98 prelude starting issues

This is a very common problem on Honda vehicles. The security system is known to fail. Basically when you insert your key, the system checks for certain signal. If the system cannot get the correct signal from the key, it assumes the key is incorrect and goes into SECURITY lockout mode. (prevents hotwiring) This has been happening for a long time. There are ways to bypass this now. Read through this page for info, solutions as well.

I have a Nordic Track EXP1000i Treadmill. The

I know it's been months, but, if you still have this problem try this: 1. remove the philips screws holding the motor/belt/electronics cover on: you can lay the whole thing on it's side and remove them from the bottom. there's two in the front and two on the sides.
2. Obviously, unplug the unit! before doing anything. lay the unit back on it's feet (normal position)
3. Find the incline motor assembly. it will be int he middle of everything. black tube thingy.
4. take a cordless drill with a flat head screw driver bit, and turn the incline motor CCW. until the bed is flat.
5. what what I have read, you should shop for a new incline sensor. these fail before the motor does.

Why is the internet connection a fail on the psp

Well for starters you could type where people can read what you are trying to say... but the main reason why it might not be working is because the signal isn't strong enough or it has a WEP key that you need to know... also is the router that you are trying to connect to your router?

My Teac DV-L800 player won't read any pre-recorded movies,the unit makes a whirring noise for a couple of minutes before coming up with read error.However if i put an audio cd in the unit it read this...

The optics are either dirty or are starting to fail. Higher laser power is required to read DVDs. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, the unit will need to have new optics.

DVD player cannot read the disk

Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Cds and VCDs don't require as much laser power to be read correctly. Usually when you can read CDs but not DVDs, the optics are starting to fail.
