If you have a multimeter, check the power module and verify that it is producing the listed voltage, if yes, then try to use this module on another appliance in your home. If a "load" fails the device, you have your answer, if not, then you need to looak at having the actual game unit repaired by a qualified person. Most likely, if the unit is out of warranty, you are better off just replacing it. The cost of an actual depot level repair will be excessive.

I cant get in my phone it says to sign in to google and it will unlock but i dont know my email or password


you may have to hard reset the phone to start the whole system over.
dependoing on what kind of phone you have.

1.) hold the volume down button down.
2.) hold in the power button at the same time
this should take about 30-45 seconds to reset.

if you don't have a power/lock button
1.) hold down the down volume button
2.) hold in the home button.
3.) then hold the power button down
do this all at the same time with all three buttons.
should take about 30-45 seconds to fuly reset

System runs from about 3 to 15 secs then shuts down. That doesn't give me enough time to do anything in the BIOS setup when pressing F2. Then the system refuses to start (by pressing the power button)...


Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged. The computer should stay on even without an operating system or hard drive installed.

Evaporator coils ice up after a few days and the refrigerator comparment only stops cooling. The unit is 2 years old. When removing the backing from the inside of the fridge and after thawing out the coil...


I have some information on your model and that would involve forced defrost by the service manual page 28 at bottom. How old is your Samsung? Forced Operation Function (Pull-down / Refrigerator Defrost / Refrigerator . Freezer-Defrost / Cancellation)
● This function enables a pull-down mode, a defrost mode for the refrigerator only, a defrost mode for the freezer and the
refrigerator at the same time, and a cancellation of this function.
● Press Power Freeze and Fridge Temp. buttons for 8 seconds simultaneously to get in the ready mode for a forced
operation.
● The display panel will return to normal after 20 seconds in the ready mode.
● At the ready mode, press any button(except Ice Type and Child Lock) once to start a pull-down operation, twice for a
defrost cycle for the refrigerator, three times for a defrost cycle for the freezer and the refrigerator, and finally four times
for cancellation of this function.
● Another way to cancel this function is to simply plug out and in the power cord.
1) Pull-down
1-1) At the ready mode, press any button once then the buzzer will beep (ON for 1/2 second and OFF for 1/2 second)
until this mode is cancelled.
1-2) At this pull-down mode, the compressor will start immediately (No 5 minute delay) and if the system is in the
defrost cycle, it will be cancelled right away.
note) If this pull-down mode begins right after the compressor was off, the compressor may not start to run due to an
overload condition.
1-3) At this mode, the compressor and freezer fan will operate continuously for 24 hours and the refrigerator fan will be
on and off according to the set temperature(34℉)
1-4) After 24 hour operation, the system will be cycled at -14℉ for the freezer and 34℉ for the refrigerator.
1-5) In order to cancel this mode at any time, select the next mode on the ready mode or power off the system.
2) Refrigerator Defrost / Refrigerator . Freezer-Defrost operation
2-1) At the pull-down mode, press any button again on the ready mode to begin the defrost cycle for the refrigerator.
2-2) The beep sound continues for 3 second at the beginning, then ON for 3/4 seconds and OFF for 1/4 second until
this mode cease.
2-3) After this operation, the system will come back to normal operation.
2-4) At this mode, press any button again on the ready mode to operate the defrost cycles for both compartments.
2-5) The beep sound continues for 3 seconds at that time, then ON for 1/4 second and OFF for 3/4 seconds until the
defrost operation cease.
3) Cancellation
3-1) At the R,F-Defrost mode, press ant button again on the ready mode to return to a normal operation.
3-2) Simply unplug the power cord, then plug it again to return to a normal operation.
Press both button for 8seconds at the same time Send maual in one moment, Thanks, Sea Breeze
