Question about Sony KP-43HT20 43" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Generic TV question, please help!

As I was disconnecting my component cables, it pulled the thin metal cover off of the back of the TV with it! It only happened on one of the 3, but now its just black plastic with a hole in it on the back of the TV. Does this thin metal cover have to be resoldered, or replaced? Where could I find a replacement? Will the TV work without it? Its the Red Component In. Please help!

Clean bulbs on a D56W136D

Hello. Here are the steps to a perfect cleaning job:
  1. Power down TV and unplug all cables attached to back of TV, including TV power cable. You never want to risk touching components inside the TV that could be hot, including a rear-projection bulb.
  2. 2 Unscrew and remove back cover of TV. Have someone help you if the TV is big or back cover is heavy. Most TVs will unscrew easily, but refer to your TV owners manual for specific instructions.
  3. 3 Locate and unscrew bulbs housing unit. Your owners manual can again be used to find specific instructions on how to properly unscrew bulbs housing unit.
  4. 4 Clean bulb with soft cloth and cotton swabs. Never let your bare hand touch the bulb. The oils on your hands can cause the bulbs to deteriorate prematurely. Be gentle with the cotton swabs to avoid breaking or cracking anything.
  5. 5 Reattach bulbs housing unit.
  6. 6 Reattach the back cover and have someone help you again if you needed help taking the back cover off.
  7. 7 Attach all media devices and power cords.
  8. 8 Power on the TV and begin watching.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Sony KP46WT510 picture goes back and fortto horizontal color bars

The pictures show the result of a bad terminal input board. You can verify this by checking the inputs. Connect devices to the board and try different inputs. You will most likely find this problem on the tuner and component input were your DVI and composite video will be ok. If it is the same on all inputs replace the A board

The backpanel won't come off why? the screws are out

I always miss a screw on LCD Tvs ,they hide screws everywhere. Sometimes they cover a screw with a thin plastic disk so you can't see the screw. Also on some TVs the PC connector has 2 tiny bolts that need to come off. Check around where all your cables go for tiny screws. Also if you still have the pedestal on sometimes they hide screws underneath. once you're sure you have all the screws out gently start pulling/shaking out from the bottom of cover.This usually works for TV 32" and over. Tiny LCD covers are snapped on kinda like how a remote control is put together. You might need a small thin bladed screwdriver to wedge between and gently move and twist when you get near the snap locks.Hope this helps.

Broke the piece where the cable wire goes in...what's it called?

Unfortunately, that coax connector  is almost certainly crimped onto a cable inside.  You might want to pull off the back panel to see if that internal cable is screwed onto another jack on the chassis. If so, you can disconnect that end and substitute another cable, they come in several different lengths and are not critical. Any electronics store will have them.
If it isn't equipped with a connector inside, you will need to have someone unsolder the defective cable and install a new one.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.

Can the hdmi cable cause promblems with tv turning off Toshiba 47 hd 1080p" regza. tv would not turn on for some time until i disconnect hdmi cable from cable box. thought tv was broken, maybe it...

Part of your message I cant really understand but if this helps you out at all, Try to get a new box from your service provider. I have been hearing other people having problems losing signal from HDMI enabled cable boxes, if it doesnt work then just try your standard Component cables, they can still output 1080p from an xbox 360 and thats better than the 1080i you will get from cable. Some TV's just dont keep the power flowing to the HDMI reciever for some reason or another. The component cables shouldn't give you any problems though. Good luck.
