SOURCE: Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.

SOURCE: Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.

SOURCE: HP ZV5000

For all those with the ZV series power jack problem, I have replaced a few of these jacks and it is not an easy job unless you are an engineer.

The entire laptop needs to be disassembled, all the panels need to be removed, including the keyboard and you almost have to remove the motheboard.

Even when you eventually gain access to the offending part, you will need to be competent in using a soldering iron to remove the jack without damaging the printed board, then clear the holes so the new jack can be fitted.

While you are doing all this, you need to remember that the circuitry is static sensitive. This means that you can kill your motherboard just by touching it.

When you have finally finished the job, unless you have been pretty smart, you'll end up with a box full of different size screws and you won't know what goes where!

With the ZVs I have repaired, I usually supply a short jumper lead that plugs into the power jack on the back of the laptop. This is two or three inches long with a cable power socket on one end and a power plug on the other. This means that the user can leave the power plug plugged into the laptop all the time and just disconnect and reconnect the power unit from the other end of the patch lead instead of wearing out the laptop's power jack.

SOURCE: No Power - Power Indicator 3 Seconds

This line of hp notebooks is the most notorious for power jack issues. There a re a few different symtpoms but 95% of all problems can be fixed with a power jack resoldering or replacement. It very rarely damages anything else on the motherboardis and seldom has anything to do with the power adapter/supply itself. There are a few options:

1) take to computer repair shop and get new power adapter. (As this requires a complete tear down of the notebook, it can be a bit expensive in terms of labor. The part is less than $10 on ebay and is readily available. You can download the service manual and break down the notebook yourself and take just the mb and new adapter to the shop and save some money. I don't recommend attempting to soldering on the MB yourself

2) If you don't need portability as much as just being able to use the laptop at home, then purchase an xb2000 expansion base from craigslist and power thru the docking port on the side. Be sure and confirm that the adapter is included with the purchase as some owners may have discarded it since their particular model didn't need it.

3) If you can manage to get an XC1000 cable for a reasonable price off ebay or craigslist, this is a portable option. However, as they stopped making these All-In-One media cables a while back, those who have them know their value and command a pretty hefty price. I personally would rather pay a computer repair shop a $150 before I pay some person who capitalizes on my misfortune.

4) I am in the process of confirming this least expensive solution but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
-- adapter from the xb2000 expansion base (you can pick these up cheap or free)
-- xc2000 all-in-one media cable ($35 - $50)
-- 120w power adapter for Presario R4000,R4100, R4200, and Pavilion ZV6000 (oval shaped multi-pin connection required.) Note: The original lower wattage adapter will not work. ($25 - $30)
Although this solution may cost a little bit depending on how creative you are, you can sell your old power adapter to offset the cost of the new adapter AND you can sell all 3 for what you paid when the laptop dies completely.

5) the paper clip trick has been known to solve a few problems where the connection in the socket is the problem

Ultimately, you can purchase a MB and replace it your self, the MBs run around $150 and you can use the service manual to break down the notebook. However, this is only a recommended solution if you have video problems since breaking down the laptop is just time consuming and the soldering of the power adapter is cheap

SOURCE: I have a Gateway NX560XL laptop. The other day it

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

My camera is a vivitar pink (MID0050609) and it wont turn on, unless i plug it it to my charger and when i do the light on the left is red and it just blinks then flash a blue screen turns on that says...


MSDC is not a problem code. It is normal, the camera is informing you that it's connected to a computer. At this point you should see a new "drive" show up in my computer to transfer pictures.

Have you tried turning the camera on when plugged into a wall charger? If it turns on using the wall charger it might need a charge over night. If the camera will still not turn on after a charge the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

My ds lite wont turn on. When I switch it on, The screens flash and it turns off again! It still charges, What ddo I do. I dont want to buy a new one!


Try removing the battery and putting it back in. Let it charge fully until the charge indicator goes away and then try again. If you are still having issues, it sounds like the device has become corrupted.

What does MSDC mean everytime I plug the camera into my laptop that comes up on the screen?


Hi,

The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.

Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.


Regards.

Turned the camera on but screen display says MSDC and can turn not camera off


Make sure the battery is inserted correctly. We spent 5 hours complaining about the camera we bought for our daughter because we couldn't get rid of the MSDC message. We had put the battery back in it upside-down after inserting the memory card; she is the one who discovered our mistake.
