Question about Plextor PX-708A DVD±RW Burner

3 Answers

The Plextor PX810SA arrived today - no instructions, no manual - there is a strange 3 foot red cable with small plugins on both ends... 2 'sort-of' labels: "ROHS" & "CROSS OVER" - not a clue as to any of this. I suppose the "SA" stands for SATA - my hard drives are SATA's - so?

Yes thats SATA, sata supports hard drives and cd/Dvd drives also, you will need to connect it to a sata port or buy another sata controller for pci.

What to do when foot pedal just stopped working on old Bernina 830


There are a few problems possible. Assuming that there is not a mains (house) power problem, use the following logic to sort out the problem:
1. Do you have a light (assuming that the light bulb is good)? continue to #2.
2. With the machine unthreaded, the presser foot up, and the power cable plugs fully plugged in at the motor and foot control, depress the control to the run position.
Carefully bend and wiggle the cables at the plug locations one at a time. If the motor runs, the cable wires are damaged so you will replace the cable.
3. If available, try a (known good foot control) from another Bernina 830 of that exact vintage.
If the test foot control runs the machine, replace your foot control. Note: If the foot control is a type 213 for very old models, suggest that the control be replaced with a two wire electronic phase type control. (requires the foot control plug end to be cut off and rewired to the new phase controller). These electronic phase controls can be purchased from EBAY. Stay away from the Bernina type 213 control if possible. The type 213 controls have not been available for many years and it is highly likely that these controls are in a used condition, so you will not know if it has been properly adjusted.
If the 830 is a later model machine with the type 232 or 290 foot control and it is determined to be defective, no problem as they can be repaired.
4. If the (known good foot control) still does not work, you can assume that the motor has a problem. Motors for the Bernina 830 are occasionally available on EBAY and other sources.
Note: If the motor brushes have worn out and the commutator has been damaged, the motor is also salvageable.
-------------
Note: Always unplug the machine from the mains power when not in use as per Bernina instructions.

How to install my plextor rewritable drive


Okay.....this one is strange. Check on the back of the DVD Drive. You should see if it has connections on it. if it has two "L" Looking slots, then you will need SATA connectors. If you see a bunch of gold pins lined up in a row of TWO, then you need IDE/ATAPI Cables. You will have to take the side panel off of your desktop and look for the connections on the motherboard. Once you have identified the connections on the motherboard, you will have to install the DVD writer into a blank "Slot" on the upper case of the Desktop. you can go to www.youtube.com for demo videos on how to do this Shannon. And PLEASE do it yourself; you will teach yourself something and it will be fun!!!

I plugged the wrong USB cord into my camera. What is most likely to be broken, the USB cord plugin or the camera plugin?


USB cables are standardized. If the ends fit the openings, the cable will work. There is one exception, certain USB cables are used to recharge batteries. These are missing the 2 communication wires. Unless something is physically broken, or the cable was jammed into the opening with great force, just try another cable.

Hi, Flat panel television instruction manuals are not very easy reading material, there are many connections on the back-you need to plug in some sort of input-always coming from the " out to T.V." of another device. Cable coax's are most common-the cables aren't very flexible that's one way to tell them apart from an RCA cable-usually with red, white, yellow,green and blue colored ends. The red, white and yellows are what we'll focus on for now-the yellow's are for a picture-connect them from an " out to TV" to " video input" on the back of tv, then for sound likewise- red and white colored from an"audio out " to "audio in " if coming from a VCR-you may use the rather un-flexible " screw on" coax connector-same if coming from a satellite/cable box-some satellites require tuning tv channel to # 60 for a picture-other wise it's channel 3 or 4. although you will get a better picture using yellow, red & white rca cords. I hope this has been of some help, prodzilla

Suggest you connect the plextor to the SATA port 3 and set it's jumper to Master. All SATA drives are seen as Master drives. (Check the serial number on your WD SATA drive "Primary".
Enter the bios menu. Within page 3-7 section 3-3 Advanced bios features. Check, 1st, 2nd and third boot devices.
Floppy disk drive as, 1st boot device. 2nd boot device, "Primary WD SATA port 1". 3rd boot device, CD-ROM drive SATA port 2, Plextor 880sa drive". Save and exit the bios. If you no longer have you're manual you can download it from the link provided below;
http://ftp.abit.com.tw/pub/download/fae/ic7-g_eng_v101.pdf
Check page 3-13. See OnChip serial ATA Mode. As noted, the RAID option is available when the item "OnChip serial ATA" is set as [Enhanced Mode].
