On/off switch won't stay turned on

My technics are quite old and i went to turn one on the other day and the on/off knob just turns off straight away. It would stay on if i held it in place but otherwise it just flicks off by itself... very frustrating. any ideas??

Knob shaft is probably dirty, or has dislodge inside. Unfortunately, you will have to open up your unit to see what is going on inside.

LG TV KEEPS TURNING OFF


Kindly do not keep attempting to turn it on, as you are likely to spoil some other boards/parts/components of the TV. Look for any loose contacts in power out let, RC jack, cable and socket. In order to ensure, it is not caused by the input device, connect a DVD player
and see. Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

I'm trying to fix my 21 inch JVC TV, its on standby mode i detected the problem it was Horizontal output transistor, when i replace it with new one it work but after 24 days it got shorted again so i...


depending on circuit design in some TVs when flyback becomes defective then (1) only flyback gets deffective or (2) flyback & 1 transistor big in size fixed near flyback gets deffective or (3) flyback,big transistor & resistor or diodes or some times ICs will get deffective ..........so flyback replacement is compulsory + which ever components gets deffective ....... usually flyback gets deffective after 4yrs (between 4yrs to 12 yrs depending on TV brand & usuage ) .............so in your case along with horizontal transistor replace flyback also ..................... Remove that flyback from main board ? using marker make a mark (1 dot on knob & at the same line put another dot on flyback --- these 2 dots should be in same line ) on all the knobs on fly back ....now turn all the knobs one by one in anticlockwise direction slowly until it stops .... Then observe from the mark which you made before turning .. --- you will get an idea which knob howmuch it was turned in anticlockwise direction.... now take flyback to electronic shop & buy same type ( equivalent will not work )......at the shop itself check part number , number of pins & their position of old flyback with that of new flyback ----- everything should match 100% - nothing less nothing more .... it should be exact .... check many shops...now turn all the knobs of new flyback in anticlockwise direction very very very slowly until it stops....now fix it to mainboard very slowly & carefully....don't forget to connect red wire from flyback to TV TUBE ...again iam repeating don't forget to connect red wire from flyback to TV TUBE .... Now observe mainboard carefully whether any connector is not connected ....now connect only tv powercord & stay at a distance & switch on Tv for 2 seconds & then switch of immediately....during this 2 seconds TV gets on & led also gets on continuosly (won't blink) & there should not be any smoke or sounds on main board ...this confirms you have replaced flyback without disturbing other components & not shorted any joints..... so now again switch on tv ..wait 3 or 4 seconds ...led will be on but there won't be any picture ... Don't worry ....in the beginning you have observed howmuch knobs on your old flyback were turned in anticlockwise direction....remember..? see your old flyback again.... Now using suitable screew driver turn all the knobs on new flyback in clockwise direction one by one very very very slowly ...untill as it was in old flyback ( approximately ) --- remember TV is in on condition ... means high voltage will be there ... bymistake if you touch any part of the tv .. you will get very severe shock.... So be very very very carefull ..now while doing this adjustment observe what is happening on the screen - how brightness is changing ... Now switch off tv....connect signal ( antenna or dvd or cable..) & again switch on TV ....so now depending on brightness & clarity of the picture ..looking at the tv screen again you have to turn 1 or all the knobs on flyback either in clockwise direction or in anticlockwise direction very very very slowly ..once you start doing this adjustment practically then automatically you will come to know which knob should be turned . in which direction - & howmuch it has to be turned .... But remember this adjustment is very important .. Sometimes it will take 30mins to finalise the exact position.of knobs .. so take your owntime & finalise the exact position of those knobs..then switch off tv ..fix back the tv cover .. then switch on tv again ....that's all .......100% GUARANTEE again your tv will work normally ....vishnuswamy_23.jpg

OVEN STAYS HOT


This is somethig you should have checked by technician.Till then turn the oven off then pull straight out on the knob removing it. use a plyers to check if it's actually turning off by turning it to the left. If it does turn to the left( off position) you may just need a new knob.

Buzzing noise


This might not work for you, but Syntax LCD tvs have a similar problem straight out of the box. To fix it, I had to turn the backlight brightness to full brightness, at which point, the buzzing went away. You might give that a try!
