Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

During a hotel stay, my daughter accidentally knocked the co-axial cable out of the back of a 42" flat-screen Proton LCD TV and now the hotel is trying to charge us $850 to replace the entire TV. The invoice says the "Rf Connector pulled from TV" and says the Main RF Input Board had to be replaced. The bill says: Parts $516.65 Labor $300 However, what the repairperson told the hotel at first was that the ASC tuner, the place you plug in a Play Station, was pushed back into the TV and couldn't be repaired. I'm in the dark as I never saw the TV, and the hotel says the repair guy already took it away. I'd be grateful for any advice.

If the RF Input board and the ASC tuner broke off, it has to be replaced. Because the RF board is a part of the printed Circuit Board (PCB) and not just a single component that you can just change.

What I could suggest is to look for that repair person and get the whole motherboard. Then searh for Pycon Technology Inc. near in your area. Pycon Tech is a company that could repair broken or defective PCBs. They could probably fix that one out and then give it back to the repair person for repair.

I'm not sure if Pycon could repair this board, but they are professionals and engineers that deals with Printed Circuit boards.

I hope this suggestion would help.

Westinghouse 32' flat screen tv wont work with cox cable receiver

You haven't stated the type of signals that comes with your co-axial cable; analogue or digital. Anyway, you have to retune the TV after connecting it properly with Cox-Cable receiver with TV.

Screen is blank showing only different colours, audio only

The LVDS cable is loose at the T_CON side. Simple fix. Take the back of of your set. It is the cable on the top middle that has a whole bunch of little twisted wires. With the set off take out the connector and the plug it back in tight. Turn on set and you should be back to normal.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.

I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

How do I hook up to Dish Network?

depending on the type BOX you have for it. If you have an HD Dish Box there should be an HDMI port on it. You have two on the TV. Unless you want to use Components RGB cables. That would look better than Co axial cable which is your last choice

Connecting a DVD/VCR combo to LCD TV

The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.

Can a flat screen TV with ASC tuner pushed inside be repaired?


I am an installer for a nationwide big blue store. The inputs on the back of tv's are fairly fragile. In my opinion, if the tuner to tv interface is damaged, ("In the process the ASC tuner, or internal tuner, was pushed back into the TV and the technician said it couldn't be repaired.") it probably is not repairable. Or at least, not economically repairable. Cheaper to replace the whole tv.

On the up side, $850 is pretty cheap for a 47 inch flat screen.
