SOURCE: Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer

Either the heater element is breaking or is loose and getting only 110V instead of 240V.  First I would check the wall outlet with a voltmeter for 240V between Line1 and Line2.  Also check the connections and continuity for the heater element.

PC Tools- How to clean your computer

  • Cleaning the Computer
If you've noticed that your computer's keyboard feels sticky or the monitor screen appears spotted under the light, it's time to clean these pieces before internal damage occurs. Cleaning your computer's keyboard does not require special knowledge or skill. But you should take precautions to avoid damaging the internal parts when caring for the external hardware.mike_alozie_0.gif

1. Unplug the computer and all accessories before getting started. Anytime you attempt to clean an electric appliance it is important to disconnect the power source to reduce the risk of electrocution or shock. After unplugging the keyboard and monitor, along with any accessories that may be plugged in, use a damp clean cloth to wipe all the cords that are connected to the monitor and keyboard and remove dust balls or hair, along with anything else that might cling to them.

2. Move the computer monitor and keypad to one side of the desk and wipe the area clean where the equipment usually sits. Be sure to wipe a large parameter around the monitor area and let it air dry completely before returning the keypad to that area. You might want to use a clean towel or dry cloth to rub over the desk to be certain it is dry, as dampness can damage the machinery or cause it to stick to the table's surface.

3. Rinse the damp cloth in clear hot water and wring it nearly dry. Gently wipe the monitor screen, including all the corners, to remove dust and spots. Then wipe the surrounding areas and framework of the monitor, including the indicator lights that show when the system is operating. Don't forget the back of the monitor as well. If you have a laptop computer with a top that folds down and closes, wipe the hinges carefully, using a cotton swab for grooves and the latch. Check the latch to see if it is sticky or closes readily.

4. Next, go over the keyboard with the cloth, lightly rubbing around each key and button. Wipe around the sides of the keyboard, catching the off and on switch and CD player. Then use a cotton swab to ease around the edges of each key and row to retrieve minute amounts of dust and crumbs. Carefully clean around the lights, plug openings, and speakers, as well as other areas of your computer. Check to be sure you are not leaving wet traces on the equipment, as this means your cloth is too damp and should be wrung out more.

5. Allow the machinery to air dry, or use a soft cloth to pat the keyboard and monitor dry. Don't use fabric with lint or that is tough enough to scratch the screen. Reassemble all the cords and parts when you are sure the entire unit is clean and dry.

Plan to clean the keyboard and monitor every month or two. You may want to schedule maintenance for an interior cleaning once or twice a year. A clean computer is more likely to work well and last longer.

How to clean a toshiba tz50v51 screen

DO NOT USE under any circumstances a chemical cleaner on the panel. This will damage the screen. If you have finger prints on the screen, use a damp, and wring it out good, non abrasive cloth. Then slightly use pressure just enough to remove the fingerprints. Then dry with a non abrasive cloth using very little pressure.

When the printer prints out a typed document there's black lines in the background that are pretty dark wherever there is typing. I don't know what is wrong

You most likely have some build up dirt on the bottom of the print head. If you can take the print head out do so and clean the bottom with a damp cloth. If you can't get it out take a damp cloth and get the print head to the middle of it's run and unplug printer then get the damp cloth under the print and do a side to side motion to clean the bottom of the print head.

My second row of keys on the keyboard will not work; ii typing with the on screen keyboard and the keys asdfjkl;' and Enter keys are not working. i did not drop or spill anything they all just stopped...

The issue could be with many cause. In order to isolate this issue I request you to perform the below steps :

====================CLEANING KEYBOARD============

To get started, find a soft, lint-free cloth and some window cleaner like Windex. Turn laptop upside down and give it a gentle shake. This will clear out dust and debris that has fallen in between the keys. If your vacuum has a soft brush attachment, you can vacuum the keyboard gently, too.

Now, spray a tiny bit of Windex on your cloth. You do not want it wet, just barely damp.

Gently scrub all the areas around the keys of your keyboard. Watch for an excess fluid squeezing out of your cloth. Should this happen, dab it up quickly.

Once the housing for the keys is cleaned, focus on cleaning the keys themselves. Gently stroke the keys with the barely damp cloth, repeating strokes until each key is cleaned.

Badly soiled keys can be (try and if are not difficult to pull them out do not attempt) pried off the board, cleaned and snapped back into place.

You can clean crevices by wrapping your cloth over a table knife and carefully and gently running it between keys. Do not push down into the mechanisms below the keys, though.

Once you have cleaned the keyboard to your satisfaction, let it set to dry for half an hour, just in case it is damp.

Also note that office supply stores sell cans of air. It's not just air; it's air that comes out of the can with enough pressure to push dust out of places it shouldn't be. The cans come with little straw-like tubes that you can attach to the sprayer so that you can get inside your removable drives and between the keys of your keyboard.

*** Uninstall and reinstall Device drivers from Device Manager ***

1. Click Start, type Device Manager in search field.
2. Click on Device Manager.
3. Click "+" beside Keyboards Device Category.
4. Right-click the listed Keyboard and select Uninstall.
5. Restart the system.

Windows will redetect the device on restart and reinstalls the drivers automatically.

Samsung LCD screen cleaning technique

Hard crusties? what do you do to have this type of matter on the screen?

Be carful with what you use on the screen, a damp cloth is permissable. This does not mean spraying liquid directly on the screen and wiping it

Spray into the cloth or dampen cloth and wring out well. Do not let any excess water drip down the screen especially if it gets into the TV via the outer frame around the screen.otherwise poof it will never work again

You can buy specialist screen cleaning wipes (but I don't know if you can get them in Kuwait), otherwise a damp cloth should do the trick just fine.

Avoid using everyday cleaning chemicals or anything abrasive.
