The TV is already ground by being plugged in. Any appliance with current is going to have a magnetic field, and be prone to collect dust.I dont want to sound like some infomercial, but "periodic cleaning" is best, plus cleaning the dust filter on your central heating or air if you have it. You can find some anti-static spray cleaner for LCD's. Make sure you spray it on your lint-free cloth, not on the screen itself.

If you have carpet, it just makes it worse. Maybe you can buy one of those standalone air cleaners/deionizers that remove particles from the air for the room-- they sell them at bed bath and beyond and these places.

Good luck!

When turned off the tv makes a whining sound (not the expected whining noise) and then sounds like a wheel (like on Wheel of Fortune) slowly winding down. Yesterday it didn't come on (sound, no picture) so...


The whining if it sounds like a mosquito type whine! it can be a capacitor, i have same issue, you can usually hear when u are on standby but if your hearing like a "wheel of fortune"! and slowing down would likely indicate it's a fan which is possibly covered in dust and the whining is the fan stopped trying to power forward or it slowly moving and slowing down. If you think it's the fan you should unplug your TV to avoid the fan burning out then have someone who knows what their doing take a look at than fan for you and clean the dust away from it, you may be able to get some access through vents in the side and can try your vacuum cleaner in those vents while TV is unplugged but i'd not go messing inside a TV without wearing some rubber gloves!
Looks like the engineer would need to remove TV casing, check fan to see if it is blocked with dust or not, or if just failing for other reason then either clean or replace. If you don't get it done and the fan fails to cool the TV your risking other vital components overheating and breaking for good so best get it looked at, sounds like the fan to me...

My fan wont stop running inside of my PS3 console. What is the best way to remove lint and dust from inside of my console? I would like to clean it myself.


Best thing to use for cleaning dust out of electronics devices is an air duster.
Example found here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/dust-and-dirt-removers-28999
You should be able to pick one up easily from a local computer or electronics store.
When you have it you'll just need to blast the air through some of the open vents to remove any built up dust.
Hope this helps.

What is the best thing to clean the screen of this TV?


Use the cheap eye glass cleaner Wal Mart sells in the eye department.  Their cleaner is safe for glass surfaces, cleans real nice, and helps repel dust.

Can ungrounded outlet cause damage to flatscreens?


If ever an energy pike occurs, it would most likely damage the TV for sure. A grounded outlet helps divert power surges to the ground. Sometimes grounded outlets can only handle so much overload, but never 100% guarantee.

Best protection for a flat-screen is a really good surge protector bar. The best ones cost about $100 - $150. Repairing a TV damaged from a power spike would cost about $400 - $600 from a TV repair shop. So, protecting the TV is a good idea considering the cost of repair.

My A-9 Coffee grinder no longer grinds coffee. Have cleaned it and checked it out and nothing. The motor runs but no grounds. Thanks for your help!


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

I have a Divina Deluxe and the coffee grinder is moving but it does not appear to be grinding it justs runs until the cycle stops. The machine turns on and gets ready but not grind. I have opened it up and...


Remove brew unit and check the grounds chute from the grinder, if that is clear, then re-insert unit, then when the grinder is grinding adjust to a coarser grind.

Chewing up Chain Drive


There is most likely a problem with the balance of the door. Release the door from the opener by pulling the red handle and lift the door manually. You should not have to apply more than 20lbs to lift it. When the door is at each hinge point and all the way up, it should stay by itsself. If it does not, the springs need to be adjusted or you will continue to replace gears.

Sony Trinitron 13 inch older model tv pops & smells at plug


Hi,

If everything still works OK, then chances are the problem is even before the internal power supply. This could be a component that simply is nearing its lifeend such as a capacitor to ground, a VDR (voltage dependent resistor), a line filter (technically just a coil of wire), or limiting resistor in line with the degaussing coil. This should be a relatively easy/low cost fix and any qualified TV repair professional should be able to do the job pretty quick.

In some instances, there could be nothing wrong with the TV. It is also possible that the smell and pop is an HV (high voltage) discharge due to accumulated dirt, dust and grime anywhere near the anode cap (end od red wire to picture tube) or the FBT (flyback transformer).

Of course, the best would be to seek the services of a qualified TV repair professional since an onsite diagnosis would best serve your purpose.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Need to disassemble Mitsubishi VS-6041 60 in Rear Projection


Wow, You are asking for a complete disasemmbly. If this is necessary, you have to remove any screws you can find that are connected to the front panel. Usually they are in the top of the set ( you'll find them after removing the mirror panel and mirror ). I wouldn't remove any tubes as the tube convergence would have to be all reset and that would require a cross hair generator. I do hope this has helped in some way, but all I can do is send you my best wishes as I certainaly don't suggest disassembly if there is any other way. Good luck
