I found a fuse F4 250V. T1.6A blown. After replace it and turn on the power, my control panel, PSC box and motor doesn't have any power.

Mostly a fuse doesn't fail without a good reason. Sometimes the fault is intermittent and replacing the fuse makes the machine or device work again for a long or short time though it is almost a forlorn hope.

Best practice is to thoroughly check and discover the cause of a failed fuse before replacing it a second time (there usually is a second time).

In your case the reason the fuse failed was probably something else failing in a quite permanent way rather than an intermittent way. It is a nuisance but at least a permanent fault is easier to find than an intermittent one.
The wiring and internal circuitry will need systematic checking both visually and electrically.

I have a Finepix xp50, with a fully charged, correctly installed battery, that won't turn on. It worked intermittantly for awhile. We have 3 batteries for this camera thinking it was the battery

Be sure your battery is in the right way. Try reversing it. My battery has 3 rounded corners and one square corner. The square corner goes against the latch.

My 04 trailblazer intermittently sounds like it is running over a rumble strip, then it stops after applying brakes a few times

What would a "rumble strip" sound like? Squeaking, metal clanking against metal? Trailblazers have lots of noises that are a nuisance, and I've fixed most of them.

Both power window on my APV work intermittent. Goes about half inch and stops wait awhile and the same thing. Would disassembly and lube help?

No, it is the internal circuit breaker in the window motor that is the problem. You need a new window motor.

Acer n30 Screen Tap Freeze

Sounds as if the touch screen membrane is defective, which is a darned nuisance, but not impossible to fix .... if you are confident of dismantling the n30, you can buy a new touch screen membrane from Ebay for about 4 pounds/6 dollars.
It is a very skilful job to remove the old touch membrane from the actual display screen below it, not really for a novice, and all internal components are very delicate, so i suggest you find a tame technician before you buy the new membrane. The touch membrane connects to the motherboard via a tiny flexible 4 or 5 pin membrane ribbon cable, it's a miracle of miniature engineering inside the n30, so do ve very careful if you decide to do it yourself, best of luck!
