    We took it apart and found the fuse. It seems as though it needs a 3.15 amp fuse with 250 volts. We can only find 3amps with 250 volts. We have been to ACE, Home Depot and Radio Shack. Any ideas?

The stabiliser would have fused out so replace the fuse alone then the unit will work

What could be wrong with my Samsung tv un46d6000sfxza

If I had a dime for every one of these type of questions I could retire without my pension. The problem with these sets today is that they no longer fall under the category of "durable goods" which include washers, dryers, water heaters, furnaces, etc. They now come under the electronics category. This means that you shouldn't really expect these devices to last much longer than their warranty period. The days of TV sets lasting 10-15 years are over. Three to five is the new norm. They are designed with obsolescence in mind. The manufacturers do not build any tolerances into the electronics so any small power surge or glitch can cause a cascading failure through the device, taking out multiple board with it. You replace one, it works a few minutes, and then it gets blown out by another one that was bad as well. By the time you get through replacing all the boards, if you are lucky enough to get it working again, you find that for a buck or two more you could have bought a new one that was larger and with more features. This is the manufacturer's plan. If TVs lasted 10 years, then they can't keep selling them at the rate they can build them now. If you want one of these to live a little longer than normal, invest the hundred bucks or so into an UPS to attach to it for power and surge suppression. Dollar store surge protectors won't do much to save these touchy devices.

My electricity was disrupted due to an auto accident knocking out a power pole. When it came back on line a few hours later, the refrigerator cooling or freezing does not work. All panel lights, fan

Hello Charles;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In your owners manual, it is recommended that you have a surge protector on your unit. In fact, any appliance including your television, home computer requires a surge protector.

At your local Home Depot, Ect. you can purchase individual wall socket surge protectors for about $20.00. They are a well worth investment.

Your board reset button is not going to work. The power shut down and restarting surge blew out both your control board and control board capacitor.

As a field service refrigeration technician, I carried no less than 3 LG control boards in my truck. 65% of my service calls were LG & Samsung. The fewest service calls I had were Amanda & Kitchen Aid, follower by GE and Kenmore.

Anyway, You need to replace both the control board (Part Number LMX25981ST - $122.00) and your control board capacitor (Part Number OCZJB20146 - $27.00).

You can get a lower price searching on the internet.

You have already accessed your control board.
So, lets replace the control board and capacitor.

1.) Un plug your unit.

2.) First ground yourself, static electricity will nock out your board. Rub your hands across something that is steel. Do not wear wool clothing.

3.) Your new control board will come in a anti-static silver bag.

4.) The control board is held in by several white pins. On the two sides of these pins are clips you must squeeze in to pull the board out.

5.) Systematically, remove one connector from the old board to the new board. The connectors have a locking tab at the top, squeeze the tab to remove. When inserting on the new board make sure these clips are locked in.

6.) replace the capacitor next to the board.

7.) Reattach the control board cover plate. Plug your unit back in. Allow 24 hours or less for the unit to balance the high pressure (160 PSI) liquid and the low side (65 PSI) vapor side.

Wireless speakers not linked

Have you attempted to push the search button on the back of the receiving unit? Power down the transmitting unit and the receiver and reset the signal button on the rear unit after re-powering both units. Power surges seem to fry components on the rear unit. surge protection is a must on these things.

We lost power and now when I try to turn it on "PROTECTION ON" appears and then it will turn off. Isn't there something I can do to fix this besides turning it on and off for an hour?

Normally, that's exactly how you fix it but it may take more than a half an hour. Some devices take as long as 24 hours. If the unit doesn't reset itself after 24 hours, something is wrong and the the unit needs servicing.
That being said, your manual say that in case of a power outage to turn the unit off and hold the STOP (the little square) button on the unit for longer than five seconds. NOTE: Doing this will reset the unit and erase all saved settings.

The Cateye ec t220 treadmill in our exercise room no longer has a functioning display. Nothing lights up. It is possible a power surge blew out a main circuit or something of that nature- we are on a...

If your treadmill was struck by a power surge unfortunately there is no way of fixing it, in fact it is a fire HAZARD. Basically a back-flow of electrical current has fried the appliance from the inside.
A good way of checking if this was the problem is to check smaller appliance's around the house that were plugged in around the same time the treadmill stopped working. Even if appliences are turned off at the switch they can still be effected.
If you have no problems with any smaller appliance then we can more or less rule out a power surge. Have you tried dissembling the plug, changing the fuse, moving the treadmill them plugging it in to a different socket? .......yes?
Then as this model is no longer in production i suggest you phone 303-443-4595 for advice as this is the North America helpline for cateye.

My monitor will no longer start up it just has a black screen

I estimate around $75~100 depend on hourly rate or less, more likely to have bad caps in the power supply, if the shop is real good, they should be able to fix it in less than an hour, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps:
