Sizzling noise When I plug it in and try to turn it on I hear a sizzling noise for a few seconds and then it stops. Almost sounds like a cap charging but I can see no obvious damage.

Re: sizzling noise

Sounds like the High Voltage section is shot. Probably a bad flyback transformer. This is the component that has the high voltage lead coming out of it. There is no high voltage to the tube and no picture as well. The horizontal output transistor is usually a suspect here as well if its shorted. Hope this helps.

Any replacment for sc505 portable steam cleaner

It sounds like you may have lime or hard water deposits around the screw threads on the cap from the water used to create the steam in your steamer.
I use white distilled vinegar, that I -
  • first warm in the microwave
  • then slowly pour over the sides of the cap so that the vinegar can get "under" and around the cap.
    • I also stop and try to tighten and loosen the cap trying to work the vinegar into the threads.
    • Depending on the severity of the lime build up, depends on whether the cap comes off the first time, you may need to repeat pouring the warm vinegar over the cap or soaking the cap in the vinegar overnight (with a vinegar soaked rag) - I hope it helps??

that's from a thermal switch, to keep the innards cool, post use. Seems to me that you might just check to see that all vents are open and clear of debris, for starters.

How long will the battery last? Can it be recharged in my car? How long does it take to recharge?

Haier HLT71 portable TV battery is good for about 2 hours.
You can recharge it from your car cigarette lighter jack.
Or from your household 120 VAC wall plug.
It comes with both adaptors you need.
It takes about 8 hours for a full charge.
You can charge the TV while watching it, or you can power it off.
Not sure if it charges faster or the same if you are watching.
If the battery does not give you 2 hours after the first charge, try charging and using it a few more times to bring the battery up to full capacity.
Replacement batteries are available on eBay. Good to have for backup in case of a storm.

Axion handheld tv. No picture at all.

I have on and if the batteries start getting weak the screen display brightness is the first to stop working. Double check that, if you are on AC power try sliding the brightness control from dim to bright a few times and see if the rheostat has corroded. Those are a few of the quick checks you can try, let me know. Jay

Strawberru shortcake tv turns on then right back off

Sounds like the power supply may be going out, or check and see if there is a circuit breaker button on the back. Otherwise there may e a blown fuse that is internal. Don't open the back unless you have training on what is safe to touch as the picture tube can maintain a HUGE electrical charge that can stop your heart if you accidently touch the wrong thing. Sounds like a weak power supply tho. Jay
