Usually with Dells it could be the power button, however base on my own experience 99 percent of the time its the powers supply.If you have a atx power supply handy try it .It will not fit in the case as dell make their power supply different from others.If you all your hardware spin up then that answers your question.

I have a 55 Panasonic LED LCD- MODEL NO. TC-55AS680U - TV Turns on for 5 min., then shuts off and the red stand by light blinks continuously.


No guarantees, but first unplug the unit (when it is on), wait 15 or so minutes, plug it back in and see if this recycling move will fix it. Also, check to make sure you haven't inadvertently set some kind of timer. Good luck . . .

When tv is unpluged and pluged back in it wont power on and no lights blinck


Sure the plug is getting power from wall outlet? If power is there you might want to check out the power supply board first for issues.

My Belkin F6C1500-TW-RK UPS DOES NOT LIGHT UP (PWR ON) WHEN PLUGED IN, USING NEW BATTERIES.


I returned from a trip to find my F6C1000W-TWRK and all devices powered off with no lights. Tried to reset the AC breaker on the back but it wasn't tripped. I confirmed good mains power then tried to power it on by holding the main power button but no action. removed the batteries (2x 7AHr 12V sealed Pb-acid) and confirmed one was 0V and the other around 2V. I attempted to charge each indpednatly on a Jusni iCharger but both wouldn't take a charge.

As this seemed suspicious that both batteries would fail simultaneously, I took the unit apart and found the two 40A on-board fuses for the DC lead intact. Then on inspecting more, there was a distinct brown discoloration around the large aluminum heatsink with "IG0" component mounted under it (and presumably "IG1" but I didn't dismantle further).

Bottomline is it appears this component can eventually overheat (likely due to an electrolytic going bad and stressing it beyond it's thermal limits until it finally fails).

I haven't attempted repair as new quality batteries are approx $60 shipped so I am going to buy an all new unit.

If anyone attempts repair for this failure mode, please post back your experience.

Thanks !

Water (not ice) tastes bad in our <3 yr old side by side Whirlpool frig. We've replaced filter, no change. After we empty about 3-4 cupfuls of water, then it tastes okay again.


Look behind the crisper in the fridge and see if it's molded inside the water reservoir. If it is you may be able to put some bleach in it to kill the mold and then run lots of water thru it to clean it out.

Just no power. outlet is ok! reset button does nothing to help


Hi,


Might be some problem with adapter. verify output voltage of the adapter with multimeter. If no output then replace your adapter.

Dead unit


My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00

Next best guess is the larger filter capacitors in the power supply are bad and shorted out, you can check with an ohm meter across capacitor leads (with power unplugged)
