Thanks... I brought it in to the repair shop for an estimate... I'll post
back the diagnostics to see what you guys think :)

Hi everybody,

my tv fades to black (and back to the image then black forever)... Anyone
has seen this? Anyone with a service manual for this model? Doing a search
on the net only comes up with remotes for sale...

Thanks!

Marc


Fade to black is almost always a heater problem, bad solder. Don't go
inside if you don't know what to look for. It isn't rocket science,
but it requires a particular skillset and knowledgebase.

I wonder why so many lamps are rated 60W.

I have a lot of 100W and 150W bulbs in areas where I work.

I mean, why should a mostly-metalic goosneck desk lamp say 60W?

What if I put an 88-W-arated 100-W-emulating bulb in it?

I have been trained by the Navy and the Air Force in micro soldering
techniques and I agree, for most through the hole type jobs a plain old
solder sucker and a decent iron of the correct wattage is more than
sufficent. IF used by a person with some training and skill.

Nonsense. They sell crap. I don't recommend this at *all*.
These things are *horrible*. If you really must go here "solder-
wick" is much easier to use. It's basically a thin braid with
some flux. The wicking action of the braid sucks the solder out
of the holes.

To the contrary, they are quite well suited to some applications. I
wouldn't recommend them for unsoldering a 00 lug nor for a 144 pin QFP
but for "ordinary" through-hole components they work quite well if
employed with minimal dexterity. Much less component heating and a
cleaner result than with copper braid.

Your etymology is also questionable.

The only thing better than "solder-wick" is a professional
desoldering station, complete with a technician who knows how to
use it. Forget the crap desoldering widgets from RadioShaft!
They' don't even have decent irons. Yeow!

A professional setup (e.g., a nice Pace station) is certainly preferable
(if orders of magnitude more expensive) but the RS solder suckers that
you malign do a much nicer job than braid in their proper domain.

Yes...

That has already been hashed, and rehashed; over and over again.

The third head's job is to achieve perfect still picture.
As a sidenote: I also own a Panasonic NV-J11. The only problem is that it's
too noisy with cable TV, while it performs beuatifully with an ordinary
antenna. Have you the same problem?

We have something like that, only it's for a regular compact cassette.
It's a high speed dupe, that can dupe at double or more speed. But
you're probably better off getting a service to do it.

But nowadays, almost everyone has converted to CDs. You can get those
little CDs that take up a lot less room, and cost very little to duplicate.

It is possible for a dirty head to record ok but playback very poorly i.e.
Below the video mute level "Panasonic blue screen" That is because on record
the signal is a relatively high applied current generating a large magnetic
field but on playback only a very small signal is picked up from the tape.
Also remember that this applies to all the heads on the tape path so don't
forget to clean the control head as well as the video heads. This is the one
on the bottom of the last head assembly before the pinch roller.
Hope this helps John.

That's a step in the right direction.

thanks for your reply; yes, I cleaned it with one of those cleaning tapes
for a minute or so.
What I don't understand is: if it was dirty head, then the thing wouldn't
record properly either, would it? The same head is used to do writing, as it
is to do reading. Yet, the recorded tape is played back perfectly OK on my
other video... The thing seems to have no problems writing, but it failes
when it comes to playing the tape back ( - any tape: its own recording,
rented tapes, etc), it just failes...
Seems to me that dirty heads couldn't explain that kind of fault - or am I
wrong?


That silver drum isn't the head. It's the carrier for several heads.
Some machines have separate record and playback heads. You may be
lucky.

You didn't address the issue. Why does labor produce an item of
capital? Is it so they can use it or so they can sell it? Who buys
it?
---------------------------
Capital is imaginary because it is the spending of as yet unworked
available labor which is extra over that needed for common subsistence
at the current level.

This is nonsense. The economic value of a tool that amplifies
productivity 1000 times is imaginary?
-----------
Absolute contrived pseudo-incredible doctrinaire nonsense. The ONLY
thing that produces anything is labor, capital is no "amplifier" of
anything, it has nothing to amplify WITH, no "power supply".

That is a truly asinine statement.
---------------------

No, YOU'RE simply asinine.


Quote:
Try building a bird house with
your
hands alone, then try it with a hammer and saw, and tell me that

-----------------------------

I didn't say Just MY labor, you idiot, I said labor!
Lots of people's:
The miner, the tool maker, the truck manufacturer, the steel maker,
the lumberjack, the milling crew, the delivery truck drivers, etc.
ALL of what we get is the product of nothing but LABOR!!!


Quote:
An item of capital is the
result of labor, but the question is *whose* labor?
-----------
The rich person who stole it from the laborer who produced it?
Nope, possession of lost or stolen property is a crime!


It is not imaginary to the guy who spent 5 years building it,
----------
You mean waiting for it to be built, and standing around while
someone else did the actual work?


nor to the guy who
designed it on a blackboard.
---------
He worked. Is it his, or his "owners"??

It is his if he pays the costs of production.
-------------------------

If he does it with wealth he steals from us all! He did NOTHING!


Quote:
It is his until he
decides to trade it for cash. The producers of tools don't produce
tools so they can use them, they produce tools for exchange. The only
reason a factory is produced is because SOMEONE is paying an exchange
value for it to the producers that they found acceptable. Why is this
so hard for you to grasp? Why do you want the producer of the factory
not to be paid?
------------------------

You're an idiot. We all need factories, what we do NOT need is anyone
rich to OWN them!!


Quote:
It is certainly not imaginary to the
folks who find themselves able to produce above subsistence solely
because someone else invested in this imaginary critter.
-----------
Stuff is not "capital", because the stuff used to attempt a new
endeavor that won't produce yet is building material and tools,
sure, but without the labor added these materiale are merely a
pile of stuff.

But it is a pile of stuff with potentially huge value. The stuff is so
valuable that it is in fact your gripe that everyone should be able to
use the stuff whether they invested in its creation or not.
---------------------------------

Those things that are a result of all previous building as a species by
our dead relatives MUST be divided fairly! They were often not produced
fairly or equitably, but we all have enough dead relatives
who were part of any faction involved to justify dividing them equally
and owning everything but our homes collectively as a People. And the
planet is automatically ours as a Species.


Quote:
And the labor that made THEM is ALSO labor being
put to that new endeavor.

Uhh, no. The builder of the boat is not the fisherman. The builder of
the boat only wants the exchange value of his boat, he doesn't want to
fish. If he did, he would not accept an exchange offer for his boat
and would use it to fish himself. Once the builder has exchanged, he
can't claim a portion of the fisherman's take. The builder may choose
to lease the boat under these terms, but then he has not been paid for
it as an item of capital. He can't have it both ways.
------------------------------------

None of that is necessary. The People own all boats, the fisherman and
the boat builder work for the People. No one needs to lease anything,
he gets his commission to use Public Property for the benefit of the
Public, and so he can do his chosen work and earn his food so he doesn't
starve. Can he eat nothing but fish? Who wants to for long?


Quote:
So any new endeavor will be some already
worked labor and a lot of as yet unworked labor at its inception.
And it is NOTHING ELSE!! And the worked labor is not very old,
often no more than a couple DAYS prior, as the materiale is
delivered concurrently.

The already worked labor has been paid for. The pay was the only
reason they showed up to work. If they paid the costs of production
themselves, they would own the endeavor, but if they elected to
exchange their labor for a wage and have someone else pay startup, the
person who paid owns the endeavor.
----------------------------------

The People own all of it anyway, because it is the People who decide
to defend property and under what conditions of ownership. The
ownership of the means of production belongs to Everyone, because
otherwise they can be blackmailed for their very life, and into any
slavery the blackmailer chooses, just to eat! This is how the serfs
were captured into feudalistic durance vile! The rich sent bully-boys
to burn the tribes out and claimed the land and then they prevented
them using the land unless they agreed to their slavery. The rich
"owned" the "means of production". That is the danger!!


Quote:
Further, it isn't the spending of 'as yet unworked available labor'.
If that were the case, there would be no need for start up capital.
-------------------
The "start up capital" is the wage to pay for the unworked and worked
labor, as it is needed, but before it produces a social good. So it
is nothing but labor. All any society must do is authorize it, namely,
agree to feed and pay those workers while they build up that new
endeavor which is not yet producing a social good, and however the
society can decide to allocate that labor IS SUFFICIENT!

Sufficient according to who?
-------------

The People.


Quote:
I don't see you building the factory,
-------------

I don't see the rich doing ANYTHING.


Quote:

If I work hard at engineering and the People like it, then they'll
give me a fair share.


Quote:
What is wrong with labor
contracting to build something without you putting your nose in it?
--------------

It is subject to fraud and theft by YOU shit who would blackmail
them into an unfair trade using their poverty. UNFAIR! The People
must STOP it!


Quote:
The party who pays the costs of construction, including the exchange
value of raw materials and labor, owns the endeavor.
--------------

Not if they stole the wealth they used!! AND they DID!!


Quote:
Any other arrangement is looting.
-------------

No, that's what the rich had their bully-boys did to start feudalism.
What we do to end it is NOT looting!


Quote:
If 'society' decides to foot the bill for a
factory, and everyone pays for startup, then 'society' owns the
endeavor.
---------------------

Yup.


Quote:
That has absolutely no bearing on a situation in which some
guy decides to foot the bill, then 'society' decides to free ride on
his investment and loot ownership from him.
-----------------------

Nope, they reclaim their rightful ownership from he who usurped it!!
The rich got rich by theft. NO one can obtain that much money in a
lifetime by earning a fair wage, and ALL OTHER means of obtaining
money ARE THEFT from the rest of us!!
