Hi, i think you have a bad/burnt resistor on the main circuit board. That is usually the cause when power is lost on it.. Take care

I have an upright goldstar dehumifer that only worked in year. it will not come on. i have cleaned the filter. it has an automatic shut off if the basket is full. how do i get this to work again

First, be sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch that is located on the rear wall of the bucket holder. In addition, while you have the bucket out, check the inside of the bucket for a float valve. It may be stuck in the UP position. In which case, it will not turn ON. When reinstalling the bucket, be sure that it fit's "squarely" into the bucket holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all and make good contact with the safety removal switch.

In addition, you may want to check the outlet it's plugged into, to be sure there's power to the outlet and ultimately to the dehumidifier.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Breaker tripped and now my nintendo wii wont turn on

Few things to try:

1. Different Outlet. Plug the console into a different outlet in your residence. If the Wii turns on, the outlet is dead. I would recommend an electrician to fix the outlet.

2. Try a different power adapter. You could purchase another power brick or get one from a friend and use the new one to try and power up the console. Also try in a different outlet (step one) to be sure

3. If none of this works, the console may have just received too much power and burnt out the power supply. Contacting Nintendo. Information below:

No power

If your radio is powered by batteries, try changing the batteries. If your battery needs to be charged, try that too. If your radio is powered by an alternating current (AC) cable, make sure the plug is plugged into the outlet correctly and that the outlet is not deteriorated. If the outlet that you're plugging the radio into is controlled by a switch, make sure that switch is turned on. If all of that doesn't work, it may be that the batteries contacts are deteriorated or a cold solder joint is causing bad contact with the power supply.

No red led power light. no power at all

Try unplugging it and then replugging it into the outlet. Try moving it to another outlet to make sure the power is good. Try a new power cable. If all else fails, contact LG's warranty service if the TV still is covered.

Every few months the compressor will not come on. It will try over and over but will not start. At the same time, the light does not come on when the door is opened. I can unplug the power cord and plug it...

The lighting circuit and the compressor electrical circuit are independent from each other once they go past the electrical terminal block, (where the power cord connects to, on the back of the fridge).
For the description of the problem, it sounds like you have a loose power cord terminal connection at the block, a defective power cord or power outlet.
Try connecting the fridge on the other power outlet (if it is connected to a regular dual outlet ), some times the contactors, over time, tend to loose the grip on the power cord plug and the contact is lost, when you remove the plug from the outlet and plug it back in, restores temporarily the contact again, or, the plug itself can be defective and loses contact. Replacing the power cord and using a different power outlet (even if it is a dual) will let you know if that where the problem was. If that doesn't solve the problem, let me know and will do some more troubleshooting.
Good Luck and keep me posted.

My c4480 printer will not turn on. I checked the connection on back of the printer. I used different A/C outlets.


Try the following solutions if there are no light indications, no noise, and no movement from the printer when you turn it on.
Solution 1: Make sure you use the power cord that came with the product
• Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to both the product and the power adapter.
Plug the power cord into a power outlet, surge protector, or power strip.
• If you are using a power strip, make sure the power strip is turned on. Or, try plugging the
product directly into a power outlet.
• Test the power outlet to make sure it is working. Plug in an appliance that you know works,
and see if the appliance has power. If not, then there might be a problem with the power
• If you plugged the product into a switched outlet, make sure the outlet is switched on. If it
is switched to on but still does not work, then there might be a problem with the power outlet.
Cause: The product was not being used with the power cord provided.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Reset the product
Solution: Turn off the product, and then unplug the power cord. Plug the power cord back in,
and then press the On button to turn on the product.
Cause: The product experienced an error.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Press the On button more slowly
Solution: The product might not respond if you press the On button too quickly. Press the
On button once. It might take a few minutes for the product to turn on. If you press the On button
again during this time, you might turn the product off.
Cause: You pressed the On button too quickly.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Contact HP to replace the power supply
Solution: Contact HP support to request a power supply for the product.
Go to:
If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling
for technical support.
Cause: The power supply was not intended for use with this product or it had a mechanical
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 5: Contact HP support for service
Solution: If you have completed all of the steps provided in the previous solutions and are still
having a problem, contact HP support for service.
Go to:
If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for technical support.
Cause: You might need assistance to enable the product or software to function properly.

Good Luck

Jack Lalanne Power Juicer

I bought the juicer at a second-hand store in brand new condition however the crescent tool was missing. To remove the flat blade for cleaning, I use a pair of scissors spread far enough to fit the ends in both holes. Hold the basket still while turning the scissors counter-clockwise untill the flat blade detaches. Easy as that! I ordered the tool, but it hasn't arrived yet. Hope this helps!

If it happened within a year, you should have just had the warranty replace it. We had it happen after nearly 11 months, it was replaced within two days.

OM 99727 shredder not working

I had this same problem. This is what I did to fix it.

When I went to (the recommended web site for technical support of this particular shredder), I read that 'Most models of shredders have a safety interlock switch that is activated by the basket.' Upon looking closely at my basket and the shredder, I found this safetly interlock switch and made sure to align it with the proper position within the basket. There is only ONE way to place the shredder on the basket and have this safety interlock switch activated. The switch is located on the underside of the shredder. Align this switch with the ridge on the inside of the basket. Listen carefully and you will hear the switch 'click' when in the right position. Mine is very touchy. I've even had to press in on the side of the basket while shredding to make sure that the ridge and the switch are making contact.

Hope this helps!
