1 Answer

Asus F3Q will not turn on

I am trying to fix an old F3Q that has a few issues, the main problem being a frayed adaptor plug. I bought a brand new replacement power cord and adaptor pack online but still the laptop will not turn on. Is there anything else I should be looking at?

The connections at pins and holes could just be dirty or possibly the solder is broken loose inside the recepticle in the Asus.Latter is most likely.If you're into fixing it,and the soldered connections in receptical are bad,luck to ya friend.Would but be a good unit to upgrade to Windows 8 with an Intel processor and 4Gb RAM,even a 500 GB hard drive.Hmm,may a swell just buy a NEW ONE.I'm kidding.I personally like working on computers.I've kept this 2008 Toshiba running since August 08.Done probably 10 or 12 re-formats,3 different hard drives,went 4GB RAM and back to 2 GB and made no difference in speed.I'm about to retire this one this week and go to the Asus that I found on sale at Staples for $279,with all the fine bells and whistles I spoke of earlier.Have a food day.Regards,Rigger.

SOURCE: charging my asus 701 laptop

Usually what happens is that the ac connector on the laptop get loose. It happens when you wiggle the ac adapter out rather than pulling it/pushing it straight in. You can check if this is the problemsby
powering off the laptop. Insert the ac adapter. just slightly wiglle it. if it wiggles at all, then this is the problem. It can be fixed by resoldering the connector back on the System board, which entails taking the laptop completely apart.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: my power cord is plugged in but the power meter

yes, this could be the connector on your motherboard issue. ask for replacement or repair from your manufacturer if unit is still under warranty.

SOURCE: My ASUS U50F turns off

Since it is only 7 months old, I assume it is still under warranty. So, best is to have it checked by a technician at the service center.

SOURCE: I lost my power cord

You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).

How do I fix a a PS4 controller that doesn't charge or turn on?

It seems as if you shorted out the board or probably one or two components ( capacitor, resistor, diode etc.) and those components are surfaced mount components therefore, if you don"t have any electronics background I suggest that you get it replaced.

Sagem dtr 6400t makes a whirring sound when you turn it on as if it is loading but nothing else happens. No screen is loaded so cant access any menus or anything

My Sagem DVR 6200T/6400T developed this problem. Initially, over a few days when I tried switching on the box via the normal button on the remote, the display would we black (no readout) but the box still made a whirring noise as if it was working and it would take about upto 15 mins for the display to come on and then I could use the remote as normal. After doing this for a couple of days the display evenutally stopped appearing, so the box would keep on making a whirring sound as if its was trying to initialise but nothing would be displayed on the readout and nothing happens if you press the handset. I tried turning it off and on at the mains plug, plugging the connections in and out of the box and television and at one point gave the box a 'smack' out of frustration. Amazingly I momentarily got a flashing error message:- either pb03 or p603 which upon looking online (for ages) apparently means an initialising error which seemed to make sense. NOTE- I do not recommend other people try 'beating up' their box. Anyway, this error never reappeared after turning the box off and on at the mains plug. After further research someone on this fixya site said try changing the Sagem adapor cable. I found an old external hard drive and the adaptor cable, which has the same input and output information as written on the Sagem AC/DC adaptor cable fitted and my sagem box now works fine again. And to think I was on the verge of paying out over £139 for a new box and amazingly all that was wrong with the old box was the cable! Points to note about using a different cable:- make sure the part that plugs into your box is the same size. Another adaptor I had rooted out from an external cd drive worked but it kept on switching the box off because the connection into the box (round plug) was slightly too small. The input should be 100-240V-50/60Hz and the output +12V=2.0A. Apologies for writing so much but because I no nothing about electrics I am trying to explain what I mean in laymens terms. I also suggest if you are in doubt, take your old cable into an electrical store like Maplins and get the advice you need about a new cable that is the same input and output as your sagem adaptor cable so that you do not plug in an AC/DC adaptor that could do further damage. AC/DC adaptors do not cost much and you may find that an universal adaptor set correctly may work.
I would like to thank the person who posted the solution because it worked for me and has saved me a lot of money.

Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere Portable Speakers for Apple iPod . It keeps shutting off after a few minutes. It's plugged into a wall outlet.

Many have reported the same issue, reset the pure-fi with the reset switch (on bottom) while it is turned on, then put your iphone/ipod at 75+ % of volume before/while playing.

5550 not powering on

was the battery a exact replacement to the one you removed?

also do you have the power adaptor for it put the old battery back in and see if it will run off the adaptor with the old battery plugged in and then you know the issue is with the new battery and not the unit itself.

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
