Question about RCA Televison & Video
I have just acquired a Model: RLCVD2480A TV with DVD player. Whenever I put a DVD in the slot at the side of the TV, mirror-side facing me as instructed, nothing happens. I tried pushing the DVD in further, hoping that it would take it, but still nothing happened. I had to pull out the DVD with pliers. The unit is plugged in, and I pressed the source button and then selected DVD. Is there a cord I have forgotten to plug in? What else can I do?

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.

SOURCE: Tv wont switch on
This could be a problem with the power supply. Yes there is a fuse on the power supply & if you have a multi-meter & are competent with electrical safety, you could test it. However, if it has blown then almost certainly something else will have caused it. You might have a short circuit bridge rectifier or faulty chopper transistor. If the fuse is ok, then you will need to check voltages from the power supply to find out what feeds you have. There may be a start resistor open circuit for example. If most of the start up voltages are ok, then you need to look at the line output stage & check if this circuit is getting any voltage supply.
