Lights for 480v photo cell control, the blue one, come on and stay on, any suggestions, or reasons this would happen? Is longer than 5 minutes


Unknown if this is new installation, or old installation that went bad.
Old install, then check voltage is correct for rating plate, check that line power is not under-voltage, check that photo control receives enough light by shining 120Volt light bulb onto photo eye, replace photo eye
New install, check wiring. Photo cell has 3 wires, For example Black White and Red.
Black and White connect to power source, and Red goes to load.

White screen 8530


Have you tried a reset or a reboot? Try these steps:

1. Power off the cell phone by holding down the power button for at least 5 seconds. The screen should turn black. Now, let go of the button and press it again until the screen lights up again.

2. If the screen is still white while holding down the power button, open up the back of the cell phone and remove the battery. Wait for 30 seconds before putting the battery back in, to allow the software to reset itself. Put the battery back in and press the power button until the screen lights up again.

3. If you removed the battery and you still have a white screen, you may have a software issue. Go to a local cell phone repair company and have it replaced or fixed.

I have the same problem listed above. I bought a touch and glow photocell at Lowes to go along with a yard lamp with lights on three arms. It is wired exactly as directed. Black to black, power source...


You have 120volt photocell.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#photo-eye

Wiring sounds correct.
Lights are on all the time, even in daylight.
How is the power by-passing the photocell shut-off?
Disconnect ground wire to make sure there is not a ground fault causing circuit to complete on ground wire.
Otherwise the photocell might be bad.

Wireing diagram do not no were thay go three wires


K4221C photo cell page at Intermatic:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/photo%20controls/commercial%20%20industrial/stem%20%20swivel%20mount%20-%20thermal%20type.aspx

Photocell has black, white and red wires on photocell.
Black goes to Hot from breaker.
White goes to Neutral from breaker box
Red goes to Load (light)

Electricians don't guess, they test.
You should have one wire coming from breaker box, and another set of wires going to light.
Separate wires for testing.
Since you are outdoors, stand on dry boards and tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Turn power ON
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on hot wire. This wire should be black.
Hot wire connects to photocell black

Hot is identified.
Test Hot wire to all wires except bare ground.
Tester lights up on neutral. This wire should be white.
Neutral wire connects to photocell white

Now the other cable goes to Load. This cable has a black and white wire.
Connect photocell red to black Load wire
Connect white Load wire to Neutral, along with photocell white.

Ground wires are twisted together.

No Picture -- just a black screen on my vizio vx37L


Did you hear any pops before the screen went black?
You've tried completely discharging it? Disconnect everything off the TV, all cables and power.
Press and hold the power button on the TV for at least 20 seconds.
Let it sit, and in about an hour, plug just the power in (directly to the wall) and see if it comes on. There should be an indicator light, is it white or orange now? Was it a different color before?
Odds are it's a board, be it the main or a video, don't know for sure. If you can take the back of the TV off and see if there are any evident signs of damage, blown or swollen capacitors, burnt traces or resistors/diodes, etc.

Photo ink 58 do i put it on the right side and what other ink cartridge do i need to use


Normally, you keep the regular tri-color cartridge in the place it already was.. You should be taking the black cartridge OUT and putting the 58 Photo cartridge in...

FYI.. the 58 photo cartridge provides you with LIGHT magenta, LIGHT Cyan and a PHOTO Black -- which are supposed to give you truer tones and 'half-tones' for shades and nuances in color (like different grades of blue in the sky). The Photo black helps the photo not look "green" on black areas when there is a reflection on the photo... (with regular ink, when you get a reflection off of the shiny paper you often see a green-ish like color and it looks rather odd... the photo black stops that.)
