Dell unstick power button on PC desktop

It sounds like either the push button assembly is broken on the front bezel cover, or the power switch is broken. Follow these steps to take the covers off.

Front Bezel:

Side access cover:

Now look for either a broken piece on the bezel push button assembly or a broken power switch inside the computer case.

My Miele Novotronic W502 does not have any power although it is plugged in

I would check that I do have power present at the outlet. If power is present the next step would be to check the fuse on the push button switch. Unplug the machine and then gain access to the push button switch by pulling the knob off after that you will need to take the orange plastic key from behind the detergent dispenser, and use it to remove the facia panel by pressing down slightly and wedging the key in between to gain access to the electronic. The electronic can be removed by taking out the 2 Torx 20 screws one on each side after that remove the connector plugs from the push button and unseat it from the clip. If you the fuse has continuity it could be a problem with the interference capacitor or the electronic.

The HP Pavilion 523n desktop computer, has a computer case where both side panels can be removed.

This will allow access to all the tabs from the Front Panel.

Working on a table, computer unplugged from power.
Observe anti-static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer case open, Touch the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Should you walk away from working on your computer, upon your return, be Sure to Touch the metal frame again.

Ignore the above if you are aware ]

Observing the rear of the computer, you will see two screws on the Right side edge, and on the Left side edge.

One towards the top, one towards the bottom.

The screws on the Right side are removed, so that you can remove the side panel, to gain access to the inside of the computer.

(Again, you are viewing the computer from the Rear)

Removing the screws from the left side will let you remove that left side panel.

(Actually the Right.
Viewing a computer from the Front is the correct orientation, when referring to the Right, and Left sides of a computer)

Viewing inside your computer, and to the Front, you will notice that there are plastic flat tabs.
These flat tabs are part of the Front Panel.

The tabs protrude through the metal framework of the computer case.

There are 3 tabs on the Left side.
(Viewing the computer from the Front)

There are also 3 tabs on the Right side.
One at the bottom, one in the middle, and one towards the top.

The tabs have a hooked end.

The tabs must be pushed towards the inside of the computer, so that the hooked end will clear the slot, that the tab goes through.

(Slot in metal framework of computer case)

Push the 3 tabs, one at a time, in on the Left side.

Push the tab on the bottom towards the inside of the computer.
Holding the bottom tab in, push the middle tab towards the inside of the computer.

This should allow you to EASE the bottom of the Front Panel out, towards the front of the computer, just a LITTLE.

Now reach up, and push the top tab towards the inside of the computer.

Once the hooked end of these tabs have cleared the slots they were in, the Left side of the Front Panel will be free.
Go to the other side.
The Right side.

Do the same procedure again with the Right side.

The Front Panel will come off of the computer pretty far, before the Front Panel wires have reached their length limit.

Use caution however, as you could pull too far, and accidentally break one of those wires.

If you have any further questions regarding this, or related to the Pavilion 523n, just post in a Comment.

Have emachine T1150 - the on off button when pushed in is getting stuck and machine will no longer turn on. Can this be fixed and is it worth the cost ? Can I fix myself ?

The switch on the outer plastic front panel is usually just a plastic peice with a spring, it pushes the button in on the inside metal housing of the computer case, therefore not really much to worry about, you just need to remove the front panel to free up the plastic so it dose'nt get stuck in the hole, this is normally just caused through dust or resadue build up from your fingers when turning the computer on and off.
To get the front panel off you will have to remove the side panel, have a look to see if there any screws holding the front panel on, if not then it is just held on by expansion clips that expand with inserted into the metal houses of the case, just gentle ease away from the inner housing.
When you have removed the front panel just fiddle with the switch a bit and try to free it up, whilst the front panel is off you could try pressing the button on the front metal housing to ensure the computer does turn on.
when you have done this just replace the front panel and and put the case back together and you should have solved the sticky switch problem.

Broken USB jack, no power.

1) Unplug the computer from power. Open the computer case.

2) TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case. (Not shouting)
This will relieve your body of Static electricity.

3) Unplug the front panel USB cable from the motherboard. (If there are two cables coming from the front panel, unplug them both)

4) Close the computer case.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. Let go of the button.
Do this procedure two more times. (Total of three times)

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and setting BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

5) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
If the computer still doesn't start, the motherboard is fried.
(I believe the computer will work okay)

There is no Service Manual available. If you follow the cable/s from the front panel to the motherboard, you'll see where it/they connect.

Hi, The dial doesn't turn anymore and you have to push it in hard and try and work out what setting it is on. Also the start/hold to reset button has to be pushed several times to get it to start and has...

You have probably dislodged the plastic moulding in the control module that hold the buttons in place, you will have to remove top cover, soap dispenser draw, and front panel to gain access to the control module.
Please rate my solution.

Kenmore dryer will not turn on

Sounds like a classic broken Belt. You'll have to take the front or top off to gain access to the belt and it is wrapped around the TUB. If you can pull it up and down with no problems its the belt or the idler tentioner that keeps the belt tight.

Possibly its also the tub rolers or bearings but if you can push the tub from the inside by hand you will know if its in this area or not. If it turns freely then the belts off or broke cause when its on and tight you anct make it move very far. Important not to make the tub turn back wards too far especially if its tough to move. If its loose to move then either way usually dosnt hurt anything.

Mitsubishi WS65611 no remote function & panel buttons not working

This TV is known for the buttons going bad. You can remove the speaker grille to gain access to the wires for the panel. You may have to pull off the font access panel to get to the connector. There will be two of them, one for the input, other for the control panel buttons. If the buttons are bad, unhooking them will make the TV work fine with remote. I believe the connector is labeled ZR and is not the one with the thicker black wires (shieled video wires). Unhooking is my fix for this problem as replacing the buttons seems to be only a temporary fix.

Power button stuck

I had the same problem. To get to the power button you just have to remove the front trim panel that the button is attached to. There is a small slot on the bottom of the pannel near the power buttom. I inserted a very small screwdriver and pried the front corner up then very carefully I went around the perimeter with the screwdriver and released the snap hooks by gently prying the silver side trim panel away from the front trim panel. It's not hard but you have to be gentle so as not to break a hook or mar the trim. Once you have the front trim panel loosened there is a wire which connects the four buttons on the front to the monitor. It's very short so don't drop the front trim panel.
