" a problem occurred during installation"

I have had the drive for a few months now with no problems. Recently there were several power outages which seemed to cause havoc with my external hardrive.The computer does not communicate with the drive. There is an error flaf next to the device in the device manager. After uninstalling and then plugging back in to start all over, the computer tells me "a problem occurred during instalation, your device may not work properly". The computer recognizes the drive but will not comunicate with it.

We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

1988 ford ranger 2.9 ltr engine stalls while driving , restarts in a few minutes usually


There are several possibilities, but based on how you described the symptoms I suggest a profile igniton pickup. On these systems the failure usually begins as dropping a cylinder occasionally,like a misfire,mostly during high underhood temperatures,will manifest into stalling and finally into a stall with no resart condition. Symptoms are most likely to occur in summer. The pickup is inside the distributor and the distributor must be disassembled to install it,the trickiest part being the removal and installation of the distributor drive gear. They are iron and easily broken. The simplest solution is another distributor. The ignition modules typically do not fail in this manner,but this is classic for the pickup coil. A code for loss of pip signal should be present, it is possible for a code to not be present,though very unlikely. Having worked on these systems for years this would be my first area of diagnosis.

Cx4200 epson printer, make noise, feeds paper but comes out blank. Have checked the ink on the cartridges and clean the nozzle heads. Left it unplugged over night


I don't know if the problem was fixed by the update or simply the reboot. (Rebooting just the printer had no effect.) Also, FYI, there had been a power outage right before the problem started, but I'm not sure how that would affect the issue, unless maybe the Mac had installed some problematic software during the reboot that obviously occurred after the power outage was resolved. Sometimes software updates don't complete until the next reboot, and she may have downloaded some updates long ago without completing the process with a reboot. Just guesses, but hopefully some of that help you too.

Problem is occured during installation of USB Mass Storage Device An error occured during the installation of the device Data error(cyclic redundancy check)


Try uninstalling the USB root hubs in the device manager and then restart. They will reinstall upon the restart.

It may also could be a bad power adapter.

The main board in my Haier HDN455 is dead. I have power to it, then none of the power lines leaving are hot. We had a power outage and it went after that. Any luck in finding a new one?


The applaince parts companies that I work with do not provide a replacement main board. You can write or call the manufacturer to try to get a replacement main board.

These problems occur because of voltage spikes that occur during power outages and lightening storms. You should consider installing whole house surge protection.

All of your electronic equipment is subject to damage; investing a couple hundred dollars for a good surge protector may save you $1000s of dollars in the future.

I am a licensed Master Electrician, and I provide fee-based DIY assistance. The fee is based upon the scope of work. The fee for assistance in installing a house surge protector is $25. Please go to http://taeckertindustries.com/serv01.htm to obtain DIY assistance

Error Msg: A disk read error occured.


WEll i don't know how they fixed it before but if you get a disc read error then it's a bad hard drive. They may have gotten it to read again but it's still a bad hard drive and needs to be replaced and a new one put in. Don't know if they charged you for a bad hard drive before but it doesn't sound like they replaced it. Get a new drive and re-install your operating system and it should be fine.

SOUND NO PICTURE


Hello, You have a high voltage section problem I would not suggest fixing this set on your own. You will need to take this set to the shop. Because there are no user repairable parts inside of the set.
