Make sure the power cord is plugged in and that the red/white/yellow cables are plugged properly into the TV. Also, as you plug the red/white/yellow cables into the TV, make sure you turn the TV to the right channel - it is different for every TV. For instance, the red/white/yellow on the front of my Sony is labelled Video 2 - yours might be labelled FRONT, AUX, or something else.

Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.

My Irola tablet will turn on but it will not load anything it just shows the Irola word on the screen then goes blank?


Most likely the battery is shot. If you could, try to power it up with the adapter supplying power. If this is successful it indicates that the battery is done for and no longer holds a charge. Most of the batteries on small, inexpensive tables only last for a couple of years. Yours may have used up it's life waiting in a warehouse. I have generally been unable to find replacement batteries for these tablets. There is a company in China that makes most of them as custom runs for small companies and does not stock replacements. You may also try to do a "factory reset" while the "powering up" logo is showing, find and press the reset button while using the power adapter for juice. If you manage to get it to run on the power adapter, and find that the battery is shot, there is little chance of portable use anymore.

Dell latitude 610 AC adapter issue or battery pack issue or both?


It could possibly be the power jack that is inside the computer. This item is typically soldered onto the motherboard and it is what your ac adapter plugs into.

Battery light flashing red


If you are using AC, remove battery. Charge battery and remove when plugged in for a period of time. It will last longer, the battery has a finite number of charge cycles.

I have scramble challenge edition on my ipad and it will not connect to the net


I have been having the same problem with Scramble Challenge Edition on my iPhone. I tried my wife's phone (she also has the App) and get the same error screen. Some time ago they stopped listing the game at the App Store and I suspect they have now disabled the online feature. It's a shame, as it was a very fun addictive game. I searched and searched to no avail, but I can't find any mention of it. This surprises me also, as there always seemed to be a ton of people online playing.

Unable to boot emachine 350


It is possible the battery is an open circuit, so even with the power adapter plugged in there is not enough power to boot the machine. Laptop batteries last about 2-3 years.

Try to perform power drain. Take out the battery unplug the power adapter then press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in then plugin in the power adapter then turn on the computer. If same issue occur, then you need to replace your battery.

Computer unable to proceed to open Windows during startup due to abrupt power shut-off. The memory, CMOS battery and power supply unit has no problem when tested to a separate computer. There definitely...


Hello,

Depending on the nature of the "abrupt power shut-off" you mention above, your motherboard ma have suffered a power surge. Not necessarily enough to completely fry the board but perhaps just enough to scramble or destroy some of the chipset on the motherboard. The only way that gaming on your system could cause such a problem is if your system has an inadequately cooling system and you are hard core gaming for extended periods of time generating excessive heat from your graphics adapter.

Sounds like you might need a new motherboard.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on


Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.
