Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV
I have a two year old 27" RCA TruFlat TV. When it is turned on, I get nothing but a black screen. When I thumb through the channels, I occasionally get sound from one that lasts for a few seconds and then "crackles" off. When this problem started intially, the set would turn itself off right after being turned on. For some reason it isn't doing that any more. I'm wondering if lightning or a power surge damaged this set and if it's worth fixing. Any ideas? Thanks.
I repaired an RCA same model with a very similar symptom. I found bad connections on the printed circuit board at L411 and L 412 (coils) in the horizontal drive circuit. Give the set a good Fonzie ( Happy Days) smack on the side and see if it comes on. LOL. Bad connections are common with that model. It is probably worth fixing and no, lightning didnt do it.
