You need a new Battery. You said if you powered up on the plug its working right? So try to charge the battery like 30mins or so then try to power on to battery. If not get a new batt.

I have a Lenovo Y510 that will NOT shut off or do anything it is completely frozen .. I tried to hit ctrl alt delete all at once nothing happened still frozen any suggestions???

Try holding the power button down for several seconds. Or disconnect the power (pull the plug or remove battery). When you turn it back on, it will probably tell you that you didn't shut it down properly and hopefully you've saved whatever you were working on.

The unit worked fine when i last used it in the fall. I plugged it back in today and all the buttons lit up for about 1.5 seconds and then all the buttons went dark again. So I pushed the "on"...

I have had a problem like this in the past you can try taking the electric access panel usually on the side of the equipment. then look inside you will see a wiring harness inside and it literally takes nothing to bump it loose. This happens when people move these units they are pretty fragile and can be tempermental. Make sure the unit is unplugged while you adjust the wiring harness. If that deosnt work your display board is probably bad. Hope that helps

I have a rca truflat tv and when I plug it in the standby red light comes on but nothing happens when I hit the power button. I have tried holding down the ch- and vol- buttons at the same time and nothing...

I work on a lot of this model RCA, a reputable tv shop can repair this type of problem for less than a new set. You really need a techician for component level repair of this nature.

Won't turn on...

It's possible that the convergence IC's may be bad in this set along with a few resistors. A TV repair shop should be able to fix the set for you.
