Your TV swithes itself off, probably to standby to protect from doing further damage. If you, or an experienced friend have any idea of the power supply voltages in the set, then get him to monitor each voltage when you switch on. Bear in mind the chassis metal may be live at 120 to 300 volts, and keep clear of the line output transformer. You may have to use the old type analogue volt meter with a pointer and scale, as the reading may only be there for a second or so. Remove any dust so that you are sure to see where to connect probes. There is usually an electrolytic capacitor for each voltage to connect the probes to. If the negative side is at chassis potential, then clip the negative probe to this. If no reading is measured across one of the electrolytic capacitors, then this, or another component, may be short circuit. The rectifier diode or a fuse will have blown, or be overloaded. The fault is detected by protection circuits, which cause shutdown to standby. If you can locate the protection circuit, its input data (voltages) may give you a clue where to look.

Sounds like you have an overload somewhere in your TV. It's not a direct short in the power supply itself but one of the circuits powered by the power supply. Most likely it is in the horizontal output circuit. Stargazer

I have a Westinghouse VR-4625 TV that powers on, but fails to boot.

Try this....with the TV off put a hair dryer in the back lower fins of the TV and let it run on high for about 5 mins, shut the hair dryer off and see if the set comes on the way it should..If it does I'll tell you how to fix it, if it doesn't I've got some other ideas but want you to try this first

Tv won't turn on

Have a shop look at it, there is a power relay that either is causing this or something right around it is, seen this about five times over the last ten years in Hitachi sets. I had one customer who had it connected to a wall switch and from time to time had to unpower it several times but once on it was fine.....

Every few months the compressor will not come on. It will try over and over but will not start. At the same time, the light does not come on when the door is opened. I can unplug the power cord and plug it...

The lighting circuit and the compressor electrical circuit are independent from each other once they go past the electrical terminal block, (where the power cord connects to, on the back of the fridge).
For the description of the problem, it sounds like you have a loose power cord terminal connection at the block, a defective power cord or power outlet.
Try connecting the fridge on the other power outlet (if it is connected to a regular dual outlet ), some times the contactors, over time, tend to loose the grip on the power cord plug and the contact is lost, when you remove the plug from the outlet and plug it back in, restores temporarily the contact again, or, the plug itself can be defective and loses contact. Replacing the power cord and using a different power outlet (even if it is a dual) will let you know if that where the problem was. If that doesn't solve the problem, let me know and will do some more troubleshooting.
Good Luck and keep me posted.

I have a PF erorr code on my oven screan

"POWER FAILURE" code, unplug the power from the range for 20 minutes or longer, plug back into the power outlet, set time and if the micro-processor didn't take a hit during the power failure you should be up and going once again.

I unplugged my model RP5435B clock and when I plugged it back in to the outlet the time will not set. How do I set the time again?

FIRST!!! Replace the "standby" 9V battery. Then unplug and replug... you should now be able to set the time.

We have a black screen with no audio. We are able to pull up the guide, but we can't watch tv or anything recorded on the DVR. How do we fix it?

No fatal error, try this. If you would, please unplug the receiver from the power outlet for about 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, plug it back in and let me know when it comes on (it will do this by itself). Once it does, it should be showing Message 015, “Acquiring Satellite Signal”.


I loose my picture but i still get sound

Just try to reset so picture will come again, some LCD TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the LCD TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the LCD TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the LCD TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the LCD TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the LCD TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the LCD TV.

Hope it may help you;



The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.

Router keeps going off

Try to hard reset the router and re-flash or update the firmware of the device. Make sure to know all the internet settings before resetting the router so you can recongure it again.

You can ask your router manufacturer on where to download firmware.

Hope it will hel you.
