Overheated, or really broken?

That was summer, but it wasnt that hot...we're playing with my ps2, but then of a sudden turned off...we quickly checked it, then it smelled like burning plastics, or sumthing. it turned on again, but this time, cant read the just left a round scratch on my cd near the center..seems like it was scratched while running, and it hapend on other cd's too...

my ps2 starts, but doesnt recognize my games now than it usually does...

now we repaired it to a tchnician...

i just wana ask if i could stil fix that one on my own, rather than spending money for its repairs...

I think your ps2 may be overheating. Try checking to see if it heats up real hot.

04 Santa Fe burning smell running ac....

Sounds like the A/C compressor clutch has overheated and become inoperable. Open the hood, start engine, observe the compressor face. It should be turning and also see if that's where the noise and burning smell is coming from.
Good luck!!!

1977 924 porsche/ hot start issue, overheating issue

Okay, I'm going to take a shot here. 1977 so this has an electric fuel pump and fuel injection? To me the overheating problem is either a stuck closed thermostat or to much timing,,, or both. As for hard to start. Ensure that you are getting fuel, and check ALL of your hoses for a vacuum leak. We are talking about a 30+ year old car and the hoses can be brittle cracked or peeling off. This can make it hard to start.

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick

Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~
