THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION. You have a short circuit in the system. The electricity is arcing - it can cause a fire or kill you. Unplug the computer immediately and disconnect the power cord so it cannot be plugged in again.

You will likely need to buy a new computer, because when this happens, it sometimes burns up the memory and processor, the motherboard, and your hard drive

My 1991 s-10 pickup 2.5 cranks but won't start

Make sure distributor cap and rotor are good. Make sure there's no carbon tracking or corrosion inside the cap. Make sure the carbon button isn't worn out. Contained within the distributor is the ignition module. This would give you a no spark condition.

My 2004 f 150 airbags light stays solid for a couple of seconds when I turn the truck on then flashes 4 times then its off then it flashes 2 times then 4 then 2 what's the problem

A LFC ( light Flash Code ) 42 is the front impact severity sensor on a 2004 New Body Style ( should not get this LFC on a 2004 Heritage or Lightning ).

The Front impact severity sensor is located on the center radiator support, open the hood and you will find it next to the ambient air temperature sensor.

The part number is 6L3Z-14B004-AA

You might find cleaning the connector might work, but usually it is a case of the front impact severity sensor is corroded inside the sensor itself, and needs to be replaced.

My Xerox XC 1040 lights are on but it will not copy. There is a H and a 4 that comes up on the small screen. We have had several lightning storms in this area lately. We have turned it off and also...

The lightning can cause this code. The good news is that also means it is most likely a false code. Reset this code by pressing the Clear key then the Far Left key on the control panel also known as the exposure mode key. Then press clear again followed by far left again. So in short form press C, Far Left, C, Far Left. If done fast enough and properly your display should go blank. Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies and press the print button. This should reset your H4 and the machine should be restored to operational. If the code comes back within a minute or so then you have a failure in the fuser unit (part that gets hot)
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya

This is an error that plagues many different brands and models of camera. It's often the result of the camera being dropped, or of it getting dirty inside the lens housing. Basically, the electronics inside the camera are detecting a sticking point between the lens and the body and shutting down to avoid further can try the following:
  • Make sure the lens isn't visibly sticking anywhere. Look around the edges of the lens and see if it's making contact with the body. If it is, try to gently center it and then attempt to turn the camera on.
  • . Try using compressed air (not too high pressure, obviously) to blow around the edge of the lens.
  • Last of all, I have read several stories about people gently "banging" on the bottom of the camera just below the lens. I guess it couldn't hurt .Well... I guess if there are no other choices,,,alrighty then!

Hi, After a recent severe lightenung storm my Samsung DVD player is not working. When turned on it read CD/DVD Protection and shuts off. Will not open/close or stay on. Tina

Hello.. Since the problem ocurred after a lightning storm then there is a good chance that your dvd player experienced a power surge from the power line and may be seriously damaged. Try unplugging the unit fromn the wall plug and let it staythat way for 10-20 minutes then plug it in again.. if it continues to malfunction then it is probably junk.. The power down/power up reset sometimes clears malfunctions like this but not always... and especially not if a component inside it is damaged.. Good Luck..

Wont start

Make sure that you're getting spark. A very common thing on these engines are coils going bad. If you can verify spark, check to make sure you have an injector pulse. As you rotate the engine, look inside of the throttle body and make sure that you see fuel pulsing into the engine. You can still have good pressure but you don't have an injector pulse, the fuel still cant get into the engine. You can use a test light as well to test for an injector pulse. One wire going to the injector will have constant power and the other will blink when the engie is rolled over. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body? If it does, it's a fuel delivery problem. Again be sure you have spark from coil to distributor and plugs. You can remove the ignition module and take it to NAPA and they have a module tester. Have them test the module several times not just once. This will eliminate the possibilites of an intermitted problem. Let me know how it does.
