    stopped being recognized shortly after my motherboard was replaced. not making startup sounds or humming noises i'm used to hearing regularly, but the light still comes on.

    I have a similar problem. Many times it does not turn up when I open My Computer.

    Other times it will show up but when you go into the files there is nothing there.

    If it is taken to be repaired will I lose all the music file saved on it?

Cub cadet rzt 50 making grinding noise when starting after it starts still making noise sounds like coming from fly wheel. any suggestions thanks


The shaft that the solenoid pushes the gear up needs lubrication. If it's been grinding too long, the bearing in the starter is worn letting the armature to rub on the field frame. Might be time for a starter motor.

Dyson vacuum, Vacuuming when I sucked up some wires. I pulled them out and the vacuum started making a loud noise. Now when I use it that happens and now it sparks.. What should I do?


quit using it and take it to a repair shop sounds like your motor is shorting out. However i would suggest buying a new vac since dyson motor replacement can be quite pricey.

Whenever i start dubbing a movie from sky movies on a dvd my picture always gets fuzzy


hi.
there is usually a signal embedded within movies which prevents the film being opied to DVD. on some recorders the picture will go fuzzy, on others the picture will alternate between light and dark picture. this is quite normal and deliberately done by sky to prevent people copying films.

System quit working green light on


depending on the year of your machine, assuming it is the serenity blue, it may be the circuit board on the unit itself. The manual switch "should" start the machine, but if not it will be the circuit board inside the main unit.

however....
if your unit is the green one, it may be the motor inside the unit and/or the circuit board. Hard to say. I do not think that it is the motor as the circuit breaker should have popped out if it was the motor.

Regardless of the colour of the unit, if it is 5-7 years old or less, the unit should still be under warranty. home service calls and labour to install the motor would not be covered.

Good luck.

I have a oreck xl2 and while vacuuming the vacuum quit. The vacuum has the red power light on. Please advise


sounds like a bad motor. if the light is on at the switch and the motor doesn't run, then it could definitely a motor problem, worn down or dirty carbon brushes. the motor on these machines are not the best built, they require cleaning of the commutator yearly.

Dirt devil purpose for pets vacuum quit working


The motor overheats from the filter being clogged underneath the canister or the canister or both are clogged-without the air flow the motor overheats and shuts off as a precautionary measure.By letting the motor cool off it will start again but will turn off shortly if the filters are not properly cleaned.Hope this helps everyone.

They just stopped working!


Hoover has a 1 year warranty on their vacuums, so the newer one will be under warranty. The other won't be. It could be bad switches, even tho they sound ok, they could still be bad, One side of the cord could be open, there is also a thermostat on the motors, it may have opened up, then of course could even be the motor. Just would have to be check over.
