Question about Televison & Video

TV simply won't turn on

I've checked all the usual suspects. One night it was working (on and off) and the next morning I turn it on and get a signal that says it will power off in 4 minutes.

Can't get it to come back on.

    Not too much more I can add. It was working perfectly the previous night. In the morning I grabbed the remote to click it on and it came on but it was just a gray screen, then a note popped up saying it was going to automatically power off. It did and it didn' come back on. Tried turning it on both with the remote and then on the back of the set nothing. I did call the cable company to see if it was their issue. They came out and checked it. It wasn't. The cable was working fine. I don't know much about TV's but maybe a loose connection on a relay switch or something loos in the power supply circuit? If so, can I fix myself. The TV repair guy wants $95 just to come out and look!

    The TV will not turn on. There were no power surges.
    We took it apart and checked the switch with the power on and it came on at that time. A few days later it would not turn on.

I would take the back of the cover off. Then I would just blow every bit of the dust and lint that is in there. From your description it is difficult to tell what the problem is electronically. But it is a good bet that it just needs a good blowing out and cleaning on the circuit boards because the lint and dust with the moisture during the year become conductive and emit small electrostatic charges. The service man he would check that first anyway. do that part yourself. God bless

Can anyone tell me why all of my BBC digital channels have no signal at night or the early morning, but work again during the day!? thanks

Check the signal strength. If the signal strength is weak, this can happen to digital channels. For analogue channels, the fault due to weak signal will be a grainy picture.

Ln40b650t1fxza won't turn on, no power

The power supply capacitors would be my first guess. Open up the set and check the power supply capacitors. If you see any with bulging tops, that is most likely your problem. If the caps are bad, they can be bought for about $5-$10.

I've 2000 Mercedes Benz ML 320.One night I backed up & parked in the Garage the next morning it won't go forward. I noticed the that REAR WHEEL on passenger side was locked up. What's

The only suggestion is to place the vehicle on
stands & remove the wheel to check out the issue

To speculate from the internet-- is just that.

To have something happen while you sleep
is odd,so I would be inclined to go with something
like an electronic parking brake issue,if that applies

My nokia e7 won,t turn on. Worked fine when i put it on charge the night before and the next morning the screen was blank and i didn't managed to get any response out of my phone

I had the same problem with my E7, if you've already tried holding the power button down for 10 seconds then you'll need to remove and replace the battery, that fixed mine straight away. Just follow the guide below

Good morning, My tv is only 3 1/2 years old. It just stop working, I changed the batteries in the remote and still won t work, I will try to turn it on, it comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off...

Hi, there must be something wrong in the power supply circuit, usually because of bad or off value components, if the TV actually gets a picture and cutts off, the power supply could be the circuit to suspect, if the tv does not give a picture, it only does the click and the power light turns on but nothing else happens, there could be something else wrong besides the power supply circuit.
