    Mine lost audio completely Nd I connected audio cables from my sat, reciever to my Bose Wave radio. Good sound, but having to use a 2nd remote is a pain. Dell service quoted $261 plus shipping to/from Ohio plus parts. After paying that much for it a little over a year ago, I'm not spending that kind of money for a repair which probably won't last any longer than it did initially.I'd like to hear about it if anyone comes up with a better solution.

    The sound goes out on these TV's after about 2 years. Dell is aware of the issue. They are working hard to ignore it. They no longer sell/support (Dell)TV's. They will offer to remedy the problem by selling you another (repaired?)TV for only 20% more than the price of a new one. I have called several times and sent several emails to customer (non)service. I sent an email to MD and finally got a response ( a flunkie sent a link to a repair place, they would not touch it). I think maybe it's time MD should get another email, or 2 or 3 or ?...

Shredder has quit working after a power outage.

Sounds like it fried despite the "surge strip". Which is not a proper filter for big surges, just a cheap movistor which might be fried also if you took it apart.

The only way a clogged filter would affect the system is restricting airflow, and freezing the evaporator. This sounds like a classic defective run capacitor problem. If you don't have the tool to check it, just replace it with the same microfarad and voltage rating printed on it.

Frigidaire GLHS269ZCB4 after power outage Freezer not cooling fridge warmer hear the fan click and short cycle

Hello Wayne, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Was the freezer unplugged during the power outage? If it was, here are some simple troubleshooting steps you need to take:

It is best to unplug the unit and wait for the power to come back on.

Next, turn the control to off (or digital display), plug the unit in and reset control to factory-suggested setting.

Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. Make sure the refrigerator plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet and not plugged into a GFI.

If your unit has no power and it is not due to a power outage, check the following:

Verify that the temperature control is set to the OFF position.
Set temperature controls to proper setting suggested by your owner's guide; or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed.

If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, the power loss may have possibly caused a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or wiring harness. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

The picture of my Samsung DLP tv is getting darker. We have had several power outages over the past few days as a result of the hurricane. Do I need to make an adjustment?

Yes, or it can also be a burned fuse, you can take it to a service center and repair it yourself.
Or maybe the power outage just disconfigured the Tv try resetting it.

Desktop won't start after Hurrican IKE power outage

the only thing i can think of is the power supply got fried that is the most common problem when it comes to the pc not powering on. Now hopefully that is all that it fried and not the motherboard my suggestion is to take to local pc repair shop and have them change your power supply or you could put it in if you familiar with how the machine is wired.

Supressor, transient

Hello hward,

You said, Hello from Baton Rouge, La. just recently nailed by Hurricane Gustav.......
during the hype of the storm, I think my wife's double oven took a electric surge and started smoking. I visually inspected the damage and saw a badly burnt and scarred flat saucer looking component (suppressor, transient)...I have ordered a replacement part and would like to know if you think that replacing this item will be all I will need to do..

If the range was under water I do not think this will be the only problem.
I believe it will cause you endless problems if it got submerged!
you may end up replacing this water logged unit!

Thank You ,Please remember to leave a rating

Verify your outside breaker did not trip or the inside breaker. Reset once if it continues to trip have some one check it out. If you have a programable t-stat take it off the wall and remove the battery this will cause it to reset
