Hi I have a new five pound note with numbers aao1 370994 is it worth anything

Hello, Sharron -

It is worth 5 pounds (United Kingdom.)

If you wish to know what is the equivalent of 5 U.K. pounds in another currency (U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, Euros, etc.) you can use a currency converter.

I like to use the one here:

Best wishes.

Yes I just want to know I it's worth fixing this prob. I have a maytag Neptune tl washer model fav6800aww it's starts fine but after 3 minutes it stops on wash cycle an after 5 minutes Lr shows on...

Lr error code is locked rotor. Could be a couple different issues.

Google this phrase and read thru the post ""[FIXED] Maytag Neptune Top Load FAV6800AWW -- tub/motor will not spin""

Post in that forum if you want to DIY I do not offer DIY help here any more.

TV color is greenish, I believe its a lamp issues..


I dont like giving bad news but someone needs to answer your question. It is not the bulb. It is something called an "OPTICAL BLOCK". Sony as well as other companies have had issues with these.

To make a complicated thing short, the block combines the red green blue LCD images through some mirrors and filters. I do not know if the problems come in the filter or in the lcd screens but eventually the color seems to drift.

The good news is, that sony has extended its warrenty. I do not pretend to know if they will cover your tv, however it is worth giving them a very upset call. If they wont replace the block, they have also been giving discounts on similar sized LCD FLAT SCREENS. I know a lady who now has a 55 inch LCD hanging on her wall for 400 dollars. So the savings are substantial.

On EBAY there are people who claim they can repair the blocks for 200 to 400 dollars. And In the chicago craiglist ads there is also a man who repairs the blocks for 350. Buying a used block is about 1000 dollars, and a new block is about 3000.

I wish I had better news for you. Please feel free to email me if you want to discuss this further.

The machine has HELLO but will not start up. if i hold the on/standbye for a few seconds, the time will appear and then back to hello when I press play. All I did was put a tape in which I can not now...

Hello everyone having problems with there RCA DRC8335. If you are getting the HELLO sign and nothing else(which i was too).
First you have to find the blown capacitor. All the capacitors should have a flat top. If you find one that is not flat and if gets hot to the touch when your vhs/dvd player has power you found your source. Next unplug your dvd/vhs player and take out the blown capacitor. Do not waste your money tring to get it fix by a so call pro. The parts you need is less than .55 cents(lol). Now the capacitor that you take out should have a code number(mine was c226) which is located in the same area as the blown part. Measure the capacitor and call for your part number 1-800-344-4539 will find the part you need(only if u know what part u need)
1.find the blown capacitor
2.remove it
3.get the number below the blown capacitor
4. measure it. for your part number
6.put your hard earn dollar(not dollars) to work
7.and you can say Thanks Maximilian Moore for saving me money

RCA dvd/vhs DRC8335 stuck on HELLO

December 27, 2008 received by email from Ann M.
Just like John H, my problem was also capacitor C226, but in my case overheating wasn't the give-away here. Instead, I noticed the bottom of the capacitor appeared melted a little and the top looked like it was slightly bulged. I removed the damaged capacitor and replaced it with a new one rated at 35 volts and now my DRC8335 is working perfectly again!

It worked it cost me 4 hours on hold with the Republic of the Philippines. Being told the new Unit sent had a 90 day warranty. It did they were right after 90 days it stopped working. The part was a Radio Shack 272-1030.
