Hi juniorrs300,

The problem might be with the dc adapter jack. This jack is only four point soldered on the motherboard and has been known to work it self free from electrical connection. This is due primarily to everyday use. You can get the dc jacks on-line everywhere, about $6 or $7. If your the mechanical type you can try and install is yourself or take it to a computer fix-it store. I wouldn't recommend GeeK Squad they just end up sending it out and charging you a fortune($85.00) for a 5 to 10 dollar job. I hope this helps you.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

SOURCE: ibm thinkpad r40 won't power up.

Batteries can develop a dead short and cause a no start. Try starting without the battery. Other things you can try is checking the power supply with an ohm meter,or plug it in and stick it in your mouth, but me personally, I'd use the ohm meter. Also check the memory, a faulty memory chip can cause this. If none of these work, them I'm afraid the problem may be with the power management chip on the motherboard. If the pm chip is malfunctioning, then motherboard replacement is your only option.

Samsung monitor 2232bw plus backlight fade in black backgrounds scenes


Most common failures in these LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply C242 470uF 10V, C241 & C242 1000uF 16V, C261 & C319 680uF 35V failed as indicated in the attached picture, replace them at once.

If the power supply board is working then it is back light problem, first do a flash light test. If you can see the image in the flash light test, follow the steps how to test back light voltages: https://how-to-repair.org/repair/lg-tv-repair-manual-pdf/lg-led-tv-no-backlights-32ln5300-32ln5310-32ln5700-voltage-test-troub/2pyuXwNkBMA.html and follow the steps how to repair back light LEDs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_poWTEihIJU Fix Led Backlights for TV or Monitor Lg Led Tv No Backlights 32ln5300 32ln5310 32ln5700 Voltage Test Troub Lg...

My computer not powering up and the power supply is good because I tested it another computer. Can you please help me.


  1. Verify that the power supply voltage switch is set correctly. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on at all.
  2. Check for disconnected computer power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.
  3. Replace the computer's power cable. This is the power cable that runs between the computer case and the power source.
    A bad power cable isn't a common cause of a computer not receiving power but it does happen and is very easy to test for. You can use the one that's powering your monitor (as long as it seems to be getting power), one from another computer, or a new one.
  4. Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided from the wall. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly ,.

Won't turn on


If a portable, could be no charge or bad battery---output voltage is marked on the charger and can be tested with a meter---if voltage and battery are good (most units will work with the charger hooked even if battery is bad) then the unit has either a damaged jack where charger connects or has a power supply problem inside it.

No power - lights no fan


  1. Verify that the power supply voltage switch is set correctly. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on at all.

  2. Check for disconnected computer power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.

  3. Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided from the wall. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.



  4. Test your power supply. At this point in your troubleshooting, it's very likely that thepower supply unit in your computer is no longer working and should be replaced. You should however test it just to be sure. There's no reason to replace a working piece of hardware when testing it is fairly easy.

    Replace your power supply if it fails your testing.

No power


Try these simple steps that I have below:

  1. Believe it or not, the number one reason why a computer won't turn on is because it wasn't turned on!
  2. Before starting a sometimes time consuming troubleshooting process, make sure you've turned on every power switch and power button on your computer:
  3. Verify that the power supply voltage switch is set correctly. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on at all.

I have medion akoya s5610 laptop. Power light bottom left comes on when conected but nothing else happens, just black screen, no attempt to boot.No light on power button either


  1. Believe it or not, the number one reason why a computer won't turn on is because it wasn't turned on!
    Before starting a sometimes time consuming troubleshooting process, make sure you've turned on every power switch and power button on your computer:
    • Power button/switch on the front of the computer
    • Power switch on the back of the computer
    • Power switch on the power strip, surge protector, or UPS (if you have one)
  2. Verify that the power supply voltage switch is set correctly. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on at all.
  3. Check for disconnected computer power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.
  4. Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided from the wall. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.
    Note: If you have a multimeter or another electrical testing device you are welcome to use that to test your wall outlet (and power strip, surge protector, etc.). The lamp test is useful if you don't have an electrical testing device.
  5. Test your power supply. At this point in your troubleshooting, it's very likely that the power supply unit in your computer is no longer working and should be replaced. You should however test it just to be sure. There's no reason to replace a working piece of hardware when testing it is fairly easy.
    Replace your power supply if it fails your testing.
    Important: In the huge majority of cases when a computer isn't receiving power, a nonworking power supply is to blame. I bring this up again to help stress that this troubleshooting step should not be skipped. The next few causes to consider aren't very common.
  6. Test the power button on the front of your computer's case. It's not a very common point of failure but your computer might not be receiving power because the power button on the front of your PC is damaged and is not actually turning your computer on.
    Replace the power button if it fails your testing.
  7. Replace your motherboard. If you're confident that your wall power, power supply, and power button are working, it's likely that there is a problem with your PC's motherboard and it should be replaced.

My UPS stopped to work. I pushed the reset button and I had no response. When it is plugged all the panel lights start to flash


Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. There maybe one battery in a set of batteries that is faulty and causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault.

These lower powered and cheaper KVA type UPS are switch over types, when the mains supply fail, the UPS switches over to the inverter in milli-seconds which then supplies mains power but the power waveform is a pseudo sine wave (ie not a true sinewave. A faulty inverter circuit won’t deliver power when the mains supply fails.
