    I have a Proview RX-326 that suddenly stopped working. The power light is on and turns green when the Power button is pushed. But there is no picture, sound, menus, etc. It will not turn off except by pulling the power cord once you get it powered on.

    Any thoughts?

Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote the indicator light went out....piece of crap is six months old, cant find any info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
So i took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, i found six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middle of that board which looked ok but blew out the bottom.I replaced them, and im watching it as i type.
Its fairly easy but if your not comfortable soldering on a cheap circuit board, take it to someone.
I hope it helps, i think this repair will fix the other Trutech models with the same problems.

When the power is turned on at the wall, the automatic spark that lights the gas top comes on on the two right burners, and wont stop even after the light is lit. What can I do about it?

Behind the knobs for the right burners are 2 electrical switches that start the spark when you turn the knobs on. One of those switches is bad and stuck in the on position. You have to pull the knobs off and remove the trim behind the knobs to get to the switches.

some tv's always have standby light on, even iff you turn off by tv button. solution 1: with light on, press a number on remote. solution 2: with light on press stand-by button on remote. solution 3: with light on push the 'on' button on the tv set. solution 4: unplug tv set, wait a few seconds then plug back in, if no light then turn on tv using button on the set, and then channel number.

I have an apex tv and for a long time now ive noticed that when i turn it on i have to press the video button on the remote 5 times for the tv to actually turn on. this was always annoying and sometimes...

flyback transformer is deffective (below is its picture) - if you have experience in servicing line ( electronics ) then change this particular component otherwise if you have a friend who is in servicing line ( electronics) then ask him to remove this particular component - take to electronic shop - buy same type ( equivalent will not work ) flyback transformer - below that 8 or 9 pins will be there - check whether they are same as in the old one --- then fix back to the mainboard ---- 2 or 3 knobs will be there on it ----- after switching on tv using suitable screw driver adjust those knobs slowly & carefully until you get clear picture.................. remember while adjusting knobs your hands should not touch any part of the tv .............. 100 % guarantee again your tv works normally - GUARANTEE

Its a tiny 42'' plasma tv which was working perfectly until my grandaughter dropped the remote control and the tv went off and now wont switch on even though the stand by light is on.It wont even turn on...

Try removing the batteries from the remote control, as a button may be stuck and is causing a repeated signal to be sent to the TV, possibly overriding any manual button actions.

Also unplug the TV for a few minutes and then plug it back in. You said that it wouldn't turn on when pressing the channel buttons on the TV, try the power button instead.

Tv wont turn on

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
