Question about Symphonic WF20D4 TV
Hey, my daughters symphonic 20 inch flat front television has perfect picture, even with the dvd but no sound. Is it worth repairing? what should I do, I know nothing about televisions. Thanks for any advise.
The no sound solution I have found, to come from, believe it or not, a dirty or broken earphone jack...the capacitor is bad and it has a direct link with the sound and speakers...easy fix if you just clean the points...a cap on the other hand might be hard to come by.

Hmmm, really hard to say without looking at it whether it's worth the repair or not. Do you have cable or satelite connected to it? IF you are just recieving signal "off air" in about a year it will not work by itself any more. The nation is going digital. IF it is connected to cable or satelite it will probably still work fine as long as you have an analog converter box of either kind. OR if the basic cable is analog and not switching to digital. (ask your cable company) That should help you determine whether to replace or repair. As for the sound issue it is my guess that it will probably be more complex than simple. Costing $55-$125 to fix. At that rate you can buy another as easily. MY only suggestion is buy a tv that has digital capabilities so regardless you are covered! The small TV's are still pretty cheap even with the new technologies.
