    heater shuts off after 10 minutes and lose power. I will unplug it for about 15 minutes and plug it back in but will stay on for about 10 minutes before it shuts off again !! Have repeated this procedure many times and I have the same results.

    I have two Lasko 5132 heaters with the same problem. Also, the plugs get very hot, but my model number is not considered subject to the recall.

    I cleaned the intakes and it still turns off after restarting by pulling plug and waiting 10 minutes. Any other solutions to this?

  • Anonymous Jan 07, 2008

    heater starts to smell after about 5 minutes. thanks in advance.

  • guest100 Jan 08, 2008

    I just got off the phone with Lasko and they have informed me that the intake vents in my heater are clogged. They said 9 times out of 10 this is the problem when you are experiencing a heater that shuts off and needs to be unplugged in order for it to run for a minimum amount of time. On high, my heater will immediately shut off.. On low, it will stay on for about 5 minutes. I will try to clean it out later this evening and post back on here.

    how do you unclog it?

  • astar4848 Feb 27, 2008

    I have the same problem with it, it shuts off after only a few minutes on low, forget about high! will try cleaning it, if that doesn't work, I don't know what I will do, it's only a few months old. This should NOT be happening.

The air intake vents in the rear were clogged with dust. They needed to be brushed and vaccumed.

    Ten years later, I was going to throw it out, because I brushed and vacuumed and the filters looked fine, but it still wouldn't work. I figured why not look inside, so I took it apart and found it was filthy. I cleaned it out and now it works again. I doubt I will get 10 more years, but 1 or 2 would be great.

I just took one apart with the same beeping problem. It wouldn't come on at all. I was going to clean the input filters although they didn't look like they really needed it. As I took off the 8 screws and removed the back cover to the unit, the thermocouple popped loose as it was apparently hot glued to the back cover somewhere near the top. I checked the fan and it moved fine, no apparent connection problems and set the unit back upright and plugged it in and it worked. The only thing that changed in removing the cover was that I spinned the motor fan manually to check the bearings and I broke loose the hot glue holding the thermocouple. Either the thermocouple doesn't like being operated in an upright mode (not likely) or the fan unit incorporates an RPM feedback to the controller to shut down the unit should the fan sieze up (more likely). Either way, it's operating again.

Please follow the instructions below to start up your console in safe mode.
You can do this by: Putting the unit into Stand By. (solid red light on the power button)
- Press and hold down the power button once in standby for 3 beeps including the initial one when you first press the power button.
- Once you hear the third beep the unit will power off into standby mode again, when it does, release the power button.
- Then press and hold it down again, this time until you hear 2 quick beeps in a row, usually the 3rd and 4th beeps.
- Once you hear the quick beeps release the power button again and you will be presented with a message telling you to plug in your ps3 controller, do this.
- You will have 6 options appear on the screen. Please be aware that choosing some of these options can cause you to lose data on your machine.
From here, please choose option 4 ( Rebuild database ).

This is a problem with the Playstation 3 software becoming corrupt. It is very easy to fix if you follow my simple steps.

Please note, this method will erase your hard drive so any save games you had will be lost. All your online trophies will be preserved.

Step 1.

Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2.

Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

Step 3.

Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4.

Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

Step 5.

A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says.

The Playstation 3 will now go through the system restore process and re-install the system software back to out of the box status. You will have to set your user name, date and time and network settings again.

Once you have completed the above, the Playstation 3 will restart and spring back to life again!

I hope this helps.

Hi about my ps3 no video out i hold the front power switch until i listen the quick beet but still no HDMI signal. please help me.


Ok, its not the 2 quick beeps you need to listen to.
Turn the PS3 into standby, then press and hold the power button.
It will beep as soon as you press the button, then beep once more 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep, that should reset the video resolution to standard definition and you should now get a picture on the screen. If it does not work post a reply here and I will assist your further.

Thank you for using FixYa

My PS3 wont start games when im signed in on PSN


HI I HAD THAT PROBLEM SO I ASKED THE EXPERT..HE SOLVED MY PROBLEM! BASICALLY THERE A CORRUPTED DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER WHICH NEEDS FIXING.
QUICK STEPS: PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY LOSE YOUR SAVED DATA SO BEST TO BACK UP SYSTEM TO A USB FIRST.
ONCE YOU BACKED UP YOUR SYSTEM FOLLOW THIS STEPS ONLY IF YOUR SURE. THIS WORKED FOR ME, IT WORKS 90% OF THE TIME SO I WAS TOLD BY THE EXPERT. REALLY DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH DATA HAS BEEN CORRUPTED.
QUICK STEP:
  • TURN PS3 TO STANDBY BY PRESSING THE BUTTON THATS ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON,YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5SECONDS LATER, THEN THE THIRD BEEP. HOLD BUTTON DOWN UNTIL THE LIGHT TURNS RED THEN MOVE FINGER.
  • NOW SWITCH ON PS3 HOLDING POWER BUTTON ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON DOWN YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5 SECS LATER, THEN TWO BEEPS TOGETHER.LET GO OF BUTTON WHEN YOU HEAR TWO BEEPS.
  • IT SHOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CORRUPT DATA. AGREE TO IT. SOON YOU SHOULD HAVE A 6 OPTION MENU COME UP.
  • PRESS NUMBER 3...RESTORE SYSTEM FILES
  • IT SHOULD THEN RESTART COMPUTER.
  • NOW TRY PLAYING YOUR GAME ONLINE.
  • ITS MEANT TO WORK AS IT DID FOR ME.
IF IT DOESNT WORK THAT MEANS THERES ANOTHER PROBLEM. I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO ASK THE EXPERT. THEY TELL YOU STEP BY STEP, THEY FIXED MINE IN HALF HOUR. ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY.IF THEY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM THAT IS! HOPE THIS HELPED YOU GUYS...GOODLUCK!
