Furrion TV problem

I've got a 19" Furrion TV in the bedroom of my rig. It's worked flawlessly for the last 18 months. Last week while watching TV one night (hooked up to campground cable) the sound cut out. I checked the remote to make sure it wasn't muted, tried increasing the volume, shut the TV off and turned back on, nothing helped. I unplugged the TV power and plugged it back in. When the TV turned back on the sound came back on....for about 5 minutes...then cut out again. This happened two nights in a row. We got to Fort Wilderness and hooked up everything. The TV worked fine on nights 1 and 2. (cable) On night 3 the sound cut out again. I disconnected the power, made sure all the cable connections were tight, replaced the batteries in the remote and turned everything back on. TV worked great....for about 5 minutes...then the sound cut out again. Murphy's law - I'm 6 months over warranty on the TV. I sent an email to Furrion but haven't heard anything back.

Have any of you had this problem with a Furrion TV and how did you (if you did) fix it?

Oh, it's not a cable issue - the front TV worked properly the entire time.

Thanks

By the time you figure out the problem with the TV as it is not just a simple connection problem, and the cost to have it repaired (if it can be), you could have a new one. Not to be trivial with money, but at $150 or less for a new "good" 19" TV, why hassle with the old one?

Hook up a DVD player and see what happens.

Have to agree with this. RV manufacturers are not using Furrion electronics because they are the best. Furrion has an agreement / partnership with Lippert. Birds of a feather.

you could try the headphone jack when it cuts out, see if sound is still present there.

Thanks for the input. I'll try the headphone jack and CD/DVD ideas. If they don't work then I'll go shopping.

My 40 inch furrion does the same think, I just tap the bottom right side of the TV and it returns.

Perhaps a good swift kick to the bottom right side may fix it permanently? Furrion......

Furrion is an ancient Chinese word for cheap...

I am willing to bet that something inside is overheating or loose. Easiest thing to do is get another TV, I would buy something besides a Furrion though.
