I have a analog percision power supply. I put all new parts in it new fuse holder plug switch. I dont know how to connect them. Can u show me in lamens terms.

You really shouldn't mess about with power supplies if you don't know how to do them. It would be wrong for a Fixya member to explain it to you as even with the best advice going, you could electrocute yourself, or start a fire. We can't even be certain you have bought the correct safety parts. I suggest you take the device to a trained person - with the parts - and let them fix it for you. Before you do yourself an injury or kill yourself.

the cooling water of my F6a suzuki engine is mixing up to lubricating oil

If your head gasket is good, and you know this without a doubt, then you either have a cracked head/block or your head is warped. There is no other way for coolant to be getting in your oil. Heads aint any fun to take out and mess with but if you can do the work yourself it isn't to expensive to do. As long as your block is good. Good luck.

Hi, I have an acer aspire 5542 laptop it was bought 4 months in Italy where my uncle bought it as a gift for me. 3 days ago when i got home from work i tried to open the laptop and the lcd is just black. Since i dont have any background in troubleshooting, i immediately brought it to acer service center for check up, yesterday, i just received a call from them that the videocard is damaged and it will cost me 500$ to fix it and unfortunately the parts is not available in our country. meaning it will never be fixed... its so disappointing... please any advise is very much appreciated. Thanks!


Sorry to hear about your trouble. Unfortunately, most laptops have integrated graphics cards meaning, the graphic card is built into the motherboard. So, to replace the graphics card means you have to replace the motherboard, which can be more expensive(depending on who does the replacing).

You can try and find a replacement part yourself by visiting some online computer parts stores or maybe some locally.

I recommend trying the link below, which I use all the time.

If the laptop is under warranty, and the fault is not yours, Acer should not charge you. Depending on the circumstances maybe you can escalate the repair ticket to have the cost reduced or waived entirely.

Good luck.

Color will not match up

if your talking about the sets convergence does not line up and it looks like a 3-D picture than The best advice I can tell you at this point is to go to tvrepairkits.com and order the complete convergence kit for your model of TV set, no need to search and order multiple parts from different sources and pay multiple shipping fees! Go to http://www.tvrepairkits.com/xcart/home.php?partner=larry
The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC'S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC'S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases GOOD LUCK!!!
