My Icebox Flipscreen Computer/TV/DVd/CD/Radio won't turn on...

...since I disconnected it from the outlet to paint the walls. I re-connected it and have power, as the switch in the back lights up when I turn it on but have no LED light in the front. There isn't a reset button available either. Please help me fix this or help me find someone who is qualified and can get parts if necessary. I'm hoping there is a small fuse inside that can be replaced, but I'm not qualified to disassemble. Applica Comsumer Products has refused to help saying they only service this product if it's less than a year old and have no solution. They will (and I quote) ''cannot supply parts if it is older than I year as they need them for newer customers''.  Need help desperately!! Chris in Los Angeles, Ca.

    Sounds like a power supply issue. Can you give me any details on the power supply. I'll try to find a replacement. A model number or anything for the power supply or the PC.

I have the same problem as yeahnay1998. I was watching the TV one minute and then I heard a loud humming noise. The screen changed to "searching", the LED light is now orange. I disconnected everything and then let it rest. When I started everything up again later...nothing but loud humming and dark screen. I mainly used it for TV, but was able to use internet when I needed it. Does anyone know what I should do next?

Shuttle won't boot up

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE or SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

I have a dvd Rom sata connected and an ide connected but the ide won't read. i brought a new ide (same brand LG) i plug it in and the pc won't load up. it says insert disk. i plug the old one in...

You need to check that you don't have the same identifier for 2 IDE drives. you can only have one "Master" and one "Slave" on each IDE channel. If you have 2 of one the computer won't know what it is supposed to be doing with the drive.

Hello my computer will not connect to my screen anymore. I have a LG lcd monitor and tv it was working yesterday wen i turned it off and 2day wen i turned computer on my screen won't get the signal....

Check the cables and if this doesn't work try a different screen. In the event that a different screen does not cure the problem you may have bigger problems. It could be Ram failure it could be Graphics card failure or it could even be HDD failure. Always try the easiest and cheapest bits first.

I have a problem with lenovo s10-2. help me fix when i turn i see power displayed also the fan activated for just a seconds after that it will stop. no displayed on the monitor.

Let's trouble shoot a little. Disconnect everything inside. Ie. the cd, dvd, HDD, floppy if applicable. Also, video card if you added one to it. Connect monitor to the onboard video and lets see if we get power with nothing connected. If so then start plugging things back in one at a time until you find the culprate

Upon powering on the system won't go past the boot

> problem with barebone system
> asks for a password in the Setup

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Look on the motherboard for three pins in a row, with a jumper between #1 and #2.
Move that jumper to connect #2 and #3. Count to ten.
Move that jumper back to #1 and #2.
The motherboard has been reset to its "factory" settings, i.e., NO password.
Connect the AC power.
Turn the computer on.
Press <DEL> to enter Setup.
It should NOT ask for a password.

Compaq Presario CQ62 need to turn it on and install Norton. I need to stat up my new computer right out of the box. How do I proceed?


First insert the battery. Then, connect the power adapter to your laptop and plug in an A/C outlet. Power on and follow the instructions on the screen to set up. The instructions are pretty straightforward.

Then, to install Norton, insert the CD and follow the prompts.

Hope this helps.

Cd dvd drive wont read

Connect it to another computer, and see if will read.
If not, it is "dead", and needs to be replaced -- $40 will buy you a brand-new CD/DVD-writer.

Beyond Icebox computer

Depends on if you are trying to use a wired or wireless connection. Make sure if you have a wireless card that it is a compatible one. There are only a select few that will function properly on the icebox. If you are using a hard wired connection then make sure you have gone into the connection settings on the icebox to configure the internet and what network to use. When you do this you will be able to connect to your network and surf the web.
