The snap you hear is likely from the high voltage in the set. The worst case scenario is that the picture tube (CRT) is shorted and is arcing internally causing the set to shut down. There are other less expensive possibilities such as the flyback transformer which can also fail in such a way as to arc. You may be able to see through the top ventilation slots in back as you power the set. The neck of the tube extends back into the rear cabinet and you could possibly see a flash inside the tube neck if it is arcing. I would have to recommend you have a technician check this problem to diagnose it. The tube, if it is defective and out of warranty, would exceed the cost of replacing the TV. Check your warranty as the tube generally has a two year warranty and other parts one year with 90 days on labor.

Car won't stay running after sits overnight and runs good after you do get it started

In the morning, turn key to on position for 5 seconds. Do not crank.Then turn off for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times. Then try to start. If engine starts right up, the fuel pump check valve is bad. Meaning all fuel in fuel line is returning to the tank when car sits overnight. The only fix is to replace fuel pump. If that doesn't work, replace coolant temp. sensor for the computer. About a 12.00 part.

I'm just getting a blank screen when I turn the PS3 on?

try holding the start button down for about 10 seconds or so. It will beep 3 times in a row and "reboot" the system. If it is turning off on its own "yellow light of death". That is a problem. Contact playstation. Hopefully it is still under warranty. If not, they might be able to help, but would charge you for a fix. Once you get that thing back on, back up your information to an external hard drive in case it dies.

It freezes and doesn't charge well.


You can try a hard reset to start all over, or probably a book inside your reader may be corrupted. You can try a hard reset:

Note: All data will be deleted and you will need to transfer all your content, if from Sony, do not worry you can redownload the books at no cost again.

1. Make sure the reader is at least half charge (If you are not sure, connect it to the computer for 15 minutes and make sure there is a redlight at the top)
2. With the reader disconnected from the PC, hit the reset button at the bottom of the reader for 5 seconds
3. Release the reset, and slide the power swith, the scree will blink and will shot "Opening Book..."
4. While the reader shows "Opening Book" press and hold the zero "0" and the down arrow until "RESET ALL" appears on the screen
5. You will be prompted to press the number five "5" to agree
6. Press the number 5 and the reader will go blank, turn the reader on again and this time allow it to load
7. Transfer you books again

Hope this helps, Good Luck! =)

My Sony vaio pcg 3c2l has locked up. The keyboard stopped responding and now the screen is black, but the power light is still on. The power button doesn't respond when I push it. What should I do?

Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

I have a 1990 VW Cabriolet that ran out of gas, put 5 gallons (gas) in it and now it wont start, turns over but wont fire

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You probably need to prime the engine. You need to put a little gas into the intake and then try starting it. Check to see if you have a fuel reset button. It may be located in the glove box. If you prime the gas, it should start. You might have to do this a few times before it will catch. If it doesn't, there might be a chance that you have another issue. Make sure you can hear your fuel pump kicking on when you first turn the key. Do this first. Turn the key on for 10 seconds and turn it off for 10 seconds. Do this 5 times and then try to start it. Repeat the process if you have to. This will prime the fuel pump.

Code u1040 03 pontiac gp

Hi, if you are receiving a u1040 code ,the car needs to be put on a good scanner to see which module is not communicating this includes the pcm-ebcm-bcm-sir/sdm-ipc-radio and the pass key 111, you need to check the battery hots, ignition hots ,grounds and serial data lines to each module if the scanner cannot communicate with any of the modules, the serial data line will have a very low amount of voltage and will be moving between low voltages check all the fuses and relays battery connections and grounds, the ignition relay is a good one to check, also for the antitheft reprogram relearn there is a 30 minute relearn process ;;try to start the vehicle and release the key do not turn it off wait ten minutes until the security light goes out then turn the key off for 5 seconds and turn the key back on wait 10 more minutes for the light to go off again turn the key off for 5 seconds and then back on for 10 minutes more after the light goes off turn the key off for 5 seconds and now try to start the car, if it still doesn’t start then check for any connections under the hood for water damage or critter damage.

Take care

2003 yukon 5.3 ran outa gas put some in now wont start?/??

Good chance that the fuse may have blew and needs to be replaced. If the fuse is still good, the bad news is the fuel pump may have burnt it self out and will need to be replaced. The fuel it self is what keeps the fuel pump cooled and keeps it from burning it self up. Good luck and start with the simple and check the fuse. Good luck and keep me posted.

My Sansa doesn´t work well,

If it is still on, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds; that should turn it off. Try turning it on again. If it still does not work, turn it off by holding power for 15 seconds, then on again like this: - Put hold on - Hold record - Press power on This will start recovery mode, follow on-screen instructions. Hope all goes well!!
