    Tried all of you suggestions.. Still the same result. Did notice a black outline like the menu box in the lower center of the picture when in the aeriel mode though but the problem was the same with all inputs used.
    Email is [email protected] Thanks

    Problem started about a month ago and am just getting around to it ... unit has been off .

    I'm thinking it could be the video board or maybe the reciever board itself?

Sounds like the TV can't handle the resolution that is being supplied or it is set for wrong resolution.

Problem started with a white screen, now It just remains black, installed my old monitor, works fine, put the KDS back in line, no picture, just black tried on off on the monitor and on the computer,...

jimmoser45, Could be trash! Could be a Trade-in on a new monitor! Try to follow me on this will-ya!!! You take your K226WDB to store and maybe get $10 knocked off the new one? Anyhow, you walk out with new LCD display and 1, poss 2yrs warranty. But the sales guy who just toted your K226 back to the "bench tech" in the back room and says to his 'tech' "Hey, here's one more! You fix it,,, give it to your 8yr old!" The tech replys. "Hey... Thanks. I'll look it over after break." Well later that day the tech opens up you're K226 looks at some stuff inside and then proceeds to make a repair that might bring new life back to this monitor. Maybe an hour later the tech hooks up the K226 to a pc and pushes the "ON" button of the monitor and with $5 in new parts,and a little LUCK an 8 yr old will have an LCD monitor with a nice, bright, crisp text and graphics being displayed on your old unit!!! Check out youtube first for video clips on "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" to help you make a decision on what steps you might take to keep your K226 unit out of an 8yr old's bedroom!! 12fixlouie

On model # FN250a, piston won't return after releasing trigger; have just overhauled the unit with a Porter-Cable kit.

Usually only two areas to check to solve this problem. Remove head, then pull piston and look for cuts or pieces missing form lower bumper (however your kit may have included a new bumper). Next, remove the cylinder and look at cylinder check seal (part # 886119 looks like black rubberband) should be installed over the row of pinholes. If too loose it will fall to bottom of cylinder. Install cylinder plastic ring onto cylinder first, then checkseal then install cylinder into body. If your checkseal is torn, you may use several orings that fits snuggly in the space allowed on cylinder over pinholes. I use silicone lube sold at Lowes in the plumbing department (Danco brand) on all or the orings. I also use a magnifyer lens to see fine scratches in the head where orings contact. Fine scratches will cause leaks and cut your new orings. Remove scratches with fine sandpaper (300-400 grit) Good luck on your repair and email if you have other question.

Try turning it on with the shift key down. This gives a safe boot. If it's going to turn on at all, it will turn on then. Also, boot it with Disc Warrior or Tech Tools and run some tests to see what is going on. I hope you find all is well, and that the repairs are just minor. Good luck.

If your video looks good on a monitor then more then likely your ES3012-5MLZ30PW is good....I would try taking the video from that camera to a different input on the recoding device to see if the problem follows....If you don’t have a different input try a different camera and record for 5 min and then playback to see if dose the same thing.....You can also take the video feed from the ES3012-5MLZ30PW to a different recorder and see if the problem follows....good luck and let me know if this can always call Pelco at 1-800-289-9100 they do their tech support 24/7 365.....they really set the standard in tech support....
