My truck continues t overheat AI had the radiator changed out, the thermostat the fan clutch and another thermostat. had pressure and blockage test ran on it it passed but the truck sill overheats. I was...

The bleeding nipple would be near the water pump rad hose inlet and beneath the thermostat valve cover.
Bleeding is easy, just fill up the radiator and the reservoir w/ coolant run the engine for 5 min and open the bleeding nipples! or Just fill up the radiator before u start the engine, early morning, run the engine for 5 min. untill the thermostat valve opens, open the radiator cap( use a wet rag ), carefull not to open it instantly! Fill up the radiator while the engine runs, add coolant while u slightly reving up the engine.
Do these and open the heater to maximum, air might be inside the core too!
Hope that helps u out!

Ps3 doesnt display on my tv on regular plug and shuts off after 2 mins

The PS3 combines the features of a game console and a Blu-ray player in one device but like many highly sophisticated devices it can easily overheat. An overheating PS3 displays an LED on the front called the "yellow light of death" and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Repairing a PS3 system so that it doesn't overheat can be done at home, although you will need to open up the case and add heat dissipation paste to the GPU and CPU chips inside of the case. But it costs you more rather you can send the unit to SONY.

Ps3 fan doesnt work?

I have solution for all of you. You need to call sony at 1-800-345-7669. They will send you a box so you can place you unit in (ps3). If you got warrany on your ps3 they will ask you to send in a copy to varify that it is still in warrany. If it is then they will not charge you anything they will open up the system and see what the problem is either fix the ps3 or they will replace it with a refuribished one. Also you need to make sure that the warrany tag on the ps3 upper right side is still there or they will charge you 150 dollars. And if the serial on the back is removed they will not even service your unit. If you unit is not in warrany they will charge you 150 dollars. Wich is real good because they will dust the interior of it good luck everyone...

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
