Re: TV Motherboard White Component Sparks when TV Turned On

1. No. It is an LED.
2. No, you will short-circuit an electric component which might be causing even more damage.

Questions:
- Has this TV ever worked?
- What happened just before it stopped working?
- How old is it, do you have any warranty left
- Does it not react at all?

Re: Back in the game

Thank you.

At the moment I have only 2 puny laptops and a tablet online, no decent workhorses. Maybe in due time I'll find time/space/budget to run some hardware.

Re: Seritech LIL1429 motherboard

After some clever deduction, the board is also sold as Olystar LIL1429, this might be a match. So I have to rename the Seritech page to MLE/Micro Leader Enterprises and put both Olystar/Seritech between brackets as they are simple resellers/relabelers. Nice...

Talk in 1 protocol or else (HP networked MFP)

For weeks on and off I had trouble reaching the scanner on my M281fdw. Every reboot it seems to get lost on the laptop. Even the HP Print and Scan Doctor didn't seem to help, reinstalling software got me nowhere. Until... I realised whenever that thing ran I saw the device 2 times, once with an IPv6...

Re: Motherboard doesn't recognize the CMOS Battery (I guess)

LiveCD that you installed by accident? Or what exactly happened? This info may be useful to others.
