Question about Thomson 28VK25US TV

Maxim 1160 (Thomson) 32" Widescreen CRT - no signal

I was given the above 100 MHz widescreen TV, that's in good cosmetic condition although a bit on the heavy side. I am not sure of the age of the TV, but at I guess I would say 4 years max. I can't get any signal at all, it's all snow with the channel number along with a no signal label and a countdown. The arial/coax is providing a signal - I have no problem with my existing TV. I have also tried a DVD player in one of the SCARTS, but nothing on any the AVs. In fact it doesn't appear to go to AV mode (blank screen at all, but a label suggests that I am - it's still snow. Everything else appears to be OK. I don't mind chucking money at it, but would it be worth it? It also has a band of blank screen of 4CM in hight and another band of blank screen of 2CM at the bottom.

Your going to need the original remote first. then go into the menu and do a channel search on it. if it goes through and finds no channels then the tuners bad. You could have that famous RCA on nboard tuner fault where alot of sheild grounds are bad. This is not a job for the layman. if you cannot get channels by doing a channel scan call out an rca or thompson repair person.

If its what you want and the price is reflective of the need for a new gear box, it could be good. However find a source for replacement box and mechanic who is comfortable to do the job first. Make sure you get it cheap enough to make it worth your while.

Is the safety of a cosmetic product evaluated once it hits the market?

Cosmetic safety reassurance does not end once a product is placed in the marketplace. Companies engage in ongoing, active monitoring of consumer experience to confirm cosmetic product safety.

Cosmetic and personal care product manufacturers have established post-market surveillance processes for the identification of potential safety issues related to their products. Such systems help to identify consumer use patterns, such as alternate uses or product combinations that may contribute to adverse events. These processes include regular surveys of consumer contacts received by a marketer or manufacturer either through toll-free 1-800 numbers on packages or direct correspondence.

Trend analyses of contact data, including evaluations of frequency and severity of adverse events, as well as comparison of these trends with historical information for other comparable products, also represent valuable mechanisms for identification of safety-related concerns. Although adverse reactions that are both serious and unexpected are extremely rare for cosmetic and personal care products, manufacturers must report knowledge of any instances of serious product reactions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Good remote control doesnt work in the tv

IF you haven't replaced the batteries it may just be the age of the remote although in good condition to the eyes, maybe you should consider getting a universal remote, it comes with a manual and a list of codes and instructions on how to program it on your TV.

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,

The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:

DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.
