Perhaps during the interlude that the eMachines wasn't being used, there was a power outage, or lightning struck nearby.

The first hardware component that I would check, would be the Power On switch, and Power Supply.

Bypass the Power On switch to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If bypassing turns the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power On switch.

If bypassing does Not turn the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power Supply.

Inside the plastic Power On button, is a Power On switch.
It is a Momentary Contact Switch.

Below is one example of a Power On switch, I have found to fit many computers.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Bypassing is done with a jumper wire, inserted into the back of the 20/24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

The jumper wire Briefly, touches the Soft Power On wire (Green) terminal down in the connector, and ANY Ground terminal. (Black)

I listed 20/24-pin above, because I don't know if the T3065 uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

Below is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's corresponding connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

The photo all the way to the Right, shows the back of the connector.
It is plugged into the motherboard.

The Front of the connector is plugged into the female socket on the motherboard.
The Back of the connector is shown, and this is the area the power wires go down into.

Here you can see the green Soft Power On wire.
ANY of those Black wires are Ground wires.

I have Not detailed this procedure yet.

Do Not attempt it until I do.

I want to know first, if you are interested in doing the procedure, and will also outline any safety issues involved.

I have had my HP Pavilion dv6 1245dx laptop for a little over 2 years now and, up until about a week ago, have had no real problems with it. Recently, however, it has been shutting down by itself. So far...


hi

find out if the fan is blowing air -- tun notebook over and see if the air is blowing out from under it, while notebook is running. I would say that the heatsink fan may have stopped working, and it shuts down the computer as a fail safe response, so that the CPU or mainboard is not damaged.

other possibility, ---- the power connection (when inserting the AC adapter cord) may be faulty .to find out : remove the battery from computer (while computer is off). Turn computer on, insert the AC adapter cord. If notebook turns on, its fine -- if not and disconnects intermittently, you have a faulty AC adapter or power cord or combination/hop this helps

thanks for using FIXYA

1. Turn machine off 2. After it has completely powered down, unplug the power cord from the wall. 3. Go back to the front of the machine and turn it on and then back off again (remembering to leave it UNPLUGGED from power.) 4. WAIT 60 SECONDS (Very important) 5. AFTER 60 seconds plug it back into the wall and turn it back on.
If problem persists call for service.
Hope it helps!

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

Tower switch dose not turn on.i took out power wire from the wall plug when i went to trip 5 weeks ago


Make sure the power cord is securly plugged into the Power Supply Unit in the back of the PC and also in the wall outlet. Look for a switch by the cord plug on the pc that will have a straight line and a circle on it. Make sure it's switched to the ON position (straight line). Try and turn on your pc.

If this does not work still, try a different AC outlet on another wall or in another room. Also try a different power cord for the PC. If none of these work and your machine will still not start up or you don't hear any fans going when you press the button, it might be a bad Power Supply Unit (PSU). I have seen PSU's blow out just by plugging or unplugging the power cord because it can create a spark. If you have a bad PSU, you will need to contact someone local to replace it or you can take your unit to a Best Buy or local computer store and have them give you a price on a new PSU.

Psc 2210 sounds like the gears just keep grinding then after a bit it stops. says press enter and nothing happens.


perform power cycle
1. Unplug the unit’s power cord from the back of the printer while the printer is 'on'.
2. Hold down the ‘On’ button for 60 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back to the unit while holding the ‘On‘ button down.
4. This will reset the printer’s mechanical systems and discharge all capacitors.
If the issue still persists, then
  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons on the numeric keypad.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back in to the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them.
This should resolve your issue.

My hp desktop computer will not turn on


If you cant see or heard any boot up sounds, fans and especially if you dont see any power or green led lights at all ;

If your power cord is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, power cycle your strip or surge protector by turning off and on.

If power outlet has a wall switch make sure its on

Check that your power cable is securely plug in to both ends

Check that at the back of computer, specifically on the back of the power supply unit that the switch is on "1" position and NOT on the "0" position ( 1 is "ON" , 0 is "OFF" )

Check that the power outlet is not damaged by pluging in another good known device (such as a blowdryer, shaver, lamp, radio, etc, etc) to see if its the power outlet or not.

Can you see power or green led lights and hear the fan on but no display ? If this is the case , check your monitor connection at both ends. If they are secured open up your case and see if you can smell any burnt smell or check that all cards especially video cards are properly seated.

Won't turn on


Did you leave it on for the week while you were gone? if so you may have built up **** on the vents of the wii and it will automatically shutdown and not come back on untill it's clear to avoid overheating. Make sure none of your wires are exposed or frayed cuz this will make it shut down too. and I know it's dumb but something the dumbest things can get ya, check that the wall outlet works by plugging lamp into it or something cuz i've had this happen to me. Oh and check and make sure all wires are connected very well

SONY WEGA KV27FS120 WON'T TURN ON, LED BLINKS A FEW TIMES


I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I sure hope it will. I had a similar problem with TWO of the three Sony 24" TVs I had bought together. TV#1 konked out a month ago; TV#2 messed up last week. So I called the Sony Service Center, and this very nice guy told me that a lot of times this problem occurs because the TV isn't plugged directly into the wall (most people plug theirs into a power strip/surge protector). When it happened to TV1, we hadn't been using TV2 so we just traded their locations and the "bad" one sat there waiting to be thrown out...and sat and sat and sat. Well, I was pretty hot when it happened again a month later to TV2. The service center guy told me to unplug TV2 and replug it in the wall after about 1 minute and turn it on. Nothing happened. Then he told me to plug in TV1 and turn it on. I did, reluctantly. And it actually worked!! I don't know if anyone having this problem has a week to be without their TV, but the guy said sometimes it takes up to a week of sitting to get it to work right again. So I'm waiting a few more days before I try to plug in TV2 to see if it works again, but for now, at least I've got one TV back. Here's hoping you all have the same experience. And then I guess we'll have to decide whether to plug back into a power strip (mine was actually plugged into my cable TV's DVR machine) or into the wall.

Monitor does not work


sounds like a slightly damaged power supply. try powering up with an equivalent supply. if only an ac wall cord is plugged in for power, then internal supply is at fault
