    Does a "lifted bracket" mean that it is socketed and all I have to do is pull it out? Thanks again for you help

    I just found this site. LOVE IT!!

    I have this same Optoma 716. Upon replacing the power cord, following bulb replacement, through the vent slots I noticed a red glow, for about 1 second which then disappeared. I would have sworn in court that it was a red LED. Not so much. Projector won't power it up, so I thought perhaps I'd observed a fuse blowing. Tore the projector apart, and saw nothing. No fuse, no burns, nothing.

    I'm wondering if someone would be so kind as to post a photo of this fuse. I'm going to rip the projector apart again later today to see if I can find it based on what I've read here.

Hi John

That's the one ! The two ends of the fuse will sit in a "lifted bracket" touching only the two ends.

1991 1.8 Fox Steering unusually stiff and squeek when wheel is turned. Alignment was adjusted today but the problem persists

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The problem can be on the power steering pump itself. If the power steering pump is faulty, the power steering fluid does not circulate properly. One good reason why it squeaks when wheel is turned. Check the power steering belt too if they are not sloppy. If it is, adjust the pump to tighten the belt.

But before doing the power steering pump replacement, please do check the power steering fluid level. You may need to fill it up a little and turn the wheel from left to right. By turning the wheel to the max left and max right, the steering fluid will circulate and may get rid of the problem.

If the problem still persists after putting on new fluids, go for the power steering pump replacement. Be sure to tighten the power steering belt after replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hello, My receiver wont come out of

If you push the power button and you hear it "click" that means it's getting power. Now, that being said... Couple things to check: first: disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and attempt to power up, if it does, that's a good sign that your receiver is ok and your problem lies in the speakers or in the speaker wire. If you still can't get it to power up, pop the top of the unit. Most receiver's have 6 or 7 #1 phillips head screws on the sides and rear of the receiver. Pull these off. Look directly at the area where the power cord plugs into the unit (make sure the unit is unpluggged) There is usually a fuse right nearby. If it's a white fuse or gray fuse you may need to do a quick continuity check with a meter to test. If your familliar with meter's, just switch it to continuity/tone. If the fuse is good, you will hear a tone from the meter. If not, there's your problem. If your not sure how to test with a meter, either take it to Radio Shack or similar store, ACE hardware etc. they can test it for you and will generally have replacements in stock. If the fuse is good, your speakers are disconnected and you still have no turn on, your receiver needs to be serviced. If that's the case, whether you service or replace the receiver, get a good "Theater" line conditioning surge!!! like Panamax, Monster, APC, or Furman. A good unit will start around 250. Small price to pay for saving expensive electronics! Hope this helps. If you need further help, just post a comment and I will be glad to help.

Blu ray

Hello timjul,

This can be caused by several things, look at the bottom of the disc and make sure its clean (not scratched up ect.).

If the dvd is new and has never worked on your dvd player it is possible that the region setting's are different. Look at the back of the dvd case and look for a little symbol of a globe with a number in it (1-6) and post that please.

Post the required info for further help. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Service error 5100

Ha! Ha! I think we have all felt like that at times - ready to throw an electronics item out the window. The canon site is not working properly right now, so have searched otherwise. Take a look at this same issue here.

If this doesn't help, don't throw it out! Post back and let me know a little more - what exactly happens when you get this error? Also, if you could provide your location, it would be helpful, and we need to make sure your driver is appropriate. Please post back if you still need help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Broken Mirror Wheel

Hi Sam

This actually called a Colourwheel , but never the less this is very easy to DIY.

You'll obviously have to take off the top cover of the Projector , and you will see that the Colourwheel sits in a bracket that is fastened to the bottom casing of the Projector.

Unscrew the bracket and take out the bracket and colourwheel as a whole. If memory serves me correct you will get the replacement part just like that in a new bracket.

When taking the colourwheel out do remember to take out the lint ( colourwheel's cable - white and very flat ) and also the regulator board's cable - they are normally right next to each other on the Mainboard.

If the replacement part does not come in a new bracket , then you will have to take it out of the bracket by unscrewing the 3 small screws at the back of the colourwheel. Do not remove the small regulator board that is also attached to the bracket !

If you have any further queries , please do not hesitate to post me a request , I will be more than happy to assist you the best I can in here.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

Altec Lansing ADA 885


Thanks for posting direct. As you posted, the Sony XBR has only left & right (white/red) outputs whereas your Altec ADA has multiple INputs. This leaves us with no other option but to used just the green INput of the Altec as the black and the S/PDIF has nowhere to be connected to in the Sony.

You would need to use a phone stereo to RCA cable/connector as shown below. Additionally, you would have to set up your speakers as suggested here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
