When unit turns on, the unit will come on for few seconds and then shut off for few seconds. back and forth like that continuously. what to do?


May be a faulty thermostat. Try bypassing the t-stat, if the unit keeps running normally, the stat is bad.

DVD Player Won't TUrn


If the unit does not see the door switch (the door where the disks are inserted) it will power off after a few seconds. Under the door there is an adjustment for the door switch. It's about an inch back from the front face of the unit and - this is tricky - it's behind a small plastic cover. If you push with your finger you will feel a soft spot and will see the edges of plastic. The plastic piece is about a quarter inch high and less than an inch long. After removing the plastic cover you'll see the adjustment screw. Loosen the screw a little bit and you'll be able to slide the screw (which is attached to the switch). You won't see the switch, but sliding the screw left or right (it's in an oblong hole) will adjust the switch position. Change the position until the unit powers up and stays on.

Replaced lamp in optoma ep1690 but there is not projection


Hello, many of times this is related to the brighter being turned down and we go about trying to turn up the unit thru the remote and you may need to do this adjustment directly from the panel on the unit.
If this should fail, you may need to unplug the unit and allow it to be off for over 24 hours and this will cause the unit memory to return back to the manufacture's settings and if you still get the same result, consider your lamp may have played out, need to be replace... good luck and I hope thi helps.

Kenwood KDC-X717 - Facplate opens when powered on, stays open. No display.


I've had this problem before. The ribbon cable needs to be replaced. They wear out every few years. Take it in for service. Or do you want to sell it? I need the face plate for mine.

Philips 42FD9954


Hey I have the same problem with my 42fd9954/69s. The best solution that I found that works everytime is I have taken the back off my plasma hung it on the wall. Then when I need to turn it on I it starts clicking, so I get my $10 room heater and blow some hot air down the back of the tv from the top and 30 secs later the tv will turn on.

Too easy. Bit dodgy, but I am a uni student!

Illumination not working when faceplate is open.


Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
