TIF 7610 IR thermometer display upside down and only partially visible. Is this a power issue?

After taking it apart I had to solder a battery wire back to the circuit board.

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

SOURCE: display not working, mostly white screen,

Important disclaimer ... I am not a technical expert. But, I do have this phone. And, I have this same problem. My first thought was that the phone got wet but I now think it is a software problem. Either way, I'm just trying to stretch out the phone use until my contract is up so I don't have to pay for a replacement. Here is what works temporarily for me ... take out the battery for a minute or so, when turning the phone on, hold the power button for about a minute. This seems to reset the phone. Sometimes I need to repeat 3 or 4 times for it to work. The fix only works long enough to retrieve text messages and send a few and check missed calls. Next time I go to use it, I have to do it again. Frustrating but I think I can make due for 2 more months.

SOURCE: Which Replacement Power Board for LNT4665F Samsung LCD TV?

It would be a lot cheaper if you just replace the two caps that have gone bad. Just get a cheap solder pencil from the store and about an inch of solder and you are in business.
The Power Supply Board is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.

Thaks for using FIXYA, BIG IRISH.

SOURCE: Wires came loose of control unit from circuit

Rotate the iTrip AutoPilot FM Transmitter controller so that its buttons are facing up and its data cable is on the left side. The data cable wires attach to a row of contact points along the left side of the circuit board as follows (from top to bottom):

1 = Purple
2 = White
3 = Blue
4 = Red
5 = Black
6 = Brown
7 = Green
8 = Yellow
9 = <unused>

My vizio E60-C3 television powers on and I get clear picture and sound but then the TV powers off by itself. I have tried power cycling both the TV and the remote and that has not solved the issue. Any...

These are not easy to solve. The issue is most likely due to something getting too hot. The problem is telling what is getting too hot. You have to take the unit apart and power it on Then you can wait for it to shut off and you unplug it and feel for heat or use a laser IR thermometer to see what the part is You can also use a freeze spray on the part to see if it works after you cool it off Then you either replace that part as a component or you replace the whole board.

Craftsman belt drive garage door opener intermittent

My opener was flaky- intermittently going on and off. I could bang it and it would do the same thing so this suggested a loose connection somewhere. This wasn't a unit with the battery backup.

Safety note- don't take apart unless you first unplug the entire unit!!! I took it apart and there were two circuit boards- a logic board and a power supply board (latter was smaller of the two). I took out the power supply board and examined the solder joints on the back. I found one that was cracked (this soldered a connector pin), and another that looked like it wasn't good (not shiny). I resoldered and this fixed the problem.

Another time my wall control acted up (this has the IR sensor and buttons). There is not much room around the screws on the backside for connecting the wires. One of the wires was a little long and shorting out to a nearby component.

Hope this helps someone with similar problems.

Keeps saying turn off message with new batteries

Ours had the same issue. I took the Vtech Kidijamz apart. The power button has its own little board. I unscrewed that. It connects to the next board via two wires. I reflowed the solder for all the connections for those two wires (four solder points total). Issue fixed. FYI: reflowing solder just means heating each solder point (with a soldering iron) until the solder gets soft and then removing the iron to let the solder cool and thus harden.

No temperature display on my GE PRofile PFS22SBS!

Is it an electronic controller, or just a battery powered thermometer?

Casio fx-991es plus upside down display

I would take it apart and see if they installed the display upside down. I wouldn't think the wires would be long enough to do this, but maybe that is the way it is laid out.

Good luck.

Ambient temperature is not within the allowed operating range (10 - 40 °C or 50 - 104 °F).
Allow the thermometer to remain for 30 minutes in a room where the temperature is
between 10 and 40 °C or 50 and 104 °F.

Here is a link to the manual if you should need it:,%20F,%20E,%20P.pdf

I opened my thermometer to change the battery and the two red wires detached. Where do I reconnect them [solder them].

The two red wires more than likely go to the speaker on the back
cover. There is usually a small dab of solder where the wires go.
Re solder the two wires to the speaker and don't worry about which
wire go to witch dab of solder. The speaker is not polarity sensitive.

My 360 just wont start and it worked the other night i have tried everything except taking it apart and the brick seems to be fine as it still light up but just no power is going to the console

his I have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heat-gun fix if you don't have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definitely need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.

if you want to attempt this yourself i have some free guides available and is relatively easy to do, you would need a few tools including heatgun. We use something called an ir oven which re-heats the solder and in turn re-seats it but the heatgun can be just as good sometimes.

hope that helps in some way

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing

Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

Display is partially visable

HI Badri,
It seems display problem of your phone. And yes you have to change it. Visit any nearby technician, C-168 display needs to be solder with skill and special tools too.


Hori. and vertical lines on display are also symptoms of faulty LCD. You have to change it.
