Question about RCA 27F534T TV
I've owned my 27" RCA TruFlat SDTV (27F534T) for several years now with no problems. I do, however, have a frustration.
I also own an RCA DVD player, and the DVD player's remote interferes with the RCA TV's remote sensor. Shouldn't these two be compatible? Using the right and left arrow buttons on the DVD remote to navigate a DVD menu changes my TV's aspect ratio, pressing up on the DVD remote changes the TV's channel setting, pressing the DVD remote's power button will simultaneously turn the TV off, or on, and pressing the DVD's menu button also brings up the TV's menu.
I thought that perhaps this was a problem with my specific RCA DVD remote, so I tried the remotes of 3 different RCA DVD players with my RCA TV and ALL 3 REMOTES had the same problem. Clearly the TV's sensor has a problem. No other RCA TV in my house (there are 2 others) have this problem. My friend also owns this model TV, my DVD remotes interfere with his 27F534T TV too.
Does anyone have this model RCA TV and an RCA DVD player? Is there any Universal Remote available that will correctly work both the TV and DVD player without interference? Can a repair shop replace the remote sensor with one that's compatible with RCA DVD remotes?
This issue is a minor frustration; I could move the DVD player somewhere else. But I shouldn't have to deal with remote compatibility issues when both products are the same brand.
If both the remote and the front panel buttons do not work, I would be thinking that it is a problem with the TV's main uPC area. This type of fault can be involved, and would require factory level service where the fault can be properly analysed.
I can tell you in advance, that this type of fault can be expensive to service.

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

There should be a button on the front of the TV that says TV/VIDEO or INPUT. Turn on the DVD player and put a DVD in it and press play. Press the TV/VIDEO button until the picture is present.
