Inspiron 7120 wiring diagrams

It worked a couple days ago, and I updated everything for windows and it was fine. Now it looks like maybe the battery is dead? Even though I push the button on back of battery and it's lighting up. So, there is that unconnected wire under the hinge on the right side by monitor. Also, you push the power button and the HD lights up for a second, then fans stop, then the battery light goes on.

    I took pics of loose wire, not sure if I can attach here though.

  • D. Mullen Apr 16, 2014

    option 1 won't work as the computer won't power up, option 2 had nothing to do with my monitor (just had it fixed) and option 3 I tried doing that several times and nothin. :(

    Well, no responses so I just have to save some money and will get a new battery.

SOURCE: Broan Allure QS3


The Problem is the wiring. Take the 2 screws retaining the metal plaque off underneath the filters. You will see the wires leaving the motor going into a "molex" plastic connector which connects two another set of wires going to the control board. Check to see if the wiring colors match from side to side of plastic connector. Ive only seen it happen once but it was exactly that. I do service calls for broan & Nutone

SOURCE: no dome light on tacoma

The dome light gets 12 volt battery power at all times. The door switch, when the door is opened, allows the current to flow to ground, and completes the circuit. The door switch allows the ground to be made. Measure for 12 volts at the wiring connector, and measure for direct short at the ground wire, with the door open. The Ground wire is white with a black tracer.

SOURCE: There is no red.

It could be cable connection. if your using a VGA cable <15 pin> some times a wire breaks inside or is not making good connection to the vid card. It WILL drop one color. so in a pure red area it comes up black but the screen overall will look off or odd colored. The reason for this is the Blue and Green will still be there mixed and no red so the color balance is gone.. I have had a monitor do this. had to final replace it due to loss of red.. this is a uncommon but NOT rare problem in VGA cables . <in very rare cases the connector on the vid card breaks connection on the red/blue/green line so it ends up the card not the monitor or cable

Have a look up under the dash and see if the cable drive has fallen away. If not undo the cable and try pulling out the inner. If it comes away short then its busted. See a parts house for a replacement.

My battery was bad, so I had it replaced and the car worked fine for a few days. One day while out running errands I went to start the car and nothing happened. No sounds, etc. All of the lights work...

Sounds like you have a dead battery again. Who install you battery? Did they check out the charging circuit on your auto. If a professional mechanic installed your battery then have him check everything out; such as, cleaned battery terminals, the ground strap is solidly connected the body, charging system is working. If a professional mechanic didn't install you battery.

Remove the battery from the car/truck and have it fully charged. Clean the ground and positive terminals with wire brush until the lead is bright and all the corrosion is gone. Clean the battery terminals until the batter terminals are bright. Get a couple anti-corrosive felt disk---they look like two big felt washers, one red (+) and other is black (-). Insatll the battery and make sure the terminals are tight. Start the car/truck and while the vehicle is running take a voltage test across the battery with multimeter, volt meter, etc. The voltage across the battery while the vehicle is running should be 13.8V to 14.1 volts. If not, Have the alternator check out!

Like you said you have had everything check out. Check it out again. If everything check out again then there is a internal component, wiring shorted which pulling current the battery and could drain the batter of current within a few days.

If you are using your car for a few days to running errands. You car will run on the battery with no charging cycle working. Once the battery voltage falls below a certain voltage point the computer will only limit certain electrical components work, door locks, maybe one window and this is iffy! The reason why you can't get the transmission out of park is the locking solenoid that operates with the brake switch will not function. This function is a safety procedure that is Incorporated within the vehicle design. . GB...stewbison

Dell inspiron 1440 broken

Maybe you didn`t get all of the updates and you need to go back and do all of them.
Go to START, ALL PROGRAMS, WINDOWS UPDATE and complete all of them, restart when it tells you to and do it again and again until ther are no more updates.

Or you have the choice of removing the updates you complete prevously, if you choose to do this then this is how you do it in Windows 7
Let me know how everything turns out..

My dell inspiron 1525 microphone does not record.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go

Power door locks and windows

The answer to your question is maybe. Get a couple of switches from a junkyard (my guy gets $5.00 each) and try them. Here's why: I have no less than five different wiring diagrams, and none of them make any sense at all (been doing this stuff a really long time) I keep a good switch handy to check my jeeps when one gets wierd on me...even so, my 93 passenger window works with the key off, none of the others do. Stopped trying to figure it out a long time ago, but would really like to meet the guy who designed this stuff!

No power when I try to start bike, just a click…

Check the battery connections. Remove, clean and reinstall them. You probably had them off doing the wiring and they aren't making a good connection now. Always remove the negative first and install it last.
