SOURCE: Will not turn on

When holding the power button, to turn on the device, the screen pixelates dark and then goes blank. If I continue to hold the power button the screen will continue to pixelate dark and then go blank. In the end, the device still will not turn on.

SOURCE: Unit will not stay on. With new batteries

If using rechargeable batteries, your batteries are not getting charged. Check your charger, battery contacts and batteries. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser.

If using alkaline batteries, check placement of the batteries to be certain they are in the correct way, and also, clean the battery contacts.

My kindle fire will not stay turned on! When i hit the on button it seems like its going to go but then the screen goes blank!


Did you try with power plug on ? If ok, the battery is gone. If not, try restarting (keep POWER button pressed several seconds and after few seconds press once). If you see the logo on screen and then black, look in a very dark room to adjust luminosity setting.

Power button only one that won't turn power on


Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

My gateway 450rog computer screen wont come on after i press the power button why


Make sure the machine has power.


The battery might be dead, so connect your notebook to the AC power adapter and plug the adapter into a working AC outlet.


If you have a power strip or surge protector, make sure it is on.


If you are having trouble with battery power, recharge it if it has been fully discharged or replace it if necessary.


Check to make sure the computer is not in "sleep" or "hibernate" mode.

Press a key or the touchpad and wait for it to respond.


Try pressing the power button.

Make sure that you fully engage the power button.


You should press and hold the button for at least half a second but no more than three seconds for the machine to power on.



Adjust the screen's display brightness because it may be too dark. Press and hold the "FN" key and press the key with the icon to increase brightness.


This icon looks like an "up" arrow and a picture of the sun.



hope this helps

JVC KD-AVX1. The head unit will not "turn on" when the power button is pushed. The display just stays off. The face lights up when you press the eject button and opens up and you are able to feed...


is this a headunit you have just installed? if not then I am not sure, but if it is, try swapping the red and yellow wires over. One should have permanent live, the other should be switchable. (unless you want the headunit to stay on when the ignition is off, in which case put them both to a permenant live feed.)
Hope this helps.

Flip up screen won,t illuminate. dark


if the screen needs to be wired to the dash light switch it will not change unless the lights are on, if the wire is disconnected it is possible to bypass it making the screen stay bright.
although it would seem more likely that the brightness could be adjusted on the unit settings or by a button on the unit itself

Can't get the Hourly chime to shut off - tried going to alarm, then hitting adjust Button - alarm shuts on or off , but not Chime


using the mode button (lower left, go to the alarm. once at this screen, hit the "12/24H" button (lower right). now hit the "adjust" button (upper left), that should toggle the hourly chime on and off. you'll see the bar next to 'SIG'. when it's lit, it's on, when it's blank, it's off.

Battery on my HTC s710 lasts for 3-4 hours


if you momentarily push the "start" button, that should put the phone into hybernation. Which means the screen will go dark and quit using power. If the phone rings it will automatically wake up. If you want to use it just hit the start button again.

There are also some settings in the "settings" menu that determine when and for how long the screen stays illuminated when not in use.
