IBM wont wake up


Unplug, remove battery, Plug in, reboot, Open the Control Panel, select Power Options, Select High Performance, you didn't supply the Model of IBM or the OS, so I'll give you a Win 7 solution, open Change Plan Settings, under Plugged in, select Never and Never, select Advanced Power Settings, Adjust Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust ALL settings to your preference. Always shut down and unplug your machine when not in use, it will last longer and prevent damage due to a power surge, and IF your Battery malfunctions COULD prevent a fire hazzard.

Gaggenau fryer won't heat


check to see if there is some kind of breaker on the unit, it should be like a reset button. some kind of safety switch has tripped, you need to find out what and where it is.

No start ,dead


Hi alonzot,

Here are some basic steps that will help you fixing the problem.

I'm assuming that your unit is dead set without an standby LED light and your outlet is live.1.Power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact. 3.Check the internal fuse- sometimes the fuse fail because of the power surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case I would advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator). However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts in the power supply, you may visit the linkhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info. If no reaction and still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.

4.If you see that the fuse is intact , don't attempt to touch anything because there some fatalcomponents stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only. I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the power supply. If you want to repair it yourself make sure that you have necessary tools and test instrument. First check bad solder joints(re-solder all cold solder), leaky electrolytic capacitor(sometimes it has bulged at the top but not all, you better have a capacitor checker), open/shorted regulator transistor/IC(mounted in heat sink), open fusible resistor (caused by shorted regulator Transistor/IC), shorted zener diode.

You may also replace the power supply board, try online like ebay.com and shojimmy.com.

Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

My dell gx270 power supply has been burnt how can i repair it


If the power supply has been burnt, individual electronic components likely failed due to a power surge or other issue, and you may have experienced a short within the unit. Unfortunately, due to advanced difficulty and low cost, power supplies generally are not repaired, they are replaced instead.

We are using this server for more than 3 years. yesterday, server switched off due to voltage surge. afterthat it is not turning on. even smps not switching on..


Sounds very likely that if the power supply isn't even showing signs of life then the surge has killed it, it'll need to be replaced. If your lucky then no other components have been damaged.

The supply in that unit (according to google) is an IBM 340W Power Supply - 24P6898. My searches have found a few refurbished units for about £40.

HP Pavilion will not power up


Yes pwer in entering since the LED lights up but most probably your SMPS orpower supply has fried due to a voltage surge. Try replacing the Power supply unit and see if there is any difference(use a working SMPS for trial and if this works, you have the solution...........sodeep
