A voltmeter and/or oscilliscope can tell you if the p/s is dead. If the +5 volt line is dead, the VCR will certainly be dead also. A visual inspection of the power supply section might find bulged electrolytic capacitors, and immediately give diagnosis.

You might succeed with repairs by just replacing these parts in the p/s. Capacitors are low cost- often less than $2.00 each. I use the Panasonic FC series available from Digi-Key for supply lines, and NHG or two in certain other areas.

A schematic would be helpful as Wolf states, but not always necessary in a dead power supply repair.

You have to do is find a schematic for the power supply and replace every capacitor in it. Particularly the starting cap. this is tedious awful work and with the replacement value so low, but ok that's it.

My ignis washing machine stops in the middle of the washing cycle and makes a sound, kind of blowing.


there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.

Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses.
The most common cause of a washing machine not taking any water in is either a kinked fill hose or the tap becoming faulty whereby you switch it on but the valve inside doesn't turn. Another common cause is the tap getting accidentally switched off and people not realising. Other causes can be wiring faults, water valve faults or programme control faults. This advice was originally written when most washing machines were hot and cold fill and didn't have error codes. It's now been updated to reflect the fact that these days the vast majority of washing machines are cold fill only and should give an error code if they can't take in water.
If your washing machine is stuck full of water the water needs to be drained out and this article gives tips on how to do this. If the entire washing machine has gone dead leaving the machine full of water it may be worth checking that it isn't something as simple as a blown fuse ( Washing machine is dead, wont start ) in which case if you get the washer going again it should pump the water out itself.

If the washing machine appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water then the possible causes (in the most likely order) are a blockage somewhere, a pump failure, or an electrical fault stopping the pump from running.

Blockages are the more likely explanation, but pumps can fail.

Washer will not drain or spin


Hi.

The machine does not spin in consequence of the drain problem. The timer will not advance to spin until the pressure switch detects that the drain part of the cycle is complete.

Common faults causing the problem are drain lines blockage and faulty pressure switch. Sometimes the pressure switch can be unlocked by cleaning the tube attached to the switch or blowing into the tube.

See:My washing machine does not drain.

To find parts and diagrams for your appliance see:Where do I find parts and diagrams?

If you need to contact a qualified technician ring the number listed on the owners manuals or see:How to get in contact with a qualified technician?

Regards.

One vcr is about 2yrs old the other almost new one is a magnavox the other a philips they are both eating tapes not evetytime but alot of the time.I want to copy my tapes onto dvd but afraid I will ruin...


The problem is that both machines may have the same fault, or different faults.
Eating tapes is common and multi faults can cause it. Some of the most common are errors in unloading from around the head. The capstain roller being worn. This often shows in a crinckle cut effect on the tape.
The only way to know is to take the top off and see it doing the damage. You can use a old tape for this purpose.
The most common problem is mode switch failure, this means that the video doesn't know what position it's in, hence the tape damage. However fitting a new one is very hard as the entire mechanism has to be set up right.
You might have a better chance of getting the more recent video repaired as the parts will still be around.
If you have a look at it doing the deed, then describe it here on FixYa, an expert might be able to pin it down for you.

My hp 500 screen blank


The first thing to do is connect an external monitor to the external video connector since you can't troubleshoot what you can't see. If you aren't sure of whether your computer has started you can press the CAPS Lock key off and on to see if the indicator lights up. If the external monitor displays for you then use your Fn keys to switch between external and internal monitor. Control Panel's Device Manager will tell you if there is a monitor or video card fault. If the external monitor doesn't work then internal video adaptor is disconnected or dead. Another option is to connect your S3 video to a TV or DVD player. Some typical faults are a burned out CCD bulb in the LCD module, a ribbon connector bad or disconnected from the mobo to the LCD and a motherboard fried from spilling your drink onto the keyboard. Opening the the laptop is bad juju if you aren't qualified to put it back together but you can get service procedures if the computer is out of warranty and care to try.

Washing machine tripping everything in the house


Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
motor
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!

No power to washing machine


If this machine is totally dead and it tripped your home electrics - (which is probably a 30amp fuse) means that it is likely a serious fault in the machine. :-(

Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the washers heater unit,motor or suppressor. Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments. The flash you saw was probably some sensitive electronics and any smaller internal fuse popping. It is possible that simply replacing internal fuse will result in doing more damage once power is restored.
