Speakers sound as though they are blown but when I removed them from the chasis they look ok with no tears or cracks. What else would cause them to sound like they are blown?

    Thanks Robotek, I haven't been able to get through ( time and busy phone) to the Apex service department to order new speakers. I don't have schematics so I am not sure I will be able to find the audio chip to see if it has a cold solder joint or bad chip. If I can get the speakers I will try that but if not I may just trash the tv since it is analog. I appreciate your help and follow up. Regards,

Hi Charlie

What happens when you gently press on the cone about the centre where the voice coil connects. If the speaker is scratchy going in and out, it will sound like **** also. This is caused by the voice coil becoming misaligned with the magnet center piece in side the speaker. There is no cure for a fault like this on that type of speaker. Replacement required unfortunately.

Seeing as you have it out of the TV, I would as a confirmation that they are stuffed, hook it up temporarily to another audio source, say a HiFi system or portable stereo, just to check them. don't use too much level as TV's only put out a couple of watts, and some HiFi's.... a couple of hundred :) if it still sounds bad (it wont sound great either whilst sitting in free air outside of its mountings), then it is faulty. The audio output stage of the Tv will have a faulty output chip, or perhaps dry solder joints about the output stages. Something that can be fixed if you are experienced with soldering circuit boards. Hope this helps you to sort it out. Ask me questions if you want, I am happy to talk further to you about the issue. Cheers

Sound only works at high volume

What happens in a lot of these sets is the speakers are tiny--they get used long enough at fairly high volume and the paper in the speakers can tear or even come apart---if able a look inside at the speaker/s would show if this is the case.

Well yes your speaker is damaged, the cone actually has a tear, so audio that has low base or high pitch will cause distoration..

Simply remove it, take it with you and buy a similar one.. Same size, same watts, same ohms and just put the new one in.

speakers are standered only brand names are different..

BTW if you feel that you dont want to purchase a new one, simply stick the tear with duct tape, or you can hot glue it together.. If its plasctic, plastic weld works good(ask for it at a hardware)..

Thanks! My question also would have been about a headphone jack, because the speakers are pretty much blown. Do you have any other suggestions for alternative sound?

If your TV has provided with audio out RCA type sockets, from which you can feed its audio to any amplifier, and can listen trough it. For that you have to buy an RCA connector cable. OK.

Hello, I have a very old mitsubishi color tv, model cs 2657r, which I purchased in the late 1980s. The picture is still great, and I'm trying to connect two small external speakers, though the internal...

Try stripping the speaker wires and exposing it about 1 inch. Then connect the speaker wires in a way that the part that grips or holds the wires touches the metal part and not the insulation. If there's still no sound, Please check the external speakers to see if it's working by using them in another device like a home system or audio player or maybe another tv that has an external speaker port. If not, mostly likely the switches are defective and needs replacement by a qualified technician.

Hope this helps.

You just come aroung the sound decoder section of your tv. Decoder problems may cause the fult you pointed out. Since all the controls are electronically controlled, and all are through sound decoder, which converts sound to stereo the problem must be there. Since sound comes from two channels are ok, there is no problem around sound output. Check for some soldering loose contact, wire socket loose cotanct also.

My RCA 52" tv turns off by itself and won't turn back on. The green power light blinks once and then pauses and then blinks 5 times quickly. What is the problem.

the rca itc22 chasis. microprocessor has detected a safty condition that requires a shutdown of the set for safety. THere is about 25 different resons that cause this to happen. The one thing you can deduced form this condition is that one the main fuse is working and that the processor is receiving power. THe most like cause of this condition is a high voltage problem. the horizontal output transistor, the flyback. look for blown capacitors there is a capacitor called cp150 that common problem. Technician have special computer equipment that reads error codes much like that of a car.

If there are no chasis numbers on the outside you may want to open the cast and check for numbers there. Then you might be able to google the number and find a manual. some TV's willl enter the menu or rest by pushing two buttons at once on the set. This could change your channel selection however.
