then try the autoprogramming again.

Picture height adjustment

The screen parameters were factory set by firmware programing during production.

If over time the picture became out of spec, this is due to some components that have changed in characteristics with use and age.

The fix is to have the set properly serviced. The tech will have to troubleshoot the set to find the defective parts and change them.

Where is the inverter and LED driver on a RCA Roku television?

Hi Kristy, the backlight inverter is part of the power board however I doubt this is the issue, most likely you have at least one LED button that's open, they wire these like Christmas lights, remove one bulb the string goes dark, I own a TV service center and we get hundreds of sets with no backlights a year, about 95% of the time it's the actual backlights that have failed as the inverter section seldom gives issues, you will need to remove the panel and defusing panels to get at the lamps, be VERY careful handling the panel, it's quite fragile and static electricity can damage it, we have the proper gear to handle it in our shop, what Ive recommended for home repair is put shoes on then put a few an inch of water in the bath tub and get your shoes wet before removeing and replacing the panel, this will eliminate static damage. Good luck!!

My Roku flat screen tv the original remote broke so I bought a RCA 3 universal remote and I can't get it to connect

Question edited for clarity. It is a 'Roku', not a 'ruko'. Roku is a streaming service and not a television manufacturer. The put their badge on a television made by an established maker that also has their streaming service built in, or with a set top/side dongle. https://www.roku.com/en-ca/products/roku-tv https://www.fixya.com/support/r29872378-universal_remotes_no_facsimile_remote You buy the remote SPECIFICALLY for the television you own. That is done by the model number. https://www.google.com/search?q=roku+television+replacement+remote ..

What is the code for a naxa DVD player ND-861

To program your RCA universal remote to control your Naxa DVD player ND-861, you will need to use the correct code for your device. Here are the steps to follow:

Power on your Naxa DVD player.

Press and hold the "Code Search" button on your RCA universal remote until the indicator light turns on.

Release the "Code Search" button.

Press and release the "DVD" button on your RCA remote.

Enter the code for your Naxa DVD player. You can find a list of RCA remote codes for Naxa DVD players in the RCA remote manual that came with your remote or by searching online. For example, the code for Naxa DVD players may be 3394.

Press the "Enter" button on your RCA remote. The indicator light on your remote will turn off if the code was entered correctly.

Test the remote to see if it's working. Try playing a DVD and using the remote to navigate the menu.

If the first code you tried didn't work, repeat the steps with a different code until you find one that works. If none of the codes work, it's possible that your RCA universal remote is not compatible with your Naxa DVD player.

Having trouble with RCA tv vertical and horizontal lines can you help?

Generally horizontal lines are caused by a bad panel, there are COF IC's that give issues a lot of time and they aren't replacable.

My Kef psw2000 power on but but no sound,when i plug in RCA cable standby turn on,I think it's IC,pls what are the IC number for Kef psw2000

First off, even with the IC numbers are you going to be able to replace the faulty parts, in most cases it's not something that can be done without a soldering station, plus hot air station and advanced soldering skills, it's not like soldering a couple wires together. If you're able to replace them take the numbers off the top of the chips and cross reference them.

The actual LED strips have failed, chances of it being a board issue are slim, replace the backlights and all will be well

Rca wont turn on what do i do I tried every thing but it won't turn on

If your RCA TV won't turn on, there are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the power source: Make sure that the TV is properly plugged in and the outlet is functioning properly. You can also try plugging in a different device to the same outlet to see if it works.
  2. Check the power cord: Check the power cord for any damage or fraying. If you see any damage, try replacing the power cord.
  3. Try a different remote: If you are using a remote to turn on the TV, try using a different remote or try turning it on manually using the power button on the TV.
  4. Check for any error messages: If the TV is showing an error message or blinking lights, refer to the user manual or contact the manufacturer for troubleshooting steps.
  5. Reset the TV: Unplug the TV from the power source for at least 30 seconds, then plug it back in and try turning it on again.
If none of these steps work, it may be a more serious issue that requires professional repair.
