Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
is this a phone?...........could you give me more details please on the trouble you are having
but sometimes it does turn on and works properly?
I have to ask that you be patient.....it could be any one of a dozen things sometimes ...........and what is right with it is a step to eliminate what is wrong with it ........I am not on there and it is that much more difficult for me or anyone for that matter to diagnose what the problem could be........... so the questions I ask of you will get us to target where we can resolve the issue you are having and together we can do it ..........I don't like not helping someone and leaving loose ends.................... I really hope you will reason with that and we can get this done
Thanks for your patience
is there anyway you could take a picture of what we are talking about and upload it here?......is it a multi-plug?
you are quite correct without protection for your electrical units the power surges will destroy circuit boards and make the units function erratically which sounds like what kind of issues you are having with a partially working device
I hate to say this to you Chris but it doesn't sound like any kind of a simple fix anymore........TV repair to replace some expensive parts or a new one for what maybe 200......I think it would be something you have to decide
good luck bud
