Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Need to disassemble the unit.

I am trying to remove the casing from ths product, but finding it difficult to do. It seems that the large tires also need to be removed, but with finesse. Once I remove these tires I can get at the screws on the lower part of the case. The TV fell of a dresser, and it seems that the power cord has been pulled out from its connection internal. This is why I'd like to skin the unit so I can inspect what's going on.

thanks for you help in advance.

Disney Cars TV\DVD Combo:
The lug nuts on the tires are plastics caps that hid three screws I was looking for to remove the tires. Once I removed the tires there were 2 screws on each side that I needed to undo and the chassis was gently nursed off.

Upon open the chassis I noticed that the plug wire had a harness on the "business end, it it was disconnected from the circuit board where it "plugged in". Once I plugged it in and then teste to see if the set would turn back on everything was working fine.

How do I make my Zenith TV clear up?

i'm sorry sir but your tv set needs to be repaired, it is not apart of normal operation for the set to exhibit such behavior, furthermore this seems to be a hardware issue and I do NOT advise YOU to disassemble the unit, try and adjust the color via the menu to help but the set needs repair beyond your scope, leave it on if you can, it wont hurt much

Is there a reset button for this tv combo? If so, how is it accessed?

Not to discourage you from repairing this TV. In almost all cases, these TV combos are extremely difficult to repair. Even when these were new, if they had problems you will not get a long lasting repair.I would suggest you find another TV. Please refrain from purchasing any combo sets. Your best bet is to purchase a TV and DVD or VCR player as separate units. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

My dvd drive is stuck I think my son put too many dvds in there ad not it wont open model number is APEX DVD combo GT2015DV

If it has been overloaded with too many dvd's, then you won't be able to eject them. You'll have to disassemble and remove the discs manually, if you are not comfortable doing this, call an electronics shop, most large ones (FutureShop, BestBuy) will preform repairs. Cheers!

Milk spilled on tv remote controller

Remove batteries from remote, to avoid further damage caused from liquid on powered circuits.
Allow the remote with the cover opened to dry for few days. Ideally the remote should be disassembled and the internal parts treated with cleaning solution, or 70% isopropyl alcohol and water. If you do not want to disassemble just let it there to dry up.

If the remote does not work after that , it means that the liquid had damaged circuits.

In that case get a replacement remote.

turn on the machine. use your figure push on the cassette, when you feel the cassette can't go any farther (don't jam it),and hold it there. press the eject button, you may have to try this couple of times in order for the cassette to come out.
the cassette deck need to have the drive belt change.

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape

The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

Safely disassembling a tv

The tube is the most dangerous part. It contains a vacuum and also a very large charge. The easiest way to make it safe is to unplug the end by removing the pc board attached to the back. Once removed, you will notice a large round plastic "pin" that is keyed. With a pair of pliers, squeeze the end of that part. This will break the end of the tube and allow air to enter. Do this carefully and only break the very end of this glass part (indide the plastic). You will hear the air enter the tube. This will effectively remove the charge at the same time.

Remote signal not detected.

Yes, more-so than in a conventional crt based unit without all the extras... You'll need to disconnect many more wires and attachments to get the main board removed then it's about the same job to de-solder the detector and solder a new one in... If you need, take pictures from several different positions in case you stumble getting it back together and can't figure out were a set of wires go to or something. I would order the Ir sensor before you start the job, p/n# 72796410 maybe from Vance Baldwin...

Vcr non-function

Theres no reset as I know but I only had a couple of these types of RCA and both had tv problems.. In todays VCR's there are no belts to replace or go bad. Mostly all nylon gears and plasic chassis. Most of the faults that lie with todays VCR's are bad Capstan motors ,defective tape loading carriages, defective mode switchs or sometimes even bad cylinder motors. If any of the gears break or cracks it will completely throw the unis mechaism out of alighnment and you will need to know from the manual where to set every gear ,lever and switch or it will never work.. Thats why most VCR;'s today are throwaway as you have to buy a service manual spoend time finding out why the mechanism dosent work and then buy the parts to correct the fualt. Good Luck to ya and heres a # you can call if you do decide to take the unit in for service by an RCA guy..,,,00.html
