Good day, javiquez;
The cap C407S that you burnt in the TV is in the circuit that feeds the G-2 to the CRT's. So, it makes sense that your picture quality has suffered. Here is the information on the failed cap and other part I would recommend changeing:
1. C407S; part number 2201-000406; description; c-ceramic,disc; 270 pf, 10%, y5p, 2 kv (2000 volts).
2. D402; part number 0402-00586; description; APIH, 2 kv, 1 a (amp).
Hope this was helpful, good luck, big IRISH.

    Good Day, javiquez;

    It was just a part failure. The G-2 is the voltage that feeds, bias, the CRT's. This type of cap is known to fail because of the high voltage, 2,000 volts, it's used to keep voltage spikes down.

    Replacing these two parts should correct problem and there is nothing you can really do to prevent this from happening again, just good quality replacement parts.

    Good Luck, big IRISH.

Problem with Mitsubishi flat panel tv, solid lines on each side of screen and flickering and fluttering images on left side. Please help can't afford new tv.

On this kind of tvs, its kind dealing with a computer, i tear down some of them and fix some of them, some have two boards that control your image, you might have one of them coming bad, its risky to try to figure it out by yourself, cuz you can damage something else, but if you dont have choice open your tv with out power and be sure to be free of electrstatic energy touching any ground metal and check for any anormal condition inside your tv, like stains on your left card board and replace it if you can, connections are not easy to remove on some models, good luck :)

A Sony lcd tv with suddenly dark images

Look for loose contacts of RC jacks, cables. Since same problems are there with other input device, there could be board problems. Better to refer it to a qualified service technician.

I have a 2005 chevy malibu maxx v6. car runs great, no hesitation or stalling, however a intensly strong odor of gasoline suddenly began about 3 wks ago, and is gettin stronger by the day! it Can be...

No service engine light? A loose gas cap will set a light.
You may want to inspect your fuel filler neck and anything close. For a long while its not uncommon for a person to report the fuel odor issue and have it be where some low life cut a filler neck or puntured a tank to steal fuel. But if that were the case there would usually be a service engine or gas cap light as the systems now days monitor pressures so they can detect leaks in the Evap system.

When you mention a smell though under the hood, do you think the smell could be exhaust? I have seen those manifolds crack. or maybe just a leak from a gasket or exhaust donut.

Will Kinect work with existing games?

This is another area that has sparked a lot of confusion, mostly due to the fact that a Kinect Burnout Paradise video has been released, and so people began assuming that since Burnout Paradise was a previously released game, that other previously released games will be available for Kinect use. That is not the case, as Kudo Tsunoda, the Creative Director for Kinect has said, that existing games require a large rewrite of their code, which will not make it practical for them to release update packs to work with Kinect. But, definitely expect some sequels to games, as well as annual sports games to come out utilizing Kinect controls.

TV has picture Philips DPTV335 was working fine and suddenly picture went out. Still has sound but nothing on screen (volume bars, picture)

This is a projection TV. No picture can have a whole host of causes.
When the TV turns on, you can see background dimly but no picture.
Caused by the picture being muted. Perhaps the video signal is too fast - 1080i on a TV that does not support it might cause this.
Menu works but no image.
Definite picture muting. A bad video cable, no video from the device providing the picture. From the tuner, the signal circuit board needs repair.
No background, no image, no menu
This is a loss of high voltage to the picture tubes. If the picture cannot draw up and down or side to side, this will happen. Definite time for a repairman. Can be pricey if certain parts have blown out.
Most likely is a loss of vertical drive. (up and down drawing of the picture)

It emits a metallic burning odor.

The trouble began in 2003 when Consumer Reports magazine published a report claiming the expensive air cleaners don't clean air. The magazine later claimed its tests showed that Sharper Image's Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Purifier and four other units also release potentially unhealthy levels of ozone.

My GE refrigerator is leaking cold air at the wires coming out from the back of the refrigerator. The frame around this hole is cold. Is there a leak inside the refrigerator? What can I do to fix this...

refrigerant could leak inside the unit, it could smell bad if the compressor had a burnout
refrigerant carries oil troughout the system and back to the compressor
if the compressor had a burnout, the oil would turn acidic creating an odor if there is a leak

personally I would check what's inside, open a box of baking soda and see if this eliminates the odor

if your fridge quits cooling, you've got a leak
