Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

2 Answers

Toshiba CRT Hi - I have a 5 year old 36" Toshiba CRT wired up with surround sound. Not knowing what i was doing tried wiring my hi fi to the same speakers !! I seem to be hearing the laughs now. Turning up the sound on the hi fi, I heard a 'crack' noise from the tv and a 'electrical' smell. Now I cant get the surround sound from my tv. Have i blown the tv amplifier ? If so can i get a replacement and at what sort of cost ? Keith.

Hello krs001,
At best you have brunt out the audio power amplifier of your TV. At worst you have also taken out you power supply that is technically connected to every section in your TV. This right now, is not about replacing a part, it is about finding all of the damage that was done and repairing those items (you notice I said items). I say this because if you caught a break on this you will only have one damaged part and that is the final Audio amplification stage, but I don't believe in breaks or in luck so assume the worst. I would suggest that you take the TV to a repair shop for an estimate, if the estimate is over what you expect, get a new TV and try to repair this one as you look at your new TV. Its good for practice.
I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

Hi Keith,

Your Hi-Fi is designed to produce many watts of audio power. It would be a fair assumption that you took out the output section of the audio amplifier of the CRT.

The best way to accomplish sharing the speakers between the CRT and Hi-Fi would have been to use a switch box, that way both audio sources would be isolated from each other and whatever source was not being used would be put into a dummy load.

You need to find the Part number of the damaged part. If you open the CRT (power unplugged) you will probably be able to find it with your nose, since it was damaged and burned up.

Call MCM Electronics with the part number and see if they can cross reference a replacement for you.

The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows.
Red
Blue
Green
Red
White
(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.....

Hi,
I don't think you can do that if your system was not designed for the additional speakers and a subwoofer. Your system is not a Home Theater surround sound system.
You could add the additional speakers by splicing the speaker wires but I wouldn't recommend it and it would not work like a true surround sound system.
