Chuck that piece of S_it in the garbage and pack the whole can off the France. Hopefully you bought a replacement plan or equivalent when you purchased it. Brought mine back after 2 days of blue screen issues, Best Buy replaced with a 1G Garmin Nuvi. Bye Bye Magellan, you bunch of French pinkie raised ****.

Dryer heat won't come on every time. Sometimes

That is probably some burred contacts inside the timer. Most timers cannot be serviced but this timer can be if you are handy and careful. You can file down the contacts in this timer and it will work ok for a while and if it keeps on being intermittant you know you gotta buy a new timer. It is simpler and cheaper just to clean the contacts though.

My FP7317 sometimes goes off and I can't get it on again. After removing AC power for some minutes and powering it up again the monitor works fine. Sometimes for some minutes, sometimes for hours. Any help...

alexanderdeu, All you need to do is INSPECT the printed circuit "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply" board, and do a bit of reading/research and you will know exactly what to look for and how to correct the "intermittant black screen" problem. If warranty on unit is valid, USE THAT FIRST!!!! If warranty not option then read more of my FIXYA profile to learn about all other options you have. Your CCFL backlit monitor no different than any other brand!!! Visit other web links you find in profile and watch some of the longer and more USEFULL video clips found on YOUTUBE. Hope this gets you started on DIY repair of your unit. If this response helps, please return to rate it on FIXYA. Good luck guy!! 12fixlouie

Panasonic PT-47WX53 has intermittant convergance issue

I would chack the solder connections at the convergence ICs first. Since the set "recovers" on its own, it suggests a connection issue rather than a defective component. Also, if the ICs were installed without sufficient heat sink compound, this could happen as well. Look at low valued resistors in the area of the ICs for signs of overheating as well.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Hi, I have a Vizio P42. Worked fine for 5 years. Today is has a vertical blue stripe 1.25" wide, 4" from left side of screen. Blue stripe remains even if all inpust cables are removed. Problem is...

it's burning out. that's a sign of tv failing. there is no repair for that if you used it for 5 years, i doubt you would have warranty for that by now, best option is to replace it.

Rutabaga, The most common reason for intermittent power is a small IC chip on the backside of the I/O board which is attached to the rear housing of your unit. If your unit's warranty has already expired I would recommend the following. This is at your own risk. Grounding yourself is recommended. 1. Take off the antenna by rotating it as far counter-clockwise as possible (all the way up) and pull it off. 2. Take out 4 screws 3. Hold both front housing and rear housing with and gently pull the two housings apart. Once it's barely opened unplug the RF cable attached to the corner of the main board. It will either be gray or black depending on when it was made. 4. The other end of the RF cable is connected to the I/O board attached to the rear housing. This is the board that has the small IC chip that rubs against the rear housing which causes it to come off. 5. There are 6 or 8 small screws holding the I/O board to the rear housing. Remove them. 6. Once you got it off, look at the back. On the bottom backside of the I/O board next to the metal heat shield there should be 3 small IC chips. The lowest one is the one that rubs off. If the IC chip is present try looking at it through a magnifying glass and even push it a little bit to make sure it's not loose. If the IC chip isn't there, then look around for that rattling piece. (Either way I suppose look for the cause of the rattle) Soldering: If you find that the IC chip is loose, then you will need to solder it back on. This is not a lead-free unit therefore you can use lead. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, then atleast you have found the problem and can take it to an electronics shop for them to solder it back on. If you feel comfortable doing it, then by all means knock yourself out. If you have any further questions then please ask before proceeding. -Daniel

Basslink intermittant

Push/pull on the gain control knob-> That's what went bad in mine. Taping it down works for a while. Part number: 115V503B101 ($1.92) It will have to be unsoldered and then install the new one. It took me a long time to figure this one out. Initially a good knock on the unit would solve it for a few days, then hrs, then minutes.
