Question about Sylvania 6520FDF 20" TV/DVD

2 Answers

Sylvania 6520fdf Came home and my wife says that she can't turn on tv and that it was making a noise so she unplugged it. When I plugged it in, all I heard was an extrememly high pitched whine. Will not turn on. Hmmmm. What to do? You betcha....take it apart. Disassembled and plugged in and the best I can tell is that the noise is coming from/near the high voltage transformer, possibly a cap near by. Is it worth taking to a repair person? --Mike

Hi this problem your having is the most common problem with tellys of this type youll find that its going to be either a transistor located near the transformer (fly back) or it could be the transformer but most of the time it is both that need replacing.
Most repair shops will replace both anyway as it is best to do this its not the kind of job a novice could do as it requires alot of soldering.
It is worth repairing and shouldnt cost to much as it is such a common fault so go ahead get it fixed let me know if you need further assistance ok

How do I get to the video mode whitout a remote..sylvania 4819lt

Hi, try unplugging the TV from the AC outlet, then plug back in, and turn power on the TV, you should see the set up menu almost as soon as the TV starts showing a raster. Select "set up" by using the existing keys in front of the TV, you will need to experiment with different keys untill you are able to go in to the "setup" select the input you desire after that. good luck.

Check the outlet to be sure you have power to it. Then check both ends of the tv power cord to insure that they are actually plugged in. good luck.

Hi! Simple question; answer hard to find. Does a Sylvania 6520FDF (20" color TV/DVD, purchased new in late 2006 or early 2007) need a digital converter box? Thanks for any assistance. Bruce

unless the information that comes with the tv says it is digital ready, NO!! and you will need a converter box.The reason is that for almost two years before the conversion, the /tv people knew what was going to happen and they were getting rid of the 'old' stock.The TV must say it is digital ready.
p.s. I looked it up for you...SORRY!!
"" The manufacturer has informed us that this model has been discontinued. However, it might still be available for sale.""
p.s.s. Now I know for sure that it is not digital ready...get the converter box.

This is a bit to vague of an explaination to properly trouble shoot you problem. Although most sets are fixable, it depends on the value of the set to you. I have seen problems like this be as easy as just a fuse and all the way to a bad fly-back transformer. If you have a volt ohm meter, you could check the fuse and see if it's the easy fix ( make sure you always unplug the set before checking anything in the set ). If the fuse is bad, you can simply change it and your ready to go. If it's anything else, it may require more extensive board work and I would suggest you seek professional help.
I Hope this helps
