It most likely means the enclosure has failed. Especially if it is not making and odd sounds. 4 out of every 5 of those things just needs a new enclosure. If you need the data, then break the label on the rear, Unscrew the 2 screws, and test the drive in a computer or different enclosure.

My electric wrap continues to blink and not come on regular! What do I do??

You may have a damaged power cord or a defective thermostat in the electric wrap. Unplug the cord and inspect it from the plug to the wrap. Look for crushed and broken wires, especially near the plug and at the wrap.

Plug in the wrap and note the rate at which the wrap's indicator light blinks. If the blink rate is regular, the thermostat may be defective.

If the blink rate is irregular, CAREFULLY and gently flex the power cord while watching the indicator light. If bending the cord
changes the blinking rate, you have found the area of damage.

If the problem persists, unplug and discard the wrap. Repairing broken internal wires can expose you to an electric shock or cause a fire when you attempt to put the "repaired" wrap back in service. Your best strategy is to discard the defective wrap and buy a new replacement-- the safety risks are much greater than the price of a new wrap.

Chances are you have an issue with the main board. Those can be purchased on eBay for around $20.00. If you go the route of changing that board be sure to match the number of your board that is in the TV, don't search by model number as this model used several different boards and some are not interchangeable. One word of caution, use static precautions when handling the board, it should come in a static proof bag of wrapped in static bubble wrap ( generally pink in color) be at the set before unpacking the new board, just walking across carpet with it in your hand can damage a good board.Good luck!!

A blue ray home theater and a 46 inch LED TV to be packed in bubble wrap. What would be the length and normal expense will come?

Movers are no liable for any actual damage. They use a pay per pound scale so if you have a 1500 dollar television and it weighs 10 lbs and it gets damaged, and they only pay 30 cents a pound. you are only going to get 3 dollars. IT is best to get it insured separately.

How can i wrap a vase so that it won't shatter nor scratch?

The best idea to wrap a vase i to use bubble wrap. You should first of all gather some bubble wrap or some clothes and put them inside the vase so to roughly fill its emptiness. Then wrap a lot of bubble wrap around the vase, both on the sides and on top and bottom, rolling the wrap round and round and fixing it with tape. make sure its well padded and soft on all sides and corners. Then place the vase in a small carton box that fits it entirely and fill the remaining space with more bubble wrap so that the vase won't have enough room to move around. Then close the box well and write FRAGILE in red on the box.

Cut off damaged wire ends and use a crimp type splice to resecure. Wrap each splice with quality black electrician's tape then tie wrap wires together, tie wrap wire bundle to secure points, then apply more electricians tape to bundle to water proof. Try and find some spiral wrap to protect the wire bundle as a top coat

Media player not switching on. Was in suitcase in car for about 8 hours, temperature was about 16 degrees celsius. Didn't think that would affect it. Thanks


Any fault arising from the car journey would probably have less to do with heat inside a suitcase than with movement. The Hard Drive inside is extremely sensitive to damage by jarring from potholes or uneven road surfaces.

Shake the media player gently to see if you can hear any knocking inside that might indicate physical damage to the hard drive.

Check the fuse in the power cable. Check the AC/DC adaptor is working.

If none of the above is the cause, then there there may an internal fault for warranty repair, if still under warranty, or for you to carefully open and investigate, with the option to remove the hard drive and back up any wanted data on it to another storage device.

I hope this helps

The operator of the chair ran over an extention cord and it wrapped around the wheel. The lights on the top row all flash and the other lights don't come on, except for a second when you first push...

Check the freewheel levers in the front of the chair to make sure both are in the drive mode. If they are in drive mode and you are still getting the error then there was damage done to the brake on the motor that the cord got wrapped around and it will have to be replaced Sorry Hope this helps

Excessive vibration when blades are engaged. No visible problems. Started after a rag wrapped around one blade.

If it started when a rag wrapped around the spindle mandrel? You may have damaged the mandrel. Check where they bolts onto the deck, if the mounts are damaged, this could give you the vibration. You could also have done something as simple as bent a blade.
