Question about Orion Televison & Video

1 Answer

Bad sound definition

I have always had poor sound definition and as I am over eighty I need a crisp tone for voices. The variations available on the zapper are not enough for me. Sometimes for no apparent reason everything cranks up in quality but for some reason just as quickly disappears - this may be due to the signal changing. I also realise that my problem may be partialy due to the positioning of the TV within a built in unit and partially because of the small speakers on my TV28F26 which is otherwise superb. How can I improve the delivery of sound? Do you think I can attach other speakers to position outside the cabinet - if so how do I do it? I do not want a huge bulky thing like a home cinema set up. Yours sincerely Alan Grainger

Hi Alan
As long as your television has an audio output on the back of the tv (usually white and red plugs (RCA connections)) you can connect it to any stereo system with an auxillary input. I have a very small mini system which has inputs so they're available on all sorts of systems.
TV speakers are usually small and have a low nominal output. They don't cover a large frequency range.
If you can find a sound system with a graphic equalizer (these are usually digital now) you should be able to tweak it to your tastes.
Hope this helps

    That could work. If your TV has a Scart "out" you can get a scart connection that comes out as RCA plugs (red and whites) at the other end.

    If the earphone socket works you will need to have your television at about half volume. If it is too high it will distort the sound going into your CD player.

No sound from tv

first you have to check the volume settings tried to make some adjustment and also look the set up in the audio which in mute option. if the settings are ok, then with no any voice is coming the cause is either a bad speaker or a problem in the amplifier circuit. this time you will need to open the back cover of the tv to check the speaker using an analog tester to ensure weather it is worn out.if ok, next will be voltage checking at the amplifier ic if available, if it has 12vdc supply at the pin of the ic. you can check also burnt parts at the amplifier section. if you think you can not do the repair ust leave it to the trained tv repairman good luck.

I am having Akai CT-2180 Colour TV. My mechanic has informed that its sound coil is out of order and it is not available in the market. Can you guide me as to where it can be available

I do not understand it well. Sound coil? What sound coil? There is a voice coil. But it is inside the speaker. If it has damaged, will be very difficult to replace. Speaker should be replaced. If this coil has damaged, you won't get sound from your TV. That is all. Picture will be there.
Ask your technician to give you the number of part [sound coil], that he has detected faulty. Send that number to me. OK?

Zenith tube tv has thin white lines but no picture and I can hear audio

Hello jreese, Hi, Most definitely its a horizontal output problem, your tv has no horizontal deflection to pull the screen vertically, the power transistor that produces the high voltage is bad, this needs to be replaced. definitely you always have sound, the audio section is a separate block from the high voltage block, go look for a technician to have this checked.

Samsung 26" (CRT) HDTV won't turn on...

Since the set works some of the time, I'd first look for poor connections. One thing to keep in mind is when the set does NOT work properly. does that occur more frequently with heat? cold? Humidity? If you can solder, first try resoldering any connecitons on the boards that appear grainy or have rings. If that does not resolve the problem, look for patterns for when the set fails. Those patterns will help to narrow down the possibilities.

Keep me posted,

TV won't turn on.

sometimes holding down the on button and plugging it in works. If not looks like the fuse for the power button is out.

Poor picture, raster & sounds ok

If the picture is fuzzy (out of focus) it may have a focus adjustment on the flyback transformer. Possibly an adjustment available from the outside, through the back. Look for any markings on the plastic housing indicating Focus, Brightness etc.. You can use a small screwdriver through the labeled holes in the case to make adjustments.
If the picture is crisp, but faint or the colors seem washed out it may be the tube is at it's end of life or needs to be rejuvenated. TV shops can rejuvenate tubes but it's not cheap.

Poor color

I am about to say something that may sound stupid but it sounds like you are experiencing this. After years of use you CRT guns in your case the gun in each one of your CRTs(RGB) begins to oxidize and decrease in its ability to provide electrons for the scaning beam this creates a dark picture. Common problem? yes, over time, but for it to happen in just six years is strange but it can. Major Problem to have repaired? No, the technician will use a CRT rejuvenator on all three of your guns and then balance them and you are off and running. Now the other problem that might be occuring low CRT anode voltage. this could happen. Common problem? yes, it is the best choice Major Problem to have repaired? yes and no depending on which components are bad.

Poor sound quality

This is just a guess but the dolby sound on my system is bad however when I switch to regular "stereo" sound it improves. See if your audio set up has a choice of sound and try them all.
