I was playing for like 3 hrs and turned off by it self and then I try to turn it back on and it did but it shut down at the same time


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

How do I put batteries in a gardner bender circuit alert voltage sensor


On my GDT 3200 you had to pry and force the black padded case off of it. There is no instructions how to put the batteries in, and I nearly broke the meter taking off the case. Just try to force that case off of there. Hand strength combined with frustration and anger will help in that step. Once the black armored case is off, it's self explanatory. There's two screws on the back that come out and the red unit splits in two. Install the batteries and put it back together.

I just bought my camera and the batery ran out,


get rechargable batteries and a charger, you will not have that happen near as often, regular batteries do not last long at all a few pics kills them. rechargable batteries last much much longer and you just recharge them over night, pop back in.. sum other batteries don't hold a charge, may try it in something else, see if its bad

My dacor oven model ECS130SBK is very slow to heat. Sometimes reaching the desired temp. after a long wait. Sometimes it never gets there.


I found the bottom element was not getting any power by using a volt/ohmmeter and a test method described elsewhere. (Shut off power, hold down COOK TIME while turning on power. then within 30 seconds press each mode you want to test and only that element/fan/etc will turn on. Cancels by itself after 30 sec.)


I traced the wire back to the relay (wire checked good) and there was no power getting through the relay although it clicked. Removed the relay board to replace it and found a cold solder joint on the "out" terminal with obvious past arcing carbon. Cleaned and soldered the pin and the oven now works normally.
WHY THE SLOW TO HEAT? The oven turns on all the elements to preheat faster and when it reaches your set temp it beeps and now only turns on the element you selected to maintain the temperature. (Bake or Convection) Our malfunctioning ovens would then cool since the element is not working properly and it must go back into preheat and keep cycling.
BY THE WAY- Don't ever use 4 hours on self clean it kills the boards and/or display. I also put a house fan in front of the oven and blow it into the lower grill to take away some of the heat on the two boards. Learned the hard way!

Hi,
I found that most digital cameras are fussy. They need the right type of battery. Try using energiser rechargables. They last longer and are the cheapest that work. Don't bother with cheap batteries they don't work.

Turning off on its own


Can you check the power cable is connected correctly and that the battery has sufficient power - laptops running on their batteries just switch off when the batteries are coming to the end of their useful life. E.g the batteries last bit of charge is not sufficient to warn the user that the laptop is shutting/needs to shut down.

My canon digital IXUS 60 is not working. It was going fine and then I turned it around to take a self portrait and clicked the button when i lokked back at the screen it was blank and i haven't been able...


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the display button which turns your LCD display on and off (to save batteries). Turn on your camera, and press the DISP button once in the lower left corner.
