Question about Televison & Video
I picked up this T.V. with a broken off cable connection. Was told it still worked with S-Video. Tried it and all I got was a blank screen. I am carefully looking at the innards and thought I would ask if there is any thing in particular I should check before I take it to be fixed, toss it or maybe make it a learning fixit project. nothing into it so nothing to lose and only knowledge to gain.
Do you have sound with the blank screen? Some RCA sets had a screwy design problem where an s-video signal wouldn't show up unless you had a cable plugged into the normal video connector as well, so you might give that a try (that is, plug in both regular and s-video cables from the source, then select the s-video input). The broken-off cable connector is repairable (replacement connectors are available) but it means soldering both large and small connections in tight spots, so it might be worth calling a service technician if you are planning to keep the set.
