Can't be turned on. Last used a week ago, now no red light at all when power is supplied.


Make sure the cord is pushed in all the way on the back of the tv. If it is then check for fuses on the power supply board inside the tv

My denon AVR 1913 will not connect to the internet/network as set up connected to the router. there was no problem with this one week ago, but following a power outage last night, i cannot connect to the...


Sounds like you have given it a good shot. Hopefully the power outage did not 'brown out' which causes damage to some devices. Here is what I would do. With everything connected and powered up, do a hard reset of your modem/router by pressing the recessed button for 10 secs or so. Then log on and re-enter you user name and password and allow DHCP to find all the connected devices. Reserve addresses if you want to. This has worked for me when I had a similar problem. Good luck!

Laptop has power but won't boot up


There are three possible reasons why it's acting like that.

1. Defective AC Adapter or Power cord
2. Defective Motherboard
3. Defective Battery

First off, you need to isolate the part which causing the issue. Please follow the following steps:

1. Remove the battery and use the power cord alone in powering up your computer. If it goes well, then you need to replace the battery. If no go, then try using a different known good outlet.

2. Check the acer power adapter (the box) if there's a light lit. If it's green, then it's should be working fine. If it's amber or nothing at all, then there's a problem with it. You might need to replace that.

3. If the AC adapter looks good, then try to wiggle the cord so that you can check if the cord is properly connected to the computer. Usually, cords get loose and it causes problems. If it has this kind of problem, then you need to get a technician to check that for you because you might need to buy a new motherboard for that.

Please do the above simple steps, and let me know if anything happens. I hope this can solve the issue.

My LG LCD 32LD350 seemed to have been fried in a storm last night, stanby red light no longer lit and won't turn on, still see some green lighting inside televison, but it won't turn on, Is it


Is it repairable, well, this question can be answered only after opening the back cover and evaluating the damage. From you side, please connect the TV to a different power outlet where other similar devices are working and see. Then try changing the input device to something that sure works. If it does not work even then, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

Your computer is not POSTing, the best solution is to get warranty support on it.

The other option is to take it to a computer technician and he/she will diagnose the faulty component. They have access to many computer components and can determine the fault by a process of elimination.
