Re: TV Dilemma

I have Sylvania 6727FDE Combo tv. All of a sudden it had a blue screen with white lines going through and would just shut off. I turned it back on and the picture was great for about 5 min, then poof it did it again....and again....and again. I even let it cool down, and it still does it. What could be causing this? It 4 1/2 yrs old, and of course the warranty was for 4 years!

I turn the tv on and seconds later it shuts off

You probably have a shorted horizontal out put transistor and your TV is going into high voltage shutdown mode. The horizontal is located by the fly back on a metal heat sink.

Sylvania MTS/SAP tv/vcr/dvd combo turning itself off

could be that either the dvd or the vcr are malfunctioning, usually it is the vcr that creates the problem. If you turn tv on and set vol to low see if you can hear the noise of the motor loading or trying to load,with out a tape inside. It may be a good idea to have a qualified tech repair it, these units are difficult to work on and further problems may come up if you are not familiar with the tv.

Trying to get my directv remote to control this TV but none of the Sylvania codes recommended work any ideas

slide the mode switch to tv, hold down mute and select until the light blinks enter "9-9-1-------1" when the lights finish blinking start pushing push the channel up button. this is a code search. It will transmit every code it knows one at a time. when the tv turns off you've found a code that works. turn it back on, try the volume and see if it works correctly. when finished press select.
most tv/dvd and/or vcr combos won't work with tv codes.
Directv has posted many new codes on their website for combo tv's Go to [ ]to look up the latest codes read the programming section for the remote as there are many customizable features on the remote that most people aren't aware of. good luck

It sounds like the VCR mode switch is dirty. This is located on the PCB, underneath the right hand side of the VCR mechanism. If you do not know what you are doing, I do not recommend trying to clean it yourself. You have to remove the VCR from the board, and pop the wheel off the top of the switch. Use a cotton swab with a bit of alcohol to clean it, and then put a dab of WD-40 on it. Good luck. Also, you might want to tryt to reset the VCR mechanism to the fully ejected position if it is not there already.

TV wont stay on

The vcr carriage was probably damaged ( broken gear or carriage gear, etc ), As for repairing it, it may not be worth it and chances are, you won't find a new carriage for the unit. I have, in the past, disarmed the VCR unit and at least the customer could watch the TV. Thats not possible in every set, but it seems to work in the majority of them. Good Luck

VHS problem, any help?

It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
