Adapter connection loose, and pocket dish won't work.

The power adapter connection is loose, and I was wondering if anyone knew the best way to open it up. It seems like it should be an easy fix, but I just want to be sure.

It's not an easy fix, and doing so would void the warranty - it would be best to call archos and see if you are still under warranty to get a replacement. If you do not want to do this, I would go to a repair shop or the Geek Squad - they will charge an arm and a leg. Unlike other electronic products, there is no way to unscrew this unit or 95% of other Mp3/Mp4 players.

I replaced the ac adapter on the motherboard of the Gateway NV5207u and now when I try to power it on, won't power on. battery light red


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.

There's seems to be a short where the AC adapter goes into the Laptop. Loose parts in that area of the Laptop where the adapter goes in. It won't turn on. Maybe it's the battery.


Unfortunately, this is a frequent issue with laptops. Being moved around frequently can cause the AC Adapter to pull at the DC Jack on the laptop. If it is loose, it can mean there is a broken connection within the laptop. What you can try is powering the laptop on with it plugged in and the battery removed. If that doesn't work, I'd recommend going to your local Best Buy and picking up a universal AC Adapter. If that doesn't work, you can always return it, even if opened.

My P85 simply won't turn on. I have tried two different adaptors. Neither work yet they are functioning with other keys. Please help. I have a gig on Sunday


What adapters have you tried? The P85 REQUIRES a 12 VAC adapter, NOT the common DC type and it needs a 1.5 amp (1500 ma) type adapter. If you connected a DC adapter it will NOT do damage, the unit just won't work. You can find adpaters on Ebay or Google search.

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...


For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

My printer won't turn on. I have tried turning everything off and back on but it still won't turn on.


There is only one way to find out if it is an issue with the printer or the Power cord or Power Adapter.

Normally every HP printer has 2 parts. One cord connects the Printer to an Adapter. the Adapter cord then connects to the Wall outlet.

Now that you have connected the printer to working outlet, Check after 10-15 mins if the Adapter ( black box ) is warm or cold. If the Adapter is warm and the green LED light on adapter is glowing, then it could an issue with the Cord or the Printer.

Try with another Adapter or power cord to diagnose.

For Other brand printers, there should be a power adapter ( black box ) and it should be warm when connected to wall outlet, if it is not warm then it is defective power adapter that you need to replaced. Else it is a problem with printer mechanism.

Shawn

Charging in plug but not charging


Here are some of the possible sources of the problem and suggested troubleshooting methods. AC Adapter Problems
If the AC adapter is not working properly, then the charging won't occur at all. An AC adapter, with lower than required voltage settings, will not be able to charge the battery. See to it that the AC adapter matches the laptop battery's requisite settings. A loose wire or internal breakdown, may render an AC adapter useless. Changing the adapter all together might solve your problem.
Power Management Software Problem
Sometimes, the problem is merely with the power management software. This is the classic case, when the laptop charges when switched off, but doesn't when the computer has booted. The software may have gotten corrupted which must be causing the problem. In such a case, go to the device manager section and uninstall the power management software. In case of Windows XP, uninstall 'Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing' from the device manger section. Take care that you do not install any other AC adapter driver software. Then go for a 'hardware scan', which will automatically identify the battery and reinstall the latest version of the drivers again. That will restore the charging facility of your laptop.
Internal Charging Circuitry Problem
If neither the AC adapter, nor the power management software has a problem, then problem can be with the internal charging circuitry of the laptop. In this case, there is little you can do, other than send the laptop to the manufacturer's service center.
Bad Battery
If you have checked for all of the above, one of the main reasons, which could lead to the problem of laptop plugged in but laptop battery not charging is a bad or dead battery. Run a laptop battery test. If your laptop is quite old, this could be one of the most likely reasons. Get the battery checked from the manufacturer and check if it has exceeded its predicted recharge cycle limit. It is important that you get the dead battery replaced immediately with a new one. Laptop battery troubleshooting will solve the problem.
Hope this article solves your problem of laptop plugged in but not charging. If you are unable to figure out the problem and none of the above troubleshooting methods work, it is best to send your laptop over for servicing with manufacturing company's service center. If you open up the laptop on your own, the warranty stands void, which means you have to spend out of your own pocket. So, unless, it is a software level problem, it is best that you let professionals solve the problem for you.

I just got a new pioneer cd player...was wondering if anyone knew how to install it into my 2001explorer sport...i know how to get out the old tape deck, but not sure how to connect the wires....


Yes there is an adapter. It will help you from getting a big headache. The wires will match from the stereo to the adapter and all that will have to be done is use an installation bracket. Plug and play. Trust me spend the approx. extra $40 dollars for the installlation kit and installation harness. Both can usually be bought at an autoparts store or even wal-mart.
