Question about Toshiba CF27H50 TV

3 Answers

Set needs to be slapped to get a picture

When I first turn on the set there is no picture until I tap or slap the top or side. The picture might then start fuzzy with no color and another slap will usually bring it around. Once the set has warmed up there is usually no more problem. I can't just keep slapping it. I'm sure that will cause even more problems eventually. I feel like I'm adding insult to injury!

Initially the transformer is generating the heat to the surrounding before it can get heated up. Its not that the TV need's a slap, its because of improper contact, have a technician check the transformers contact. I had the same problem for my sony tv and it was due to this only.

TV's need a good slap once in a while to set them right! Just kidding. Sounds like you have a bad connection that once the set is warm it mends itself. Have a technician look at it.

Engine got a knocking cold start, silint when hot

It has developed a clicking engine noise on a cold start. After the car has warmed up, the sound goes away. ... Clicking or a sharp tapping from the valve cover on top of the engine would point to a valve train noise. A dull tapping or slapping sound from the side of the engine block would point more toward piston slap.4 Nov 2011

Cold-start engine clicking is a nuisance, not a disaster -

Hi Mike:
What kind of bike and how old? Vintage Harleys sound like that most of the time. Just kidding all you Harley guys & gals!
Mike, can you tell where the sound is coming from, and most important, what happened immediately before this noise started?
If it was from the engine, I would not run it until I had it figured out.

Freezes food, adjusting thermostat does not help, a slap on the control seems to fix the problem for a day or two. model msd2542v

The thermostat's contacts are sticking and needs replacement. By slapping the side you are opening the thermostat contacts until the stick again.

Nope. This is an Exhaust Leak. You need to replace the Exhaust Manifold Gaskets.

Hi jmvca:
Most likely the tuner is starting to fail. When it is first turned on, tap or slap the side of the cabinet to see if it makes any difference.

The set will have to be repaired in a shop when it goes out completely.

Rca tv with remote control.

While the set is playing tap or slap the side of the cabinet, to see if the picture flickers or goes off. (This is a deep dark secret technique of expert technicians :) )
If it does then you have an intermittent connection in the electronics, which will have to be repaired at a service shop.
