My son dropped his brand new DSI and the corner chipped and now the top corner button will not work. He needs it for his favorite game, so you can imsgine how this is going! How and where do I get it...


It is extremely unlikely that you can get it fixed in an economically sensible way. I have never seen a console repair place fix portable systems because they require such a high level of expertise. Your best bet is to return to the store you bought it from and see if there is a warranty that covers the damage. If a warranty applies, most likely they will just give you a new DS. If not, contact Nintendo. They do repair their consoles, but is very expensive, and it may just be better to buy a new one.

PS3 will not start-the green light and hard drive starts up for a few seconds then shuts off


Hello,

The problem is a hardware problem, which is due to a failure in a component it the unit.
You will have to dismantle the playstation, clean it and couple it back together. To dismantle the playstation, follow the steps below:
1.
  • Pull the warranty sticker off of the bottom of the PS3. This will void your warranty, so make sure that the problem you are addressing is not covered by your warranty. Note that taking your PS3 to be repaired by someone other than Sony will still void your warranty. You are not losing anything by taking apart your PS3 yourself. Under the sticker will be a small piece of rubber that hides a single screw. Remove the rubber piece and unscrew the screw.
  • 2 Slide the faceplate off of the PlayStation 3. After the faceplate is removed, you can now separate the two halves of the plastic covering. Remove and set aside the top piece of the plastic case to expose the internal components of the PS3. On the underside of the top plastic covering, there will be a memory card slot at the bottom-right corner.
  • 3 Locate and remove the Bluetooth circuit board. Remove the four screws to lift the Bluetooth board free. This is located at the bottom-left corner of the main body of the PS3 if you have the system flat on its side instead of standing up straight. This will look like a green rectangle with a tan metal covering.
  • 4 Locate the small circuit board that controls the power and eject functions of the PlayStation 3. Remove the four Phillips-head screws in order to separate this piece from the body of the system. This is located at the bottom-right corner of the PS3, directly in front of the disc box.
  • 5 Locate and remove the Blu-Ray/PS3 player. This is the large tan metal box that is located in the top right corner of the PS3. Unscrew the player and flip it upside down to expose the circuit board that controls it. If you want to remove the circuit board, there are five small screws that hold it in place.
  • 6 Remove the power supply from the inside of the gaming system. This is located at the top-left corner inside the PS3. To remove this component, there will be two telephone-like plugs that have to be unplugged, one at the top and one at the bottom of the power supply. Additionally, there will be 13 screws that hold the power supply in place. The back and front plastic coverings of the PS3's shell will now easily slide free.
  • 7 Remove the final internal component, which is the PS3's motherboard. In order to do this, remove the metal covering the rests on top of the motherboard. There will be 11 screws that border the metal covering as well as four screws in the very center, two from each of the rectangular center pieces. Once the screws are removed, the metal covering will lift off and the motherboard will be able to be removed.


  • Have it cleaned and properly reverse the process to reassemble it back together.

    Note: If you are still under the warranty period of purchase, you can take it back to the dealer that supplied it to you for their technical support.

    Take care and good luck

    Is their a way to open a PS3 counsole, my kid might of put a couple of dvd movies in it, it turns on but then shuts down and red light flashes


    Hello,

    To open your ps3, you need to first shut it down and disconnect all the cables connected to it, wait for about an hour for the high voltage in it to dissipate. The you get a screwdriver that matches the screws on it.

    Pull the warranty sticker off of the bottom of the PS3. This will void your warranty, so make sure that the problem you are addressing is not covered by your warranty. Note that taking your PS3 to be repaired by someone other than Sony will still void your warranty. You are not losing anything by taking apart your PS3 yourself.

    But before you get to all these parts you must have gotten your DVD movies out.

    I have a Lexmark color printer, I can't find where the ink goes in?


    if it's a flatbed scanner model, the whole scanner assembly on the top is larger than the printer portion below. if you lift up on the front corner of the larger scanner assembly, you will see the ink cartridge carriage tucked under the left or right far side when the printer is not printing. power the printer on, lift up the scanner assembly, and wait for the ink cartridge carriage to move itself out from being tucked off to the side. you will see a clip on the front top corner for each cartridge. gently pull forwards (the clip) with your thumb, and the cover will pop open to take out the old cartridge.

    ps. remember to take of the piece of tape that covers the jet nozzels on the new cartridge before inserting cartridge into carriage.

    ARE YOU WANTING TO REMOVE THE TOP COVER?

    IF THE WASHER IS LESS THAN 25 YEARS OLD, THE TOP DOESN'T COME OFF BY ITSELF. IT IS ATTACHED TO THE CABINET WITH SCREWS FROM UNDERNEATH.
    THERE ARE EITHER TWO SCREWS IN THE LOWER FRONT CORNER OF THE CONSOLE OR IN THE REAR CORNERS OF THE CONSOLE. REMOVE THOSE TWO SCREWS AND SLIDE THE CONOLE FORWARD AND PIVOT UP AND BACK OUT OF THE WAY. THERE ARE TWO CLIPS THAT HOLD THE CABINET TO THE BASE. REMOVE THE TWO CLIPS BY INSERTING A FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER IN THE FRONT HOLE THAT THE CLIP GOES INTO. PRY BACKWARD AND UP ON THE END OF THE CLIP TO RELEASE IT FROM THE CABINET. UNHOOK THE PLUG IN THE BACK THAT GOES TO THE LID SWITCH AND TIP THE ENTIRE CABINET TOWARD YOU AND LIFT OFF OF THE BASE. THIS WILL GAIN ACCESS TO THE MAJOR COMPONENTS.
