    Yes thank you.The connection came adrift whilst trying to fix a fault with the scart to tv connection.this is still faulty as I have to waggle the connector to get a connection.still can't see any bad joints on connector and other leads have same effects.
    By holding the scart plug to get a connection everything works fine but the slightest movement upsets things.
    Thank you for pointing to the original query,
    Regards.marc

Hi,

I am assuming that you have opened up the unit. If the "10 pin ribbon connector" is in the center of the unit, then it would either be going to the laser eye or coming from it and going to the main board. Otherwise pls reference below image of a similarly built but different model.

Should you be successful and the unit powers up but fails to initialize, pls try:

  • unplug from the mains;
  • press and hold RECORD and EJECT buttons simultaneously;
  • while retianing press on the two buttons, plug into the outlet;
  • wait until tray opens.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Glad that one issue is resolved and appreciate the rating. If I may remark, might not your original concern be a cold solder underneath the PCB?

If there is a lose ribbon connector , surely that is the reason.

Buy a service manual for your unit and fix it.

Just replaced battery but dont know how to reattach ribbon cable on nuvi 200


flip locking flap on connector away from the gold pins. Slide the ribbon cable into the connector on the side with the gold pins as far as it will go. The ribbon goes face down with its gold pins facing down. Then using two fingers flip the locking flap down and toward the ribbon cable. It should click. Be careful, if you snap the flap it is game over.

Missing power pack some ribbons


Rut Ro!

!O_O!

1) Three 'ribbon' cables are all you need.
Two IDE 40-pin cables, and One 34-pin Floppy Drive cable.

The wider 40-pin IDE ribbon cables are for the Harddrive, and Optical Drive/s. (CD/DVD drives)
(Actually 40 -> socket holes, and actually only 39 are used)

The narrower 34-pin IDE ribbon cable is for the Floppy drive.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_cables.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

Note*
I would like you to look at a Locating Lug, on an IDE flat ribbon cable, (IDE is also referred to as PATA),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PATA-cable.jpg

Note on the blue rectangular connector, the two ridges at the Top/Middle. This is a Locating Lug. Shapes vary, but the same basic principle is kept.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_on_mainboard.jpg

Note the two IDE motherboard connectors. One Blue, one Black.
Note on the blue IDE connector that there is a cutout on one side.
(Outside edge of motherboard, Middle of side )
This is what the Locating Lug lines up with.

[Note also that IDE1 is silkscreened, on the outside edge of the motherboard, and between the blue IDE connector.
This is where the harddrive cable plugs into.

IDE2 which is right above (Black), is where the optical drive/s cable plugs into ]

IF, there is No Locating Lug on the flat IDE ribbon cable's connector;

The thin Red stripe on the side of the flat ribbon cable, denotes which side Number 1 wire is on.

Looking at your motherboard, with the Processor to the Top, and Ram Memory slots to the Right; Number 1 pin in the two IDE connectors on the motherboard, is on the BOTTOM.

The Red strip on the flat ribbon cable, goes towards the Bottom of the motherboard.

Looking at the back of your IDE harddrive, start at the Right side, go towards the Left;
On the right side are 4 pins. These are for the power cable. To the left of them are jumper pins. To the left of the jumper pins is where the flat ribbon cable plugs in.

The Red strip ALWAYS goes toward the power cable.
Same thing with an optical drive.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=320584071749&nma=true&rt=nc&si=3aRaG4yZHczJd6Q3wXW2IIvaBys%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

With the above Gateway E-4000 motherboard example, the IDE connectors for the Harddrive, and optical drive/s, is at the Top/Middle.
The White connector is for the Optical Drive/s cable. (IDE2)
The Black connector above it is for the Harddrive cable. (IDE1)

The smaller black connector to the Left of the black Harddrive connector, is for the Floppy Drive cable.
The whitish opaque long connector under the black Floppy Drive connector, is where the 20-pin ATX main power cable plugs into,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

(Note color of connectors does Not matter)

3) Where the black Processor Fan is. Come to the Bottom/Right corner of it. Go straight across, and stop under the aluminum finned Heatsink, above it. (Heatsink looks like a meat tenderizer)

This whitish square 4-socket hole connector on the motherboard,
is where a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs in,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Note that both it, and the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector, has a Lock on one side. This lines up with a Lock Tab on the motherboard connector. When the power cables are deemed to be tightly, and properly plugged in, the hooked end of the Lock will be over the Lock Tab.

This type of power cable plugs into the Harddrive, and Optical Drive/s,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(Commonly misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make the connector, and their manufacturer name stuck. Kind of like referring to an open-end wrench as a Crescent wrench)

4-pin Peripheral power cables may also be used for computer case fans.
(Yellow wires are 12 Volt wires. { DC }
Red wires are 5 Volt wires. { DC }
Black wires are Ground wires.
Do not hook up a 5 Volt fan to a 12 Volt wire )

Intel D845GRG motherboard is Gateway part number 4000828,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/2519530/2519530mv.shtml

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The the area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wire go to from the Front Panel, is the Front Panel header.

In the list click on Q - Front Panel connector
Motherboard installed in computer case the Front Panel is down in the Bottom/Right corner. It is the second header over from the Right.

The pins across the Top row are numbered EVEN.
Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16.

The pins across the Bottom row are numbered ODD.
Starting on the LEFT side going across to the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDRive activity LED (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9, 11, 13, and 15 are not used. Reserved for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) There is No Pin 10
There is No Pin 14
Pins 12 and 16 are N/C. Not Connected.

You can also see in the list where the Front Panel USB ports connect to (P - Front Panel USB connector), and the Front Panel Audio ports, (V - Front Panel Audio jumper )

The Power Supply used is a piece of Cr@p.
160 Watts. This is what it looked like,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gateway-E-3600-4000-Power-Supply-6500582-NPS-160CB-Test-/270707982390?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f07740036

Gateway part number 6500704,

http://support.gateway.com/s/POWER/6500704/6500704nv.shtml

(Click on Product View, and on Specifications)

It is approximately 6 Inches Wide, 3-1/2 Inches Tall, and 4-1/2 Inches Long.

When installed there is a green plastic lock, that swings over to lock the Power Supply in.
I would remove that green plastic lock mechanism, and use an ATX Power Supply.

All the same dimensions as above, except it is 5-1/2 inches Long.
ATX power supplies are used in a LOT of desktop computer, and readily available. A VERY common Power Supply.

Guess what else? You won't be stuck with a lowly 160 Watt power supply, or have to pay through the nose to get another piece of junk like it.

The Philips head screws in the back of the computer case, hold the Power Supply in just fine, without that plastic piece of junk, also.
An example of a Power Supply that would work, green plastic Lock removed,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1389575&CatId=1078

430 Watt Power Supply will Not harm the computer.
Why?
Because a computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.

D945gtp how to connect cd-rom hardware


1) IDE {PATA} DVD burner drive:

For an IDE { PATA } DVD burner, connect to the 40-pin IDE header on the motherboard. This is located to the right side of the Ram Memory slots.
It is the longer header that has 40 contact pins. {39 actually}

( The shorter connector on the motherboard is for a Floppy Drive.
{34 pins} It is above the IDE 40-pin connector )

NOTE*
The IDE connector on the motherboard should be keyed. Should have a cutout on one side. This is so the Number 1 pin in the flat IDE ribbon cable, will line up with Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector.

Some flat IDE ribbon cables, do not have a Locating Lug on the connector. (Small rectangular 'bump')

Number 1 pin on the IDE ribbon cable will be on the side that has a faint RED stripe on it.

Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector is at the Bottom, with the motherboard installed.

The side of the flat ribbon IDE cable that has the faint red stripe on it, goes DOWN, when installed in the motherboard connector.

If the DVD drive does not have a cutout for it's circuit board, the faint red stripe of the flat ribbon IDE cable, goes towards the power cable connection.

2) SATA DVD burner drive:
You have 4 Serial ATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard.
Your SATA harddrive should be plugged into the SATA1 header.

You can choose any open available SATA header, to plug your SATA DVD burner drive into.
BIOS will see it once you turn the computer on.

3) If you somehow have been using an IDE {PATA} harddrive, and have it connected to your IDE connector on the motherboard, you SHOULD not use a DVD drive on that flat IDE ribbon cable, also.

BIOS has to find which device has the Operating System on it, (Windows), and then hand the computer over to the Operating System.

To state again, BIOS will look at both devices connected to that flat ribbon cable. The Harddrive, and the DVD drive.
It will then determine that the Harddrive, is the device that has Windows on it, not the DVD drive.

This slows the computer down, and could result in a blue screen.

If you have an IDE harddrive plugged into the motherboard, it would be best to use a SATA DVD drive.

How do you get the hard drive out of a Toshiba Equium 7100D computer?


It's been a Long time since I have worked on one of these, so forgive me if my information is somewhat sketchy.

If memory serves the Left side of the case comes off. (Viewing the desktop computer from the front.)

There are clips underneath that need to be depressed, in order to remove this side cover.
From there with a flashlight, you should be able to view the other corresponding clips to depress, and remove the rest of the cover. Believe it lifts up so far, then slides forward.

At the Front Right side is the CD drive. There is a single screw you remove, and then the CD drive tilts up. From there you will see a single screw, that holds the harddrive in.

Once you are able to lift the harddrive up a bit, you wiggle the whitish colored plastic plug, side to side, as you pull out. This is a 4-pin Molex connector. It provides power from the power supply to the harddrive.

Sometimes this Molex connector can be QUITE tight, and hard to remove. DO NOT pull on the wires! If you use finesse, you can use a pair of pliers to wiggle it out. I advise using a Lot of finesse, as you can crush the plug. Sometimes it requires a bit of force!
The Molex plug looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Molex_female_connector.jpg

Then the 40-pin interface cable connector is removed. (Flat ribbon cable goes to this connector) Use a Lot of finesse here, as the tiny pins can be bent Quite easily!

Now the harddrive is in your hand, and you can examine it more closely.

The 4-pin Molex connector only goes in the harddrive, in one direction.
The top corners are tapered, and allow the plug to be installed only one way.

The 40-pin connector may be another story!
Looking at the connector itself, observe if there is a square lug on top. (Square plastic protrusion, emanating from the top edge of the rectangular plug)

This square lug lines up with a cutout in the back of the harddrive. It puts the 40-pin connector, in the proper position in the harddrive.
If this square lug is absent, don't fret when you go to re-install.
I will advise you the way to do it properly.

On one side of that flat ribbon cable you will see a faint Red line, or stripe. This Red line corresponds with Number 1 pin in the ribbon cable. Number 1 pin is on the side where the Red line is.

Viewing the back of your harddrive that you're going to install, (It is an IDE harddrive. Also referred to as EIDE, ATA, or PATA), note the pin locations.

All the way to the right are 4 pins. This is where the 4-pin Molex connector plugs into.
To the immediate Left are the Jumper pins.

To the Left of the Jumper pins are the 40, (39 actually), pins where the flat ribbon cable plugs into.

Number 1 pin goes towards the power connection.
The Red stripe on the flat ribbon cable, will be facing the 4-pin power connection on the harddrive.

If you have any further questions on this, please come back, and post them in an additional comment.

Adding a 320g seagate drive to my dell pc


The ribbon-cable to the first hard-drive probably has one connector at each end, and one more connector in the "middle". Look very closely at both hard-drives. Between where the ribbon-cable connects and where the 4-wire power connects is a set of pins. Look for 'MA' or 'CS' or 'SL' annotations above/below each pair of pins. Remove the small jumper from each disk-drive, and put the jumper back into the 'CS' position on each drive. Make sure that the "first" hard-drive is *NOT* connected to the "middle" connector on the ribbon-cable -- connect it *ONLY* to the "end" connector. Restart your computer, and watch the first start-up screen -- it should report that *BOTH* disk-drives have been detected. When Windows starts, open "My Computer" -- both disk-drives should be listed.

Hi there, my printer is saying it doesn't recognise ink cartridges,so i've just changed them, and it still isn't reading them... help?


Are these genuine Epson cartridges or clones? If clones, have you used this particular type before? Put your old cartridges in (that used to work) - are they recognised. If so, you have a dodgy set of cartridges. If not, you have a more serious problem. Remove the ink cartridges and look inside the carrier - do the contact pins that contact the cartridge chip look intact and undamaged. Check the narrow ribbon cable that runs along the left side of the carrier along the bottom has not come out of its connector. Check that the large ribbon cable that goes from the left side of the carrier to the main board has not come adrift. Report back.
