  2. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have a Samsung 8 Series UN50TU8200FXZA Television that I bought a year ago. We turned it off the other night and when we went to turn the tv on in the morning the tv does not start. The tv comes on for a few seconds the backlight comes on dim, then turns bright, and then the tv power cycles...
  3. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    My projector, after 7 years and many thousands of hours of use, has developed a problem with the red LCD and there is now a vertical band of 8 pixels that are stuck in the off state. It was something that came and went over the last few months, but now it is just stuck like this all the time...
  4. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    First I want to say I'm new to the forum and if this post is in the wrong place then I apologise in advance. The first problem I had with the tv is that one morning when turned it on there was no picture and the backlight appeared to be off as well as having a red flashing light. I tried the...
  5. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hey folks, I recently purchased a new AVR and then 2 days later my Spherex Xbox 5.1-in-a-box subwoofer died. I went out and bought a used a Energy ES-12 but I didn't realise until I got home that it had a bit of a nasty hum even when there's no input connected (audible from my seating position...

    I have this Marantz SR6006 that works very well as far as making sound out of speakers is concerned. However, it developed a problem that it switches the sound output from speaker to headphone outlet on its own for no obvious reason. I had to plug in and out the headphone a couple of times to...

    Hello I'm new here and new to trying to fix amplifiers as a hobby. Have some knowledge of electricity so I'm safe in that respect. I am currently going through the mosfets on the XR3801 due to the "soft start" fuse kept blowing the fuse... Come across a 'j162' which is making the ohms reading...

    I have had an Onkyo M508 amp for many, many years. I recently (and guiltily) pulled it out of storage where it had been sitting for the last 20 or so years and discovered it has a few issues, as follows: The direct RCA inputs have a short, but when wiggled a bit they will allow signal to pass...

    Hey folks, my PMA-2000R amp is not working anymore. So it has had some issues before where the input selector goes crazy while playing music, and it switches between all the inputs on its own until I turn the input selector. And then yesterday, the receiver won't output sound anymore. Before I...

    Hi, I've got MA RSW12 sub that is not working and curious if anyone dealt with the same issue perhaps and can guide me on how to repair it. I am not a pro electronics repair guy but very handy with a soldering iron and have some basic tools to test things and replace components. History: I...

    Hello all, I purchased my new TX-NR1000 ~14 years ago and it worked very well for a number of years. A volume control delay issue was sort of repaired by an authorized dealer ~8 years ago but still there. Over the past ~2-3 years a number of issues have developed: Main-B outputs have stopped...

  13. Home Theater In A Box
    I have been struggling to try to fix my LG HT/Blu-ray device. The problem seems to have started after a lightning storm. Now, whenever the player is turned on, it goes through this loading process and then shuts itself down automatically right after finishing. The display on the device shows a...

    I'm using an old Yamaha HTR-5560 with two powered speakers as a stereo pair connected to the main L & R pre-outs. When connected this way, the left channel is giving a distorted signal. I'm convinced this is the L pre-out itself and not a speaker or cable issue: I've troubleshooted this by...
  15. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Good Morning, I have an Inuke 6000 (no dsp, older version) that no longer powers up. The setup was 2 Inuke 6000 amplifiers that sat on top on one another with a 3/4" air gap between. The amps never saw more than 700w per channel, and even that wattage draw was rare. Both amps had the noctua fan...
  16. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi all, I've been having issues with my Benq w1070. It's 5 years old now, so probably time to get something new, but I thought i'd try my hand at some home repair. I think I may be in over my head. The initial problem was, what I thought, a color wheel issue. I took it apart to try and see what...
  17. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have an Epson Home Cinema 3100 that has worked great for around 2 years now. The other day when I tried to turn it on an error appeared saying there is a problem with the auto iris and to contact my local Epson repair shop. I took the projector apart thinking the auto iris was mechanical and...

    After owning a trouble-free 3311 for many years, I upgraded last May to an X3500H. I recently noticed that the X3500H's subwoofer (part of an Energy Take Classic 5.1 set) was not going into standby and that movies weren't packing quite the audio punch that they used to. To be honest, it could...
  19. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I bought a Aiptek T10 Pocket Cinema in Jan 2010. I subsequently sold it later that year but it was returned within a few days as faulty. It's a while back but it left my hands working and came back broken so somewhere in transportation it broke. I would like to get it working because I am now...
  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi everyone, I own a BenQ W1200 projector, sticker dated 2011 but I believe I bought it in 2013. It traveled around with me, from Singapore, to Europe, Chicago, and now back to Paris. The projector had stayed in its box for like 3 years (storage, and then I just didn't have the right living...
