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.

Sound won't work on my sylvania


If it has a damaged headphone jack this can cause this or if only one speaker it may be open (bad)---try putting ear right to speaker to see if any sound or buzz.

Loss of sound not common on this set or most newer sets.

Hi! My toshiba 2100td tv is over 10 years old and last few years it's having weird problems. When it's turned completely off (not in standby) and when I turn it on, the screen blinks for a 10-


The real problem here is its age, a lot of these sets of that age critically needed parts are just no longer available.

I repair them but the real risk is someone fixed it, a few months later it develops another problem etc etc etc.

Ten years is now a days a long life for a TV.

You have a lot going on with this tv. i'm guessing you did not buy it new is your bezel is coming apart. if it was just a picture problem I would have guess the t con or the lcd screen. but since youalso have sound problems my first guess would be your signal board. You would have to open up the tv and get the part number from the board itself to order it.

I don't know if your set has a separate power supply but this sounds like the failure of a low-voltage circuit supplying power to the section which modulates the individual pixels on your display.
Sylvania is one of several names owned by Funai which is the worst of all Asian manufacturers.

Hi! Simple question; answer hard to find. Does a Sylvania 6520FDF (20" color TV/DVD, purchased new in late 2006 or early 2007) need a digital converter box? Thanks for any assistance. Bruce


BRUCETYRE::
unless the information that comes with the tv says it is digital ready, NO!! and you will need a converter box.The reason is that for almost two years before the conversion, the /tv people knew what was going to happen and they were getting rid of the 'old' stock.The TV must say it is digital ready.
p.s. I looked it up for you...SORRY!!
"" The manufacturer has informed us that this model has been discontinued. However, it might still be available for sale.""
p.s.s. Now I know for sure that it is not digital ready...get the converter box.
