Travelmate 290 works with AC, but fails to charge the battery

Possible broken laptop batteries. Acer Trafelmate 290 (year 2003 production), has a battery that can last 3 years (source: CNET Reviews). So it's possible your battery damaged, due to age factor.

The solution:
Alternative 1 (battery removed)
Turn on the laptop without the battery

Alternative 2 (insert the battery)
Because the battery is damaged and causes an error if installed, you must remove the gold coating on the battery. The battery, there is a thin plate-shaped connector, gold-colored. Remove the layer of gold, to disable the battery. So the battery is installed without the connector.

Alternative 3 (buy a new battery)
Price of new battery, $28.89. You can check at

I have a Compaq (CQ61Z) laptop stuck in sleep mode. We have tried shutting it down (manual override by holding the power button) unplugging it and waiting etc. Nothing seems to work. Any hints?


Anytime you use the sleep mode, your battery is working to save your information. Your battery may be drained, depending on how long your computer has been asleep?

Try taking your battery out and use your power adapter only and just press the power key...don't hold it down, just press it like your turning it on.

This should fix your problem! When you get back your power, you need to go into your power setting and set your setting to 'Never', this way, you don't have this problem again.

If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to reply back to me.

Kind regards!

Is your battery frozen? If the charge level went very low on a cold night it could freeze the battery and will not likely take a charge till it thaws out. If the battery froze I would recommend replacement.

My 2000 mustang battery died and now everytime i try to charge the battery the alarm goes off and nothing works to shut it do i shut it off?

You factory security alarm needs to be reset.

Insert the key in the drivers door, turn left, then right to disarm and reset it.

Once this is done, charge the battery.

If this does not work, do the reset again, then disconnect the battery and charge it out of the vehicle. Once it is charged reconnect it. You may need to perform the key reset again afterwards.

If this does not work then the system has malfunctioned and either I can explain how to bypass it if you have some level of electric ability or you will have to bring it to a dealer.

best of luck.

Our Samsung J1455AV door won't open, just over a year old. Have cleaned the filter, re-run a cycle, turned off at wall. Help!


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with if the door lock is stuck and wont unlock then you can pry it to open, and just don’t try too hard. The issue can be with the door latch that is stuck, to unlock it you can stick a flat screw driver behind the door latch and then lever it to open so that you don’t have to pry it to open. Once it’s done, please make sure to replace the door latch assembly to avoid any further issues. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

No power

I also had this problem - and by accident I found that the battery just wasn't pressed down enough onto the contacts when the door was shut.  I now use a little bit of cardboard on top of the battery - then I close the door - now it works fine

Cassette Jam

The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
