Tv w/ "loose magnifier"


I am going to purchase this tv but the seller it has the following problem:

"This TV functions fine, but does not have the blue lighting working properly because the blue magnifier lens came loose. If this lens is repaired, then the TV would work perfectly."

Is this something that is easily/inexpensively fixable? If so, how can this be fixed?

    On the ad for the tv there's a picture of the guy holding the lense and a picture of the inside of the tv. Here's a link.

    Do you think that's the issue?
    How hard is it to replace a tube?

The coolant thickens over time causing an out of focus blue. 3 gun projectors are a technology of the past. Don't waste any money on this. You'll be miserable and continuously harassed by some problem or the other. Not worth it even if he's giving it away free.

If the lens came loose the CRT would leak its coolant all over the chassis. Sounds as if the Blue CRT may have a short and thats why its not working. If thats the case your looking at about 300.00 for a replacement tube if you install it about 600 if a shop does it.

    Its not that hard to change a tube but the cost factor of the tube If the set was free it may be worth it, but if the coolant got onto the chassis you will have problems as the coolant is corrosive and can end up deestroying the circuit traces and components.

On initial turn on, my Sharp 55R rear projection tv is in color but switches to black and white after a few minutes. Prior to going BW the picture is HD and all other functions of the TV work fine....

There is only a loosed or cold solder in the main pcb of your tv in order to fix this you should have a soldering iron, lead, and desoldering pump.Try to remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug the unit before opening it, then try to pull out the mainboard of your tv but be carefull because some of the connector may accidentally remove and observe the solder part of the pcb, using a magnifying glass is much beter to locate the loosed solder.But when doing some soldering in the pcb be sure not to solder separate pin if accidentaly conneted it may cause much problm to the unit or you can try to contact a service technician to do it for and save from stress good day and best regard.

The picture and sound go off on my tube TV. but the power light is still lit. So I turn off the power, then power it back on. It is fine for awhile. Then the picture and sound go off again.

This trouble commonly caused by a cold solder or loosed connection. In order to do this you should remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug the unit. Then try to observe the solder side of the pcb if there is a loosed or cold solder, it is much better to see this cold solder using a magnifying glass if you see some try to resolder it, or you can contact a technician to do it for you to save you from stress, good day and best regards.

How to unlock jensen TS2750J parental control lock?

To unloxk your Jensen TV do the following.

1. Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

2. Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

3. Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

4. Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
5. Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired

Displaying TV Channel Numbers clearly

Hello jdillion,

I do not believe that such a device exists, however I do have some options for you:

1) get a magnifying window to put in the corner where the number is to magnify that section for your father.

2) Have TV repair shop install a signal to voice converter to take the number generated signal and convert it to a voice so that way the changing of the channel will be heard as a voice as opposed to a number.

3) Have the number geometry changed by a TV repair shop with the ability to reprogram the EEPROM that controls the number generation circuit.

I hope these suggestions give you some idea of what is possible.

Thank you,

No sound from tv

If you have some way to bring the audio sample from the cable, sat box, or ant - into an external amplifier that will drive speakers separate from the TV - then yes it can be done.
