Question about Philips CCX192AT 19 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

No picture subsequent to "tin foil experiment" on screen

Following an experiment using tin foil to collect and demonstrate static electricity charges on the screen, the charges sparked against the video input port (yellow) resulting in no picture, just sound. As I assured my mom this would not happen, I now have to fix it, and I stand corrected! PLEASE help! Can this be fixed?

Static discharge to the TV can cause lots of strange things to happen, replace the main board and your problems should be fixed

SOURCE: Each time it powers up, but screen is all static and no sound, after while screen has fine picture.

CTV's PSIP seems to be somewhat "bad", in that quite a few devices have or have had problems with it.

Please contact Bestbuy. They have the option to send a technican at your place. You can also contact the manufacturer.

Hello All,

I posted this earlier, however I believe it applies in this case to:

This can be any number of things, here is a possible listing:

1) No High Voltage (check the IHVT or the trippler)

2) CRT filament transformer winding open (check the windings that supply voltage to the CRT filaments)

3) Video / CRT socket boards bad (highly unlikely but check anyway)

4) High Voltage power supply malfunctioning (related to problem #1)

This listing is a good starting point. I would suggest that you purchase a schematic to aid in testing the voltages mentioned in the 4 steps above. If you have a background in electronics then do the above, if not please ask a qualified TV technician to perform these steps.

Thank you,

I hope this helps,

Could be ethier one the dish box or the tv itself have cold solders joints on the FBT-Flyback transformer.That the big black block of plastic with a red wire with a black cap hook to the CRT-(tv tube).Call ur tv Dish box customer service,get a replacement box.See, if this will solved ur tv problems.If not,than the tv must be taken aparts and must have tools like a soldering iron,a roll of solders,also must know basic soldering.Resolders all the coldsolders joints on the FBT for a better High voltages contact to the CRT-(tv tube).This problems,will be solved.

Cobra model GA-bn and GA-cd charger. Won't charge.Tried previous suggestions to cover base of one battery with foil I used aluminum foil, not tin foil. Charges for a minute or two then stops.

Depending on price point, it may be more cost efficient to simply replace the units as opposed to time spent attempting repair.

Buttons on console do not work, except no. 2 speed button and +/- speed buttons

Here is a solution for those of you who have experienced recurring dead buttons on the console. For me, all buttons would function initially but after a few minutes of use (belt running), all buttons would stop functioning except speed buttons 5, 7 and 12. Switch off, unplug the treadmill and all button functions would come back on next power-up hours later.
The problem is that the electronics cannot handle the static electricity generated by the running belt motion. The static in your finger as you press the button penetrates the thin membrane switch and goes right into the electronics. It takes several hours turned off for the excess charge to dissipate and control to be restored.

1. Gently peel the button decal off for both sides (incline and speed), do not remove or pull on the flex circuit underneath. This is the membrane switch.

2. Use the decals (sticky side up) to trace the outline on paper and tin foil and carefully cut out the profiles.


3. Stick the paper in using looped or double sided tape, careful not to place tape over or near a button locations. I used white printer paper because it is not very thick. A layer too thick pay prevent the button from working.


4. Place tin foil cutout over the paper. The foil needs to be connected to earth ground (the 3rd pin on the power plug) and I don't trust the frame is properly grounded so I ran a wire from the foil in the console to a grounded screw near the power switch (where the plug wire ground connects). Make sure the treadmill is unplugged when you are working on it! The incline and speed side foil sheets are also connected with a wire.



5. Cover the foil layers with a layer of clear packing tape to protect the foil if you ever need to remove the button decals again.

6. Check function and if all is well, replace the button decals.

The paper increases the dielectric strength while the foil layer shunts the static charge of your fingers to ground. Since I made this improvement it has run perfectly! Good Luck

Asus eee pc sends terrible buzz from mixer to speakers when charging

Wrap some aluminum foil around your charging cord (right up to the point where it plugs into the computer)
This happens when elecromagnetic interference happens from the electricity from your cord and your A/V cords come too close together without protection.
Tin foil, any can's if you cut them properly, essentially just something to keep the interference away from the cord. You mostly notice this at concerts or if playing an electric guitar and it gets too close to the amp it creates a humming/buzzing noise that can get pretty annoying. Try the tin foil though that should work fine, don't be afraid to use a lot of it either, it won't hurt anything, the better wrapped it is the more likely you will get rid of the buzz

How do I remove tin foil baked on brand new oven?

Unfortunately you can't remove that foil, you will end up doing more damage to the liner. the only thing you can do is replace the liner. And it's a big job, if the manufacture makes a replacment part for your unit, and if they do it will be costly.
Good luck....

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven

Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. The melted foil will not affect oven operation. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You will damage the panel. The only option you have is to replace the panel (if replaceable) or the entire oven liner...
