Question about Opteka Home Security

Open Question

My Opteka digital picture frame has suddenly stopped displaying pictures. Power is on - there's a periodic "ticking" at about 0.5 Hz, that sounds like it's trying to access a hard drive. There's also a green light that brightens in time with each tick. I unplugged it overnight but that didn't help. I play the pictures off a USB stick, and haven't changed that recently. It was working fine for months, suddenly stopped for no apparent reason. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Hitachi 55" Plasma HDTV, 1 yr old, suddenly lost picture and sound, but power light still on.

It sounds like a shutdown circuit is being activated. This is normal in cases where the power supply id drawing excessive current. I would suggest that you get this looked at by a qualified professional. This is because this problem may be in the power supply and the voltages can get dangerous in this section of the TV set.

In any event if this is a power supply problem chances are the technician will just have to replace the power supply. Which should cost from 150-250 dollars.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: Help!! Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise

Yes. This is going to sound strange. Put the drive in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. Next day, take it out, hook it up, and see if it is recognized.

If so, under My computer, right click on the drive - click Properties - then Tools, then Error Checking. Check box Automatically Fix File System Errors. Let it run. If everything shows up, be ready to transfer wnat you want off of it.

Freezing shrinks the metal parts . Microscopically, but often enough to get stuck parts free enough to get working.

I just went through this with a 750Gig Book. now i have reformatted the drive (after transferring all over to new drive) and the clicking is gone and all disk checks are fine and i wonder whether to trust this device ever again... Hate to just throw out a large drive.

SOURCE: x2 MW19R is ticking and no display?


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have any questions.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Will not display larger file size pictures from my new digital camer. The digital frame is model DPF-1021. From our old digital camera, the file sizes of pictures wer under 200KB. The new camera produces...

No you simply MUST have the pictures in the EXACT format & size that the Frame uses...You can simply re-size the pic's Usually they are pretty picky what they run... usually it will be a set format.. say JPG, and size say 200KB and color depth say 24/32bit. If one uses anything else your are going to get problems.
Go here to get a free good image resizer, download and install, then all you do is right click image and resize.
