I have a Sony PSP that I have had for about a month. I have been playing multiple games. Then, one day my PSP would only read one disk. You could select it off the main menu of the PSP, but it wouldn't load. It makes clunking noises when you load it the game that won't work. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

I'm trying to add a photocell light sensor to a device that sits under a liquor bottle that lights it up Only when it's dark. However the photocell (or at least I'm pretty sure it's a photocell) only completes the circuit when there is light shining on it, rather than when there is not. I removed the photocell from a broken night light that's been gathering dust in my junk cabinet. The night light logically lit up at night, but the sensor seems to be doing the opposite. Does anyone know what component I would require to reverse the effect of the cell? The first picture below is the circuit wired simply on a mini breadboard with a LED to test for continuity. The photocell is the only other component on the board, and is causing the LED to shine dimly. The second picture has a light shining on the photocell. It is hard to see, but the LED is lit much more brightly. I want to reverse this effect. All suggestions are welcome!

I upgraded Firefox to the newest version a week or so ago and I have been encountering problems in Google Docs and Pandora. Google Docs shows an error message (pictured below) and Pandora loads for a bit then displays an error message (also pictured below). Both sites work in Internet Explorer on the same computer. I can't find anyone else encountering this problem online. Any advice as to how to fix this? Thanks, Noah

I am trying to write a program that calculates pi. I am doing it in Visual C++. I am using the Gregory-Leibniz series. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to do the division necessary. It isn't returning decimals. For example, 4/3 returns 1, and 1/2 is returning 0. Is it even possible to get it to return decimals? I've tried using int, float and short as the answer variable and none worked.

I'm having problems downloading PDF's. When I click PDF in the second link, the page opens on a new tab reloading the second link's page effectively looping. Since I have just 'upgraded' to Adobe ver 9.1I had wanted to know if this is a temporary site problem or just me.

Ok, this is the second time it happened, when I opened up instructables, I was logged into someone else's name. Today, I was Austinbwood when I came. If this is happening to other people, they could be changing personal information. I have no idea where the problem is, but it has happened twice.

I hooked up 12 3mm red leds in parallel and then powered them with 2x 1.5v rechargeable batteries, and it worked, until 2 blew 3 got damaged and they all started flickering. Why, and what should I do to fix it? Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks Big

When I tried to access KI today, (www.knexinnovation.net), I noticed 3 problems. Firstly, for the first 10 minutes, I got error 404 and mediawiki errors every time. Then, the layout had changed to the "VBulletin" style on silver stuff and everything was different. Thirdly, I couldn't log in. Does anyone know what's going on?

I love Instructables but I am constantly having problems logging in. I reset my password and it shows me logged in but I can't download pdf files. It will just flip screens and keeps asking me to login again. I clean my computer's cookies and cache and sometimes this helps but it seems to me that Instructable has a problem because I don't have this problem with any other websites I use. Whenever I clean my computer, I then have to re-enter everything to all the other sites which is a real pain. This has been going on for a long time....at least a year. Will this ever be fixed? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hey guys i just made this circuit ( pic provided ), The problem is when i clap the led that indicates the circuit is off turns off (power goes to the relay coil) but the circuit off indicator led turns back on after a few sec and the relay does turn on at all. (Yes the relay works) And another thing I observed is that when i take the coil wires off and attach them to an led instead of relay it works correctly and the led stays on till i clap again to turn the circuit off.
