I know and believe that most others know that "slamming" anything to get it to work is not the way to fix any problem. Any problem that is corected by slamming or hitting is only going to repeat itself later on.
Seemed to work just fine with our old black and white TV when we were kids.
I once asked a TV repairman (remember them?) why hitting it worked and he said it "knocks off parasites on the picture tube."
Maybe that is why they are extinct...
