Question about Fisher PC-36S90 36" TV

1 Answer

Picture "wobbled" and set turned off. Set will not turn on.

My set was made in 1998. The set had been on for about seven hours. I noticed that the picture was wobbling and then the unit turned off on it's own. I unpluged the set and let it cool down. I pluged it back in and it did not work. I checked the internal fuse with a multi-meter. It tested good. The circuit boards were very dusty. I cleaned them with a soft brush. I saw no obvious burns on the circuit boards.

This TV may turn back on, if you let it set for a few days or week unplugged.Then plug in and see if it will try to start. If that is the case you have one or two bad capacitors. Look for values in this range....160 volts to 250 volts at 1 mf to 4.7Mf. Theses will certainly go bad. And suspect any of those that may be 16volts to 35 volts at 100Mf.You said you have a good fuse, correct? Also check out any bad grounds under the flyback transformer, power resistors and ICs mounted on heatsinks.You may have another fuse, please check again for a second fuse. If the fuse is blown, you have a problem that may cost more than your TV is worth. Remember this TV may have a lot of miles on it! Thanks for asking!

Tv is on with no picture or sound, only 4 months old!!


Hello
The power supply regulator board to your set has the fault. If you try to open the set, or try to repair it by yourself, the warranty will void. The set must have warranty as it is new. Why do you spend for it? Just contact the nearest authorised service center for Sceptre. the components in this set will be very hard to get from open electronic spare part market, and will costly too.

When the product description says "7 on/off


Yes.
The way the programming mode works, you can sert it any way you want. At work, we use it to run the coffee pot. it is set for 5 "OFF" times (5PM, 6PM, 7PM...), so if someone turns on the pot after 5, it will turn off at the next hour (so the pot doesn't burn).
I use one of these at the house, and use it like a regular times.

Please tell me how to program my timer. How do I set the time and when it should come on and go off everyday


Smarthome has the T-1032 pdf manual
http://www.smarthome.com/manuals/4256.pdf

1) Test installation to see if your wiring technique is correct.
Open cover > set on-off switch to 'ON'
Press the tiny round reset button with paper clip
Screen displays 0:00, MO, MAN, OFF
Close cover
Push cover inward like a push-button (the cover is the manual override)
Lights should turn on
If lights don't turn on, then you need to rewire ... so re-post a re-wire question ... and then come back to this answer to program

2) Set Time and Day/ Correct time and day are needed for programs to work.
To start, notice on the screen - in the corners are little letters: MAN, MO, OFF. And to left of time is PM.
Set the Hour: Press hour button until correct hour shows, including PM or AM
Set minutes: Press MIN button until correct minutes show
Set the day. Press day key ... MO in corner changes ... for example TU is Tuesday, WE Wednesday, TU Thursday
Press one of the control buttons to finish operation

Programming overview
:
Timer allows 7 programs
Program 1, Program 2 etc
Each program has ON and OFF time
So you have to select Program 1
And then set DAY for Program 1, set ON time for Program 1, and then set OFF time for Program 1
Next you do the same for Program 2 , and then Program 3, 4 etc to 7
If you only want Program 1, then you do not need to set Programs 2 thru 7

Let's program
:
Press PGM button ... the timer screen show a P to right of time
The number 1 appears below P and indicates Program 1

Set days you want Program 1 to work: Press day button and you can see MO TU WE TH etc appear on screen.
If you want all week long, press day button until all 7 days appear in tiny print on bottom of screen
Now you have the Day set for Program 1
ON time for Program 1
Notice the screen shows ON ... this means you are going to set the ON time for Program 1
First, Set hour you want Program 1 to turn ON: press Hour button until correct AM PM time shows on screen
Last, set minutes to go along with hour: press MIN button until correct ON time minutes show
You have the day, hour and minute set for ON time

Set OFF time for Program 1: we are going to set a Day, hour and minute you want Program 1 to turn OFF
Press PGM button, and notice that OFF appears in top right corner of screen
Set the day you want timer to turn OFF for Program 1 by pressing DAY button >>> Tip set same days you set for ON times. So if you selected all seven days for ON time, then select all seven days for OFF time
Set the hour and minute you want Program 1 to turn OFF by using Hour and MIN buttons as before.

OK, the ON and OFF day, hour and minute are set for Program 1.
To continue to Program 2, press PGM button until a 2 appears on screen below the P
If you do not want to set more Programs, then you're finished
To finish, press any control button
Close the lid, cross your fingers, you did good
