Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

We have a Hardy irrigation computer model TC-1800LX II which has acquired a ghost. Every day at midday it turns itself on at station 1 and will run the whole cycle thru unless switched off.

I have been thru everything I can think of, even turned the power off and removed the battery so it would drop any programming but it remains. We are a retail nursery and it can be a little embarrassing to have this start up when we have customers in that station area. Do you have any suggestions for exorcising this ghost. Thank you.

SOURCE: Laptop turning off

Hello, This usually indicates a heating problem. You can do the following tests to furthermore reduce the "suspects" list. If the power adaptor is damaged, or you think may cause that you can simply check the green led on it. These power adaptors are actually ac/dc convertors that have some electronic protections incorporated. If for some reason they get damaged they woun't be able to provide the required current to keep the laptop powered up and they will turn off. Also if the laptop is damaged and drains more power then usuall the adapter will automatically cut off power due to a internal failsafe protection. In any of these cases you can notice that the green led turns off even if the adapter is still plugged in. A service intervention is required here because most likely the problem is with the laptop requiring more current then usual, not the adaptor being damaged and not able to provide. Another thing you can check is the way this problem occurs. Try powering laptop using only battery power one time, and only ac power another time. If the problem still appears, it is not related to the power source being used, and combined with the first test, gives you a pretty shure way to know that batteries and charger are pretty much OK. Now my personal "main suspect". To prove you my point, do the following test. Use both battery and ac power for this one. Turn on the laptop and check the clock to see how much time it will stay on while running iddle, without you doing anything to it. Just keep it on. You will get a time value. Then another time check to see how much time it will stay off when you use it very intensly for playing video games, using as much programs as possible at the same time or playing a movie and in the same time playing music from another program. I guess in this case, it will turn off a lot faster than first case. The reason is this: All HP laptops (pretty much all laptops) have a failsafe device built into them that measures the processor's main temperature. If this rises above a certain safety level that device will simply power off the laptop to avoid processor overheating. Normally as you can gues, this isn't suposed to happen because the cooling system of your laptop should take care of the extra heat. However, over time, the cooling system can become inefective due to dust stuck into it, blocking the air ducts or reducing the spin speed of the small cooler inside. Because of this, the cooling system can't perform at nominal eficiency and overheating becomes a problem. In this case, you will have to go to a service center, but don't worry, it's not an expensive repair. They would most probably have to simply clean up the cooling fan or the air ducts in order to have the cooling system work properly again. Where to go? If your laptop is in warantty and you have this option, send it to a hp authorised service. If not... avoid them because they are expensive. TRy a smaller generic "laptop service" not the larger ones working for corporation. The smaller ones are more cheaper and there is absolutely no difference in the quality of the work being done, having noted the simplicity of the problem. If you however need more assistance, I can gladely assist. Also please excuse my poor english as I live in a non-english speaking country. Good luck and please rate any answer received from the members of this site.

maybe..maybe not..docking stations are not always the answer, if it's further down the line on the motherboard.

SOURCE: Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

SOURCE: turn off by itself

it is static in the battery.

with the computer turned off.

hold down the power button for approx 40-50 seconds.

Take out battery.

Plug in ac adapter, and turn on computer. Then replace battery.

Basically this has drained the battery and removed any static energy, and it takes approx 1 hour to recharge.

Problem solved in 99%.

Tip

Drip it don't drop it


The popularity of Drip Irrigation Systems has been rising in the past years. It is true that this method of irrigation is usually a bit more expensive than sprinklers and isn't as resistant on the long run, but on the other hand the water saving and the system's efficiency definitely make it worth it. So why not giving it a try?

First of all, this system waters plants and flowers more slowly and the water goes straight to the roots, so no water goes to waste.

Moreover, it requires to be activated with less frequency than sprinklers.
In most countries it's one day of irrigation every week during the winter, two days during spring and fall and three during the summer.

Did you get one yet?
If you did here are two basic suggestions to start and keep up a satisfying drip irrigation system.

1. In order to figure out how long to leave it running, you can measure how much water your emitter produces and according to that and your plant's needs, set the system's timer.
So take a spoon and measure how many seconds the system takes to fill it up.
14 seconds = 1 gph (gallon per hour)
7 seconds = 2 gph
4 seconds = 4 gph
If your system is of the first kind, producing 1gph, usually you should leave it running for about 90 minutes, if it's the second (2gph) for about 60 minutes and if the third (4gph) for about 30 minutes.
(If your plants require a higher-flow emitter you can get one that produces up to 20 gph and leave it for about 12 minutes each watering.)

2. In order to keep your drip irrigation system in good shape check its line periodically for breaks, or its emitters for clogs.
Make sure that each emitter releases the right amount of water.
Also you should flush the drip irrigation lines and filters about twice each year. You can do this by uncapping the end cap on the drip line and letting water flush through the line.

Good luck!

How stop sprinklers from starting over


You only program the first zone to turn on at a specific time. The rest of the zones go in sequence.

How to wire hunter rain clik rain sensor to r8816p101c


1) There are different rain clik model numbers shown in manual
Open 24 volt Rain clik manual:
http://www.hunterindustries.com/resources/pdfs/instructions/domestic/lit358w.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Hunter-rain-clik-instruction-manual.pdf

2) The rain sensor has two wires.
And two additional wires are needed to run from rain sensor to sprinkler timer. For example, buy thermostat wire from local hardware store if wire is not supplied.

3) The rain sensor has a terminal block where wires are connected. .
Open manual above to identify markings on your terminal block.
For example Figure 1 shows SRC model, and with this model number, the rain sensor wires connect to terminals RS and C, and then two wires going to timer connect to terminals RS and and 1.

4) R8816P101C is 208-240Volt 24-hour irrigation timer.
Timer has two separate terminals for attaching rain sensor.

5) Timer power connections have 4 terminals. Do not connect rain sensor to power terminals.
Connect wires from sensor to the two sensor terminals.

6) Timer slide-switch must be set to ON position for rain sensor operation.
Sensor sends continuous 24Volts to irrigation timer.
When it rains, the rain sensor stops sending 24Volts to timer. Timer responds by not turning on power to irrigation pump.
To by-pass rain sensor, move timer slide-switch to off position.

7) Open following link for Intermatic replacement parts:

8) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have a 6 station orbit timer and I have problem with station 2 odd days coming on again after station 4 odd days the time is set to come on at 6 am and run for 60 min an10 min after it shuts off to start...


I am somewhat confused about your station numbers. How many stations do you have? What is Ihappening with stations 1, 3, 5, 6?
Regardless, this is probably what is happening.
No matter how many stations you have, YOU ONLY PUT IN ONE START TIME. That one start time begins the cycle that starts with station 1 and proceeds to the other stations based on your station RUN times.
If you have one start time of 6:00 am, and a run time of 60 minutes for each zone, then
At 6:00 am station 1 starts.
at 7:00, station 1 shuts off & station 2 starts.
at 8:00, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts, etc.
You are not programming the individual start times for each station.
If you put in more than one start time, the timer remembers and will run all stations then go back and begin again and if there is a third start time, it will begin a third time.

Model 57882 9 station timer I did set up station 1 where do I begin in order to set up station 3


Question is not clear.
Do you have programming problem with the timer?
Or problem locating sprinkler heads?
Or a sprinkler valve problem?
Add a comment with detailed information.

Sprinkler timer turns ON-and-OFF.
Timer does not advance the sprinkler to next station. The sprinkler valve advances to next station when timer turns OFF.
For example, when timer turns ON, then station 1 starts watering.
Timer turns off, and then sprinkler valve automatically advances to station 2.
Timer turns on again, and station 2 starts watering.

Wires were disconnected from timer and need to reconnect do not have manual


First, assume that the white wire is the common and connect that to the C terminal.
Then connect all of the other colored wires to station terminals, starting with terminal 1 until you are out of wires.
Then turn on zone one manually. If it works, note where it is on your property and turn on zone 2. Do the same until you have run all of your zones.
Lastly, move the wire connections on the terminals so that there is some order as to how the zones come on around the property.
If no zones run when you try to run zone 1, disconnect the white wire from the C terminal and try connecting the green. Try your zones again.
If none of this works, you need an electrical testing meter (multimeter) to determine which wire/wires are the common(s).
