    Instructions 1 Check the main power cord if the receiver fails to turn on. If it is unplugged or loose, securely plug it in to an electrical outlet. If this fails, try plugging the receiver in to another outlet. If the receiver starts, the previous outlet is damaged. Call an electrician to repair it. If this fails, try turning the receiver on with the remote. If this does not turn the receiver on, try turning it on with the power button on the receiver itself. If this works, change the remote's batteries. 2 Leave the receiver in "Standby" mode if it immediately goes into "Standby" when you turn it on. With the receiver still in "Standby," unplug the main power cord. Wait for around 30 seconds, then plug the receiver back in. Sponsored Links Watch Full Episodes Turn Your Computer into a TV!

If you still do not have any audio, press the "Input" left or "Input" right buttons on the front panel to select the appropriate input source. You can also set the receiver to automatically detect input signals and select the appropriate input source. To do this, access "Audio Select" from the main menu and select the "Auto" option. 4 Try factory resetting the receiver if you experience persistent audio or video issues. Press the "Standby/On" button on the receiver's front panel. Press and hold the "Tone Control" button, then press "Standby/On" again. Select the "Preset" option, then choose "Reset." Press "Standby/On."

SOURCE: new battery goes flat in single day

check for short circuits. it can be stripped wire that makes contact with the bike chassis. This can drain the battery. Also, Charging circuit may be dead (alternator and regulator).

SOURCE: bike will not start no power

Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?

SOURCE: my keeway wont start

Check the fuses. Is the kill switch on or shorting out? Disconnect it and then check for spark. Sidestand/centerstand should be up, Got a good battery?

I am unfamiliar with your Keeway and just trying to help. Don't give me a bad rating if I miss the mark on this one. Thanks.

I lost my yamaha r15 bike key


I had the same problem with my ZX10R losing the master key to which all other keys need to be coded from and I am assuming that Yamaha might use a very similar system in which the key gives off a signal that is picked up from your bikes electrical system even before the key is placed into the key barrel if your key is not chipped and is a regular type key then one can be cut fairly simple or replace the key barrel with a new one and set of keys . But if you have lost the master key that codes all other keys for your bike then it can become a very expensive job running into the thousands of dollars easy because replacement of the security system that is integrated into the whole bikes computer and electrical system is a very complex and expensive system to replace . There are key coders that you might be able to use costing a few hundred dollars instead of thousands of dollars and without the need to replace your bikes whole security system as well as people that offer the service to recode your keys depending on the difficulties of your system . You will need to start looking on youtube for methods or devices or people that offer that type of service and start by searching for lost key transponders or key codes and then finding out if your system is compatible and can be given a new code and set of keys hopefully this will be the case because there isn't much of away around other than the very expensive total system replacement of your bikes security system . I have lost my master key and can not get any replacements cut and I have lost nearly all of the copied spare keys that were originally coded from the master key so I have attached a key permanently hidden on my bike that the transponder can pick up as a signal and I use a normal key to fit in and turn the key barrel as normal without the fear of losing the coded key , as well adding a few anti theft devices of my own like a hidden cut off switch , disc brake lock with alarm etc so I can make key copies at any key cutting place for a few dollars .

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working


sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

This car has a chip key, you can't just put any old key in it it must be programmed to not turn on the security system and disable starting, which is what you have now, the system has locked you out.

I lost my key to my bike and I spoke with a locksmith and he told that I would have to take the ignition out in order for him to replace or make me a new key so I was trying to figure out how to do so


Before you attempt to take out the ignition, call a dealer and ask him if they can get you a key for your bike by using the VIN as reference. Harley and some metrics can do it this way.

I have an Isuzu Rodeo and the key is stuck in the ignition any idea how to get it out? Year 2000


replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.

Lost 1999 cbr key


were both keys the same if not it sounds like its had a replacement ignition barrel. it may have a key number stamped in the back of the barrel casing. if it has you can order a replacement key from any good locksmith/dealer, alternatively you can order a replacement barrel from m&p or any motorcycle parts stockists.
