Aristocrat Elan We have a Aristocrat Elan 2 up 10 cent Poker Machine.A few months ago a family member got a jack-pot price , so we switched the machine off. It then asked for a Attendant ,It then started to make a tivking noise from the speaker and the light keep flashing near the reset switch .We do not have a key for the reset lock so I pulled the wires off and rejoined them back to gether again and stll the same. I then pulled it apart and cleaned up the around the gears but stll no good [Iam sure the gears are set all right].Have you got any ideas as to our problem. Is there a manual for these machines and what would it cost. Joe.

Bought an Original XBox used. Worked great for about 2 days--played KOTOR 1. On the 3rd day, it froze and read that there was a problem reading the disc. Annoyed that the XBox: -originally played...

Unfortunately this is high likely a disc player issue and it will be cheaper for you to purchase a new (old) system then it would be for you to go through the hassle of repair.

As you have already specified you are aware of the pot tweaking and that is the route that might lead you to a solution if you are to try and do it yourself. Another option though also costing money is to purchase just the disc player from ebay and change it out completely. Again, I find Xbox 360 cheap enough at pawn shops or yard sales that you could easliy find a cheap one.

I have given all my original xbox systems to family members already otherwise I would have gaven you one of mind.

Good luck.

Turn on ps3, light truns green for a second then turn red with a beeping noise?

I had this problem not a few months ago. It is the beginning of the yellow light of death syndrome. Sony can repair it if it is in warranty, or there are independent chains that also do repairs. The price to repair mine (replacing the optical drive) was $130.

The PS3 freezes and then shuts down, tried all the trouble shooting ideas from manuel and not working. ie cleaned and vacumed the outside of the console re-booted it, let it sit for a few days and tried...

It maybe the start of the yellow light of death (YLOD). If it's within warranty take it back for a repair. If not your machine could be in for a bit of open heart surgery. This happened to my machine a few months ago I then searched the web for a cure. I ended up opening my machine and performing a Reflow on the motherboard. If you're technical or know someone who likes taking things apart you can do this yourself in an hour. Go to this website for info MIC-B.COM. Then go to REPAIRS - MOST POPULAR ARTICLES - PS3 YLOD DIY REFLOW. Follow the online steps and hopefully your machine will burst back into life.
Best of luck...

I bought another Xbox 360 a few months ago, and for some reason, the wireless controllers take a couple minutes to connect. This happens for both my old controller and new controller, even if they're...

First Check the batteries ,I'm sure you did this all ready.
Second is the RF module AKA ring of lights has a weak transceiver.
This module is simple to replace affter the removl of the case and
three screws on the module itself . Then just plug and play with the
new module . They cost around 10.00-20.00 from many suppliers.

If you have any question feel free to ask.

How do I launch Full Tilt Poker after I've already downloaded it?

If you've downloaded it from the PS Store, once it's loaded to your machine it will be displayed under the games menu at the bottom. It needs to be installed to your system. If you have more than a few downloaded games it will create a folder with all of them in it. Once it's installed, then you can play it.

Nintendo DS Lite - trying to recharge it, been plugged in most of the day. I have noticed that the red LED is flashing when the DS is connected to the mains, is this normal?


This is down to a number of possabilities:

1) Give the Battery terminals a bit of a clean up by either using an alcohol solution such as white spirit or scratch them clean with a small sharp knife or scalpel.

2) Try another battery - Rather than going ahead and buying a new one first see if you can borrow one off a friend or family member for a few seconds.

3) Try a different charger - Again, rather than going ahead and buying a new one first see if you can borrow one off a friend or family member for a few seconds.

4) Your fuse/s may have blown - You need to have fairly good soldering skills as the fuse you will be replacing is tiny (1.6mm x 0.8mm). You can buy the fuse you need from ebay (do a search for ds lite fuse). Take your ds lite apart and locate the "f1" fuse (here is a link to the pic of the fuse location: ). Remove the blown fuse by de soldering it and replace it with the new fuse and solder it into place, once this is done you can put your ds back together and test if the charger now works... if it does work but the ds will not switch on you will have to also replace f2 (also shown on the picture).

If you want a more detailed explaination for the replacement of the fuses do a google search for "ds lite fuse replacement2 and you should get plenty of guides show up.

Some people say just to bridge this fuse if its blown but i'm strongly against this, the fuse is there for a reason and if you bypass it more serious damage can occur and that will be far more costly and dangerous.

Hope this helps and like to say I accept no responsibility for any damage that may occur whilst using my advice.

Well it might be an issue with the av cables or the rf switch or the tv its self. One time I plugged my SNES console into the rya jacks for video 2 and the screen was in black grey and white but I tried it on video 1 with my av cable and channel 3 for my rf switch and it was fine. It could be the problem that i had.

You may have to adjust the POT of the GameCube lens... The POT is basically the power and spread the lens uses to read discs... the problem is, over a long period of time, the POT figure drops down, and if it drops too low, you will need to replace the lens.. The machine could still be salvageable, and play games and load them faster than before if you adjust the POT on the machine.. Here is a guide on what is required to open up the machine and do it, if you feel it necessary....
