Question about Konka K1938U 19" TV

3 Answers

How do you replace the capacitor that receives the end of the cable wire?

My son, in his haste to disconnect the cable wire from the back of the TV set, pulled too hard on the cord (versus unscrewing it) and damaged the capacitor (the little metal box) that the cable wire screws onto. As such, I need to replace that capacitor, or little metal box that has the male connection that receives the female end of the co-axial cable. I cannot find the part itself anywhere on the web. The part number taken from the back of the part is: CRCR24MDCapacitor. Is this part evene available? IF so, is this the type of repair a novice can do? I would guess I need a soldering iron, correct? If this is over my head, what would it cost to fix. This was a $119 TV 3 years ago and so I don't want to spend too much to fix. Thanks, Mark

Mark, The only thing I can suggest is try to mend it yourself. Unlpug the TV from the mains etc. and remove the back. You should be safe in this area of the inside as it is usually far from the high voltages. (Keep your son away!). Locate the box and if necessary, prise off the lid which is held by springy sides. Try to fit the parts together again; you may need a soldering iron. Be careful not to short anything with the solder, put paper under where you are soldering. You may need a hotter iron as latest sets should use non lead solder. If you cannot repair it why not use the scart or Video (YellowPlug) inputs, ie as a monitor. Good Luck.

    You stated the new sets use non lead solder. Is there an problem in using leaded solder. DOes it cause a problem - or will the soldered connection not work?

If that connector is supose to be connected to the tuner, a long rectangular box, then most likly the tuner will need to be replace, and on a set like this I looked up a rebuilt tuner and the cost will be 58.00 from PTScorp, but is not for a novice to do.. it should be done by a pro so therefor its probably not worth fixing. If its part of a small square box that a wire attaches to the tuner. that part should be available and is know as an antenna block assy. This should be no problem for you to fix.. good Luck ps please dont forget to rate this thread

Just a word of caution; the voltages & currents stored in a Television set are enough to kill you!! No joke.

With TV and cable box turned off, check all the wire connections on the back of TV and cable box by unplugging and plugging wires back in and unscrewing coax cables and screwing it back in. If the coax cables are a few years old, might be a good idea to replace, cause the ends tend to corrode.

I have a Pioneer VSX D412 S receiver with my Pioneer surround sound system The system SUDDENLY STOPPED RECEIVING SOUND SIGNAL FROM MY HD TV


  1. Turn the TV and receiver off and back on. This is called "power cycling" the devices.
  2. Check the menu settings to make certain the TV is still sending a sound signal out to the receiver.
  3. Disconnect the cable, blow both ends out, reconnect, and see if the cable was partially disconnected or has dust or lint interfering with the connections.
  4. Change the cable for another cable that you know to be working.
  5. Use a different source for the TV: DVD, Cable, different channel, etc.
  6. Connect the receiver to another TV.

Which end is the receiving end of a house tv areial


peter_321

One end of the coax cable is connected to your antenna. The other end connects to a coax port on the back of the receiver labeled "TV/Antenna Cable In". All DISH Network receivers have this port on the back except our "K" series receivers. These receivers require a module to plug into the back of the receiver. Connect the antenna cable to this port, "TV/Antenna Cable In", if the receiver has the port available. I hope this helps.

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

My Vizio VX42L is flashing like a strobe light.


Mine did the same thing. Remove the stand and back of the tv. Be careful with screen do not lay on hard surface and scratch. When you take the back off you will see a board on the left side and a board on the right side. They are labeled slave and master. Remove the ribbon cables and take board out. There are 2 capacitors on each board (about an inch long). These are probably all bad (ends bulged a little with black stuff on bulged end). Radio shack has them for less than $2.00 each. turn the board over and you can read the size of the capacitor. You need someone who can use solder wick and remove all four capacitors and solder in new ones. Notice how the capacitors are turned. Each one is labeled with a dash for negative. Make sure you bend new capacitor connectors the same and put back in the same way. Put the boards back in the tv and attach all ribbon cables. Put back and stand on. hook up your power and cable box and you are ready to watch tv with no more strobe. Me, my husband, and son did ours last week. I looked up the problem on the internet, husband removed stand & back, son with the steady hand did the soldering. Family project that went well for once.

My dish 322 receiver wont work 2 tv,to get service


  • There are two satellite inputs on the back of a 322. There may be a single cable going to a splitter connected to these two ports or two individual cables.
  • If there are two cables swap them, if you still get signal on the same input only then the receivers input is dead.Otherwise follow the bad cable and ensure it is not damaged or disconnected. Swap the location on the other end and see if the issue stays on the same cable. If so replace the cable, if not replace the LNB or Switch.
  • If there is a splitter bypass it and connect the single cable directly to the input that does not work. If there is no signal the port is bad, replace the receiver. If there is signal then reconnect the splitter, press menu 6-1-1, check switch, and then test. Allow the test to finish. If the two inputs do not match replace the splitter... Its called a DP Seperator
