Unfortunately, even if you dried the system, the damage might already be done, and it's more than likely out of warranty due to liquid damage. My advice would be to contact Sony about a repair, sorry.

Rowentta DW2190 Iron spills a lot of water from bottom. what did I do wrong?

Hello Lims,

I am getting no hits (USA market)
on any such "Rowentta DW2190" however...
(so I cannot even verify if it is self defrosting)... Oh well.

There are a number of reasons a refrigerator will spill water...

Chief among them are water & ice door service... or poor door seal allowing EXCESSIVE frost formation. Check the DEFROST PAN is NOT overflowing... Use clean sheets of typing paper to see where water MAY be coming from.

If there is NO water in the pan... check for BLOCKED internal drain. Use warm (never HOT) water to free clogged drains... else REVERSE air pressure ... (like lungs... not compressors).

Visually check the door gaskets for damage... and obstructions.

Check that your frig is square with the doors and everything closes fully. Do the dollar bill pull test all around the door gaskets to make sure you feel good resistance EVERYWHERE.

Ice-cube fill (adjustable (evidenced by stuck cubes)).
Ice cube door open... allowing thaw in bin (likely cube blocking closure)...

Comment me back with progress or questions...
I like refrigerators (almost all the time).

Imy son has a playstation 3 used from gamestop and it has the ring of death what can i do?

This is known as the "Yellow Light of Death" for the PlayStation 3 (ironic, I know, because it blinks the red light). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to actually melt and bridge or connect. Once this happens it causes a short in the board giving you the error you have now. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.

If your unit is not under warranty, then go to We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at or call toll free at 888-389-3038.

How do u eject game from playstation 3 console?

On the front of the machine there is a flat spot with labels on it . The triangle in the middle is the eject but the system has to be turned on which is to the right of the triangle both are just touch to activate. ig machine does not come on with a green light after a few then ther is a power switch on back left of machine. After switching on you will need to still touch the on sensor i mentioned on the front. Now most importantly your son may have his ps3 password protected and i cant help you with that but the password usually is only for the internet part of the functions. Hope this helps. please leave feed back if this helped. have a nice day
