I found my 1980 dead several weeks ago with a tape inside. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, for about 5 seconds, it sounds like it is powering up normally. The power light comes on, then the unit goes dead again. I removed cover, managed to carefully remove the tape. Figured I'd have to repair it. Put the cover back on and it began working normally. Tonight, it is doing the same thing again. Any suggestions?

Re: dead, plug in, powers up, goes dead
This is the typical way that drive belt problem occur. The
mechanism needs some slip to accomodate the changing reel speeds as the
tape plays, but if it slips too much, the reels don't move at all, the
processor thinks there is a problem and turns off.
Time for a belt job.

This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a
surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,
etc...anything, this will happen. You plug it back in, the power comes on, but it appears dead. The problem is with the AC adapter,
not the Wii itself.
There is a circuit inside the AC adapter
that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge
protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the
outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.
Unlpug it from
the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10
minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit
time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 5
or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up, and it should work.
1. Unplug dryer.
2. Remove 2 screws from rear top of dryer.
3. Lift panel assembly up, taking care to not pull wires.
4. Check plugs on circuit board for panel display. Press each one firmly, but carefully.
5. Put back together, plug in, turn on.
I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.
Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.
According to Nintendo u can try this. 1. push the reset button and if that doesn't work unplug all cords and memory cards (including sd) from wii and unplug av from the wii and the outlet in wall. Wait 2-3 min and then plug it back in. Thats as far as i got because that fixed my problem hope this helps someone!!!
