Belt might be broken - can be a pain to fix as the belts can be quite tight. Not a complex job though, try it out and see!

If I'm not mistaken, your voltage is only half of what it should be. Check your main power supply.

I have an Optoma DS303 projector. It stopped working. We replaced the lamp and it worked for about 3 hours and then when we tried to turn it on again, it won't fire up. Sometimes if I hold down the...


Check the voltage at the lamp input from the ballast after connecting projector to mains supply. (Warning: Do not switch on the projector while checking the voltage. It will damage your multimeter) The lamp connection shall be removed. If the voltage is around 60 to 80 volts AC, then your ballast is OK. Check for fragments inside the lamp.

No power


Proper Voltage from the House

Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.

If your dryer's door switch is defective, it will not allow your dryer to start. Test your dryer's door switch. If it is defective, replace it.

check the thermal fuse in the back of the machine,, remove the back you'll see it

Virea tv has just stopped working. Whilst watching it has switched itself off and there is no standby light or anything. All power cords and supplies are fine but it won't switch back on.


Good day!Follow this D.I.Y procedures to find the exact problem of your TV.
  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.
  2. After that,find the power supply board.
  3. If you already found the power supply,plug-in your TV and power it ON.Check the input voltage of it,using multimeter (AC range).If the power supply have no input voltage the problem could be the power cord.Replace it.
  4. If the power supply have the input voltage,try to test the output voltage if have 5vdc for the system and logic supply,12vdc for the sounds and 24vdc for the back-light inverter.Use your multimeter tester (DC range) to test that.
  5. If the power supply have a voltage outputs such as 5vdc,12vdc and 24vdc and the problem is still there.The problem could be the main board.Replace it with the same type and model # because the main board is no very difficult to fix and its very sensitive.
  6. If the power supply have no output voltage or the voltage is too low,just ignore the step # 5 because the problem is not on the main board,its on the power supply board.
Check the following to fix the power supply board:
  • Fuse: Check the fuse if it is busted or blown.
  • Power transistor (regulator): Check the regulator if it is shorted or leak.
  • Resistor: Check the resistors specially the one that have a low resistance that near the power regulator.
  • Capacitor: Also check the capacitors if it is leak or bulging top.
NOTE: If you found any defective parts or components that mention above replace it with the same value,type and ratings.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

Check starter relays. Should be under the hood on the d/s fender well. You will need a helper. if its not working and you don't know how to check the wiring to it get back to me

Model 27LCDB03B-simply appears to be "dead" won't power up-not the fuse


Hello Chris, Hi, your TV's power supply section is not functioning properly. If the fuse is in good shape, then the auxiliary power section of the power supply is not functioning, this section powers the switching oscillator and IC that sends the pulse to the switching element like power transistors to create a main secondary voltage. the main secondary voltage is the circuit that produces all voltage needed source by the TV. what you can do if you are up to it.
A. Visualize any bulging capacitors, replace them. B. Measure the voltage across the following section in particular order so we can find the faulty parts.
  1. the AC input on the Power supply board. (none means open switch or power cable)
  2. the AC after the line filter circuit. (none means open line filter)
  3. the DC on the filter capacitor. (none means problem on the rectifier)
  4. then the AC on the switching element or input on the main transformer. (most likely you won't have any voltage reading hear.)if you do have continue.... (none means you scratch your head, this is the hardest part) check all low value resistors, high wattage resistors open or shorted diodes.
  5. the dc on the secondary filter capacitors.
If not have this checked by a technician, its to complicated for you.

Robinar Cooltech 342000 - on start up stops on the "Initalizing System" screen. Is there a reset procedure available?


You can try the following : 1# Check main 15 amp circuit breaker (located on back of the machine), reset the circuit breaker. If breaker tripped again after reset, the circuit breaker need to be replace.
2# Verify line voltage is present at input of main power switch & output at switch turn ON. If line voltage is not present at power switch input, check connections between power switch and AC plug. If line voltage is present at power switch input, but not at output with power switch turned ON, replace power switch.
3# If all proceeding steps tested OK & problem still exist, you may nee to replace The main control module.
Hope this will help you, if so please vote for it.

I have a Kenmore 80 series dryer that will not start. What do I check first?


Check the twin breakers in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If nothing, check for power at the dryer socket. Measure the voltage across the two slanted slots which should read ~230 volts AC. If zero or near to it, one of the two breakers in the panel is bad, or a wire is open from either breaker to the dryer socket. Also, check the voltage from either slot to the center round hole--it should read ~115 volts AC, If nothing, try the other slot to the round hole. If still nothing, then the neutral wire is not making contact at one end or the other. If you read ~230 volts, then the problem is within the dryer. The first thing to check is the door switch, which if bad, will not allow the machine to start. Anything further will require a wiring diagram plus a voltmeter to trace the problem.

Splendide 2100 washer/dryer now fails to dry -


Remove the top - two screws in the back then slide forward
In the front right top you will see the air box and the terminals for the heater coil along with other wires and sensors. Start the washer on a dry cycle and check the voltage to the heater terminals. You will be looking for 120 AC. If voltage there but no heat the heating element is bad. If no voltage there follow the wires to the overheat switches and check the voltage on the other side of these switches (round devices with two terminals on top). If there is voltage there then the switch has tripped. Unplug the machine. Look for a spot of paint on this switch, scratch it away and you will see a small hole. Insert a strightened paper clip into this hole and push to reset the switch. Re-power and test the results.
No power to these switches probably means a bad circuit board $$$.

Whirlpool Duet dryer does not run after power surge/overvoltage


Swb, unplug the dryer, remove the top by removing the 3 screws in back. Slide it off toward the back. On the left will be the main board. Remove the metal cover on the board. On the board you will see P1-5 black wire (L1 line in voltage. You will also see P1-2 white wire (nuetral). With a voltage meter see if you have 120V from that black to white. If you do, you have power going in, nothing coming out, replace the board. Now Im going on that fact that you have no display lights, the dryer is completely non responsive. Catriver
