How Does an MRI Work

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), also known as nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, is a technique for creating detailed images of the human body.
The human body is mostly water. Water molecules (H20) contain hydrogen nuclei (protons), which become aligned in a magnetic field. An MRI scanner applies a very strong magnetic field (about 0.2 to 3 Teslas, or roughly a thousand times the strength of a typical fridge magnet), which aligns the proton "spins."
The scanner also produces a radio frequency current that creates a varying magnetic field. The protons absorb the energy from the variable field and flip their spins. When the field is turned off, the protons gradually return to their normal spin, a process called precession. The return process produces a radio signal that can be measured by receivers in the scanner and made into an image.

When I turn off my television my vip722k powers off

There should be 2 buttons on the remote control that turn on power. One should be for all devices controlled by it and the other for devices you press first and then press that power button.

Remote key does not operate doors (batteries are new)

If you simply replaced the battery in the key, it fell out of synch with the vehicle, there is a procedure in your owners manual to resynch the key to the system. If you follow the procedure, and the key does not work, the system may have become disabled, and you need to go through the provedure again to enable it and synch the key.

If that still does not get it synched, you will likely need to take it to Benz dealership to have them synchronize it. Should run around 50 bucks.

I can not turn on the receiver with the remote control, turning it off works. What can I do? Please Thank you in advance,

Must have a bad remote control then . Did something spill onto the remote near the power on button? Short of getting a new remote you could try poping thr remote control apart and cleaning it out with a mild detergent. Larry's Electronics

My Samsung 32" LCD TV keeps turning itself off then back on. We think the problem might be the remote (BN59-00598A). Have you ever heard of this problem and do you think it's the remote?

You may have a power supply problem. This model year of Samsung TVs had a part Capacitor issue. Symptoms vary by model, but most often they take a long time to come on (clicking on/off/on/off). Locating the parts is easy once you have the rear cover off. The bad caps have swollen tops and are near the cable that connects the power supply (AC cord has a connector which plugs in to it) to the main PCB (board that your cables plug into). This connector is located at the top right of the power supply. I have a tutorial on solder here on FixYa, click on my user name to have a look if you like.

LG 26lx1d tv will not turn on. Power supply is fine. Remote control is working. Also tried on/off button on tv and tv does not turn on. Red light blinking on front bottom of tv near remote receiver.

Have an LG26Lx1D for about 3 years, dropped off by my son.(Figures).Power light just blinking, but went back to red.Removed back panel, and metal cover. Just above antenna/cable input, its a small fan,mine was full of dirt. Blow off dirt, and make sure its turning freely.
Install back the covers, an voila....its a miracle...its working again.
Good luck

My 20 year old liftmaster model 1040 or 1050 opens on its own. I changed the remote code 3 times and replaced the wall switch. Any ideas? I even went around the neighborhood to see if my remote worked on...

Look at the LED light next to theSMART/LEARN button on rear of the motor unit. You may need to removea light lens cover in order to see it. If the light is flashingrapidly this means you have a stuck button on one of your remotecontrols. Take the batteries out of each remote control. When youremove the batteries from the bad remote, the light will stopflashing. This remote needs to be replaced.

If one of your neighbors remotecontrols is inadvertently programmed into your receiver, you doorwill open when their remote is activated. If this happens you willneed to clear out your receiver and reprogram your remote controls.Press and hold the smart/learn button for 6 seconds or until you seethe small LED light near the button turn itself off. If the abovesteps have been followed and the symptoms continue, there may be anelectronic short in either the wall control button or the receiverlogic board. In this case, remove the wall control wires fromterminals 1 and 2 on the motor unit. Should the symptoms persistafter the wires are removed, replace the receiver logic board. If thesymptoms stop with the wall control wires removed from the motorunit, replace the wall control button, and the wires leading to thewall control button.

Yamaha rx-v800 turns off

Sounds like your receiver has a cold solder joint on the power board at a transistor or capacitor. Not a major repair, however, it will probably run $100 or so to pull it apart, hunt it down and fix the problem. Not sure of your problem with the DVDR. Do you have a "line conditioning, surge protection" unit? Not a Power strip or low end monster surge. Panamax, APC, Furman, make line conditioning surge units that keep your power steady and will shut down in case of voltage fluctuation in both directions. They cost from 200 to 2000 depending on the equipment you are protecting. It is a necessary component to any system. Hope this helps.

TV will not turn on

Assuming you are absolutely sure the TV is getting power,
If you have an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the two prongs on its plug. If no conductivity (over 1 meg Ohm) the fuse inside is popped. Take the cover off, look in the area near the power cord, it is the usual 5AG type (glass cylinder) fuse. If you replace it and it pops again then measure all the diodes in the rectifier circuit (near the fuse).
Many times power transients will just blow these input power devices. However, many times it will go much deeper and get the TV's processor brain. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years old, I wouldn't go any deeper than the input power circuit.
