This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby making it to misbehave.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.

To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like ""(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board from www/ to save you some stress.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't have the ability to read the fault, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

LCD TVs: 1276 and 1316
TVs: 0765, 0865, 1276, 1314, 1316, 1326, 1327, 1328, 1991, and 1992

I hope one of them works.

The 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.
If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.

i had the same problem. i opened the panel in the back of the tv (3 screws) and opened the aluminum panel (3 screws). there's a red led light located at the bottom left corner of the top board. to the right of the led light, you will find this thing with 4 switches. i turned the two bottom switches "burn" and "epmw" to on. so far tv have been working.

What shall i do if my pc is stromsparmodous?

"That means power saving mode - Go into Control Panel>Power Options and check (and if necessary change) the power settings - how long before the monitor shuts off etc.
Another check may be to go to the NVidia control panel (R click on desktop and it should show in the drop down menu). go to 3D settings > manage 3D settings and in Global tab click Restore button - this will restore the program's default settings for how the card manages its 3D settings."

Toshiba Satellite A105 hangs when charger is plugged

Toshiba Satellite laptops come with a unique power management software program that regulates the power consumption of your laptop. While this program is often helpful in extending laptop battery time, the program is also known to cause some operational difficulties when software conflicts occur. At some point you may want to change your power options, or remove the program.

Click "Start" and then "Control Panel." Locate the "Toshiba Power Manager" program among the Control Panel icons. Note that this differs from the familiar Windows "Power Options" icon. Open the Power Manager application. If you want to merely modify the current settings, the Power Manager gives you many options to choose from. For maximum battery life, consider setting the Power Manager to put the laptop into various states of "sleep" after so many minutes of inactivity. Select the menu items offered to achieve power savings for the monitor or hard drive, or both. Click "Save Settings" and exit the program. Remove the Power Manager if your laptop is prone to "freezing" or seems to have difficulty "waking up" from a Sleep or Hibernation mode. Go to "Start" and "Control Panel" and choose "Add Remove Programs." Navigate to the "Toshiba Power Saver" listing. Click "Remove." When Windows is done scrubbing the program from the system, click "OK" and exit Control Panel. Reboot. The Windows on-board power management program will now take precedence over this function.

If i leave computer on without anyone using it . computer goes to black/dark screen , can't perform any functions. also computer crashes at times during use.

You need to check your power settings. It is being set to go to turn of the drivers after a certain amount of time.

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options Then change the power options so it does not shut off the hard drive.

Unti wont keep set temp, it actually keeps changing the temp. itself..either 60 or it has a mind of its own. Is there a reset option or is it just done

These temperatures are generally associated
with default (factory) values. Programmable
thermostats have batteries/capacitors to retain
program memory during power outages.
Check batteries/power supply. Switch fan on at t-stat to verify control voltage. Program
t-stat and restore operation.
Please also check low voltage connections
for tightness (power off).

My scrren goes black on my laptop with full charge

Have you checked your screensaver settings? Or the Power-Saver Timeout options?

To do this, Right Click on the desktop and go to Properties, then go into the ScreenSaver tab. check your settings here, then go into the Power Management tab and check your Display power-off options.

This should fix you right up! :)

Power Button

Hi Monkeycdo,

There's a program that gives you the Windows XP shutdown window to turn the Axim off (
the main page is:

However, you can also adjust the power settings to turn the unit off after a certain time of inactivity.

If the power on is a problem, the power control settings have an option to "Turn on Device" if a program button is pressed. Check that option and in the future you can press the bottom buttons on the front and the unit should come on (you will have to close the program window that you requested when you pressed the button);

let me know how this works (grandgregojunk [at] or if you have any questions.

Good luck,

Using with a Mac

Looks like a power save program has hibernated your monitor. Look in Control panel settings to see if the power settings hibernate your monitor. Reset to never and this may fix your problem.

Drivers usually do not fail after 20 mins it is usually a software option set incorrectly.

Also, check the Bios program for correct settings or options.

I haven't had a Macintoch in a while but, this may give you some where to look for the solution

Good Luck

How can I get my computer to remain in standby mode overnight?

You are correct as regards ccApp, this is the norton antivirus apllication running in the background and stopping the process will stop the constant monitoring. Just double check the power options are as they should be in control panel and if you want you can turn off norton for a set period of time by right clicking the icon in the taskbar and dissable it, the options for a set time should then appear. You can also check in the bios F2 or Del on start up and in the advanced cmos settings look for the line 'Wake On Lan' and maybe dissable it if you are on a wired network, save settings and exit. Remember also if you have an optical mouse they are more sensitive to noise or vibration or movement and will wake your pc.
