It is common for the ribbon cable that attaches the battery pack to main circuit board to become loose. Also the battery pack may be dead. I would try new battery and check cables. If problem persists, you may need a software update which can be done by your carrier.

Cell phones get worn out and break from daily use. The Motorola Razr is no exception. While this phone may be durable against minor accidents, it can still stop working without warning. From a blank screen to water in the phone, there are a few simple methods you can use to try and fix your phone before you pay for costly repairs or resort to buying a new cell phoneunable to turn the phone on the only thing that - mag-glass_10x10.gif. Try these tricks to get your phone working again.

  1. tep 1 Check your warranty. If the phone is still under warranty, contact your cell phone provider to get it fixed for free.
  2. Step 2 Turn the phone off. Take the back cover off the phone. Remove the battery and reinsert it. Replace the cover and turn the phone on. Sometimes the phone will begin working again with this simple step.
  3. Step 3 Turn the phone off and back on if the phone will turn on but won't work or has a blank screen.
  4. Step 4 Buy a new battery if the phone won't stay charged. Check that your phone's charger isn't broken or damaged. Make sure the phone says "Charging" when the charger is plugged into the phone.
  5. Step 5 If the phone has been dropped in water, take off the back cover and remove the battery. Dry the phone with a paper towel and a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting. Stop every two to three minutes and let the phone cool down before starting again. Wait three days, then reassemble the phone and try to turn it on

Insignia? 37 720p Flat Panel LCD HDTV will not

Power-cycle the unit (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). If you're unable to power the unit on successfully, the TV probably requires repairs. In home service can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

I guess this is not an intermittent issue though right? Kindly do these process/procedure if things able to work.
1. Remove the Optical Drive.
2. Remove the Hard Drive.
3. Remove all memories (RAM).
After removing those devices try to turn on the laptop eventhough it produces beeping noises and stay in the BIOS screen. Have to observe if it restarts again or shuts down on its own. If the scenario appears that it is still shuts down after 5 seconds then, motherboard is not working properly. Actually there would be more troubleshooting steps for this to isolate the issue. If you can able to follow some of the steps then my piece of advice is to call Dell technical support for some assistance by removing some of FRU devices. Things are more likely critical. If you're unable to do the thing then have then replace the laptop in this regard if it is still under warranty. That's one of a good thing. Hope things will help you to determine. Thank you.

When I turned on TV, sound was ok, but there's a black screen

Same thing happened to me. I turned TV off. Then turned it back on holding down both On button & Source button & got the picture back. Doesn't fix it for good. But when it happens, I "fix" it the same way. Happened twice in last three weeks, I'd say. Better than junking it for now.

It wont turn on

Sounds like water damage but try this......... 1) press the * and # and Power button all at once - if the screen fires up with a black screen and some info - then you can flash the phone and hopefully recover it; 2. If the above works - you need to find a flash file and the software to flash it with Good Luck
