There is a small green board underneath the buttons that has silver contacts underneath them that allows the buttons to activate. These silver contacts wear out over time which is why your having to press the power button more then once to get it to respond. That small green board with the silver contacts on them would have to be replaced.

Waste ink full reset


These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?


friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

I have a brand new Go PRo Hero Naked 1080P HD camera. In my initial attempts to familiarize myself with the camera, I noticed 2 things: 1. when I turn on the camera, the default start mode (which is...


You can choose your default power up mode in the settings menu. If it's already setup as F (film), then you're holding the power button too long when turning on the camera (if you hold the power button, it will turn on in the next mode after the default power up mode). Try just quickly pressing the power button - this will remedy that one if your default power up mode is already set to F (otherwise, go into settings menu and change it to F).
A couple of my friends' computers don't have the RAM/video card, or whatever is needed to playback HD footage smoothly. There's a ton of data transferring to playback the HD video/audio, and many computers (especially if they're not new, but even many new ones) aren't up to the task. Try playing it from the camera to your TV. Does it play smoothly? If so, it's the computer. This doesn't effect videos you upload to YouTube, etc, it is just frustrating and annoying that it doesn't play smooth and makes editing slower as well. Check out the support page on gopro's website - they have FAQ's, Troubleshooting, etc... tons of helpful info there. Also, most of us who have used gopro gear for a while now are usually happy to help when we see a question we know something about.

There could be 2 reason for this error. You can either reset the error or try and clean the printer from inside which might be causing the problem. Below are the 2 steps:

STEP 1: Clean the printer from inside
  1. Opened the cover and checked the front right of the printer near the waste ink pads
  2. Carefully turn the cogs to move the ink cleaning mechanism
  3. There might be a load of paper jam debris blocking the mechanism from reaching its port
  4. Carefully cleaning this out and putting the printer back together

STEP 2: Reset the error

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

Eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)


Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen
