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.

I need to erase a recorded message on a sony under counter mounted radio...any suggestions


The only way to delete the digital voice memo is to unplug the ICF-CD553RM for over a minute (or have a power failure of a similar length). Crutchfield has the manual on their product details page: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-DNzL3xzLMrU/p_158IC553RM/Sony-ICF-CD553RM.html#details-tab . The direct link to the manual is: http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/158/158IC553RM.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Broken stand on RCA portable tv


Hi there Storch
Have you tried to repair the broken part? Sometimes when parts are scarce, that is the best approach. You could go to a repair guy near you and he could do it for you for a small charge if you were not happy about you ability to do a good job. I could talk you through it also. :)

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.

Jensen LCD JE1907DC keeps looping the Jensen intro logo.


I don't have a solution but do have the same problem.
I took it in a reputable shop and they told me the main board was gone and they could not get parts for it.
I just found out that Jensen is a Audiovox trademark.
