If the fan start to increase in speed rapidly till
it's at full speed with in 3-5 min the G.P.U has lost
it's thermal seal to the heat sink .Some time if
the unit take a fall this can break that seal .

if the seal broke on the C.P.U. your unit would
go to two red almost immediately , so i don't think it's
the C.P.U.

OK the fix is to open it up and press down firmly
and evenly on the heat-sink under the CD drive
that is the G.P.U.s heat-sink .This should re seat and
restore normal operation .

That it

Installed new upper & lower elements & thermostats, only top htr works


If original problem was caused by sediment burning out lower element, did you clean sediment out of water heater when changing lower element?
Two element water heaters are 240V.
Thermostats cut power on one hot wire, but 240V circuit has 2 hot wires. So lower element has power at all times coming from the red wire.
1) Use ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> test each screw of lower element to bare metal part of water heater. Each screw should show 120V. If there is no power, then upper thermostat is defective, screw on upper thermostat is loose, or red wire between upper and lower parts of water heater is bad.
2) Remove wires from lower element. Use continuity tester or multimeter set to ohms <> test across both screws of element to see if power travels through element <> if element is bad, then continuity tester will not light up and multimeter will show no ohms. Put wires back on element after test.
3) Start with cold water in tank. Turn on water heater & upper element will turn on. Put ear on side of tank to hear if upper element is heating water. Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 240V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 0V.
Put ear on side of tank. When upper element turns off: Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 0V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 240V. If this test shows 0V and 0V, then upper thermostat is bad. If reading is correct, immediately move to next test.

4) Turn temp on lower thermostat to 150. Using ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> Test across both screws of lower element. If there is no reading, and you know element is good from step 2, then lower thermostat is bad, or wire is bad between lower element and lower thermostat, or wire is bad between lower thermostat and top part of heater.
5) Test across both lower thermostat screws, should read 240V.If this test is good, it means wires are good. Put jumper wire across both screws of lower thermostat, and test lower element again. If element finally turns on with jumper wire, then lower thermostat is bad.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.

My console is not working. Is there a simple solution?


This unit power supply that plug in the wall, If you have a multi meter. I suggest checking the outlet and work your way back to see if their is DC voltage, assuming 12V if this voltage is not present then replace power supply. If it is present then you my have loose connections inside the the unit or defective upper console or lower electronics. The simple way with out taking the side panels off is to remove the upper console and disconnect the 4 lead connector. Find the usually red and black attach your meter and see if you get 5V DC, if you have this voltage then the upper console will need replacing. If not then I would take the side panels off then check the connector leading to the lower board if I have voltage going in and not out replace lower board.

Nintendo DS lite


Baakie,

You turn de DS Lite on, the green light flashes and the unit turned of. Is that correct?

The DS Lite checks some things before he starts-up. One of these things are the screens. the DS sends a signal to it and expect an answer back. When this answer is not received, it shuts down.
The most common problem in these cases is the flatcable of the upper screen.
Question is, did you replaced the housing? If so, you might dammaged the flatcable of the upper screen. If not, the flatcable might be defective because of using the DS Lite a lot (open /close the unit).

So first check the flatcable of the upper screen (google and you will find manuals how to open the DS Lite but be carefull!!!!)

Second, on the mainboard are two fuses (F1 and F2) . Check these! One of them might be defective

Success

Locking up after 10mins


Check both of the Connectors (DS and AGB cartridge). It sounds like there is contamination. If these seem OK then it's sounds like it might be a thermal problem withthe circuit board. Call Nintendo.
