CD- drive Until recently the CD-drive was working perfectly. When I turned it on a few minutes ago, there is no evidence of the drive. Like it isn't there and no CD's are read. What can I do?

My oven fan has recently started to make a very loud rattling noise for around 30 seconds once every few minutes while the oven is turned on in fan mode.


The fan needs be cleaned and lubricated. To do this: Turn off stove/oven. Remove fan cover plate. Remove fan. Clean and lubricate the shaft bearings with 3 way oil. Install fan and cover plate.

We have a DENON L.C twin transformer amplifier PMA-735R that has an input selector that freaks out now and again. Recently it has gotten worse, it just goes back and forth between tuner and cd etc. for...


Hi Readers to of Fixya,
This entry is January 22, 2016.
I own a Denon PMA 735R which I bought new in 1999, it is very good Amp; starting about a few years ago the input selector would occasionally randomly jump from CD to Phono to Tape etc., but would always end up back at CD so it was not terribly annoying until a few days ago when it started happening all the time. I am a very knowledgeable electronics person (I built musical keyboards at one time) so my thought was just that it was a dust problem and I started with that premise. I fixed it using an Electrical Parts Cleaner spray and here is how I did it:
I unplugged it, removed the CD input RCA cables and removed the L & R speaker cables and took it off its shelf and set it on a towel on my soft sofa; I removed the casing by unscrewing four big silver screws on the sides (my model is silver) and the three small black screws on the back top; I removed the Input Selector indicator knob on the front and the Record Out Selector indicator knob and the Volume knob, I then removed the small nut that holds the three of them tightly in place to the front panel; I then stood it on its back so that the front was facing up; I then sprayed my Electrical Parts Cleaner spray into the Input Selector indicator post liberally and then put the knob back in place and kept turning the indicator back and forth for a few minutes to work the cleaner inside the post down into the circuit board connection; I did the same with the Record Out Selector indicator post and I did the same with the Volume post; I then put the small nuts back on the three posts and tightened them; I then put the knobs back on the three posts; I then stood it back on its normal upright position and put the casing back on and then the screws; I placed back on its shelf and hooked up the cables and switched it back on and played my CD's, it has been working perfectly fine. The whole process took less than 30 minutes.I hope this helps.

I recently bought a Seagate Barracuda 500gb Sata hard drive for more disc space. I connected it to my computer. When I try to run the installation program(off the cd) It puts up a mini screen saying to...


There's no reason you'd want to install (another) program to get your operating system to use the drive. Just use drive manager or whatever (in administrative tools in Windows) to check that the format's suitable for your use (ntfs is good, fat32 is...less good, xfs is great, ext4 is unexpected but good) and rename the volume, maybe assign a drive letter; and rebooting is almost not optional. Is there truly no title (e.g. Seagate Drive Tools 7.31.132) to the installer?

There might be a log inspection tool handy for explaining what was going on with the InstallShield thing at the time in Administrative Tools too; e.g. there isn't any space on your first drive. If not, we can wait for other reasons to care about stalled apps.

My ibook g3 running slow


If you have the original Install CDs that came with the iBook put in Install Disk 1.
When the Menu Bar appears go to Disk Utility (under file manu). Choose your HD and look for the S.M.A.R.T. status. It should be Verified. Then choose Repair Permissions. After that is done choose Repair Disk.

If none of this works find the Hardware Test Disk and run that.

My pc is rejecting all cd/dvd's. It was working perfectly until two days ago


Well! Beggars *CAN* be choosers!

Get a laser-cleaning CD and run that through the drive.

If you can't (or are too cheap) to get one of those, try leaving the drive-tray open overnight to see if it's just a condensation problem.
