My Samsung CoolTech Model SR-L709EVSS fridge and freezer works for a few days and then goes off by its self and then works again. What could the problem be?

Only time these units completely shut down is when the defrost timer shuts down all power to the compressor and condenser/evaporator motors. Only the bulb works.
If that timer gets stuck somehow that would explain the complete shutdown and mysterious restart later .

If your Toshiba Laptop Will Not Turn On

This is a nice simple solution to a problem commonly experienced with Toshiba laptops or notebooks. Please remember this is not a guaranteed solution as there may be other factors involved as to why your laptop is failing to start e.g faulty RAM.

However, this is a very common issue that appears with these laptops and hence the reason for the Tip. It is very simple to do, involves no cost and often resolves the problem without any further intervention.

If your Toshiba laptop has mysteriously turned itself off and is now totally unresponsive or appears completely dead and won't turn back on - then read on.

  • Laptop mysteriously turns itself off and will not turn back on
  • Laptop appears completely dead/black screen/unresponsive
  • Laptop refuses to charge the battery when connected to the mains supply i.e. No charge light showing.
  • There may be a brief flash of the screen or power button when you try to turn it on but then it immediately shuts off again.
  • If the laptop is still connected to the mains unplug it completely
  • Remove the battery from underneath the machine by releasing the locking tabs (or screws dependant on your version).
  • *Important*: With the battery removed - press and hold down the power button for at least 20 seconds. This is to remove any residual power from the laptop.
  • Reinstall the battery and plug the laptop back in to the mains.
  • Turn laptop on as normal and hopefully it should power up.

As stated at the outset, in some instances there will be other reasons as to why your laptop is not turning on. However, because these symptoms are a common yet often overlooked problem with this laptop, it is highly recommended to troubleshoot this procedure first before resorting to testing or replacing any hardware.

Hp laptop won't power on

Hello. It sounds like either...

1. Your power adapter is damaged/not working. Look and see if a LED is illuminating on the power adapter. If it is chances are it is working fine and the problem may lie on your laptop. If not replace it. The easiest way to tell if your power adapter is bad is to go out to Wal-Mart or your local technology store and purchase one of their universal power adapters. They are expensive but you can buy it, try it, and return it if it does not solve the problem.


2. The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.

Good luck.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

Your notebook is overheating. Do not situate it on bed or on your lap because that blocks the vents. And try air duster on the vents.
You should be thankful that it shuts down - you sure do not want a mysterious explosion or a fire. It is a special defensive measure.
