Part Number There are literally millions if not billions of different part numbers used by companies today. Because of the vast quantity of part numbers and the frequency of those numbers getting changed or referenced to other numbers, Computer Hope is unable to offer its customers with third-party part numbers.
If you are looking for a part number we recommend that you contact the computer company or the company responsible for supporting your product. You can find a listing of companies and their contact information on our company listing.
If the company responsible for your product is no longer in business we recommend the below.

  • If you do not have any numbers, but have the product or part you wish to replace, ensure that no numbers are listed on that part. If a number or name of company is listed on the product see the next section. However, if no number can be located we recommend you take the product to a local service center, repair shop, or the place of purchase for additional assistance.
  • If you are able to locate a number, attempt to search the Internet with a large search engine for that number. If you are unable to locate that number we recommend you take the product to a local service center, repair shop, or the place of purchase for additional assistance.
  • If you are only able to locate the name of the company who made the product, attempt to contact that company directly to see if they can provide you with a replacement. See our company listing for contact information.

Manual Because of copyright laws and the inability to have all manuals for all products, Computer Hope is unable to send or make copies of any manuals.
Many companies will provide a lot of their documentation in electronic format through their website. If you want an online version of a manual or instructions that you can print we suggest you visit the manufacturer of your product web page.
If you would like a hard copy of a manual or would like to locate a manual for your product, we recommend you contact the company responsible for your product and/or the company you purchased your product through. A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.

A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Refund Information Computer Hope is not associated with any third-party product nor does it sell any third-party products; we are unable to handle any request for refunds of a product or provide anyone with additional information about a refund.

A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Serial Numbers Unfortunately, with the billions of different serial numbers and manufacturer numbers, we are unable to provide support and/or information on a product by its serial number. If you are looking for additional information about a product by its identification number, we highly recommend you contact the manufacturer of the product or look for information about the product on Computer Hope by searching by the manufacturer or type of device name. For example, instead of searching for "Serial Number 12345" it may be easier to search for "Maxtor hard drive".
If you are looking for a serial number for a particular software program you will need to contact the software developer or producer of the software program; Computer Hope will not provide any type of serial numbers or other registration numbers to any users. See our underground section for additional information to why Computer Hope does not provide this information.
Finally, a serial number for a hardware device such as a computer or printer can almost always be found on the bottom or back of the device. If you're trying to find the serial number for one of these devices try physically examining the device. If you're still having issues locating it the contact the manufacturer of the product for additional assistance.
Billing Information The Computer Hope web page and its service is a 100% free service and therefore does not bill any of its users. If you have questions regarding billing or changing the type of billing for a service it is recommended you contact the company you are using or have purchased a product through.
Missing or lost CD, disk, or install file If you've lost one or more of your installation CD's or diskettes you must contact the developer of that program to obtain a new copy. Computer Hope cannot send anyone copies of the disks or downloadable files over the Internet of the program regardless if you have purchased the program.

2009 Yamaha Raider engine oil drain plugs stripped

Hi, Poe66, I feel your pain, if the drain plug bolts are stripped then just buy new ones. If the threads in the engine case, where the bolts go, are stripped then you need Helicoils installed by a professional technician. If the drain plugs face straight down and you brought your bike to my shop I would charge you $75 for 2 Helicoil steel thread inserts installed. I believe someone makes an oversize tapered self-tapping drain bolt that may be a cheaper way to go if you are a little low on "DRACHMA"

My printer won't allow me to print or scan anything i don't know what the problem is but it always shows me hardware error 0502

Hello, The item causing your printer to display the Hardware error #0502 is called an encoder strip which is a small long plastic strip with black hash marks on it going along the length of the printer just above the print heads. This strip is used by the machine to count from beginning to the end (home) and know where the print heads are located at all times. With out this strip it only knows where the beginning is. You will need to locate this strip is and re-attach it via a clip or hook on both ends. If you take it out it would be a wise move to wash the strip gently with just warm water to clean off any ink that may be on it. Just reattach it making sure the strip goes through the print head properly.
Good Luck! Rich L.

I have an LG RH7500 DVD Recorder. It says 'Please Wait' constantly and it doesn't do anything else.

I have a RH1858 DVD Recorder (same as the RH1777) that also started giving this same message "PLEASE WAIT" - now I'm fortunate that I work with a lot of electronic boards and have found in the past that a lot of Laptops fail for no reason at all...................

The ONLY reason I could assume that the DVD unit has failed (LG says the Mainboard's bust and needs replacement) is heat

Somehow lack of airflow or cooling could affect the SMC (Surface Mounted Components) and the solder joints can become brittle, which then causes de-lamination...... hence the problem.

Stripped the machine open and started pressing on various IC's on the controller board (right side of the machine where the HDD and DVD connects to) - each one on it's own while applying power to the unit............ after about 10min's I hit the right component and the machine initialised. Pressure on the components and PCB allowed the unit to work 100% - release the pressure and voila the unit stops working!

Stripped the board out and used a "heat-blower" used for SMC's... and basically re-flowed all the components and solder connections on the PCB.

Re-installed the board and machine now works 100%!

All you need is to get someone that has a bit of experience and knows how to re-flow the board with heated air - DO NOT USE a normal soldering iron...!

Hope this info helped!

Intertherm moble home furnace My heat strips came on one night while my a/c was running. We awoke to 101* temps. I removed the orange...

Sounds like a bad sequencer (the thing you unplugged the wire from probalbly). It will have 24vac supplied to the heating element in the sequencer and most likely 240vac being passed by the sequencer to the heat strips. This parts are not very expensive and can be purchased at a heating and air supply or a mobile home supply company. You can turn off the power and use an ohmmeter to figure out which one is bad. There may be only one or there may be 2 or 3. Let me know what you find.

I need a service manual Electrolux 6500

I don't have a service manual but maybe I can give you some instructions that will make some sense. Open the front of the canister and remove the bag. As you are looking at the front of the unit, there are two vinyl covered strips that run the length of the unit. Pull forward on these strips and then pull out so that the vinyl separates from the plastic underneath. Now grab the plastic strip with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull towards the front of the canister. These can be tough if the machine has never been opened up before, but pull as hard as you need to, to slide the strip out. Once both strips are out, turn the machine over, pull out on the sides of the bottom of the unit, and lift up. The bottom should come of relatively easily, and everything will be exposed. The control valve rests under the bag housing, since the machine is now upside down. I hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Intertherm air conditioner split unit

you need to know if the heat strips are energized by a contactor or relay as opposed to a heat sequencer. as a general rule the contactor or relay clicks shut as soon as a call for heat is made and the fan is energized by the stat at the same time . instant heat strips and instant fan. if the heat strips have a sequencer it may take up to 90 seconds or so before the sequencer heats up then clicks and puts power to the strips and the fan motor at the same time. the high voltage usually feeds from the strip side of the sequencer through the normally closed side of the fan relay. if you changed the stat and didn't switch the fan setting switch to elec, the fan will not be energized by the stat. if it is in the gas position, you have told it that the sequencer is bringing on the fan and of course it won' t if you don't have a sequencer.. this is tough stuff to trace even for an experienced pro cause its interconnected so dual fan speeds can't be energized at the same time. most likely you have a new digital stat that was not programmed correctly to bring fan on in heat. good luck

No heat

need to know if its a heat pump or electric strip heat. if its a heat pump then compressor and outdoor fan will run on call for heat. being an intertherm and most of them are electric strips, i'll guess. the call for heat sends 24 volts to the heat sequencer. lots of wires connected to what is called a stack switch. wires closest to the mounting plate are 24 volts and when energized they heat up a bimetal disc that clicks on in 90 to 160 second s and energizes the first strip and fan and a few seconds later the 2nd and 3rd strips kick in. for every strip operating you pull about 20 amps. if fan is working then the other parts of the sequencer are failing to close and put power to the strips or the strips themselves are bad. these are very very confusing and tricky to work with. i have to work on them hot to observe where the problem lies. very dangerous as you are going to have to trip a 90 amp breaker if you make a mistake , not to mention the parts are not available except through wholesale only supply house. i feel pretty confident the sequencer is going to be bad and i think its probably best you call a pro to get this one squared away. sometimes when you are tinkering with old sequencers they literally crumble apart in front of you, they can get that brittle. it can be quite an adventure and not for the faint of heart when its hot. good luck.

Hey All

This error relates to the encoder strip for the carriage motor. The encoder strip is like a piece of graph paper and the head has an eye that reads how many lines it passes. This is so the machine know exactly where the head is at any point.

The error means that the machine is not correctly reading the encoder impulses. This could be because the encoder has broken, the eye has gone blind or a circuit board or cable has become faulty. It could be that if you have done maintenance that one of the connectors has been replaced with incorrect polarity.

Check the basics first:
  • Is the encoder attached and correctly routed through the optical sensor
  • Is the encoder strip clean - if there is a splodge on it, this will result in error
  • If you have done maintenance, check all the connections you made are good
If you need further help with this, there a good section in the service manual that gives a sequence of areas to test to pin down the fault. Get a manual from
