Analog Quasar tv keeps turning off.

My old analog quasar tv keeps turning off. It does this in very sporadic increments and sometimes when it's on it wont turn off. The only thing that helps this is when I bang the side of the tv. What could be the problem?

The bang test is a good indication that there are poor solder connections inside the set. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where potentially dangerous high voltages exist even when unplugged, you can fix this yourself. Look at the main board and resolder any joints that appear grainy or have rings. That should resolve the problem. If not, see if there are any changes in the symptoms and update this.

How do I get free local TV over-the-air stations?


The Quasar VV-2002 only has an NTSC (analog tuner). Very few stations with NTSC transmitters are still broadcasting. Only low-power stations were allowed to continue broadcasting an analog signal. Unless you are very close to one of the transmitters, your TV will not tune in the station.

You'll need to connect the TV to a digital-to-analog over the air converter box. (The low-end ones that were free or cheap with the government coupon are harder to find; a few models are still available.) These convert the ATSC (digital) signal to NTSC. Then use an appropriate antenna and follow the instructions to tune in the available OTA signals. Send these to the TV either on the RF or composite Line-in. Set the TV to the appropriate input and use the converter box to change channels.

I hope this helps.

(20" TVs weren't required to have an ATSC tuner until 2007. Since there are reviews for the VV-2002 from 2004, it obviously is an older set.)

How can I replace the outlet for the cables on the back of my quasar SP 3234E TV?


A "freezing" picture sounds like something other than your television. Do you have a cable box or satellite box attached? They fail sometimes and need to be replaced. (You have an analog TV and "freezing" is a digital problem.)

My old analog quasar tv keeps turning off and minutes and sometimes hours later it turns back on. The only thing that helps is when I bang it on the side and only then does it come on in that instance....

Is our Quasar TV (SP2723) a digital or analog television?


That's an analog TV and would need a converter box for the new digital broadcasting.

Camcorder hookup for tv?


I am successfully using my old Quasar VM-D51 camcorder as a WebCam and it works great. My computer has a TV Capture Card with an analog input (I am using the RCA plug on it). The camera has a output connection on the lower right side (just below the hand strap). You will need a mini plug to RCA adapter to make the transition. The software for the TV Capture Card does the rest. Radio Shack has all of the hardware you will need. Hope this helps. Good Luck--buzzard14@verizon.net

Digital


From what I see under amazon.com, it does not have a digital tuner.

But the February 2009 turn off is a deadline for over the air only.
When cable companies turn off their analog signals is a different matter. Some may soon, some may wait until 2012.

The gov't coupon program is only good for converters that handle the over the air digital ATSC signals, not cable's unencrypted digital QAM signals.
