Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Dropped TV!!! Hi, Unfortunately just dropped my TV... Not smart, but mistakes happen. Not time to sort out the damage. The TV fell from about 1-2 feet directly onto the front side. Upon trying it out, the led flashes as usual but instead of turning on the image, one can hear a click and the TV shuts down by itself. I inspected the TV, found a small crack in the big board but one that doesn't seem to disrupt any connection. Otherwise, no obvious damage. What is the most likely problem? Other crack in the board? Tube broken? Is it worth fixing? Sad consumer

Worth fixing? Sorry, probably not. My experience with problems like this are such that the set will keep being repaired as new issues develop. The click and shutdown are a safety feature and are kicking in for a reason. Take what you'd spend on repairs and get a new TV. It will be cheaper in the long run. You might make some $ back by selling the set for parts. Who knows? Hope this helps.

How to get rid of a double screen

Is your tv from 4 years ago? if so there was a rash of tv's having double screens lasting 10-15 minutes. Unfortunately it might be out of warranty. but if it's a newer model, check with samsung (a painful experience) but necessary to get some sort of refund.

Hi I have a Panasonic 36" TXPF10 TV. THERES different colors on the screen like a SPECTRUM, is there anyway of fixing this

Its what we call a purity problem on this 36 inch set and only two things cause it, the set (not getting too technical) uses a single part connected inside that when set is turned on powers a large coil around the picture tube--it just demagnetizes the tube---what happens is there is a single black square part there not much bigger than a cube of sugar---easy to spot as it will have three leads in a triangle shape---

What you will likely find if you can get the set apart---Its a real heavy set is follow the power cord to the board---real high chance you will find one of the three leads on that part has broken loose from the board, happens from all the heat at turn on that part gets real hot for a very short time.

You would be smart if one lead has come loose to solder all three---the part is often referred to as a thermistor--as it gets hot it cuts voltage off to the coil.

The other possible cause is only possible if set fell forward or was dropped, in that case the damage is fatal and cannot be repaired.

Let me know if questions.

OAKLEY ROKR fell in water- will not turn on- can anyone repair ? Lozomex are you available

If it was fresh water then it could most likely be saved but due to it being salt water unfortunately it will not be possible as the salt is very corrosive and will have done damage to the electronics.

My screen turned into all colors after i dropped the tv

HELLO

If the colours on the screen are like a "rainbow" then I'm afraid your tube is damaged - probable cause is the shadow mask in the tube itself has slipped. Dropping a CRT TV set is not good and all sorts of things can happen to the tube.

Carrying monster TV's like this you should always have TWO people carrying it - put it down to experience - you have learned the hard way!

Looks like you'll be buying a new TV!

Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen

You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.

Broken screens

Yes, I've seen this happen twice, similarly. When enough shock has been applied to a phone, such as your case, the screen is very susceptable to damage and will need to be repaired or replaced. There's nothing you can do with expertise or spare parts unfortunately, you may even want to look at a new phone if the warranty is out on the phone. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
