Question about RCA F19625 19" TV
Watching tv,yesterday; there was a slight sound and then NO sound. After some time, the sound came back on. Today, when I turned on the tv there was no sound -- after about 20 minutes, the sound came on perfectly -- it lasted about 25 minutes and then a noise and no sound. This has happened twice today, but mostly excellent picture and NO sound.
Is it possible to hook up external speackers or do we throw away the tv?
Techs call this a cold or a bad solder connection on the output transistor most likely, tap on it here and there when it happens on the bottom and side of tv, if sound comes in then stops again then it would be a loose connection due to heat over time, if your inclined u can be fixed it, if bad chip it would play first then shut off, or if u have a cable box or rca outputs on tv use them on an amp to get sound, that would bypass amp output and u will use the preamp section which is a different circuit, firstname.lastname@example.org
