Most like the capacitors on the inverter board or power supply are going leaky.. if you look at the board you will notice that the caps are puffed out at the top. replacing them if difficult and if you don't have the skill to replace them have a good tech do it.. repairing the board is much cheaper that replacing them.
As the caps get worse the set will stop cumming on.

Our GE dishwasher has been working fine for years. Now it is tripping the braker? all wiring is good right to the dishwasher. We did smell burnt wires but it went away.?????


Your dishwasher may be damaged beyond repair. When I installed the dishwasher in my home I found that there is a surprising number of wires bundled under the dishwasher. If you are skilled in that field you can pull the dishwasher out and try to repair the damaged wiring under the machine. However once you've smelled burned wiring it means that there are potentially significant problems in there. You aren't smelling the burnt wires anymore because the damage is so great it's just tripping the breaker. If you continue to try and force the machine to work in this situation you may end up with a fire and further damage.

Please be careful.

The tv smells like a burning wire


Can you describe where the odor is coming from. Is it coming out from the side panels on the tv set itself, or perhaps the plug, on end of the main power wire. Check around the electrical outlet. Make sure nothing else is plugged into the same outlet. It sounds as if some of the electrical components on the circuit board are burnt or burning out. Tv may have experienced a power surge, etc. Check also if the power plug is heating up. Be careful and smell around top side vents on tv. Be sure and unplug the set before leaving it unattended if you cannot locate the source of the "burning wire smell."

Daytek television will not turn on.


There is a manual switch on the bottom of the TV. Flick it on and TV screen should come on. The power light will come with this switch off but the screen won't. It had me cursing for a while until I saw the little switch.

Smells like burnt wires


It is very possible it may have burnt wire or burnt capacitor. Remove unit, remove top cover and look inside to see if you see any burn marks or burnt wires. Also check fuse to see if it is good or not.

One of your capacitors n the video board burnt out. You will have to use a multi-tester or capacitor tester with service manual to determine which capacitor it was that burnt out.
