    Kickstand is down, switch I think is still working, bike is in Neutral when it cranks, have not pulled any plugs out the motor. Only front end is really crashed up. Can't see any error codes becuse the LCD screen is cracked.
    Thanks alot for your response

    Thank you, I will check for this sensor it probably flew off during the crash, the fuel pump never made noise when the ignition is cut on. The secondary throttle plates would open when the ignition was cut to the "ON" position and that would be the only noise i heard.
    Thank you

    Sidestand switch broken? You have to have air, fuel, and spark to run. Have you pulled any of the plugs, are you getting fuel? My best guess is either computer has the fuel or spark shut off for some reason. Have you read the error codes on the bike, and have they been reset since the crash?

The bank angle sensor is usually mounted in the front end, and if this is damaged it will not run. Listen for the fuel pump to power up and run.If you dont hear the fuel pump come on then start looking for the sensor.It could be upside down or damaged.

I have a sony bravia 46'' lcd 2x hdmi tv when I GO THRU MORE THEN ABOUT 10 CHANELS KIND OF QUICKLY the tv goes to a green screen and stays on a green screen until i restart the tv is this norm

I find it unlikely this is normal.

I am not a betting man but..........

What I would do is invest the time to contact Sony customer service and talk to someone who can access their database.

They like other major companies keep extensive records of every complaint recorded---see if anyone else had this issue.

Sony has had some beauties---Recently an issue where heat warps the door made of plastic in front of the lamp resulted not in a free part but free repair and or replacement of the 3-4 year old sets involved.

let me know if you have questions

Touch screen won't work

Trying to remove the battery sometimes resets any issues. If it's not under warranty one can repair it with the use of micro precision screwdriver kit you can get at the dollar general for about 4 dollars. First I would disassemble it, and try reseating the flex cable that attaches the LCD screen to the main board. There is a plastic lock that holds the cable in, so make sure to lift that up before gently pulling the flex cable out. If pulling it out and putting it back in doesn't make a difference I would look at replacing the flex cable, and lastly the LCD panel. Because you didn't mention anything about cracks, water, or any other LCD damage, my opinion leans towards the flex cable shorting out.

I just bought a 2006 zx14 that will only start with the kickstand up and the clutch pulled in. The neutral light is on but if you put the stand down the bike shuts off.

Both the clutch and the kickstand are safety features to stop people crashing.If the stand is down and hits to road while you are riding.You crash.The clutch is to stop people starting the bike in gear and losing control if it starts.Hope this helps you

Steering head split while riding 2006 zx14 model, not an impact accident, front forks did not bend

The ZX14 is not subject to such a failure without some type of instigation. I have repaired many ZX14 that have been in accidents and the forks appear to be stronger than the steering head. This means that the steering head area will bend / break before the forks will. The most common cause for broken steering head is the Wheelie. When the bike comes back down from the wheelie it has very high impact on the steering head. I would suggest a new frame as repairing a broken steering head can be very dangerous.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Recently purchased, used Mazda 3 driver side seat belt is completely slack and will not retract. If I remove panel that is between front and back driver side doors to attempt to fix will that damage panel?...

The panel is attached with plastic clips, if you damage them replacements are available. Chances are you won"t be able to repair the belt retractor as it"s a sealed mechinism.
