    I have 2 batts, acts same with either, both are charged, 1 is new. Does not power up without batt. No spark at recep. Problem started when I used wireless keyboard to go in sleep mode. Powered back up in less than a minute, then pressed sleep button again. Maybe HDD is locked up or stuck in hibernate mode. Tried F2, F8, F10, nothing. HDD light comes on for 5 secs, then goes out. Disc drive will open, CD will not boot the PC.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to drain the electrostatic charge of the motherboard. Take out the battery then unplug the power adapter from your laptop. Press and hold the power button for 15 secs. Put everything back in then power ON the computer.

Your response will be highly appreciated.

Thank you for using Fixya!

It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop.
If the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop. While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

    Do you get any display on the screen when the laptop is powered on? Or does it stay blank?

Hi my samsung crt tv come up on start up but couldn't stay for more than few seconds before it goes standby. I've tried to check settings but could not even get anywhere before it goes back to standby


Whenever a television starts doing this the motherboard/main board and or power supply is usually at fault. The power supply can usually be rebuilt for around $150 depending upon the knowledge and skill of your local television repair shop. To replace the parts is usally more expensive then it would be to purchase another television ($300 and up). Are you sure this is the model number of your television because this model number is not for a CRT television. For troubleshooting you can unplug it overnight to try and power cycle it but it sounds like your problem is beyond doing any type of power cycle to get the television back going again. It would need the repair shop or to be discarded for another.

Hi- we are having a problem with our ps3....it just started overheating....we forgot to open the door...I heard the fan kick in...so we turned off the ps3 to let it cool down....now the ps3 is running...we...


try video reset

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

standby mode press hold power........"beep"......"beep"..release power button

then try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Wont start messages comes up saying correct hard disk not found


your hard drive may be dying. or the file system may be corrupted.

before you get a new hard drive there are some tricks to try.

#1 remove the HDD and boot it up without it in, then turn off and put the HDD back in and boot again.

#2 rebuild the file system in the recovery menu

#3 rebuild the database in the recovery menu


To get to the recovery menu you need to press and hold the power button when the ps3 is in standby mode untill you hear a double beep then release. sometimes the ps3 will go back to standby mode before it does the double beep if it does just release the button and press and hold again real fast and wait for double beep.

here is what mine does

ps3 standby(red light) press hold power...........beep...............beep.........standby again, release hold............beep..................double beep ..release power button.

from the recovery consol you can rebuild the file system and database sometimes when they are corrupted it has same symptoms as a dying HDD.

P.S. rebuilding the file system and database will not lose any of your ps3 data, other options will though like the restore ps3 and format HDD.
if the above tricks dont work try updating the firmware, if your at the current firmware you can re-install it from the recovery menu as well using a usb memory stick or a cd with the firmware on it.

if all that doesnt help it looks like its time to get a new HDD, but at least you can upgrade it to a bigger ps3 now. any sata laptop HDD should work. i think a 160gb HDD is only $50ish.

40'' Sony Bravia goes into standby with the light blinking 9 times


I finally managed to solve this problem by unplugging everything - scarts - HDD cables - power etc and left it for an hour. When I turned it back on again the problem had sorted itself out.

Intermittent lamp turn off


I was told by the repair service to unplug the power cord for about 5min. This resets the internal computer. I think this helps but does not cure the cause. Good luck.

SONY GRAND WEGA


I have a KDF60XS955. When I power it on, the fan comes on, the standby light flashes green several times, the lamp comes on and the standby light goes to solid green. This lasts for less than 5 seconds then the lamp goes out, followed by ~30 green standby flashes, the lamp coming on with the solid green standby light for about 5 seconds then shuts off the lamp again. I can hear/feel the fan running the enitre time. This cycle continues endlessly. Please help!
