My Coby LEDTV-2426 24 No Power


Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

I have a rocketfish 1025 va which has worke well and i have been happpy with. but i now have a very strange problem. today i moved it into another room to power my cable modem and router, nothing more....


Well, first let address the lack of power usage from your router and cable modem. The router, depending on model, may only use less than 5 amps of of power, depending on the load it is using at any one time, the cable modem is using maybe 2 amps, at peak load, since the line is already powered from the cable company, there is no real load. Since the usage is much less than 1 watt, it would not register on your meter. The reason why unplugging your devices from the wall, for it to not provide backup power to all of the devices is the battery(ies) may not be providing enough juice to maintain the power required for ll of the devices plugged in. Also, UPS are generally not compatible with power strips and therefore do not tend to function properly with a devices powered on the strip. They generally won't complete the power connection due to the strip carrying a much higher load than the UPS can support. This should explain all of your power issues. If you require additional information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Battery doesn't charge


When you connect the charger, if the light goes to red to green within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced. This can happen if the power chair has not been charged in a while or has been stored. Having the chair on or off while charging will not affect the charging process, but you ususally want it to be OFF.
Good luck!

The on-off switch on Speedstream 5100 modem keeps turning itself off, every few hours for few days. Finally modem has no power, what could the problem be? already tried replacing the power cord but still...


1: unplug all the cords to the modem
2: press the reset button from the back of it
3: leave it for about 5 minutes to drain off the static charge
4: plug it only to power source to see if the power lights up
5: if does'nt don't waste your time on it, its bad and if it was provided to you by your internet service provider get it replaced for free.
6: if you bought it yourself check for warranty generally modems have lifetime warranty

Problem for D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router, Orange Power Light


I have had multiple problems with these routers. They tend to drop signals or have other issues that are hard to explain in a few short sentences.
After you rebooted did you open your browser and type in the IP address to connect to the router software?

can you be more specific?

I just time warner to hook up my internet and they supplied me with a modem without an on/off switch. How do I safely shut the modem off when I want to use my computer off line?


Pull the power adapter out. Just don't plug it back in for a few minutes.

Or even easier, if your computer is cabled unplug the ethernet and if its wireless just disconnect.

DSL modem no power in house, OK at shop, same cables.


Well, by process of elimination, it sounds like it may be a problem in the wiring in the house. Your best bet may be to test your outlets for proper wiring (ie. hot/netural faults), and for cycle rate (in hz, 60hz is nomal). I would also look into a surge bar that is built for normalizing power (Often called Power Cleaners). If you have older electrical service into your house (fed from a pole) or if you are in an apartment or condo type building, there may be line problems with the power supply. Basic outlet testers are under $10 and really handy to have around if you do any sort of electrical work, but the surge bars can be quite pricy. I would look at other outlets in the house that have similar AC/DC converters attached (like cordless phones, laptop computers) and see if it works in those outlets. Really a very strange problem, and may go deeper then just the modem itself.
