Sounds like a jammed micro-switch, open it up and check for dirt in the loading mech.

I'm using a LG5530A and I can't play cds anymore. It keeps on saying No Disc, though there's a disc inside

it could be that the laser that reads the disc is faulty or it could just need a clean.try putting a laserdisc cleaner through it.
if you dont have one then you can try and open it and use a very soft cotton bud and just rub it very gently across the laser.
do not push down on the laser or touch it with you fingers.
you just need to gently wipe it clean.
do not put anything on the cotton bud just use it dry.
let me know how you get on.

Car will not acept key

take key out of console. Then push down fairly hard on the insert-turn key area, it goes down about 1/2 inch----, while ---,,taking your other hand--push your finger into the base where the key would be--push down lightly your finger will go about 3 inches past the base-down to the bottom.

slowly pull your finger out ,, release pressure on the insert key -turn key area to the front of the key base area..

Now ,,put the key in the console key holder -turn to the right -Kazooom you are good for go. !

If this does not work ,,loosen the negative battery cable,with key in console ,disconnect for 30 seconds,, replace cable.. try to start . If not starting do the above procedure again as the computer memory is now blank.

Best bet,,BEFORE disconnecting any battery connection put the key in the console turn to the right, short of cranking the starter.Keep the key in this position
Then Disconnnect the battery--

When battery is reconnected, wait 3 minutes, then try the key for starting this usually works wonders. Doors must be closed,,, foot on brake pedal when starting..

My RAS8244LQO Rober washer won't spin . Can you

Usually a drive coupling or lid switch assembly, if this is a Roper washer. If you put the timer on spin and turn it on, it runs but wont spin then it is a coupling 99% of the time. If it wont start in spin then check your lid switch. This washer has a very cool design to get into the mechanism. The top console flips up, usually you have to take out two screws on each of the front corners and then pull the console forward and up until it flips upside down. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness and take a large flat screw driver and stick it into the left and right hand slots that have the brass retainer clips . You stick the screwdriver straight down and then pry the clips out by pushing back on the screwdriver. Remove both clips, grab the outer washer cabinet and tip it towards you, at a 45 degree angle you can slide the front of the cabinet out from under the base and remove the whole cabinet. Now you will need to remove the water pump, two clips, leave the hoses on, the motor has two clips that sometimes has two screws holding the clips on. Unclip the motor wiring and remove the motor. You will see the drive coupling, three parts, one rubber cushion with 6 holes and two round discs with three fingers. The two discs are attached to the motor shaft and the transmission shaft. Usually you will see broken fingers, worn holes or cracked plastic when you have a bad coupling. You need to remove the plastic parts from the shafts, and install the new coupling by tapping them onto the shaft. I usually use a long 3/8 inch extension and a light hammer to tap the coupling on untill the coupling is flush with the shaft. Install the black cushion onto the transmission disc, line up the motor disc with the cushion holes, install the bottom motor clip first, and then the top motor clip. This ususally requires some strong thumbs to clip the top motor clip on. Reinstall the pump, the cabinet. Make sure the cabinet is on the side rails in back. Reinstall the cabinet clips, plug your lid switch wiring back in and reinstall the console. Good Luck.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole

Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

How do I change the flilter on the sebo upright

Depends on the filter you're talking about:
The first filter is in the bag area- unhook and lift off the bin door, then bend down and flick your finger onto the left hand spring that locks the long cylindrical felt filter in place and lift upwards - this will loosen and unlock the filter from the base - put your hand at the back or front of the filter at the front near the base and pull towards you - the filter should then slide off easily.
Or it could be the motor filter you are referring to; push the pedal all the way down on the pedal release to put the X1/X1.1/X4/X5 into the lay-flat cleaning position, and push back the grille on top of the hood - you'll see a push finger mechanism there of which the grille will then be unlocked and can be picked up.

Swap Magic Problems

well .. i have changed my mind and thought i will help you.. can you tell me if the disc is spinning? If its not then try this..
The disk is not spinning because the flip top is not making contact with the sensors. Make sure the flip top is installed correctly. If the sensors are still not pushed down, boot up the swap magic disk and GENTLY put pressure on top of the flip top and see if the disk begins to be read. If it does, this means it is definitely the sensors. Like in my first post, open the ps2 and put a piece of thick tape over the rear sensor and a piece of tissue paper in the hole where the front cover opens. This will solve the problem.

Right door handle upside down pinches fingers. how to remove and flip?

mirellis, grab the handle with both hands and push in and up. The handle will slide off the retainer clips. To put them back on, line up the clip holes push in and pull down. I never tried flipping them, but you will find out real fast. This is for the GS6NBEXRL model that was posted, Catriver.

Xbox does not read discs.

Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
