Hi i have a wharfedale power cube 8. it cut out on me a couple of months back and didnt know why, when i tryed to turn it on it made a noise like it was trying to start but no light or anything come on. So i left it and im trying to get it working again, i opened it up to have a look whats wrong i found that both of the fuses were burnt out, so i replaced them. I brought everything correct and put the fuses in correctly it come on start working, soon as i connect a input device it just burnt out the fuses again i must have used about 10 now. Can you help me please. is the a short somwhere?

Hi my tv will not switch on after power cut it's a wharfedale l22t11w-a can anyone help

Check for power at the wall outlet, check for a manual switch/circuit breaker/fuse on the back. Check the battery in the remote, is it good.
The internal switchmode power supply usually has a power disconnect fuse, it may have operated. Internal components are difficult to service unless your a trained tech with the correct tools to disassemble the TV. Suggest you take the TV to a repair shop.

Why does the stator burn out after 8 months riding?

Is this a one-time failure? It may be a bad unit.

If your generator/alternator keeps burning out the stator coils, it seems that they are being overloaded. Since it occurs over an 8-month period, the load isn't like a short in the wiring, which would cause a fuse to blow. This sounds like a constant heavier than normal load since it takes 8 months to fail.
The first thing I would suspect would be the battery. If it had a shorted cell, it would draw more current trying to charge. If this was the case, you'd notice slow cranking, etc.
(It's also the easiest to eliminate as a problem)
Next thing I'd look at would be the voltage regulator.
Something is demanding more power than it should to make the alternator to fail so soon.

My electric went off yesterday and when it went back on my tv wouldnt turn on it was working fine before the power cut we have changed the fuse but still nothing is there anyway i can reset it to make it...

you said you changed the fuse. (inside the tv)double check to see if its blown agian if not. keep it unplugged for about 20 minutes to reset the surge protector onboard . if you have done all that the fuse didnt protect your tv from the surge and it gone. IF ITS CONNECTED TO A SURGE PROTECTOR unplug it from that and plug directly into the wall TRY THAT FIRST let me know if this works.

Wharfedale ICS182 Car stereo I was wondering whether u can help me fix my car stereo. I turned ignition off, after a couple of hours went back, turned my car on. Although the radio worked without...

It's broken. I have a couple on my bench with this fault and they're not worth fixing when you can pick up replacements on Ebay for 30 quid.

NOTE: This is a really common failure mode. You're just unlucky it happened outside the warranty.
