I don't know how much expertienc and the amount of confert you have doing this, but anyways, try taking your motherboard out of your case, and find the front panel headers(usally near the bottom right of the board, find the one labeled as pwswitch (or something similar) and use something to short the two pins,. nothing else while having CPU Powersupply ect,. or if you have a spare power button/case try that as well, if you can't fighure it out, DO NOT TRY IT and contact me and i will see about getting a picture or something

Best of luck,
Mitch
P.S. if this works then don't forget to rate me, if it doesn't work then contact me and i will see about something else(don't rate me until it is fixed or i give up(

Disclaimer: By trying this you herby release me of any liability If anything happend due to user error i assume no resonsability for injury to self, others, home or property. If you do not feel confertable doing it, DON'T, then contact me

Atv repairs


Hi Lee,

The starter requires substantially more current (amps) than the little wires and contacts that make up the start button and starter circuit. These small wires power a solenoid (an electro-magnetic switch) when the start button is pressed; which in turn closes a much larger contact that connects the larger battery wires to the starter motor.

You may have a blown fuse or fusible link, bad starter switch button, bad solenoid, broken wire(s) between the starter button and solenoid, poor connections at any of the terminals on these devices or a bad starter motor. Check the these circuits with a volt meter capable of testing 12 VDC or using a test lamp. Start with the one probe of the meter or lamp connected to a good ground or (-) post of the battery. The other probe should see 12 V (+) power on ONE of the starter button wires and on BOTH when the button is pressed. If not, work your way back to a bad connection or cut wire. Next, locate the solenoid. There should be two heavy cables and one or two smaller wires entering. The smaller wire is from the start button. Power 12V + should be on it when the button is pressed. If there are two smaller wires, one is probably ground or (-). If no power, check the wire for damage, etc. by following the wire back to the starter button. Once you have 12 V + starter circuit working into the solenoid, go to the next step.

Next, check the two heavy cables on the solenoid. One should have 12 V + power on it all the time and the other should have power only when the starter button is pressed. If you do not have power on one of the cables all the time, there is a bad connection,etc. between the solenoid and the + battery post. Check fuses, connections, etc. and make repairs. With power on one cable, press the start button A working 12 V starter circuit is required for this to work. If no power on the other heavy cable, the solenoid should probably be replaced. If you do have power out, it it still won't crank - check the cable between the starter and solenoid. Repair or replace as needed. If cable is good, the problem is likely to be the starter itself.

Good luck!

How can I upgrade my etower to an adequate gaming cpu?


Sorry, but the specs for the PC noted just won't support today's media rich, robust internet, and not to mentions games. Any hardware upgrades will eventually lead to a new system.

Rcr311b remote won't code to Sansui tv


Try a code search method.
Code Search
If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

IDENTIFYING CODES FOUND USING THE SEARCH PROCEDURE
  1. Press and hold the SETUP until the LED indicator lights steadily. Release Setup button.
  2. Press the mode button that matches the equipment you want to identify. The LED blinks once.
  3. Press and release SETUP. The LED blinks once.
  4. To find the first digit, press each number button from 0 to 9 until the LED blinks. The number you pressed is the first digit of the code.
  5. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the second digit.
  6. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the third digit.
  7. Press each number button in turn to find the fourth digit. When the fourth digit has been found, the LED goes out

My JVC KD-SH55 Car stereo won't switch on. It was in storage for a period and I installed it in my latedst car. All functions (receiver and CD) worked fine initially. It failed to come on today...


It sounds like a switched power or constant power issue have you checked the fuses. Their is all so a fuse behind the radio. Just unplug the harness going to the radio and it is behind that.

I forgot to remove input power supply of etower. Whilst emachines etower power supply was still on, i accidently moved the voltage selection switch to a higher voltage. There was big bang and fire happend...


Hi, First, check your power supply fuse for damage and switch the power to standard. Disconnect power supply output port and check your output voltage. If nothing abnormal, turn off power supply, connect the output and turn it on to check the power on your PC
