Question about FixYa Service

FixYa rank not updated

Even though I've answered a couple of questions (11 up to now), my rank isn't moving. I'm still an apprentice when I am supposed to be a master. The question total changes, but it takes time to update when I add a new solution.

    Dear afroxav , I believe you have to give solutions to the first 30 before you will see a move on your becomeing next step up ,but in the mean time..., I thought after a certain amount of time you were atomatically given a FIXYA vote with the understanding it could be taken back if the rateing finally came in from source at a later date?? This would make sense for those clients who are not serious about rating us and we are not out there working for nothing. Please clarify Staff and by the way please Rate. Thank You

Seems like lots of these questions that haven't been answered are more than just a few years old. Why doesn't someoen go though the questions and bring them up to date. I have.. but seems just everyon


Hi Allen,

You'd be surprised how many people you would be helping even by answering old questions. Some people may have the same issue even if the question was asked some time ago.

I also see older questions, but if possible I still answer them to help anyone that might have the same issue.

Welcome to Fixya and I hope that helps to clarify.

Frigidare affinity error code E23


Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Frigidaire Affinity ATF6000 series washer with an error code E23, correct ?
If that is indeed the error code you receive in the display it is potentially bad news unfortunately, as that indicates either loose wire (fingers crossed) or a failed drain pump relay on the control board. This is how it is described in the Frigidaire service tech manual.
macmarkus_1089.jpg

Further to this, if it is not a loose wire at the pump or on the control, the only remedy is to replace the control board, unless you are proficient at electronic repairs (including soldering techniques) and can purchase an exact relay and replace just the relay...though that doesn't guarantee the control hasn't suffered collateral damage in the process.
A new control is part #134523106...
it is available at several on-line parts vendors such as "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple as these links will provide.

Hope this answers your question and helps you move forward. Let me know how you make out or if anything isn't clear. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa today.

I dont beleive i cannot attain a 80% answer rate and keep it.I think fixya wants me to answer these problems and not put me on the leaderboard--I have answered genuinely and without a fee for around 640...


Though I can understand your frustration, I am sure it is through no fault of the FixYa staff. I too struggle with keeping an 80% answer rate, even though I answer both genuinely and in description, and even follow up with the people who rate me poorly or comment back. For what it's worth, I find that I have a higher chance of getting a thumbs up from someone who answers the question after me rather than the original asker.

Though this truly isn't a solution to your problem, my best advice is to simply keep trying, and hope for the best. Good luck my friend!

I have a problem - everytime I save a game, it "freezes" even though the system is still moving. I've got an EDGE game card aquired from Asia a year ago. I'd be happy if you could tell me...


Hi Japan fan,

It sounds like you updated your iEDGE card to the iEDGE 1.4.3 firmware that Nintendo released for the DSi and DSi XL a while back. It's quite probable that your iEDGE isn't updated, and then you updated your console which will cause the iEDGE to not work.

Take a look at this site for a bit more information:

iEDGE Not Working on Firmware 1.4.3 DSi Version

iEDGE Production Shortage in September 2011

I'd recommend getting a card with a team behind it that has a little more support. Names that come to mind include the Supercard DSTWO, Acekard 2i and Cyclo DS iEvolution, all of which are pretty top quality cards with frequent-ish firmware updates.

I personally shop at DSCardWorld.com but if you live outside of the U.S. then NDS-Gear.com is likely to be your best bet for an authorised retailer where you don't run the risk of picking up a knock-off fake card.

Hope I've helped, and please upvote my answer if I have! :-)

I solved the problem, by tipping the dishwasher back about 45degrees, I think this re-adjusted the flood sensor, and it is now working fine. Thank you

Just registering how do i get 10 pounds


Answer questions successfully until you progress to Wiz or Guru rank.

Download the FixYa livechat utility and install it.

You'll then get invite to answer livechat or premium questions which you can earn up to $10 (not £10) for each successful solution.

Afterwards you must answer fifty free unsolved questions a month to retain your premium expert status.

See http://www.fixya.com/ExpPayFAQ.aspx for full details.

The important point is that you don't get paid for doing nothing, nor do you get paid if all you give are useless (or even mostly useless) answers.

I hope this has helped you, if so please return the favour by rating my answer.

DNS Error 80710102


This is a really annoying bug that’s present even in the current version (2.10 as of this post) of the Playstation 3 system software. When I got my PS3 earlier this month, it was using the oldest version, 1.10, but I couldn’t update it because the DNS error was preventing me from getting online.
After searching online for that error number, I came across a few sites that said the PS3’s DNS server needs to match that of your router. I made the appropriate changes to the PS3 and off I went. There was still a problem, though: it wouldn’t login to the Playstation Network, even though it passed the DNS test. Augh.
Some of the more silly answers I found included resetting your modem, calling your provider, telling the PS3 to automatically find all settings, and turning off your firewall. None of these make any difference.
The only option I had left was to download the update to a USB flash drive. This is a poor solution because not everyone HAS a flash drive. (You could probably do this using the 80 gig model’s card reader, though I wouldn’t know about that.) Anyway, here is a simplified version of the directions I followed:
1. Make a new directory in the flash drive named PS3, then one named UPDATE (both must be in all caps).
2. Save PS3UPDAT.PUP to /PS3/UPDATE
3. Plug the flash drive into the console, then from the XMB: Settings -> System Update -> Update via Storage Media
After this is done, you can delete the stuff you created on the flash drive.
Now, you’re using the most recent software and it still keeps giving you DNS errors? The only solution I’ve found so far is to keep trying to login until it works. That may sound like a shitty answer, but it’s the only one I’ve found that works with any certainty. After searching for a good amount of time and trying every suggestion, brute force is the most dependable answer I found.
Update: I’ve been using OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220) for a couple of weeks now with little luck, but some people say it helps.
Update 2: I solved the mystery: spanning tree. Spanning Tree Protocol is a protocol for preventing loops in a network of switches. I had to turn on spanning-tree portfast on the port my PS3 is plugged into. Chances are this solution is completely unhelpful for most people, but I’m putting it up here anyway, just in case.
