I had my camera in my purse and when i took it out and turn it on. my camera turns on white screen but with a black liquid spot on it. is it fixable? please help my camera is brand new.

Your purse would have happened to be black and the camera on the outside pocket would it?

If so and it was in heat then the LCD screen has super heated, it might come back after a few hours to cool. There is operating temperature ranges listed in the manual extreme heat and cold will just kill most digital point and shoot type cameras, sometimes they come back sometimes not.

I would also take the battery out of it and let it sit for a few hours to cool DON'T put it in a cold place let it come up to room temperature gradually.

Powers on and off all the time like a thermal switch is tripping when I put a fan behind it it stops

It may be a safety thermistor component inside tripping as it overheats just as you suspect - working like an electrical fuse, but responds to heat instead. They can go faulty and start turning the power off too soon

Another possible cause is a dry solder joint (very common problem). It's ok while cool, but after a few minutes of being on, the heat in TV causes the tiny solder break to widen just enough to switch it off.

If you can leave it on with the fan blowing on it, and it does keep going on & off without you touching it, then i'd say it's 95% certainly a thermistor.

If it turns off, and you have to turn it back on manually (it goes onto standby or off completely), then it could be either, causing the problem.

Another final thing I see as possible is, the screens inverter can be heating up and going off (the TV will stay on really, but the screen will go black as if it's off, and when cooled even slightly it can turn back on again. You can check this easily by putting a bright lamp close up to the screen. The picture will still be there, but very very dark - a flat light gently touching against the screen will allow you to just about see the TV picture.

(the screen inverter is a special high powered circuit that takes a lower voltage (usually about 12 volts) and converts into a huge amount needed to work the powerful bulbs in TV screens.

Outside ac unit operates but no blower. Fan "on" does not operate from thermostat. However "heat" works fine furnace and blower. ???

Go to furnace and shut off power, remove blower door compartment. Inside you will find a control board where thermostat wires are connected. Should look something like this:

R-Red Wire= Power
G-Green Wire= Fan
W-White Wire=Heat
Y=Yellow or Blue Wire=Cooling.

It sounds like you have a bad motor speed. So try this:

With Power Still Off, on the same control board there is a terminal usually marked Cool and Heat. There should also be a couple of terminals that are named park. The wires hooked to these are the fan wires..

Exchange the Heat and Cool wires on the terminal board. Put everything back together and try cooling again, if the fan comes on
then you have a burnt out motor speed. Go back to furnace and change
the heat and cool wires around, next if Cooling had the black wire hooked to it, put yellow or blue on Cooling and black to park.

Note: The reason why you put the blower door back on is because it
has a door switch that if not properly seated, you wont be able to power
up anything

My tv turns on properly but after a few minutes it goes blank

you are having a heat related issue and the component or parts are failing. using a hair dryer blowing into back of set will make it black out and a portable fan should cool it enough to come back on. unless you know a good cheap tech, repairs are costly. i left the business when t.v' s became disposable.

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy

Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.

LG 32LC2R screen goes black after 2 sec.

My LG 32lc7d 32 inch TV is 9 months old (December 2007 to September 2008) and now the screen goes black with sound and the channels will change I can hear them. Also when the TV is fine if I touch the remote it freezes the picture, so turn it off and on witch does not respond to the remote for five seconds, turn it on again & it works for 2 to 3 hours then same problem. LG claim its a software problem, well I got link to the firmware update down load to my memory stick and stuck it in the usb port on the back of the TV, software update fine no problem, TV reset all my preference are lost no problem I can set it how I like it ,but now worst things are happening the screen goes black after 15 to 20 minutes and no sound now ,so the firmware did not work but cased more problems and less viewing time .NNNOOO more LG product for me in life again .
I bought the TV for $1000 us and the DVD up converting player for $110 + sound system
So I could 1 remote to make life easer for me, but life is better for LG now since they have my money and all I have are their problems.
We should come together and attack LG about this problem or boycott them and their products for good, hundreds of thousands of people have this problem and nothing.
What’s the sense of a warranty if there no fix for your problems and you can’t get your money back. I have bought so many LG products and now no fix. There are millions of people who don’t have a $1000 us in there bank account..
I now feel like I was held at gun point and robbed by millionaire.
