Broken power button

Power button is broken and want to know how I can turn it on for the next month while they order the new part. I'm in Thailand and don't return to the USA until March.

    Thanks for the help yet I haven't turned it off. I just keep closing the lid and letting it hibernate. I went to Fujitsu in Bangkok and it will take a month to get a replacement Power Button board since this model was not sold in Thailand. I'm a bit surprised it would take that long since it is made in Japan. If it powers off I will be using your suggestion and the wires to turn it on again. Thanks again...

The power button has 2 wires conected to it. All you have to do is to take these wires and simply join the two wiresfor a second or two, until the computer starts. after that you letthem go so they do not touch because it will turn your computer off, like when you keep the power button pressed continuasly

If you already replaced the motherboard then try replacing the power cord. If you meant you replaced the cord already, the it might be your motherboard is bad.

DELL INSPIRON M5030 frusturating issue (tried almost everything)


A) How did the Power Button Module get broken?

B) Error indicates losing data and unable to leave Hibernation Mode.

It's a long shot, but let's see if you can reset BIOS Settings back to default, without being able to see the BIOS Setup screen.....

Remove the AC adapter (Charger)
Remove the Battery.

Remove the RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock. Same as CMOS Battery, but with a new name)
Oh, excuse me.....Dell = Coin-Cell Battery

Power Button Module flat flex cable installed in motherboard connector, press the Power On button, hold it down for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Reinstall Coin-Cell Battery
Reassemble laptop.
Reinstall Battery, THEN AC adapter, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

Let's see if we can revert the BIOS Setup settings, back to the factory default settings.

C) Dell refuses to help you since your warranty expired.
Not sticking up for Dell, but Really?

You're telling me they're not going to take your laptop, and fix it for a specific amount of money?

"No thank you Mr.Robertson, we're a laptop manufacturer, and money is of no consequence!"
We get by just knowing people out there like our laptops.
That, food stamps and the occasional barbecue Gates puts on at his place, gets us by."

Right.

Did you know I'm Brad Pitt? Angelina is in one of her moods again, so I come on here.

(Just trying to be funny)

D) LED lights 2 & 3 stay on

LED 2 is the Harddrive Activity LED.
Should stay solid as the harddrive isn't active

LED 3 is the Battery Status LED.
Solid amber indicates ON, or Standby.

Did you follow Anti-Static Procedures, during the Power Button Module replacement?

Plus, I'm willing to bet the Power Button Module, didn't come from Dell. Another reason they would not want to work on the laptop.
They can't guarantee the replacement part is good.
(They can, but there are too many liability issues)

Power Button Module being broken, is what I'm concentrating on at the moment.

This was the start of the problem. From it all other problems have issued.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The carbon contact Power On switch on that Power Button Module.

http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=9908

Was it broken so it stayed pressed to the on position?

Also need to know the full extent of damage caused by the Power Button Module being broken.
In my estimate it took a pretty hard hit in that area, to break that board.

Lastly for now; The Power Button Module has a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
Is it replaced back in the SAME position? Not flipped over?
It will go in either way. Right side up, or flipped over.

Please post back in a Comment.
Regards,

Mitsubishi WD-73735 will not turn on and there are no lights on front. The power supply was replaced, and is brand new. I fix HDTVs, and have had very little problem resolving other issues with other TVs....


if you have no lights come on the front of TV, you definitely have a power supply issue. Don't know what previous servicer did, but I would be looking at ALL wires & connectors.

Hi, I have an ...COBRA power Plane & the Belt has broken, do you know where I can buy a NEW BELT. Thanks Nick.


Scroll to the bottom for contact info. Took me 10 minutes to dig out Cobra Wood Planes site and I'm still not sure it will be what you need.
http://www.cobratechservices.com/new-planer-information.html

If this doesn't get you the right place to order a new belt you will have to know the length, width and all other aspects of the belt in order to locate on online. There are many sites that can help but without that data I would have to list a bunch of different ones which might confuse the issue.

Lgateway laptop won't power on


Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.
