SOURCE: Sceptre power supply short circuit

I have the same problem. TV was JUST out of warranty. Sceptre part number is X37SV-Naga and the cost - $285.00 plus $20 shipping. Non-refundable, no returnable.

The TV is of course going to de-solder the board within a year again, so either a good heat sing on both thermistors is in order OR a law suit against Sceptre is in order for putting us a risk of fire.

SOURCE: Samsung HTDS610 Home Theater System power wont stay on!

I have the same problem.
I did my research and this is the solution:

Your HT system is overheated and the fan is not working. Just replace the fan and you will be good to go.

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

SOURCE: the lights and fan didn't

There may be a reset, but it may be due to a power surge burning out the controller board.

I have an aftermarket alarm system that has drained my battery


Dear Mary. All car alarm systems drain the battery after one week of the car not being used. Also, car batteries are not always fully charged on short trips because to start the engine on each short trip it drains a tremendous amount of power and a short trips do not recharge it fully. Have the car battery checked because the alarm is always on and on standby once installed, they usually have a small back-up battery in the alarm in case of car wires to the alarm have been cut, but that battery is always kept charged by the car battery, so, that is only causing a fraction of car battery discharge. However, to stop it from draining the battery you have to disconnect the alarm, and that is not a good idea. No car alarm that I have known have caused any car battery discharge, but of course if the car is not being used, or it is driven for short periods you are likely to experience a drained battery. Some batteries last more than 5 years not stop while cheaper ones have a lesser life expectancy, but again that depends on a lot of factors, heat from the engine, not enough charge because the alternator has a burnt diode, interior lights left on, too much cranking of the engine to start it and not enough miles done to recharge the battery. Try to get the battery checked and if you do not do any driving for a week, there are a number of solar powered battery charging panels that trickle charge it on sunny days but in winter I suggest you buy a charger that you can connect to the battery to keep it charged. Once charged the charger automatically cuts off and stays on stand-by until the car alarm has discharged it a bit, then the charger sensed the voltage drop and recharges it again, repeating the cycles until you need the car to go out. These small car battery maintenance chargers are inconvenient if you're not using the car too often. Some car alarm with go off when the car battery is disconnected. It's part of the protection the alarm offer. They may not be disconnected from the car battery unless you have a key that shuts off the alarm. But remember, the key shuts off the alarm but it doesn't mean it has disconnected the power from the battery. Check the pilot light status. If it flashes after the alarm key has been turned to off, it means the power is always there. Other alarms remain silent when the car battery has been disconnected from the clamps. If you garage the car at night, you can have a switch installed in the car that switches on the power to the car alarm or you can have the switch connected to a special relay activated Kill Switch that disconnects the battery altogether, but if your car alarm starts to squeal, then you don't need this switch. so try it first, disconnect the car battery and see if the alarm goes off. If not, then the Kill Switch is an option. If it goes off, then there is nothing you can do but to try and have the car battery checked and if you're not driving much or drive short trips, either a solar charger or a Mains powered auto charger can be used to keep the battery trickle charged. But before I go, you say you got an after market car alarm. Looks like it has been wrongly wired, who know. Have it checked by whoever installed it. Good luck.

Toshiba Model 51H84. Power breaker tripped during a storm. Breaker reset, and TV will not power on. Is there a fuse? Is there a reset button of some sort? How should I proceed? Thanks.


Hi,

Your TV has a fuse on power circuit board ( that is a standard part).You need to resemble your tv to get the fuse ( make sure to disconnect all power and antenna before doing this service). Usually any tvs use a clear glass cover on fuse ( you can see a small conductor inside the glass). Replace the fuse if the small conductor gets broken. If after the fuse replacement, you got no joy on tv, the receiver part could be get problem also ( due to storm attack) and need to repair / replacement.

I hope the storm only attack your TV fuse.

Good luck

Had the alternator replaced 2 days ago and during the night the alarm goes off lights flashing honking use the key fob to turn it off and takes a while for inside light to go out stays quiet for a while...


Hello, sounds like you need a new battery. As the battery goes flat the alarm senses it and sets off the warning system. Try changing the battery first and test it during the day. Also check to see if there is anything draining the power. You may also be able to adjust the alarm settings manually. Failing that, the alarm may need replacing. I hope I have helped.

2003 Gr. Cherokee Tire PMS overactive with smaller sidewall tires


Hello partner. The difference in air pressure variations from a 16',17' or 20" tires is a non-factor. Any size tire will go up about 1psi per 10 degrees ambient temperature. The recommended pressure for an 03 Grand Cherokee is 33psi. So if it's a rainy 55 degrees in the great northwest when you set your pressures the temperature on your trip to Death Valley would have to climb to about 175 degrees. On a different note maybe your alarm just isn't calibrated correctly.
