The unit appears to be dead but the green and yellow channel LED's continuously flicker.


I am guessing that the lights are near the network cable plug? This simply shows that there is a signal on the network cable that is plugged-in. The laptop may be dead. Is there a light on the power supply? If you remove the battery, plug the power in and press the power button, what happens?

... no drive motor sound


No drive motor means that either the motor is dead or the interface inside the case has failed. Take out the hard disk and put it directly in a desktop - if it fails even there then it's truly dead , junk it.

Hello I hv an Acer aspire 4702z model z01 who's


remove the side of the computer and make sure the power connector is plugged in to the drive. if it is not then plug it in and the problem is solved. if it is the drive is dead or you have a faulty power supply try plugging in another power connector ... if it is an ATA power connector it has 4 wires and usually a white plug but not always white. there is also a dat cable called a ribbon cable and it looks flat 2 inches across and grey. if it is a SATA drive connector it will look like a thick cable with a black plug coming down from the top of the computer where the power supply is. There are 2 cables plugged in to the drive the bigger plug is the power cable the one with the smaller plug is the data cable usually orange or red. Make sure everything is plugged in if it is the drive is mostly dead. you can buy a new drive for around $25 at a computer store. easy to replace... i hope this helps

BIOS update has killed my Netbook!


Hello,
BIOS updates should only be done by certified technicians, if you put the wrong version on your system, lets say even 1 earlier version, there is potential that your computer may never start again. 
I would contact Acer, is your machine still under warranty?

Hi, I have a Directv HD HR22-100 receiver that I think might be dead. It won't power on, when I plug it in the lights in back flash for a second thats it. I've tried resetting unplugging/plugging. I don't...


unplug all the cables from the back except the your video output ( hdmi, component,) restart the receiver. if u still have the problem then it is dead. if it starts up there is a problem with the cabling or dish and your will need a service tech.

LaCie drive won't turn on (blue light doesn't go on)


I doubt your hard drive is dead, even if your HD was dead the blue light would go one. It has to be the internal controller.. Your best bet is to get a HD enclosure and put your old drive in there. I've burned through 3 Lacie cases, all with similar problems..

Exactly right. This has happened to me on two occasions, renew the power transformer and that will solve your problem.

Canopus ADVC 110 converter box not working


Plugging in the FireWire backward, especially if it's the 6-pin FireWire, will damage the unit's hardware. You need to contact technical support to arrange for repair.

Dead, plug in, powers up, goes dead


This is the typical way that drive belt problem occur. The mechanism needs some slip to accomodate the changing reel speeds as the tape plays, but if it slips too much, the reels don't move at all, the processor thinks there is a problem and turns off.
Time for a belt job.
