Connect the device with rear sockets, and select the input. As there is rear jacks to your TV AV-1 & AV-2 selection must be there. Enter into its Menu option, surf through, come to input selection window. and select proper selection here. Switch ON both the devices before selecting inputs. When correct input selection have been done, the logo of your external device will appear on screen.
If you are saying no red: The model indicated here Recoton Advent Advent Q1435A TV is a 14 inch set.
first it may be cheaper to replace than repair--That said if no red look to the small circuit board at end of picture tube (it plugs onto the tube).
It will have either individual output transistors or a single IC.
What (if only one color missing) I would look at is the bottom side which faces to the rear---a circle of solder connections--possible one is broken--there will be one for each red, green, and blue--not always easy to see but if any of the solder connections look cracked or even broken loose-----
Actually I just repaired one of these "similar" units. If you remove the backing of the tv, unpluged of course, Theres a panel facing you if you are looking at the right side of the TV. This panel pops off easily with a light prying motion all around. You'll see where the connector broke off and can solder it back together with a small pin type tip. Solder the center pin to the center probe first,hold in place with needle nose pliers. 2 people are better than one at this. Then lay down agood bead of solder around the perimeter of the connector. Clean up any solder that may have dropped and put it back together, you'll be ready to go in about one hours time. Let me know how it goes!!!
You can purchase an s-video to composite video connector to view your Dell computer's television output on your sharp CRT television, though the image will be a bit blurry because of the connection and CRT technology limitations, though streaming video probably can be seen just fine. An example of an s-video to composite video connector can be found here: http://www.svideo.com/svideorca.html but you probably can find a cheaper priced unit somewhere else, maybe even at radioshack. I hope this helps!
I just fixed this on my TV. With the small front input board removed from the tv, solderside up and the rca jacks pointing away from you begin.Looking at the board in this position locate RCA video jack. Directly in a row are 2 comparitively large solder pads. The pad furthest from the RCA jack and closest to you has a thin trace that runs from the noted pad to a solder pad on a small surface mount component marked 750. That small trace is not making contact on the solderpad that is soldered to the RCA jack. To fix it take a small metal pic or tiny flat screwdriver and scrape away some of the PC board coating right on the trace where it meets the solder pad, and place a small solder bridge on it. Thats it put it back together and watch TV. Thanks to all the members here who post solutions. Frank
Radio Shack MIGHT have the part. That little box was the connector assembly and is soldered on to the circuit board. You will need to unsolder the broken connector and solder in the new one. Either that or duct tape and be careful?!
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
I assume you are speaking of the sensor (on the TV) which picks up the remote box commands, or the infrared LED (on the remote) which transmits the commands. Which ever the case, it sounds like a broken & intermittent solder connection where the device solders onto the circuit board. Most of problem I've seen is the remote box end of things.
You will need a solder iron, solder, and a little soldering expertise to fix this. The remote box might have one or two screws, otherwise the case is usually a snap together, and sometimes frustrating to get apart.
If the TV end of things, then you must unplug the set, take the back cover, and carefully remove the main chassis, and note where the sensor is.
It has always amazed me how many "F" connectors get pulled out of tuners. I know because I've replaced hundreds, usually successfully, saving the cost of a new tuner. You need to unsolder the tuner from the board and remove the side cases. If the tuner board is not damaged beyond repair, (if it is you have to get creative), a new unit can be soldered in place. Put everything back together and you will be in buisness. New "F" connectors can be purchased from MCM Electronics at www.mcminone.com, part #215543 for $2.50. I always use a new connector as the old ones are usually trashed. Reliability is compromised if you don't use a new one. Technically you do not need the cable hookup since you have composite inputs. For my money I would just hookup a VCR (with a tuner) coming out of the VCR composite jacks into the TV composite jacks and use the tuner on the VCR leaving the TV in Aux, or whatever they call the composite inputs, and call it a day. It's you're choice but using a VCR tuner is faster, easier, cheaper and if you want to play a VHS tape you're already hooked up! If you are a traditionalist and want the TV 100% remember to be safe while working on it. Good luck whichever way you go.
To save cost on this model, as with many others they are sharing the
S-Video input circuits with the composite input circuits at the entry point. There is a kill switch incorporated with the S-Video jack in the set.
Even if you put an external switch box to the set, the composite video will not work unless the S-Video plug is pulled.
Your best solution is to get a TV set with a true multiple video input.
The other alternative is to have a sat receiver with an external input for throughput feeding.
Another alternative, but not as good quality as S-Video, is to use your sat receiver in the composite mode to the set, and have an external switch box to select one or the other.
