The on/off switch could be dirty or broken, and will need to be replaced, if bad. You might be able to spray some electrical contact cleaner on it to get it working again, if it's just dirty or oxidized. Other than that, the unit could have another major problem that would require servicing. Oh, the power jack on the watchman could be sprung or bad, not allowing juice to the main board. Good luck and hope this helps.

How to fix my samsung galaxy mega 5.8 screen after replacing won't work


As with most modern electronics today, the failure of one component can cascade through other pieces of the system. Replacing the obvious failure often times reveals that more than one piece has been 'fckd'.

Typically, repair is not an economic choice.

SAFEGUARD YOUR HOME/BUSINESS WITH HONEYWELL'S WINTER WATCHMAN!


I recently discovered a great device, manufactured by Honeywell which is guaranteed to provide you with peace of mind whenever you are away from your home or business for more than a few hours. The Honeywell Winter Watchman UPC#: 085267870511, is a freeze warning alarm. Winter Watchman turns on a light alerting neighbors of a cold, low temperature condition. The model number is S483B1002 and the cost is in the $25.00 - $30.00 range.
This device plugs into a home outlet and then you plug a lamp into it. Make sure the lamp is on before you plug it into the Winter watchman. I use a lamp with a red globe and place it in the front window. Then I notify all of the helpful neighbors of my warning system so that can call me,or my designee, if they see the red light on. One of the features of the Winter Watchman is the fact that you can set the warning temperature, ten degrees below the setting on the thermostat would be a good setting in that the warning light would activate but your home wouldn't be in danger of an immediate freeze of the water pipes. OTHER modifications you might consider would be:
1. plug a spot light with a red bulb and a flasher unit into the Winter Watchman to get everyone's attention.
2. Use more that one Winter Watchman, perhaps on the other side of the house so that multiple neighbors can be alerted.

PICTURE WILL NOT APPEAR ON SCREEN


First, I would check to see if the AC adaptor is working. If you are on batteries instead, look for corrosion on the battery housing-usually on the springs

Tv reception on handheld Sony Watchman in Feb 2009


The old Watchmans are analog. If plugged into a digital cable/dish system it will scan in UHF and find the working channel than can be conrolled by your digital remote control. As far as taking it out on its own and working off the external antenna...those days will be over. Sony will have to manufacture digital Watchmans.
