Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck..

Why are my pictures so blurry like someone swiped it


Your lens is dirty or when you take the picture the exposure setting is took long and then any movement will make the picture look blurry.

Have you tried putting the camera on a table and taking a picture?

I JUST got a Nikon Cool Pix L22 but no matter what setting I use EVERY picture is blurry. I am an art teacher and understand shutter speed and aperture, I even used a tripod. The pictures are still...


Most likely your fisheye lens attachment is out of alignment. An internal element may have come unscrewed or unglued. The other option (I'm assuming you have already checked this) is that it is incorrectly attached to the camera - check your threads and make sure it wasn't cross threaded and that there are no blockages to the lens attachment being screwed in completely. If the fisheye lens is not in the correct position relative to the CoolPix lens, then the pictures will be blurry.

My screen is discolored and blurry. Please advise..


Sounds like contaminated fluid. Each of the 3 crt's in your set have coolant to keep them cool. This coolant over time gets contaminated and causes extreme blurry picture. ITs extremely common on the Magnavoxs. Its also a pretty big job. Replacing the fluid isnt too difficult but because the tubes have to be removed it means both physical alignment and electronic alignment will be necessary. Also dont remove the green tube until you have done both the blue and red and aligned them to the green. Then do the green.. I hated doing that job lol.. I dont recommend you trying it and probably wouldnt be cost effective to pay a shop to do it either.. I recommend buying a new set... Sorry

Blurry images


If it is brand new, return the camera, and show what is happening.
The blurry pictures has to do with a few things. A damaged lens system, a dirty lens, other damage to the lens while it was extended, water or moisture damage can also cause this, including internal circuit damage or broken parts.
Make sure it has not had an impact or other damage, because if it had, then more than likely you will have no warranty, and it will not be taken back by the store.
