I have a sharp aquos 32 my son has ripped out the input bit can i solder back on


It can be replaced but if part of the tuner a bit tricky for a novice---a suggestion:

If the set has audio/video input jacks on rear---use a cable box etc to route the signal into those--select that input and change channels with the box--------you can even use a old vcr and connect your signal to it and route it that way---get around the issue.

typical repair if the tuner itself is not damaged (fitting goes into it) can average over 100 dollars and double that if tuner has to be replaced----if you get the fitting replaced get a slide on adapter for the end of the coax so if it gets yanked it will slide off......

Fixing a inop control panel on a dishwasher. (with update)


Random lights come on but won't respond to any button commands. Seems frozen in time.

TURN OFF POWER
My latest update at the end

You will need a screwdriver bit like a torx bit to remove the control panel. There are 6 screws. One on each corner and 2 around the latch hold area. This will allow the control panel to flop over. I went ahead and removed the entire door panel also (just below the control panel) not knowing they were separate units. This will also give you more room to mess with the wiring. But you won't need to do that.

You will see, inside the control panel, a grey box with all the wiring going to it. My problem was the green flat ribbon cable sliding into the left side of that gray box. To get to it, there are 2 white clips (same side as the cable entry) which are just -molded keepers -easily forced out of place with a small flat screwdriver. Don't break them, but pressure them to the outside direction until they release the box. The other end of the box just tucks/slides under a holder which is part of the casing and not removable.
YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THIS BUT I went ahead and removed all the wiring. The 3 big plugs just pull out, I can't remember if they had keepers or not so look around before pulling something loose. The little ones going into the back side, have keepers also. The box is labeled for these by color. You really won't need to remove these to get the box and cable out.

I have been in there a couple of times since and now I just remove the 6 screws on the top and roll it over to get access. (2 on each side and the 2 at the latch point)

The ribbon cable slides into a black plug "adapter" then that adapter, which now the new end of the cable, plugs (slides) into the box. The plug itself is the problem. Nothing makes the connection of the cable to the plug permanent. It wobbles around and is too loose to make a good permanent connection. First time I just wobbled it around to make a connection cleaning move but it was still loose. That worked for about a month then reoccurred.

New info: Problem reappeared. The problem is definitely that the ribbon cable connector head is loose on the cable. The black plastic end of the cable where it slides into the pins on the box as described earlier. Evidently this looseness is the problem, So I heard of someone taking the end off and soldering directly to the pins on the box...I will try to avoid that. This time I took slip joint pliers (the regular house hold pliers) and gently reclamped the black end piece so there is no looseness in the connecton. You are just gently applying clamping pressure over and over again to get the plastic to bite better on the cable. Turning the pliers to the other side will get all areas on the plastic. I will see if this is good enough. If I don't correct this then it was OK.

If this doesn't do the trick you may have more problems electronic inside. You can further open the box to look for burned spots or other obvious problems. Several keepers along the edge of the box. It will open up showing a printed circuit board. Keepers also hold the PCB in place...so look around before prying ...if it isn't pretty easy to lift or remove anything...a keeper still has it.

You can test the washer now without putting it all back together. If you removed any wiring, just put all the wires back and hold it up and test it. All the buttons should be responsive now.

Sears parts has the best price for replacement. I found the entire control panel (without the box) for $115. The box was $112.

Don't panic...you can do this.

Latest update: (May 13,2015) After about 3 months of intermittent operation I got crazy and opened her up again and tried to do some soldering on it. Those ribbon lines are so thin a soldering iron will destroy the line before the solder melts. No luck. Broke down and ordered a new panel for $93 shipped from universalapplianceparts.com. It has an updated part replacement number and I hope is a better build of the cabling. Still cheaper than a new washer.

Good luck

How do you remove your sim card from the 6700 slide to replace with new?


I don't have this particular phone, but generally the sim card in under the battery. Before you start, make sure you have all your contacts and stuff stored on the phone, not the sim, or it all goes bye-bye when you change the sim. Snap off the back of the phone. Don't pry the battery out. Usually you have to look for 2 tiny little "latches" that hold it in. Sometimes there is a lever that you push to release the battery. Then you can see the sim card. Sometimes you release a little metal clip that holds it down. On other phones, you just slide the card out from under the metal holder. Pay attention to which way the card is turned, and don't put the new one in upside down. Then reassemble the phone.

I have a 1998 VW Caravelle 2.6i, and have a problem with no spark. I have replaced the coil but still have no spark. I also notice that when turning the ignition on, my fuel pump is not engaging. Could...


Check the fuel pump relay located in the engine compartment,but that shouldnt mess with the spark.
You might need to check the cam positioning sensor,a bag connection or a bad sensor will mess with the spark.
They cost about 40 dollars and even Autozone might have one.
If you have a OBD11 meter look to see what computer code you grt.
There is also an ignition relay that could have fried located also in the relay-fuse bank box inside the engine compartment.
Good luck,Gary

I need to know how to hook up my audiovox equalizer to my car stereo , I don't have a amp yet , is it still possiabe.?


if its one of those equalizers with the sliding controls and lights then yes it might as long as it doesnt tell you to ground the speakers. If its a cross over then you need amps for each of the 3 sounds , ( lows or bass,) ( mids or treble ) ( and highs ) Look on yahoo for the clubs and there is one that has wiring schematics for most every kind of electronic device. Be careful because its so easy to fry a radio messing with cheap sound inhancements. I have fried hundreds of electronic things learning and still do. Be extra anal about tape and connections for if one little strand of wire touchs anything its not supposed to it smokes the channel. Then you can listen to the wind. Good luck.

I have seen the higher power cb's fry the fm front end sectioon of the tuner section....did you try to put it on an aux input?....the click you hear is the amp protection relay and it sounds like it is working ok....if it were the output side of the power amp, then the relay wouldn't click after power up...it is probably the front end...this is the entire fm tuning section usually contained inside a metal box near where the antenna comes in

If it is happening, Take a magnetic screw driver and move around inside the sub woofer any how , The magnetic screw driver will collect your spare screw .If it will be not done please remove the sub woofer remove all the screw and then you will do it.

this is an old case and Im sure you have a new TV by now. The problem is the tuner. The grounds are cold and need to be re-heated. The tuner is the little box your cable plugs into. Open the back and you will see where it is soldered to the main board. Heat them back up with a little solder should be three points. while you are in there look around and see if you find more. if that doesnt work then you may have to take the case of the tuner off and look inside for more cold solder joints
