Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-27FS170 TV
When my tv is first turned on, the cable feed is inconsistent, resulting in a scratchy, static sound with no reception. It will cut in and out in a staccato fashion. When I jiggle the cable which leads into the tv, even when the reception is clear, I can create this interference. Once the tv is "warmed up", it usually goes away, but can happen again after any length of time for no apparent reason. I know it's the tv & not the feed because other tvs work with no problem. Maybe there is a loose connection inside? Is it worth my while to have this checked or is it an expensive problem to fix?
I think you have a loose connection inside the tuner. Sometimes this can be repaired by removing the tuner and soldering the connections. Sometimes the tuner will have to be replaced. The cable connector which sticks out the back of your set could be broken loose inside the tuner. This type of problem is very common. You never know when it's going to happen. IT will change with temperature. You need to have a technician check it for you. Stargazer
