Our touch sensitive lamp no longer responds to touch

My touch-sensitive beside lamp no longer responds to touch. I have changed the lightbulb and it still does not respond. I have resorted to turning the bulb tight to turn on the light and then I have to put something on my hands to loosen the hot bulb in order to turn out the light.
Do the sensors wear out? How do you make it respond again?

The sensors do not wear out as such, the fault probably is in the electronics and you should not attempt a repair unless you are suitably qualified as mains voltages are involved.

How do I fix-left headlight low beam not working high beam works


Time for a new bulb; if there is only one bulb then you won't need to remember which one it is. This could be a difficult process depending on what components are behind the headlight - which varies on different models.

Did Russian companies buy pbr and Rainer beer


Yes, Pabst Blue Ribbon - a sub-premium beer brand that embraced savvy marketing to stay relevant in a craft beer age - has been sold, along with its parent, Pabst Brewing Co., to Russian company Oasis Beverages.
The companies declined to disclose the sale price, but beverage industry analysts estimate the sale at nearly $750 million - a figure nearly three times the estimated $250 million that C. Dean Metropoulos & Co. paid for it in 2010. Oasis Beverages' partner in the purchase is TSG Consumer Partners, a consumer products company that will take a minority stake Pabst.
Besides the familiar Pabst Blue Ribbon label, Pabst Brewing Co. makes Colt 45, Old Milwaukee and Schlitz. It also makes regional brews such as Lone Star, Rainier and Old Style.

Power supply circuit boards,gives only 2.0 volts


OK, what is the input voltage? I will give you a ruff diagram here. (volt in) Vcc--sw's-on/off/IR-control board (microprocessor)---ccfl (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) inverter (changes DC voltage tow switching DC (such as on/off/on/off/on/off but at a much faster pace (20Khz)---toroidal coil (this coil will step the switch DC voltage up to about 1000 to 1500 switch DC volt, then this coil will change the orientation of the voltage to current relationship by shifting the current by 90 degree's where it lag the voltage---this process has some changes on circuit and how it works)----OK, from the ccfl inverter------voltage multiplier (all this some HV capacitors and HV diodes hook up an configuration where each stage will double the voltage that go into... EXAMPLE: 4 stage voltage multiplier for each stage now it double the voltage 1500V input to 1st stage--output to 2nd stage 3000V output to 3rd stage 6000V out put to 4th stage 12000V switching DC, they will also refer to this voltage AC voltage because AC switch to from - negative voltage to + positive voltage.


Like in you case, the two volts from the controller to ccfl. Out put volt from ccfl with be around 2.4 to 2.6 due capacitance discharge, Now this voltage will be divided in the ccfl by two input windings (I am not going to explain this). Now the two input winding will induce voltage to the secondary winding (step up). The output from secondary of toroidal coil will be multi switching to the voltage multiplier. Probably in the neighborhood of 1500 switching volt. How many stages the voltage multiplier has I don't know. The ignitier voltage to the cathode from the multiplier would be around 12000 voltage to get image intensifier tube to fire. stewbison

The power light comes on but I have no image.


Hello - nice looking scope and with 100 % rave reviews.
Not much to adjust really - cover off , battery inserted , turn on - adjust brightness. IR illuminator on'off.
I've just read through page 5 on user manual - at least they have a 2 yr warrantee and some phone numbers to get support.
Here is user manual / guide + trouble shooting tips. http://www.nightvisiongear.com/documents/Aries390PaladinNightVisionRifleScope.pdf
A simple test is looking at a distant street light - just incase the 'amplifier' is very sensitive. (that causes BLACK spots) .
If the amp is damaged , they would have a test -- Ray

No image at all


Try replacing the batteries with brand name, photo quality AA's (energizer E2 lithium would be my first choice). 1st gen night vision devices (which is what the NS-156 is) are very sensitive to voltage, and cheap batteries just don't have the "oomph" to power up the intensifier tube. I've bought quite a few "broken" 1st gen devices for between $20-$50, "fixed" them with good batteries, sold them and usually at least quadruple my $$ off the deal. No guarantee, but it's a great place to start. Good luck!

Tubes can go without warning, but power supplies usually do. Get someone to check if PSU takes a current at switch on and then measure the HV.

Electrical fault on touch sensitive bed side lights


Ok the problem you are experienceing is cause from supernatural forces dwelling in you abode. to solve this problem and remove any spirits you must...
