"I have two CD expansion consoles and can't get the led to light and it doesn't seem to have any power at all. I have 3 Genesis mod 2 that work with my good cd console and hooked each up and get nothing with either one."
Which CD expansion do you have? There was a model 1 and 2. Either case, both have fuses that keep the system from powering on at all, they are marked on the board as F1, and ought to be near the power input. These go out all the time, and it's a common problem.

I repaired mine by using a fuse holder from auto zone, so if it ever goes out again I can easily replace it and skip any soldering.

Wii won't turn on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
  • The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
  • Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

Information:
This issue can be caused by an accessory or power surge tripping the circuit breaker on the AC Adapter.

What To Do:
  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.

  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.

  • Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)

Situation Not Resolved:
If the system still won't power on, the system and AC adapter will need to be repaired. To start the repair process, click here.
Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light Situation:
  • The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays

Information:
If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.
This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.
Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.

Situation Not Resolved:
If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.
We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

My son dropped his dsi xl in the loo and he tried pushing the power button to turn it off. I've blower dried it. I haven't be able to take it apart to dry out, but now I have it in a bag with rice....


First you want to keep it plugged in and start it. If it doesn't start, let it charge and try again. If it still doesn't start you might want to call and check if you have warranty over it, and then send it back to get it replaced. That or get a new one all together.

My laptop won't turn on, and the charger doesn't seem to be doing anything. even when plugged in, it won't start. ideas?


You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

if notebook is getting power, you can remove the battery, ac adapter, hold and keeep pressing poer button for a minute, then, turn it on.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

Power works; fan spins;light is on; promo screen works; disc won't read; disk won't spin


The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere
