When I went to power it on this morning, it wouldn't turn on. I tried pressed the manual power button on the tv, in case it was the remote - still nothing.

I turned my tv (an 42" LG 1080i, if I remember correctly off the top of my head) on Monday and the picture is like a really over exposed photo. The on screen guide is is washed out in color but really bright and the letters etc. are blown out and almost blurry. I have tried:Unplugging all connections from the TV and cable box, including power cables, and then reconnecting them.Fiddling with the picture controls in the tv menu, including the reset picture function.The tv is close to ten years old and has been in heavy use for that whole time.

Hi Pearl, my name is***** have a Samsung PS50C7HDX/XEU 55 inch plasma TV set. While watching a program the TV set suddently turned itself off few days ago. Now when I try to turn it on the fallowing happens:JA: Just to clarify, what's the plasma television's exact make and model?Customer: As soon as I plug the mains voltage cable the TV set tries to turn on, the standby light on the front bottom bezel goes blue and starts flashing, couple of seconds later a buzzing noise can be heard as if something would be charging up inside, couple of seconds later I can hear the Relay inside or Relays clicking and then shortly afterwards they click again and the TV set switches itself off. This repeats itself by itself.JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?Customer: Not much other then taking the back cover off (while the power cable is disconnected of course) and taking most of the dust away with a vacuum cleaner. Then I looked for bulging capacitors. None are bulging or popped. They are all loking like new and most of them are Nippon Chemicon, some are Samwha brand.JA: The TV expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?Customer: No, that would be it.JA: OK. Got it.

Our church has an Optoma TW631-3d wxga progector. I am the primary user (Sunday Morning PowerPoint slides for hymns) and the projector was working just fine when I put it away. Yesterday, I set it up as usual, pluged it in, blue power light blinking, pushed the ON button, got a steady power blue light but the lamp did not power up. Following the trouble shooting I unplugged everything and tried again. Still the lamped did not come on. Thinking the bulb must be out I put in a new bulb, same results. Asking around I found out that someone else used the projector after I did. After reading the manual again and trying a variety of start up sequences, incuding different input devices and cables I suspect the last user did not follow proper shut down procedure and disconnected the power cable while the projector was still in cool down mode and the projector thinks it is still in that mode. Is there away to reset the projectot to default normal start up mode?
