I am having kodak c533 for the past 5 years. yesterday it has fallen from my table.i contacted the service .they are telling to change the lens .the cost is rs.3500.00 plus service Rs.500. pl adv. is it...

It is not worth repairing at such a cost as it is bettter that you can buy a newer model with an extra bit more. Also sometimes it is possible to get the spares freely from a repair store from a camera which was scrapped for a optical failure.
So until you get one for a cheaper cost the best option is to buy a newer model with better features. Some companies are taking old models for an exchange and this must also be checked .

I have an Atwood Direct Ignition Model G6A-4E 6 Water Heater

I am a RV service tech and that is an old unit. Your control board is bad but with the age of that unit I would strongly suggest replacing the whole water heater, you can shove a pile of money at it and still have an old water heater when for 3 to 500 bucks you can have a new one with a 2 year warranty

Green crt not getting signal

Before you sink 500 into the signal bd
I would double check the crt bd for the green gun

There is a couple of resistors on that board that go bad (open up)

this does not sent the signal in

Did the tech use a scope to determine weather you have signal to the crt bds or did he just switch the crt bds from one to the other ?
I bet if you change the crt board or ohm out the boards you will find a open resistor

My 3 year old Amana is giving me some serious issues. I have had 5 servicemen over now who haven't been able to fix it. The problem seems to be that after a successful heating, the inducer blower does...

A service tech "should" eliminate each potential problem part before replacement.
If the problem is intermitent, that can be a challenge.

If its not the the swithc, and three techs have looked at it, I would suspect the board as it is what sends signal to all the switches, and produced the diagnostic codes.

Bad boards can also send false failures to other components.

I'd replace the board.

My maytag neptune washerfront loader quit agitating and spinning out the water. Code on digital read out is Lr can you help me?

LR is a locked rotor. Usually when I've gotten this error code in the past, you have to replace the motor control board and motor as a kit. However, if this kit has to be installed due to a bad motor, the motor carries a 5 year warranty. If it has to be replaced due to a bad board, the board only has a 2 year warranty. The snag is they have to be replaced together as neither of the old parts is made anymore. I can tell you already the motor/ board kit costs about $300 just for the part. However, since these are expensive machines, I would recommend having a maytag authorized tech come out if the unit is less than 5 years old. It would be worth the service call (and armed with this knowledge) to see if the part can't be replaced under warranty. (wouldn't be a bad idea to have your owners manual ready to show that the motor has a 5 year warranty on it as well) Most warranty companies don't know from model to model which parts are under warranty without the owners manual.
