Philips powervision tv my tv tuner pin is broken


You're discussing about the input socket [Ariel socket] to your TV is broken; I assume, and posts this solution. In most cases, this is a irreparable fault; because, this socket is directly connected to the tuner, and is a part of tuner body [case]. If it is broken, the the tuner should be replaced with an identical one. You should check out the number of the tuner used with your TV; can be noted on it by a sticker. Just buy that number tuner, and replace it. The tuner can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

The box on the back of tv that the coax cable turns onto is broken. Can we go buy a cable peice and just solder it back on or do we need to order the whole little box?


You can buy the RF jack and solder it back onto the tuner as long as the tuner has not been damaged beyond repair. Inside the tuner the center conductor from the jack solders into the printed circuit board. If any small parts are broken or missing then you will have to replace the tuner.

My son tripped over the cable cord and the cable/antenna input came off. Is it repairable and is it costly to get it fixed


It depends if the connector broke the tuner it is attached to. Most times the chassis of the set would need to go into the shop. I would generally charge $80.00-$120.00 if the tuner was still good - a new tuner would cost $60-$100 more if bad
The better solution is to use the video audio inputs (if on satellite or cable box) or use the video inputs by changing channels through the VCR (if on cable or antenna and a VCR is available)

The tv acts like the cable has gone out even though it has not. on my mitshubishi rear projection 52 in


do you have the yellow video and red and white audio rca cables ?
it will give you a better picture than the coax connection.
but the tv tuner may be going , so using the rca jacks would eliminate the tuner, but finding out which tuner is bad ( cable box if using one or the tv tuner)should be checked with another tv to see if it also happends to that tv , if it does not then the other tv tuner is bad and needs to be replaced

Older projection tv won't turn on.


id replace the tv its 15 years old and past the livlihood they usually have. it would cost more in parts to repair it than to go out and buy a new one. im sure you probably already know that though. have the tuner checked but i dont think it will save the tv but if it comes on when the cable box isnt hooked up then the problem could be in the tuner. its hard to tell. the tuner is about 100.00

Misubishi warrior 2 intermitant pic freezes 1 second or less


Hello frogman,

The freezing of the picture denotes a loss of signal on a digital (Having a ATSC tuner) TV. If your TV is not digital (Having a ATSC tuner) then it is the device that you have connected to the TV (Cable Set-top Box, DTV Tuner, etc). In the likelihood that it is your TV I would suggest getting a better antenna first if that does not fix the problem you may have a tuner problem. However lets not look at it that way first. What we need to do is to determine if it is the TV of whatever you have connected to the TV.
First unhook the connection you have from the cable to your F connector of the TV (you should see snow or a blank screen) connect a antenna to the F connector of the TV, do you see a snowy picture or a clear sharp picture (snowy= NTSC tuner, clear-sharp= ATSC tuner). If the tuner is NTSC then check you cable device and the connection between your TV and the device and the cabling between the device and the wall. If the Tuner is ATSC then you will have to check all of your connections, and finally if the tuner is bad it has to be replaced by a qualified Tv repair shop.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Sony KP-41T15 Color problem


Does this happen when you play a dvd? if so your RED, GRENN, and BLUE lenses in the tv may be out of alingment. First try pulling the power on the tv (make sure the tv is turned off first) wait about 2 min. then plug it back in. If this stil continues, then what i said earlier may be the case and sorry to say unless you have a warranty you will be better off to buy a new tv. Now days it costs more to repair a tv than to buy a new one. And it could very well be the receiver
