SOURCE: i need firmware for Western Digital WD Caviar Blue

If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.

try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule the task on restart then defragment your hard drive

MCS 95 SUBWOOFER WON'T POWER ON..REPLACED FUSE WHAT ELSE TO TRY


Concerning the Boston Suwoofer not powering up, I just had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it.

1. Uplug the unit
2. Remove the outer screws and remove the board unit
3. Unplug the board (Power Board) that is connected to the switch and unplug the two connectors that connect to the amp.
4. Remove the 4 screws(on the front panel side not the nuts on the board)
5. Look at the switching diode (labeled #1) directly beside the transistor cooling plate, if the board around this transistor is burnt there is a good chance that the diode is fried. If you do not trust your eye you can measure across the positive and negitave of the diode with your multi-meter (on the diode check setting) and you should read ~.565 and you should read infinity if you swap the leads. If the diode reads ~.667 and you can read this taken across any polarity the switching diode is fried.
6. If the diode is fried go to radio shack
7. Purchase a 1N914-1N4148 Switching Diode. Cost about $1.36.
8. Go home de-solder the fried diode.
9. Solder in the new Diode. ***Pay ATTENTION to put the new diode in the exact way the old one came out!!*** If you do not get the polarity correct the diode will not work properly and your unit will not power up. Also, it is a good idea to leave ~ 1/8" between the diode and the board, this will help disipate heat the cause of the problem to begin with.
10. Place power Board back on the backside of the front panel
11. Install 4 screws(on the front panel side not the nuts on the board)
12. Plug the board (Power Board) that is connected to the switch and plug the two connectors that connect to the amp.
13. Place the panel back onto the subwoofer and secure it with the screws. You can use a screw gun for this just make sure to turn you tourqe level back to ~3 otherwise you could strip out the screw and or the particle board.
14. Plug it in and your rolling.

I hope I am not to late and this works out for you. I just fixed mine tonight.

I have a panasonic th-42px80u, i turned it on and there was a pop and a flash from the back of the tv. It will not power up and have no red light. ive taken apart and inspected power supply board for burn...


Look for a fried (possibly exploded) transistor or diode on the power supply board. In particular, look at the transistor mounted on a heat sink (metal radiator block) between the fuse and the largest transformer on the board. It may also have a damaged regulator chip driving it. Modern TV sets operated by remote controls generally have the power supply split into two sections - standby and main. Your problem is most likely in the main section.

A voltage sniffer won't tell you much - most sets have power right up to the fuse on the power supply board. If the fuse is blown, don't bother replacing it until you find out what blew it - you'll just waste another fuse. I generally start by doing ohmmeter checks (power disconnected!) on the diodes and transistors - anything reading less than 1 Ohm is probably fried or is being shorted through a transformer winding by another fried component. Other readings must be interpreted according to the circuit design.

My asus dvd combo cannot read/write onto dvd disc,


try a reinstallation of your burning software if this fails to solve it , its most likely the burning laser diode has blown ( theres a burning ( writing diode ) and reading diode ) , theres no repair if thats the case

My ps3 wont play blu ray movies or games but cds and dvds work fine


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.

Check What Resolution You Have Saved On the PS3 Maybe When It goes Blu-Ray Its To High Res For The Standard TV..
if you felt i have spent my time to help you... a very helpful rating is appreciated for answering ur query...

Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

CD DVD drive won't read application disks like Photoshop, Vegas


Either they put in a bad mother board or damaged yor DVD drive. Maybe they even put in the wrong unit. In any case I'd send it back to them.

That would be the BluRay diode in the laser assembly. There are 2 diodes that emit the light for the laser. One is red which reads everything but BluRay and PS3 games. The purple laser diode reads the BluRay and PS3 discs. You will need to have the laser replaced or call Sony to get a box to send it in for repair or replacement. Thanks!!
