Dropped my camcorder

Today my brother's camcorder hit the floor!  I actually tripped over the cord while it was plugged in.  Didn't seem to hit hard.  Was blurry and then went to nothing.  Can't get into menu, can't take tape out?  Any ideas??  Thanks!  My brother is getting married this weekend! We were going to tape the wedding!!

I have a GRD63EK and I did the same thing to it yesterday. I believe mine worked until picking it up twisted the firewire, bending it down.

I am not sure of this as it all happened at once

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Toshiba SAT A505-S6005 Power cord was plugged when laptop fell to the floor and hit where the cord attaches to the receptical (on computer) which jammed (pushed) the thin connector prong further into


When this happens it means that the whole recepticle has been broken off of the motherboard and the whole laptop will have to be disassembled. This is not an easy job for someone who hasn't done one before. After it's disassembled it has to be determined if the recepticle can be resoldered or not. Sometimes the damage is not repairable. Good luck!

I have a intex model 603 filter pump that keeps tripping the reset on the plug... it seems that when i first hit reset it will work for a few mins but then trip.. i can hit reset again and it will work...


Have you tried running an extra duty extension cord to another plug, not in that circuit?? Your GFCI may be bad?? Pump drawing too many amps and the breaker not rated for those amps.. Bad pump??

I would try another plug first and work from there...

Hi, my Frigidaire AC (FAA068P7A) unit was working fine last year. Put it back in the window today and now it won't power on. I checked the power cord, but cord is fine (I actually opened up the machine...


Sounds like a breaker has tripped (caused by the unit) or is it might just be 'off' for some reason. I would check the outlet (where the AC plugs in at).

If the AC is a 110V unit you can check the outlet by plugging in something else, i.e. a hairdryer. If the hairdryer doesn't work either - then you know your breaker is tripped. On the other hand if the hairdryer 'works' then you know the problem is in the unit, where I'm afraid you'd be better off to have a technician to trouble-shoot it, although you could try sending additional information at this point for more help.

Remember if it is a breaker tripped - it was probably tripped by a malfunctioning Air Conditioner so if it 'trips' again in the immediate future you will need someone to check it out.

good luck!

No power getting to my Lakewood fan...


Maybe you tripped over it so hard you de soldered the wires form the inside. Have you openned it? Try it out if you didn't. Check the power cord and follow it all the way into the motor (with the motor openned). Check if one or both cables on the inside are desoldered.
