Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I got an Eyefi LX4700 from a friend who said that he could not get a picture, just a black screen. I plugged in the set and there is a red light that comes on in the bottom right corner of the cabinet. This turns blue when the remote is turned on, but there is no image or menu, just a black screen. I feel no heat from the back, and there is no sound, or audible signiture that would indicate that the set is warming up or trying to turn on. I have plugged in a DVD Player to see if I could get a movie to play, but again just the black screen. I have also used the buttons on the set itself to see if that sparks some life, but nothing. Is this set worth repairing or not?

SOURCE: Sansa E250 Black screen lighted wheel, wont do nothing else.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

SOURCE: Insignia NS-32LCD will not turn on.

I bought a 32' LCD TV made from insignia and it will not turn on. It was a 'open box item' now it is 15 months old- 3 months past warranty and it is completely finished. It's something to remember about Best Buy products. They are often pieces of junk. Isignia and Best Buy both have unavailable customer support, the local store transferred me from sales to Geek Squad- after Geek Squad said they don't do TV's I was transferred to a line I let ring for 2 minutes and the phone was never answered. I have been going to Best Buy instead of Circuit City but this has concerned me enough to not spend money at Best Buy anymore.

SOURCE: samsung tv turning off by itself

I have the same problem of the set turning off and on by itself. There is a circuit in Samsung TVs that would shut it down if a very loud noise occurs in the program being watched, but I have not noticed that correlation. My problem is solved by vacuuming the back panels of the set. They do not seem to have any significant dust on them, but I think the vacuum sucks somewhat inside of the TV and does some good with the fan that is supposed to be cooling the bulb and the mirror. It seems to work for months on end and when the problem recurrs, I vacuum again.

Power light blinks red, green and off. No picture


Is there another monitor input on the back of you computer? Sometimes this happens when your graphics card is not compatible so it is best to try another one. If you have another one plug it in there first. If you don't try the monitor on a friends computer. If it still does the same thing, it may be a manufacturer defect and may need repair.

POWER SUPPLY NEEDED FOR EYEFI LX 4700 TV


Hi.About your EYEFI power supply. Did you check the blue electrolytic capacitors on the P.S. board? I have a power supply board here for the same tv. There are 6 of the 35 volt /2200uf capacitors. They all look like they have been a little overheated on the top of them.If you look at the top of them real close and compare it to a good one somewhere else on the board you might see a difference in thier appearance. The top of the canister should be extremely flat and the blue wrap around it should not be stretched.On mine it is slightly noticable that these 6 capacitors ar beveled and the blue wrap is stretched some and I think if I replace them it will work.I have done this kind of work for many years then got out of it.I'm getting back into it because I like doing flatscreens. It would be alot cheaper for you this way. I haven't located a parts place yet to order them. They have a white silicone around them and maybe thats because they get really hot. I don't know a flatscreen that likes too much heat or too much moisture for that matter. There is a place that has these power supplies for sale but he is out of themright now and personally if it's more then 50 bucks it's a rip His are 49.99 w/free ship.Don't let anyone tell you that because EYEFI went out of business that you can't find these There is a guy on ebay selling them for 139 bucks/frigin rip off. I told him good luck with that..lol. Anyway hope this helped. If you find one cheaper and in stock please let me know. Thanks and good luck. Lisagee:)

Black screen and red timer light is on


It may be the problem of the Dish connection or stablizer. Remove the stablizer and connect the Tv direct to switch board and re connect the dish connection. Then switch on the TV it will work.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.
