Hopefully this is not a duplicate post as I lost the previose post I spent so long writing when I hit Post Solution.
I had the same issue with mine and finally lost the button. I could not find a way to get it to stay in (and I'm very good a figuring things out like that). I'm pretty sure something broke and left no sign.
I called JVC when it happened back in 2007 but there was no recall on this. The tech I talked to could not find the part and told me it was not available. Two years later I decided to try again and this time talked to a tech lady that was very open about how and what she was looking at to find the part. When she could not find it, she emailed me a parts diagram (exploded view) of every component set that makes up the camera. Turns out that the switch is not mentioned anywhere in the parts list that correlates with the diagrams because it;s part of an assembly that has do be replaced as a whole. This is more info to back up my thinking that the switch can not be put back in place once it pops out. After we both looked at it for a while I found it as the exploded view is not showing that portion of the handle in full view. I forget the name of the assembly but I think it said something like Power(rec?) board IDK. Either way it sounded more of an internal thing but that was it. I will be ordering this part this year so I will have to dig up all that info again. The process to replace this switch assembly is very complex and requires that the handle/tape housing be removed from the camera. Then it all has to be taken apart with tons of micro screws and small parts. No unsoldering that I could see (most every mini board disconnects with mini plugs. Let me know if you want more info once I order this part. I think it was around $150 but I hope it is still available.

You can get another button

    Great comment from an expert. Where does one get the button? To say you can get the button and not reference where it can be had is no solution at all. PP just said it was part of an assembly.

I connect my desktop pc but monitor is totally dark. Maybe I've inadvertently set the colors off so I need to know how to work out blindly the buttons on monitor to see anything at all


If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the computer, If the monitor stays dark, and no pop up that says no video, check cable or something like that, and the power LED will stay green, if this happens, it is a bad monitor. If you get the pop up message and the LED turns orange, you are getting no video from the pc to the monitor, and pressing buttons will not fix this. It is something in the PC causing the issue. If all cables are good, and connected right.

Television will not stay on. Runs for 5 seconds then goes into standby mode.


Modern Flat Panel Televisions these days are really just computers inside. The Switch Mode power supply has the ability to sense faults & over current draw. So... there really isn't much the average person can do to fix an electronic problem.
The usual problem is overheating, bad connector problems & electrolytic capacitors leaking or popping. If you don't have the skills to open & look for problems then you will have to take it to a tv electronics guy.

Locked Keyes in trunk of 91 Lexus


I don't know about back seat access, but you may have a feasible idea about the 12volts -maybe. Does your vehicle have a button on the dash to pop the trunk?? If so, that button works with the ignition switch in the 'on' position. Obviously you can't use the button since you can't turn the ignition to on. However, if you can get to the contacts of that button, you may be able to energize the trunk opener. Hopefully there are only two wires on that button switch, which will simplify matters. If you take a wire from the Positive battery terminal to the button switch, you may be able to energize the opener. If it's a two terminal switch, one side or terminal is power (12v) in, and the other terminal is 12v out. If you put 12v to one terminal and nothing happens, push the button. Can you pop the hood to get to the battery???? If not any 12v battery can work, lawn mower battery, etc. : Negative terminal of battery to car frame, positive to switch. This would be a low current draw, so the wire can be anything like speaker wire. Since the wire is live, just be careful not to have it touch any other bare wire connections or part of the frame, etc.If this works, it will probably set off the alarm, since the ignition switch is off. I really don't know if this will work, but if I was in this dilemma, I would try it. After all said and done, someone might be able to tell you how to access the trunk by way of the back seat. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

DELL INSPIRON M5030 frusturating issue (tried almost everything)


A) How did the Power Button Module get broken?

B) Error indicates losing data and unable to leave Hibernation Mode.

It's a long shot, but let's see if you can reset BIOS Settings back to default, without being able to see the BIOS Setup screen.....

Remove the AC adapter (Charger)
Remove the Battery.

Remove the RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock. Same as CMOS Battery, but with a new name)
Oh, excuse me.....Dell = Coin-Cell Battery

Power Button Module flat flex cable installed in motherboard connector, press the Power On button, hold it down for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Reinstall Coin-Cell Battery
Reassemble laptop.
Reinstall Battery, THEN AC adapter, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

Let's see if we can revert the BIOS Setup settings, back to the factory default settings.

C) Dell refuses to help you since your warranty expired.
Not sticking up for Dell, but Really?

You're telling me they're not going to take your laptop, and fix it for a specific amount of money?

"No thank you Mr.Robertson, we're a laptop manufacturer, and money is of no consequence!"
We get by just knowing people out there like our laptops.
That, food stamps and the occasional barbecue Gates puts on at his place, gets us by."

Right.

Did you know I'm Brad Pitt? Angelina is in one of her moods again, so I come on here.

(Just trying to be funny)

D) LED lights 2 & 3 stay on

LED 2 is the Harddrive Activity LED.
Should stay solid as the harddrive isn't active

LED 3 is the Battery Status LED.
Solid amber indicates ON, or Standby.

Did you follow Anti-Static Procedures, during the Power Button Module replacement?

Plus, I'm willing to bet the Power Button Module, didn't come from Dell. Another reason they would not want to work on the laptop.
They can't guarantee the replacement part is good.
(They can, but there are too many liability issues)

Power Button Module being broken, is what I'm concentrating on at the moment.

This was the start of the problem. From it all other problems have issued.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The carbon contact Power On switch on that Power Button Module.

http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=9908

Was it broken so it stayed pressed to the on position?

Also need to know the full extent of damage caused by the Power Button Module being broken.
In my estimate it took a pretty hard hit in that area, to break that board.

Lastly for now; The Power Button Module has a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
Is it replaced back in the SAME position? Not flipped over?
It will go in either way. Right side up, or flipped over.

Please post back in a Comment.

I have toshiba equium a100-338 and the power button will not work


The cable (Wire) stays attached to the Power Button Board,

No, I'm wrong? The Flat Flex Cable (FFC) does come out of a ZIF connector on the Power Button Board?
You may wind up buying the Power Button Board, and Flat Flex Cable, then.

Or you may find a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, that can repair the cable.

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931BF. I love the screen, but for quite awhile, the screen has been having a hard time coming on and staying on. I'll have to cycle the power multiple times to get the screen...


Remove its stand
Unscrew all the screws in the back.
It doesnt just lift off I guess you could say, there are many clamps around the edge that need to be "popped" by sliding anything thin enough to get between the front and back of the case to pop them.

I popped mine open the other night. The clamps appear to be hard to break, at least in my circumstance. None of them broke with a fair amount of pressure from pulling being applied.

Also, mine had your exact same issue until one day it no longer turned on completely. It just flashed the screen once and showed a flashing power light around the button. Replacing 3 capacitors that were just barely bulging on the top fixed the issue.
