How do i load music

heh heh... Okay, Make sure you're downloading them into the music folder on your memory stick. (You may have to create a folder that says "Music". The instructions manual tells you everything.)

Another problem is: 8385ace.jpg This is a pic of the instructions manual. It shows that you cannot save music within a folder inside another folder. When the PSP tries to read music, it searches in the "Music" folder. If there is another folder within the "Music" folder with music in it, the PSP can play it. But, if there is a folder in another folder, the PSP cannot find it and says there is no music. (That is really hard to explain!) Look at the picture and you'll get it. ^-^; If there are any questions you want to ask, please do!

I repaired my Dad's PS3 (YLOD) by heating up the

Ok first the heating up. You may find that the reflow did not quite get hot enough to melt the solder back onto the ball grid arrays enough. You could try another reflow and see if this works however every time you do a reflow you risk permanently damaging the CPU/GPU. The other thing you could try is bending the heat sink clamps a little to apply more pressure on the CPU/GPU but again this could cause more damage.

Secondly the display. If this reset sequence does not work then you have probably damaged the GPU in the reflow process :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

SA-AX560 Gets Hot, when at idle.

short answer is: (first) 100% normal. (kept clean inside, vents not blocked, and lots of fresh are to it , not put in a box or shelf ,locked away fresh cool are can not reach the RIG. Technics SA-AX560 long answer never read. (it's all about electronics, details.)the amp free manual shows it can make 170watts to a pair of speakers and uses 120vdc even with inputs that are only 1watt to the speaker and wastes 120watts, doing near nothingbut if all inputs are disable, the amp goes to 2watt stand by, my guess is you failed to try that. first.also when it wastes 120watts (line power AC) we know that the AC/DC power supply Q752 board. part of this waste too. Lots! worst off all the huge Sound AMP IC in this rig, the data sheet for it is now lost. (google lost it or? is lost)so I can not tell you if the final sound amps are Class A or CLASS AB.both use huge power, and CLASS "A" biased amps use the most but the power is huge to the speakers and is the best at "distortion free" and does 85watts RMS per channel. RMS is true power (by name and acts) LONG ANSWER:THE AMP DOES HAVE a 2 WATT STANDBY POWER guess not tested that. you.this is not a 2024 amp at all it is old. your amp is 24 years old today.NO class D amps in 2000 year. ive no idea what you looked at or touched. blind. and the amp is complex.Q752 will get hot as all 300watts of power passes though , this is the raw DC power reg. POWER PCB located.i see the prepower IC chips have a too hot pin that runs the fan control card, so with the prePA chips get too hot the fans speeds up.the Power amp transistors and the huge IC Called Sanyo RSU310R36p get hot. have 2 kenwood amps here both same Class "A" 100w per channel RMS wastes lots of power to make pure clean audio power, it does. Just keep it cool, using fresh cool air, do not block vents any any why.mine uses 100watts doing nothing, at all. ( but no crossover distortion in the final PA)lean to use standby mode. 2watts in yours.per the manual;

Hello all i have just purchased a full system of sony TA-V715 from a backyard sale unfortunately the ribbon cables are missing in the system. can anyone help me source the correct cables?

It's great that you found a Sony TA-V715 system, but it's unfortunate the ribbon cables are missing. To source the correct cables, you might want to try reaching out to Sony directly or checking with authorized Sony dealers. You could also search online marketplaces or electronics parts stores for compatible cables

I had the same problem with mine, if you haven't solved it by now, you need to do press these buttons in this exact sequence:
1) select radio
2) press "Band" to change from AM or FM to FM2
3) press preset #5
4) press volume down twice
5) press volume up twice
The screen should then display something along the lines of "the CD eject lockout has been disabled" and your eject button should then with properly

Sony hifi mhc gnz777d

Check the power supply: Ensure that your device is securely plugged into a working wall outlet1. If you're using a surge protector, try removing it and plugging the system directly into the wall. Reset the system: Unplug the power cord and confirm that the standby indicator is not lit. Then plug back in the power cord and turn on the system. At the same time, press and hold the FUNCTION and ON/Standby buttons until RESET appears on the display window. Consult the manual: The Sony MHC-GNZ777D Operating Instructions Manual provides detailed troubleshooting steps. If you don't have the manual, you can find it online. Remember, all user-configured settings, such as preset radio stations, Sleep Timer, pairing registration information, clock and network are reset to factory default setting after a reset
