That's not a good sign. There are a number of parts in any TV that can put on quite a show when they fail. In many Zenith models, picture tube failure can cause this when high voltage gets back onto the circuit board. The glow you mentioned, if it was on the screen, is one symptom of such a failure.

Having this repaired is uneconomical. Labor alone may be $60 or more (I'm sure it will be...our shop charged that for a complex repair when I left the service business almost 10 years ago) and then you need parts. The repair bill could easily approach replacement cost, especially if it is the picture tube (and then it would cost more to repair than replace).

Use this as an excuse to treat yourself to a new TV. There's almost always a sale somewhere on small flat-screen models.

My maytag dryer gets way to hot. you cant even get your near heating element. you can even see it glowing. what could cause that.


Were you running the dryer without the lint screen in place? sound like you got something on heating element. Also the heating element does glow orange when it's on. If it keeps on getting too hot, there is a sensor that shuts off element after a certain temp. This may not be working right. Just what I came across working on my own in the past.

Furnace starts up blower starts..nothing ignites...then shuts down. repeats and doesnt stop...sanded igniter stick and nothing happend. flashes red once.


Do you see the actual ignitor glow? You must be saying that you sanded the sensor. The ignitor, after the little inducer fan comes on will begin to glow a bright orange until the burner lights. If the ignitor is broken, you will NOT see a glow, and you may smell a faint smell of gas.

Last night I heard a loud pop sound come from my computer and then it shut down. I tried to start up the computer but it didn't turn on. None of the fans turned on either so I concluded something is wrong...


Yes, and the power supply needs replacing.
4 screws hold the power supply to the cabinet or case these are usually located outside visible at the fan vents at the four corners.

Disk wont eject


It may have burnt out something in the power supply. Did you smell anything get hot or a pop from the unit.? It could also be that when it froze up that the slider assy that the laser assy rides along could be hung uo pn something like a dust or hair or dirt and made the unit draw excess current and shut down the power supply.. Try unplugging for overnight and replugging in and see if that clears up your fault. If it dosent you should seek a pro to assist you. Good Luck
