If it under warranty please take it to the vendor from where you purchased. Else you need to do by urself.

Open the back cover and search for RAM chips(its about the size of a finger be carefull while remove and do not force while putting it back.). Remove it and try to turn ON the machine. If it makes sound turn it OFF. Put the chips pack to the same place and again try to turn it ON.

I have a tx-p42x50b when I turned it on nothing no green or red just dead

In fact the TV is Dead. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case, as work with Plasmas are very skilled one. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

Dead battery on 2000 clk 320 , after checking oil and plugs . first attempt to start click'd but did not turn over. Next i turned the ignition all the way off then on, it started. Next day, dead.

Well, first, the battery is not dead. You could have a poor electrical connection somewhere between the battery, starter, ignition switch, or another component of your start circuit, or possibly a failing starter solenoid, or ignition switch. Some electrical testing will be necessary to find the problem. A quick check the next time it won't crank over, is to pull the starter solenoid wire off and check for power on the wire when key is held in crank position. If power then, probably a failing starter solenoid. If no power there, then you have to diagnose the start circuit back through the ignition switch to the battery. Are all your battery and ground connections clean and tight? Starter connections? Use process of elimination, use care, and you'll find the problem.

I dropped my phone in water... And it won't turn

It's an electronic device so it would be very difficult if it'll fell in water. first remove its shell and then get a hair dryer and turn it to low. carefully blow dry the insides of your phone. if you are using an iphone it would be best to consult a phone tech.

My product key for microsoft home and student 2007 doesnt work its the one i got with my laptop its C3YMV-X6YXW-92B89-2XV3Q-KBDXB and i dont know what to do

Unfortunately, you'll have to contact Microsoft if the key is no longer working. There is a limited numbers of attempts inwhich it can be installed and may need to be reset, that said you'll probably need a new key all together since it's now posted to the Internet. Hopefully, you just entered the key incorrectly. If you have a PC with a working copy of Office. Try installing Belarc Advisor or Everest both are free programs that will show you the product codes for software on your computer.

I need to know how to reset my motorola q alltel phone. i wont power on.

Your phone's battery may be dead, or broken. Try removing the battery and leaving the charger plugged in when you turn the phone on. If the phone turns on, you'll need to buy a new battery. Alternatively, your charger could be broken, and not charging the phone.

you should check the voltage on your batttery when the car is running. If it reads about 13.5 to 14 volts, your alternator is doing it's job. If it's less, replace the alternator. If the alternator is ok, you have a power drain somewhere, you will need a proffesional to look at it.

G7 just dead. can't turn on power. check battery

These G7 powershot cameras sometimes get a short from a loose screw which often leaves the camera with no power. You'll want to have it fixed but with a place that knows of the problem and does the correction inside the camera so that it doesn't keep happening. The place that just does powershots and they do amazing work on these cameras is: They charge about half of what canon wants to fix this problem and the include the service and the correction to the screws inside so it won't keep happening. It's $89 for everything with them, a great deal and they do superb work on these cameras.

My wife left her 4gb zune out on picnic table over night and it rained lightly that night. she turned it on and it worked fine for several days until battery went dead, now she can`t get it to charge

I would leave it a bowl of DRY rice for 24 hours to remove any remaining moisture. (I've used this on phones and iPods) Then attempt to charge the zune. If it does not turn right on, I would recommend leaving it connected to power for at least an hour before attempting to power it on again. It may be though that the remaining moisture already did its damage. I sure do hope not. Good luck :)
