It could be that the hard drive is probably loose and is no longer connected to the enclosure sata controller. You can open the enclosure to see if something came loose. If it did then reconnect the parts and try to power it up. Worse case, you will have to get another enclosure for the hard drive should the enclosure is no longer operable. This is to say there was no damage down to the hard drive. Make sure warranty has expired before voiding warranty by opening enclosure.

I have an lg 32lx2r tv the stand by light comes on but the tv dont. some thime if i switch it off at the mains then back on then the tv comes on but not all the time. what can i do & can you help...


Good day!

Please follow this procedure to fix your problem:
  1. Open the cover of your TV.Remove all screws at the back.
  2. Next,power ON the TV and check the output voltage of power supply using voltmeter.
  3. It should have not less than 5vdc for system board,12vdc for sounds and 24vdc for inverter board.If the 3 supplies are got a voltage drop your power supply had problem.For example if you check the 5vdc then the reading is 4.50vdc only.
  4. If you have voltage drop,check some leak/bulge on top capacitor on power supply.replace it by using soldering iron and soldering pump.
  5. When the power supply looks like OK,no voltage drop and no leak/bulge on top capacitor.The problem is your system board or main board.There's no easy remedy for that.You have to replace the whole system board.
I hope this solution helps you to fix your problem.Thank you and good luck.

My Toshiba satellite P305D-S8834 will not turn on. It was not dropped. I opened our lab top and it would not turn on. I push the power button and lights come on with the power switched an indicator lights....


More an likely its your LCD. If it powers up and you are getting a hard drive activity light then that points to your LCD, could be a damaged backlight or inverter.

I have 12 volts constant on my power wire coming from my battery but when I connect the p.cont. wire to the amp the voltage drops out. The green indicator light comes on for a split second then fades away...


Your P.cont is not hooked up to a correct power source... Make sure that you dont have it possibly hooked up to the power antenna wire by mistake. The p. cont. (remote turn on) should always send constant power one the key is turn on in the vehicle.

Lack of power


LOTS OF THINGS!... did the CHECK ENGINE light come on? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

My Belkin 802.11g Wireless Desktop Network Card keeps dropping its connection. This happens every minute or so at present. Signal strenght to BT Home hub is strong (four bars) and drivers are up to date....


Sounds like you need to re-sync your modem and router. Remove the power plug from the modem and router. Then first plug the modem power on and wait for all the lights to come on. Then plug the power to the router and wait for all the lights to come on. Re-start your PC and see if it is ok. Good Luck.

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

Hatterasnc,

You're alternator has gone bad and the vehicle was running on battery power. The "clicking" sound is your now dead battery that does not have enough power to turn over the starter. You might also want to check your power steering pump for leak. This is a know problem with early LS400s and will most likey be the cause of the alternator failure. I just dropped $1050.00 to fix the very same promblems you have.

No pic..or sound


a lot of times when a set is dropped the printed circuit board gets cracked, the only way to tell is to remove the back and printed circuit board and check; if not too badly damaged can be 'hard wired' across breaks and fixed

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Your not going to like this, but remember you did ask..
The only way to recover your data is to use a data recovery centre.
You can try this place if you are in the USA
This is not an endorsement of that particular company, but an idea of what you will be dealing with.

For the record, there is no such thing as a light drop when it comes to hdd's. The drive will have recorded the damage as a G-Force that can be read off the controller board at the factory and will not be covered under any warranty either.

Sorry for the bad news.
