SOURCE: "52" RCA Scenium DLP; No Picture and the buttons flash on and off

On the back of the TV, you'll find the Access door to your lamp. Unplug the TV from power, and remove the screw on the access panel. Inside you'll find 2 additional screws holding in the lamp housing assembly. Remove the screws, then the lamp assembly and visibly inpect it. You'll know if the lamp is defective, it will have obvious damage. If so replace with part # 260962, you can acquire this lamp for arround 100 dollars off ebay, or 262.00 direct from RCA.

I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

Tv is stuck on standby. The standby light (red) is steady and when I press the STANDBY button, nothing happens. no response or flashing light.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Mitsubishi hc3000 wont start

Starts inconsistently. When pressed the start button flames and the the power button needs to be turned off. It often takes several tries to get it started.


Richard, it could be a unresponsive control to reboot the unit unplug power cord from wall a couple of min's and plug back in. I would ask if you are gently holding start button in until you here a click then release the button. as the start button is depressed it is a time process to enable to processor to think... let us know.

Why wont my logitech boombox go into bluetooth search mode


I had the exact same problem. Boombox flashing blue, but not rapidly flashing blue. I did two things that seemed to fix it:

1: Reset the device by switching it on, then holding both volume up and volume down buttons at the same time for 10 seconds. The blue flashing light will briefly flash quicker to confirm.

2: Switch off the boom box

3: Switch on using the power button and (very important) immediately press and hold the Bluetooth button. The Bluetooth button needed pressing and holding almost instantaniously after the power button for it to work for me. I had to try several times to get it to work.

When you do this successfully, the Bluetooth light starts flashing rapidly and it enters search mode.

I nearly threw my speakers away, now it works and connects fine :)

It seems like im having some issue with my syncmaster2493 monitor. it will black out and once i wiggle the power cord it will come back on. any help will be apprecaited


Hello,


Your power supply board is failing and when you wiggle the cord it is turning it on and off until it finally starts up. There are parts called capacitors that start failing and it will cause intermittent power issues such as slow to show picture, flashing power button, wavy or flashing picture. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. Here is a picture of the power supply with the parts circled that need to be replaced.

I have a Wrist Blood Pressure monitor MF 81 that I would like to set the Date and time on it - I don't have a manual


Start with the unit turned off. Now hold the Power button on until it starts to blink zero (0) on the display. Wait until the display shows two zeros. Press and hold the Memory button until a two-digit number starts flashing at the bottom; this is the year setting. Press the Power button repeatedly until the year is correct. Now press the Memory button, and the month will start flashing at the top of the display. Press the Power button repeatedly until the month is correct, then press the Memory button. The day is now flashing. Set it with the Power button, then push Memory. The hour is now flashing, set it with the Power button (note that it is in 24-hour format, so 1 p.m. displays as 13). Press the Memory button to advance to the minutes, then use the Power button to set it. Finally, press the Memory button to turn the unit off. It is now ready for use.

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.


definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.

Flashing lights


Hi, had the same problem today. Solution: Start engine, blower on max, air direction to cabin, press rear wiper and rear wash buttons simulanteously for 5 seconds (all lights now on steady). Calibration test starts and lights flsh alternately. After first test, AC and recurculation lights flash for the cool down test. If all test pass then rear wiper light blinks slowly (press to exit self test). If AC and recurculation test fails then just 2 lights stay on. To repeat this part of the test press just AC and rear wash simulanteously ( may take several attempts and usually best when engine is cold). Again exit by pressing the rear wiper button once it is the only one flashing (slow blink).

This does work but it took me 15 minutes to finally switch them off!!!

Onkyo receiver


It sure dosent sound good!! The clicking sound you here are the protection relays to assist in protecting your speakers from blowing out. Your output devices are shorted it sounds like. Do not ever ever attemp to jump out those relays as it will burn out your speakers and possibly burn down your house!. Theres alot of current inthese amps for high power so if your not a tech and you think its worth it take the unit in to be looked at as there are no serviceable user parts inside these units . Sorry to have to tell ya this.. Good Luck
