I just got an old E-100 from a friend of mine, and it has a slight problem: it won't turn on. I've done everything I can think of, including a reset, a full reset, and taking both batteries out and putting them back in. When I tried that last one, it actually did turn on, but went off again after about 5 seconds. Do you think it may have something to do with the battery? It didn't tell me the battery was dead when I turned it on. Also, the device does look pretty worn (there are scratches on the screen), so it may just be time to put it out to pasture.

Re: Slight E-100 problem
You may need to open the case to see for any bad contact since this unit has been used for such a long time. Another test to check whether the problem is from the battery by plug the unit with the charger without battery.If the unit is on, then definitely, the problem is from battery and yo just simply replace it. But if it is still not on, then I suggest you do the check as I mentioned in the frst sentence above. Good Luck.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
My singer hasn't wound bobbins for years and I don't care because I use a Side Winder bobbin winder. It's much easier than takining the thread off the machine anyway. Available from Hancock, Jo Ann or even Wal Mart for about $30.
Yep there's one solution. The problem what most of people do is they turn the device on while is still wet inside. When they do that (as you did), you will burn it as there will be short circuit. If you get your phone wet, NEVER switch it on until it's dry!!!!You should get 100% pure synthetic alcohol and (obviously without battery) put it in there so water will dilute with alcohol and it'll dry quicker without rusting any metal parts inside. You should leave your phone dry naturally up to 7 days on dry warm place(not hot). Phones usually switch off themselves when short circuit detected. So solution for you: put this one in the bin and get new one,you've burned your phone!!!
you may have a ground loop problem and when you touch the strings you complete the ground loop so the noise dissapears. make sure the amp is plugged into a proper grounded outlet. also there is an aftermarket ground plate that goes under the pick guard. that is what I put on mine to cut the emf way down. if you bought the guitar from a dealer take it back to the store and ask them why you are getting so much noise.
Although I have not changed mine out, I did help a friend do his and the first thing we did after completeing the job was to take it in for an alignment, because it didn't look the same to us. The shop we took it to aligned it and adjusted everything the way it should be. At first there was a slight height difference, but as he drove the car and the new springs wore in, the difference went away. I think it was the difference in strength of each coil, when then were new.
Whats happening is that your fan is overheating (usually due to a loss of lubrication in the bearings), and the motor's thermal cutoff is kicking in (due to overtemperature), and shutting down the motor. This thermal cutoff circuit is installed in consumer motors to prevent fires.
You have two solutions: (1) disassemble your nice 30" pedestal fan (I've done this a few times - any handy guy/gal can do it), and lubricate (with automotive bearing grease ($3 at any auto parts store), or 3-in-1 oil for those spots that won't take bearing grease) the bearings, and reassemble. Re-lubricate on a regular schedule to prevent recurrence. (2) buy a new one. Give your old fan to the kid on the block who thinks he/she can fix anything & tell him/her it just needs to be lubricated.
