Question about Sony KV-20VM42 20 in. TV/VCR Combo
I have had this tv for close to 8 yrs. IT has been in pretty good shape thus far. But I recently have had 2 issues. 1) About 2 weeks ago, I wasn't able to insert a video cassette in the vcr and still am unable to do so. 2) About 1 week ago, my channels seemed to just stop working (as if the cable is out). The cable connection is good and this only affects one tv in the household. Any suggestions? Of course the second problem is the one I am most worried about. Any advice would help!
The problem you have with the tape is probably one of the nylon or plastic gears have worn or cracked and the mechanism has gone out of timing. the no channels is probably the tuner assy. These Ive seen go out a hundred times. Unfortunatly this is an 8 year old unit and the cost to repair will most likely exceed, or close to the cost of another unit, as I know that tuner assy part #TELH-005A cost around $63.00, and the cost to repair the deck assy depends on what the problem is and then add labor ,your looking at around 150 to 200 bucks. Good Luck
