Question about Toshiba 27A44 27" TV

1 Answer

Audio reception change

Change TV audio reception from 6.5Khz to 5.5Khz.
This was a UK TV which is now in Malaysia.
Picture is good but no audio reception because Malaysia uses 5.5 Khz as a carrier wave. The UK uses 6.5Khz.
Can I adjust the audio circuitry in the TV to accept the different frequency ?
The TV is a Toshiba colour TV, model No - 2100TB.
Thanks for your time on this for me.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a good New Year.
Best wishes and regards, Paul shaw.

Re: Audio reception change

I will speak genericaly about TV sets in general.

There is more than simple frequency involved. There is bandwidth, de-emphasis characteristics for detection, and depth of modulation.

This cannot be feasiby accomplished. The audio decoding in your set uses phase lock loop circuitry that is crystal stabelized and firmware controled. This is factory burned in to the functioning of the IF module's devices.

You can try changing the IF module to start, but there may be a conflict with the main uPC on the motherboard of the set.

When people change countries we always tell them to leave their TV behind and get one for the local broadcasts.

What you can do is get a separate tuner unit for your set, and feed it with that. This way you will be using your set as if it is a monitor. This is the most feasible and reliable solution for you.

Personaly, I would buy a local TV set, and send the old one to a friend as a gift back from where it came from.

Reception is good but the sound doest work. What all is required for setup?

If there is picture, surely sound too should be there. If not, check whether the audio is muted by its audio settings. If not, check the speaker/s. If found OK, check and replace damaged component/s at its audio output stage circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

I can't find the picture of my play station 3 on this tv. I can't figure out ho to change the tv mode input. I can't find the picture on the tv

If you had this on an HDMI input before you will have to do a reset. Press the power button for 5 to 6 seconds till it beeps. You should be able to select your video output type after that. Don't worry this will not effect anything but your audio and video settings.

Channel Reception

It sounds like a defective tuner or a IF module as well. It may also be a defective capacitor(s) or cold solder joints inside the tuner circuitry. I woud suggest to use a VCR or a TV convertor connected to an Audio/video input to change channels instead of fixing it.
Good Luck.
