Won't come on

A friend gave this to me and I was told to replace the battary and it would work. I've done that and it still doesn't work.  Any ideas?

    I also have that problem but I am unable to find a file name with Sansa in my documents so I am unable to do a hard reset. Any other suggestions?

To do a hard reset on a Sansa m250:

  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

    In step 1, remember to reinsert the battery. You do not need to press any buttons when you plug the Sansa into your computer.

It could be the classic lockup that these players are famous for but usually they botup to the sandisk screen and then its a brick, anyway try a total hardware reset by:
1 taking out the battery.
2 holding the powerbutton down for 40 seconds
3 waiting 5 minutes before putting in a fresh battery and starting over.

Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work


Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

if notebook is getting power, you can remove the battery, ac adapter, hold and keeep pressing poer button for a minute, then, turn it on.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

I have a 2002 Buick Rendevzeous. Sometimes the driver side low beam works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, the turn signal won't blink. It just stays dimmly lit. Right now, the low beam...


You have a bad electrical connection. Check the wiring harness and both sides of it's connectors for corrosion and or breakage. The connector terminals will become worn and corroded and the wiring sheaths a prone to weathering and become brittle. Replace or clean as needed.

I need to replace the brake pads on a friend's mercury sable gs (2000) but he doesn't have a Haynes or Chiltons for it. It's been a while since I've done a brake job and am curious if there...


There is no need to bleed the brakes unless you get air in them. Just removing the pads and pressing the cylinder back in won't let air in. If you are doing rear disc brakes the cylinder on those has to be screwed back in. I've been able to do it in the past by using a pair of pliers to rotate the cylinder but they do make a special tool you can pick up at a part store for this purpose.
