P1 backup issue

Have a p1 for a year now,works more or less fine, except for the back up process. when connected to the computer the first few back-ups worked ok, since a few months now the phone stops the process, leaving the thing uncompleted.
had the same issue with my m600i earlier, in fact that was the reason to get the p1, seems time to get rid of it, or any solution?

I am having an issue with my Latitude E6520 keyboard. It has happened a few times since I got the laptop (about two years ago) but has become worse lately. The keyboard will be working fine for several...

The honest truth is its probably just going bad. If you've had that computer for years now the connections may just be wearing out. Especially If it has been under heavy use. There a couple things to check. Such as updated keyboard drivers and other software updates. But its most likely at this point a hardware issue. I would look into upgrading to new computer.

Nothing works on control panel except control locked sensor light. The buttons were working fine then I went to add more drying time and the buttons do not light up or work.

From the details of your symptom you're indicating a possible intermittent loose connection between the user interface (touch panel) and the machine control board or the voltage supply to machine control board at P1 connector.

Disconnect the power cord from the power source.

  • Disconnect P3 and P4 connectors from the machine control board and then reconnect them.
  • Disconnect P1 connector and then reinstall the P1 connector and then recheck operation.

If the wires are good then you will need to replace the control board on your unit.

Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless router unable to connect to Internet

Try again by Disabling the WEP (or WPA), MAC Address Filtering and Firewall Setting Individually. Should be a problem with one of those. Then when you receive the Signals, try to Adjust using Bottom Up method. That means one setting at a time, Hardening the Security. Have you checked your DNS settings? Have you checked the Channels you are using? Re check them and try again.

My Western digital My Book WD5000F032 has been working fine for years. I shut it down and disconnected it one day and now it wont connect to the computer again...I have tried two other computers with now...

The sweeping noise usually means the drive cannot read the first few cylinders and can't finish starting up.

This can be due to drop damage causing an impact on the pallets, a failing head on the drive, a failed pre-amp on the arm or even a few circuits on the PCB board that are involved in the process.

Generally this type of failure would require the help of a pro to recover files off.

If this is just a backup drive and you have all you original files intact simply replace it and back your files up onto the new one.

If this had important files on it that aren't backed up elsewhere and you need a pro, reply back with your location(Country, State, City) and I will connect you with a nearby pro who can assist you in a lab environment.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Battery does not get charged fully... and does not support load of computer in backup mode...


If the battery backup unit is over 2.5 years old then you will need to replace the battery. Go to your local electronics parts house or battery distributor. They will have the gel cell battery you need in stock. These units are just like small car batteries, after a few years of use they will break down and not hold a full charge. When this starts to happen the battery life is about to be over, it will hold less and less charge until one day no power at all and then the UPS will not power on. The UPS have a monitor circuit that will prevent them from powering up with a dead or missing battery. The replacement battery should run less than $20.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

No display on SyncMaster 920NW after reboot from power failure


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. Look in our monitor repair section for step by step repair guide for this model it should be the same power supply as the 930. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
