STATIC CHARGE just boughthis tv 10/15...has been working fine until last week.... My daughter caused the breaker to flip and my powerbar was located on this portion of the panel. Ever since this happened there has been a small static charge that slowly builds and creates "static lines" across the display...The only way to make them disappear(for about an hour or so) is to turn off all my hardware and reset the power bar. After I do this everything is a-ok on the display and then it re-appears Can anyone help?!?!?!

    i have static in my television

  • kjwilkes Aug 12, 2008

    I have had my Insignia for about a year and I am seeing "static" in the lower left jand corner of the screen. It doesn't always show, but when it does, it is distracting. It can be as small as a square inch or as large as a quarter of the visable area. Any ideas on what is causing it and how to fix it?

Plug your TV in a reliable surge suppressor or UPS , common problems arise from power losses and low voltage as well as spikes.These will really mess with you electronics.

Get a very good surge protector. Make sure it has close to or over 3000 joules and you should be fine.

First thing I'd check is the powerbar. Did you plug the TV into the outlet direct? What caused the breaker to trip? If it was an overload by using too much current, there is a possibility that there is a loose connection in your house wiring causing arcing and the interiference lines you're seeing on the display. You may even want to try the set in a different outlet if the powerbar checks ok, and if the set then works fine, get an electrican ASAP!

Stove top stopped working but oven and warmer element work.

You have a defective breaker. Once you replace it the oven will get the correct voltage restored.

Belling XOU69MF Tripping breaker after on for 30-40 mins after steam cleaning

That's why you use easy off. LOL
If you have run it twice then any moisture should be gone, besides if it was moisture it should trip quick, sounds like a bad element causing the trip. I have never seen a breaker go bad, but they can.

Can a circuit breaker fail? There is no power in my daughters room, but the circuit breaker seems to be fine. It doesn't reset or fix the problem.

Make sure to click breaker completely over to one side and then click all the way back to reset.

Yes, breakers go bad.

You can check your breaker in a simple way.

Turn main breaker OFF.
Mark daughter's breaker.
Take cover off breaker box.
The main breaker will still have power on the lugs where big wires connect.
Rest of box will have no power.
Notice that each 120 volt breaker has a wire connected to end of breaker.
Use screwdriver and tighten this wire.
If screw is already tight, then loosen screw and pull wire out, and move wire to another breaker marked with same amperage. For example if daughter's breaker is 20, then move wire to another 20. Now there will be two wires connected to that breaker.
Turn power ON and see if daughter's room is restored.
This set up will work fine until you have time to replace breaker with same brand as marked on breaker box, usually available at home center (if available).

If power is not restored by moving wire, then there is a loose wire inside a junction box located in daughter's room.
Test each receptacle in room to confirm that nothing on that circuit has power.
If some receptacles have power, start opening other receptacle boxes looking for loose wire, especially at the quick-connects where wires stab into back of receptacle device.
If whole circuit is off, then to isolate location of loose wire, start at the ceiling box, and see if there is a loose black or white wire. Most electricians run wire from breaker to the ceiling box, and then other wires spread out from there and go box to box until each box has a black and white wire that connects back to original breaker.

Oven will not heat - lights on panel do work

I keep having the same issue with mine, but if I go to the fuse box and flip the breaker off for about 10 seconds and then back on, it works fine. Obviously this isn't a permanent fix but it gets my stove working again for a couple of days usually. I have not been able to find anything on this issue until I saw your post.

I think that the thermostat breaker in your compressor is getting tired.
Please before spending your money in the PBA clean all the guts of your refrigerator from the dust that accumulates .
Then try it and let's hope it's fixed,

Thank you.

Dryer flips breaker everytime

There is a short to ground somewhere.

Most likely where any wires go through the cabinet into the door or inside the door where a hinge or other moving part ir rubbing it.

Disconect power (unplug it) and inspect all wiring close to those areas for worn spots. If you have an OHM meter, you can ohm each wire to ground and see which one is shorted, then trace it back to the problem area.

Sound is just static

Don't understand why, perhaps rca contracted microsoft for their programming, but when I unplugged the TV and it rebooted, everything is fine. I still am concerned about the warning on the back.
