Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV
My parents gave this TV to my son. They bought another one at the suggestion of the repair shop person who didn't even look at it. Basically the picture looks like somebody grabbed the middle of each side edge and pulled them in toward the center leaving a convex black vertical bar on either side and compressing the middle portion of the remaining picture. The TV will then eventually shut itself off. I'd especially like to know if this is a picture tube problem. The picture tube is still under warranty but my folks didn't take it in to the shop because they were told that if it turned out to be a non-picture-tube problem, they'd have to pay for the diagnosis AND it would be more cost effective to buy a new TV then to repair. Incidentally, my son has used the tried-and-true repair method of whacking the side of the TV chasis and this will sometimes correct the problem until the TV is shut off manually and then the problem will usually reoccur when the set is turned back on. Often, when he smacks it, the set will just turn itself off. I opened the chasis to check for any obvious problems and attempted wiggling various wire connections and circuit boards and nothing presented itself as the obvious source of the problem.
Your problem is a common one and wht tells me this is when you wack the set. Theres a couple of coils that look like small towers that stand up and would have an L4#### number of some sort. They would be located toward the right side in the middle.. BUT for cryin out loud BE CAREFULL please!!!theres thousands of volts in a tv set. Oh and NO for sure this is not a Picture tube problem Good Luck
