Hi,

If I may add to the postings of devocap and coolguy008 (and with their indulgence) in your other posting.

Often, HV would refer to high voltage cables. These are ordinary wires but with extremely thick insulation. Some later day versions uses highly conductive carbon inserts instead of wire to reduce electrical noise emissions. They are used where the voltages transmitted are considerably higher than normally used. Examples are:
1. Sparkplug wires
2. Power leads to neon light advertisements
3. wire from the flyback transformer to anode cap in picture tubes.

Possible sources of electrical noise (that uses HV cables)
a. 2 stroke engines such as those in some lawn mowers, chainsaws, old models of snowmobiles, outboard engines, dirt bikes;
b. neon signs such as those in cafes, clubs, hotels, public places.

Hope that this be of additional help/idea other than those posted by devocap and coolguy008.

Good luck and kind regards.

Won't start weak spark


Hi Karl
Faulty Magneto coil or points or condenser (capacitor) or HV Wire if it uses carbon instead of wire. (This is for radio suppression)
Carbon resistor inside spark plug? Use another Spark Plug.
Rule of thumb is 25 tho contact Gap - thickness of standard hacksaw blade.
Use cheap Neon light tester close to HV Silicon Insulation & compare brightness to e.g. car HV cable.

Repeatedly blows fuse to dash lights and tail lights. I have replaced the multifunction switch and the 20 pin plug to the mfs.


I chose an SE model but all models should be basically the same. If the fuse does not blow with the headlamp switch off, that could mean there is a short somewhere on the BLK/YEL wire. Check pin 9 for a short. The BLK/YEL wire feeds the instrument cluster, the remote keyless entry module, the marker lamps, the park lamp filaments, and the license lamp. Try removing all rear lamps to eliminate them as a source of the short. If you can disconnect the cluster and the remote keyless entry module, check them. If no short is found, turn on the park lamps and reconnect/reinstall items until you find what's wrong.

Westinghouse tv turns off with rmote but cannot be turned on unless button on tv itself is used


How old are the batteries in the remotes? The on/off signal from the remote is the same. There is some lattitude in the IR reciever module for what it accepts. Low battereis may be shifting the signal's frequency or light intensity enough for it to not be recognized.

If sunlight is failing on the sensor or the remote's IR emitter, that can cause interference. Other IR devices can also interfere with the IR signal such as a "Remote Extender" being used for something else.

It may sound odd, but if your remote was working one day and not the next- was the room rearranged? If so, look around for possible sources of interference blocking the beam from the remote, or shining or reflecting light onto the IR reciever module in the set.

If you can put a light source behind the screen and see an image, then your lamp has gone out. LCD's have an image on the screen but need the light source to show the picture because they do no emitt light themselves.

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

Low noise is heard when sub is on..very low brum.


Salutations valikan,

It sounds like you may have some basic interference either in your power, or other sources. I have something similar when my sub is not in use I pick up talk radio, it drove me in sane for months untill I figured it out.

There are a few things you can do to help eliminate interference would be to purchase a surge protector with a power "filter" or conditioner. Also check the cabling to your sub-woofer if there are any breaks or weak spots in the insulation this could be causing interference as well.

And as always if possible read through your owners manual to see if there are any adjustments that can be made on your sub-woofer it self.

Hope this helps.

What is an hv cable?


It's a 5 wire cable that transmits HD signals from your HD components to your HD TV... unlike the 3 wire ones you use to connect VCRs and DVD to TVs... they permit a faster signal speed and allow for a higher bandwidth ! HV may mean HI VOLTAGE witch can cause electro magnetic interference with your tv. When an ac current passes through a cord a magnetic field opens and closes along the cord and sometimes unwanted RF can leak in to your devices via this magnetic field.They are not too expensive..

Goodluck,
Don't forget to arte me as fixya..

No picture Just Sound


Hi
There are different possibilities in your case¸but what happened to me ...
The LCD Backligh is out , I mean the bulbs or neons of the screen BACKLIGH, you have to check either the lights itself or the driver circuit which supply the HV to operate it, usually its a separate small long PCB beside the TV main board .
You can try this trick , Keep all lights off in the room and bring a table lamp, preferred a white neon one and face it lighted on the top of the screen with the TV on , try watch a very dark but exact picture with the sound you are hearing. This is a way to be sure that it is LCD backlights problem when using an external light to illuminate the screen .
It worked for me ,Good luck

Have you tried using the remote antenna supplied with the Bose system? This connects to the "Remote antenna" socket on the rear of the media centre and is made up of 2 parts: a shielded section (black in colour) that runs past any sources of interference - mains or signal cables, other electronics products - and the unshielded antenna (clear plastic covered copper wire) that must be fully extended vertically to act as an aerial. Position this away from sources of interference and as close to the second room as possible (Bose do a longer version, free of charge in some countries....)
The remotes only have a range of up to 20metres - this will drop the more walls it passes through and the thicker the walls. Any interference can affect this - radio transmitting equipment (WiFi, video sender, but especially products transmitting on the same frequency - 27MHz or 40MHz, e.g wirless thermostats or alarm systems....) or products with poorly shielded transformers. Experiment with swtiching off other electical equipment (including lights if they have a transformer - e.g. halogen spot lamps). If you identify a source, can you move it away.....?
