My oven is about 10-15 years old and I cannot reset the clock after the power has been disconnected.


Hello. I need the model number to help you accurately and provide part numbers for your particular unit. Was the power turned off by you or was it a power outage(caused by lightning, construction, etc). If the power went out due to an outage, the main board might very well have been damaged. Power interruptions are notorious for blowing out or damaging circuit boards in ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, washers, dryers...the list is almost endless. Normally, the power going out doesn't do the damage--it's the restoring of the power(and the accompanying current surge) that is the culprit. If a board has been damaged by a current surge, if it wasn't knocked out completely immediately, 3-4 weeks after the event is the usual time when symptoms start appearing--caused by weakened electronic chips on the circuit boards starting to fail.

My e machine computer will just shut off after 5 or 10 min.,


I had an Emachines W3609 that did the same thing, I changed the 350-watt power supply with a 550-watt and it still shut off, even using the newer one. I thought just the first one was bad but I guess not. It had more than enough power to power it up but nothing. And it used to randomly restart at times and then just shut off. Try and get a new hard drive maybe that will help. Good luck!

I have a ps3 2 days ago we had a power outage and I tried to use it today and it only turns on for about 1 second then shuts off again I cannot get the disk out anymore can you help pleeeeze


If you had a power outage then more than likely the power supply was damaged. You'll need to take the PS3 apart and swap out the old one with a new one.

How to fix a ps3 after the power went off and the


It needs a new power supply. When the power came back on, most likely a surge damaged the power supply.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $35 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Air conditioner compressor runs for about 1-2 min, then cuts off


well when u have outages the voltage drops obviously, the one that suffers are the capacitors the capacitor for the compressor might need to change, change it with the same capacity as the old one example if labels say 55 microfarady ( mf ) ( 55 mf ) get one of the same I am not saying it is a 55 mf capacitor vary depending on motor and brand. So check the label

Ps3 keeps switching off


It's overheating. That's why it works longer the first time and you have to wait a few minutes for it to cool. Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

Shutting down on 60mg system


try holding the power button on the right
side of the console as you turn the back power switch on.Keep on holding the power button and see if there is a double beep.If this doesn't work,and if you want to try this? Open the HDD cover on the left side of the unit(front facing you).after removing the cover,remove the HDD unit and reconnect.It might be a loose HDD connection.This should only take you 2 mins to do and it won't void your warranty
