I want to buy a Burris elliminator 111 4-16 x 50 laserscope rcs.I seem to find no online shop that will send it from USA to South-Africa.Who can?

Check to see whether it is an export-restricted item under U. S. law. If it is for firearms use, there are probably arms-control regulations and licensing requirements for dealers that make export difficult even if it is legal.

Otherwise, the following is listed among the international dealers on the Burris website:

African Outdoor Sports
26 Kyalami Rd, Pinetown, 3610,
South Africa

US Nintendo DS-Lite with converter problems in South Africa


It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.

This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

American PS3 in South Africa

Hey thomas952,

While they may not be region-coded, PS3 consoles and games sold within the United States are going to be NSTC compliant, instead of the PAL format used in the United Kingdom and South Africa. What this means is that in order for any game to display properly (or even operate) it must be purchased from the same region of the world as the console itself - NTSC games can only be played on NTSC consoles.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

It's odd that BestBuy did not send you're notebook back to HP for you but the BestBuy you are talking about is not in the USA.
The HP Pavilion DV2125NR. Bought December 2007 is still under warranty. Most laptops & desktops come with a one year warranty, unless you paied for an extended warranty. For the HP Pavilion DV2125NR, contact HP directly for a RMA. You will may have to pay for shipping to HP USA. Hp will ship back to you free. To contact HP.
You must first get a return material authorization number (RMA) by calling us at 1- (888) 999-4747. You can also call,
Customer Service

The notebook bought in December 2006 is not within warranty, (Unless you bought an extended service). As you mentioned.
I would not trust the BestBut in Venezuela. It seems they may have stated bad boards just to get ridd of you.
It is alway best to talk directly to HP/Compaq customer service before making any decision.

Hope you find this information helpful.

Sorry AIO Is only based in Europe, USA, China, Taiwan, Singapore & Malasia, Maybe its best you replace your unit because It will cost you more to repair it anyway.
But if you need the contact details of AIO let me know and I will send them to you (specify which branch of AIO details you want) Thanks.

Ps2 slim and Stuntman Ignition

The PS2 slim motherboard is pretty resilient, except when it comes to Lightning. if the PS2 slim will not Boot up and show the memory card or anything, the Emotion Engine processor on the motherboard is likely toasted.


If you want to fix it, you will need to get on Ebay, and find a Broken PS2 slim theat will not read disks. Be suire you know that the broken one will boot up before bidding.  I say do this, becasue it will not be worth fixing if you buy  a new Motherboard. As new PS2 slim motherboards cost around $75. 


You can send the PS2 to the Playstation Clinic in South Carolina if your in the USA. I will diagnose it and fix it if I can without replacing a motherboard.  The cost for this is $31 including Return shipping and a 90 day warranty. No charge if I find it needs a motherboard and you do not want to  replace the motherboard. I run the website and we can replace a motherboard, but will not repair one. Too expensive to repair. Time is money.   The charge for replacing a motherboard including return shipping is about $85 for new motherboard, or $65 for a used motherboard. . This includes a 90 day warranty as well.
