Make diagram on paper of the old socket . Carefully unscrewing old socket from wall, DO NOT CUT WIRES, copy color of wires (if any) and where and how meny wires on the paper. EXAMPLE:: you have just pulled old socket away from wall, look and see how meny wires, colors if any, and where they are in contrast to the socket.(left wire=blue, middle wire=black, left=yellow, connector that is up or down=color. MARK these wires on paper, and if possible TAPE a piece of paper with a nember[#] on the wire and place that # on the paper corresponding to the wire in socket wall.
Take the socket to electronics store.NOTE;; IF STORE does not have a exact replacement ask store for SIMULOR replacement.Show the diagram you made to help you buy the right replacement.
Good luck

Used Princess tv and dvd combo for 6 mths wrapped in plastic put in box and stored for one year. toke out of storage and now it doesnt work! how do i replace or get it repaired


if no any power indicator at the front panel, the first thing you can do is tried to plug the tv in other wall ac socket. if still no power, unplug the cord then check for a broken wire. if ok, at this time you are going to remove the cover of the tv to check weather the fuse at the power supply get blown.

Hello
Either your DVD players' laser pickup unit or its strip wire has got damaged. Laser pickup unit is one which reads the disc we put into it, and strip wire is one which connected between the main circuit board and laser pickup unit assembly. The strip wire damage is common for all cd players, and dvd players. Just replace the strip wire with a new one of same type; and see the effect. If it helps you it is OK. If not, replace the laser pickup unit assembly with same type and number.
If you wants anymore assistance, feel free to contact me by Fixya. OK.

Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc.

What antenna do you recommend wit the RCA 20F510TD


This tv has an analog tuner so you will need a digital-to-analog tuner set-top box (assuming you live in an area where most stations have been converted to digital TV broadcast). Whichever tuner you use, the recommended antenna will depend on where you live and how many tall objects are between you and the transmitters. Go to antennaweb.org or tvfool.com and type in your address. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is still very conservative in the channels it will identify as watchable in your area. Tvfool.com lists the channels by direction and the antenna type (by color) you will need to receive them. The color rating is based on how far the stations signal travels to reach your location. An amplifier can help you receive stations that are marginal to your location. (Digital signals are sufficient for the TV to tune them in or you get "no signal" messages.)

I hope this helps.

(I'm in a rural area with an external antenna with a signal splitter/amplifier. Antennaweb suggests I will only get the stations ~10 miles away. In fact I get the stations from there as well as the ones ~30 miles away.)

Antenna/Cable Switch


You can get a 75 Ohm to 300 Ohm balun from a local Radio Shack Store and connect it to VHF antenna but you won't be able to receive off the air signals for very long because in about a month all TV signals will be being broadcast in Digital Format nationwide and all you will receive is SNOW. You'll need to also buy a Digital to Analog conversion unit as well to receive off the air programming. Sorry for the bad news but that's the advancement of technology and mandates from our government (FCC).

Hope this helps and Happy New Year,
