If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed PRINCETON monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My AT&T Model 1738 Digital Answering Machine has suddenly died. Do you have any thoughts on what might be wrong? How I might try to repair it? Many thanks for your help. Lachen


If its completely not powering up, unplug from ac power, check the cables, confirm power source is ok, then after about 10 minutes, replug the power cord and try to switch it on. if no led indicates at all, then you definitely have a power problem which could be from the source or internal.

Wireless connectivity suddenly lost


Have you tried power cycling the router and the modem? if not:

1. Turn off your modem and router by unplugging the power cord at the back of the devices.

2. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem to the router vice versa

3. After a minute, replug the power cord at the back of your modem then reconnect the ethernet cable at the back of the modem as well.

4. After a minute, replug the power cord and the ethernet cable at the back of your router.

5. Try to test the connection.

Warning: You can reset the router if you know that you can reconfigure it back to connect to the internet. If you don't know how to set the router back to connect to the internet, it would be ok to you to not to do step 6.

6. If it didn't work, You can reset the modem. Press the reset button at the back of your router while it's turned on, wait for 15 seconds after that, unplug the power cord at the back of the router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds after that, replug the power cord at the back of your router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds again then release the reset button after 15 seconds.

7. Reconfigure your router's settings to communicate to your modem. ( I don't know if you have cable internet connection, but if so, you can just clone the mac address of your modem to connect to the server, if you are using DSL if it's asking for a username and passowrd, just use the PPPoE type of configuration in your router)

8. If it failed, try to update the firmware of your router.

-Orange light on Power-up button stays lit. -No Video, just black screen. using AGP Video card TNT 32mb / Model CT5823 I've replaced the battery, double checked the cables, Power supply is good. Gatew


This is typical of a failed power supply. Look on the back of the power supply, there may be a red switch for input voltage. Unplug the power cord, flip that switch a few times and then plug the cable in and try again. If nothing changes, see if there's a small black button on the back of the power supply. If there is, unplug the power cable and press the button and hold it for 10-15 seconds. If an LED flashes or turns on, then plug the cable back in and try again. If this all fails, replace the power supply.

My reciever turns on for about 4 seconds then clicks off..


First, unplug and replug in the unit to reset everything. Second, check each cable for a short using a multitester. Each speaker cable should show a few ohms of resistance. If either open or a dead short...there's the problem. Not it? Get service.
