Hi,

Initially, I would suspect the battery (even when plug to the AC). To confirm, pls try running without the battery and purely on AC adapter. Alternately, it could be a loose component internally such as the memory, LAN or WiFi card and in some models, video card. In my Toshiba, it turned out that the WiFi was consuming too much power that it discharges the battery rapidly and the charger was having a hard time coping up. My solution was to turnoff the built-in WiFi and install a D-Link USB.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Mtd yardmachine snow blower 305 cc auger wont turn


This is a fairly frequent problem that is easily fixed. What happened was the snowblower's auger was either overloaded or got jammed (ice, debris - something other than snow). Rather than twist, damage or break the auger itself, an inexpensive part called a "shear pin" is designed to fail. A shear pin employed between the auger sleeve and drive shaft that is inside the sleeve. You may have broken one if one side of the auger spins) or both (if both sides of the auger spins). Purchase several replacements for your particular machine to have on hand. Do NOT replace s shear pin (or shear bolt) with a regular bolt under any circumstances! Check the video linked below on how to replace the shear pins. Good luck!

I need a replacement toggle switch for a chipper/shredder.The 1/12 hp motor experiences frequent slow downs, depending on what is being chopped. Sometimes it even stops momentarily, I presume causing...


My friend did a pretty good search for similar toggle

1) He found a 'wall-type' 30Amp DPDT at Global
2) He said he couldn't find others ... but the internet changes.
3) This switch could be mounted in a box that screws to side of chipper. Switch will work fine with 125V.
4) Radio shack and the automotive stores carry 5 amp versions of the DPDT, but they burn up like you said

5) Here is wiring schematic for switch schematic
6) Note: Wiring is different than automotive-type DPDT toggles where power connects to center pole and loads connect to outside poles
-Power on global DPDT connects to poles L1 and L2
-L1 switches to A1 & B1 ... while L2 switches to A2 & B2.
-Poles L1=>A1 and L2=>A2 turn on-and-off at same time

7) In a reverse of the schematic shown above, my friend is using the global switch on 30Amp water heater to switch voltages between 120 and 240 so we know switch can handle the amperage. schematic

1995 F150, 5.0 ltr. Always starts when cold. Drive


If it has the ignition module attached to distributor with 2 small hex head screws, and plug in harness to it. ( 4'-5" long x 1-1/2"- 2" wide approx.) I would change it. That was a common symptom of those.

Frequent paper jams.


Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new ream of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.
  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
  • If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..
