You need to reset the AC adapter (I'll explain below)

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

How do I change the Waste Ink collector on a Pixma MP170?


Cleaning or changing the pad is a messy project. This ink pad reset will reset the printer ink use conter to new status and your pad full message will be gone. This is a common occurance with Canon printers and the fix causes no harm. I reset my own MP470 about two years ago without incident.

This reset has been sucessful on many MP150 and simular units and should work on your MP170.
The second works on models with different control pads simular to theMP470.

printer powered off but connected on power source , you must:
1. Press & hold stop/reset button, and then press & hold [ON/OFF] button.
2. When Green power lit, leave stop/reset button & press twice stop/reset (see orange indicator).
3. Leave On/Off button. Printer in actually service mode.
4. Press stop/reset 4 times (see orange indicator) if not blink restart above process from top.
5. After press stop/reset 4 times successful press On/Off button 3 times. printer will off.
6. Press On/Off button.


---------------------

Waste ink full reset


These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

I have the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router and when i plug it into my modem, no lights come on, besides the power light which was already lit. I've tried resetting it (holding the reset button for 30...


There is another way to reset the router called hard reset..

you need to hold down the reset button for 45 seconds while its turned ON and don't let it go.
After first 15 seconds, take the power cable out but still keep holding down the reset.
After second 15 seconds, insert the power cable back in but still keep holding down reset.
After last 15 seconds, release reset and turn off the router for 30 seconds.

0-15 = Power ON, Reset button Pressed in
15-30= Power OFF, Reset still Pressed in
30-45= Power ON, Reset still Pressed in

If it still doesn't work then you got a bad router, can't be fixed. :-(

Hi, this fix worked for me (i've been wasting few hours on mp150 the first time, so if it soesn't work at the first attempt, don't give up and try at least few more times)
  1. Power off the printer
  2. Hold the stop/reset button then press and hold power (for 5 secs)
  3. Hold Power and release the stop/reset button
  4. Press the stop/reset button twice
  5. Relase power button
  6. Wait until the power button lights a steady/still green, press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press.
  7. On the 3rd press the inicator should be orange.
  8. Press the power button to set data
  9. To set data remove cartridges then replace
  10. leave for 20 or 30 secs
  11. Press the power button again to shut down
  12. Then press power button to power up.
  13. The printer will feed one piece of paper through then set language and counrty.
Then ink should be reset.
Good luck, Peter

Polaroid tda-03211c hdtv.i hooked up to use as


Since the tv is not turning on try unplugging it from the wall outlet for a few minutes. Up to 10 or 15 and see if the set will reset on it's own. If that does not work press the power button and when the front light comes on press and hold power button for about 10 seconds to see if it will reset this way. Maybe this work.

Power switch notworking ( ASUS P4PE-X Motherboard)


Please refer your motherboard manual and fix the front panel cable including power button. After this if power button is not working than swap the power button cable and reset button cable.

And then start your PC by pressing the reset button.

Else you just recheck all the cable + RAM + CPU.

Mitsubishi WS73713 - Now working - Timer light flashing.


My Mitsubishi WS-73713 had the same blinking green timer light problem and would not turn on. I tried the reset button and unplugging power to no avail. I found that by simultaneously holding down the remote control "power" button and "volume" button for about 30 seconds the blinking light would go out and a solid green light would come on. Even though the solid green light came on the unit would still not power up. After doing this several times however the unit did finally power up in a normal mode and appears to be working again. It's worth trying before calling in for an expensive repair. PS - From here on out I'm sticking with SONY or Toshiba sets which have given be great service.
