The top of screen frame has melted

The top of the plastic tv frame has melted in the middle in one spot. This must be an electrical component problem inside the tv. The TV is wall mounted, and is not exposed to any heat source. I am afraid to turn the tv on, in case of fire! Help!

Yes i would agree with you not turning it on, Fire is a risk here. I would isolate it from its power source altogether and have someone take a look at it at the earliest. I suspect one of the caps or several of them have overheated on the power board which is located near the top of the surround.

On my glasstop a hot pad melted on it how can i get it off without scratching it

Hi, Ms. Stubblefied. I am sorry to learn about the heating pad melting on your range top. You can use cooktop cleaner to try to remove what you can from the top of the range. Then, using an oven mitt to cover your hand, turn the burn on very low, and use a scraper to gently remove the melted pad. Be sure to use care as the burner will be on. You may not want to do this if the scraper is plastic, as that may melt to the range top. If you do not want to do this, then you may need service. Here is a link you can use if you need service:

When the computer comes on it starts fading out then it goes blank

Laptop? The Inverter is going bad. (Screen Inverter)

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.

Similar to the Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.
(Average Backlight is approximately half the thickness of a No.2 pencil, and 3 to 4 inches long.
There are many variations, however)

An Inverter is used to convert the electricity provided by the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

90 percent of the time the fault is a bad Inverter.

The Inverter is usually located behind the Display Bezel in the Display Assembly, and at the middle/bottom of the LCD screen.
It is a small circuit board.

Example of a typical Inverter,

[The Display Assembly consists of all the parts that make up the display.

A) LCD screen

B) Display Bezel (Thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the LCD screen)

C) Top Cover (Top plastic piece of laptop)

D) Screen frame (Metal frame that resembles a picture frame. Surrounds the LCD screen.
{The LCD screen is composed of layers. This frame keeps them in an aligned state)

E) Hinges

F) Hinge Brackets

These are a few of the Display Assembly hardware components.

What is the laptop manufacturer's name, and Model Number?
(On the bottom of the laptop is the Model Number. Sometimes referred to as Product Number. P/N)
If I knew this information I may be able to provide a link to a free Service Manual

Old Panasonic tv approx 10/12 y/o? -Model TX-28CK1L Serial no ND-0360158 Last night 50% of screen from top to middle "blacked out"--half picture still visable on bottom half. Very bright thin...

The main coupling capacitor feeding the frame scan coils has failed or the output stage on the frame stage has failed due to dry capacitors or dry joints.
Fault finding and components are not a problem and yes it is very repairable. Any technician that knows how television works can repair this standard frame output stage.
I hope you find a good technician.

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Nissan quest electrical problem

Professional repair short use a tone ringer,infrared sensor to locate the trouble spot.

The quick way to isolate short is to test one circuit at a time.

Check for hot spot on the wiring.

Check for melted plastic.

Quest has a track record of bad grounding wires between engine to frame and engine to transmission.

I would check on the these grounding cables.

Replace them with 14 G wires.

Add three more wires from the neg. battery terminal to frame,engine and body of the transmission,

Bosch SHX46A05UC/30 runs for 4 hours.

The circut board in the biege plastic case under the buttons on the right has what is called a cold solder. In other words the solder melts under operational use. Some are repairable and some are not.

1. UNPLUG DISHWASHER or turn off breaker and test for electricity.
2. Remove screws from door panel.
3. Take pic of position of wires going into plastic box.
4. Remove top section of plastic box with buttons exposing small circut board.
5. Open plastic box exposing large circut board and in the middle of it you will see a black spot where the solder has popped. Resolder and reassemble OR replace old circut board and then reassemble.

A new circut board is about $135
Usually electrical parts are not returnable

Need to disassemble Mitsubishi VS-6041 60 in Rear Projection

Wow, You are asking for a complete disasemmbly. If this is necessary, you have to remove any screws you can find that are connected to the front panel. Usually they are in the top of the set ( you'll find them after removing the mirror panel and mirror ). I wouldn't remove any tubes as the tube convergence would have to be all reset and that would require a cross hair generator. I do hope this has helped in some way, but all I can do is send you my best wishes as I certainaly don't suggest disassembly if there is any other way. Good luck
