    Generally speaking on laptops you don't "take off the bottom. Typically everything is accessed from the top.

    Can you post pictures of the laptop?

No lights. dead. checked plug


Unplug the brewer. Turn it upside down. You may need to use a small screwdriver to remove small rubber pads that cover screws that hold the bottom cover to the brewer body. Remove those screws. Using a volt-ohm meter, check to see if you have power coming from the power cord to the brewer at the points on the circuit board. IF NOT, REPLACE THE POWER CORD ( cheap fix). If the power cord is working, when you take off the bottom cover and you will find a small circuit board that has very small switches that actuate the brewer. Take that circuit board off, and with a toothbrush and water/soap solution, gently clean the circuit board and then let it dry completely. CHECK the board to see if their are any burnt areas, or any deposits that are corroding connections, and check to see if all connections are unbroken. Fix anything with a small soldering iron that has separated. Let the circuit board dry in the sunlight, and then replace it and the wires connected to it. Try then to plug the cord in and turn the brewer on to see if the lights work then. IF NOT, you will have to replace the circuit board.

Alignment off


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, please try this approach:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page and aligning your print cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hoptpoint Ultima Digit Washing machine is flashing the error message F-01 how do I fix this?


The first thing to attempt for the F01 error is...
Reset it : hold the 'start' button until all lights displayed, then press 'start' again.
Hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off.
It doesnt always work 1st time so keep trying.

F 01 is actually a shorted motor triac. You'll need a new pcb. (Primary Control Board)
Your machine may not have been the cheapest but all Hotpoint electronics hold much the same quality...questionable at best.
A few more things to do before trashing it....
- unplug the washer power supply, close the water valves.
- unscrew two screws that hold the control panel.
- remove the panel - you need the lid to be semi-opened.
- Disconnect and re-connect all connectors to fix any possible oxidation or loosensess - then try the washer

- On the right panel - unscrew the right screw (when standing in front of the washer)
- unscrew all four screws hidden under the bottom cover in the front of the washer that hides also the filter (those still hold the side cover)
- unscrew two more screws at the top back of the washer - they hold the circuit board to the washer body - it needs to be loose
- by pulling the top side of the washer up by the lid and pushing the side cover away "to the back" (with a screwdriver), see how the side cover is held by the top, remove the side cover
- observed the motor and immediately saw heavy corrosion at the ground connection (yellow-green wire) at the motor board and possible slight oxidation at one other connetion of the black wire
- using sand paper and screwdriver clean the contact together with the connector and try the washer

- clean the black wire connection with the same way
- try the washer (spinning program) and hope it works!!

- Empty the drain pipe out - if there is an obstruction... it may cause the motor to overheat and throw you this code.

- try unplugging the black wire and running the spinning program - both the motor AND the pump shouldnt start.
The problem may be in an oxidation of the black wire connection - that is apparently a power supply for both the pump and the motor.
That will cause insufficient voltage and thus a power for the motor but probably still enough for the pump.
The randomness of the problem is probably caused by humidity in the room and maybe some more factors.
The washer is actually opened from the bottom so when you test the washer more times and find a solution, it may be best to cover the connetors with silicon to avoid corrosion or oxidation in the future.
Here are also some tips for putting all together:
When removing the side cover something fell from it inside.
It was a plastic lath that is placed on the nearer edge of the cover and fits both onto the edge of the cover and the adjacent edge of the washer.
It's a bit tricky to put it all back plus there is a plastic piece at the bottom of the side cover that is fixed there also very loosely and keeps falling inside when srewing the filter side screws - but this can be fixed with pliers adjusting the edge of the side cover to make the plastic to fit there tightly.

I'm optimistic one of these solutions will do the trick - try unplugging/re-plugging first.

I have a Hotpoint aquarius WMF540 washing machine which is only 2-3 months old. It has stopped 10 minutes into the cycle with 'F-01' appearing and all the lights flashing. Help!


f01 RELATES TO A MOTOR PROBLEM , POSSIBLE CONTROL MODULE COULD CAUSE F01 TOO.

TRY THIS FIRST, " reset it : hold the 'start' button until all lights display, then press 'start' again. hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off. it doesn't always work 1st time so keep trying, good luck" If not then try the proceedure below.



unplugged the washer power supply, closed the water
- unscrewed two screws that hold the control panel
- removed the panel - you need the lid to be semi-opened
- (re-conected all connectors to fix any possible oxidation or unpluging - then tried the washer, but problem persisted)
- unscrewed all screws that hold the side cover - only the right one had actually been necessary (when standing in front of the washer)
- unscrewed all four screws hidden under the bottom cover in the front of the washer that hides also the filter (those still hold the side cover)
- unscrewed two more screws at the top back of the washer - they hold the circuit board to the washer body - it needs to be loose
- by pulling the top side of the washer up by the lid and pushing the side cover away "to the back" (with a screwdriver), see how the side cover is held by the top, remove the side cover
- observed the motor and immediately saw heavy corrosion at the ground connection (yellow-green wire) at the motor board and possible slight oxidation at one other connetion of the black wire
- using sand paper and screwdriver I've cleaned the contact together with the connector and tried the washer - still no effect
- cleaned the black wire connection with the same way
- tried the washer (spinning program) and - voila! It works!
- tried unplugging the black wire and running the spinning program - both the motor AND the pump didn't start

So, it looks to me that the problem was in an oxidation of the black wire connection - that is apparently a power supply for both the pump and the motor, that caused insufficient voltage and thus a power for the motor but probably still enough for the pump. The randomness of the problem was probably caused by humidity in the room and maybe some more factors - the washer is actually opened from the bottom so when I test the washer more times and see this as a solution, I'll probably cover the connetors with silicon to avoid corrosion or oxidation in the future.

Power switch


Please look through my pictures here, some time you crack it open at the bottom edge first, or from the top bezel, look for slot if it has them. Just be realcareful, do not separate the bezel too far from the chassis since the cable is really short and delicate.

F 01 fault. What does it mean

- removed the panel - you need the lid to be semi-opened
- (re-conected all connectors to fix any possible oxidation or unpluging - then tried the washer, but problem persisted)

So if you are a bit handsome, try this before calling the service. It might help. And also you'll know your washer a bit more.

The electricl connection (printer end)


You probly can't take the bottom off an HP printer. All the HP printers use the base of the printer to assemble the printer on. You can take the covers off, but I have never removed the covers on you type of print, so you will just have to start trying to pop the off. Most HP prints have a few screws, and the rest just pop off.

Does this printer take 120 volts in or does it have a power converter between the wall and the printer? If it is 120, does the power cable unplug from printer or is it made to the printer?

I have seen power cable connectors go bad and become loose and your power will come and go.
