Hi,There are a number of reasons that might prevent a conventional (CRT) TV from turning on. If there is power to the set and it won't come on, there is an electronic problem. There are start up circuits inside the set, and they essentially form a "loop" of sorts. Any "break" in the loop, that is, any failed component in the loop, will prevent the set from starting up.

Some sets have an internal fuse, but very few actually do. Protection is provided by components other than a fuse, and the failure of any one of them will "kill" the set. It should be noted that some components in the set fail because others have failed. The failure of multiple components is possible because of the design of the set.

It could just be the relay that turns the set on when the remote or main power button is press.

Some sets have a circuit breaker on the back that my have tripped. May look like a little red button that you press to reset. Some set have a internal fuse. This fuse is something that needs to be replaced by a professional. If it has a breaker on the back and you set it and it works, no problem. If you reset it and it trips again, have a pro look at your set.

check those and get back to me..

Take care.

My dishwasher burnig smell and smoke coming out

Shut it off and go turn off the breaker on that circuit. If it's still burning, hit it with a fire extinguisher or call the fire department. Open a window to clear out the smoke and then call a repairman.

Curcuit Breaker appears to be on but no power?

It sounds like something in that circuit is causing the overload. Disconnect anything that is in that circuit, flip the breaker, and one item at a time plug whatever was on that circuit back in until it trips again. Then try that item in a different circuit and see if it does the same thing. It could also be that the breaker is worn out and is tripping at a lower point that it supposed to. In that case you would have to replace the breaker.

Sounds like you have linked these up to ignition switch out feed to the kill switch/running curcuit rather than the lighting curcuit out from the ignition. most bike run 2 somtimes 3 curcuits out from the ignition switch one running curcuit and one lighting.

Still runs ok, but doesnt dehumidify anymore, and today it started smelling really something was about to burn up...

One of the connections to the compressor is shorting underneath the protective cap. It is a very strange design for this contact point. Hope you have a good circuit breaker on the curcuit that your unit is plugged into.

Unit will not come on,power to everthing,but blower will not come

You probably have a bad breaker.

Check to see if you have 220 volts coming into the breaker. (while the breaker is in the ON position) and check to see if there is 220V coming out of the breaker. If no, then you have a bad breaker.

If you do, let us know and we can help you diagnose from there.

Air conditioner pop and then blew refriderant or something

Inspect the capacitor for failure. if it is not swollen or leaky then the compressor might be gone.264f733.jpg
