The contactors on each unit were stuck closed. I shut off power to the units for about 2 hours. I went back out and checked and the contactors had released. I re-powered and they started up. Great solution, but didn't really do anything.

Polaroid TLA-01511C stopped working after electrical storm. Will try to change fuse, if I can get to it. How do I access the fuse? NOT equipped mentally or with tools to do more.


Contact any service technician. The fuse can be located at itw main power regulator board inside. If the power supply regulator board is found faulty, it will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

lightning can do extensive damage to electronics equipment especially flat panel TV's. I would really recommend a professional diagnosis instead of board swapping. You could have several boards that are damaged!

Our aviom system does not show a signal coming from the sound board into the aviom system. We did have a few lightning storms during last week, and now the system is down. Is there any way of trouble...


The probllem MAY be with the driver in the sound board. I would use one of your Aviom units right at the sound board interface and see if short direct connect works. I assume you power the A16D from the same receptacle as your sound board... IF NOT you are asking for damage due to ground bounce in your house wiring. You need a separate power run between your mixer an all other interconnected devices. The coupling from nearby lightning strikes could create enough electromagnetics to exceed the common mode capability of the devices. The drive from the interface at the sound board would be lower impedance and could easily be the most vulnerablle to transients as the protection is less since the drivers are assumed to be driving. If the power was off during the storms, then the drivers are left unprotected. Again, the way to troubleshoot this is to FIRST verify that the interface in the board is operational before blaming the distribution box.

My mr coffee Iced tea maker has been working great for a year. Tonight it tripped a ground fault breaker, and only started a tea cycle. I reset the breaker and the machine squirted once then started to...


we had one like this and we suspect a power surge damaged it. it worked fine one night, but we had a lightning storm that night and we think lightning hit out power pole and fried several of our appliances. the tea maker would come on but like you described it seems to forget what its doing. consider the possibility that a power surge got it (doesn't have to be lightning, several things can cause a surge)

Replace the deflection board. Sounds like the vertical deflection was knocked out thats why you still have sound. You can get replacement deflection boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

You may have had a surge during the storm. Check main control board in console for damage.

Central air does not kick in.


It sounds like you have a bad capacitor to the compressor. The humming noise is the compressor not starting up but is trying. It is either the capacitor or the compressor form your description. If you had a lightning storm or power surge about the time this happened it is most likely a bad capacitor. You can have the capacitor tested to see. Disconnect power before working on unit!
