Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV

Dvd ALWAYS skips!

I bought this tv last christmas and it worked fine... for about a day! After that it has a problem with every dvd we put in, new or old. There will be no scratches at all on it and the tv wont read it. I have tried a disk cleaner, more ventilation to cool the tv down and everything else we can think to do. Please help if you have had this prob. I dont know what else we can do, so any help is great! thanks!

Re: dvd ALWAYS skips!

It may well be the lens of the DVD player, your best bet is to buy a CD lens cleaning kit and play that through the DVD player.

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder

You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

Otherwise Thank you for using Fixya and Have a Good Day!

and Good Luck...

How much would you sell a 36" tv for

Hi iglidewell
In the last 7 years the price of plasma and lcd tvs has dropped quit a bit, so that makes it a popular choice.
But there are still die hard fan for the tube types, so you could ask from around $150 to $200 for it, or a quick sale at a 100 bucks.
Merry Christmas
P.S please do not rate this answer(unless it helps) since this is only a suggestion.

Picture goes off and on...

Most likely your Cathode Ray Tube or CRT is going bad. That model number reflects an older TV. What you are describing is a fairly common problem for that television. If you bump the TV and it improves or gets worse then you know there may be a short.. Either way, I would recommend that you use our Premium Service or use our online resources to find a repair person near you. Good luck.

HT27546 turned off and won't turn back on

Sounds like it is probably just a fuse inside the t.v. May also have a bad diode. I would take it in for an est. if you don't feel good about replacing the fuse. Always have your t.v. unplugged when working on it.

Tv wont play dvd's anymore

Disney = Made in China.... Probably full of lead paint, too!! J/K.. Seriously, though... The laser is worn out and will need replaced, but it is unlikely that you will be able to find a new one, since its a generic Chinese import thats been rebranded. Time for a new one.
