After a piece of gyprock fell on top of the washing machine, it now no longer has any power.

as its a front loader
a few things can happen

i think you need to take the top off the machine

and using the plug for the mains

and a DVM meter {cheep } use ohms setting like 20 or beep or both

and then from the plug follow the mains from the plug
to the supply inside the machine

examine where the cable goes in etc
look for 'open circuit ' lines

if the two likes connected accross from mains in to inside
doesnt beep the wire is disconnected
L N should power on lines enable

your shure to track it down this way ...
machine dont have internal fuses
i think its a chopped cable cracked board or loose plug

rule out the obvious and what ever left must be the truth

it could have even just knocked off a plug on the main controller.....pcb

Power button pushed troughand fell it to the case, tv wont turn on power

Sounds like something came loose inside, the button falls in when the circuit board comes loose or breaks. You have to open the unit up and see what is broken or loose...

It wont turn on, it wont charge, Power Supply? how to fix it?

It's broke. Would probably cost more to fix it then to buy a new one.
If you are so inclined though, you can try opening up and see if you can find something loose.

Xbox360 screen wont show

If it's under 3 years old and you've never opened it up then Microsoft(1-800-4MY-XBOX) will fix it under warranty. Otherwise you'll need to do the x-clamp fix. I've used the kit from to fix this problem for a friend. Good luck

Rings of death

the "3 rings of death" or the so called "3 red lights" is actually caused by GPU overheating and mainboard flexing. When you need to do is open your xbox360 (warning, this will void your warranty) add more cooling fan inside your xbox360, you'd want to use 80mm fans coz they fit perfectly. you can fit up to two 80mm fans inside your xbox360.

Also, if you notice that your xbox360's mainboard is warped you need to fix this by disconnecting all the connections from the board. then place the board on a flat surface. then use a hair drier to heat the board and flat it out. its kinda complicated. hehe, at least you now have an idea on whats causing the 3 red lights...

I just fixed mine. No ring or external sounds following a short drop. Found a loose internal header on the back, right side of the phone.

Remove back.
Remove battery.
Remove SIM.
Remove 4 screws (note will void warranty)
Starting from top, carefully de-attach rear plastic cover.
Inspect. Header on right side as you look at the back of the phone has black/white wire going to speaker.
Re-install in reverse order.

Crazy phone still works great!

89 mustang door wont open from the outside.

i think i would spray it again instead of wd40 get some P.B. Blaster works 10x better for loosening rusty try that since it worked before. you can get P.B. Blaster at walmart or parts stores.

Red lights games wont load

Hi calleyne

Im going to take a huge guess here and say your problem resides with the xbox360 and the three red lights on the ring of light around the power button,

ok there are 2 options you can take,

one, you can call Microsoft for a repair box, the good thing about it is now they will still repair it if its out of warranty, the bad part about it is they charge $100 and it can take some time before you get another 360 from them,

two, you can open the xbox360 yourself and see whats wrong on the inside, **note that even if you do this you can still do option one** the main things you can check are the processor, heat sinks, the disk drives, and the gpu and the heat sink on top of it, i found that what was causing my first xbox360 to get the red ring was the heat sink over the processor was touching and was causing it to get super hot, but really all you should have to do is lift the heat sink off the processor and put some liquid coolant like you would on a pc and place it back, thats what i did at least.

Hope that helps ^-^
