I spilled diet soda on my flat screen tv and now the colors are totally different. Can I use a fan to dry it out?

You are really in trouble with this because soda is acidic and if the power was on then the damage is really bad. It will never be the same. Replace it because when the soda dries, it leaves a carmel like mess.

Tv got wet and now will not turn on

stop trying!!

let it dry out for a few days

if it still doesnt work you could try opening up tv and try replacing fuse inside

if it was just plain water it will be ok once it dries out

if replacing fuse didnt work power supply might need to be repaired or replaced

good luck!

Take it apart and wipe everything clean....I spilled soda on my remote and the same thing happened sometimes I'd push one button and I'd turn off the TV or go to the meny when I wanted to chabge the channel... A couple of screws and it will come right apart

Samsung dlp keeps shutting off

Could be several things but the most common causes are:

1. Make sure that the lamp is working:
-make sure it lights up as viewed through the lamp access panel or the back of the set and stays lit. New lamps for most units are available on eBay for less than 100.00 with free shipping.


2. That the lamp access door safety switch is properly held in place:
-make sure that the lamp access door is in place and that the screw is snug. The symptoms of a bad / broken or open switch is that the unit will light up and the fans will spin for about 15-20 seconds then the unit will power down.

Other notes: A general comment on cleaning the fans... that is only part of a heat problem or preventive maintenance. Make sure you also clean the heat syncs of any dust. These are the fin shaped items... some are black and others are silver... found near or behind the fans. Get yourself a one or two inch SOFT bristle paint brush and gently wipe the fins clean with the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner close to the area to **** up the dust. Clean fans won't do much good if these are coated with dust and most of them are after a few months of service.

I have two 50" units and I clean them every year in the spring... before the heat of the summer hits. Unlike other TV designs, DLP's move a LOT of air so this is important.

JVC I'art flatscreen TV remote doesn't work

This maybe a sticky one.

#1. Original remote may have something spilled in it or may have dirty battery contacts.

First check battery contacts and make sure it's not corroded. Clean with small brush and baking soda. Let dry thouroughly and replace with fresh batteries.

If this isn't the problem or you tried this, then move on.

Next, Get these materials. A cloth, 50% amonia and 50% water sulution two small blad pocket knife and a philips head screwdriver.

Some remotes will have screws holding remote covers and internal board and others do not. If your remote have screws, remove them all. If not, then start prying your remote apart with your pocket knives. Do so very carefully as not to damage anything inside.

Next, lay down remote button facing down, and remove circuit board. Now, take note of rubber button pad(s) position(s) and remove them. Place these pads in your water - amonia solution.

Clean all cntacts and rubber pads, and remote housing. Now before reassembling remote, look at the IR lamp at end of board. Look underside and notice solder joints. Wriggle lamp and see if solder joints move. If so, have this resoldered. Now reassemble remote and give this a try.

#2) Codes may have not been entered right with your new universal remote. Go through all codes again just to be sure.

#3) IR receiver in set maybe damaged or not receiving power to it or the microproccessor has quit responding to the remote commands. Have a good technician check into it if problem is evident that your set has simply stopped responding to remotes.

Good luck,

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow

Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.

Remote Control

Most likely the soda gummed up the contacts inside the remote. You can disassemble the remote and clean the contacts on the pc board and, if it has one, the rubber membrane, which is conductive. Use a pencil eraser for the metal contacts on the pc board after cleaning it.
