    Do guys think that AC26-00001H is component in question?
    What else should I check for?
    Why is 15v output on all outputs of AC26-00001H?

    I have attached schematic for it. LOOK AT PAGE 3 AND 4...

    I got a different Samsung broad(mainboard) which fixes the power supply issue. Now when I installed the transport (head assembly) and plug it tries to move the take-in assembly...but it does not move.....

    I have two head assemblies and I tried both. I know they're working day before.

    Any tips.....I just dropped it on of main board and screwed it back in.... all the wires are connected....

    any help will be greatly appreciated...

If you have no indication of power at all,(no lights,no display)the fuse is the first component to check but the vcr has be unplug from the wall when you remove the top cover and remove the fuse to check it.Be carefu.

My window ac was leaking water and ran down wall and got the plug wet. we have tried drying it out with hairdryer but when we plug it in the reset button keeps switching. do i need a new ac or can i buy a...

It's hard to know which one needs replacing, without testing the outlet first. Unplug the AC unit and outlet in a lamp or some other electrical appliance to see if the outlet works as it should. If does function correctly, then the problem is in the AC unit. But, buying a new power cord will probably not solve the problem. More than likely, one of the circuits or sensors in the control panel got fried, when the water got into the outlet and shorted it out. That's why the reset button n the cord won't reset.
Depending on the age of the uni, you may want to consider having it repaired, rather than replacing it. But, if it's 5 years old or older, I'd opt for replacement.

Now, lets address what caused the problem. Either the drain hole in the drip pan was clogged and or the rear of the AC unit did have enough downward tilt. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt. This allows the water collected in the drip pan to flow to the rear of the unit and drain away thru the drain hole. Whether you repair or replace the unit, keep this in mind.

I hope I was able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My AV receiver turns off a couple of seconds after I turn it on. I did what the manual said, unplugged the power source and removed all of the speakers but it continues to do the same thing. Anything else...

you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    My console will not turn on. It's less than a year old!

    Try resetting the AC adapter.
    1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
    2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
    3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

    I get an E9E fault code on my two year old Frigidaire front loading dryer.

    The error code E9E indicates that low voltage is being detected at the control board of the dryer.

    This could be caused by the following factors:

    * The electrical power supply to the dryer is bad. Check the dryer outlet for proper voltage (120 volts AC).

    * Unplug the dryer and check the wiring of the dryer outlet plug. A loose wire on the terminal block could cause this problem.

    * If you are able to safely access the control board in the console, check the red wire that connects to the heater relay on the board.

    (NOTE: The dryer should always be unplugged when accessing internal components.)
    A loose wire or burned connection in this area could result in this error code.

    * A failed control board could cause this problem.

    Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge

    Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

    1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

    2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

    The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

    3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

    4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

    Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

    Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

    If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

    Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.
