Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook

1 Answer

Did you have any resolution for the Satellite power problem?

Did you do anything with it or did you give up on trying. I am just wondering if it is worth taking it to a tech. I would probably replace the motherboard myself if I get any indication from the wisdom of this forum that it is the motherboard.

Serial number 85886 was wondering what the guitar was worth. Washburn D15L guitar

To be certain, I'd take it in to get appraised.

That said, looking elsewhere, it's probably not worth a lot, though I couldn't find that specific model on a quick search.

How do you change the transmission fluid on a 2000 Saturn LS1?

Oh, I LOVE these kinds of conversations....How much is your car worth? According to Kelly BlueBook, a 2000 Saturn with 100K miles on the clock could be worth anything from about $1700 and $2700 depending on the condition and what equipment it has (as of the date of this post). I would venture to say that the transmission can be replaced for less than that.

Then , there is the "what is it worth to YOU" question. I am currently driving a car that I bought for $150 because the owner did not think it was "worth" the cost of a $2500 engine. I replaced the engine and have been driving the car completely trouble-free for over 5 years now. I have done NOTHING to it except change the oil an put gas in it during this time. (it is just now getting close to needing front brakes.)

Anyway, do the math: $150 (original cost) + $2500 (engine replacement) = $2650 total car cost. Divide that by 64 (the total number of months I have been driving the car) = $41.40 / month. NOW how much was that car worth? - you SURE can't buy a new one for that!!! Where I live, that would just about make a "down payment" on a monthly bus pass!

A service tech is probably the best person to ask what the car is worth. They can look at the condition of the ENTIRE car and see how much work is going to be needed to restore everything to good working condition. Have them check the engine, transmission, the steering and suspension, brakes, exhaust, computer network, all the accessories like power windows, door locks, etc., and have him give you an honest evaluation of the "big picture" before arbitrarilly making any decisions about what the car is worth.

My recommendation is get the car checked out by a professional repair technician who knows his stuff. Don't mess around with the transmission yourself. You will probably only be wasting money that could be better spent for either replacing the transmission, or putting a down payment on a newer vehicle.

I was given a Sony KP-61XBR48 television. It has sound but no picture. I understand this model doesn't use a lamp. I'm wondering if the unit would be worth fixing and suggestions as to the...

If you have experience in electronics, try replacing IC3005. You will need a soldering iron, solder and solder wick. If not, you could take it to a authorized service provider, but would probably be cheaper to get a new set.

The Windchaser tech guys determined that the compressor on our portable AC unit failed, and they sent a refurbished replacement for the whole unit. I'm wondering what the options might be for salvaging...

It probably is not worth trying to salvage it, which is the reason you received a refurbished unit. It would really depend on what is wrong with it. Unless you are trained to handle refrigerant, I would recommend you not trying to mess with the compressor.Unless it had a leak, it should be under pressure, which could hurt you if you attempt to open it up. As far as the rest of the system goes you may use parts off of it to make repairs on the refurbished unit, should the occasion arise, providing it is the same model.

Is it worth repairing my Samsung UP-D371Wi PAl digital camcorder. When I turn it on the screen is just blue and you cant get any picture. Even when I try and replay the tape it won't do anything either.

It depends on what you spent on it.I will at least give you some cost information.Ship to them...probably $10-$14,free return ship.Parts,minimum 20% markup on parts cost which they will charge.$90 part will cost almost $ $7 min.Labor,$40-$60/hour.Probably minimum 1 hour just from take apart put together,part install,maybe a little more.If you want to,you can send it somewhere and they will give you a free repair estimate but you could waste the shipping if you do not fix.To get a more accurate labor cost,call United Radio Service in Syracuse,NY.I used to work there and I am sure labor has changed since then.They are online and have a toll free #.Anyhow,if you paid like $300-$400 for it,it would probably be best to replace.New warranty and all that too.
Good luck! Greg

Asus Eee PC 701 display problem

Your screen is probably delaminating and as it seperates, the lcd inner panel is failing. The screen is going to have to be replaced, they should not be serviced, the bezel on the lid has to be removed and the screen panel replaced. Here is a service manual for the notebook. The below guide takes a few minutes to load because of the pictures, but well worth it.
