Whirlpool dryer won't turn on can hear


The switch you speak of is a mechanical switch with electrical contacts. If the spring inside gets rusty, it doesn't turn properly....replace it!

Won;t power up at all. New batteries but I did not replace back up battery. should I? Tried the contrast fix. Son said he dropped it and it got kicked down hall at school. One year old. Any hope?


Hello,

If new batteries did not solve the problem, the next thing to check would be the battery terminal.

If the battery terminal is rusty, the battery power won't contact and the calculator won't turn on. So, use a flat small screw drive to scratch the battery terminal so that there would be contact.

If the above is not the problem, the next to check would be the wire connecting the battery terminal to the the calculator's main board. There is a wire between the battery terminal and the calculator board. When the battery is inserted, the power from the battery goes from the terminal to the board through this wire. There is a possibility that this wire is cut in-between or is loosing contact. In this case, you need to get a small screw driver and carefully disassemble the calculator in order to check the wire.

If the wire is intact, use a light brush to brush the calculator board as there might be dust on the board.

If non of the above helps, then it means the calculator is dead and needs a replacement.

Regards.

Won't switch on. Was working fine; battery running low so removed it to recharge as I have done many times before. On reinstalling battery the camera is completely dead.



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Bought a used John Deere lawn tractor. Used it 3 times and today it won't start. Checked battery and date Oct. 2008. Bought and installed new battery. Insert key, step on clutch and "nothing"...


hi,
one of the safety switches probably came out of alignment, probably the safety switch at the pto blade control. its an electric switch up under the frame usually. there are a few of these switches on riding mowers and just one of them will stop it. check your seat switch to make sure its functioning. a word of advice. these switches are backwards of what you would think they would be, meaning when the switch contacts are apart, it will start and when they are closed or together it wont. if switch seems to be working unplug the electrical connector off the ignition switch from the rear and see if its rusty, plug it back in. check your battery connections for rust, check all your contacts for rust and sand them down.

Battery went dead 1998 lumina now radio and lighter won't work


90 % chances you also have a shorted alternator it kills the battery.

ALIENWARE DESKTOP LOST ALL POWER


In a laptop, you can lose power in three ways.
1. Dead battery 2. Dead Power cord. 3. Bad motherboard.
ther first two should be rather obvious, as the battery won't work or it won't hold a charge, but if it won't turn on at all, even while plugged in, chances are that you're going to need a new motheboard. This can be expensive in the M--x laptops, unfortunately.
Sorry for the bad news, mate.

Olympus 770 SW waterproof etc camera doesnt work - battery appears to charge but camera does not turn on or get any charge out of the battery - did get water in it about 7 months ago screen was stuffed but...


Water contains impurities and bits of chemicals that, over time, corrode surfaces, especially metallic parts. It's highly likely that your battery contacts, on the battery itself or inside the camera, are corroded and not conducting as they should, when they're clean. Clean them with a damp cloth, and try your battery again. If that doesn't work, your power switch could be contaminated. That would consist of taking the camera carefully apart, and gaining access to the copper pads and switch plate to clean them with at least 90% alcohol and a q-tip. Try these things before you give up, chances are something is just not conducting right. In case you have no success and give up, get an estimate before you have it serviced. Oftentimes, the cost of repair exceeds the cost of replacement.
