    One of the
    recent updates (2.41) has caused issues for lots of people
    (read comments in this article) http://www.slipperybrick.com/2008/07/son...

    one person suggested formatting your hard drive,
    and on the next boot the ps3 should prompt you to download firmware,
    which theoretically should fix it. At this point it may be worth a
    shot, you should go to sony's support site for ps3 and follow the instructions on how to do that, or just check out some forumns, don't give up hope!

Way too complicated for me. I have 2 sergers and I have them serviced by a sewing machine mechanic who has access to all the repair manuals.

Blue screen occasionally


The next time it happens, write down the code that is displayed on the screen and let me know. Many times the code given will point to a particular problem. It sounds as though it might be a memory problem, which happens more often when several things are running at once. Could be bad RAM, a corrupt device driver or even a system fan that is allowing the unit to to get too hot(but usually those just shut down the computer completely).

It was working fine and them just stopped it is not that old and was not making noises HELP!!


Vacuum cleaners have electric motors in them that require proper airflow to pass over them to keep them cool. Many vacuum cleaners have a thermal (heat) sensitive shut off mechanism built in. This mechanism should prevent the burn out of the motor. If you run a vacuum too long with a clogged hose or clogged filters (especially bagless vacuums) or clogged bags, that is essentially choking the vacuum for air and not allowing it to breath properly. This will cause it to overheat and shut down. Most of the big box store purchased vacuums have very thin wires in the motor windings and can only do this a few times before the motor completely fails. If your vacuum has been shutting down, then cooling off and restarting after about 30 to 45 minutes, then shutting down after only a few minutes of use, your machine is probably clogged up or the filters are compacted.

Fell down three times and now its not reading any disc but it still working. u can still go online with my ps3 slim(250)


Hello

Check the PS3's vents or its location if the power button alternately flashing red and green. This means it is running hot. Shut it off and wait for it to cool down.

Shut down the system if the power button flashes red and fails to operate. This means it has overheated and has reached a critical phase. Move it to another location where the vents are not blocked and it isn't in an enclosed area. Don't restart it until it cools down.

Open your PS3's disc tray and spray the inside of the machine with some compressed air, which comes either in a can or in a squeeze ball. This air will help remove any larger particles of dust or dirt that may have accumulated on the machine's lens.

Insert the cleaning CD into the disc tray and close it. These CDs often have no data on them and instead have a small brush along the bottom that cleans the laser as it spins over it.

Follow any on-screen instructions or paper instructions that may have been included with your lens-cleaning CD until the laser has been successfully cleaned, and then remove the CD.

Restore the PS3 to its default settings if the PS3 isn't able to read any discs. Go to "Settings," and then "System Settings." Under "System Settings," select "Restore Default Settings" and press the "X" button on your controller to restore the settings. Once the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will appear.

Check to see whether the machine will load games or DVDs properly. If it still doesn't, you may have an internal hardware issue that requires sending your machine to Sony for professional repairs.

Ejecting a Stuck CD in Mac OSX


  • First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu.
  • If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X.
  • Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
  • If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar.
  • Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder
  • Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button.
  • Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism.
  • Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray.
  • Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. )
  • If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

My cd is stuck in macbook and is not being read by my computer it only makes a funny sound when i reload it


A CD or DVD disc can become stuck in your Macintosh. It may not be appearing on your desktop or could be causing the computer to lock up if the computer cannot recognize it properly.

ON TURN ON THE FAN STARTS UP THEN SHUTS DOWN, DISC LED ON SOLID


This sounds like an overheat problem. Check that the cpu cooling fan is not clogged with dirt, if it is you can agitate the dust with an old dry paint brush and hoover it out carefully. Does everything else appear to run normally before it shuts down? Chris 07926-106150 http://www.motherboardsrus.net

Outside Unit blowing air but not cooling and slight buzzing sound


The compressor is not coming on and some part of that unit has failed. Do you hear any clicking sounds along with the buzzing sound? Recommend that you shut the unit down (remove power from it) until a service tech can listen to it try to start up.

The power company-installed load management system is probably a red hearing. That system will either fully turn off the unit or allow it to turn on/start up.
