You should have told me you are missing a manual. If you dont follow thing from it correctly, you can really burn your motherboard. from the usb connectors on the motherboard
you see pins like this 1 is set 1 and 2 is set 2. you see those are wrapped in sets from you cable near the end. dont mix them

vcc1 = 1
-d1 = 2

GND1 = 4

SOURCE: Estate dryer TGDS840JQ1 does not heat. I've

Hello Bob,

The cycle thermostat sounds good to me the two wires on the top/bottom should be zero ohms 1.1 is fine the two across from each other are going to be in the range of 6-8k so they as well are fine. What ya need to check is the heat element itself it should be between 10-20 ohms

Whta you to check also is the 2 thermostats where the tube the burner asm. fits to in the rear of the dryer both of the should be zero ohms resistiance (1-5 would be ok) if you find either of them to be open that will be the reason the dryer isnt not heating

But on the gas dryer the most common thing that will make it not heat is going to be the igniter..need to check it not for ohms but when the dryer is running that their is 120 volts to it,if it has 120vac and doesnt come on the igniter is bad

if the igniter does not have 120 volts need to check the flame sensor(black rectangle peice on the side of the burner tube) for zero ohms before checking it be sure the power is disconnected since it if you touch it live it will shock you

if all above checks good either the timer or the motor will cause the dryer to neot heat as well
but i suspect it will either be the igniter of one of the thermostats on the housing in the rear where the burner tube fits into

Good luck,

Sharp Convection Microwave won't heat and turntable won't turn.

I typically find it is not door hinge issues but door switch issues, especially with sharp. You may heve a little movenent in the door hinge and that is allowing the door hook to move up and down on the plunger for a door switch that is probably a bit melted due to bad connections. If you check the door switches and look for any browning around the terminals where the wires push onto the switch you will probably find an overheated connectoion. Replace the bad switch and run better wires and better termninals to the new switch and it will probably be fine.

I have wireless Internet! I have a laptop, I tried to connect to it~ It will connect to the router, but won't connect to the Internet! Help!

How many wired and wireless computers do you have ion the network.
Do you have any wired computer ?
Connect your laptop to the router with the Ethernet cable and try to access Internet. See if the wired connection is working or not.
If the wired connection is working then I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router and the laptop.

My ds screen bottom turns on and works but the top screen goes purple and pink please help !!!!!!!!

Hi the problem you are having is with the thin data ribbon that connects the top screen to the circuit board in the bottom half.

now this then ribbon has several single strand copper wires running through it and every time you open and close the top screen this ribbon bends so as to keep the connection with the circuit board but over time these thin wires become brittle and break and this is what causes the problem you are having.

now this problem is the same with all flip and slide phone and also laptops,netbooks,portable dvd players, they all have this same thin ribbon and over time they will all get this problem.

now the only way to solve this problem is to get the part replaced no as this is such a common fault it makes the part really cheap to buy and its not that expensive to get fixed, its not something you should do yourself as you need special tools to take it apart and to also remove and refit this ribbon.

now i charge about 20 pound for doing this plus parts so it comes to about 25 pound so you need to shop around and try and get the best price you can.

how ever their is no saying it will solve the problem every time due to the fact the same symptons happen when it has been dropped and the top screen has broke if this is the case then it wont be worth getting fixed as the cost of the screen would be more than it would to replace the ds.

i work on the basis that if the problem isnt solved i will only charge for the parts i have used, not many people work like this but i do as it gives people some guarantee that they will only pay if it is working after so shop around and see what prices you can get.

some phone shops repair these so thats the best place to start looking.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Colored lines appearing from bottom to top of the screen.

the LCD is a very complicating device for all CP. you may check it by disassemble it to it's LCD and connect the ribbon wire/flex of the LCD firmly... but this problem is best to replace it with a new LCD... very complicated device indeed

My ds lite won't turn on both fuses are good the top screen was broke so I tried another screen I had that dident work. So I put the old one back on and now the ds wont turn on .The green lite flashes then...


It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.

Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.

Any further problems or questions feel free to message me via my profile page.

The bottom screen flashes on and then turns off

This is a typical top screen fault.
If when you try to power on the top screen flashes. and the system immediately powers of then its the bottom screen fault, and visa versa.

If you are lucky it may be the zif connector connecting the ribbon cable to the motherboard, but its 90% probable that you need to replace the top screen. these are available on ebay. Watch lots of youtube tutorials before attempting this because its quite tricky and easy to damage the new top screen wifi speakers and mic ( connecting the new cable properly is quite difficult the first time.)

Best of luck.

The screen will only display top half......bottom black

Might be the following:

There are some (neon) lights behind the screen glass. If you can see a picture from the top, and on some angle the rest of the picture (in the bottom), that means you don't have a problem with your grapgisc card, driver and display, but a problem with one of the back lights. The lamp is gone or a contact/wire that power the lamp that gives white backlight.
This can not be checked or repaired by yourself. You should find a service.
It should't cost you much, sure not that much as replacement of the LCD Panell.

Check if your warranty period is active.

Turns on and lights up but no images on top screen

The DS top screen has two components, which are the LCD display, and the backlight. If the LCD display has gone bad but the backlight still works and the connecter is seated properly, the DS will still power on and the lower screen will be normal, and the top screen will light, but it won’t display anything.

You didn’t mention if your DS is the original DS or the DS Lite. Replacement top screens for the DS Lite are cheap on eBay, but installing the screen is a bit complex. The screen for the original DS is a different part and they are more expensive and hard to find.

I’ve never worked on an original DS, so I can only tell you about installing the top screen on a DS Lite.

First, the DS Lite has to be just about completely disassembled. You have to completely remove the top and bottom cases, pull out the microphone and wi-fi cables, and release the connecter for the top screen, which is located on the main board in the lower case. You’ll need the tri-wing screwdriver. You can leave the bottom screen/touch screen assembly attached to the main board, but be careful not to pull or tear the flex cables. Check YouTube for videos on disassembling the DS Lite.

Here’s the deal breaker for most people: The speakers are soldered to the flex cable of the top screen. I’ve never seen a replacement sold with speakers. You’ll have to unsolder your speaker wires from the old screen cable and reconnect them to the new one. If you can’t solder, you could take the screens to a local tv/electronics repair shop and pay to have it done. I got this information for you from this appears to be a common problem I hope this helps
