This may not be an adequate answer, but if it's old as you say, a few thoughts: It might be a Vacuum Tube type. The some of the tubes may have failed. A tube tester would reveal. Some of the capacitors may have failed. They depreciate with heat and age, A schematic (hard to find, but not impossible) and circuit knowledge would be necessary. Similarly resistors may have overheated and burned or shorted with the other failures (called co-lateral or consequential damages) The clicking you refer to, likely was the building up of static charge around the viewing tube. If any of the above failures occurred, it's likely that static voltage charge could not happen, therefore not the sounds you are familiar with. A TV repairman, can be found, not in the phone book or internet, because we've moved the universe into a "dispose-of old , and cheaper to buy new" environment. If the TV is valuable to you, sentimental value, what-ever, People may still do repairs, but you're going to have to ask around a lot.. maybe ask seniors at a church or two or three if they know of anyone who still does or knows how or know someone who does know. Well, there you have it. Best regards --- GooseBay_Camper
P.S. some churches have old Vacuum-tubed Hammond Electronic organs, the technician they use to service this equipment, may have usefull skills, or Musicians that use vacuum-tubed electronic amplifiers, or music stores that sell amplifiers may know of a technician they use that may have similar skills for Vacuum-tubes and old equipment. Again Good Luck. GB_C

I have a 1996 Jeep cherokee laredo & the transmission is making a winding sound. Plus it will barely go backwards and forwards


If it actually is the transmission ---you don't need to ask the question

It has to come out & apart

I would say it is too old to be doing that & too expensive to rebuild

My TV reads "Your receiver is currently off. Press select to watch TV" The receiver powers up fine, but none of my remotes nor the front control is able to move the receiver past this screen. Receiv


Please make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall, bypass any power strips. Make sure the remote has fresh batteries inside, press and release the SAT button and then press the select button. If the remote is not working, go to the receiver and try the select button and try to channel up and down. If you have any further DISH questions please e-mail me: michael.houston@dish.com

My tv is an old rca tv, i have a dish network remote, one of the kids locked out the tv and i dont know how to get it back on, it wont tell me a anything all i can do is change the tv with the remote,...


If I read your post correctly it sounds like, the remote no longer works the volume or power for the TV set. If this is correct follow the steps below for a Power Scan. If this is not the issue or the steps don't work feel free to contact me and we will sort this out!
Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

Try several functions Mute Volume and Power to make sure the remote works properly then press "SAT".

No picture


Instructions
  1. 1 Make sure the power cord is properly plugged into a wall outlet if your TV is not powering on.
  2. 2 Make sure the video and audio cables connecting your TV to external devices are secure if you are experiencing a fuzzy picture or no picture.
  3. 3 Reset the parental password if you forgot the password and are unable to view certain programs. To do this, click "Menu" on your remote control and use the arrow keys to select "Parental Controls." Enter the master password, which is "4357" to reset the password.
  4. 4 Turn off the caption vision option if you are seeing a large black box on your screen. To do this, click the "Menu" button and select "Setup." Select "Caption vision" and press the "Plus" button on your controller to set the option to "Off."
  5. 5 Check the "TV/Video" setting if you're not getting a picture on your screen. You may have inadvertently selected a video input that isn't active. Press the "TV/Video" button on your remote to cycle through video inputs.
  6. 6 Alter the brightness settings if you are experiencing a poor picture or no picture. To do this, press "Menu" and select "Video." Increase the brightness settings to see if the picture begins to appear.
  7. 7 Make sure the volume is not muted if you are experiencing a clear picture but no sound. Press the "Mute" button on the remote control to turn mute on and off.
  8. 8 Power cycle your Sony Wega if it's frozen or not responding to your remote control. Unplug the power cord and wait a few seconds. Plug the power cord back in.

Will switching to an sdhc memory card make any difference in 'shutter lag time'?


No. The shutter lag is due to the camera needing to focus and meter the light. The size of the memory card makes no difference to the speed. A faster memory card might let you take another picture quicker, but the difference would only be a small fraction of a second.

Shutter lag is simply a fact of life for most point&shoot cameras. You can reduce it somewhat by anticipating the action, pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter, then pressing the button the rest of the way when the action peaks.

I cannot adjust the volume on my Samsung 42" Plasma (PN42a400)


The fact that it turns on is good. Most likely the trouble is with a data line internal in the set. It may be the remote receiver IC or a push button on the set. A stuck button or switch can confuse or load communication between internal microprocessor circuits. Take a look or feel each of the push buttons do they feel the same when pushed ? Do they have a slight snap when pushed. The tac switches used in most cases are made like a small old clicker. If one feels soft and has no snap it's probably your trouble. If so tap lightly around but not on the button and it might free itself. You should just have Samsung replace whatever is the cause.

..sounds like it is clicking on and off..on and off..etc.


How old is this TV?
Sounds like it has high voltage failure.
(If you hold your hand on the screen when you try and turn it on, do you feel the static? )
Unless the set is over 10 years old, I would overhaul the high voltage circuit. Should cost under $200 at a shop.
