With Sony camcorders, if there is an error, it will display an error code on the LCD screen, usually flashing. Make a note of it, search for your model number and the error code and you can most likely find the solution.

I just had My GL2 serviced the only problem I've really had with it is dirty heads! I use it to video our High School football games! Got it back and now the vcr will not work won't play or rewind...

The selector switch may be out of time. A plastic gear may have come loose from the shaft it's mounted to. A thorough inspection is necessary to find the failed part.

My computer won't turn on, it just has a blinking dash on the left hand side I've tried turning it off and on multiple times and nothing will work I have an assigment due at the end of this week...

while the computer is turning on push the escape key and try selecting the harddrive
if it doesn't start to boot into windows then your boot record is probably corrupt you can try fixing it by running chkdsk /r on your OEM reinstall disc that came with the computer, seeing as you have a netbook you will need a external cd rom
