Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV

1 Answer

Televison problem My television turned off by itself and I turned it back on, but when I turned it back on it tells me that this channel has not been approved for viewing. Change the channel or press OK to enter password and deactivate the parental control. I've tried entering my password but it keeps telling me incorrect password try again.

Have you had any storms come around recently? This sounds like the EEPROM IC is corrupt and probably needs to be changed. If you know how to solder maybe you can change it your self. If your not good at soldering then you can have a pro assist you with this repair Good Luck

My tv is telling me subscription channel unavailable. Why?

The channel itself may be down. It should come back after a bit (from a few minutes to a few hours), if not I would def call your provider!

Check and replace the damaged component/s at its main board. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

There may be a "Power saving" feature on the TV. Check in set-up and adjust time for auto shut off.

Hitatchi 42pd8700 turning itself on

You have main board issues, there is a 3.2 volt regulator on your TV that gives issues and will make the set turn on at random times, replace the main board and it should fix it, or you can order the part for under a buck from China and replace it yourself if you have soldering skills

Unable to get sound on chanel 5 of my 19"

that issue is related to the televison channel itself or your cable provider. If its cable call them and tell them about it, they will come and fix it. If it is Dish Network or other provider the same holds true.

T.V. turns itself off

What make/model is the TV?

If it's in a cabinet or other enclosure, try taking it out - it may be overheating.
