Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Electronic gadgets I bought LED string lights from China which worked when plugged in but immediately began to smoke and melt at the globe points. The company replaced them but the second set did exactly the same thing. The voltage specs are listed at 110V-220V and I'm in Australia where we use 230V but this shouldn't be the problem. What's causing the thing to smoke and melt and how can I fix this problem? Cheers - ilumio

O.k you must see if there are some switch for to put the input in 110Vac or 220Vac. since you have 230vac in australia, if you are in 110vac, the lights will burn inmediately.
If you have in 22ovac switch, if you have 230vac, the tolerance voltage +-10% is NOT problem for to burn, is BAD design for the manufacturer. However you must try to install in another receptacle since, you can have some overload in the line. use the amperimeter.
God bless you

Why did it suddenly stop working?


the "pat answer" is the magic smoke leaked out. all electronics work on magic smoke, once it gets out of a device, the device wont work anymore. OK smoke comes from burned out devices. Point the remote at a digital camera and watch through the view finder, does the led in the remote light up? (you cant see it with the human eye) if so next step. plug the dongle into the TV, select the correct input and point the remote directly at the window on the dongle and try to operate the fire stick, if it works, you may need an HDMI EXTENSION cable (male to female) to move the dongle to a position where it isn't blocked from the view of the remote. Also, can you operate it from your computer using Google Chrome and the correct firestick extension? (incase the remote isn't infrared operated)

I have an American DJ Hyper Gem LED light and have used it at 4-5 dances...its okay in small halls, but I have a friend that also bought one and his is super bright and throws the effect far, mine does...


Uncover it... you will probably find that some of the LED's are not lighting. OFTEN soldering on circuit boards OR a bad LED in a string kills several like Christmas strings. More than this you need to be somewaht adept at electronics to repair it.

What is the gprs settings for china phone 9000c blackberry clone for globe provider?


bought a similar unit yesterday blackberry 9000c and Im quite lucky to be able to successfully configure its gprs settings for globe and sun.

If you're too lazy to manually tinker with the settings, however, you could opt to text SET to 211 and follow the instructions. It'll cost you, though, and you'll need to key in a PIN (1234).
Once you've entered the values stated above, you'll need to activate them. To do this, simply text MMS ON and 3G ON to 333.

Please describe your issue or question (*) Last year we bought four of the Gemmy Color Chasing Light Show strings with the multi-color LED tear-drop shaped bulbs (#0293751). All four strings worked...


tombonw, I noticed this problem last year also, did the same string replacement as you, but by seasons end the new strings I bought had the same problem with a few doing something different. Did you ever find a good solution or hear from anyone else?
