Question about RCA 27V520T 27" TV
We purchased this TV on clearance at Walmart's no booklets and no warranty... The TV was working fine when we went to bed last night and this morning all we get is a sound and no piture... It did this yesterday morning so we turned it back off and then on again and it worked fine... But this morning turning it off then back on doesn't help .... Any suggestions?

Hehehe Its all in a matter of taste I like sony and Mitsubishi. You like RCA you get what you pay for. These sets are good for the L401 in the horizontal drive circuit to cause your problem as well as a blown fuse and a shorted horizontal output trasistor and the flyback transformer. if its anything Im thinking off the repair cannot be done by a handi person and should be taken to a pro and will cost in the range of150 to 225.00 for this repair. good Luck

SOURCE: will not come on
well .. the smell is not good.. that usally idcates high voltage arching... 90 percent chance its what is called a flyback. and when they go the horizontal out put goes...not a difficult repair for technician.. but you have to get right parts

You are likely to have a high voltage transformer bad which is common problem for ctc 195 RCA If you look into the back of the tv it is the white square looking thing about 3 inches across by 3 inches with the large red wire coming from it and going back into the set. Must have original RCA part and must be unsoldered and solder in new one. Not to be done by the untrained. Average cost to come out and repair is $250 to $300. depending on the repairman (Note: the chassis is in a complete wooded chipcore box that will come out with quarter inch nutdriver and unplug two plugs at the top of the box The box or chassis can be taken to the repair shop leaving the screen at your home saving a service call. Hope this helps

What you are hearing is the discharge of high voltage which if it hasn't already failed, will fail if allowed to repeat too often.
The only thing you might try after unplugging the set for a minimum of 24 hours, is to remove the back shell (shouldn't be more than 8-10 screws around the perimeter and perhaps one or two around the connector cutout) and with a clean paintbrush and a vacuum cleaner with the nozzle held close to the work area, brush the CRT (picture tube) free as possible of accumulated dust, paying particular attention to the area around the large rubber cap with a cable leading to the circuit board.
I can't stress enough that the set must be ignored to allow the 25,000 plus volts that are present on the CRT when operating are given a chance to 'bleed off.' This voltage doesn't often kill anyone since it is a short-term discharge with the set off but I have seen it punch a hole through a thumb.
If you are lucky, the horizontal circuit is not in its death throes but only discharging through a layer of typical household crud. Unfortunately, this will not likely help you and you will require a tech to locate the problem. Good luck finding one that isn't dead or retired yet; we are dwindling.

Mines did the same thing. I had to get a new bulb $200 on line and pay someone $200 more to fix some wires that had pulled apart when we changed out the light. But now it works great!
