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

    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

The coaxial cable antenna broke on my RCA tv


The part is called a Female Belling-Lee Socket. Radio Shack, or anywhere that sells antennas, CB radios, repairs TV sets, should have one. Soldering it in, is another matter. Be careful.

Want to watch thru tv


Hi
Check and see if you have A/V out jacks on the unit. If you do, they will be yellow, red, and white.
They are called RCA jacks, and if you have them, and the TV has the same type of jacks, then you just need the cable that goes in between. The DVD player normally comes with them, but if not, you can purchase them at any Circuit City, or even Walmart.
