Minka f502 is noisy - how do you tighten the screws that attach the fan blade to the motor hub?

With a screw driver? And perhaps you also clean all blades. Sorry if you already did that.

1994 Geo Metro will not start

all spark plugs dead. and at the main coil?
in this case after fuse (test them , ones that look good can be bad)
these steps work or all EFI cars made.
first is the rotor spinning cranking, if not the cam belt snapped!
a 1 second check, do you try to run 60k mile belts 200k ?

  1. CEL lamp on? key on? no crank? y/n,, if no the ECU is dead. or lamp burned out, we fix this FIRST. for next tests.
  2. I insert the diagnostic jumper clip (paper clip)
  3. the CEL now flashes codes, write them all down.
  4. I then crank for 5 seconds. and release the key.
  5. The ECU then reports live codes. beyond above stored codes.
  6. The ECU is very good at finding bad crank or cam sensors dead or even missing pulses, 1 in 10 lost. trust it, on all cars ......
  7. if no sensor code errors or spark bad errors then do the next things.
  8. The ecu also reads back the Tacho signal and will report dead tacho, sig, the ECU creates this and is the COIL drive signal to the ignition coil via the IGNITOR device.
  9. If the ignitor dies, or the coil primary opens, (dead Ign.coil) then the ECU see this and gives you Spark fail codes, cranking only!
  10. if you get far with a dead ignition coil, the ignitor is bad or the coil assuming coil even has power 12vcd key on.
this is all in the FSM, if you read it.
as is the Ignitior tests, and the coil tests.
The FSM is an amazing thing if your read it.
buy one.

ECU = engine brain, or EFI brain
EFI = eletronic fuel injection
CEL is the check engine light also called SES or MIL.
your ECU is OBD1 and no scan tool works .
only the winky blinky light.

Disc tray will not open. I've turned on &off several times and it won`t open the tray. tries to but won`t open

This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...

Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again

On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it

The console is reading the disc, but won't play the disc. It keeps saying to open the tray. Then it is reading and says open the tray again. It won't play the game.

There are three primary causes for drive failures.

1 75% of the time it's a weak/dead laser
easy fix , buy the same model laser 20.00-30.00
and follow a tutorial on how to replace it.

2 the worm gear motor is weak .
I normally just replace the drive since
I can't seem to find a good vendor for this part.

3 spindle motor is weak/dead. Same solution as
above . Buy the same make /model drive . Then
remove the old drives P.C. board and plug/solder it
in the new one ,this always works. Drives cost 40.00-
50 new .

You can always have a shop swap it out for 60.00-80.00

Tray no longer opens and closes. I have to do it manually. It doesn't acknowledge discs at all, either. I have a new kinect ready console.

You have two unrelated problems .
First the eject motor is weak and staling out before
it can break the magnetic seal releasing the carage and
allowing the tray to open . If you give it a good hard slap over the
drive 1 sec after pressing eject button the tray should open.

Second is a weak or dead laser unable to read games.

My recommendations are to find out what make /model drive
you have .Google it. Then buy a new drive 40.00 50.00 or so.
and swap your old drives P.C board to the new drive
this will get you up and running again.

DVP 9000S, the tray does not come out and stick

This is a common problem, usually the eject drive motor, fails, or the circuitry, that drives it, or the brain, that tells, the drive to drive. There is no possible way to know, unless the unit is examined. You can sometimes get the tray open, by getting a straightened paper Clip, insert into a small hole at the front of the DVD tray, insert into hole, and push in, push, until a click, is heard/felt, and then push a little more past that point, and the tray should pop open, now you can at least get your DVD out. Now you either need to get this unit repaired or get a new one.

Cant read the video games always saying open tray

The laser is weak , easy to replace , shop repair 80.00 , D.I.Y 20.00- 30.00
The drive motor is dead, little harder to replace , shop repair 90.00-100.00 depending on the drive. D.Y.I 40.00-60.00. If you decide to repair it your self just remember the old drive P.C.B has to
be swapped to the new drive , and you'll be in good shape.

It only comes up with open tray

If you here it spin up and it goes to open tray
you probley have a dead laser or hub/spindel motor. Its an easy swap for the laser. if the
spindel motor is weak ,your going to have to
replace the drive and swap the board.
