This often happens when the logic board or the screen itself is is about to give in. Some times it can be a build up of static which does happen with these HDTV's, Try the following

  • Plug the TV directly into the wall, no extensions or adapters
  • Turn off the wall socket
  • Press and hold the power button on the TV in for about 30 seconds
  • Turn on the power at the wall back on and check you TV
This is called a static discharge and often will fix issues like this. If you still have this issue you may have to take it to a repairer.

Whirlpool oven wont start, is there away to light the pilot?


You don't say what model you have. That being said, I highly doubt it uses a pilot light. It most likely uses a glow bar igniter to ignite the gas. Take the bottom of the oven cavity off (remove the racks and you'll see a couple screws in the back on the bottom. Remove those and the bottom of the oven cavity should lift up).

Once you have the bottom cover off, turn on your oven and watch the glow bar. If it glows bright white, it's good and your gas valve is most likely bad. If it doesn't glow at all, or it's not very bright, or it has one bright white spot on it and the rest of it looks a little yellowish orange, then you need to replace the glow bar igniter.

Anyway, that's where I'd start.

Good luck!

I think better to replace the set as all this sounds like a light engine failing.

Samsung LCD TV 46 inch model LN46A550 has bright pink glow where it should be light (sky, lamp, etc)


My guess would be that you have a CCFL lamp that is failing. They will give off a pinkish tint when they are about to fail. But I would encourage you to get a professional diagnoses.

Oven will not light. it is a frigidaire model #


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

  1. Defective thermostat
  2. Defective selector switch
  3. Defective gas safety valve
  4. Defective gas valve coils

2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough


Hi Whitneyford
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
Good luck.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

Inside of your TV their is a fluid that keeps the tubes cool. Over the years this fluid will turn cloudy and cuase the screen to look dull, bright white, have halos, etc. You can get the fluid over the internet from various sources or your can get a complete kit including repair instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com.

Lately, all "white" objects, text, spaceships, etc. have "glows"


Do you also have a glow around the projected image, try projecting on a white wall without any borders. The cause for this is dirt inside the lens elements diffusing the light.

No heat


If your dryer has an access panel at the bottom front remove it.  Start the dryer in a cycle and watch the burner area. You should see the ignitor start to glow. After a few seconds of it glowing you should hear a click and the gas come on and ignite. If the ignitor does not glow, look on the top of the air duct to the left of the gas valve. You will see 2 temp sensors. One will be white with  2 small blue wires going to it.    UNPLUG THE DRYER NOW    Remove the wires and connect them together.   BE SURE THEY DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE 

Plug dryer back in and start dryer again and see if ignitor glows and burner lights. If it works now, you need a new thermal fuse. You also want to make sure the vent duct is not clogged with lint or the hose is not kinked.  I DO NOT recommend that you run the dryer with this bypassed. It is a safety mechanism.

If this is not the problem or your dryer is not front servicable, post back and i will try to walk you through the problem.
