Re: Television

Hello Lynda Thomas,

Although the connector problem you are experiencing is a simple one, it does require the ability to open the unit and access the problem area. It also requires technical expertise to diagnose if the connector can be soldered back or needs to be replaced. If you are technically inclined, there's agood chance you can do it. Otherwise, a repair shop is your best bet. Hope this helps. Let me know.

I bought a 3 year old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV SW29M50 29 and it did not come with a manual question thereare 5 jacks above the video jacks what are they for i have surround sound speakers how do...

The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows.
(not necessarily in this order)
These are what are called Component Video inputs and is one of the way that HD capable equipment connect to your television. It will not get true HD picture but this input will provide you with a crisper clearer picture.

Good Luck and Happy New Year.....

Your tv has bad solder connections at the tuner and microprocessor or you have a bad eeprom IC...or both. The eeprom IC is to the tv what ram is to your computer...memory. The tuner's RF shield\ground connections and the microprocessor's RF shield connections must be soldered. If the solder job at the tuner/micro has already been done then replace the units eeprom IC and your set will work.
Sounds like not an easy fix ,huh? It's actually very easy if you have any experience soldering. I did about 5 a week for 8 years or so. Every RCA\GE tv made between 1992 and 1996 needed to have their tuners and micro's shielding\grounds re-soldered. There was a class action lawsuit brought against RCA for this.
If your unit made it this long without having this repair done it's amazing...the problem was cracks would appear in the solder ( cheap solder ).
If your unit has had this service done...most had to be carried out when the sets were only 2 to 4 years old... then your sattelite technician recreated the problem just by unscrewing\screwing in the input cable to your set. He broke loose the solder connections again.
If your unit has good solder on the tuner and micro then replacing the eeprom IC will get your unit exorcised!!! Good luck! Please rate my solution...Thank you!

Broken Cable Jack on c27a24t

You should take this to a service shop to have it properly repaired. They may have to order a new tuner module if the circuit board inside has been damaged.

There are safety issues with grounding and AC mains isolation with this connector.

Servicing this can have serious safety issues. Take the set to a service center if you want it repaired.

For the average TV set, the tuner module is rather expensive. It can be in the area of about $70 to $120 depending on the model. There is about 1 hour of labour involved if there are no problems to change it.

You may be lucky, and the service tech may be able to fix the connector back to the tuner case or have a way to change it.

If the set is more than about 5 years old the tuner module may no longer be available.

The little button on the main circuit board may be sticking intermittently causing your set to do this. This little push button was operated by the piece your 3-year old broke off.

Who said it cannot be fixed? You can try and hook an external speaker to wires and test for sound. Maybe audio outs have sound?
