Hello,

If you can turn it back on with the s momentary key or power button:

When it shuts off, do you need to push the power button once or twice to get it back on? Also, does anything else about the picture or sound change as it warms up?

If once, then the controller is shutting the TV down either as a result of a (thermally induced) fault in the controller or it sensing some other problem. Monitoring the voltage on the relay coil (assuming these is one) could help determine what is happening. The controller thinks it is in charge.

If twice, then the power supply is shutting down as the controller still thinks it is on and you are resetting it. A couple of possibilities here would be low voltage or high voltage regulation error (excessive high voltage is sensed and causes shutdown to prevent dangerous X-ray emission). A partially dried up main filter capacitor could also cause a shutdown but there might be other symptoms like hum bars in the picture just before this happened. Clipping a good capacitor across the suspect (with power off!) would confirm or eliminate this possibility.

If it uses a pull-knob (or other hard on/off switch), then this may be like pulling the plug and would reset any abnormal condition.

I need to access my NetgearN150 from a command prompt as the GUI is not working can someone tell me if there are telnet or ssh commands available for this unit? The following lists the systems I am...


I think if you're using stock firmware you might be out of luck using ssh.
Still try telnet. (telnet IP address) if it was enabled before on the router (disabled by default.) If you have Win 7 you have to enable telnet in "Programs and Features/Turn Windows features on or off".
Find more info here.
Anyways - I would first try a 30-30-30 reset.
  1. Hold reset button for 30 sec.
  2. pull power whilst holding the reset button for another 30 sec.
  3. plug in power and keep the reset button holding for an additional 30 sec.
Let me know how that goes.

I have a mitsubishi wd-62525 the power light keeps blinking, and i can't get picture. i unpluge it than want 2min than it stop blinking and i can turn to tv on and get a picture than after 30-40mi


Good day!!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

The easiest way is to reset the TV. There are 3 possible resets for this TV. press and hold Action and Power on the TV until self check appears-- then unplug the TV wait for 30 sec. then plug back in. The reset should take care of any channel lock/ game guard settings

Also Volume down on unit and sleep on remote. Same process wait for self check then unplug for 30 sec. plug back in and turn on.

Last Volume down on the unit and RH-Split on the remote-- same process
hope this will be helpfull. Please rates me . Goodluck...................

Panasonic sets need to be reset to clear the v-chip settings. To do this, put it in standby mode, then press the POWER and ACTION buttons at the same time and then turn the power off. The set should reset to the factory defaults, and reset the v-chip

Wii shows up as "no signal" on T.V. It worked fine until I turned the wii off. All connections are fine.


Sounds to me like its a issue with the TV accidently being put on the wrong AV settings. Double check to make sure your on the right settings for instance av1 on your cables and av1 on the tv settings through the menu or remote control options. If that isnt the issue try it on another tv just to be sure it still isnt a tv component.

You can also double check to make sure nothing is lose or backwards getting one of the colors in the wrong position (we all have done it hehe).

Also try unplugging the wii, all together and unplug the power cord from the unit and from the wall leave it unplugged for 2min minimum and this will do a soft reset on the unit. Nintendo taught me that one hehe.
