Sounds like the main flex cable that connects everything may have become disconnected. My A1226 does this periodically. The fix for it is to take out the case screws so you can access the logic board. The heat resistant tape (amber tape is probably not sticking anymore. Reconnect the flex cable at the logic board and put a new piece of heat resistant tape on it to hold it. Then replace all the case screws.

SOURCE: Macbook Pro just shuts down

I haveheard of a few issues regarding this. All seem to ppint to heat. Depending on the surrounding environment are you using your Laptop in. Ideal is on a desktop with at least half a foof surrounding it all round. On solution may be to google "SMC Fan control". Get the latest version 2.1.This little utility is simple and user friendly. Install and set your fans to 25%, see what happens. If you still have a problem go to 50% and so on. At least when you are encoding.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: MacBook locked up, won?t close down

The first thing to try is this: It is a keyboard shortcut to shut down a mac laptop. Press the control key (ctrl) at the bottom and press the eject button at the same time (top button all the way to the right which looks like an arrow pointing up with a line under it). This should bring up a window asking if you want to restart, sleep,cancel or shut down. Click Yes to shutdown! If this does not work, here is the second option. Press the power button down on the upper right side,and just hold it down until the computor turns off. I have done this many times with my own computor when it has crashed with no ill effects, I have heard from Apple that it is not good for your computor and can cause problems, so I would only do this if the keyboard short cut does not work Good luck and if you find this helpful please comment!.

How to re sync a ps3 controller


<span> <li> <p>Connect the controller. With your playstation 3 system powered down, connect the mini-USB --- which is the smaller of the two ends on the cord --- to the slot located in the center of the top of the PlayStation 3 controller. The USB end of the cord should then be connected to one of the multiple USB slots located on the front bottom of your PlayStation 3 console.Turn on the PlayStation 3. The console will automatically recognize the connected controller, which you can then use to operate the PlayStation 3. By powering up the console with the controller attached, the two will automatically pair up and sync.Shut off the PlayStation 3. Hold down the P button located in the middle front of the controller until a menu appears on your screen asking you whether you'd like to shut down the PlayStation 3, shut down the controller or cancel. Choose the first option and wait until the console powers down. Disconnect the cord from both the PlayStation 3 and the controller.Turn on the console with the controller. Holding down the P button on the controller, wait until the console powers up and the introduction screen appears. Your controller is now synced with the PlayStation 3 system.Troubleshoot your controller. If the above steps do not work, there is another step to take, according to PlayStation's troubleshooting guide. Straighten out a length of paper clip and then flip your controller over so you are looking at the back of it. There is a small hole in which you can insert the paper clip and reset the controller's settings. Once you do, repeat the steps above to sync your controller to the console.<br /></li><span><br /><br /></span></span>

MacBook Pro is slow when disconnected with electric charging.


First step would be to Reset Your Mac's SMC
The method for resetting your Mac's SMC depends on the type of Mac you have. All SMC reset instructions require shutting down your Mac first. If your Mac fails to shut down, try pressing and holding the power button until the Mac shuts down, which usually takes 10 seconds or so.

Mac portables with user-removable batteries (MacBook and most MacBook Pros):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Disconnect your Mac portable from its MagSafe connector.
3.Remove the battery.
4.Press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds.
5.Release the power button.
6.Re-install the battery.
7.Reconnect the MagSafe connector.
8.Turn your Mac on.
Mac portables with non-user-removable batteries (MacBook Air and some late 2009 MacBook Pro models):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Connect the MagSafe power adapter to your Mac and to a power outlet.
3.On the built-in keyboard (this will not work from an external keyboard), simultaneously press and hold the left shift, control, and option keys while you press the power button. Release all keys at the same time.
4.Press the power button to start your Mac.

Mac desktops (Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug your Mac's power cord.
3.Press and hold the Mac's power button for 15 seconds.
4.Release the power button.
5.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
6.Wait five seconds.
7.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.

Alternative SMC reset for Mac Pro:

If you have a Mac Pro that isn't responding to the normal SMC reset as described above, you can force a manual SMC reset by using the SMC reset button located on the Mac Pro's motherboard.

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug the Mac's power cord.
3.Open the Mac Pro's side access panel.
4.Just below the Drive 4 sled and adjacent to the top PCI-e slot is a small button labeled SMC. Press and hold this button for 10 seconds.
5.Close the Mac Pro's side door.
6.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
7.Wait five seconds.
8.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.
Now that you have reset the SMC on your Mac, it should be back to operating as you expect. If the SMC reset didn't fix your problems, you can try combining it with a PRAM reset. Although the PRAM works differently than the SMC, it can, depending on your Mac model, store a few bits of information that the SMC uses.

IMac 27inch won't boot up


Power issues After ruling out display issues, and if your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps.
  1. Verify you have a good connection from your Mac to the wall outlet by confirming the power cord and adapter are securely connected and plugged in. To check if the wall outlet is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device
  2. If the wall outlet is working and you continue to have no power, try another power cord or adapter if available. If it works you may need a replacement cord or adapter. If you're using a Mac notebook, see Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters for further troubleshooting with MagSafe adapters.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged in to your computer. This includes things like printers, USB hubs, or mobile devices.
  4. Hold down the power button for ten seconds. Then, press the power button again to see if the computer turns on.
  5. Reset the SMC.
  6. If you recently installed memory or a drive in your Mac, make sure it's compatible, supported, and installed correctly. If possible, reinstall the original memory or drive to see if the issue persists afterwards.
  7. If you're still unable to start up your computer after trying each of these steps, visit an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for further diagnosis. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail Store, make a reservation at the Genius Bar using http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/ (available in some countries only).

I just cleared my iphone. It wont boot to the screen where it says to connect to itunes. it starts up with the apple logo, then shows that rotateing thing over the apple logo, then it stops rotateing, and...


To resolve this issue, you will need to restore your iPhone to factory settings This means any data (music, movies, contacts, etc.) will be erased and the iPhone brought back to it's factory settings (like the day you got it).
To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your iPhone is disconnected and powered off. If it's not already, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" message is displayed and swipe to turn off.
2. Connect the USB end of the data cable to your computer, do not connect the other end just yet.
3. Connect the other end of the data cable to the iPhone and immediately press down & hold the "Home" button.
4. Continue to hold down "Home" button , until the iTunes logo appears and the USB connection is displayed on the iPhone's screen.
5. Open iTunes (if it hasn't opened automatically) and a message stating that it has found an iPhone that is in recovery mode. (If you don't get this message and the iPhone just boots like normal, then the timing between connecting the iPhone and holding the home button wasn't fast enough. Try again from step #1).
6. Click the "Restore" button and iTunes will automatically download and install the latest iOS version for your iPhone.
The process should take about 20-45 mins, depending on your internet connection. Once complete, the iPhone will reboot and will be restored to factory settings.
Since iTunes requires that all data be synced through there, if you have made any backups to your iPhone, you'll be able to re-sync your information back to your iPhone at this time.
