Question about PC Desktops

6 Answers

I have a hunter J111 alignment machine. When I go to set castor and you get to the screen that shows all four wheels are lit up green and even numbers then when you are supposed to turn left as soon as you do then the left front sensor starts blinking the red fault arrow and will not change, If you turn the wheels back to the front you get the all green lights and numbers back. If you stick your hand in the IR beam it takes the numbers from 150 down to 30 then remove your hand the numbers and green comes back?

I have extensive knowlege on this machine. If you are still having the problem, there are very few things that could be causing it, assuming that it is a conventional problem.

This is NOT a software program. For all of you out there, the Hunter J111 in not windows based. There is no software to reload, besides the factory disk that either works, or it doesn't.

This is most definately a Sensor Head problem. As a rule of thumb, it it affects all the heads, it involves the computer, and if it affects only one head, then it is a head problem.

You are simply missing the "Left Turn Sensor" on the toe board. This can be caused by several different problems, including parts and as simple as connections.

First suspect would be the "Toe Board", but you indicated that you have moved it.

Next would be the IR (infared) emitter on the left REAR head. If the emitter has become weak, or blocked, you will have trouble during caster steer. You mentioned that it does not have any trouble during camber; That would be normal. The caster steer function uses a different portions of the toe board sensor to read "Center, left turn, and right turn", so during the "Center", or steer straight ahead position, you would normally experience no problems, even if the left turn function is.

If we can prove that the emitter is doing a fine job, (and we can; a complicated procedure) then we are looking at refreshing, or excercising the electrical connections. I make a great deal of money every year by disconnecting, and reconnecting wires, and solving many problems just like yours. ***IMPORTANT** MAKE NO CONNECTION CHANGES WITH POWER APPLIED TO THE SENSOR HEAD. UNPLUG THE HEADS, AND IF UNSURE, UNPLUG THE COMPUTER!!!

Next, check all the connections at the main board, (Transducer Control Board), and the seating of the EEPROM chips. The chips will walk themselves out of their sockets with temperature changes, through expansion and contraction. Push them back into place, and you may hear a slight "crackling" sound. ***IMPORTANT** MAKE NO CONNECTION CHANGES OR RESEAT CHIPS WITH POWER APPLIED TO THE SENSOR HEAD. UNPLUG THE HEADS, AND IF UNSURE, UNPLUG THE COMPUTER!!!

I am almost certain that you are in need of NO parts. These problems are most commonly caused by connections, either at the cables or the chips. Next highest suspect cause would be the left rear emitter.

How far left do you turn the wheel... sounds to me like all it is doing is indicating how far out of range it is for what you are trying to align

Try resetting the machine to factory, or reinstalling system.

Posted on Mar 03, 2009

  • Ginko
    Ginko Mar 03, 2009

    That is because of a setting problem , or because the IR sensor is malfunctioning.

    Check that the IR sensor surface is clean, and try resetting the machine.
    Alsto try tripping the alignment machine circuit breaker for ten minutes, this should also reset to factory.

    I need to find more information on the specific model.

    Finding specific information, like schematics and repair manual on this kind of machine is not easy.

    From description the problem concern the IR sensor calibration, but without a service manual is difficult to fuix the problem.

    The best thing to do is contacting manufacturer using the form here.

Green light on my power supply stays lit after unplugging


Usually the light will time out after the capacitor has drained. Your machine is getting a bit old , your PSU may be the problem. If you plug it in and push the on/off button and it blinks, fans spin and shuts down, it's most likely the PSU. Look for a in-line fuse on the Motherboard, if blown, replace. Look at the motherboard closely for damaged components, capacitors, etc.

Amber colored power light on eMachine W3503


The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.

My dell dimension 2300 powers on,but nothing shows on the screen and i just got a brand new power supply for it.Also when i turn it on the power light isn't lit and it sometimes works.


Hi,
Could you please post back with the status of four lights at the back of the system title ABCD. Also does the system shows the dell logo on the screen as and when the power light comes on.

Try removing the memory and disconnect the HDD and the optical drives from the motherboard and then power on the system. If the system comes on reseat all the above components one by one.
Thank You for using Fixya

Emachine 3240 possible power problem?


I would suggest try to swap the power supply out with another known good power supply.

I've seen where even though the light on the motherboard is lit, it is not getting enough power to start the machine up, especially if you have a higher end video card connected to it.

Dell dimension 3000. Just Black Screen no Windows XP.


From your description, you were able to boot the machine properly in Safe Mode. While in Safe Mode, change the video resolution to the lowest possible (color depth does not matter at this point). You should also check that you are configured for single monitor operation if your video card supports multiple monitors. Reboot the machine normally. If all goes well, you can readjust your video settings for a higher resolution again.

try moving the alignment computer backwards with the wheel turned. sounds like the lazer beam is too close and when the wheel is turned it goes out of range,
considering all other aspects of machine work like camber and toe specs.

No power to my dell dimension 4550


It might be a couple of things bad powersupply or power button incorrect ram module or hard drive settings ,if not then lastly have a bad motherboard which we all hate. you said you have a a green light on motherboard? Did you upgrade or install any new ram ,harddrives etc check make sure they are seated properly in their sockets and free from dust check connection on the ram module make sure it shinny brass color if not you can use an eraser to clean them. If you have upgraded check make sure the ram is compatible to your machine sometimes the wrong ram install can cause no power up problem. Do you have four green lights in the back of machine? Dell new desktop has 4 green light in back of the unit . if all four light are green then system is ok but one out of the four light are orange then you have a problem. You can go onto dell web sight for your machine to check out these lights codes. I hope this help you out some.

H2862 Will not power up


This is a common e-machines problem. You were right to change the power supply. Most e-machines come with dangerously (fire balls shooting out the back) low powered power supplies that can even catch on fire. Most people install their power supplies for e-machines backwards meaning they put the 20+4 pin connector in the 4 pin connector next to the processor and it fries. Others don't do anything and the computer is just fried. It's one of the reasons no one should buy an e-machine. If you want someone to fix it for you or you want a new machine and your files transferred go to www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue and you can get PCs with XP Pro or Linux.
