Unfortunately the only location of the serial number on the console is on the barcode located on the back down near the TV outputs.

The serial is not accessible in the system menu and does not display under system information. The only other possiblity is to talk to Sony and ask them if they have a means of identifying the serial by pulling it out of memory somehow to verify that this unit actually matches the serial you have.

To be honest if the serial sticker has been removed I would imagine it should be up to Police to follow this up with Sony as they have a responsibility to ensure the unit is returned to its correct owner.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

What's the firing order for 2004 Suzuki Verona 2.5

whats the job.?? why must we guess this? key fact (input)
or tell what you did wrong,
or tell why you ask, curious, or just what?
there are many steps in all engine assemble that you need the firing order.

engine on floor, in 200 parts. timing the cam?>
or changing coil packs? (times 6)
we cant guess what's'' UP?

the engine on these cars, are all fired by computer.
so IT knows firing, order and not you. (hard coded in ecu memory)
USA car has 6 coil packs.
but in OTHER countries (instated by u) It might have 3 packs.
or 3 packs in one giant pack. (LOOK and tell me?)
but the mech, must put the coil pack back as he found it.
the coil packs some dont have, the markings on them.
so if removed, you are in a JAM. (not with COPS)
the new pack in a box may be with papers. got that?
I'll pretend you are in USA with USA car.
C.O.Ps means COIL OVER PLUG (x6)

2.5L is the XK6 , in line 6 engine, most are timed
this car is part Daewoo, half Suzuki and part GM.
a small horror that, and bad news really if read fate of Daewoo and Suzuki here. (i sold all my suzuki's )

so here is fact one on that engine.
Daewoo XK straight-6 (marketed as "E-TEC", used in Daewoo Magnus, via GM's purchase of Daewoo Motor)

the book on this car is only $4 on line, real online suzuki
is that too much to pay ?

our xk6 sold in the USA has a coil over each plug.
called COPS
and can not be mixed, so again, why do you ask this.?

Daewoo engine, fires just like a 1948 Chevy stove bolt six

My psp got stole from my house how can i track

There is no way to track a PSP, unless you installed a tracking hack onto it before it got stolen. You obviously did not install a tracking hack beforehand, so there really is no way to track it down except for conventional "follow the clues" type things, or calling the cops.

If you did, however install a tracking method onto it before it got stolen, finding out how to use it is as simple as going to the website that supports it.

If you can remember certain marks on it or something unique that can identify it however, keep an eye out for your acquaintances carrying around PSPs. I can say from personal experience that a lot of the time, the thief is closer than you think.

Hi I am just wonderin if I can gt help. I brought a phone from a advertisment in a local shop I paid 90 pounds an then I had buy a charger as the man said it broke it is a blackberry curve and every thin...

I think this means that the phone was stolen or reported stolen . Each phone has imei number which is supposed to be an identifier. Usually when the phone is reported stolen the network operater updates the database and all operators in that country will block it from connecting to any network. they share information.
This phone is almost certainly stolen , the fact it comes without a charger adds suspicion, in my opinion. the only thing to do here is take the phone back for a refund. Perhaps consider asking for compensation for the purchase of the charger also.

I lost my car keys today and don't have a spare key!

Call a dealership and they will direct you to someone who can help.
Either that or you could try and change the door locks and ignition switch yourself. Hopefully some nice person will find the keys and bring them to a post office or a police station...which leads me to your next choice of or go to the police station/post office and ask if anyone has turned in a set of keys. It's always a good idea to report missing/stolen keys anyway...just in case.
You could also try any stores that were in the general vicinity of where you think you may have lost them.
Are you sure you didn't lock them in the car?
Check your dresser,pants pockets, would be surprised at where some people find missing keys. If you have small children or pets check with them as well.
I once found mine buried in the garden...
Good luck and hope this helps.

I bought a 42LG30 5 months ago. It was stolen last week, and the cops would like the serial number, which of course I don't have. Are the last 4 digits of the serial number (L097) unique to that particular...

Contact the manufacturer of the tv, in order to activate the warranty you would have had to send in the warranty card with the model and serial number. As a far fetched thought you could check the models at the store you purchased your tv from and see if they match or have a record of your purchase, a lot of places keep that information on big ticket items. Good Luck.
