Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

Open Question

I have and older cougar valley dartboard SM model that made a humming sound when I turned it on. Now it does nothing, what could it be?

I was playing a game on it and decided I had enough and shut it down. About 1 minute later I decided to play again and that's when the humming came followed by nothing.

SOURCE: Nintendo DS Lite shuts down after holding down B-button

I believe this is a common problem
possibly a manufacturing fault (although I doubt Nintendo would admit to it).

See my other post: "DS Shutting Down"

I have two that have been well looked after and both are doing the same thing.
Both purchased around Dec '06

It's not the battery, so don't post saying that.
I've already tested with a new battery and also put my battery into a friends DS Lite where it worked perfectly.

Definately something to do with the buttons, as you can play stylus based games for ages without any problems. (eg: Mahjong)

Anyone who repairs these might know what the actual problem is. I'm guessing Nintendo just swap the main board or replace the unit. Unfortunately mine are both just out of the 12month warranty.

SOURCE: ps3 makes loud humming sound while playing blu-ray movies

Try messing with some the of the BD settings.


Let me know if this helps.

I can't say exactly which one you need to change and don't worry about messing anything up, you can always just change them back.

Let me know which one fixes your problem.

Best of luck!

SOURCE: xbox 360 shuts down on its own

This is a built in temperature overheating contermeasure. Make sure your xbox is not in an enclosed area or on a carpet. If posssible, place a fan next to it and see if that gets you increased playtime. If it does, then you know its a problem with it overheating.

Is this only playing a specific game? Every Game? Demos? Listening to Music? Watching Dvds?

Playing a game puts the most stress on the 360.

SOURCE: won't power on or eject game. solid red light on-won't do anything else

Hmm. I'm not quite sure exactly what the problem is, but if your playstation doesn't turn at all when you flip the back switch it means your harddrive is probably fried.

Where can I buy an electronic dartboard online?

This depends greatly on what features you want in your dartboard. If you like playing a certain game of darts then you need to ensure that the board your buying has that game built in as one of the options. I have a few sites for you; nevertheless I strongly advise you do some shopping around of your own.

Have an older Lowrey organ with loud hum.

Of course it is repairable.

Find a competent repair person. You did not describe the "noise". If it is 60 cycle hum, the filter caps need replacing. If it is an organ tone, then probably a key contact is stuck.
