If the switches and power are ok (see other answers).....

They're light screws but a dead stop on a hitachi drill like this could be a gear box jam. It can be serviced but is usually too expensive to do and the spare parts to try and do it yourself can be hard to get.

Plus its a rotten job!! :D

SOURCE: Two brand new Hitachi BSL1815X

These batteries have big problems that Hitachi doesn't address very well. Unlike NiCad batteries, Lith-Ion ones must be periodically used and recharged to retain their battery functions, i.e. if they have been sitting on the shelf at a store for an extended period of time, chances are they will be dead when bought and will not accept a charge. If they go dead i.e. no little red light on the charger when you plug the battery unit in...it's basically junk.

If you can return them or exercise the warranty do so. If / when you get new ones DO NOT completely discharge them like you would NiCads. Lith-Ion batteries do not have the "battery memory" issues that NiCads have which means you don't lose running time if you don't fully discharge the battery unit prior to recharge. Completely discharging before recharge will ultimately kill them. Use the 1815X till almost dead and then charge it. It is also recommended Lith-Ion batteries not be stored fully charged i.e. charge the 1815X fully, drive a couple bolts or screws, remove the battery unit and then put it away. Do not leave battery unit plugged into the tool when you put the tool away. This will discharge and kill the battery unit.

There are non-Hitachi substitute batteries now on the market. I'm guessing the same precautions apply but I don't own one of the replacements so I don't truly know.

The actual batteries in the Hitachi BSL 1815X are Sanyo UR18650SAX lithium ion batteries. Lithium Ion cells aren't all that easy to get commercially because of handling & safety requirements. Not certain if you can take apart the 1815X and swap out the bad Sanyo cells.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 PC notebook will not load to the WIndows screen. Once booted it just sits on a black screen with a moveable cursor. What can I do to stop this? thanks


Hi pebrouss,

Have you tried power drain? The easiest way to resolve this type of issue is by performing a power drain. Here's how you will do it.

1. First, turn off the unit completely. You may try pressing the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

2. Remove the unit from the power outlet.

3. Take out the battery from the system.

4. Press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

5. Put back the battery and plug the unit to the power outlet.

6. Turn on the system and observe it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I own a doctor's office. All of the toilets (tankless systems) in the building (total of 6) suddenly began flushing simultaneously...Our plumber/maintenance guy has no clue what to do. It is too cold...


Tankless toilets have a shutoff located behind the chrome cap on the flushvalve. The valve looks like a screw. Adjust the screw either clockwise or clockwise until the unit stops flushing. Someone is messing with your plumbing.

No power to unit


What has most likely happened is that somone slowly opened the door when the unit was operating without pusing the stop/pause button first. Doin this will cause the door interlock to blow the internal fuse as it is a design safety interlock to prevent the unit from operation with the door open.

Power plug unplugged

There is a 15A fuse inside the cabinet that must be replaced. Remove the cabinet screws 4 on the side and 6 on the back then slide the cover to the rear about 1/2 inch. Lift the rear of the cover up about 15 to 20 degrees and continue to pull the cover off.

Follow the power cord from where it enters the rear of the unit. The black power wire will terminate at the fuse block. Removed the fuse and replace it with an EXACT type replacement fuse. (buy 2)

If the fuse blows again there is another problem in the unit. If it works normally there is probably nothing to be concerned about. Just make sure that before opening the door you push stop before opening the door.

To re-install the cabinet cover graso the cover from the rear... holding the back of the cover up about 15 - 20 degrees and slide it back into place. Make sure to engage the side locking tabs with the front part of the chassis before installing the mounting screws.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Radio only plays for 1/2 second and then turns off.


Nevermind! My problem was fixed, I'm embarrassed to say, with new batteries. I had been told that the batteries in the radio were new when in fact they weren't. Thanks anyway.

My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working


Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

Acoustic Solutions DVD600k DVD player remote has stopped working suddenly have tried different sets of new batteries no good any ideas


View the back of the remote for screws. Remove the batteries and make sure there's no screw there too. The top of the remote is clipped to the bottom. Use something flat to prise it open, and thoroughly wipe the surface of the board that comes into contact with the keypad, using a clean cotton cloth dipped in methylated spirits. Wipe also, the keypad. Give some time to dry and reassemble.

Grass Hog Battery #243215 (12 VDC SLA) and Charger #371415-11


Open the unit up (six cross-head screws). Inside you'll find a 12V 5.0AH rechargeable battery, like the kind used in many home alarm systems.
You can get a replacement at most battery stores (they'll even pre-charge it for you). Somewhere around $20, I guess.

My PC not turn on


The Toshiba Pocket PC e330 is shipped with an Enabled security feature, which switches off the batteries. In order to be able to turn on the unit, the Battery Switch must be in a battery "Supply" position. Please check if the Battery Switch is in a Stop position or Supply position. The Battery Switch can be found on the lower left edge of the unit, next to the "DC-In Socket". Please see the below diagram The Battery Switch supplies or stops power to the Pocket PC. When using the Pocket PC for the first time, slide this switch to the left with the stylus pen. If you have further questions, please refer to the Instruction Manual page 2-3 (20 of 105).
