Question about RCA F27440 27" TV
I have an RCA F27440 and recently the top half of the screen has disapeared. This started a few days ago when the top half of the screen would disappear and snap back to normal. Now I have only 1/2 of a screen with about 3/8 on the top missing and 1/8th on the bottom but that middle 1/2 looks great. I have read other fixes, and I read that this is sometimes a capactor going out of specification. There are no button on the system except tow hole in the back lablel F / W. Is this something a newbie, but could turn into a wannabe fix. Mind you I have a health fear of voltage but I'm willing try. Mind you I saw my dear dad try to mess with a CTR without discharging itback in the fifties and get singed pretty fgoo. So before I try anything other than opening my wallet some advice please. I have downloaded the owners manual for this particular system but there are no guides to trouble shoot this type of products.
The problem is with the vertical deflection circuit of your receiver. yes you're right sometimes the cause is a capacitor in that circuit. sometimes its an ic which responsible for vertical output and there are many more. so, i suggest that you bring it to a technician if you are not inclined with this job.
