Question about Ideal Industries IDEAL LinkMaster (62-200) Network Testing Device

Open Question

Linkmaster 62-200 seems to go through batteries fairly quickly. I don't use it but occasionally to test a self made cable or check one that may be suspect. Seems to be on constantly, contains small circular batteries and have tried to remove just one in order to save on battery life. Any help?

REPLACE BATTERY CABLES THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE COULD BE SHORTING TO GROUND.REPLACE STARTER SOLENOID IF NOT BEEN REPLACED.BESURE TO PLACE BACK FLEXIBLE CONDUIT THAT GOES AROUND POSITIVE BATTERY KEEP FROM SHORTING TO GROUND. LAST TIME I SEEN BATTERY CABLES OVER HEAT WAS EITHER STARTER AND SOLENOID SHORTING OUT OR VERY LOOSE BATTERY CABLES CONNECTIONS. REPLACE BATTERY CABLES IF THEY ARE MELTED HAVE STARTER CHECKED OUT YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY STARTER STILL.

My drive has power but the icon for it does not appear in the My Computer screen


...Power and data cables, you mean(two - both), Are your drive formatted?(New drives unformatted!).
First, restart your comp, after keyboard flashing, press DEL or F2 and start BIOS, All BIOSes are various, search byself in all menues/buttons Onboard IDE and SATA controllers configuration. All of them must be switched on(on diag time) and it's disk types must be AUTO, and large/LBA mode auto too(after change this param drive must be remapped and re-formatted with full lost of data). Also in ADVANCED submenu I recommend switch off quick self-test(POST). F10 to save changes and if all proper, BIOS must identify disk on boot screen.If boot screen splashed too quickly, go back to BIOS and look for disk parameters. If name of drive here is correct, and drive's geometry seems true, all is OK. If Win or other OS don't see this drive in DEVICE MANAGER/disc drives, then seems you obtain a non-standard device that require model-specific driver from manufacturer.
If drive exist in DEVICE MANAGER/disc drives, but OS don't draw it's partitions in My Comp, then it improperly formatted(part of RAID or virtual partition, or for other OS).Then it's need to new partitioning and formatting(All data become lost).

If BIOS don't see drive, something fail - Mboard, cables, or drive himself. There is one way to half-check drive without Mboard and cables. Plug it to power only, take him in hands, move it to your ear and turn on power switch. First you must listen increasing spindle noise, and after 1-10 sec from one to three head turns.( Modern drives has a noise protection,and sounds are quiet).If sounds differ from this, drive is bad. If heads turns more then 3 times, drive is near to death(half-year max), but still works. If heads don't sounds - drive's board is bad. If heads turns continuously - them or plates's surface are bad.Go to repair or drop off.
Described listening procedure is a self-test of drive and gives 90% sureness of it's goodness. Then try replug cables and test another drive instead for Mboard check. Somebody talks that latest drives don't work with old Mboards, but I never saw this.

Hard to tell without testing different sensors.
Try having the throttle position sensor and/or the egr valve checked, one might be at fault. If both ok, further testing will need to done.

APC passes its self test but no backup


More than likely it is the battery. These units simply test the voltage during the self test, and, although not typical, the battery voltage could be good without a load, but fail with a load. 3 years is generally the life span of SLA batteries. Replacement batteries are fairly inexpensive and can be found at: http://batteryinternational.com/ups-batteries-apc-batteries.html

Starting problems


Did you bench test the old starter? Did you bench test the new starter?
the battery may appear to be good, but try jumping it with another battery.
check the cables.
use a set of jumper cables to bypass the battery cables, this is a quick way to trouble shoot the cables.
hook red to the start solenoid an black to the engine block.

Try these and let us know how you make out
hope this is of some help.

My psp battery loses power "quickly" and charges very slow....


How old is your battery? You may want to think about buying a new one as it may be on it's way out. Even if it is fairly new you might have a lemon of a battery. It happens at times. IF your psp is new and your battery is doing this you should contact sony and see if they can replace your battery for free or a nominal charge.

HP LaserJet 2430n occasionally prints goblety-gook


ISSUE: When printing from the computer, you receive a line of garbage or all of the printed output comes out on one line. SOLUTION: See the following:
  1. Perform a self-test to be sure that the HP LaserJet printer is functioning properly. If the self-test is not correct, remove all cables and accessories (if any) and print a self-test again. If the self-test is still not correct, service the printer. If the self-test is correct, go to the next step.
  2. Reseat or replace the cable. Check the cable for bends or pressure applied by objects resting on the cable. A faulty cable or cables that do not meet the IEEE-1284 Standard can cause print defects by distorting signals.
