Question about Apex Digital PF3230 32" TV

Picture not locking in

My APEX 3230 recently developed a problem where the picture is just not "locking in".The technician says it needs this IC/processor TDA9379PS/N2/4I1231.However I am unable to locate it in Jamaica where I live.Can it be confirmed that that processor may be the problem and if so where can I get it.

Are you on cable or the dish? Did you buy the set in Jamaica? The reason that I am asking these questions is that all sets do not work the same every where in the world.

Its main digital board should be suspected. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

Vizio vt420m comes on then flickers and then doesn't show any picture, but the tv stays on

If you have not been using the TV for quite sometime, moisture would have developed some defects inside the TV when you switched on. Sometimes even insects and lizards might get in and cause short circuits. Anyhow this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

Convergence and wavey picture problem

Actually you have 3 problems. The two that you listed and the third which is: Apex does not support their units. Ask anyone who has tried to get any service. Your problem sounds like a bad digital convergence box. I fix this problem several times a week but on name brand sets. Cost is usually less than $100 for the part. Some problems with Apex equipment can be fixed if the part is a common off the shelf part. That is not the case with your problem. Apex equipment is cheap for a reason. All posts that I have read say that they do not last long and you can't get parts. That has also been my experience as a technician. We don't even accept Apex units for repair anymore. Next time spend the extra money to buy a name brand unit and it will more than likely be repairable.
