2 Answers

Tuner does not work Sony CDX-L420V CD suddenly.

I have much of the same problem like one on this forum; -problem: the tuner is not working. -no reaction when prsssing the buttons. -Much of this:It seems to be not a power loss cause when I press the "display" button it shows the time it seems to be "on" ... -The other task is when opening to insert a cd it does,is also plays it. sound: stays on one level.( not loud) -I pressed the reset button many times: no change I tried jexx recommendations: de fuse from the radio itselff is allright. -No burned fuses in the fusebox. Other suggestions? Soer.

    I wil rephrase.
    tuner suddenly does not work Sony CDX-L420V CD.
    -Maybe it was caused by trying to put the front om the radio to fast in its seat two times in a row.
    -Should expect a blown fuse, but the fuse on the radio and the circuits of the car are allright.( i will check them fourth time)
    -problem exists ; the tuner is not working.
    -no reaction when presssing the buttons.
    -when I press the "display" button it shows the time.
    -It opens for the cd
    -it also plays it. but thes sound: stays on one level.( not loud)
    -I pressed the reset button many times: no change

Yes Angelflo. Marv suggestions did it. One of the tiny plates was bent. I carefully straighted it and everything works fine. But this tiny plate is vulnerable. I keep the front on the radio on its place now. A basebalhat is covering my radio if I leave the car. Soer(jat)

Try cleaning the connections on the faceplate and were the faceplate meets the unit, Make sure you disconnect the power first (pull the fuses) look carfully at the pins on the radio itself were the faceplate and the radio meet see if any are bent or out of place. I think what the other person was talking about fuses is there is two fuses on the radio and there will also be two fuses in the car. So there should be four fuses to check depending on your car. Good Look.

Samsung plasma ppm42s3 , picture wobbling,sometimes screen goes blank

Hello arunaik_6,

This looks as if a component has become thermally sensitive. The best way to find this is to use component cooling spray. It looks as if the problem is localized to the tuner section. Take the back off of the TV and turn the TV on, wait until the problem occurs and lightly spray the tuner section with the component cooling spray watch for any reaction, then if this does not work spray the Microprocessor and the LVDS section and watch for a reaction. The set should go back to normal when it does that section is the problem, try to localize the problem to one component. Then replace that component.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

No Channels

First check to make sure your coax cable is in the correct slot, (Make sure it is plugged into the outside port). The other port on there is the ATSC antenna which would only be useful for over the air broadcasts if your area has them (I believe Omaha, NE would be able to get KETV over the air)and if you have an applicable antenna. You are using the proper format (NTSC_M), if you are using the WinTV application, on the upper left side of the screen you will see your channel up/down buttons, in-between them is an addition button for video source, try changing this to see if you are able to scan more channels. My initial reaction is that you are using the ATSC tuner for scanning the channels. I will check back frequently to check for more information for you.
