This is somewhat common for 07 and earlier consoles .
If you hear it spin 3-4 sec then stop with a OPEN TRAY
message . 90% chance you have a dead/weak laser.

Good news , the new lasers are cheap 20.00- 30.00 and not hard
to install with help from a youtube tutorial

Or you could have a shop swap it out for 50.00-70.00
But shop around for some one local so if there is problem
you'll avoid shipping it back and forth .

If you have any questions feel free to ask

    If had thought to ask for more help installing the laser or how to swap
    the old drives P.C. board to a new drive , I would have been more than
    happy to help you , I could have sent you a new laser for 20.00 .
    And you would have a working 360 . But you chose to be ungrateful
    and leave less then favorable feed back.

    Oh well .

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.


Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

Cd in macbook wont ejec


This can be a problem. First try rebooting the machine, and holding the eject button when you hear the startup tone. Hopefully, that will force-eject it.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to get creative. Get a playing card or something similar, and put some rolled-over tape on one side close to the edge, so there's a sticky side out. Turn the computer off, and try to get the playing card into the CD drive, with the tape making contact with the stuck CD. Reboot, holding the eject button when you hear the eject button again, and pulling the card out. Hopefully, the CD will come out with the card. If it doesn't work, just keep trying, and you'll get it out eventually.
Generally what causes this is keeping CDs in the computer for an extended period of time, especially while the computer is powered off. Make sure you remove all CDs before moving or turning off your computer.

Hi, The game, Nancy Drew: Danger by design, doesn't work in my laptop. Every time I try to play the game, the screen freezes but I can hear the music at the back ground. All the other Nancy drew games...


The first thing you should try, is to update both JAVA and Flash. If it uses those, that is likely the issue.

Here are the links:
http://www.java.com/en/download/inc/windows_upgrade_xpi.jsp

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Be sure to uncheck the boxes that install toolbars. Also, it wouldn't hurt to make sure that Windows is up to date. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

Very low volume HK 695-01


There are several ways in which you can increase the volume.

First, the most obvious way is to use the volume control attached to the speaker unit itself. If that isn't working, there's also an icon in the lower right-hand portion of the task bar in Windows. Simply click the ^ button, select the icon that looks like a speaker, then drag that up to your desired preference.

If that doesn't work, click on Start, go to Control Panel, click on Sound, then search for your Speakers in the "Playback" tab. First, make sure it's set as your Default Device. There should be a green check mark in it. Double click on those, select Levels, then make sure Play Control is set to maximum.
If that doesn't work, then check the settings on your Sound Card. Make sure the wire going into the back is plugged in properly. You may need to update your sound card drivers. If you aren't sure who the manufacturer of your sound card is, you can find out by going to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager. The Manufacturer will be under Sound, Video and Game Controllers.

Once you have that information, you can go to the Manufacturer's website and update the Drivers. If this doesn't resolve the issue you are experiencing, or if you require more specific / additional information, simply respond to this thread. I'll be happy to assist you further.

I inserted a new movie and I have no sound nor video with a green and blue lights on.


I had this weird problem yesterday knowing I have not done any video setting changes, nor recall a pending software installation. When I start the PS3, green light comes up and then nothing happens. Insert the Game into the slot, blue light blinks and again nothing happens. No video, no sound, and no, it’s not output setting problem as many others have guessed in forums. Try to assign your wireless controller and you’ll know. It doesn’t. If it was on, output and controller assigning I assume should be two separate things.
Solution:
  1. With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.
  2. Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
  3. Now, the system restore screen (or whatever they call it) will come up like this



  4. You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming. For me, I tried the option top-bottom and eventually had to do the Restore PS3 System. Luckily, all I had were demos, trailers, and game saves. only game I was really playing now was Prince of Persia. I felt terrible still though, but much better than if I was playing Ninja Gaiden or MGS right? Or let’s say a game Fallout!
Sharing it for others with same misfortune. Guess we’ll need the PS3 included in the backup plan then.
