Question about Quasar SP-3233 TV

1 Answer

Removing playing cards from inside of a TV

My 3 year old daughter discovered that you can slide playing cards down the glass front of a Quasar SP3232 (32 inch TV) and under the plastic housing in which the picture tube sits. She managed to stuff several packs of playing cards into the TV. We're worried that it might now be a fire hazard. I can't find service manuals anywhere for free (some places will charge $15, but I don't know how trustworthy they are). Do you know if I can safely unscrew the back of the TV to remove the cards? (e.g. will it still work if I disassemble and re-assemble it?)

Hi there!

You can certainly do this yourself. However take care not to break the tube neck when doing so and unplug from mains before you start. All TV'S can be opened by unscrewing the screws around the edge of the frame first. Then on the back panel you should find more screws that holds the AV sockets panel onto the cover. Once all screws had been removed, carefully pull the cover backwards making sure that you don't drop it before the tube neck is completely clear from the cover. Remove the playing cards and reassemble the same way, making sure that all sides are firmly slotted before replacing the screws again. You are correct in quoting "Fire Hazard". It is indeed. Regards and good luck, JUS004

Tv continually changes from video 1 to video 2 to video 3 etc... sometimes get black screen as well + menu items. Based on a suggestion, I removed the batteries from the remote but that does not help. This...

It sounds like a switch problem inside the TV if you have already tried removing the remote batts. Try replacing the switches behind the push buttons on the front of the TV. Also, if glass cleaner or some other foreign substance has run down the front of the screen and into the set, this can cause switches to short out and cause this problem. The part number for the switches is 23145227. Thanks for using fixya.

Analog Quasar tv keeps turning off.

The bang test is a good indication that there are poor solder connections inside the set. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where potentially dangerous high voltages exist even when unplugged, you can fix this yourself. Look at the main board and resolder any joints that appear grainy or have rings. That should resolve the problem. If not, see if there are any changes in the symptoms and update this.

20 year old Quasar colour TV (no remote)

That is because the switches of the front panel buttons are stuck or defective.

Try first unplugging power for ten minutes, this probably wont work.

To fix this the TV must be taken apart from an expert, and front panel replaced.

You can enquiry here for parts.

What you can do at home, is getting a replacement remote and using TV with a remote, or buying a freeview box, and watching and changing channels through the box.

You can get a replacement remote here: Replacement Remote Control orReplacement Remotes

My suggestion, if it is supported in your area, get a set top box with 30 channels : Freeview - digital TV from Argos.

Quasar TV

Wow! This is an old message!
If you haven't tossed your set out yet, the problem you have (or had) was a failing vertical deflection circuit. It is (or was) not a terribly expensive repair and if you have replaced it with a plasma or LCD flat panel set, I hope you didn't dump your Quasar since most of the flat panel sets don't last past year 2. Any of these sets have serious problems and I would spring for an extended warranty any any of them; they are TERRIBLE. If you have parked your Quasar in the garage, look for a surviving TV repair and have it fixed.  Some of the parts used in that set will be increasingly hard to find so don't put it off too long. Also, if you do repair it, get a converter box for it too; it will not receive digital TV signals without it and they are coming in Feb. '09

Just spend a few minutes at this site and do some searching on plasmas (worst) and LCD (still plenty bad).

Cable connection

some older tv's only go up to so many may not even need a remote to set up cable tv. if you are going to use a cable box on this tv, put the tv on channel 3.if not, look in front of the tv for a little door. behind it maybe knobs or buttons that can program the channels 1 at a time [+= add - = erase. there also maybe a switch for different cable types [hrc,std, etc]
hope this helps
