Devices FAQ, Suggestions and more!

Unused/Abandoned/Forgotten/Outdated Devices

Lithium-ion batteries (inside almost every small electronics and devices) degrade over time, particularly if they're drained to zero or left unused for long periods (like an old iPhone or tablet in a box/drawer). So if you have devices/electronics or gadgets that you are not using, or don't need it anymore - sell it, donate it, or give it away to friends/family or people in need! Below are some suggested places you can use to get rid of your old/unused devices and electronics:

Water damaged devices icon

What to do (the proper way) to revive or save your phone that was in water spill, water damage, liquid damage/spill, phone pool damage, ocean/beach phone drain/damage, phone party spill - and the phone water damage goes on and on, etc...?

Follow these steps to increase the chances of reviving and fixing your water damaged device(s):

  1. Right off the start - DO NOT Charge the phone if its been exposed to any sort of water/liquid. NEVER Charger it, ever.
  2. Turn off the phone ASAP (if the screen still lights up and works)!
  3. If the screen is blank/black, but you still hear sounds/ring tones/vibrations, etc. - put it to vibrate, DO NOT CHARGE IT, and put the phone sitting straight against the wall/object/box/etc. - this is to keep the water away from the circuit board (which is usually at upper top of the phone/tablet/device) so it can NATURALLY dry out the water, or at least to keep it away from the important area of the phone (the circuit/logic board).
  4. NEVER use the 'rice-drying' method! It's not a 'rice-drying' method - it's the device 'rice-killing' method. The rice will slowly spread the water/liquid throughout your entire device in an 'attempt' to dry-it out, but in FACT, that will actually damage your device even more.
  5. Contact us ASAP so we can attempt to revive your water damaged devices as quickly and as efficiently as possible!

YAMAHA RX-V473 (and other models) Receiver Repair Guide

PUBLISHED: 11/29/2016 by Dr. Digital - Fix All Digital

YAMAHA RX-V473 Receiver icon

PROBLEM: Flashing red light when Power button pressed, no display, no output sound. Solution found!!!

PS1/PS2/PS3

Cause: The voltage in the power supply section is abnormal.

Supplementary information: The protection function worked due to a defect or overload in the power supply.

Turning on the power without correcting the abnormality will cause the protection function to work in 1 second and the power supply will be shut off.

When the protection function worked due to abnormal voltage in the power supply section:

  • In this particular case the displayed fault was PS1_PRT: 000L

The CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM IS IN THE TRANSFORMER!

LOCATION: Secondary 6.2VAC winding (2x ORANGE Wires and 1x Black Wire).

The wire on this particular winding is Aluminum!? It is silver looking. (The rest of the windings wires are Copper wire.)

THE PROBLEM AREA IS THE SOLDER OVER THE TWISTED JOINT of the Orange and Black extensions and the Aluminum winding wire.

REPAIR PROCEDURE:

  1. Vertically cut through the outer Blue tape.
  2. Carefully remove the clear cote and the solder from the twisted joints (3 joints: 2x Orange wires, 1x Black wire).
  3. Use a pair of pliers to re-twist tightly the joints (DO NOT apply high force). Apply extra solder over the twisted joints.
  4. Apply isolation tape and restore the blue tape over the repaired area.
  5. Check resistance ~0.3 OHM between Orange wire and Black wire; ~0.6 OHM between the Orange wires.
