TV LG 42LB5800 T-con board failed?

It's possible you damaged the tcon. When you connected the ribbon connectors going from the tcon to panel boards you may have damaged the tracers, remove the connectors and see if those are bent or broke off. Another possibility is the panel was damaged when it was handled, you need to use static protection when handling the panel, if this wasn't done it could be damaged

Digilogic dvd/ vhs combo. Plays dvd but not vhs. Used to play both

Since the DVD's work that would mean the power supply is working ok as it's shared between the DVD and VHS. When the tape is put in it triggers a switch on the left side of the rail, that's been known for giving issues and not closing so it doesn't know a tape has been inserted, I'd start by testing that switch, sometimes the switch is bad others it just needs cleaning.

Trutech DV4TS05 -- does it have tracking speed control?

Most all VCR players have auto tracking. When cassette is in the machine it will do the tracking for you. Sometimes a manual adjustment may be need if the player can’t find the right track for itself. When this happens it is usually a problem with the tape. Manual tracking adjustments are made on the player itself and not on the remote control. If you can’t find anything on the player that reads ‘tracking’, find it in the user guide. Sometimes cleaning the heads will solve the problem especially if all the tapes have the same issue.

Telefunken CRT TV with smeared picture what could be the problems

On a CRT TV generally, smeared picture comes from the focus being out of adjustment, try adjusting it, the pot is part of the HV trippler, you may need to remove the back to get at the control, be careful around that area of the TV as there will be around 30,000 volts not far away from the adjustment pot.

Does anyone know the code to connect my Hitachi RC43141 remote to my Talk Talk remote.

You can't connect a remote control to another remote control, that's not how it works. All remotes that are specific to one device, only have that one code programmed in and only work that device. The exception is cable box and satellite box remotes which can be programmed to work for the box as well as the viewing television for switching on and off, volume and channel selection. https://www.google.com/search?q=talk+talk+remote&rlz=1C1QJDB_enCA643CA644&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Have a read of this https://www.fixya.com/support/r29872378-universal_remotes_no_facsimile_remote ..

Sony Lcd on and off and goes back on again repeat same same edited for truth. KLV-32BX350/1

Probable damage to the main board caused by lightening/storm activity. It is possibly not ever going to be a successful repair. Being LCD it is older technology and spares will be few and far between, not to mention expensive.

What is the second step of a fire risk assessment

The 2005 Regulatory Safety (Fire Safety) Order provides that if a property is not owned or managed by a person, they have a legal responsibility for protecting people who live or work in the area from the risk of fire. This includes regularly reviewing and conducting an assessment of fire risk to assist in fire prevention, risk reduction and fire prevention. The Fire Safety Order says that the responsible person must complete - or have a fire safety expert perform - an extensive fire risk assessment. The Health and Safety Executive and Gov.UK describe the 5 steps that are required for a fire safety assessment. Step 1: Identify the fire hazards This involves first identifying any hazards that could cause a fire. You can start fires when heat comes in contact with fuel or oxygen. So, you must thoroughly think about how and where a fire could start in your home. A source of ignition could be electrical equipment like heaters or computers. Anything that is wrapped around them, including textiles, could make a fire even more intense. Step 2: Identify people at-risk There is risk for everyone in your home when there is an emergency. It is worth considering whether certain individuals are more at risk. This could be because they use particularly dangerous materials or equipment, work in isolated areas, work at nights, or are not familiar the property (such a customer or guest). A fire can also make it more dangerous for children, the elderly, or the disabled. Step 3: Evaluate and remove or reduce risk Once you've completed the first and second steps, it is time to carefully evaluate the results. The next step is to consider the best ways to significantly reduce or eliminate fire risks that you have identified. This includes taking safety precautions. Step 4: Record, plan and train If you have five or more employees in your business, or have a licensed license, you must keep a copy of your fire-risk assessment. This document will detail all fire hazards, and the steps taken to reduce them. Then, you need to make clear, complete plans on what to do in the event of an emergency, including how to escape. Step 5: Review Your fire risk assessment must be reviewed periodically. Also, you should review your fire risk assessment and fire evacuation plan regularly, noting any significant changes and informing or retraining staff as necessary. I hope you will be satified with my brief answer. Please ask any related questions.

What would be causing my LG TV to be showing a green coloured screen when it is turned on ?

There might be either a cable that is loose or not connected properly or there might be a problem with your TV's hardware. I would try to first re set the TV by unplugging it and everything else that is connected to the TV for about 1 minute and also press and hold the power button for 30 seconds too and wait a couple of minutes to plug the TV and everything back in.

Toshiba CRT TV has no sound at all.

The inbuild speakers are faulty or the the supply voltage is missing to the audio amplifiers or the audio IC is no longer work anymore or the capacitors inside of the TV are now bad. You could buy another CRT TV or get the one that has no sound repaired from someone that fixes TVs.

I have a black picture, but have sound. Vizio VW26L HDTV 10F

The back light on the Vizio VW26L HDTV10F may have failed on the TV. In the past year, I've had one monitor and one TV (both over 10 years old) fail with the same black screen with clear audio. The way I confirmed that the problem was the back light involved lighting the screen at an angle (in a dim room). For the monitor, an overhead recessed light let me see a "ghost" image of the open program. For the TV, I used a flashlight held to the side. Then I was again able to see the dim image on the screen. With the TV, I was able to continue using the TV for another few weeks. I had to unplug the set and wait for several minutes. Then, after restoring power, when I turned on the TV using the physical power button, the back lighting would come back on. However, after a few weeks, this method stopped working. (The monitor back light did not respond to a similar removal of power.) The copyright date for the manual is 2007. I believe the best option is to replace the TV. It isn't worth fixing the back light on a small screen that is this old. I wish I had better news for you. Cindy Wells (My old screens both had compact fluorescent back lighting. The replacements use LED back lights. The power usage for the electronics thus is considerably better with the replacements.)

Is there a solution to update my LG 55G2-UG HDMI port to comply with an HDCP error between my tv and my Sony Receiver STR-DH590?

HDCP 2.2 wasn't released until 2014. The LG 55G2 was released in 2012. There's no way to upgrade the TV, unless you replace it. Using a splitter probably wouldn't help. The device sending the HDCP check needs every part of the HDMI cable daisy-chain system to send back a "Yes I understand" message in 20ms. Since a receiver isn't usually sending copy-protected video, this message is coming from one of the devices. Reset the resolution for that device to 1080p. Based on your description of the problem, you need to change the video output on the cable box. This depends on the cable box model and the guide it uses. However, either turn off the receiver with the cable box and TV left on. Alternatively, connect the cable box to the TV directly. For some, you then press Menu (for the cable box) twice to get to general settings. Then enter the audio/video section and look for the video output formats. See https://www.spectrum.net/support/tv/hdtv-picture-formats for some of the reset steps. In some cases, you may need to use a different video output to the TV to get a picture, instead of the error message, to access the menu at all. On my set-top box, I sometimes connect the RF output to the RF on the TV when the set-top box sends a "out of range" signal. I set the TV to channel 3 (in my case) and then reset the video format. Other times, I just get the blank screen but the menu still works to reset the output format. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
