LG Tone HBS-730 won't turn on

First a couple of questions:

  • How old is the unit?...Battery could be spent and can no longer hold a charge. Replace battery.

  • Is the switch working properly? You should feel a discernable "click" when you turn on the unit. If you don\'t, the piece that moves the on off switch within the unit has probably broken.

    • Fix for broken switch:

      • Get some quality small screwdrivers (flat head and Philips), a small, single color, Terry cloth (to catch small screws), a cutting blade (utility knife), small needle/pin, and a well lit work area.

      • Place Terry cloth on to work area

      • Find rubber stopper just above switch and adjacent to speaker wire that covers the Philips screw.

      • Use needle/pin to remove rubber stopper. Chances are it will fly off once freed from unit, so prick it with needle to attain a firm hold.

      • Use small Philips screw driver to remove screw. Terry cloth should catch screw and keep from rolling off into oblivion.

      • Use utility knife to pry open plastic casing at the seam. It may be best to start at top near the screw hole and work your way down. Use small flat head screwdriver to place between opened area to assist in helping your progress downward. Eventually the entire casing will pop off.

      • Examine the on off switch actuator to determine if this is the problem by moving it back and forth. The actuator should move a small black switch on the circuit board. If the actuator is broken, the switch will move back and forth w/o moving the black switch.

      • If it is determined that the actuator is not moving the switch, use small screw driver to move black switch to "on" position and look/listen for activity, to verify that switch is working.

      • To fix broken actuator, remove it from casing and place on Terry cloth. From examination, you will notice that tab(s) at the bottom have bent or broken off. To repair, a simple solution was to flip the actuator and cutout a the middle section of the tab opposite of the broken end using the utility knife. Be careful to cut too much so that it would not be able to move the switch.

      • Replace the actuator back on the sliding mechanism and test to see if the actuator moves the switch properly. If you cut too much, all may be lost! Perhaps some super glue and a tiny spare plastic piece to attach to actuator may work.

      • Replace plastic covering and replace screw and stopper. (Be careful to return speaker wire knot inside unit to its proper place)

      • Again, check switch to verify that it is working properly.

      • In future, take care when turning on and off the unit. Perhaps too much pressure or faulty plastic may have been the cause of it failing.

Stopped getting cold. lights are working but i don't hear compresor running

I can't confirm model # but it sounds like the defrost timer is stuck. It is usually in the overhead of the refrigerator (not the freezer) sometimes visible, sometimes a cover plate must be removed. It can be advanced w/ a wide straight-slot screwdriver. It will look like a small 3/8" hole that has a thin plastic sleeve lining the edges & two small tabs on the outer edges of the sleeve. The screwdriver goes on the outside this sleeve, not in the hole. It can only be advanced in one direction as the tabs will only catch on the screwdriver tip in one direction. The refrigerator should come right on as soon as you advance the timer. Eventually the timer should be replaced (a relatively simple job).

How do I pull out the air conditioner from the sleeve? Something is holding the middle of the louvers preventing me from pulling out the ac. Help

if its getting hung up on the middle of the louvers check to make sure nothing has pushed the louvers in ,in that spot. Also look inside after you have front cover off to make sure all screws are out and it can have a simple catch lock on the inside to avoid accidental slide out.

IBM Selectric: Why does ball keep typing in the same spot when it gets to middle of the carridge? Space past that spot and it types fine. Hopefully, there is a simple fix. Thanks.

There are 2 black plastic dust covers that get bowed after the years and catch the carrier at the seam where they meet. They may just be loose so first try pushing them down. If that dosen't work take a sharp object and round off the top edge where they meet. If all fails gently remove them it will work fine without them.

No aggitation or spin, high pitched noise.

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupling , empty the unit , tilt it back against something so you can get a good look under it , the motor is in the middle of the pump[front side] and the gear case[back side] the shaft comes out of both ends of the motor , look for the part that connects the motor and the gear case , it is a small round rubber and plastic piece with prongs , all of the prongs have most likely broke off. , replace this and it should be fine. let me know if you have any other questions.

Printer is stating that the is a jam - open cover..

try checking your top cover sensor. close it and wait for the printer warm up.
the black plastic you saw was part of your fuser sleeve. if paper jam always occur try replacing your fuser sleeve
