Hi


Thanks for using FixYa.It seems to be an issue with the X, Y-main board however; control board should also be checked. As the sound is working fine so it means that power supply unit is functioning properly. Check for any bad/bulged capacitors on these boards. These boards are located on the right side of the unit and to check them you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then blow the dust off with a blow dryer. Once you have opened the back also check for any blown/bulged capacitors.All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    Jim,




    Thanks for your reply. If you are unable to see any bulge caps. then try to clean the boards inside and then plug the unit back in to check if everything is working fine.

    I will try that but it may be a day or two before it shuts off again, if it's not fixed. The boards are almost dust free

    Thank you, Jim

    Then there should be a capacitor thats going bad or some other component on the power supply board. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Hi Rylee,

    I checked All the caps again and they all look fine. I don't mind replacing a whole board if I could determine wich one.

After downloading songs on my Sansa View, some of the tracks are bad. I've tried to delete the bad tracks but Sansa View won't let me. Also, when a bad track appears the Sansa View freezes. Sometimes it...


have you consulted customer service on this? It sounds to me like it might be a drm issue, where drm is a form of licensing that stop you playing files without the license.If it is that kind of problem Sansa should recognise it straight away and then you'll know what to do. in the meantime you could try doing a reset as per the instructions that came with the player or go to the website and download the manual.

1988 cutlas ciera starts but stalls imediatly has 34 lbs fuel pre


If you have a V-6, your fuel pressure should be 40 to 45 lbs. If you have'nt done it already, replace the fuel filter and try again. Make sure the pressure does not leak down to near 0 lbs, the pump should hold near the pressure it produces.
Good luck, let me know.

My Phone Fell down in the Water what do i do ?


Turn off the phone imediatly if its still on. open up the phone by taking off the covers and unscrewing them. bring a hair dryer and dry the board then when its completely dry, use a toothbrush to brush any resedue off of the board. then spray it with any type of alcohol product and brush it again with the toothbrush. cover the phone and turn it on.

Ignition Timing


How to check and adjust the timing
Disconnect the tan/black wire EST (electronic spark timing) by-pass connector located near the heater housing in the engine compartment on the S/T series, or near the distributor on all other V-6 models. Do not disconnect the four- (4) wire connector at distributor. Connect the timing light to the No. 1 spark plug wire. Check timing and adjust to "0" degrees BTDC. With the engine off, reconnect the EST by-pass connector and clear the ECM trouble codes by disconnecting the battery.
