The wiring inside the walls dictate what size of amps can go through the lines. most wiring inside the house walls is only capable of carrying 15 amps. Meaning the wire size is 14 gage. You can't change the breaker size to 20 the wire can't carry that much power. You have a window A/C that requires around 9 amps. Now somewhere in the same circuit you are using some other amps, say something like a lamp it needs 2 amps. A tv it needs 4 amps say something like a computer it needs 2 amps. Do you get the idea? A/C's need a circuit all by them selves. That is why the cord is getting burnt.

And then another problem might be the connection to the wall outlet it self might be loose meaning it isn't getting all the power it needs. With loose wires it will get hot and draw power as much as it can and not get it. So turn off the breaker and check the outlet to make sure the connections are tight and clean.

I hope this helps you indentify the problem get back with me and let me know.

What is the Lifespan of CD Drives? I have an HP dv7 that seems like the cd rom is not communicating well with the machine. Could it be software related?


Burning CD-R or DVD-R shortens the life cycle of any CD-R or DVD-R drive, while reading is generally. If you have burnt 1 disc per day, it is not surprising your DVD-RW drive is worn out.

1 detail to take into consideration: if you use ReWritable media, change them from time to time. I thought my DVD-Recorder was dead as I got a lot of non responding issue with DVD+RW media (while my computer had no problem to read these media), and finally getting rid off the old media and taking newer DVD+RW media has given the DVD-Recorder 3 more years.

Lights flicker or dim when 1 ton split a/c outdoor unit compresser starts & click sound appears from double booster or in MCB . ( BUT NOT DRIPPING )


Samsung units won't operate properly below 190 volts and over 230 volts. You need a transformer similar to what they use in marinas. In Mexico they use step up transformers on appliances because of voltage drops in the evening until the electric company winds up the supply.

Split ac runs for 2 hrs and MCB TRIPS


The most common reason is that the electrical power is not supply to the air conditioners. If the air conditioner operate for period of time then only it trips. Then , it could be possible that the MCB is under-sized. Please check the recommended MCB size.
Rate it.

Is the 60' cable (MCB-60) considered coax cable?


No, coaxial cable for closed circuit tv systems are either of the RG59U or RG6 variety. The cable you are speaking of is a cable made specifically for Samsung products,which uses a RJ11 connector that is normally found on telephone jack cords. It would be best if you stayed with the MCB-60 cable for your system.

It won't turn on


I replaced 3 capacitors and fixed this problem. They were 1-10v 1000uF and 2- 10v 3300uF electrolitic board mount capacitors. Easy to spot on the power board, the tops were bulged up. $5.54 later it works perfectly now.

Carrier air handler tonnage?


That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.

Viewing digital photos on our television through our dvd recorder


nyork3,

This might be due to a problem with the DVD unit, or some configuration change that has taken place (possibly by accident).

Question: Did you upgrade Nero prior to your attempt at burning a disk when you first noticed the problem?

Question: Did you notice any changes to the quality of the burnt copies prior to the first indication of not being able to burn copies and view them on your television?

Question: Did you or anyone else change or alter the configuration and or physical cabling prior to this problem occurring?

I would suggest first that you check the configuration and cabling and then if possible purchase a DVD head cleaning disk (just in case this is being caused by dirty optics), and if the problem continues, it my be an electronics problem with the actual DVD device. In which case the unit will have to be serviced or replaced.

As for the explanation you requested, the possibilities are:
1) Changed or altered Configuration
2) Changed or altered cabling
3) System failure (Dirty optics)
4) System failure (Electronic components)

Possible Solutions:
1) Reestablish old system configuration
2) Reconnect cabling to prior cable configuration
3) Clean dirty optics
4) Have unit repaired at qualified Electronics repair facility

I hope this helps

Thank you
