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!

1/8 inch wide vertical streak on dell lcd monitor grey-green


There are loosed contacts between scaler board and flex-cables, at least those where you have color lines. These cables are glued with anisotropic compound and not such easy to fix, to make it right you shall heat junctions to certain temperature and press the cable down to surface with certain pressure, which is specified for compound used in there - consider as unknown.
The easiest way to get rid of these lines is to press flex-cables with something like piece of foam rubber.
Disconnect all cables coming from the display to boards, take the chassis off, unscrew metal cover from back side of display to get access to the scaler. Now, if you can, connect display back to boards (you may need to take boards off the chassis) and turn on the monitor. This will help you to find exactly loosed spot. Gently pressing to junctions of flex-cable to scaler PCB with finger observe the behavior of color lines on the display. Then put there thin piece of foam and fix with metal cover. That will work for awhile.

Slot where cable fits in - Broke


Hi,

I am assuming that what you are referring to as "metal block" is the tuner assy. and that the "slot/cable receptor" is the chassis mounted 75ohm TV "F" Coax Connector (female). This is easily replaced and the component should be readily available from most electronics part stores.

To perform a DIY and replace this, the TV has to be opened, the metal cover of the tuner pried open, and the F connector replaced and eventually soldered in place.

Incidentally, a nice tutorial on how to go about this is posted here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
