This is a similar repair, but the resistors you need to reflow solder on ae on the bottom of the circuit board, not the top like the other models. The reference numbers for the resistors are R130, R131, R133, R135, R136, R137, R138, R139, R140, AND R141.

They are 4.7 ohm resistors and should have "4R7" printed on the top of them. They are not as close together as the other model has them, but if you take the board out of the unit you should be able to find them. Put just a touch of solder on both sides of each resistor. This should be plenty to fix this problem.

It is also possible that you may have another cause for this problem, but this is the most likely cause.

I hope this is some help for you. Let me know if you need further instructions.

Where do i attach the PTO deck engagement spring on the cutting deck of the 2009 cub cadet LTX 1040 PTO deck engagement cable attachment on the cutting deck

Wherever it was that you took it off from. If it broke, then look to see where a spring might be while you have a friend slowly engage and disengage the assembly. If it's an electric engagement situation, bring it to a shop. If you don't have a friend, sorry. I'll be your friend.

Similar question as everyone else. I bought a Sony KDL-46W4100 LCD tv in 2008, when I turned it on yesterday I noticed a thin red line on the left side of the screen about 3 inches from side which runs...

I just read some Sony literature about T-Con issues and how to determine if the problem is the T-Con or the LCD panel. One of the examples they gave was exactly as you are describing. Unfortunately according to Sony the panel has failed and the only way to fix the problem would be replacement which is very cost prohibitive. Your other option would be to contact Sony and make them aware of your situation. Try speaking with as many people as possible and write down names. I have heard of times that they replaced the TV for free but to be honest I don't know of anyone who has been that lucky. Their number is 1-239-768-7547 Monday through Friday 9:00am to 8:00pm ET.
