Sylvania SRT2232S 32" was working

The problem is in the vertical deflection circuits which is responsible for giving a full picture. Since the set is 8 years old the money would be better spent on a new tv since more frequent break downs in other parts of the set would be more likely due to age.

Pentax A10 Camera turns on and off immediately


I am having the same problem with an A10 that I have. I can turn it on by holding down the viewscreen button and view the images that are in memory, but if I just turn it on the lens never opens and the camera immediately turns itself off.

Just wondered if you'd had any responses that helped you diagnose the problem. If you could email me at with any info I'd appreciate it.

Thanks much,
