I would suspect either the High voltage distribution block and/or the high voltage transformer as being at the root of your problem, especially with the HOT transistor being bad. If this set went out during a power surge/lightening storm however, all bets are off.

My he2t kenmore front load washing machine won't power on and there's a clicking noise


Vicki, i think that clicking sound is ok when you press start. TRY THIS.
1. close door securely 2. press power after putting detergent.3 After making your selction for different levels eg hot,warm cold, press START.
usually these buttons are pretty reliable, GL

TSSU4812 refregirator making clicking sound and not cooling


Without a compressor analizer you will need to check the winding
resistance. or you can just cross your fingers and hope the relay
and start capacitor are the problem. Sounds like the condenser coil was plugged so you could possibly have a locked up compresor.I doubt it is low on refrigerant charge.

Turn it on yesterday and i can hear a clicking noise for approx 5 secs then the standby light comes on and no picture. any advice, or reccomened repair


1st POSSIBILITY.....usually after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to tube ) becomes weak - then TV won't get ON.. means no picture no sound ( in some TVs ''garrrr'' like sound comes - that sound is from EHT.... but it is rare....some times ''click click'' sound comes...it is from relay switch ) ..... but LED blinks - in some TVs along with EHT 1 or 2 components like resistor, transistors, etc will also gets deffective ................ 2nd POSSIBILITY - main capacitor (very big in size) is blowing off...................... - so solution is TV circuit board has to be checked to find whether only EHT is deffective or other components are also deffective - price of EHT will be between Rs.250 (US$ 5) to Rs.600 ( US$ 12) & price of capacitor will be between Rs.50 ( US$ 1) to Rs.150 ( US$ 3) ..........iam from bangalore.....i have no idea about component's price & service charge in your area.....this problem cannot be solved by user unless user is a technical person having idea about components (resistors, transistors,diodes,...etc..), having multimeter , soldering iron & other tools...so my suggestion call TV service engineer or contact panasonic service centre

Hi. This is an all too often occurrence. The TV's manufactured in the earlt to mid 1990s relied on an inferior set of capacitors in the power supply and mainboard components. They should have lasted about 25 to 30 years, but most are only lasting 5 or 6. The cheap capacitors pop, like a small balloon, or an overheated radiator, the capacitors contain an electrolyte gel, and this gel swells when induced with a charge. The cheap capacitors can split down the sides, boil over, or even pop the top off of them. If you look at the circuitry, you will see them standing up like small buttons, most with 3 wires coming out of the bouuton of them. Look to see if they have exploded like a battery, if, not, then your entire power supply is likely at fault.

Hi,
TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate


Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.
