It is a loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused .Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

DTV hookup for an RCA XL-100


Try the $40 RCA DTV Tuner/Converter from Wal-Mart. Connect your existing VHF/UHF antenna (if you don't have one, Wal-Mart sells them too) to the antenna input on the back of the converter and the converter to the antenna input on the back of the TV. If it has only twin lead antenna inputs instead of the standard coaxial type, you'll need a simple twin-lead/coaxial connector, which is about $5. Tune to VHF channel 3 or 4 (set your converter switch correspondingly), turn on the conveter box and follow the onscreen instructions. If you see static, use the automatic or manual fine tune control until you see a clear picture of the menu screen.

Tv channels


TV tuners will not go to any channel higher then 125. If you want to get the channel 500, you will need to have a cable box that are design to get all the higher channels.
Good Luck.

Connection


A couple possible ways:

1. The VCR has 2 threaded coax connectors on the back. One is input for your cable or satellite. The other is the output to the TV. You would set the TV on channel 3 or 4 (selectable on the back of the VCR). Put TV on channel 3, insert a tape and press play. When the VCR is off, the cable or satellite input is routed to the TV.

2. If your TV has Video and Audio RCA connectors, you can connect the VCR that way. You would then put the TV on Video 1 or Video 2 or whatever your TV set supports.

Good luck!
