FE-160 won't switch off

Whilst unplugging my Olympus FE-160 from the computer I think I accidentally touched the 'Power' button. The green light is now permanently on, & I can't change to any other setting!

Try removing the battery, let it stand for 1 hour (it should reset itself), insert the battery and configure your camera again.
AND/OR
Have a look at your manual and or the Olympic WEB site to see how to reset your camera.

Hp desktop blinking green light won't come on


mine does that when it's in stand-by mode. I just push the power button and it comes on....

Assuming you've already tried that....push and hold the power-button down for 5 seconds and the power SHOULD go out. *IF* it does not, then disconnect the power cord in the back for 1min....then reconnect and try to boot. If it *DOES*, then do the same...unplug the power cord for 1min and reconnect and boot.

My HP pavilion a620n won't power back on when I push button on the front, there is a little green light on the back that went off when I unplugged everthing attached to the back. Could this be a b


it could be a faulty switch or the bad lead connections

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE SATA

MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a flat ribbon 40pin ide

this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have a finishing point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste

make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps

Start button jammed


if it got jammed you can either apply pressure on the button whilst trying to move it so that it unlocks from the position it is. that is the only way without dismantling the whole thing.

Won't turn on


First check the power cable and ensure that it is correctly connected. check the fuse of the plug or socket just in case it is blown.
pay extra attention and never touch contacts whilst power is switched on.

I have an olympus fe camera and the language was accidentally changed to japanese or chinese but anyways I don't know how to switch it back to english.


Press the MENU button. Use the cursor buttons to select Setup (crossed wrench and hammer). Press the OK/FUNC button. Use the cursor buttons to select the third line (speech bubble) and press OK/FUNC. Use the cursor buttons to select "ENGLISH" and press OK/FUNC. Press MENU to exit.

Replace on/off switch dimension 8200?


The On/Off switch is the Power On switch.

The switch itself is tiny, and is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.
There are plastic tangs on the Power On button, which hold the switch in place.

I use a hair dryer set on low heat, to gently heat the tangs so they will spread easily, to remove the switch. (Move the hair dryer slowly back, and forth)

You can also set the Power On assembly in a bowl of Very warm water, to temporarily soften the tangs.
(The switch is no good anyway. Dry the plastic Power on assembly before installing the new switch)

This switch is usually a replacement,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

To remove the Power On button assembly the computer case is opened.

BEFORE you start, the computer Must be unplugged from power, and you should observe anti-static precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the components inside a computer.

You can either,
1) Buy a $6 ESD wrist strap, connect the wrist band to your wrist, and connect the alligator clip to the metal frame of the open computer case,
OR,
2) You simply touch the metal frame of the open computer case to relieve your body of static.

(Again, computer unplugged from power.
Also, IF you get up, and walk away, when you return TOUCH the metal frame again)

This is Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dell Dimension 8200 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/

To open the computer case:
Click on Opening the Computer Cover

The computer cover opens like a clamshell.
Observe where the cables (Wires) go to the motherboard, from the Front of the computer case.

You may wish to make a drawing, and notes.
Dell DOES NOT state where the wires go.
If any wires are accidentally bumped loose, you will have a schematic made by you, of where they go.

As you proceed, state any problems you are having, and let's see if I can rectify them with information. Simply state in a Comment.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Power issues.
