Question about Sony ICF-CD555TV 7 in. Portable Television

1 Answer

Almost have it

I took the cover off the TV, and can see that under the motherboard/circuit board that there are a couple of screws loose. Looks like they likely hold the LCD in place, which would explain the problem. Unfortunately, I can only seem to get one end of the motherboard disconnected, so I can't get in there with a screwdriver. any suggestions. It seems to be hung up on the end where the CD drawer opens.

    I've gotten all the screws out, but the motherboard is still held in place in a couple of places by cables/circuitry. It doesn't seem like I can remove these connections without damaging the system. It's very frustrating because I can see the loose screws in the bottom of the housing, but can't get at them! Any more suggestions? The suggestions I've received so far have been really helpful in getting me to this point.

Hi again,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

Often, the mounting designs of these units calls for the screws to be positioned closer to the board edge with two or more at the middle/center. Likewise if the board also holds switches, expect screws to be within the same general area. It may be to your advantage to remove as much as the hardware as logically appropriate (such as CD assembly) to have a better view. Additionally, may I suggest you group the screws as often they are not of equal lengths.

Cheers.

    I think I have a fair idea of the difficulty. There are occasions that forcing the issue of removal of other components/circuitry might (just might) add to the trouble as it is. One has to admit that if a problem could be simplified, then that might be more practical (thought not necessarily technically correct). Over the years, the best tools I have ever had are my own two hands and a lot of patience. But of course that does not stop me from using improvised tools such as:


    1. eyebrow tweezers to serve as mini pliers. Agree that it would not be as tight using a screw driver but it should serve the purpose;

    2. make your own - flatten a fairly thick solid wire and bend into an L-shape. In effect what you have would be a tool that can squeeze in the available space and long enough to reach the screws. It would look like an Allen wrench as shown here.
    My compliments on not giving up on the challenge.

My whirlpool cabrio whirlpool cabrio washer model wtw7320yw0 will not turn on when plugged in. It worked fine 3 days ago, any ideas??


It'll very likely be either the touchpad or the main machine control board (motherboard ). Take off the console (3 screws on the back side of the console ) and remove the back side of the touchpad cover. It's white and is held on by 3 phillips screws . Look for visual damages to the touchpad (the circuit board you just took the cover off of). If you see any, definitely the touchpad. If you see NO burnt spots or corrosion on the touchpad, then you should replace the motherboard.

What could the problem be for this? Have a treadmill that's been outside for a while. The cord was chewed up and I have replaced it, but it goes on for a couple seconds then turns off. What could the...


If it was outside, was it under cover? If it was not, then the console circuitry are corroded and not fully up to themselves. If it was under cover, same thing can happen. temperature and humidity, moisture and cold can also impair the performance of the unit. It may be a difficult problem to trace unless you can open the console and see for yourself the state of the printed circuit board/s. If it looks like silvery powder around the IC's (integrated circuits) pins, then tht's some air and moisture damage. If you live by the sea, same thing will happen on appliances left outside. And to find the cable chewed, looks like it's been outside for a long time and may definitely have rust on the circuit board, in other words - moisture damaged. If there is no silver rust (powdered ash-type rust) and the printed circuit board looks clean, then try and locate the treadmill manufacturer or its supplier websites and email them the problem you're having.

Sound but no picture. Two and a half years old.


If this set is under warranty you should return it to get it fix/replace. (Being this old it probably isn't.)
If not then;
This sounds like the inverter/backlight board has failed.
This board controls the back-light for the set.

IF YOU KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH ELECTRONICS REPAIR or have a friend with knowledge/skill you can fix it.

>Unplug the set.
>Remove the back cover.
>Remove the shield cover over the inverter board(s).
>Unplug the cables connected to the board.
>Remove the screws holding the board.
>Put in the replacement board and replace the screws.
>Plug the cables into the board.
>Replace the shield cover over the boards.
>Replace the back cover.

When replace the circuit boards, avoid touching the front or back and handle by the edges to avoid contaminates and static


Get the part number that matches your board.

A search shows that this tv has two inverter boards. The one I show is the Master and the other is the Slave.
(The Slave inverter is sometime called Ballast board;)
If you do it yourself you can replace both to know you corrected the problem.


.You can get this part from several places.

Hi,
The problem is your convergence circuit board gone bad. This is commonly caused by shorted/open IC on that board. First try to spot if there is a bad solder joints and resolder it. If nothing replaced the convergence IC. Also check the resistors around.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Have sound but no picture csn shut power off and back on and the word polaroid shows up but then a black screen but do have the sound from the station


I have the same TV and had the same problem. Here is the solution to fix it. On the back of the TV in the middle remove the one screw that is holding the black cover on. Remove the cover, it should slide down. Under that cover is a metal cover with I believe has 3 screws. Take these out and remove this cover. There are 2 circuit boards under this cover. The one with the bad capacitors is the top circuit board. Remove the 6 screws that hold this board in place and unplug the 3 or 4 connections so the board will come out. Be careful and remember how it goes back together. Take pictures if not sure. The capacitors are located at EC17 & EC18 on the board. You can get these at Digi-Key.com and the part # is 493-2069-ND. They have a picture of what they look like so you know what you are looking for. These will need to be replaced by someone that knows how to soldier them back in. I sent mine to JD Electronics in Poland, Me. (207)998-5687 Call him and see if he can fix it. Mine works fine and it took me about 10 minutes to put it back in my TV. I sent him the capacitors and the board in a box. Hope this helps.

PS3 will not start-the green light and hard drive starts up for a few seconds then shuts off


Hello,

The problem is a hardware problem, which is due to a failure in a component it the unit.
You will have to dismantle the playstation, clean it and couple it back together. To dismantle the playstation, follow the steps below:
1.
  • Pull the warranty sticker off of the bottom of the PS3. This will void your warranty, so make sure that the problem you are addressing is not covered by your warranty. Note that taking your PS3 to be repaired by someone other than Sony will still void your warranty. You are not losing anything by taking apart your PS3 yourself. Under the sticker will be a small piece of rubber that hides a single screw. Remove the rubber piece and unscrew the screw.
  • 2 Slide the faceplate off of the PlayStation 3. After the faceplate is removed, you can now separate the two halves of the plastic covering. Remove and set aside the top piece of the plastic case to expose the internal components of the PS3. On the underside of the top plastic covering, there will be a memory card slot at the bottom-right corner.
  • 3 Locate and remove the Bluetooth circuit board. Remove the four screws to lift the Bluetooth board free. This is located at the bottom-left corner of the main body of the PS3 if you have the system flat on its side instead of standing up straight. This will look like a green rectangle with a tan metal covering.
  • 4 Locate the small circuit board that controls the power and eject functions of the PlayStation 3. Remove the four Phillips-head screws in order to separate this piece from the body of the system. This is located at the bottom-right corner of the PS3, directly in front of the disc box.
  • 5 Locate and remove the Blu-Ray/PS3 player. This is the large tan metal box that is located in the top right corner of the PS3. Unscrew the player and flip it upside down to expose the circuit board that controls it. If you want to remove the circuit board, there are five small screws that hold it in place.
  • 6 Remove the power supply from the inside of the gaming system. This is located at the top-left corner inside the PS3. To remove this component, there will be two telephone-like plugs that have to be unplugged, one at the top and one at the bottom of the power supply. Additionally, there will be 13 screws that hold the power supply in place. The back and front plastic coverings of the PS3's shell will now easily slide free.
  • 7 Remove the final internal component, which is the PS3's motherboard. In order to do this, remove the metal covering the rests on top of the motherboard. There will be 11 screws that border the metal covering as well as four screws in the very center, two from each of the rectangular center pieces. Once the screws are removed, the metal covering will lift off and the motherboard will be able to be removed.


  • Have it cleaned and properly reverse the process to reassemble it back together.

    Note: If you are still under the warranty period of purchase, you can take it back to the dealer that supplied it to you for their technical support.

    Take care and good luck

    Is their a way to open a PS3 counsole, my kid might of put a couple of dvd movies in it, it turns on but then shuts down and red light flashes


    Hello,

    To open your ps3, you need to first shut it down and disconnect all the cables connected to it, wait for about an hour for the high voltage in it to dissipate. The you get a screwdriver that matches the screws on it.

    But before you get to all these parts you must have gotten your DVD movies out.

    Take care

    My Sharp LC32D40U went black yesterday, I can still hear the speakers but no image


    I have the same model 3yrs old. Your problem is a loose contact on a circuit board. Unplug the tv and remove the back cover. Remove the circuit board on the opposite side of the input plug. Clean the mating surface of the circuit board and the mount, reinstall the circuit board and tighten the screws. This is where the lost contact is occuring. Reinstall the back cover. Thats it. good luck and happy watching.

    Dropped my HP 12C into the sink (full of clean water)


    Yes, take it apart, and wash the circuit board.
    Hard part is taking it apart without breaking the little tabs that snap the case together. It may have a couple hidden screws somewhere like in the batt compartment or under a label or under the rubber feet. Then carefully pry the case joint apart to get the snaps to let loose. Then the circuit board easily comes out - be careful if all the keys are loose not to disturb them. Also be careful of the display that may be loosely mounted. Once you get the board out, you can wash it with soap and water - whatever, just rinse it when clean with something like alcohol so no residues are left. Also be careful to not rub off any off the black key contact spots where the keys touch it. Put it back together loosely and see if it works.
    Hope Ya Fixit !!
    Fame !
