Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Samsung 50" fades when I turn on Vent in bathroom

Whenever I turn on the vents on the bathrooms the picture fades to black and then come back on. The volume and everything else remains. I connected it to a different circuit on the house and flipped the vent and it continues to do it. The house is less than 6 months old so I don't know if the electrician did something wrong. The TV is less than a month old and I have directv so what could be causing the problem?

Thanks, MannyB

    Yes is was, the electrician came back and we found some problems. Like he had the christmas plugs wired wrong. He had two hots wires in the same circuit making it a 220 and it burned the switch. Those were fixed but it did not fix the picture ficking. It only fades with ALL the vents in ALL 4 bothrooms. I did remove several Ceiling fans and some light fixtures and I noticed that he failed to connect the ground wire on most of them, could this cause a problem? Also, I have Directv, the Directv signal that goes to the Plasma TV that fades also continues to the kitchen LCD tv, I noticed that tv does not fade, could it be a problem with the Plasma TV? Thanks again for your help. The electrician stated that maybe we should take the TV to another house and try it, what do you think? Since we moved into this house, we lost the picture on an old tv, an older coffee maker and a brand new microwave over. I don't know if it was just coincidence or a real problem.

    Thanks again.

I would DEFFINITELY call the electricians back!!!!! I am a electrician and I would be very interested on what the electricians did, but something is definitly wrong, are you sure it is a different circuit you tried, try an extension cord to a kitchen or bath room outlet and double check, hope this helps.

    I am glad to hear some problems were found but I can only imagine if they did not wire the grounds through what else didnt get grounds? I would go get a outlet tester and check and LABEL every thing you can. The electrical inspector SHOULD HAVE FOUND THESE PROBLEMS I would identify these problems make a floor plan electrical layout write down what you found call back the electrical inspector see if they can find it (test everyone) see if they know there job, I couldn't sleep at night knowing I left someones home electricaly UNSAFE. I have been an electrician for 25+ years with 1000s of homes wired. I think you have bigger problems then what has been found maybe bad ground on the service,open grounds , ground loop,hot nuetral hearing what the electricain didnt or did wrong I would call a qualified electricain to come back.Definately not the one who screwed up,I think you might have a hot nuetral running around when one of these fans are turned on.When you find out what is wrong please let me know and tell them to buy you a couple of TVs, your plasma will not last long wired Iam in Mn.

When do you need to vent a bathroom sink?

You always need to vent a sink. If you do not vent the sink it will create a vacume and **** water, or air from the nearest fixture.. example, if you connect to the sewer line near a bath tub, when you run the sink water it will **** air from the bath tub drain. If it sucks a lot of air, you will smell the sewer odor since the water is no longer blocking it.
If you cannot run the vent to the roof, there is an in wall vent valve called a studor vent that may work. Get with someone at Lowes or Home depot to show you one.

I purchased an aqua star 1600h-lp to be installed in a cottage. Question is, the cottage is heated with a large wood stove/fireplace. The water heater is located in a bathroom at the other end of the...

I would say that the wood fire/stove must have a heck of a draw to affect the bathroom heater. Maybe a separate air supply from outside via a pipe,to the stove meshed off against vermin would decrease the problem. Plus it could stop cold air being sucked across the room from an outside door.
Downdraft through the heater could happen with either vertical or horizontal vent. More important is the direction of the prevailing wind [horizontal] ingress of water/snow etc [vertical]
We often use the separate air supply in the UK and if the pipe bore is large enough 4" plus it seems to work ok.

condensation is created by 2 exteme temperature change.
looks like the loft space is colder than the rest of the house.
first make sure there is not blockage in the vent. then warp the vent with fiberglass as much as you can. it doesn't matter what R value the fiberglass is. just enough to cut the temperture change.
you still going to need a exhust fan in the bathroom.
