Broken stand on RCA portable tv

I have a RCA portable TV made for Radio Shack, (cat. # 16-3000), that has a broken flip down stand. I checked with Radio Shack and they had only some parts for this, but not the one I need. The stand flips down from the bottom of the unit and is replaceable. It was made in 2000. The only number on it, besides a serial number, is the Radio Shack cat. number. It is a 5" screen. The stand is needed to use it on a table top. Can you help me find this part? Thanks.

    Ok, the serial # is 192896. However, I've located the tv on the above 'index to televisions'. After checking the original box I found,(on the bottom), the upc code with the number 160-3000 above it. The #16-3000 must be the Radio Shack cat # but without the zero. Then I checked every 5" tv on the list and it turned out to match the Memorex Portavision Television/Monitor #160-0125. This was confirmed when under the info for this tv it said 'Features/also: 160-3000'. The cat. no. for the stand is 10689768 and the part no. is HC-6532. Do I get this from Radio Shack or RCA?

    Oh no. I thought that the list of parts for all those tvs meant they were available. That's why I accepted the answer. What is the secondary market, and how do I get a part from it?

  • Storch Mar 06, 2008

    Also, your previous message said RCA parts were available for this.

  • Storch Mar 06, 2008

    Ok, I tried that and only found the parts list I have. Is there anything else I could try?

  • Storch Mar 06, 2008

    Ok, I tried calling Vance Baldwin Electronics and they had no record of part #HC6532 or the model # of the tv. There seems to be several differnent tvs that used this same part.

    can you confirm that part number..doesn't appear here


  • Patrick Michaels

    you most likely get it from the secondary market, as I believe that RS has no spare parts, and RCA hasn't made the beast in years.

    whenever someone stops making a product, the spare parts go through a 3rd party vendor. simply doing a Google search on the part, will reveal who that is..I'd find it highly unlikely that RCA would still be carrying this part direct...not their usual style

    hmmm..sounds like it's time to retire that unit, perhaps...happens in the migration from one technology to another. of course, you could try ebay and find out if someone has an older one that's not working any more, right?

Hi there Storch
Have you tried to repair the broken part? Sometimes when parts are scarce, that is the best approach. You could go to a repair guy near you and he could do it for you for a small charge if you were not happy about you ability to do a good job. I could talk you through it also. :)

regards
Graeme

    I would fabricate a new one out of 2mm acrylic with steel rod fixed(2 part epoxy) to it sized correctly to fit to the mounting holes. probably take 30 mins to fabricate and fit, problem solved:)

    regards

Have a 5" portable jensen tv/radio - no picture - how to attach a converter?


If it's one of the newer models that has the input for an antenna on the back then you can go buy the adapter at radio shack that allows you to hook it up with coaxial with either a converter box or a converter box with an antenna. The attachment looks like a 3.5 audio jack.

Casio EV 550 B portable TV 3" screen many of "us" with portables are wanting a "FiX" instead of landFILLing our sets when the switchover comes apon us. Is there a DTV FiX? costs? Are there portable DTV's?...


I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that connects to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
 
If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at
 
http://www.digitaltvtrainer.com/national/showme-battery-tv-converter
 
There are a few battery-operated converter boxes available, but for do-it-yourselfers, this web page also contains instructions for building a 12-volt converter box power supply.

I have a Sanyo TV from approximately 2001-2002. And I'm trying to connect rca cables so that I can hook up my old PS2 with an input box [I think it's called.] but there's no rca connections in the back....


Ok if you want to hook up RCA cables to that TV and dont have a adapter you can buy a RF MODULATOR ( Wall-mart / radio shack for $20.00) and use that to conect to TV and the ps2 will connect to that ( this will also let you use a DVD player with the TV!)
Instructions in RF package!

Where can i get an external antenna adapter to fit my tv/dvd from


Well I thought I had one of the mini-jack to F type connector cables ordered but then it became Discontinued at PacParts.com. However, if Radio Shack still carries those F-connector to mini-mono earphone plugs then with another F-type Quick Connect you can make one with a length of RG-*.*/U cable with F-type screwon male connectors. Almost every one has some of those cable or satellite pieces laying around or stored and with proper adapters can fashion one for their portable TV's.
