SOURCE: Turns itself off

Sharp LC-13AV4U - turn it on and in ten seconds it turns off.
Happens every time.
Any Ideas?
-----------------------------------------------
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
This is NOT a fix, this is a permanent band-aid.
All you need is a phillips head and tiny diagonal cutters....
Heck, even a nail clipper would do it.
Just disable that faulty protection shut-down circuit!
Remove all the screws from the back cover
and look at the main board with the
unplugged! power cord towards you.
In the upper right corner of the board, you will find
a tiny red-striped zener diode, labeled as D409.
It is to the right of an electrolytic capacitor marked C403.
Snip this diode, at either end, or snip both ends and discard it.
Re-assemble the TV.....and you just got your tv back!.
I only run mine when I am sitting in front of it,
I never leave it running unattended....just in case!
Don't blame me it yours burns up....but mine is just fine.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U-picture goes off at random times

Comment by Guest, posted on Oct 25, 2008My Aquos has the same problem. I'm not sure how I discovered this, but when I lean the TV forward and hit the power button it will turn on every time. If the screen blacks out and I don't lean it forward when I hit the power button, the screen will just remain blank. It is very weird, but at least repeatable.

- Thank you, Guest. That did it. It definitely seems to be a problem with the TV. Tilting it and hitting the power button helped me get the video back.

Your control board seem's defective or the inverter board (associated circuits) are bad. This is common in most TFT-LCD Tv's.......

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC-32D41U pictures problem

I have had exactly the same problem. Sounds daft but by not using the remote, and only using the power on/off switch on the TV itself, it is working perfectly...no idea why
Use the remore for changing programmes etc but not for on/off
Try it anyway because I know how annoying this is

How can I make my kitchen more functional?


There are a lot of ways to make a kitchen space more functional. You can choose to make add-ons to your kitchen in order to create storage solutions, for example, magnetic strips on the walls to store knives and utensils. However, if you are feeling like it requires more than a few extra storage solutions, you may want to replace some of your kitchen cabinets or revamp your kitchen altogether. I had the same problem with my kitchen in High Wycombe, I had a medium-sized space, but the cabinets and worktops were just not functional. With the help of a kitchen supplier, I refitted the room completely and made use of space that I didn't even know existed, like awkward corners and wasted worktop space. I also integrated my appliances like my microwave and rearranged the layout so I could fit a preparation island.

What is a standard kitchen counter depth?


Counter depth is key to functional, comfortable kitchen design. Standard dimensions keep cabinetry within reasonable size for average-height users, and in relation to common sink and appliance sizes, but guidelines allow for slight or moderate changes. The countertop overhang plays a couple of roles and affects counter depth.
Standard lower, or base, cabinets are 24 inches deep, while upper, or wall, cabinets are 12 inches deep. Countertops typically overhang their base cabinets by about 1 inch, or at least 3/4 inch beyond the drawer fronts and cabinet doors. The overhang helps keep crumbs and spills from getting into drawers and cupboards below and completes the comfortable cabinetry contour that includes a 3-inch-deep toe kick on the floor. Island or bar-style overhangs often extend about 15 inches or more to create knee space for people seated at the bar. Deep overhangs require bracing, which may be provided by brackets, legs or even a steel plate underneath the countertop.

Is there a standard size for a kitchen countertop?


A linear foot is 12 inches wide and 25 inches deep because the standard depth of kitchen countertops is 25 inches.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Accessible Guidelines state that space at least 30 inches wide should be accessible, meaning that wheelchair users can roll up to the counter to perform tasks. The counter should be between 28 and 34 inches high and accommodate a minimum 27-inch knee clearance below the counter, sink or cabinet space. Anything beyond the first 16 inches of counter depth, from the front edge, is considered dead space for wheelchair users.

remove-ge-spacemaker-800x800.jpgRemove a GE Spacemaker
The GE Spacemaker series of microwave ovens are designed to be installed above an oven range, freeing up counter space in your kitchen. Some of these Spacemaker models are connected to an outside venting system to carry kitchen vapor and odors outside. Other Spacemaker models utilize a ductless system to do this. Removing a GE Spacemaker microwave oven isn't a difficult task, but, because of the size of some of the oven models, it is a two-man operation. Have a question?

Things You'll Need

  • Assistant
  • Sharp knife
  • Phillips screwdriver
Instructions
    • 1 Open the cabinet above where the Spacemaker microwave oven is installed. If you see a vent in the cabinet leading to the Spacemaker oven below, your Spacemaker is vented. This vent needs to be disconnected before continuing with removal. Disconnect the vent either by loosening the duct clamps or by cutting the duct tape away with a sharp knife. Pull the vent out of the top of the oven.
    • 2 Have an assistant support the oven from below. Loosen the mounting screws connected to the Spacemaker through the cabinet bottom. Loosen the screws by turning counterclockwise with the Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Unplug the Spacemaker from the socket in the cabinet.
    • 4 Continue loosening the screws while your assistant holds the oven in place. Once the screws are removed, have your assistant slowly lower the Spacemaker down by lowering the front face at a 45-degree angle.
    • 5 Feed the power cable for the Spacemaker through the hole in the bottom in the supporting cabinet.
    • 6 Help your assistant slowly pull the Spacemaker forward and out of the mounting brackets on the rear wall. Once the Spacemaker is cleared of the mounting cabinet and rear wall, set it down.
    • 7 Remove the mounting bracket from the rear wall by loosening the screws.

I Bought An Old Kenmore Space Saver Microwave. It Doesnt Have A Manual. I Dont Know If It Can Go Over Top Of Electric Range Stove. I Dont know How To Install It. So What Im Asking Is How Can I Tell If It...


One quick way would be to look on the top of the unit. Do you see empty screw holes where the screws going through the cabinet above it will go through and screw into the top of that unit? If no open screw holes on top of unit probably not an over the range model. Also, look under the bottom of the machine. do you see feet??? Or just aluminum screen vent filters. If feet and no filters probably a counter top unit.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.
