You'll need to reflow the CPU and gpu with hot air gun pretty cheap on eBay. You'll need a phillips screwdriver to take it apart. If it just freezes on game discs it's a bad laser but that's not your case you have beginning signs of yellow light of death. If it doesn't come on at all now then it's the internal power supply.

1965 Singer 237. The needle suddenly freezes up when I change speed while stitching. Hand wheel and take-up lever continue to go up and down. What is causing the needle to freeze up?


Could be lack of fresh oil on the needlebar's moving parts. Use good quality sewing machine oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and follow up with heated air from a hairdryer.

Sounds like water in the line. You could try wrapping the gas line
with insulation, like it was a water pipe.
Can't the gas co. flush the line? OR suggest a fix for a valued customer?

Ps3 60gb freezing


Try this use your vacuum to suck out any dust that is in machine from front and back. Use compressed air (duster used on electronics) and spray the cd area and back area again, vacuum out. If this doesn\'t help then Call Sony PlayStation for replacement of machine.

My Sony PS3 will beep three times and shut down on its own shortly after it is turned on, any idea what it is?


It sounds like the "yellow light of death". After beeping three times does it flash to a yellow light at all? If so your hard drive is no longer good and will either a. need to be replaced by a professional, or b. buy a new ps3.

It is what we all fear on the ps3.

If there is no yellow light, the ps3 is probably just doing a hard shutdown because something is freezing. a few things you can try are. 1. put in a different game, loading that game may be whats causing it to freeze. 2. do the fan test to make sure its not overheating

Playstation 3 freezing


All you need to do is replace the harddrive and/or reformat the current one which will require removing it and using a PC to reformat it if it will read. If not , simply replacing it will work I would recommend an upgrade at that point as well if you would like. I upgraded to 250GB when this happened to me. System works just fine now.

Playstation 3 problem


Hello.
If it doesn't even load to the XMB or only gets to the XMB and freezes, then it's the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and try a different one. It will ask you to format it, say yes, then it will turn off and back on.

Also, just to keep up your machine, get some compressed air and use the straw it comes with to blow out your PS3 to remove most of any dust build up.
