Question about RCA 27F500TDV 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

2 Answers

Cable jack Somehow while moving this TV, I still don't know how, I knocked off the cable jack on the back of the TV. Anyway, I took the back off the unit to see what was involved. Is this part something that I can have fixed... Will it be worth the cost to have it replaced?

The RF jack is solder directly into the tuner module and as long as it did not break the circuit board inside that it connects to, it can be repaired . Takes a lot of heat though to solder the jack to the frame of the tuner. Sometimes I use 2 irons to get it hot before the plastic guts of the jack melt too bad. Also is sometimes hard to cram the jack back into its mounting hole, may need to file it out some. The makers don't solder these on they are just pressed in and crimped which is why they break off so easily. I recommend using the push on type cables to avoid this problem. Don't forget to solder the center conductor into the tuner board.
Hope Ya Fix It!

If you have other inputs besides coax in on the back of the tv, use one of them. this is assuming you are using a cable box. hook up the red, white & yellow from the cable boxes audio/video out.you would just have to put the tv on a aux/line in or video input. if you are not using a cable box, you can use a vcr. hook up the coax in, then the rca audio/video out to your tv. this would probably be an easy repair for a pro. you can call one for an estimate since you know exactly what is wrong, but why spend the money if you have other inputs.
hope this helps.

Speaker is off


Most of these combo units do not have a speaker ON or OFF setting but look anyway.

If the set has a earphone jack that may be the problem--see if works with earphone plugged in.

The socket the jack goes into can get flaky as when jack is inserted it turns the sound OFF.

Also put your ear right to the speaker to see if anything at all is heard--the speaker could be bad--but check the above first.

I'm assuming you are getting more than two digital channels into the converter so the problem lies in how the converter is connected to the TV, which I presume is via a coaxial cable, right and you have the TV tuned to analog channel 3 or 4, right?

If that is all true, the RF coax cable solution is not going to work. The few channels you were getting, either side of 3 or 4 is just RF bleed.

Try this, acquire somehow a A/V hookup cable that has 3 RCA male jacks on each end. One cable will have YELLOW ends, This is composite VIDEO. There will be two others colored RED and WHITE (or perhaps black). This is for the AUDIO. The outputs on the converter and the inputs should be colored the same way. Hook the two up, noting which INPUT (1, 2 or 3) on the TV you have plugged into. Not sure of the exact number your TV has. Make sure you change the TV to INPUT whatever. You may also have to re-scan your converter. As long as your antenna is connected correctly gto the converter you should gain a lot more channels. Let me know how you make out.

Ok i need to know how to hook up a dvd player to the tv. I need to know now. Thank you nina


Is there a cable antenna connection on the back?

If so, hook the DVD cable out to the TV cable in.

Put the TV on channel 3 or 4.

There may also be RCA jacks so you can hook the audio and video up direct.

I pod to tv


Salutations DDAWG123,

Depending on how you wish to connect your Ipod there are several cables that you could purchase.

This is a standard cable that you should be able to connect to your audio jack which will allow you to view movies and listen to music on the television:

Or

This cable should connect through the imput jack and would connect to your telvision and allow you to charge the unit:

Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player


We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.
