    Hi again steve

    The problem for your tv is the power supply.

    There are two capacitors that need to be replaced ;

    Parts location CM852 and CM853 , they are 1000mfds at 10 volts and you can replace them with 1000mfds at 16 volts.

    How good are you with a soldering iron?

    the two caps i listed are the main problem in this case.

    Look at them and you will see that they have a rounded top or appear swollen and might even leak(at the top)

    If you see any other caps that looks the same in that area , then they need to be replaced as well.

    No problem

    First you`ll have to take the back cover off and follow the power cord up to the power supply.

    Let me know when you`re there

    Contact me through email when you are ready.

    And also you may want to wait to see if there might be other caps that need to be replaced.

Ss-700 keeps flashin Not Ready

I had the flashing not ready problem with my SS-700 Cuisinart as well. I pressed and held the rinse and Hot Water buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds while the Not Ready was flashing. After 10 sec or so the display went off completely. I then powered up with the power switch on the side and the coffee maker came and is working fine so far.

Xbox 360 power button light keeps flashing and disc tray does not open

Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down.
it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again.
do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is

so for instance
you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin
so write down 4
then hold white button down again and press open button again
it may flash 4 again
then do it again and it may flash 2 lights
then again and it may flash 2 again

when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this
4 lights flashing
2 lights flashing
1 light flashing
2 lights flashing

if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

let me know then i can assist you further ok

Remove your battery for a few minutes. If you use a SIM card in your phone. Remove it also.
Replace all & then attempt to power back on. If this continues; try a new battery.

My wii remote keeps flashin but wont trun on

You have to sync the Wii remote to the console.
To sync the Wii remote, turn on your Wii. Then open the back of the remote and press the "SYNC" button. Then open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of your Wii and press the "SYNC" button. Your remote should be turned on if you do this.
If this problem still occurs even when the Wii remote is synced, your Wii remote might not be working properly. Return it for a new one.

The "green light flashing to the chirping" circuit may be defective.

Not a basic diagnosis--service literature and/or knowledge of each green light circuit will be needed.Possible shop repair.
