I have an old Peavey Transfex Pro 212s that spent several years in storage. It's had the battery-less modification. The unit powers on fine but will not output sound past the preamp.

I am thinking what if the power amp has a separate power supply to the pre-amp. If it does then something in that is causing the problem. If it doesn't then it's something on the power amp board. Perhaps a voltage regulator. If the power amp is a single IC job replace it. Another possible cause is if the volume control is done via a single IC. If that has gone it would cause the strange things that are happening. One thing is certain it's something that both channels pass through the device that is faulty or it effects both channels.

When watching shows on Netflix my screen will act like it's going to sleep and then a box pops up "self test feature check"

If this is a "switching" type of monitor check your settings, and update your drivers in the operating system. You could be having Board problems as well.

If this only happens watching long videos and never in windows I would suspect these things.

I would also suggest turning off your screen saver, and making sure the machine is not set to turn off the monitor after a certain amount of time. If you don't move the mouse in 30 minutes, some software might think the machine is inactive.

My laptop is not starting or boot

BIOS updates have gotten much less risky over time, but things can still go wrong. You need to get your system model number and check the SONY website to ensure that you did in fact install the correct BIOS. This is the most common problem when the BIOS update seems to work, but reboot fails. Some BIOS updates are restricted to certain countries and/or certain sub-models. You may find a procedure that will let you reload the original BIOS and get control of the machine back. If not, you may have what we refer to a "bricked" machine. You can probably send it back for repairs, but they are usually too costly to consider. It may be too late to say this, but I learned a long time ago a good set of rules about BIOS updates:

  1. BIOS updates will not fix hardware problems that pop up - if the old BIOS was working before, the new version won't make things right.
  2. BIOS updates should only be considered if you are upgrading hardware (and in some cases software) and find that the original BIOS does not support it. Ensure that the new one DOES support it before updating.
  3. The golden rule of BIOS updating is.....if the machine ain't broke....don't fix it. A perfectly functional machine will not function more perfectly with different code. The risk isn't worth the some unknown potential benefit.

Are you certain that the DSL signal gets to that point? (House wiring?) Maybe a few specialized telephony hardware tools (checking the line) may help. You likely have land line phone--is that working? At that point?

Have full bars on signal but the no service signal pops up at the same time what could cause this? how do i fix it?

How old is your phone? Mine has been doing the same thing. I turn it off and then back on and it's fine, but there is obviously something wrong. It started right when my phone turned about 2 years old, so I kind of figured it had to do with the age. Does it work for you to turn off and back on?

Will the caster and camber adjustment bolts cause a popping noise while turning. My ball joints are fine, no play in the box hardly, new pitman and idler arm, what else would pop. I have been told the...

Popping noise when turning is usually CV joints. Is this a 4wd? One more thing to check, is your sway bar bolts, as they can break off, or wear grooves on them, and pop as they have pressure put on them. If the popping noise is something that happens once, and not a continuous thing when you're turning, most of the time it's ball joints though. Did you replace them? How did you check them? Easy way to tell, is to jack the wheel up, and if it slides out slightly when it gets ready to clear the pavement, then you're almost certain it is ball joints.

Turned on computer screen had black background with yellow lines.Then turned off turned on said no signal

certainly graphics card related, and usually means that the graphics card has become unreponsive. Likely causes include:

- Overheating.
- Overclocking.
- Insufficient Power
- Hardware failure. .

I would not mess with the hardware fix, but instead try this "soft" fix:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
