Question about FixYa Service

How do I change my expertise?

I want to know, how do I change my expertise, without becoming an expert? Right now my expertise says camcorders. I didn't become an expert though, because I'd probably get in trouble with my mom. I want to change it to: cameras and ipods. I don't know anything about camcorders. I don't even know if I'm spelling the word right? I know you'll probably say just go to edit profile. I have, but you have to become an expert to change it. Is there another way to change it without becoming an expert. All I want to do is help people, because it makes me feel good inside. I feel silly and stupid, having 152 solutions that say I'm good with camcorders, under the camera and ipod problems.

Pleae help me.

    I'm sorry robshow, but I clearly stated in my problem on the 4th line: "I know you'll probably say just go to edit profile. I have, but you have to become an expert to change it." Next time, please read more carefully.

    Thank You Lauren. I now know I have an Expert's account. Is there any way you (FixYa) can delete it? I don't want to get in trouble for getting money from a website.

    Hi Lauren. What do I need to send in the e-mal? I don't get what your saying. If you delete my account, will it erase all of my solutions and other things?

Hi Joe. You actually do have an Expert's account, that is the only reason that you have any Areas of Expertise on your profile in the first place. So Rob's advice was accurate. If you'll go to your Profile Page and click on Edit Profile, you can select from the drop-down menus. Please feel free to contact FixYa Support Team directly at:

I have been in the business of audio and video repair for 35 years. Are you looking for any diagnostic technicians? Bart Gravino


We are always looking for support technicians on this site. If you think you could become an expert all you have to do is sign up and answer a minimum of 10 free questions a month, then you will become eligable for paid or what we call Premium questions. If you live in the US you can also apply to become a phone support technician.
Phone support is just in the stages of being tested and is expected to be launched next month (hopefully).

If you have other areas of expertise you can add them via your FixYa profile page.

Kind regards and we hope that you decide to join our ever growing community.

Power Light blinks

The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!
