Question about Sylvania 6413TC 13" TV

3 Answers

Color Tv I have a 20 year old Sylvania TV in my bedroom. I don't use it a lot, but when I do, there is a low buzzing sound coming from the speaker. It does not seem to affect the audio, that sounds normal. Any ideas?? I have an electronics background, so I might be able to fix it myself, once I can narrow down the problem. Thanks, Greg.

    I believe your'e right, now that I think about it, it always has had a very low buzz, but seems to be getting louder with age. Oh well, 20 years old and still a great picture, it's far outlived most sets. Thanks!!!

Try first to Mute the television and check if the buzzing sound will be gone , because if its gone that can be a problem with the sound part of your unit, but if the buzz is still there and the television is on mute, consider the buzz as a strange sound in one channel sio check if the buzz is still there when you switch channel .Sounds like wind blowing, or leaves rustling? That can be the wiring problem .

Hope that helps............

Buzzing nois of this kind can come from a short or from disturbance.

    Check that you do not have any electric device near to the phone that can cause electric disturbance, such as a power adapter or a large appliance.
    Eventually move TV to a different place to check if the problem persist.
    If the buzz is not because of electric disturbance, then it can be a short on speaker cables inside tv, a short on audio area of TV pcb board, or a bad component on pcb, for example a faulty audio chipset or a burnt capacitor. In this last case, in order to fix the problem, the TV must be taken apart and component on board tested using multimeter.This job should be performed by a TV technician.

Well im not sure what can be done about it, our tvs also have a little buzz in them, my laptop also has a background buzz very silent one, if I plug my headphones directly into my computer, I get the same buzz from there also, but when I plug my headphones into my lcd screen there is no buzz, there seems to be somekind of a filter or amp which filters the buzz out and the sound is clear.

this is not really a fix, but I feel the buzz is normal, I suppose it could be cleared out by somekind of a filter or amp between the source and the speaker.

    It may also be interference from other electronic devices around the television but since its in the bedroom I suppose you don't have many electronic devices in there, also bad signal might make it louder.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

I can't get my Comcast remote control to sync up with this sylvania 32in HD tv. I tried every code in the Comcast DVR manual under sylvania tv's and nothing, I would love a fix to this problem.


the tv is likely to be generic in nature i.e. parts used by many manufacturers. if you knew what tv builder actually designed it you could find the code. does the remote have a search feature if so use it, it should find something that operates most tv functions eventually
