M1070 wont come on just flickers

Please make sure the tablet is charged for at least 4-6 hours. Also, make sure the correct button is being used, oftentimes we hear the back or home button has been used in error. If the issue persists, you can try performing a power reset. There should a power reset button near the charging port. It looks like a tiny hole. While plugged into the charger, use a paperclip to push the button inside this hole for 3-5 seconds. If it turns on, please allow it to charge for 4-6 hours before using it. If you leave it on the charger for longer than the allocated time, you will go back to having the same problem as before. If the power does not come on, please leave it plugged up for 4-6 hours then disconnect it from the power and turn it on.

If your tablet does not have the reset button: With the tablet plugged into the charger, hold the power button for 10 seconds then click the volume up once. If it turns on, please allow it to charge for 4-6 hours before using it. If you leave it on the charger for longer than the allocated time, you will go back to having the same problem as before. If the power does not come on, please leave it plugged up for 4-6 hours then disconnect it from the power and turn it on.

Problem with Selectric II typewriter engaging when turned on

Your on/off switch may be bad but it sounds like your motor needs to be flushed, lubed, and possibly have a bushing installed.

How do you operate the mt10 moisture meter?

Turn on the meter by pressing the large button below the LCD screen; this is the single button below the 3 buttons. To change modes, press and hold this button for 3 seconds or more. The Setting mode symbol will begin to flicker. Press the power button again to toggle through the available modes. When you have the mode set, wait until the symbol stops flickering to take a measurement.

In the wood mode, just press the probes into the wood to get the moisture reading. The unit will turn off after 1 minute. If you want a deep moisture measurement, put a pair of screws (shorter than the width of the board) into the wood at the same distance apart as the probes. Then press the probes to the screw heads.

The manual for the MT-10 is available from the manufacturer: .

I hope this helps.

When the laptop is turned on, the screen rolls & flickers. I can press on the sides & it stops.

Hello collensdrea,
Welcome to!
Sorry to hear what's happening to your laptop. I would lke to ask you to follow a few steps to check and see if this is a faulty display or not. Please follow the following steps:
1. Turn the laptop off 2. Unplug the AC adapter (if connected) and remove the battery 3. Press & hold the power button for 40 seconds w/o the battery installed or the AC adapter plugged in 4. Let go of the power button, reconnect the AC adapter and put the battery aside for the meantime 5. Turn the laptop on by pressing the power button and the second you turn the laptop on, tap F2 several times to load the laptop's BIOS.
What is a BIOS? This is a special screen that let's you make changes to your laptop's motherboard. Please do not wander around as it may cause the more problems if you are not sure of what you are doing.
The reason why we went here is to see if we can still recreate the same issue i.e. the screen rolls & flickers.
If it still rolls & flickers, I'm afraid you need to contact Acer to have your computer sent to Depot or serviced.

My lacie hdd 500GB, i forgot the password to get into the online interface someone please tell me what the defult might be and if there is a way to reset the password if it is not the defult without...

-Turn the drive off
-When pushing the power button to switch the drive ON, keep holding the power button until the blue LED of the power button starts to flicker and then release the button.
-Then, after 1 or 2 seconds the button's LED should flicker with another rhythm.
-Push the button again. After a few seconds, the LED will flicker again but with a third different rhythm. Release the button. -If the drive turns off then the power button was held in two long during the last step, please try again if the drive powers off.

The product should now be reset to its factory default settings.

In the logon window that opens, type:
    User Name: admin
    Password: admin
(This user name and password is the factory default; if you have already created a user, input your user name and password. This is the administration logon and you can change it for more security if you choose.) The NAS Administration page will open in your default browser.
