Question about Apex Digital PF2020 20" TV

1 Answer

Sound goes out

First of all we have the TV connected to Direct TV. However, when we initially turn the TV on it comes on showing a picture with "no sound". With the remote for the TV, we have been pressing the "recall" button twice and the sound comes on. It may stay on anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour before it goes off again. And we repeat the process which is very annoying when you are trying to watch a movie. Please help!

Pictures goes to distorded wavy lines.


This could be attributed to tuning reception of your tv. If your using antenna only, it is most probable. If cable, check your line.

If this is a crt type, moving that tv with that size could somehow bend its circuit board. Loose connection is a probability. Could be some minor component is detached from solder. This can be attributed to tuner and vertical IC.

Just for an input.

No Signals


You may have to access the initial setup menu to force the set to look at the cable input. Although that is typically the default today, it may be looking for signals from an antenna. Broadcast and cable use different frequency ranges so the set has to be able to see the range you are trying to watch.

Picture goes on and on constantly


I have the same problem. Picture cuts out completely then back on. When I first turn it on, it does this constantly for about 15-20 mins, then about once every 30 mins or so. The sound is fine, but the picture just flashes on and off.

The color is also starting to shift a lot and cannot be fixed by adjusting COLOR-BRIGHTNESS-PICTURE in the video control menu system. Nothing seems to correct this. I've even unplugged the TV over night to see if it needed some sort of reset. Model = KV-20FV12. Purchased in 2004

My connection is a direct cable connection - Comcast cable. Same problem persist while showing a DVD as well.

Picture goes out, sound stays on


I am not familar with that particular set, but this is what I would check (assuming you don't have a surround sound system hooked up to it as it would sound like a tuner problem otherwise). If you have external Audio/Video jacks with cables hooked up to the Direct TV box, move the video cable and see if you lose video when it is jiggled. If so, you either have a bad cable or connection/connector. When you say you have to turn the TV off for about 30 minutes, do you leave the directTV box on? If so, then the problem seems to be with the TV. Otherwise, maybe the direct TV box is at fault -- leave the TV on and turn off the cable box for a half hour and try it again. You have a few possibilities here, good luck.
