My start button doesn't work, very loose, appears to be off track to engage

Had same problem but solution was different. Start button looked slightly misaligned and wouldn't always work. Followed instructions to pull off front control panel, removed LED display panel and the plastic tab that the start button was attached to had broken off from the panel. Used a good epoxy to glue the edges back together and it works like new. Also broke two tabs that hold the LED panel inside the front plate due to the plastic becoming brittle. Again, epoxy is your friend. Works like new. d04211d8-3b3d-44fc-bc8c-6da6cd6ecf7e.jpg

Smartups 2200 no lights

usually this units have front panel inserted with no screws, pull with your fingers front panel, if you can not remove it, you will have to remove metal cover by removing all screws around it.
Once you remove front panel, you will see a ribbon cable attached to the board, probably is misconnected, if not, probably the problem is in the board.
Be sure to do this with unit off and batteries disconnected.

Changing inputs on hitachi tv 46w500 with out a remote

The Hitachi 46W500 has an Input button on the front of the TV. (This is the second button from the right. The right-most button is the Menu Button.) You should be able to press this repeatedly to switch between inputs.

If the Front Panel Lock is engaged, you need a remote to unlock this. (Only the Power button works when the FPL is engaged.) A universal remote which has a code that matches that needed to get the Menu button to work will do the job.

I hope this helps.

Power button broke gfdn240el1ww

There are two main pieces to the front panel for the GFDN240EL1WW dryer-- the plastic panel and the circuit board. The actual replacement part is: Control Panel WE19M1687. The panel can be purchased for from places like or or Amazon or even EBay, etc. for $100-$200+.

The power button is just a piece of plastic mounted to another piece of plastic; it is not electronic. When pushed, it presses against the circuit board, which then turns the unit on/off. When the power button breaks, it typically means the little plastic button has broken off from the plastic panel. Most likely, the problem is the mount point for the button and the button is actually re-usable.

A cheaper quick-fix is to:
  • Remove top screw from back of the front panel
  • Remove main front knob from the panel
  • Remove screw from behind the front knob
  • Grab both sides of the front panel and push/pull up to remove the panel
  • Disconnect the block connector (power) from the circuit board after removing the panel
  • Locate the power button and mounting position
  • Inspect to see if it looks like you can glue the button back into place
  • Buy a small tube of loctite Stik'n Seal Ultra Universal Adhesive
  • Put some Stik'n Seal on the button mounting point for the power button (be generous)
  • Press the button onto the mounting point and hold for a few minutes
  • Add more Stik'n Seal around the edges of the mounting point and the button mount after you have held the button in place long enough so that it sticks
  • Let the whole thing dry for several hours (instructions on the adhesive say 24hrs
  • If you are worried about the button staying seated while the adhesive sets, you can always try tape it into place
  • When dry, replace the front panel by reversing the steps above used to remove the panel: connect the power block, slide the panel back into place, replace the front screw and knob, replace the top screw in the back of the panel

How to relace power window motor

  1. Raise the window glass to the full-up position if possible. If the glass cannot be raised and is in a partially down or full-down position, it must be supported so that it will not fall into the door well when removing the window motor.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the door trim panel and watershield.
  4. Detach the window motor harness connector.

If the front door power window regulator counterbalance spring must be removed or replaced for any reason, make sure that the front door power window regulator arms are in a fixed position prior to removal to prevent possible injury during c-spring unwind.


If the front door power window regulator counterbalance spring must be removed or replaced for any reason, make sure that the front door power window regulator arms are in a fixed position prior to removal to prevent possible injury during c-spring unwind.

  1. Remove the three window motor mounting screws.
  2. Remove the window motor.

To install:

  1. Position the window motor to the power window regulator. Install the three screws snugly but do not tighten all the way.
  2. Attach the window regulator electric drive wires at the connector and cycle the door window glass to make sure the motor gear engages. After the gears are engaged, tighten the three window motor retaining screws to 54-88 inch lbs.(6-10 Nm).
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.
  4. Check the power window for proper operation.
  5. Install the door trim panel and watershield.

How can I fix the 'on' button on my computer. It

After a while of use the front cover of the PC can come loose causing the issue you are describing. What I would do is turn off the computer (actually unplug it to ensure you don't get shocked) and remove the front-panel of the computer (usually accomplished by prying it off starting at the bottom). If you think you will break the case doing this, remove the side-panel as shown here, then check to see if the front-panel is secured with screws. If screws are securing the front-panel, remove them. Afterward try prying the front-cover off again.

CAUTION: Touch the metal chassis of the case before placing your fingers near electronic components inside the computer! If you don't, even the slightest static-electricity discharge can break electronic components inside your computer.

Just so you know, I've removed front panels from computers multiple times. Never have I removed one without some form of cracking/popping noise being generated. Therefore don't get frightened if you hear one, it's quite normal (especially on Dells).

After you have removed the front-panel of the computer, inspect the power-button-depressor. We're checking to make sure it's not broken or that it slipped out of its housing. If the plastic power-button-depressor is broken, check to see if you can position it in a way that it will still be functional. If not I would remove (break off) the power-button-depressor, install the front-panel making sure that it seats firmly, then use some form of a small device (such as a toothpick, pencil (use the flat end), or some other small device) which will depress the actual power-button inside the front-panel.

However, if the power-button-depressor is not broken, simply install the front-cover making sure it reseats firmly. Afterward check to see if the power-button-depressor functions correctly.

If you're still encountering the same problem I would just break off the plastic power-button-depressor (requiring you to remove the front-panel again. Once again, don't forget to touch the metal chassis to prevent an inadvertent static-electricity discharge) and use a small device (as mentioned above, a toothpick, pencil, or other small device) which will easily depress the power-button inside the front-panel.

Hopefully reseating the front-panel will resolve your issue. Yet if it doesn't, you can still operate the power-button by use of a small device. No, you will not be shocked, nor will you come close to exposed electrical wiring (all wiring inside computers is insulated allowing you to touch it while the computer is running). Therefore the use of a small device to power on your computer is quite practical if your original power-button-depressor broke.

Let us know how things turn out.

92 Explorer 4x4 won't engage

It could be the shift motor assembly needs a little TLC. Check this site out.

But first try the rest button located in the drivers rear qtr panel. Remove the jack access panel and you'll see it up front. It's black with a white button on the bottom. With car running, press reset.

When you rebuild the motor, don't cut the brown wire. Disassamble the connector and the pin slides out the back.

The 4 wheel drive doesn't work in my 89 Ford Bronco

The sound is not coming from the glove compartment, it is coming from the panel behind the drivers seat, that's where the relays and computer are located.
The relays click and apply power to a transfer case motor.
The motor attempts to turn a shaft that engages the front drive shaft.
When the computer thinks the shaft has NOT turned it tries again.
It will try three times then quit, figuring the shaft has not turned.

Get someone to crawl under the vehicle and engage the 4WD (just turn on the ignition- do not start the engine) See if they can hear the motor attempt to turn the shaft, it will make a clicking sound.
If not the connections or the motor may be bad.

I have found the most probable cause is the relays on the control board.
If you are technically adept --
you can remove the small side panel from behind the drivers seat and remove the control board. (remove the power plugs first)
Clean the relay contacts and bend them a little to give them more 'wipe' to keep them clean longer.
Put it back in and turn on the ignition.
Then push the RESET button on the side of the board.
Try the in / out 4WD a couple of times. If it doesn't work turn off the ignition, turn it back on and push the reset button again.
