Question about Sharp 13K-M100 13" TV

Gfci protects 4 receptacles downstram from it.If I disconnect from downstream receptacles it will not trip.This is on kitchen counter-top circuit.All wiring and devices are only 6 months old.Someone told me maybe some moisture got in one of the receptacles.I was going to try disconnecting farthest receptacle and try gfci and see if it trips and then work closer to gfci and see where problem lies.I don't know what else to do.I tried 2 different gfci's.Any ideas?Thanks,joe

Yes , your approach to troubleshooting is a sane one .. start at one end and disconnect things untill the fault goes away. There may be a loose wire, one rubbed by a mounting screw, or a broken wire that is grounding the circuit. all these things should be looking for as you take each receptacle out and check it ..

There can be a few different reason for a trip. 1. Amps exceed rating off GFCI ie 15 amp receptacle can only handle up to 15 amp anymore and it will trip. 2. miss wiring; neutral must be on white screws hot on black and ground, green also inlet power (line) must be on bottom screws, outlet or load must be on top 3, a short, whether it be neutral or hot touching something in the box. Frayed wire, wire next to side of interior of box or yes moisture. Also a short in an appliance aven a new one can cause a trip. Remember if the refrigerator is on this same circuit, which is not a good idea it can cause a trip. At start up the fridge can spike to near 15 amps and a voltage spike can cause a gfci to trip. There are 20amp GFCI's so that can be your last resort, if all else fails.

How to remove protection mode of Sony TV kV 2565

If the set switches ON in protection mode, there should be a short circuit to any of the Hi-current consuming circuit. The probable cause are many, and you should disconnect the supply to various stages, and have to switch the set ON, after each time to detect when the it switches ON without any protection. Check these:
1-Desolder out the Horizontal output transistor [Q802 - 2SC4927] from circuit, and switch the set ON.
2- Still the set switches On with protection, check the resistance of the collector terminal to Ground of the circuit board, where the H-out transistor was. It should not show a very low resistance. If it shows such, check all the capacitors connected with the collector terminal of the horizontal output transistor for short or leaky.
3- If all the components are found OK, and still the set switches On with protection mode, desolder out the LOT from the circuit and check the resistance of its Pin 4 to Pin 9. If it shows continuity by any means, the LOT is defective. Its winding short. Replace it.
4- disconnect the supply voltage of the vertical scan output IC [IC551 - uPc1498H] and switch ON the set, and see the protection status. If this IC is short, the set will show this symptom.
You should check your own way too, to detect the fault. Anyway, there is a short circuit, which overloads the SMPS. We have to check and find out the reason. OK?

Tv bord fuse damage replace the same type again damage what problem

A fuse does not trip to annoy you. It trips because the circuitry is taking to much current. This can be just a little to much, taking it to trip after a few minutes or hours, or lots to much, tripping as soon as you switch on. Can be caused by a defective semiconductor, or a capacitor with a shortage. If you can't see anything wrong on the board, like a capacitor, wilt a rounded head, or a burned out semiconductor or even a resistor, you have to find out by measuring what could be wrong. Without the skills, don't even go there. It could be dangerous because of the high voltages in the TV.

My rca projection tv powers on then off what can it be

Many conditions can cause this...too many to be specific. A short on the circuit board, thermal protection opens when too much heat trips the fuse. A bad power supply, leaking tubes, dirt/dust collection on main board, etc.

Tripping off

All crt tvs will fail after a certain age because the electrolytic capacitors near the horizontal and vertical output transistors /(ic s) dry up with age. At this point you start having lines across your screen in even increments. At this point the voltages are swaying and components start having too much current or voltage getting to them until they blow. Often this takes out the voltage rectifier and or diodes and resistors in the power supply area. If the high voltage area overheats it can take out the flyback or the high voltage capacitor or burn traces on the circuit board etc. An adjustment on the flyback is only done to tune in the picture so that that lines don't show. There may also be a main ic or EPROM (erasable programmable read only memory) that can fail. Then there are x-ray protection circuits, or the thermistor that is supposed to fail in the event of a surge etc.

Clicks when i turn it on like it always has but now almost immediately clicks again shutting it off and then repeats click on and click off and then remains off. what is wrong? RCA Model f27665

Hi... maybe some loose solder or there's a defective part that tripping the circuit protection of the power supply circuit. If soldering don't solve the problem. some parts must be defective. you have to be familiar with TV parts and testing components to do this job, the regulator IC should be checked if still good then also the horizontal output transistor. these two are common causes of tripping in power supply section. many parts and replacement for these components available in the market. thanks......hope this help marmeto12_22.jpg

Both of my tv's died yesterday. My apex wont turn on anymore an the panasonic has no picture. Whats wrong.

As an electrician, when someone loses more then 1 item of electronics in 1 day, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike, accompanied by a lack of surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360. Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house protection, or per-circuit protection at
the breaker box, where a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.
If desperate, you could try replacing the entire power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).
