Hi bdales21,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

Hope this helps and any questions let me know?

Cutts on and off


Sounds like a bad power supply or hard drive. Try replacing the hard drive first and see if that cures it. Otherwise, the DVR could be bad.

91 cadillac deville cutt off and crank right back up


Assuming the check engine light is not on, its going to be tough to diagnose.
You would have to find out what is going dead when the engine dies to find the problem.
I can say odds are it is something electrical since it starts back up, but that does not help much.
It could be the coil or something in the ignition, or a relay.

Battery light on 2001 audi a4 1.8t with new battery


I had a similar problem, it drove me mad, but i found it to be the fuse in the black box that connects to your + battery terminal, Just open up the box & check 4 a break in the metal strip. You can always disconnect the fuse & bolt lead on to end of fuse terminal (remove the fuse box) & drive your car to see if it happens again.

My headphone jack has snapped off, can it be repaired?


Yes simply cutt the old one off and buy a new plug. Most hadphones are fitted with a 3.5mm jack. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

On the right side of me JBL headphone doesnt work pulled the cord by accident


You must have broken the cable somewhere. If you move it around you might get it to come on, try it all over to determine where the break is. If very close to the headshell you might want to consider a new cable. If in the middle you can cutt it off before the break and fit a new plug. Then get an extension cable to complete the length.
If at the plug end follow what follows:
Cutt the old ******** and buy a new plug. Cutt it off 10cm before the plug end if the break is the plug section. Most hadphones are fitted with a 3.5mm jack. You will need to solder the wires on.

Avex universal remote programming for Viore TV


Have you tried the search method?Turn the tv on manually. Hold the TV button and the SELECT button down together on the Avex remote until the light comes on. Then use the up (or down) arrow button to scan the codes. Use the up (or down) button slowly but quicker than 30 seconds. If it comes across the right code the tv will turn off. If the set goes off press the power button on the remote to turn the tv back on and test the volume and channel buttons for operation. If some of the buttons don't work continue pressing the up (or down) button until the tv cutts off again. When (and hopefully if) you find the right code press the TV button on the remote again and the light will blink 3 times to indicate it is programmed. I do hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya.

The timer on button flashes


The timer light blinking indicates a failure in the TV set. Either the vertical circuit or horizontal circuit has failed and needs repair. It actually has nothing to do with the timer circuit.
In my experience its probably a vertical output chip, smalla capacitor and zener diode. There may also be an open resistor.
Cost to repair in the 50-75 dollar range usually
