SOURCE: How to use xf551 disk drive.

Here's how these old suckers work. You have to have an old (latest - late 1980s) DOS-based PC with the proper attachment cable for such a drive. Preferably an ATARI computer. You have to leave the disk drive flip switch OPEN until DOS loads, or it will give you an error message. After the old clunk DOS-based computer is finished loading, THEN you can close the flip switch (with a floppy disk in, of course). I can't give you exact instructions b/c I don't know exactly what kind of ancient PC you have. Here is a link to an YouTube video showing you about what to expect :(1986 Tandy):

Have fun! These are real pains in the neck compared to what we have now.

SOURCE: I turn my PS3 on then the light turns a tannish

This is probably the yellow light of death. This caused when the unit overheats causing the solder to bridge. Contact Sony to see if it is till under warranty.

I have a pro com 30000 btu vent free heater.it keeps shutting off.how do I fix it.


If the thermocouple is bad, the pilot light will not stay lit. Sometimes the pilot will stay lit but when the unit turns on the gas for heat, things change a bit and the nearly bad thermocouple doesn't see the flame it should and causes the gas to shut off.
You can google the make / model of your unit with the word 'thermocouple' and see replacements for sale. Usually not much more than $25. Thermocouple Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

My xbox 360 isnt reading any disk i put in


This is, most likely, an issue with the mechanism that tells the XBOX that there is a disc in the drive. This cannot be fixed without turning the unit in to an authorized repair service.

My RCA Stereo system 5 disc cd drawer keeps opening. When I put a cd in it, the unit opens and keeps opening. It only stays closed when I turn off the unit and manually push it closed. What could be...


These units are actually nice units. There is a "loading belt" inside that controls the tray movement as well as the final "load" of the mechism into the play position. If the load does not complete, the unit will "eject" or open up. This is most often cured by replacing the loading belt. This is a common problem with any rubber component. As it ages, it gets a little slippery and thus will not have the grip to complete the loading sequence. The belt for this will run about $5.

Drive is connected, blue light shows, but it keeps giving a clicking over noise, and cannot read our mac


The click of death - the hard disk inside has suffered a terminal mechanical fault. Sorry, nothing can be done to fix it, it's dead, just junk it and buy a new one.

    Door won't stay closed


    I just had this issue happen to me last week.. fortunately I was standing in my kitchen when it happened... I heard a snap and then a piece fall down the inside of either the door or the front key panel.. I'm assuming this controlled the door locking/oven turning on safety mechanism. The inside light wont go off and it won't turn on to cook.. I am trying to figure out if it's worth paying to fix or just replace the whole unit!? Anyone know if this is fixable by oneself rather than spend a bunch of money on a service technician??

    I have a hard drive 500g wd once i give it power it wont turn on make a noise then shuts off. did i lose all my info??


    If it's an "internal" drive, it's almost dead.
    Ship your drive to a professional (and expensive!) "Data Recovery Service". They can repair your drive, just long enough to copy all your files to a brand-new disk-drive.

    If it's an "external' drive, then:
    * the data-cable is faulty,
    * the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the unit is faulty,
    * the "internal" disk-drive inside the unit is faulty.

    You could try opening-up the unit, extracting the disk-drive, and connecting it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to bypass the possibly-faulty USB-cable and/or USB-adapter.

    Computer shuts down, Restarts runs for a while shuts down, isn't hot. Have run reg. fix,Spy ware programs etc. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 starts for it to stay running. Thank you for your time


    Possibilities:
    * overheating
    * bad RAM, causing Windows to "crash"
    * dying disk-drive, intermittently preventing Windows from being read from the disk-drive
    * dead (seized) fan inside the computer.

    So, the most-likely cure is to:
    * disconnect the AC power
    * remove the battery
    * buy a can of compressed air
    * give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all dust from inside it

    Cd drive


    This has to do with a malfunction in the ejection system in the drive. Sometimes this can be caused by a little dirt or corrosion on the mechanism, however, a majority of the time the problem cannot be fixed and the drive has to be replaced. Start by removing the drive from the machine, taking it apart, and cleaning the inside where the ejection mechanism is. If cleaning doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace it.
