Good day!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Connected 20V laptop power supply to 1touch4 by accident. Now with its own 12v pwr supply connected, it just flashes and HD does not spin up. Pulled it apart and nothing obviously fried. Any suggestions?


The electronics has been damaged and the cost of repair may be high even if you can find an electronic repairer.
I suggest you put your money towards a new USB hard drive as 1Tb hard drives are less than $100.

My wife has a toshiba satellite L35-S2151 laptop. When she went to turn it on, the orange battery light flashes 8 times and nothing else happens. Any clue as to what is going on?


Try turning on the device with the power connected if it turns on, keep the power plugged in for the entire day. See if you will have the same problem without the power supply. If it still occurs without the power supply, you may have a bad battery, you can verify if you can get swap battery from a similar laptop.

Gateway 200arc motherboard problem


If there are two wires running from the power button on your case to the motherboard, take them off and try jumpering those two terminals with a jumper or something that will make contact for just a second and them take back off. Your power button may have fried along with the power supply.

Dell 5100 won't come up after memory swap


Did you make sure that the power supply was off and or discontected from power source before opening the case?

It is possible that you have fried something by having a static discharge either from you hands or the vacume cleaner hose. Have you checked the correct installation of the memory make sure you are putting the original memory in dimm1 and dimm2.

Also check that the power button is still connected to the mother board just follow the wire from the back of the button just to be sure. Also check that the power switch on th power supply is on.
