Question about RCA F27668 TV

Open Question

RCA TV always start in 'grid' mode -- any way to change that?

Hi -- I have a RCA F27668 TV that always starts in 'grid' mode. My manual is in French, so (since I'm not hip to French) is essentially useless. Is there any way to change the MODE of the screen startup, so that it just tunes in full-screen to the last channel? That mode thing is kinda nice (I guess), but useless to me. Help!

    I don't have the original remote and it is stuck in the guide star grid mode

  • HTMRC Sep 05, 2008

    I also have a RCA F27668 TV that now starts in 'grid' mode. It worked just fine for the first few years. Then one day the Grid came up empty without any program listings in the Guide Plus. We reset the Guide Plus System following the instructions in the Users Guide. It worked for a while but then stopped for no apparent reason. After that it started showing th grid mode periodically at start up.



    Now it also pops into grid mode while we're watching it so we keep the remote close by. We once tried leaving it in grid mode and found it will pop out of grid mode after a long while. One night we left it do it's own thing and found it switched into and out of grid mode several times within a few hours. All the TV Repair shops say that they'll look at it but really have no idea what it could be. Help!

SOURCE: rca 32v432t tv plays,turnsoff,turnson, and stays in autochannel search mode

your going to need to do a resolder of dry looking solder jobs and or poor solder jobs
this could also be your front control board , try disconnecting it and see if the tv stays on
it is possible that the sensor has gone bad or the crystal needs to be replace or worse the EEPROM
my rca 27 in was doing the same thing , i resoldered the board and it worked great for 7 months
so do a resolder of all suspicious solder and heated components
then let me know what happens
also what is your model # for your rca tv ?
also one of rca's kits for repair is some solder and paste , so that should tell you something in its self about rca repairs ( the solder with the paste is supposed to make it handel heat better )
please give a fixya rating so that if you need more help in your tv , I can continue to help you further , thanks

the buttons switches are leaking more than likely this a comon problem in a lot of tvs they start leaking and send a voltage signal to the ics and tv will start doing funny things. Anyway need to replace these switches probley about six of them in all they are mounted on a board behind where you push the power button. Should replace all just to be on the safe side.

You need to replace the microprocessor. GoodLuck there is 52 pins to unsolder and resolder a new one. The price for the chip may bee about $35

My rca F27668 tv fell down and the color is off its purple and blue yellow and green in diffrent areas. how do i fix this?

You need to degauss the TV,

This can be accomplished 2 easy ways i knwo of.

1.> If you have or know someone who has an old style soldering gun, the kind that has a pull lever and looks like a gun and buzzes when pushed, this will act like a degauss wand, simply plug it in pull the trigger and wave an inch or so around the affected areas untill the problem goes away.

2.> call a tv repair shop and ask them how much to "degauss" your tv.

Rca 52 in rear projection... start up menu always on

The setup menu will repeat until it is completed and/or something is hooked up.

On my TV it kept reoccurring until I connected up the wire from the roof antenna, even though I had cable already installed.

Check your manual for setup instructions or if you do not have one, Google the make, model number and "owners manual" to see one online.

Hope this helps. :)

RCA 27" TV F25432

You apparently have a high voltage arc. Possibly the anode lead to your picture tube. Also the flyback transformer could be arcing. If you're not experience with tv repair, you need to have a tech check it for you. The circuits operate at very high voltage and if you get into it you can get a possibly fatal electrical shock. Be careful !!! Stargazer
