1 Answer

Turns on and off

Hello, I have a similar problem to the other person that posted sis and I were in the middle of watching something on regular tv when all of a sudden the tv turned off. We have owned the tv for 1 year and 4 mos...therefore RCA is not covering. So I unplugged and plugged back if I press a power button on the tv or on the remote it just turns on, turns off, turns on turns off...and then stops! HELP!!!!!!

    Tv turns on and off.

    I can watch tv for 10 minute or so, then the screen freezes as if someone pushed pause (even) on regular tv, then it cuts off for about 40seconds, then come back on by itself. I have did nothing to try to fix this problem as of yet. I only bought the tv 35 days ago from Walmart.

    I bought my big screen RCA 52' about a year ago... and it turns on and off by itself, changes menu settings and lowers volume on its own. I called a TV repair shop and I spoke to this repair man and before I told him what brand of TV it is he already knew. I believe its a defect in the TV's. He talked about a button that may have gotten stuck. He made it sound to easy. I would like to know if it is fixable at home b/c I really do not want to pay that much money to take it to a repair shop. If it is really easy to repair.

    Hello, I'm experiencing the same problem with my RCA d52w19. The green light turns on initially after hitting the power button then approx 10-15 seconds later it turns then off permanently. I started experiencing a problem with the tv about a month ago only when I initially turned the tv on. It would shut off, I'd wait approx 30 seconds then hit the power button and it would stay on. Not anymore. I can't get it to stay on. I tried the florescent bulb thing.... we even changed the flyback transformer. Nothing. If anyone found a fix could ya e-mail me? It's a 52 inch, I dont have a vehicle large enuf to get it to a repair shop so they want to charge me 80 bucks each way for pickup plus 100 just to look at it?!

    Thanks a bunch!

I want to know the value of my ornet antimagnetic pocket watch i think its from hong kong and this watch is old the case of this watch have a man fishing somewere in the river with lots of the treeson his...

It's rarely possible to give any kind of definitive valuation without seeing a watch (pocket or wrist) in person, but it sounds like you have an inexpensive pocket watch that was probably made in the 1960s, less likely made in the 1970s or 1950s. The use of the term "antimagnetic" on the watch, as opposed to "17 jewels," suggests that the watch is powered by a 1-3 jewel pin lever movement, rather than a more expensive movement. These movements can keep quite good time, but they are not valued by watch collectors unless the rest of the watch is of compelling interest.

In terms of value, your pocket watch has more value as a piece of jewelry than as a vintage timepiece. Most watch collectors would not be particularly interested in your watch. In the United States, I've seen similar watches, in running condition, sell for $5-10 at vintage watch fairs. Around where I live (the Northeast), as a piece of jewelry, your watch may be worth twice that but not more. I cannot speak to pricing in other parts of the country or internationally.

3 things. If you hit the windows button does the taskbar show on the bottom? Also, right click in the middle of the desktop and click on "Personalize" (Vista) to change the screen saver and see if that fixes your problem. Assuming you can see the "Start" button, do the following: Right click on Start, click Properties, click on the Taskbar tab and make sure the box is checked next to "keep taskbar on top of all windows"
