Question about Sony SVR-3000 TiVo

Continuous reboot problem

My machine is locked in a cycle where it keeps trying to reboot but never quite gets there. most of the time, i get a grey screen that reads "welcome, powering up." after some time, it progresses to the "almost there, just a few minutes more" message before going back to the original grey screen without ever completing the reboot. it keeps repeating over and over again.

    I used to have the same problem... now the TIVO stopped booting up at hte gray screen "Powering up..." level. Suspected the BIOS Chip malfunctioning but the problem described here can be caused by a ...bad 80 GB ATA Maxtor boot disk sector or so...

Most likely, if your unit is not powering up to the TiVo Central screen, you have a hard drive problem. You might consider a replacement TiVo hard drive.

My wahser won't agitate, spin or rinse


In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. If the machine is getting to the spin cycle and still turning slowly but not draining the water, the pump is probably the culprit, either being locked up or in most cases something like a sock, etc. is stuck in it preventing it from turning. This is usually indicated by a humming sound during the spin/drain section with no water draining.In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. You can usually look and visually see the spot where the switch should be and if damaged. How to repair :
1) Unplug the machine. 2) At the head, or control panel, find the two screws that hold it to the case. Some are on the left and right front lower corners of the panel, and some are vertical facing s on the rear left and right side. Also on some models they are in the front but you have to pull the end caps off the sides of the control panel. 3) Remove the 2 screws and then pull the panel from the lower part of it towards you and roll it backwards. 4) Disconnect the lid switch connection in the the middle where the two grey wires and the green wire block connects to the body of the machine, usually near the middle under the panel. 5) with a flathead screwdriver pop out the two brass retainer clips on the right and left side. 6) Open the lid slightly where you can grab the case, not the tub, just the case, and pull forward and surprise!!! You just took the complete top, sides and front of the machine off. The lid switch will be attached to this portion so located it, remove the two screws that hold it in place, under the lid, and swap out with a new one. This is a cheap repair, just take your time and you'll be fine.

HP Laserjet 4345MFP
Backlight on printer display does not light.
Counts up the 256MB memory then HP logo (3 sizes) appears (just visible)
The 3 lights keep cycling on the display. Thats it, does nothing else.
It has been left overnight and continues to display the logo and cycling 3 lights.
Rear DC Cont Fan is turning. No other fans or activity with machine.
When ADF/scanner/mfp or hard disk are disconnected it does recognise this and throws an error and asks for reboot.
I have tried cold reset, nvram init. and hard disk init. but no difference.
Your thoughts?

Quit trying to charge from the computer, cause a lot of them don't put out enough juice to totally charge the nano.  Turn the thing off and plug this thing into an AC wall charger for about 8 hours.  Then turn the thing on  and press the center button and menu button at the same time to reset the thing.  Then make sure you got the latest itunes edition and plug your cord into the nano and into the computer.  You will be prompted to sync this thing.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

Open the control panel and check the fuse inside at the lid switch. Also check continuity on the lid switch and the micro switch. They are all located in the same lid switch block.
Check the position of the plunger that activates the lid switch. It can become dislodged with a off-balance load.

Stopped operating in the spin cycle


With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
