Question about Sony ICF-CD555TV 7 in. Portable Television

Flip down TV screen out

I have a Sony ICF-CD555 kitchen TV with a flip-down LCD screen. I think the kids were too rough in flipping it around and I now have to gently maneuver the screen this way and that to get the picture to come in. Otherwise the screen is black with no sound. Does anyone know how to repair this? The screen does work, it just seems that there's a bad connection somewhere.

Hi,

Your analysis is quite correct. The basic design is similar to that of laptops and flip cellular phones. The design calls for the use of flexible/ribbon/flat multi wire/conductor cable. In most instances such as this, the operation is intermittent, it is just possible a loose connector or cold solder in any of the wires.

If you are considering a do-it-yourself, these pages (1, 2 and 3) on laptop display repair might be informative. The bulk of the repair would be in removing the lid/cover and exposing the wire/cable. A bit of soldering or pushing in the connector and then re-assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My FLip Ultra's screen shows wavy black and gray lines. I can video things, but cant position the screen to center due to the lines. Upon playback the video works without the lines.


Sounds like the problem is centered around the LCD display on the camcorder itself. Unfortunately, there's not much that can be done to fix this. If the Flip is still under warranty, you can try to ship it back to the manufacturer for a repair/replacement and I would recommend finding out if that's at all possible FIRST AND FOREMOST!!! I hate to say it, but these camcorders were not made to last long at all. Dropping them from as low as 1 foot could cause it to break for good, even placing them down too hard on a kitchen counter could loosen the internal components so it no longer works. They are (IMHO) cheap in every sense of the word and it might be better to just purchase another Flip, or save up and upgrade to a higher quality camcorder. If you're feeling brave and the warranty is expired, you can try to CAREFULLY disassemble the Flip and find the wires going to the LCD screen to see if they are loose or cut. Or you could try LIGHTLY tapping the side and top of the LCD screen and see if that fixes the problem. If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer! haha j/k You could also try calling Flip's tech support at (888)222-6689.

Personally, I'm in love with my Samsung Full 1920x1080i 60hz HD camcorder I got for only $300 (about the cost of 2 Flips) with touch screen, time lapse, 20x opical zoom, photo IN video, youtube ready video, etc, etc, etc. Talk to your local electronics store (BestBuy, Circuit City, etc.) for their recommendations on a "inexpensive" camcorder, but avoid the term "cheap" as it implies low quality manufacturing. I'm not trying to sell you anything, but just showing you that for just a little more, you can get something that will LAST!

Can not get picture to flip


Read the setup manual more closely, the answer was very vague and a person has to pay close attention to the pictures. Found one picture that showed the menu with "flip" displayed on it.
