SOURCE: lens won't come out

Replace with new batteries. If that doesnt solve the problem then it may be time for new camera. Cheaper to replace than try to fix.

Panasonic TV slow to turn on, works fine after it turns on.


If you have to try to turn it on several times it is power supply related.

If dirty inside on fans etc it would cause set to shut down(the set monitors the fans for speed)>

I would suggest (take it outside) using a air compressor and cleaning the entire set out.

Lamps do fail---average life is 2000 hours for a original lamp and much less for a generic one.

If picture comes up try to watch the light from the lamp---if dim at first and then slowly comes up---it could be the lamp or the ballast the set uses to power the lamp.

New grill, grill is burning slow like not enough gas going through


Sometimes if you open the valve on the tank a little to fast, Or the burners are on when you open the tank, there can be a surge of gas that can activate a flow restrictor. try turning off the the tank with the grill valves on. listen for a little click or ping. Then shut the grill off and open the tank valve slowly

Toilet tank is refilling slowly.


Hi AaronYC,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbe.

Your problem is: Installed a new American Standard Cadet 3 toilet bowl and tank at home. When you turn the water supply on, the tank refills normally and stops normally. After you flush, the refill is very slow. When it refills normally the water comes out from the bottom of the pipe (i.e. the pipe that houses the float cup) and when it is refilling slowly, it comes from the top of the pipe. Sometimes (but not always), you can shut the water supply off and when you turn it back on, the flow of water goes from slow to fast instantly - but you haven't been able to recreate this consistently.

These are the facts. American Standard has been keeping costs down by out sourceing. Their toilets are now built in third world countries and parts are made cheap. They're all doing it. Quality control is pretty good but your toilet came with a bad "ballcock". That's the refill part on the left. Because it's new, if you take the ball **** back to place of purchase they should give you new. If not, they cost less than $ 10.00 and easy to replace.

Feel free contact me again!

Cpu


Your computer shuts down slowly because there are a lot of services that run in the background that have to close before the computer shuts down.

Another reason that it will be slow is because of some programs that stay in residence have to close too.

Running defrag and scandisk will sometimes speed up startup and shutdown.

It dont turn on


I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!
