SOURCE: AVIC-N2 stopped working and wont stop flashing PLEASE HELP!

Sound like the ribbon cable because before breaking off completely the vibration of the engine can cause current to fade in and out(open and close circuit).

SOURCE: AVIC-N1 opens to blanks screen and none of buttons work

It is probably the ribbon cable that you can see when the screen closes. This is a known problem and the part is sometimes hard to find. But is available.

SOURCE: Blank screen - but radio working

When park the car in the hot weather condition, the unit turn off by the thermostat to protect it from overheating. Once the unit is cool, restart the unit should resolve the problem. If not, disconnect the power from the unit and wait for 15 second before reconnect. Good luck.

The car start, run ,and you can turn it off it take about 30min. Before it start back up.

Consider replacing the crankshaft positioning sensor. A crank sensor is an electronic device used in an internal combustion engine to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft. This information is used by engine management systems to control ignition system timing and other engine parameters.
The simplest and most obvious symptom of a failing crankshaft position sensor is the blinking "check engine" light in your car.
According to Do It "When the crankshaft position sensor begins to fail, the signal it transmits to the vehicle's computer begins to weaken. If left unattended, the signal will switch off completely. This, in turn, causes the car's spark plugs to die out, killing the engine. If you are having problems starting your car, it could indicate bad crankshaft position sensor".

Of course this may NOT be YOUR problem, but it sounds like it could be, doesn't it?

Processor fan runs really fast and I have nothing that shows on my monitor when I turn it on. My Video card is good. Any ideas?

When the power first turns on, the fan runs at maximum speed. Then when the motherboard starts up the speed drops and you see the splash screen, the POST information, etc. Your board isn't starting for some reason. You may have a power supply issue, something attached to the board (drives, expansion cards) may be holding the board down, or RAM that isn't working. Try clearing the CMOS memory and see if the board starts normally. Then disconnect everything except the power supply and front panel connectors, remove any expansion cards, take out the RAM and turn the power on. You should hear the beep error (usually a long beep) indicating "RAM not found". If you don't, the power supply or the motherboard itself is likely at fault. Otherwise you can begin reinstalling parts beginning with the RAM. Restart after you reinstall each piece, and if one of those is at fault the problem will come back and you'll know which part is responsible.

I have installed an AVIC-X-920BT into a 2000 Toyota 4-Runner. Once installed, not all of the ICONS are available - example address entry on GPS (however, POI icons, etc. are lit). Any thoughts?

I think you have it hooked up correctly, but I would say that if some icons are missing, the signal may not be getting to the unit for the respective icons.

My ps3 has stopped turning on. The light turns to green, the console begins to start up, then it flashes yellow, beeps and goes to red.

My PS3 had the same problems. I found that if I disconnected the HDMI cable and installed the cable with the 3 phone jacks, Red,Yellow, and White, that it came on and has been playable since. Before that I got the YLOD, red screen display, pressed the on button for 3 beeps and got the reset. That worked for about 30min then went to a blank screen. Gave up and was ready to send it to the shop, but then as a last resort I connected the other cable and it has worked ever since. Must have been in the HDMI cable.
