There are two possible problems. The first one I suggest as it is the easiest. Unplug your TV and leave it this way for a week or two. Seems like a long time as you may be curious as to what the problem is. If you can stand the wait, now plug in your TV and power it up. If the TV powers up and you have video and audio, great. This may only last a moment or two and the TV will shut down again. If this is the case, you will have to replace the the small signal board (ssb). These are very expensive , about 250 to 300 bucks for one. I have to honest with you, but chances are, this is not the problem. The next solution I mention will be the most common problem. If you have any knowledge of TV repair, or know of a electronic hobbiest, find one. Remove the back cover and you will see two large boards on the floor of the TV. Be sure your TV is unplugged of course. You will see in the center between the two boards, there are jumper tape connections. These also have location numbers. You will look for jumper connection 1516, you will want to disconnect this one only. Now plug in your TV and power it up. If the high voltage comes up, the picture tubes will light up for a few seconds or stay on. If they shut down, don't worry, we have found the problem. The thing here is we are on to something. You may notice the picture on the TV will be out of alignment. The convergence ICs , and resistors on the large signal module will need replaced.Please see this website for repairs,www.TvRepairKits.com. They show photo and detailed instructions as well as having the parts for repair. In the next problem category, if the TV picture is good, then I would say you have an audio output IC is bad. I have not repaired one with this problem. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

What are some cheap options for long distance moves?


U-Haul offers a service where you can pack everything up and helpers load the truck and when you get to your new home another set of helpers will meet you there to unload. It depends on how you set your budget as well. You may want to check out companies like pods where you load the storage trailer and a truck picks it up and drives it to your destination. ABF is a freight hauling company which offers a 26 ft. trailer that you load with a liftgate and that too will be brought to your new home. Shop around theres a lot of ways to save and have it done hassle free.

No it is not operator error. This is the worst stapler made. I had one, it did the same thing, I brought it back and bought an arrow stapler, works great.

You have to make sure that the router isn't still loading, to unload it you need to hook the internet to a local computer in your house. Just get on any website and then hook it up to your PS3 and it should work.

you may have to mess around with the screen resolutions on the compaq, as your notebook may have a lower screen resolution that your TV can handle, but your Compaq may be above the resolution support of your tv.
