Check your batteries. If you are using lithium ion batteries, they are strong enough to run the camera operations just fine, EXCEPT for the flash. After a couple of uses, the li ions are not strong enough to produce a volt burst strong enough to trigger the flash. Get the rechargable nickel hydride batteries recommended at sony.com.

As driving the car, the Engine suddenly stops for a fraction of second (speedometer going down to zero and back up in speed) with the yellow Engine sign flashing (intermittently).


If the engine sign is flashing it usually means that the car needs IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. Put a code reader on the computer see what code it's calling out then go from there, it could be your TPS, IAC or your fuel pump, FP regulator or any of the associated wiring.

Im having a sudden problem with my Ps3. The fan cuts in for about 2 seconds and cuts out then it says no signal, then flashes yellow, then flashes red...does this mean its totally screwed or only a little?


Hello there sarah

If you have the brief flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.

The lights are a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

41a5021-3e Yellow light on back flashing, and the remotes do not work. Tried to reprogram but still no luck.


Random flashing of that light is normal. Rapid flashing is a sign of interference. Make sure the light in the wall control is not flashing. If it is press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds. Your logic board may be bad.

My flash quit working


You are correct in saying that the bulb needs to be replaced. Take the camera to any camera shop and they will replace it for you.

Nikon S210 flash not working


The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

Laptop stoped working


I have an Aspre 3680 as well, and a flashing adapter light is not a good sign, I suggest you get a multi meter and test for to make sure you are getting the 19 volts output that are required to run the laptop and charge the battery.

My goal is to provide you with a helpful fix ya solution, if you found this advice helpful please rate it as Fixya, thanks
