Question about RCA F27615 27" TV

1 Answer

RCA 27' F27251WN

Hi, Our problems started with picture lost, after contacting or cable company, going thru restarts and resets, they were removed as the cause, I also switched out antennea, no results, I fianlly took the RCA to a repaire shop three seperate times, the 2nd time they repaired the horozontal hold, but the picture still got lost in snow, upon third attempt, they are sure it's my cable (I'm sure it's not, having another TV in the RCA's place with same wiring and set-up, the set worked perfectly, nonstop, off-on, jiggle cables and wires, still the set worked perfectly). Went and picked up the RCA from repair (3rd time) set it up, hours later same problem, jiggle cable connection repeatedly, then the piture returns, so for a week thats where we're at, I suspect that that TV repair shops inept ability is more financially motivated, or there repair people are just plan Dumb! There's obviously something broke on the mother board and or the cable input connection, or something having to do with signal path. Anyway, what would you suggest.

    Screeching sound and snowy image. Playing with the cable wire brings it back temporary. It's getting worst.

First thing you did not mention anything about the sound, if you are getting good sound .if you are not getting good sound associated with the problem you are having.the tech who you carry the set to ,did not check the tuner and the IF circuit there is where the sound and video originate from.if the sound is good then they should have looked in the video circuit a ic conrols that section.i would advice that you take it back and mention it to them.these set are the one that have thier tuner built on the board.and like to have that type of problem sometimes soldering around the tuner casing will solve the problem.good luck,any other question contact me on my email [email protected] or on this same website.

My Opal does not start. How do I reset my Opal?


The procedure below is the full troubleshooting when the RCA Opal is completely irresponsive and does not complete initialization.

Try first holding down the Power/Menu button for over ten seconds. This is called soft reset, and will reset the player to default factory settings. This reset will not delete personal files.

Depending on the model you may also have a reset button. In that case hold down the pinhole switch using a paper clip for more than ten seconds to perform an hard reset. It will take one or two minutest to restart the Opal after this reset, as files must be reinstalled.This reset will delete files and personal settings.

If that does not work, it means that system files are damaged. In that case you will need to reinstall the Opal firmware. Firmware for some model may be available online, but better calling or contacting RCA and asking them to provide you with an updated firmware for your unit. If the wrong firmware is installed the Opal may result damaged.
RCA can be contacted at the number listed on Opal documentation. Number in US should be: 1-800-878-5779 (RCA Audio Products Repair Centers and Warranty Info).

You can also get the firmware asking a question online. Use the following link: Create an Incident or ask a question.

See also: Information on RCA Opal M4001 MP3 Player.

To update firmware follow procedure below:

Download the firmware upgrade file.
Hold down the play/pause button for about twenty seconds .
Hold down menu button for more than 10 seconds
Keep holding play/pause button and attach Opal USB cable to computer at the same time.
The firmware upgrade will start
If you get an error saying that Windows cannot write to the Opal drive, that means that the Opal internal drive must be re-formatted. In that case go to Computer, click the right button of mouse on the Opal, and choose Format from the dropdown menu.
After formatting, restart both units, and restart firmware upgrade procedure.

Note: The procedure above must be used when the Opal is not starting at all. When instead the opal is starting, but it is not recognised by the computer, procedure will be different. In that case test the player on a different computer. Test different USB cable.Restart computer and Opal. Reset computer by disconnecting power cord, and eventually removing battery for five minutes. Try using System Restore to restore the computer to a date before having the problem. Reinstall Windows Media Player. Check System and USB hardware settings and driver on computer..

Stuck on 1 channel

Get a cable box from the cable company it will be cheaper than repairing the tuner. Then you use the tuner from the cable box instead.

I have an old RCA XS TV and cannot figure out how

Alot of the older RCA chassis required you to press 00, 91, or 92 to get to the external video input.

"snow sound on all but two channels" but perfect picture

in the menu setup there is an autoprogram that sets the channels.
is there not an issue regarding analog signals?

"snow sound" on rca tv, perfect picture

Although your picture is perfect, I would think the fine tuning is slightly off. This can also be to do with the cable box frequency setting. Call out the cable people & get them to check the box & the setting up to the TV.

I pressed the source button by mistake, lost the picture with message 'No Signal'. I kept pressing it again when the picture came back but it is now fuzzy. Is there something else I need to do?

one thing you can do is reset the TV. You can go to menu, setting, then scroll down to the bottom and choose the reset all. The second thing is make sure that the source you have hooked up to the TV has good connection. Best way to test is to use a DVD player using HDMI or component cable.

Rca F27251WN TV

you mqay need a video converter because it is in another country

RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV Reset

Buy a new remote.
Look around the tv and find the menu button.
Generally there is a separate power button.
You can also download the manual:

Unusable signal

Usually need a second receiver. Cannot just split signal. With some cable providers you can split the cable before it hits the cable box for basic cable channels.

Suggest contacting Cable Company if does not work.
