Niether one of my Executive defenders nor my G2 will work and I have new batteries!!!

I have hade my Surefires for about 6 years and jusr recently had my exec defenders lamp replaced by a surefire dealer. I rested it near my bed where it has resided for sometime. I keep a g2 in my truck for emergencies. and both have fresh batteries in them I purchased 3 weeks ago. Yesterday I needed my g2 pretty badly and it turned on momentarily but then nothing and I thought maybe the bulb went out too. I went home and grabbed my defender and the same thing happened even though I had tested it at the shop. I then took my wifes from the truck and put fresh batteries in it and it turned on momentarily and then it crapped out too. Could the problem possibly be in the tail caps I had bought a second box of liths just in case and it seeme to be the same thing no power. That is a grand total of almost $300 down the tubes. These have been great partner lights for me and my wife but what gives????

Strange how all the units have failed. Sounds like more of a battery problem. Are you using brand name batteries like Surefire, Energizer etc? I had two boxes of Chinese import batteries and most of them failed. I put them into a number of items and had problems. I stopped using them and opted to pay the extra for 'real' batteries. A bad battery can do more harm that just going flat. If it releases too much power when turned on because it isn't properly regulated it can fry the bulb or electronics in those things so equiped. Having said that the big companies also have sets of 'lemmon' batches too.

If you have spare globes. First try some other batteries. If it doesn't work then use those batteries and the new globe.

I have owned the C-H 19 v. cordless drill for about two years. My strategy for charging the batteries is to have one charging while I keep the other one for intermittant use. That worked fine until...


chordless batteries do have a lifespan. if you constantly charged them over a two year period then yes, they are done. they are kind of like lightbulbs and will eventually wear out. i suggest you change to rigid brand tools from Home Depot. they are the only affordable tools that have lifetime warranty even on the batteries. that is unheard of cause they will eventually get worn out. you will spend more on replacemnet batteries over the course of 4 to 6 years than just buying a new Rigid drill. check em out at the Depot.

Hello my fujitsu e2010 jusr stop working it will


Hi. Try to remove the battery, unplug the ac adapter and press/hold the power button for 10 seconds then plug the ac adapter in. do not put thebattery back in yet. turn the computer on and see what will happen.

If nothing happens, your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Good Luck!

Sony Trinitron WEGA won't turn on


6 blink error is either a power supply (g2 board) or a blown thermal fuse. if it came back on, its not the thermal fuse so you would need a new g2 board. if it blinks 5 times, you need a new ballast (lamp driver)

How to disable Windows Defender


On your own head be it, Open w/defender then goto TOOLS - OPTIONS & uncheck all the boxes.
Then goto w/Firewall and ensure defender is not in use there. By disabling defender you are also interfearing with microsoft updates for other programes other than just defender. Remember vista is still a baby and is constantly being updated,new service packs are being created day by day to improve the "ultimate operating system" lol yeah right. I disabled mine last year and had nothing but trouble.firewall wouldnt let things in/out ,internet kept crashing.I eventually had to uninstall the nightmare that is NORTON anti virus. and find a program that would work well along side defender and the one i recomend is AVG. its free,easy and defender loves it.Defender is a major part to the whole windows operating system.I dont think you can fully disable it as you will find out eventually.

G2 PowerShot Power Problem


When you're charging the camera, make sure the power switch is set to OFF. We've run into the same thing- we could plug it in for days, but it won't charge at all if the power switch is on.

Hope that helps.
