Hello,
a noise may accure in power supply due to a short circuit or fan does not run properly. if you smell like burnt then you should remove the power supply from pc and open it. then check the capaciter and other element and if you find any broken capaciter then change it with it original value.

Where can i find the proprietary power adapter for My ge a730 digital camer?


Proprietary? The GE A730 uses standard AA batteries. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries then you can charge them using any standard AA charger. Such chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Lg troom dle 3777w dryer does not turn on!!!


Sounds like you have 110 volts going to the dryer, you need 220 volts for a dryer to operate normally, check for propper voltage at the back of the dryer where the power cord connects to the terminal block, then if all is good there check at the receptacle on the wall that the dryer is plugged into for correct voltage there, look for bad wire connections, or burnt wire connections or obvious signs that don't appear normal, also don't forget to double check your circuit breaker at your homes electric supply panel. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

GE Spacemaker XL1800 does not heat. All other functions appear to be working normally, the light comes on and the turntable functions. When turned on, it makes a humming noise slightly louder than normal,...


Possible bad heating element, You should remove the cover of the unit and look at the heating element with the power off. Until you get your problem resolved I would recommend not to even turn it on due to the fact that you are unsure what is going on and you smelt some burnt smell. Just for safety until you fine the problem

Compaq Armada E500 shut off and won't restart.


The notebook does have an overvoltage and overcurrent protection inside the computer itself. The problem is definitely in your low voltage power supply section of your notebook. Since you do have a multimeter and know how to use it. Take your notebook apart so that you can see the board that your power adapter actually plugs into. Your notebook may just have a normal fuse that you can see is blown since they do make that little popping sound and do not leave any discernible smell of an electronic component that burned or blew up so to speak. That you cannot smell anything like that is good. If you do not see a regular fuse, there are what are called bell fuses that look like miniature glass diodes or resistors but are actually inline fuses. Your entire notebook should not have more than two or three. Sometimes they are made of ceramic, but that is only used for high amperage uses like on plasma screens and such. If the fuse is visible and checks blown try another one and watch it as you power the computer up. If it blows again check your on/off switch without power to your computer to be sure it is not shorted out. Then trace your voltages into your computer with power on and see where you do not get any voltage down the line. It is pretty straightforward in tracing the voltage from your adapter into the computer. Remember though that the intial voltage from the adapter is broken down into smaller voltages for the logic circuits. It is apparent you are not getting any voltage past right inside your computer's power supply and voltage regulator section. You in my opinion have an open circuit instead of a short right now. If you find fuse and it blows again then you have to find the shorted component. Let me know and I will be glad to help further. Good luck.

No power to Compaq Presario


There were several recalls on Compaq's ac adapters and batteries that caused fire to units...

Check this out

I would also check with compaq about your problem. They were replacing and repairing the units free of charge due to the defects. I would check with them

 

Hope this helps you

Laptop Boot Problem


It seems all Compaq laptops are infected by this problem. If you are sure that the AC port and the AC adapter is working? Can you hear the laptop trying to boot? ..e.g. Hard Drive spinning up, Floppy Disk Drive noise, etc.. if so ...Try hooking up a external monitor.. Does it smell like anything has burnt? (Call for service) Is there anything that sounds loose when you shake it? (Call for service or you can to open it?) Try booting your laptop from a bootable floppy if you have one. Or use Compaq's Recovery CD. But I doubt if you use recovery CD, you might lose data on your HDD. Which O.S. are you using? The Boot-up mechanism checks all the hardware before starting Windows. Some times floppy drive doesn't allow the laptop to boot further by either not responding or sending wrong signal.
