I have written to dell about this faulty TV not powering up and find it unbeleivable that they cannot tell you what component has failed on the Power Supply.
It's all very well replacing them with new ones.

This means that Dell are responsible for allowing faulty TV Sets to be dumped into the Environment.

It also means that Dell are responsible for allowing people to remove the backs from these TV Sets and exposing themselves to dangerous voltages.

Why should their customers have to pay for phone calls.

I put in a complaint on their web site and got asked rediculous questions about Customer Numbers and Tag Numbers etc.

It took me nearly 2 months of writing and asking what was the problem with these TV Sets.

Here you have a lot of people with the same fault which proves conclusively that their is a common component failure and there are web sites like this where everyone is complaining about Dell.

That announcement by Dell (Above) is total rubbish.

Why doesn't Dell announce what is wrong with these TV Sets so that people like myself can repair the set.

If it is a Capacitor or a resistor, why doesn't Dell say "What Value it is and what it's circuit reference number is?

If it is an IC Why doesn't Dell say What IC has failed and where one can be obtained, instead of this Dump the TV Set into the Environment attitude.

If Dell doesn't know what's wrong with this TV Set by now, then they seriously want to stop dealing with the public and the Public want to refuse to have anything to do with them,

I have had this Power Supply Board out of this TV set for more than a year wanting to know what component has failed so i can replace it and get this TV Set working?

It is a very simple question?

After all this time of writing they admitted that the Dell TV26 is manufacrtured by Samsung.

I wrote to Samsung and they deny the TV Set is manufactured by them.

Either Samsung or Dell is lying to the Public and i want to know the Truth.
What exactly is wrong with this TV Set with regard to it's Power Supply so i can fix it myself?

I can confirm that Dell is the worst Company that i have ever come across in my life and have caused me nothing but grief and i have had enough of them.

I would be happy if they went into liquidation after the way they have treated me.

The Idiot that wrote that above failed to announce what it is that is wrong with this set and as a result in summary:

Dell doesn't care about creating waste into our Environment.

Dell doesn't care about putting it's customers through a communications nightmare and even making them pay for phone calls.

Dell blames another Company (Samsung)

Dell fails to announce to the Public what components have failed within the DELL TV 26 Power Supply.

Dell has the worst user friendly web site i have ever seen in my life.

Dell has no Email contacts to put questions to it's company about faulty Products such as this.

Dell doesn't care less if one or more of it's customers gets electrocuted by messing around with these TV Sets.

I pray that no one ever deals with this Company again because all this was pointed out to them in all my emails and i could not get a straight answer from them.

This TV Set belonged to my Father who passed away recently and Dell couldn't careless about that either.

Alternator current is not reaching the battery


be looking at fuseable links in the wiring and connectors also.. I just had this issue myself..mine was a bad connection on the alternator..which is unfortunately locaded low near the passenger front tire.. it always gets wet during rain or melting snow/ice conditions..my car is a 91 and its missing all the plastic splash guards under the front..I took the alternator off and got it tested ..it was fine.. my wiring harness has 4 connectors made into a loom that fits on the back of the unit..one of these was all rusted and I wire brushed it and coated it with waterproof grease.. it works just fine now..the fuseable links are wires made into the harness that will burn apart instead of the entire set burning up..and destroying the car..these links will feel wierd if the are bad..and will bend very easily when they are warm.. if one is burnt through it will wigghle easily also..

:I shorted out my kdc 128 head unit and i switched all the fuses but it still wont turn on. any ideas?


Firstly, the main wires from the KDC-128 you need to check are:

RED - this should be connected to the vehicle's +12v IGNITION wire.
YELLOW - this should be connected to the vehicle's =12v BATTERY wire.
EARTH - i) some tuners will only earth when the tuner itself, is screwed into the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket); ii) some tuners require the BLACK wire to be attached to the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket).

Secondly, if the above wires are connected correctly, then you should suspect the fuse on rear of the tuner has blown (even if it LOOKS ok). Replace and see what happens.

Thirdly, if all above are ok, then you have a short somewhere on the vehicle.

Circuit unit behind the ac controls


sounds like your blower motor has stopped working check for power going to the blower system if you have power the blower is probably bad the concern is the lack of a fuse blowing or a breaker not cycling you may have a harness problem sometimes a low grade short will heat up wires then melt them together causing a multisystem failure even though a fuse or breaker didn't blow check you harness

Polohunt1@aol.com my bionaire bch9221 120 volt heater does not produce heat anymore.....i'm thinking that maybe an element within the unit is burned out.


Mine was doing the same thing. Took it apart and found that the white wire which hooked up from the circuit board to the heating element had burnt which broke the connection...hence no heat....replaced burnt wire and resoldered to heating element...put it back together and voila I have heat once more....still doesn't solve why the wire fried though....

I tried to install a new head unit it. cut the harness and didnt like where it was goin. So i reconnected all the wheres back to the harness. now original unit does not work. when i was reconnecting the...


First lets start by disconnecting the battery. Then go through each wire you reconnected. I'm not sure what process you took to connect them. Taping, wire caps, etc.... Anyway make sure these wires are connected firmly then move on. If you got a spark I could see there being a blown fuse somewhere. From what I read you are saying there is not burnt fuses, but I'm not sure if that is what you meant to say. If this is the case you could have a bad wire. If the fuses are fine and make sure you thoroughly check them for any problems. Could be a very small imperfection causing the lost of connection. Next move onto to testing the wiring. Reconnect the battery if you have made sure all wires are safely connected and fuse is back in panel. Take the wire tester and find the ignition and constant wire. When the key is on both of these wires should be lit up. When you turn the car off, one of these wire should be off. This will indicate that you have proper electrical going to the unit. After getting through all that, check the ground wire. If this is bad you get not life from the unit. There is a lot here, but it could be a couple things causing this for you. Hope this helps and good luck!!

Our polaris sportsman 500 6x6 won't start


Polaris seems to have a problem with this issue. I had the same problem with my bike and was able to fix it . I found a bad resetable fuse link located under the front cover. It looks like a plastic case with wires at both ends. cut the case and check the condition of that part. I found it was badly rusted . I removed the part and wired in a 10 amp fuse with a holder. wrapped it up to protect it and the problem was gone. lights worked fine as well as the cluster. Ed.

Making a noise like something shorting or arching


Yes, the relays are on the main board. If the wash heater ohm tests okay (should measure around 12 ohms) then the problem is mot likely the main board.

Also, these units sometimes have an issue with the wiring in the door. If the serial number on the unit starts with 712 or lower, then this could be the cause. Black, tarry residue on the wiring harness inside the door would indicate that the unit is having these problems. If that is your case, call LG customer service at 800-243-0000 and have them refer to service bulletin # IDSW20070060.

Tail light problems


You have 2 choices. Order a new PC board provided you know it really is bad. I just checked mine and found that by jiggling the wires and securing them to the harness better the lights began working. Sometimes some electrical contact jelly on the underside of the piece where the harness hooks to the light can make them work. If that fails and the bulbs are good, look for a replacement in the wrecking yard (entire light assembly) or look on-line for a new plastic circuit board. I have done both and found the new circuit board wasn't too bad to put in but I had to re-wire that light to get the lights to work the way I wanted them too.

GE refrigerator not defrosting


To force this unit into a defrost mode, unplug the fridge and remove the cover from the main control broad and remove the main wire harness. (Three wires, Black, Blue and Brown I believe) Next take a a small 3in wire and bend it into a U shape to make a jumper.
e4c0a32.jpg

Insert the jumper into the main wire harness to jump the to outer wires together. (Black to Brown) It should be pretty easy to slip it in through the back with the rest of the wires. (Don't worry this test will not cause any harm to your fridge)
Now reapply the power to the fridge and check the defrost heater. As long as the defrost thermostat is below 15 degrees then the heater should start working. If the heater doesn't work then there is a problem with either the defrost thermostat or the heater. GE uses a glass tube heater with a coiled wire inside. This wire has a habit of breaking after a few years.

As far as the thermistors go, all the do is tell the board to cool. They can make the unit cool all the time but the board should still defrost the evaporator every 6-36 hours. If the unit starts defrosting then you have a bad board.

Hope this helps and let me know if you need any clarification. Good Luck!
