Trying to repair a Samsung plasma TV I scored cheaply Has sound and changes channels but there's no picture, no menus or anything. Had a look and can't see any capacitors with their tops bulging out, tested the fuses, looked for burn marks/cracked solder joints Nothing. I'm not sure what to look for next.. I have mechanical electrical background knowledge so I can use a multimeter, i just don't know how and what to test on a TV. Anyone have any tips? Model is PS50C550GIF, Samsung plasma Pic unrelated.

/diy/nosaurs, last time we had one of these it was a total success. So, once again, it's engineering brainteaser time! Challenge: We have a locked door. Let's come up with a way to unlock it without physically touching it. Let's assume that the lock is a pin-tumbler lock and the latch is a standard type door latch. It doesn't have to be practical but it can't violate the laws of physics.

Sup /diy/nasty warriors, I figured you guys were a pragmatic bunch, and was wondering if you guys can help me. One of the many aspects of my job (of being a low level grunt laborer) is cleaning the molding/trim/doors/frames/cabinets/woodwork of newly constructed houses. My current method is a 10% vinegar solution, a glass towel, and going on my hands and knees getting every last inch of wood in the house. As you can imagine, it leaves a lot to be expected. I've tried a shop vac with extend brush attachment, but that leaves a thin layer of dust behind. I've tried both a duster and steam mop, but they don't take care of caked-on drywall dust or reach into the corners very well (and the steam mop was awkward as hell to try and maintain a usable angle with). Any ideas on how to make my job a little bit easier?

I'm working on a project, and need advice. I want to make a bow out of ski's. As in, tool, the bow. I will post pics in a moment. Here is the design document, pic related. I have done some research, and seen people make two types. The one on the left is here , although the creator only clamped the two piece together, rather than full on bolting as I want to do. The second type is designed to be more take down friendly, Now, I've two questions. Firstly, I assume these are made of fiber glass. What should I do about this? All I plan on doing is a straight cut across it, and drilling holes in the lower area. Would a mask, goggle, a smock, gloves, and an area outside be suitable for this operation?

hey /diy/, this is just some really conceptual shit but ive been really interested in how things work lately. anyway recently i was really wondering how sound was first recorded, and found out about Edisons famous wax cylinders that could play back sound a limited number of times before turning to shit. basically you get a horn shaped device that would take sound and concentrate it onto a needle, which vibrates the wax and creates grooves etc. so, i wanted to recreate this experiment with my brothers to see if we can record sound just as it was first invented in the late 1800s and see if we can actually pull of playing it back. my question is, do you think using soap material or melted down candle wax would be a better, more solid material for etching sound waves?

hey /diy/ Since I don't know of a better place for this, what are your money-making schemes? >be collegefag >concerts, shows all the time >get pre-sale access to tickets >max out at 85% regular price (6 per person) >buy up backout tickets at 50% price >mark up 10% each week to catch that last minute demand Still not selling at prices higher than retail so I wouldn't call it scalping.

/diy/'s opinion on living in a truck camper? I've been really considering converting to a "off the grid" kinda life. No more huge bills like rent and electricity. Have a job if you still want to, or even go no job and make money other ways. I've read into a few different off-grid life styles and how to do it. Main way to go it seems. Good pick up truck. From what i've heard the best camper to get is a pop up one. Supposedly easier to maintain and less weight on your truck. Make sure you get one that has a shower/bathroom. Also built in fridge with bed. Those two normally are in all. The reason why Truck/Truckcamper are best for living off the grid is because of the fact is, let's say your engine fails or something that's just your truck. See about getting a new one, but you'll still get to keep your "home." Or what if your Camper gets badly damaged or you need to upgrade, that's just the camper not your vehicle part also. It's a easier and more safe way to go about it. Cause you'll still have one or the other. Then there's the money issue. Alot of them say if you don't really plan on traveling a lot, get a part time job, easiest way. Since you can get a full or part time, Save up til you're safe enough to move on to another place. This is said to be the more typical plan A. Then there's plan B, Which is really the best one is metal detecting. From what's been said and shown you can make a lot of easy money. Some people who do it everyday to make money while living this way, they've made between 50-200 a day. So whatever you get you can go probably not even 15 miles and find a pawn shop or something to sell the stuff you find. Best thing too, Campers are way easier to get away with "living" in a parking lot. Cause if you got to a place with a trailer rv, there's twice as long

Dakota 7" Portable TV HELP

22 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1357105854983.gif]
Guys, I need some help, I've searched everywhere. I bought a Dakota 7'' Portable TV from a thrift store, brand new, never opened, I'm trying to use it as an external monitor for my DSLR. The TV accepts a 3.5'' AV input, but when I plug the cable in, I get a NO SYNC screen. I run a mini-usb to RCA from the camera, use two couplers, and connect that to an RCA to 3.5" into the TV, any help or software updates out there?

Hey /diy/, can you identify this part for me? It's from the pipes in the sink's plumbing I'm told, and it's cracked, so I need to buy new ones.

My guitar stopped producing sound trough the amp, so I took it apart and the only thing afoot is in the image, what can I do? How do I fix it? Help is much obliged. I'm pretty sure I have to tinker the loose wire to a metal part, but I dunno which and I don't wanna make a short circuit and blow my guitar and amp to hell. Thanks in advance.

Any tips on building cigar box guitars? I'm curious about actually making them sound good without being twangy pieces of shit.

hey /diy/, i've been trying to repair my sennheiser px 100-iii's by using this guy's video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhnXUQRQ4u4 I'm getting sound, but it's only outputting a part of the music (I'm sure it's not because only one channel is being played, it sounds like only half, hard to explain. think of your headphones plugged only halfway into your media player device. it's not because mono to stereo or anything) and the microphone/play/pause isn't werking either nothing is werking first time soldering btw. am i a failure??

Circuitry Questions

So I've got a little project I'm working on but I was having a little bit of a tough time understanding how to get a square wave from my 555 timer that has an equal time for high and low voltages. Looking at the formula it gives you on the datasheet, would I want to put it in astable mode. So the formula for high would be .693(RA + RB)C and for low .693(RB)C. So, if I just leave out the RA shouldn't the two times be equal or would I encounter problems by doing that? Here's the PDF: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm555.pdf I figure I'll use this thread as a general questions one as I expect to have more as I work on this further. (I'm really rusty with circuit analysis)
