How do I reapply frame on a 32 inch Emerson TV?


Looks like a contact strip. Put the frame in the approximate position it would be in when properly installed. Then look at the board, there should be a plastic holder sticking up from the board. Carefully lift up on the locking strip, insert the contact strip then push the lock tab down to lock it in place. Look at the holder carefully to locate the pins to make sure you get the ribbon to properly mate with the pins. Looks like the white square on the trim piece may be where it goes.

Weather strip coming off of windshield


You can just add some urethane to secure the weather stripping. If the windshield is ever replaced, they'd simply remove the stripping anyways. Depending on the urethane, there may be different cure times, but it will do the trick. Alternatively, the weather stripping will not affect the seal of the windshield so even if you prefer to remove it, there won't be any issues.

Machine will not boot up shuts down after 5 secs


My question is have you checked the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard? THOROUGHLY checked them.
(Motherboard out in hand, good lighting, and perhaps a magnifying glass)
If the Power Supply voltages are 3.3 Volts. 5 Volts, and 12 Volts, the capacitors on the motherboard are next in the diagnoses.

[ What was the Voltages, by the way? ]

Electrolytic Capacitors are used as Filters, and Voltage Regulators, on the motherboard.
The ones used as voltage regulators are in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

Part of what the motherboard voltage regulator does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor.

The Processor must have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage, and it MUST stay within a tight tolerance range.
Too little, or too much, and the Processor turns off. (BIOS turns it off)

{Capacitors in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, that regulate voltage for the Processor, are in a Series circuit. If just ONE goes bad, the circuit is down }

An Electrolytic Capacitor used on motherboards, and in Power Supply's, for personal computers, is a Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor.

Radial refers to the design. With the radial design the leads, (2), both come out of the same end,

http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/electronic-components/capacitive-products/leaded-electrolytic.aspx

Basic construction of an Electrolytic Capacitor is;

1) An outside case (Shell) that resembles an aluminum Coca-Cola can, with no top, or bottom.

2) The top cover is a Vented Cover. Flat aluminum thin disk with a shape etched partway into it. The shape is usually an X or K.

3) The bottom cover is a Bung. A synthetic rubber disk shaped piece, that has the two leads coming through it. (Positive and Negative lead. Lead.......think stiff wire )

4) There are three strips inside the capacitor's case.

A) Conducting Strip. Also known as the Positive strip.
A thin strip of metal aluminum foil, that has the Positive lead connected to it.

B) Non-Conducting Strip. Also known as the Negative strip.
A thin strip of metal aluminum foil also, but has a non-conducting medium applied to it.
The Negative lead attaches to it.

C) A paper-like strip soaked with Electrolytic Paste.

The paper-like paste soaked strip, is laid in-between the two metal foil strips, and all three are rolled up tightly.

Point?
Computer design engineers know that Electrolytic Capacitors will eventually fail. They are the weakest link. They slowly fail because the paste is a chemical. The chemical breaks down.

For this reason, the engineers use capacitors that are rated at twice of what is needed.
As the capacitor breaks down to what is 50 percent of it's capacitance, it is still 100 percent good, as far as what is needed for that circuit.

When an Electrolytic Capacitor breaks down, it is the paste inside that is breaking down.
The paste develops a gas, (Hydrogen Gas), and the gas pushes against the seals, at the Top, and Bottom.
(Vented Cover at Top, Bung at Bottom)

The seals may then be compromised.
1) The X or K, at the top in the Vented Cover, may break open, and paste will slowly ooze out.

2) The edge around the disk shaped Vented Cover may break open, and paste may slowly ooze out.

3) The synthetic rubber disk shaped Bung at the bottom, may have one edge slightly pushed out, (Usually makes the capacitor tilt on the motherboard), and paste will ooze out.

So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates at a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

In hardware monitor i see bad values of voltage, if i measure with a multimeter the values are ok. after about 3 minutes the pc shout down. i cant find manual or schematic all tested links dont...


1) Do the voltage values stay the same right before the shutdown, or do they drop?

2) Plus, Voltage values; Are you getting a full 3.3 Volts, 5 Volts, and 12 Volts?

3) Check the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard for visual signs of failure.

A) Electrolytic Capacitors are used on the motherboard as Filters, or Voltage Regulators, (Motherboard voltage regulator circuit)

B) Computer designers know that Electrolytic Capacitors break down over time. This is why they use capacitors that are rated at 50 percent more than is needed. When the capacitor (Electrolytic) breaks down to the 50 percent level, it is still good enough.

C) The Electrolytic Capacitors used on the motherboard are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors.

Basic construction of a R.A.E.C. is;
1) A cylindrical aluminum case shaped like a Coca-Cola can, but with no top, or bottom

2) Top seal is a Vent Cover. A flat round thin disk composed of Aluminum, that has a shape etched partway into it, in the middle. Usually a K or X.

3) Bottom seal is a Bung. A flat round thin disk composed of synthetic rubber.

4) Three strips.
A) One strip is metal tinfoil composed of Aluminum.
B) One strip is also aluminum tinfoil, but has a non-conducting medium applied to it.
C) One strip is a paper-like strip that is soaked with Electrolytic Paste.

Strip A is the Conducting strip. It has the Positive lead, (Think wire) attached to it.
Strip B is the Non-Conducting strip. It has the Negative lead attached to it.

Strip C is placed in-between Strip A and B, and all three are rolled up tightly.
The Positive lead, and Negative lead, poke down through the Bung at the bottom of the capacitor.

When the capacitor starts to fail a gas is developed inside. (Hydrogen Gas) The paste breaks down, and makes the gas.

The gas expands, and breaks the top Vent Cover open at the K or X, AND/OR, pushes one side edge of the Bung out.

The gas then slowly pushes the Electrolytic Paste out. (It oozes out)

So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates at a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

The paste can also dry up inside, and show no visual outward signs of failure.

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

Power unplugged to computer, Anti-Static Precautions observed, the motherboard should be removed for visual inspection of the capacitors.
It may require using a magnifying glass, and a good light.

FOR VITAMASTER MODEL LRC-83 CAN IT BE LUBRICATED WITH SPRAY TECHNIQUE OR DO BEARINGS NEED GREASE WITH DISASSEMBLY REQD.


bearings really need grease , grease lasts a lot longer with less friction . lubrication spray tends to break down faster and collects dust and debris . but since its a indoor bike and if you do not want to disassemble , you can use a good lube which would work fine . just make sure to reapply on a regular basis . here is a good link to show you what to look for .

When i turn on my computer the screen stays black as if it's off however, the computer is working fine. Sometime it flashes on but the goes back to black.


I suggest that your computer isn't working fine, it just appears to be.

But to know for certain you need to first diagnose whether the problem is the computer, or the monitor, or monitor cable.
Do you have another monitor and monitor cable available to use for a test?

If you have a VGA monitor, (Also known as CRT. Looks like a small TV), most likely the monitor cable does not disconnect.
For this test you would need another VGA monitor with cable.

If you have a flat screen LCD monitor, most of the time the monitor cable is changeable.
You can first use a Known to be good monitor cable, then if this doesn't work, use a Known to be good LCD monitor along with the good cable.

Still no progress?

Then the problem is the computer.
Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.
One of the leading causes of computer failure.

Also from the symptom stated it matches.

With a Power Supply that has a weak voltage power rail, (Or more than one), you will have enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL of the LED lights on at once use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

This is why the computer may appear to be working fine, but in reality isn't.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail will run the Processor for a very short time, then not have the power to keep the Processor on.

How?
Power Supply's used in todays desktop computers are SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply.

There are Electrolytic Capacitors used as Filters in the Power Supply.
They filter the incoming AC electricity, and the outgoing DC electricity to the computer components.

[ Electrolytic Capacitors are in the Input Stage, and Output Stage of a typical SMPS.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATX_power_supply_interior-1000px_transparent.png

You can click on the photo to enlarge.
B shows Electrolytic Capacitors in the Input Stage of this typical SMPS. { Blue and 2 of them}
E shows more Electrolytic Capacitors used in the Output Stage ]

Electrolytic Capacitors can break down. They can operate in a weak stage as they are breaking down, for a small time period. Eventually they break down all the way, and fail.

This is how a Power Supply can work sometimes, then eventually one day it does not.

To explain Electrolytic capacitor break down, and failure:

Typical construction of an Electrolytic Capacitor;

Basic,
Three strips are rolled up tightly together, and inserted into a small aluminum 'can' case.
There is a rubber seal on the bottom of the case, and a seal on top of the case that can break open in the middle.

The three strips are;
1) A Conducting Strip
Thin metal foil usually made of aluminum. This is the Positive strip.

2) A Non-Conducting strip also made of thin metal foil, but has a non-conducting medium applied to it.

3) A paper-like strip that is soaked with Electrolytic Paste.

The Electrolytic paste soaked strip is put in the middle the Conducting strip, and the Non-Conducting strip, and all three strips are rolled up tightly.

At the bottom of the aluminum 'can' case is a synthetic rubber, flat disk shaped seal.
This is called the Bung.

There is a lead, ('Wire') going through the Bung to the Conducting strip. This is the Positive lead.
There is one more lead going through the Bing to the Non-Conducting strip. This is the Negative lead.

At the top of the 'can' case is a flat disk shaped, aluminum metal seal. This seal has an X, or Y shape etched part way into it.

As an Electrolytic Capacitor fails the Electrolytic Paste develops a gas.
Hydrogen gas.
The gas expands inside the aluminum 'can' case, and with enough pressure developed, the seal on top, and/or bottom are compromised.

The X or K shape that is etched partway into the metal disk on top, breaks open, and/or the synthetic rubber disk shape on bottom has one edge pushed out of the 'can' case.

This allows the gas to push Electrolytic Paste out of the 'can' case.
So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates in a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

Apologizes for the 'Windy' dissertation, but I thought it would be better to know what is going on, than receive a "Replace the Power Supply"

With No processor operating you essentially have No computer.
No computer operating = No Signal to the monitor.
(No video signal)


Need guidance in replacing the Power Supply, or suggestions for a Power Supply so you can compare, post in a Comment. (Believe upper right of your page)

I'd like you to check some components on the motherboard.
Specifically, Electrolytic Capacitors.

More specifically, the one's used in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

This is a leading cause of a computer booting up, then shutting down, then restarting again.

eMachines are a budget computer. The low cost, is due to low quality hardware components inside the computer..
Electrolytic capacitors on the motherboard, being some of the above stated components.

1) Electrolytic Capacitors slowly build a charge up, then release the charge all at once.
Akin to a swimming pool slowly being filled up by a garden hose, then one wall of the pool is taken down all at once.

The Electrolytic capacitors used on the motherboard, are aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors, and are Radial in design.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolytic_capacitor

Viewing the second photo down, at the top right of the page, the bottom Electrolytic Capacitor is of the radial design.
Both leads come out of the bottom.

Essentially, an aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor is a small aluminum 'can', with three strips of thin foil rolled up together, inside.

A) One strip is metal, and is the Conducting strip.

B) One strip is also metal, but has a non-conducting medium applied to it.

C) The last strip is composed of a paper-like material, and is soaked with Electrolytic Paste.

The paper strip is placed between the two metal strips, and all three strips are rolled up tightly, then inserted into the 'can'.

(Of the two leads that protrude from the bottom of the capacitor, one is a Positive lead, the other is a Negative lead.
The Positive lead is connected to the Conducting strip.
The Negative lead is connected to the Non-Conducting strip)

At the bottom of the 'can' case is a seal. This seal is composed of a synthetic rubber-like material, and is a flat disk shape.

At the top of the 'can' case is another seal. It is a thin, flat, disk of metal.
The center of this disk shape has an X, or K, etched partially into the disk.

Electrolytic Capacitors break down over time.
The design manufacturer of a product that uses this type of capacitor, is aware of this, and plans accordingly.

The capacitor used is 50 percent better than is required.
This way as the capacitor breaks down, it weakens to a state that is still usable.

Low quality Electrolytic Capacitors have inferior Electrolytic paste.
As the paste breaks down a gas is formed. (Hydrogen gas)

The gas expands inside the can's case, and slowly pushes the Electrolytic paste out.
(Oozes out)

When the capacitor is starting to break down, the outside can case bulges.

As the capacitor breaks down further, the paste is pushed out of the bottom seal, (Rubber like disk has one side pushed out of the bottom), and/or breaks the etched design on top open, and paste pushes out.

So much paste loss, and the capacitor can operate in a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.
The paste can also dry up inside, and will show no outward visual signs of failure.

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH (Not 'shouting') the metal frame of the open computer case, BEFORE you reach inside, to relieve your body of static electricity.

[Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer unplugged from power you are safe.
TOUCH the metal frame, and your computer is safe.
Work on a table.
Do Not work on a bed, or directly on a carpet floor. These are high areas of static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, be Sure to touch the metal frame upon your return]

See if you can observe visual signs of capacitor failure.

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

A video showing the results of capacitor failure, in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN6_-8fYHo0

(Starts at 0:04)

Part of what the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor.

The Processor must have a steady, clean, supply of voltage, and the voltage must be within a certain range.
Too much, or too little voltage, and the Processor turns off.
(BIOS turns the Processor off)

Failing Electrolytic Capacitors in their weakened state will charge up, and release for a brief time period, but then will break down.

This is why the computer comes on, then shuts down.

Replacing the motherboard is the solution.

One more 'ailment' may apply.
It could be Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply, that are breaking down.

Test the Power supply voltages, or replace the Power Supply with a KNOWN to be good, working unit that is compatible, for a test.

(Compatible being the Power Supply is the correct size, and shape, plus also has enough Wattage, and the correct amount of power cables, plus the correct power cables)

To test you will need a multimeter, or a power supply tester.

A computer (Personal computer) Power supply puts out three main voltages.

A) 3.3 Volts. (Wires with Orange insulation)
B) 5 Volts (Wires with Red insulation)
C) 12 Volts (Wires with Yellow insulation)

If the 12 Volt power rail is 11 to 13 Volts, the power supply is okay.
Below 11 Volts requires replacing the Power Supply.
