Then again, the 580 does NOT have a variable speed feature, so you comment is quite useless, soundadvize.

It's too late for davidlandon, but for anyone else reading .... as long as it isn't working, there is no harm in taking off the cover and seeing what is keeping the spindle from turning.

If you can fix it - great! If you cannot - recycle it responsibly.

They are fairly common on eBay, if you want to replace it.

The culprit on Sony's variable-speed playback units is often the variable speed control itself. Once this goes, there's little that can be done other than Sony repair. And given the age of this product, you may be better off replacing it.

Amp turns on but puts out no sound except for faint noise which dies out after a few seconds.


It sounds like a defective/incorrect AC-to-DC adapter may have caused your problem. These adapter come with different output voltages, AC or DC output and different amperage ratings. AC-to-DC adapters list the polarity of the DC voltage as it relates to the DC power plug and you must match both the devices voltage and power requirements. As for the amp...not working on batteries either, I would suspect output transistors or IC.

You could try another battery.But if another battery doesn't work,sorry mate I think it's dead.In future make sure you only use what you know is compatible,also NEVER try to run the PSP with the AC adaptor without the battery in.The PSP safety and support booklet states: Do not use the PSP system with the AC Adaptor when the Battery Pack is not inserted in the system.If the AC Adaptor is disconnected suddenly,it may result in damage to the system.

If it is the motherboard that's burnt out I think you can replace it but they're expensive I think,I saw one for a PSP1000 for

I have a sony tc-186sd (taperecorder). At the back there is a LINE IN/OUT L & R.Can i add a laptop at line in and speakers to line out L & R?


Simple answer: yes.

More detail, start with recorder volume input and laptop output settings no higher than 50% so you minimize the risk of distorting the audio. Use a quality, commercially recorded audio file as a set-up source (because it will have more consistent recording levels).

Also, the speakers will have to be "powered" because the LINE OUT level is not strong enough to drive speakers.

My sony vaio vgn-fs285e will not switch on since this morning. Even if the AC adapter is plugged-in it still won't come on. None of the lights come on, it won't run with the battery pack or just AC power....


Hi,
To check if the problem is the power adaptor or the Vaio, just have a look at the charger itself and see if the green light on the adaptor itself is on?If yes, then more likely it is working fine. If no light, change the fuse in the plug and try again.
You can also try a static discharge on the Vaio. Please remove all external devices, unplug the adaptor and remove the battery. Put your finger on the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Then connect the power adaptor again and try to boot.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly


If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

Erratic Touchpad on Toshiba M50 Notebook


if the touchpad is working fine with the battery and if it is not working with the ac adaptor then in this case u can try with the different ac adaptor and still if it does the same thing then uninstall and resintall the toouchpad driver and restart the computer and still if it does so with the ac adaptor then u need to open the laptop chasis and then u need to fix up the power supply connector in the motherboard where the power supply from the ac adaptor is not getting the adequate response from motherboard.

Lap top problem


Hi

If the AC power light is blinking, try the following steps:

1 Cut off power to the computer by disconnecting the AC adaptor and removing the battery. The error condition will be interrupted, and the AC power light will stop flashing.

2 Put the battery back into the computer. Do not connect the AC adaptor. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the AC adaptor may be
defective and will need to be replaced. If the AC power light starts flashing, remove the battery, and continue with the steps below.

3 Connect the AC adaptor to the computer. Leave the battery out of the computer. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the battery may need charging, may be depleted, or may be defective. Turn the computer on, insert the battery, and then leave the computer running for several hours, which will deliver a slow, steady “trickle-charge” to the battery. Once the battery has been trickle-charged, it may begin working correctly again. If the trickle-charging does not prove effective, consider replacing the battery with a new one.

4 Connect the AC adaptor to a different power outlet, preferably in a different room. If the computer starts normally, there may be a problem with the AC outlet itself, or the voltage level available from it.

5 Verify that the AC adaptor is the correct unit for your computer model. The computer may not be able to start from an AC adaptor that is rated for less current (amperage) than the computer requires, even if the rated voltage is correct, and the plug fits correctly in the DC-IN socket. The labels on the bottom of the computer and the AC adaptor show the specifications for voltage ("V") and current ("A") for each device. The voltage level must match exactly. The amperage rating of the AC adaptor must be equal to or greater than that required by the computer
