Problem with 32-inch Toshiba flat screen tv

I just bought a new Toshiba 32-inch flat screen tv. It works fine; however, sometimes, when I turn it on, the sound is fine, but the screen is black - no image. I can turn it off and turn it back on and normally the picture will then appear. Once or twice, I had to unplug it to get the picture to come back. Any idea what would cause this? The TV is under warranty and if it's going to be a continual problem, I think I'll take it back and swap. Thanks.

Turntable in new Samsung Microwave is wobbly-- turns OK but goes down if you put something on it away from the teflon rollers.


If the turntable is unstable in the oven, it's most likely an issue with the oven cavity. The tray is probably borosilicate glass, the roller guide is simple, this is something a service tech should see in person. If the oven in still under warranty you should pursue a warranty service call to make sure the oven cavity was not stamped incorrectly. Pleazer Appliance...

New unit used 3 days. Microwave beeps and screen goes to menu, or set time screen. Sometimes changes the date all by itself. Does this in the middle of the night all night long.


I advice you to contact service if it has guarantee. This seems to be a psychological problem about your oven(!). Technical person need to do an electronic research surgery on its board to see if there is any wrong thing.

The control panel no longer displays numbers


Hi,if the display is a bluish-green color when it working it is most likely a vacuum flourescent display it is a type of tube that has very fine filament wires in it heated by a low voltage supplied by the control circuit board if this voltage is missing the unit will function but you won't see any display at all sometimes the soldered connections to the tube will fail and depending what ones come loose you can lose parts of the display but if it is all out it could be the filament connections to the display tube these are usually a row of flat thin tabs that connect to the circuit board the filament connections are usually the first two on each end of the row.if they are ok then furthe troubleshooting will be needed to determine if any voltages are missing.M any repair shops just swap the bad control panal for a new one but that could get expensive.I try to service all circuit boards to the component level but sometimes you have enough problems its better to change it IF,big IF a new one is available. Good luck.

I'm trying to change the kitchen faucet and the shut off valves under the sink will not turn, I've tried to spray them with WD40 but they still won't turn. I live in a Condo so I cannot shut...


If you can't work the shutoffs on the water lines under the sink, your only choice is to contact your condo maintenance people. They need to have some way to shut the water off to your unit when they make repairs. They can tell you if there are some more valves in another area that you can access, or they may have a maintenance closet somewhere and can turn the water off for you so you can make the repair.

Sometimes you can turn a sticky valve by using a large set of channel-lock pliers or similar type on the knob so you can get leverage. They look like this if you're not familiar with the type:

pgh_pa_guy_25.jpg

If it's been a while since the valves have been used, they often don't want to move without help. Once free, they may work fine, but sometimes it's a good idea to replace the shutoff valves as part of the new faucet installation. They're not expensive and you'll know they will work if you need to shut them off in the future. Get "ball-valve stops" which make a positive shutoff. Stops that use a rubber washer can sometimes let water trickle through (or more than trickle!) when shut off. Depending on the kind of valves currently installed and the type of pipes supplying your water, you might want the condo maintenance people to do the replacement. But if 1/2-inch copper pipe is what you have and there's a couple of inches between where the pipe comes through the cabinet back or bottom and the current valves, you can just cut them off with a tubing cutter. Then you can replace them with valves that just slide over the pipe and are fastened by tightening down a compression fitting (tightening a nut, in other words).

You should also plan to use new supply lines from the shutoffs to the faucet. Again, they're cheap and the old ones can sometimes leak when you try reconnecting them. Corrosion and mineral build-up from hard water can lead to poor sealing. The current ones may also be clogged with minerals, and new ones will give your new faucet full flow.

Once you've got that problem of turning off the water supply solved, it's usually not too difficult to change the faucet. Make sure you have a basin wrench on hand; on many faucets it's impossible to reach the supply connections with any other kind. The box from the new faucet may tell you if can get away without one.

Good luck with the project, and thanks for using Fixya!

What does F2 mean on display screen? Also, keypad doesn't work sometimes. I can hit screen and then it come back on. Could it be a fuse?


HI,

The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site.
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws.

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement.

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven.


Hope this information helps.

God Bless.

NEED TO REMOVE WALL MOUNTED GE JVM1190BY002 MICROWAVE


I also have a JVM1190 and was baffled as to removal. My very handy brother solved it in two minutes. Above the door and keypad there is a long grill secured by two small squarehead (Robertson) screws. Remove the screws and grill and you will see on either side of the opening a long bolt. They go through to the back of the microwave where the support plate attached to the wall. The bolts have a slot in the middle for a flat blade screwdriver. Simply turn the bolt to release from the back plate. Make sure there is a helper underneath as the microwave is fairly heavy. Do the reverse for re-installation.

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

No one at Delonghi will help, nor will Argos where product was bought. I just want to know if my microwave is safe (bought in May 2006) - the inside of the door (looks like a plastic covering) is bubbling...


There is a fine metal mesh / screen inside the door assembly.

If any of the holes in that screen are damaged or enlarged, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door keeps it from shutting fully and flatly, then leakage is possible.

If the bubbling / deformity in the door allows moisture to collect on or near the screen, it may lead to rust, which can damage the screen and lead to leakage.

Please feel free to contact me directly (especially if you include a few photos of the door) if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
