Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

1 Answer

Clarification request Hi again, thejohnsonsn, My original post indicated that my 3 year old iMac began to intermittently power down by itself. After a couple of months of me finding it off rather than in sleep mode, one evening it just wouldn't power back up. I ran through the usual plug/ electricity checks which didn't show anything untoward. Beyond that I don't have any expertise. By the time Krabby responded I had taken the iMac to a local computer shop. Although he agreed with the diagnosis of a bad power source, he felt that the cost was too high. Nothing I could do about that, I was basically a hostage to the repair. In any event, the iMac is up and running well. Anything else I can answer for you ? Thanks, Ma

Hi We bought a Sony Bravia 40" 2 1/2 years ago. Model # KDL40EX400. After about 14 months we started to experience something very bizarre. The TV would turn itself off. No lights on the screen. Af


At some point you have to cut your losses, this is the reason I suggest getting an extended warranty with coverage (including the maker) of 3 years, 80 of the 140 sets in our shop are less than 3 years old, if this set had that they would have to fix or replace the set----One reason I choose to answer your question (I do this here for free) is this set ought to have a error buffer, when set fails it will count the event and that also indicates where the issue is.

Most of the Sony sets for the last decade with set off and using the Sony remote: Display, 5, vol down, and POWER will if set comes on bring up a display with a number of shortened items listed----they should all if the set has this be a zero. Any with a number indicates a issue and the number indicates the number of times this event has happened.

Microwave MCO160UQ lite and turntable work. does not heat and power level cannot be set. (power level display toggles between "-20" and "0-10")


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So if you need further free help, please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your symptoms.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

Microwave makes a loud sound and then won't heat. About 3 years old.


It sounds like a failing magnetron. Sometimes they can be intermittent before they finally fail for good.

Chances are your oven has a 5-10 year warranty on the magnetron.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your detailed symptoms.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Okay, you probably need a new power supply, this unit had many power supply and logic board problems.  300.00 is a lot for a power supply, 120.00 is the usual cost plus 50.00 labour, and that is canadian dollars, it should be much cheaper if you are in the U.S.

Since the set is only 4 months old, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the set as that will void the warranty. Call for warranty service and indicate that this is an intermittant problem. If you can report any pattern about when this behavior occurs, that info will be helpful in resolving the problem.

Keep us posted.

Help with a nokia 1600


Hi 1999AirForce,
I have a guaranted solution for ur problem. U must send me feedback and post clarification request after the solution.
I have a method to bypass ur security code. Later on u may change it.
For it, the process are :
1) When the phone asks for security code, there is unlock option in the left hand side of the screen.
2) At that time, dont enter it.
3) Instead of it, press and hold left soft key and * button at once. (dont press them alternately, otherwise it dont work)
4) If u hv properly pressed the buttons, then it will ask an option " Press * to unlock ". At that time, fastly press the * button.
5) Now u have bypassed the security code.
6) Later on u can change ur security code by same process from the security option inside the settings option.
================================================
Dont forget to send ur kind feedback and rate my solution !!! ( For posting clarification request, u have to choose clarification request instead of solution in the "post a ....." option and post it.)

================================================
