Question about Sony KV-27V22 TV

1 Answer

Burnt electronic smell even hours after tv turned off

I have noticed the smell getting increasingly worse as days go by. I have been keeping my windows open all day and night but can still smell odor. Is this hazardous to my health? I'm not so much concerned about the tv as I can always replace it, but I have a little one that likes to watch tv in my room...help!

Hello,
Its behavior is not normal. Have it repaired. Fumes are hazardous to your health especially to the little one's health. Think of a fire hazard too. As the adage says :No fumes without fire.

Hope you decide to be rid of the bomb or have it repaired.

I have a 2000 eclipse gs, I wired up an aftermarket jvc stereo system, even added amp and subs, it drives fine and has given me no problems for months...than suddenly the radio started randomly shutting...


I'll give you the correct answer, but I know you're not going to want to hear it.
Every step you did, following discovery of the first blown fuse, was the wrong thing to do, and made a simple short in wiring (or internal short in the radio or amp) now a major electrical issue.
When a fuse blows, that is telling you that there is a short somewhere "upstream" of that fuse. With the burnt wiring or burnt electronics smell, that typically is due to using a fuse (or wiring circuit) that has far greater amp rating than the gauge of wiring or devices that are connected to that fuse/circuit. Once you smell anything burnt, the simple short has now spread and increased in electrical damage.

You basically forced the electrical system to do far more damage by disconnecting the battery, replacing the under hood fuse, and forcing current/electricity to a shorted out wiring circuit or shorted component (radio or amp). People always make the fatal mistake of disregarding what a fuse is intended for, and what it should tell you, and they try to force faulty/damaged wiring or equipment to work by repeatedly shoving new fuses back in (frequently with higher amp rating). This makes what started as a simple problem, much much worse.

Now, your first step in repair/recovery is to completely remove the amp and radio, inspect each thoroughly (and smell each for burnt smell), but more importantly examine every inch of EVERY wire that leads to these 2 units all the way from the underhood fuse box to the components themselves (not easy, as you know). I suspect there may be a loom of wires that now has a major short with burnt/melted insulation.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Smell coming from TV


dear,

yes it can be due to new set. the components are new and have just started working initially that's why they cause smell. if your set is working fine then leave it like that and use it. if it remains after few days or increasing than before then u have to notice it in details otherwise no problem

regards,

Burnt smell


Most like the capacitors on the inverter board or power supply are going leaky.. if you look at the board you will notice that the caps are puffed out at the top. replacing them if difficult and if you don't have the skill to replace them have a good tech do it.. repairing the board is much cheaper that replacing them.
As the caps get worse the set will stop cumming on.

I have a 27 inch rca v. model # 27v513t.


How old is this TV?
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like Module Exchange at 972-298-1212
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!

Convergence adjustments codes with remote control


If your talking about a service menu, NEVER ever unless you have the service manual, go into the service menu and change anything to try to fix a problem the service menu is there to adjust sets at instalationsd and not when a problem, occours and when theres a smell. common sense tells you something is wrong and burnt up. So how is a service menu that you have no clue what to do with going to help you fix a set? Im sorry man but wake up and smell the coffee. what makes you a service tech after your set breaks down.,. Oh by the way there is NO such thing as a "CODE" to fix anything in your set. There is a service menu with settings to adjust things like convergence and vertical and tunning of channels, ect ect. Get a manual and follow it if you want to try a "code". you can get one at http://www.service manuals.net Then you will need to call a tech as your set is a solid state set with No user replaceable parts inside them. Please dont risk your life trying to fix a TV set as there is a lot of High Voltage inside these sets even when they are unplugged.
