We split coke which went down the back of the tv. can it be repaired or will we need to replace?
the longer it is left the worse the damage get in there and clean it with a dry cloth
A good blow should get rid of all the powder
Also you could go down to your local electricle shop and get some spray that you can use to clean circuit boards etc....
Other than that, ring someone for a free estimate
ARE YOU MAD IF U DELVE INT THE BACK OF YOUR TV UR GONNA GET AN ELECTRIC SHOCK
Yes even if its unplugged you can still get shocked and burned from a CRT television.
Also remember that if you have contents insurance you will have accidental damage cover on all entertainment equipment even if you dont have full accidental damage cover - be careful not to cause further damage to the set which wouldnt be considered accidental if you are considering this route
what exactly happened - was the TV turned on and it died ?
Was it off when you spilt the drink and have not turned it back on again ?
If it was on and stopped working / made funny noises .... then its dependant on what exact components were damaged.
Most things can be fixed ..... its just down to cost vs replacement of the whole item.
I'd like to teach the world to singe in perfect harmony...
Thanks for ther replies so far. very entertaining. Lot of interesting people out there. The telly was switched off and under an extended warrenty. Mastercare via Currys 1st said the telly was ok and working. But as I'm worried about long term effect, eg will the coke be corrosive, and after much complaining they agreed to change the main board. Though an engineer who first saw it said the coke had splashed onto to other compnents so I'm still worried and pressing them to change more bits or replace the tv. After all these warrenties are expensive and they do encourage you to signup for them in case of this kind of eventuality.
Very sharp Smelly!!
My Loewe Aconda CRT that I have owned for about 4 yrs made a loud cracking noise and went off. It will not restart, could be the tube failed?
Has anyone any idea if it's worth trying to get it fixed or would it not make economic sense.
Has been a brilliant TV
Is the red light on for standby? and if you press the on with the remote the green comes on than buzzes and goes off?
PS I'm moving this thread to the TV forum later today.
That description is perfect!!
Yes I wonder what that was as well
No I had the same problem 4 week ago I went in the kitchen and when I came back the tv was of so I used the remote to put it back on and the above happened. Luckily I was insured by domestic and General. They sent an engineer out and he tryed to repair it but said it would have to go in the works he said it could be the transformer. It took about 10 days for them to fix it as I think they needed some new parts.
I had a Sony whilst it was away boy was I glad to get the Loewe back.
Mines about 3 or 4 years old.
One thing it was not the tube.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the advise, I'll look into getting it repaired.....no insurance though
