There's too man different variables and things that could be causing your problem to diagnose it and simply say "You need to replace x part of the machine"

You would need to disassemble the machine and physically test multiple things to find the problem and THEN replace the part.

Nobody online can do this diagnosis for you.

Use the troubleshoot menu.
Hold the Power on button while it is in standby.
You will hear 1 beep.
After 5-10 second you will hear a second beep.
1-3 seconds after this you will hear 2 more beeps.

You will then be asked to connect your controller via usb and press the ps button.

This will give you the troubleshoot menu. One or more options in these screens may solve your problem.

I suggest sending it to sony support and have them repair/replace it for you, however this will cost £80 if you are no longer within their 1 year warranty.
Any hardware sold by stores in the UK is covered by a 3 year warranty as part of your statutory rights. If you take it back to the store they will try to say it's not their problem anymore.

Point out your statutory right, and threaten to go to trading standards. This is usually enough to get a replacement there and then.

If all else fails, here's a useful disassembly guide:

04 KIA SORENTA ac coolant fan stays on even if when car is shut off....

There has been known promblem with the 03- early 05 sorento of radiator fan staying on even after engine is turn off, it is claim to be a electrical malfuction in the engine termalstat. However you may just need to check your coolant level and fill it up as there is also a promblem to the sorento's having a leaking radiator coolant resevior too. Pretty much I own a 03 sorento, and it has been nothing but promblem, but glad I got rid of it. However like I said, check your coolant level, and fill it up with 50/50 coolant to recommended level. Should be able to solve the promblem, since it seems your engine is lacking coolant and is overheating, and the fan turn on automatic even after you have shut of your car to help cool it down.

Externalseagate 250go not open how to solve

If you cannot open or see the harddrive when you connect it to your computer after it is powered on then that is the external harddrive itself. First, check if the power connection is connected and the usb cord connect correctly. Then see if any lights come on on the external hard drive. If lights does come on and still nothing showing or coming on to the computer, then your harddrive is history. Seagate makes one of the worstest hardrive. You can google this up about seagate promblem and there are thousand out there who have this same promblem. I know this because I have the same promblem you have.

Hello. I have a 74 TX 750 and I too have had problems with it.

I bought a new battery for mine. It was sold dry and I had to add the acid, top it off with distilled water and give it a good charge.

One problem that you will have is that the push button control will oxidize and lose a suitable contact and also the casing for which it is housed will also oxidize. What you have to do is take that right hand control casing apart all the while being careful and remembering how the cable goes and then clean up those metal surfaces. I did this and it started like new afterwords.

Also, make sure that the battery ground wire is clean and connected well to the frame. Mine was corroded and had to be cleaned up.

Also, the cable connection on the starter may also be loose. Take that little cover on the top of the starter off, then remove the starter wire, inspect, clean it then put it all back.

There are few sites that house great info on these bikes, you just have to dig.

Hope it helps

Take the DVD disk to Hastings. Tell them to clean it, it will cost you about 3.00. Bring it back. If it does not work, you have a defective disk, take it back and exchange it.

Hope this helps
