I would remove the keyboard from the laptop, clean the keyboard and the flex cable that goes to the computer, make sure its clean and reconnect it, then try it again.

To remove a keyboard it varies from laptop to laptop, take it to a local professional if you can't figure it out, it involves unscrewing 2-6 screws and possibly removing the plastic keyboard cover from the top of the keyboard which is between the display.

Ford lock cylinder replacement

From another Ford owners experiences

If you have the key your golden, if not then your in my boat, from what I've done and read remove the steering wheel first, two Phillips screws hold the center section of the wheel, once you've taken the cover off,move the wires in the way remove the bolt in the center, its 15/16" there may be a wire in one of the holes right next to the center bolt, depress it and then get the infamous steering wheel puller. screw in the bolts and pull the wheel, put that to the side, onve you get that there will be a few more Phillips screws holding yet more stuff in place, remove them, there will be enough slack in the wires you can pull them to the left and down, out of your way, if you have the key turn it on, but don't start the vehicle, you will notice there is a little pin on the inside of the column underneath the lock cylinder itself, depress this and jiggle the key, the lock should pop out.
I however do not have the key, I attempted to drill the pin out, no go, so I started to drill the ignition out where the key goes, that seems to work so far, but it got cold outside so I came in to see if there was an easier way, so far no luck, I hope yours goes better

F02 error code whirlpool washer. Already replaced drain pump and cleared hoses. Problem (code) still occurs. Do I need to reset something?

Considering what you've already tried, I'd suggest it is an error with the check ball in the tub to pump bellows.
Try this link, (you made need to copy & paste to your navigation/tool bar)
omit the talk of detergent and pump cleaning since you've done that and instead focus on the check ball device that commonly gets stuck and initiates an F2/ F21 error on these washers.
For an abbreviated version, check out an earlier solution I posted here on Fixya a while ago...

I don't participate here much nowadays, too busy. In fact you'll find many the same problems & solutions under my profile.

Good luck.

I try to put videos on it but it dont show up when i turn it on

Hi. In order to put videos on the Samsung T9 player, you need to use the included software (Samsung Media Studio 5) to convert the video to the .svi format that the player recognizes. You didn't say if you'd used that software or not, so I can't be more specific about a solution until you let me know exactly what you've tried so far. If you don't have the software, it or it's follow-on should be available on the Samsung support website. Just use that to convert it and then put it into the Video folder in your player (drag and drop). I've loaded videos as large as 50 minutes on mine and it worked just fine. Good luck!

Function keys don't work anymore

I would first reinstall any software/drivers that came with the device. You should also try contacting Logitech Technical Support (+1 646-454-3200). I've dealt with them recently and they were very helpful, even going so far as to replace my device completely at no charge when the support rep could not fix the issue I had.

Victim of software counterfeiting

I am glad to HELP YOU!

So - if I got it right - you've bought the installation disk and you didn't pass the validation on the manufacturer's website or so... Or you don't have the right product key to fully install it...
You're not the only one in such a situation.
Unfortunately there's no other solution but to go to a certified store/online store and to buy THE REAL SOFTWARE. For the version [counterfeited...!] that you've bought nobody will be able to get you the right key. Even if you will report the situation to the manufacturer...!

Try to return the CD/DVD to the seller and if you paid for it ask for a full reimbursement.

My back hatch won't open, but my door locks still work also my lighter quit working. Any suggestions or solutions?

Have you taken the little red nozzle that comes with WD-40 and stuck it as far in the key slots as far as you can & soak it good? Spray all around buttons too, trying to get it to work in behind it.

1934 installation problem

I have no magic solutions for this problem, and I?m guessing you?ve already tried what I?m going to suggest, but if not maybe you should try that: 1. are you using a laptop? The card you?re using might be a Cardbus, which usually isn?t supported by laptops because of BIOS settings. 2. It might also be a driver problem. Disconnect the card, remove it, remove the drivers. Restart the computer and reinstall the drivers. Turn the computer off. Reconnect the card and only then turn the computer on again. Wait a few minutes (sometimes it takes a few minutes for the computer to recognize new software). I don?t know if it would work, but it?s worth giving a shot.
