My Korg DT-10 Tuner is broken. I think it is the power supply. Do you think it is cheaper to repair it or should I just get a new one?


if your pretty sure its a crack in the circuit board from dropping or rough treatment then yes it can be repaired in less than an hour-contact a guitar repair center to see who does there electronics repairs they might take that on if asked , but if it just started to do this with out a known cause its most likely a component failure and that will take some time and knowledge to find cause and repair , on this unit that might not be feasible to do

The coax cable nipple (labeled "RF") on the back


As long as it was a clean break this will be an easy fix. If the tuner got damaged at all, then you will need to replace the whole tuner, which can be a bear if it is a two sided board. You can buy a new connector at just about any electronics store. You will need a soldering iron, solder and wick for the repair. You might be able to just solder the original connector back on if the break is clean enough. You will also need to stick a wire or something like that in the hole to keep the plastic from melting shut from the heat of the iron.

Constant sound static and picture jumps


You don't mention the model, but your symptom is common for many brands of TV. Solder connections inside the tuner go bad and cause the kind of problem you are having.

When the trouble starts, try tapping on the back of the set where the antenna or cable connection is screwed on. You may find this causes it to clear up or at least have some effect. If so, the problem most likely would be cured by repairing the tuner. This involves taking the tuner off the circuit board, opening its cover, and resoldering the connections that are usually visibly cracked.

This is probably not a repair you could make yourself, unless you have some experience with electronic soldering. But a service call would be less than the cost of a new TV. If you decide to go with a service call, make sure to tell the servicer you'd like the tuner repaired. Some techs will just give an estimate for replacing the tuner because of time, but opening and repairing the tuner does not take that much longer than just replacing it. And it saves you the cost of an expensive part.

Broken Cable Jack on c27a24t


You should take this to a service shop to have it properly repaired. They may have to order a new tuner module if the circuit board inside has been damaged.

There are safety issues with grounding and AC mains isolation with this connector.

Servicing this can have serious safety issues. Take the set to a service center if you want it repaired.

For the average TV set, the tuner module is rather expensive. It can be in the area of about $70 to $120 depending on the model. There is about 1 hour of labour involved if there are no problems to change it.

You may be lucky, and the service tech may be able to fix the connector back to the tuner case or have a way to change it.

If the set is more than about 5 years old the tuner module may no longer be available.

Broken anteana screw post


John, the rf connector is not replaceable, have to replace tuner, this involves removing the main board, unsoldering old tuner and replace with new tuner and solder it in. Not rocket scientry if you have the equipment and a working knowledge of how to un-solder & re-solder in the part. You didn`t give make & model number so can`t give you price or part number, if you decide you can do this repair, send me make& model number & I`ll look up part number for you, BMW Rider

Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture


Hi Betty, First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver
