Don't throw in the towell just yet...

The flashing green timer light after a lightning storm seems to be a very common problem with old Mistubishi rear projection TV's. A friend and I had the exact same problem.

Using this and other sites, I spent $36 bucks and a little time with a soldering iron to replace the capacitors on the DM board and got mine up and running (WS55859). I've never really worked on electronic circuit boards before, but the helpful advice at these sites got me up and running. Definitely check it out before you hire someone or replace your TV:

for the WS55859 model, which may be a little different.

Sorry to inform you but this is total disaster. The power supply and possibly the display boards have been compromised. TV;s and other sensitive equipment neeed a power surge protector boad. The cost to fix this is around 500-600 dollard. However if you have household insurance a claim can be made if you are covered for FUSION. Parts but not labor will be paid by your insurance company. Buy a surge protector board, $25 for the future protection of expensive electronics

MALIBU 200 WATT IRON CORE TRANSFORMER MODEL NO 8100-0200-01 LIGHTS WONT TURN OFF


Plug power pack into cheap wall timer, and that will operate lights until warranty is resolved with Malibu or product-seller.

Simple power outage, or nearby lightning strike, can cause surge that will knock out digital timers. And knock out analog series power packs too.
You probably need receipt for warranty claim.
This timer is not shown on Intermatic site, and not subject to Intermatic 5-year warranty, but certainly Malibu must have a warranty of unknown length, and a corresponding claim procedure.

Double-check your installation, and additional resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

Whole-house surge protection is hot item among folks these days since so many household items are now electronic, including appliances, washer-dryer, water heaters, timers, etc.
This will protect both 120Volt and 240Volt circuits, although it is unknown if your timer failed because of surge..

I have a Powershot A85 and am trying to shot silver jewelry and am having a problem getting a clear picture. I have lost my manual - can you tell me how do I get a clean clear picture to put on a website?...


Recommend a room with good ambient, non-direct, lighting. Also place the camera in "Portrait" mode (the dial selection with the lady's profile). Also turn off the flash by pressing the lightning bolt button repeatedly until you get the icon with the slash through the lightning. Next put it in close-up macro mode by pressing the little flower button. Next use the timer to take the shot, by pressing Func Set, then scrolling down to the mode selection, and then scrolling right to select the 2 second option.

The camera is now set for such a closeup. Recommend using a tripod to keep the camera extra steady during the shot. If no tripod is available, recommend bracing the camera against another object, such as a chair to help keep it steady. Aim and zoom at the piece of jewelry, push the shutter halfway down to focus on the jewelry (should see a green box). Once you get the green box indicating focus, press the shutter all the way down to start the timer. Hold the camera extra steady until about a second after the shot.

Good Luck!

Killed by lightning, have power, no picture...


The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.

Won't take picture


If the lightning bolt continues flashing and never stops there is a failure in the flash sub-system. Try selecting the no-flash setting, if the camera fires normally at this point then your problem is definitely in the flash system. It is hard to say what the failure is beyond that. The problem is the camera will not take the picture until the flash is charged and ready to fire - the flashing lightning bolt indicates that it is charging the flash. The fact that it just keeps flashing indicates that the flash is never becoming ready. This repair could cost $68 to $125 plus parts to fix, although an evaluation would be necessary to identify the problem.
