Question about RCA 27F534T TV

RCA 27F534T TV Remote Sensor not compatible with RCA DVD remotes

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.

SOURCE: front panel button turn tv on and off

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.

SOURCE: Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

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.

Good Luck....

Dvd player won't play

It sounds that the laser pickup unit of the DVD player have damaged. Check and replace it.

I have rca tru flat tv w/built in dvd and i have universal remote I cant get the dvd set on the remote also I cant get dvd to rewind or fast forward

It will be very difficult to get all functions of the RCA device, synchronise with a universal remote control. Just find a code, whic has maximum finctionality. That is all we can do. Just try an other code for RCA TV to universal remote. I hereby send some codes to check. OK

I have a (i think 20 inch) rca truflat tv and i can't find the channel for video and dvd. the manue didn't help and i don't have the guide"

Press menu on your remote. Press "4" for channel and "4" for video input source. In this menu, you can toggle between s-video and regular video (yellow plug) input. The disadvantage is, if you're like me and you've got a DVD player and and VCR (or maybe a video game system) all hooked up to the same TV, you've got to go through the menu and switch the inputs to watch something else. I'm happy with my digital audio cable; I'll deal with yellow-plug video.

Turning off Closed Captioning

On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

Unlock rca truflat tv with no remote

Buy a universal remote and program it for the TV. That's the only thing that will work.
