Question about Sony KV-20S10 20" TV
My old set, while still in great condition, has a few problems that have developed in the last few years. 1. The main problem, is that most times the tv gets turned on (receiving via antenna on coax) the picture will break up, with white lines flashing across the screen and static bursting simultaneously from the speakers (see it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7P6SLoVM6A ). This only occurs when using the tuner, and stops after the set has been on for 10-15 minutes. 2. The composite video input is flaky, while it's in use I'll frequently have to get up and use the input cable as leverage to "bend" the jack either up or down until it comes back. While it seems likely that this is a bad ground or broken solder point, I'm fairly certain that at one point I had resoldered everything and it didn't make a difference, so any other ideas would be helpful. Does anyone know if it's possible to add an s-video input? The next model year's set has one, but this one does not. 3. Power switch is faulty - I hear this is a common problem, does the switch need replacing, or can it be repaired? 4. Sound seems "quiet/hollow". The volume needs to be set much higher to be audible than when it was purchased, and it sounds a little tinny. But speakers themselves seem fine, could this be a dying amplifier or something? If anyone has any suggestions for any of these issues please let me know, I'd like to fix it myself if it's not going to cost much for parts. Thanks!
Tv pricing has come down quit a bit these days and like the typical computor printers the ink cost more. In your case the parts will cost you a lot. With all the problems discribed "buy New" and get yourself up to date with that of what you want a Tv to do for you.
