Re: inoperative NextStar

Has the scope been unused for a while? Perhaps the old batteries have leaked or moisture has caused the battery contacts to be tarnished. Try cleaning the battery contacts with a little alcohol and rub with a rough cloth & try again. Can this model use an external power supply? I know with my Meade scope it worked much better with a larger capacity external battery. Also check the cable for any signs of damage or stretching.

My camera not comming on

There are (2) common (non-terminal) issues that cause this problem.
1) the contacts inside the camera have become oxidized...., using the eraser on the end of a pencil..., rub (clean) the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment.
2) Modern Li-Ion batteries often last only (3) years...,(if you have good ones)...., so what happens is that as the batteries reach the end of their life span they quite often will work one day and not the next (but show that they are fully charged). Thus if you only have the (1) battery, you will not know if it is the battery, the charger or the camera. Go to your local camera store (with your camera & battery) and see if they are willing to put a new battery in your camera..., if it powers up it's your battery or charger. ask if they will then try to charge your old battery on their charger for 1/2 an hour..., this is enough of a charge to find out if your camera will turn on using the old battery.
Now you must ask yourself, if I need to purchase a new battery of charger..., is it worth it.

How to reset the locking system on a renault scenic megane 2005 after changing the batteries in the fob

You should not need to reset the locking system after changing a battery on the key fob. Did the fob ever work before the battery was changed?
Try this:
Press and hold the remote control button down for more than 10 seconds, the red light on the key will go out. Now press it again 3
times. Check that the doors lock and unlock correctly.

MH-25 is not charging the battery

Check the cords and make sure to disconnect and then reconnect the cords. Try the charger if nothing then try replacing the battery. If the battery is bad the charger will not work. If the battery is replaced and will not charge then replace the charger.

Just press hard on the bubble with your finger to turn the bubble light on. You may have to do it a couple of times. It goes off by itself after a short time.

Kodak m1033 cameraturns on shows date and time have been reset camera buttons and controls do not function

Ii understand your problem description as the camera turns off immidietly after having shown the date and time.

Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera.
2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera
3. Without the memory card,turn on your camera.
4. Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.
