It is definitely NOT cost-effective to repair it. Ask your local Geek Squad if they are willing - probably no - minimum $250. If you live in Philadelphia or another major metro, see if they have Mp3 repair servicemen - most places do not because the actual builders/info is in Korean, Japanese, etc, and b/c it is less expensive to replace than to repair.

Brake light failure

Bad circuit board tail light asseblise connector pin to board poor connection or burned push in light bulb sockets
On my '93 Chevy PU the new ones went bad within months I repaired the original ones by soldering all connector pins to the board cleaned the sockets chipping out melted plastic been working for five years now.
Care must be taken to keep solder from preventing wire connector install while using enough that plugging it in will not break these delicate unions.
Required pulling them several times to Finnish repair successfully.
Very disappointed in replacement parts.

On my z71 1996 model rear bake lights don't work but the third light works, could it be the brake switch ?

No, it is not the brake lamp switch. If the brake lamp switch was not working, the high mount (3rd) brake lamp would also not function.
Chevrolet trucks are notorious for bad tail lamp circuit boards.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the circuit boards. Check for power at the circuit board connector (with the brake pedal depressed) on each side. The brake/turn lamp circuit for the left side is the YELLOW wire. The brake/turn lamp circuit for the right side is the GREEN wire. If there is power at the connector, check the GROUND (BLACK wires) to make sure they are getting a good ground. If the power and ground circuits are OK at the connector, replace the circuit boards.

NOTE: DORMAN makes a kit that includes circuit boards for both sides it is DORMAN Part Number 70001

If there is no power on the YELLOW and GREEN wires at the circuit board connectors, the most likely cause would be a defective turn signal switch.

What is the adapter print

The adapter print is a small circuit board that provides the interface between the main processor board ('S' print) and the 'outside world'. The circuit board carries the connectors that poke through the front right of the machine's front panel, below the hand-wheel and has the serial connector to the PC, the multi-way connector to the embroidery unit and the foot controller socket. It would be unusual to have to replace this board, although I can imagine that damage could occur to the foot controller connector if the plug got knocked when inserted. Why do you ask ?

Hi = My LG5010 has developed vertical lines on the right hand side - if I move the screen backwards and forwards, the lines go away, but as soon the TV is switched off and on again, the lines come back. ...

The problem is most definately the LVDS cable that goes from the Main board to the Tcon board. The main board is the large one in the middle of the set and the t-con board is at the top- middle of the set. The connector is a long skinny plug with usually 20-25 pins. The connector can be unpluged (carefully) and cleaned with alcohol and a q-tip. There is NO VERTICAL Chip in any LCD or Plasma sets. Vertical circuits of that design have been gone since the inception of DLP, LCD and Plasma sets. The last analog set rolled off the line in 2005.

I have an acer aspire 7736z laptop and the power doesn't turn on, I tried to remove battery nd plugging power supply then hold power button for 30 seconds and still nothing works

Bottom Line the manual says if the light to not come on when cord is bluged in battery out get a new motherboard. You may also hear a slight ticking like a clock tick.. The Issue is the U58 chip on bottom side of motherboard burns out. sometimes takes out U63, U59 and U64 are same corresponding chip and can fail as well at worst case... Usually just is a 4812 chip you can get for a few cents...I heard how ever if you replace U58 and think U59 with the U63 chip a 4800IC chip the issue goes away... Trying to confirm... Until I confirm recomend either new mother board or correct U58 chips 4812..mosfet n channel..

Only get sound out of left ear plug, no sound to right ear plug in music player & radio


It is clear that the problem is from the right speaker of the phone.

To fix this,
  1. Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed,
  2. With a little force you can pry the battery compartment off. The volume and camera buttons will also come loose.
  3. The micro switches for the lock button and volume button are stuck to the side of the phone with double sided tape and can be carefully peeled away from the side of the phone leaving them still attached to the circuit board,
  4. Pull the circuit board towards you and you'll see a ribbon connector. This attach like a plug and socket. Just lever it up, away from the phone, to unplug. The circuit board will now be free.
  5. Again, each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug. The part that is attached to the circuit board at one end and attached to the phone housing at the other end with double sided tape. You need to carefully lever it up to release,
  6. You can then lift the circuit board away from the phone. Note that another ribbon connector will disconnect as you remove the circuit board. Now remove the screw circled in blue. Remove the antenna by prying along the dotted lines that is below. As you remove the antenna, another connector, circled needs to be levered up. Again this has a plug and socket type connector.
  7. Next, carefully peel the identification sticker off. Then push your screwdriver into the . This will release the keypad on the other side.
  8. The connector below connects in a slightly different way to previous stages. Just flick the black latch up, opposite to the side the ribbon enters its socket. The ribbon will now be loose. Now pull the front cover in the direction shown by the arrows to manipulate it so that the front cover separates from the black metal plate, indicated by the dotted line. Some force is required.
  9. The ribbon is the one you released in the last stage.
  10. Now slide something like a credit card all the way under the LCD screen to release it.
  11. remove the speaker and replace it with a new one,
  12. You should now have the LCD screen removed.
  13. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
take care

Mitsubishi WS-65809 - works, but screen won't power on.

yes that is correct 12 is normal...make sure all connectors are plugged in and in the correct places . conectors should be marked with letters that match the marking on the circuit board. Then look for heaters , in the glass bottom of the picture tubes(CRTs) there should be a little orange glow visable though the neck of the CRTs just above where the crt boards plugg onto the bottom. if the heaters are not glowing then check your wires to the crt boards again , you probly tugged one of them too hard during disassembly also check for cracked solder in the heater circuit......Oh yeah, you didn't mention -Does the TV get high voltage ??? thats important to having a picture......If you see the heaters glowing when the tv is on then look down into the lenses of the crts . If you see a brite color horizontal line closer to one side in each of them then you know most of the tv is working. If that line is curved then the tv probly detects that the convergence circuit is not working and it is blanking video.
OR -----
the error is 21 (see what number it ends the sequence with..) . Error 21 is X_Ray protect and you probly plugged one of the connectors into the diagnosic connector(near the high voltage transformer- normally nothing goes there) . If that is the case then somthing in the H.V. circuit could have been permanently damaged and now the tv has a new problem and wont work even if you put that connector in the right place.

Jack problem

This unsually indicates a bad connection with the jack. Not the headphone jack, but the connector on the player. My son had that issue so I ended up opening the unit up and resoldering the connector to the circuit board. Don't recommend doing that. You'll need to have a technician do that or if it's still under warranty take it in.

Replace IC Convergance chip in Panasonic PT-56HX41PF

Enter the tip of a pointed knife between the left side edges of the connector (circled in black in the attached pic) and gently tilt the knife away from the connector. Do the same on the right side. The connector should pop up.

Bose docking station chip broke off

I had the same problem that the ipod would onl play when I pulled it forward in the dock. Looking closely, I saw that some of the pins on the left hand side of the connector were bent forward, so I bent them back with a needle:


(ie. pushing the pins to the right, as shown here). This solved the problem for me.

If your connector is too far gone, I suggest looking to:

for a new connector for £3-4 or

for a whole PCB (Printed Circuit Board) replacement for £10-15.

Hope this helps...
