Hi shannonsprou,

this is normal operation for the ipod nano. It is a power saving feature.

Just so long as you can turn the screen on again by click on the scroll wheel. Make sure the ipod is unlocked by sliding the clip at the top of the ipod nano so no orange shows on top.

    ok, i think then the battery might be giving up. Before you take it in for service, you should try restoring the ipod and updating the firmware. You can do this through itunes.

    Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed by running software update for your pc or mac.

    if you wish to return the ipod for service, you can find a local apple reseller by calling apple on 1-800-MY-APPLE

    Or you can visit an apple retail store by visiting

    Hope this helps.

When i turn on my coputer it beeps 4 times and then everything loads up and works fine for about 2 minutes and then the monitor goes blank and reads no signal.The coputer works fine in safe mode.

Sounds like something on the motherboard is dying. If you look up the model number of your computer on Google, the manufacturer usually has beeps pertaining to an error. So, try researching "4 beeps" with your model of computer after it.

When you plug the back in, does the display come back on or does the laptop need to be powered on again?

If you need to power on again, your battery is faulty.

Remove the battery. Unplug the timer. Make sure that the front of the timer is properly connected to the internal board. Plug the timer back in. Try to operate the timer using manual watering. The battery is only for backup, don't install it until you get the timer to operate on ac power first.

My ce 2100 doesnt work anymore.. i plug it in and at shows a battery bar charging for a few minutes then the screen goes blank and i can turn it on or even charge it again can i change the battery?

yes. Once you plug it in it should automatically start charging. If the screen goes blank leave it for about 15 min. Unplug it and start it to see if it has charge. I hope this solution has been helpful.

Toshiba a135 laptop screen goes blank during battery use. Only way to recover is to put the laptop to sleep blinking orange and then restart. This action keeps the screen on. Could this be a bios problem?...

It's probably not a BIOS problem.

You should go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> change advanced plan settings.

Try configuring the setting for "Plugged in" and "On Battery" to be the same. That way your laptop won't go through wierd configurations when you unplug.

Try cleaning your computer with compressed air too.

There is a white blank screen when i turn on

A white blank screen usually means that there is no data reaching the LCD. This can be caused by a bad video card, bad cable, or bad LCD. Rarely, the cable is just unplugged on either the back of the LCD or on the system board (or video card if separate).

Coputer screen blank

Unfortunatly I think the S-print circuitboard just went bad. You will need to go to a dealership and have one ordered and installed.
