Yes, but the only way to do it would be very hard of an average joe to do. you would have to know how circuit boards worked, and how to soldier.

On pokemon XD it keeps saying that the save file currupts I have alot of room on it but it still crrupts so what do I do to fix this


  • Fully Corrupt:
    When the entire save area of the Memory Card becomes corrupt, the system will inform the player that the Memory Card is corrupt and offer to format it. The card must be formatted before gameplay begins or when the game attempts to access the Memory Card. The exact message may vary from software to software.
    Follow the steps for formatting a memory card.

  • Suggestion: It is always a good idea to copy your most important files to a second Memory Card as a back-up.

  • Data Area Only Corrupt:
    When only the data area of a Memory Card is corrupt (not the entire Memory Card) the game may not detect this until the Memory Card is accessed. Once it is accessed, the game will inform the player that the file being accessed is corrupt and must be erased. The game will only delete the one file being accessed and will not format the entire Memory Card (Other saved game files on the Memory Card may be OK).
    Follow the steps for deleting a file.

  • Memory Card is Damaged:
    If the Memory Card has been physically damaged, or has been damaged beyond repair, you will get this message. The Memory Card will need to be replaced. The system may attempt to format the card, but if it cannot it will give the error Memory Card is Damaged. There is no way to recover the game data from the memory card.

This procedure is only used if a corrupted Memory Card is inserted into the Nintendo GameCube.
If required, this procedure will begin automatically when you select "Memory Card Screen" from the main menu. You cannot use this procedure to erase files from a useable Memory Card.
  1. After selecting "Memory Card Screen" from the Main Menu, if your Memory Card requires formatting, a window will appear to ask for confirmation for formatting.
  2. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button
  3. A window will appear to notify you that all data will be erased and ask again for confirmation for formatting.
  4. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button.
NOTE: When you format a Memory Card, all data will be permanently erased and unable to be recovered.

Tip

Duett Washer Diverter valve not working, F 13 alarm code.


I fixed my Duett diverter valve by unsoldering the tiny switch from the pc ( printed circuit ) board, and replacing it with another similarly sized switch from an electronics store ( Active Electronics). The switch cost less than 30 cents, and after I slightly modified the plastic snap on cover ( the switch I bought was 2 pole instead of the original 1 pole) my washer worked again! ( I did have to sand down the plastic switch button a bit ,as it was longer than the original one).

The usb port seems to have broken


Hi,

The USB jacks should just be soldered to the motheboard. How comfortable are you with using a soldering iron on a multi-layer printed circuit board that can easily be damaged if a bit too much heat or a bit too much force is applied while removing the old sockets or putting in the new ones. There is also the matter of first finding identical replacement USB jacks. You could also pay a PC repair shop to do the repair for you.

If you have an open memory card slot on the laptop, a USB adapter card like one of these may work out for you:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815123021

Just be sure you properly identify the memory/expansion slot type on the laptop and get a matching USB adapter card.

Pleaes post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Game cube


read my previous post to you and try that and let me know if it worked or not sounds like you will have to follow those instructions. maybe it will work. since the gamecube states the card was damaged so a format will be required so the method will wipe it clean and cross your fingers and hope it works.

Strange series of bowed lines in the picture


Nope, not dust on the lens, but you have two IC's in the convergence correction circuit that have to be replaced. you shouls get the service manual for this set, as well as go to www.servicemanuals.net to find the download but also go to www.mcmelectronics to get the STK convergence IC's. If you have no solid state printed circuit board repair experience, I highly advise you to call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

Wii won't work after "incorrect memory card" was inserted.


you shouldnt need a memory card to save wii games it has 512mb internal memory.unless your trying to play gamecube games on it.the wiis security features are incredible if it cannot recognize a controller or memory card it will power down.make sure you are using a SD memory card because it will not accept anything else.it will power down for safty reasons.

Memory card format


Try take the card out, then put it back in fully. I've seen this problem before on an Official Nintendo GameCube 251 Block. If there are saves on it, and it still asks you to format the card, just take the card out, and put it back in. You could also try a different slot... Chances are, you just have to take the card out and put it in again for some odd reason. I've seen this fixing that issue. I don't think any of the hardware, i.e. the GameCube or the Memory Card are damaged in any way. Hope this helps.
