The pcb controller needs the info transferred from the original pcb otherwise the drive will remain inaccessible or destroy the data on the drive. Take it to a professional.

HP LaserJet P2055dn just writes initializing and doesn't go to ready state.and both leads are blink. so what can i do?

Sounds like it either needs the firmware reflashing via hp website, or the formatter PCB is bad, try to download the firmware from HP website 1st, if that doesnt work it will need a new pcb.

What is causing the screen light of my nokia 3110c to flicker and go off?

Possible that the back light LED drive is faulty. This is possible if there was moisture within the board and haas damaged the tracks. Also if the PCB has a faulty LED drive to this circuit or a power supply issue to this section.
USe a magnification lens to look and check for faulty solder or tracks.
Get help if not equipped.

I just need a new motherboard for my Western Digital WD20EADS external hard drive...

Its PCB, or printed circuit board.
You can find one, do a google search but remember:


So very carefully note down:
Firmware and MDL

Example of firmware details recorded:
Western Digital MDL: WD2000BB-16DWA0
MDL: WD2000BB This indicates the Model Number of the Drive and Memory Cache BB Meaning 2MB there are also JB for 8MB and so on... this needs to be the same if you are ordering parts.
Firmware: 16DWA0 This is reference to the hard drives firmware number, this can be used for a PCB Swap but if unsuccessful you will need to contact a professional data recovery with the means of firmware recording and or firmware replacement

Good luck!

When I turn on my skyfi3 it goes to detecting sd card and lockes up from that point on

Press and hold volume up and power button at the same time to do a reset and to power down. You need to update firmware from the XM website to your unit and then do a master reset. contact Delphi by phone for deatailss lon how to reset and update firmware. Do not use a card larger than 2GB either.

Firmware upgrade

Firmware Upgrade Instructions:
Please download and unzip the firmware file to computer's local hard drive and then follow the instructions in the "readme.txt" file to upgrade the firmware.

Warning : -
Firmware upgrade failure may permanently damage the unit and causing it not to function. If the issues in the "Release Note" do not address the problem you are experiencing, please do not upgrade the firmware. Never upgrade the firmware using a wireless connection. Firmware upgrade will reset the Router to factory default state (all current settings will be replaced by default settings). When necessary, please write down the Router's current settings before performing the firmware upgrade. Please do not load the previously saved Router "configuration file" to the new firmware.

If you need assistance performing the firmware upgrade or if you have any questions, please contact our Techsupport Team
