    I could tell he was a nob as the minute he started adjusting his hat.

    Though actaully, that was a very `Jeremy Clarkson` way to fix something. Although he`d use a hammer.

    backfat with another great reference.

    The Fonz would have done this better, and with one rap of his fist.

    had a compaq laptop and the screen would flake out once in a while. beat the poo out of it and it would work for another day. never discount the "just keep hittin it" technique.


    works on the pancake maker too.

    As a repair technicians let me explain what`s happening here. First off that is an LCD not a Plasma. there are some very fine wires that are connected to the screen me sometimes break those leaving deadlines. By banging on it he`s causing these broken wires to temporarily touch each other thus completing the circuit and make it work. Unfortunately this is not truly fixing it once the TV is jostled in any way you will lose lines once again.

    reminds me of at my sister`s house. they have a big screen and we were watching the football game. the kids were playing upstairs and jumped from the bed to the floor shaking the house slightly and the TV downstairs goes black. my brother-in-law, a lazy slob, says, "it does that all the time, you just have to smack the back" and precedes to kick the poo out of the back of the TV...

    he`s the kind of person who his 360 got the red circles and instead of finding out how to fix it, threw it away and bought a PS3...mind you, the 360 was <6 months old brand new from store, so there had to be some kind of warranty on it...
