Question about Leviton 15A Decora Electrical Outlet Light Almond R56053250TS (R56053250TS)

1 Answer

The switch I am replacing has two red plugged into the back and two black plugged into the one below. If I want to keep the same set up I can just connect the two red to the top brass screw and the two black to the bottom but must break the small brass tab between the screws not the plastic, correct? If I don't care to use the wall switch all I have to do is to cap off the red and connect one black to one brass screw and one to the other brass screw w/o touching the brass tab,correct?

If you can tell me, The reds are to a light or something right? and are they tied together in a wire nut with a black wire or are there two blacks together and two reds together? If so then you can wire it that way and break the brass crossover but if they are two reds and two seperate blacks then you could have an issue. Let me know further, thanks.

    The two reds plug into the same hole and the two blacks plug together into the bottom hole. I assume this is so the top half of the outlet gets power only when the switch isthrown, Can I just eliminate the reds by capping them off and just put one black on the top and one on the bottom?

Ps3 plays in black and white with av composite cable

Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.

What to Do:

  1. Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
  2. Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
  3. composite_inputs_window.png
  4. Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
  5. If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
    • Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
    • If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
      • An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
      • A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."

TV won't come on.

Is the red light on? Does it change to blue when you press the power button?

If the red light is lit, part of the power supply is working to provide the standby voltage. If it is not lit at all, check to make sure power cord from the mains power (wall outlet) cord is securly and fully inserted in the back of the set. If it still remains dark, the power supply is the primary suspect.

If no light, initially check the fuse, it is 5 Amps and a little smaller than a mini marshmallow. It is located on the right side of the board as you face the back of the set. It will be in the vicinity of the connector comming up from the power cord adapter. To test this, check other voltages as described below first, as the power supply board must be removed to get at the bottom leads of the fuse.

If the light simply remains red no matter what button is pushed, the power supply board is the first place to check for faults. If you have a voltmeter, unplug the set and remove the center plastic panel of the set, this reveals a metal plate, which is retained by three more screws along the bottom. The base can remain in place.

With that plate removed, use care when it is plugged in as there is lethal v voltage potential on the right side of the opening as you are facing the back of the set. There will be two boards, the one on top with the metal plates visible is the power supply. The lower board processes the inputs into video and audio components and is the "A&D board", These are important to know if you are buying them off of Ebay or other internet vendor.

With the set unplugged look for a mounted connector on the left side near the top where 2 sets of multiple wires come out of it and plug into a pair of connectors on the lower side of the power supply board (Black,red and another color) There are multiple red and multiple black wires- in the mounted connector, there is just enough room to insert a probe tip with a little bit of force, just enough to ensure the tip is in contact with the conductive connector in 1 each of the black; insert the black test lead from the meter, and the red test lead of the meter to one of the red in the larger mounted connector. The several red wires attach to the same copper pad on the power supply board so only one measurement needs to be taken to determine if power is available for the inverter board or boards. The black wires attach to one pad as well. With the meter set to it's highest DC voltage scale, plug the set back in and switch to lower scales as needed to ***** a avoltage measurement. see if you have a voltage in the area of 24 volts. If you do- check the fuse(s) on the inverter board or capacitors of same boards (depends on production run.

If you have 24 volts, the blue pilot lamp should be lit on the front. You can see on the face of the set if the tubes are lit or not. If you have 24 volts but no light- the fault is with the inverter or the CCFL tubes. The inverter should be pretty obvious if it is the issue because the capacitors will have bulging tops. The chip fuse for each section should checked for continuity If there is, the fuse is good. These require a high ripple current type of electrolytic capacitor. A general purpose type will not last in this location.

If the set has the CCFL's lit, but no response to an input signal, move the test leads carefully, or unplug set to move them to the corresponding red and black wires of the bundle that plug just above the paired sets that go to the inverters, the upper set has 3 red, 3 black, and 2 other colors on the connector. You should see a voltage measuring between the red and the black. If no voltage, or less than about 3 volts, the power supply board is at issue. If the voltage is greater than that, the A&D board is likely at fault, this is the board that is below the power supply board..

You are trying to replace a 4-way switch with a receptacle. The best that you can hope for is a switched receptacle. In the same box you should see two white wires wirenutted together. That is the neutral. You will have to pigtail off of the whites wires to the silver (or white, neutral) screw on the receptacle using the same gauge wire. Then, pick a pair, say the two blacks, and wirenut them together with a pigtail to the brass screw (hot) on the receptacle. To finish, wirenut the two reds together. Do not connect them to anything. Don't forget to also pigtail the (bare) ground to the green screw on the receptacle.
As a result, you will find that the receptacle will only work when one of the other 3-way light switches in the circuit are operated, again, this is NOT best practice, but will accomplish what you are trying to do.

Yesterday, i played my PS3 on a hd tv using the hdmi cord for the first time, then when switching back to a regular tv and using the red, white , and yellow rca cord, the ps menu didn't show?

There are a few ways to remedy this situation.

1) If you have access to that HDMI port on the TV, plug it back in and switch the settings back to composite. Your screen will go black which means you did it right.

2) I've only done this once and it was a trial-by-error step. Plug it into the tv, turn it on, hold your finger over the power button to turn it off. Hold your finger over the power button when turning it on. After a few cycles it worked for me. Key thing is to keep reseting it.

The safest thing to do is get the HDMI tv to switch your settings back

Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.

that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!

Hitachi 53fdx20b picture is red

This is a set first made in 2002. I have seen a few of them with too much red.

Most likely what is wrong is the RED SCREEN CONTROL. It is located behind the front grill assembly at the front of the set. Screws usually secure it from the back on either side and then it pulls off--held by pegs usually.

Behind it is an inspection plate with several screws. Behind that is a BLACK block about 3 inches square with six controls(everything is black) One row of three will be marked FOCUS--stay away from those. The other row will be marked SCREEN.

With a flashlight you will have to look closely at the two rows of controls--they will have r,g,b marked next to them. (red, green, blue)

If you go to a Black and white program and the background is redish etc--take the set to a unused Video input2_bing.gif and after you locate the RED SCREEN CONTROL turn it slowly (less than 1/8 of a turn) to the left---the idea is to adjust just until the screen does not show red---on a blank input it should be black.

Double check it on a Black and White program and then if it was the problem the color should now be normal.

These sets did have some problems with that Screen /Focus block going bad--the entire block costs under 25 dollars and all the wires on the back of it plug in; if you have to keep adjusting it over a short period of time replace it or live with it.

Replaced fan relay but now lowing fuses

This might be a ground wire loose somewhere. Or a hot wire exposed to a ground. Electrical problems are the worst part of a car to fix. Try to replace just the wires or the entire harness to the fan relay.
Hope this helps.

In replacing push button switch INDAK 681064-01N I forgot to record the wiring sequence, please help

If you look at the switch with the pushbutton on the top, the white wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the upper left terminal, the red wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the lower left terminal (just below where the white wire attaches), the black wire from the cord to the motor attaches to the upper right terminal and the short black wire going to one of the two pins that plug into the extension cord attaches to the lower right terminal (just below the where the black wire to the motor cord attaches).

If you are attempting to install an aftermarket radio Don't butcher the plugs on your Toyota ... simply go to a car stereo shop and buy an adapter plug for $10-$20 then wire it to your new radio ... then just plug them together (the wires on the adapter are marked) You'll likely need a dash kit too ... save yourself from a lot of frustration time and money! ....
