Hi, there is nothing more aggravating than having your household appliances not work.
Like a computer, the "thermostat" (it holds the batteries) retains the information you program (maybe the technician) to set the temperature controls.
The highs and lows can normally be bypassed with the push of a button.
Removing the batteries clears the memory. (Volatile memory).
When this happens, you must reprogram the thermostat so it knows what settings to operate at.
Can you get the instructions on how to program the thermostat? The instructions are usually on a paper on the thermostat lid.

(when changing batteries, remove one battery, then put a new one in its place before removing the next one. This keep some power to prevent the settings from being cleared.

2008 acura mdx won't start

First, have Autozone verify the battery is indeed good. THEN, The only way i have found battery loads when the car is off is to put an ampmeter in-line with the battery while the car is NOT running and the key is OFF. Be careful to not overload meter. no lights should be on. Yeah, that means the doors must be closed. If load is low, but in meter range, have someone look at meter while removing one fuse at a time. Put each fuse back in before going to the next one. Log amp reading for each fuse that makes the meter change. I would be looking for a load above 100ma or 0.1 amp.

Turn the thermostat to fan only and insure you get air blowing through the registers or feel air pulling in at the return air. If YES then make sure you have the thermostat programmed correctly to call for cooling when set to auto! Also the start/run capacitor may be failed out side at the condensor unit. They are cheap to replace but dangerous to handle so becareful. If NO then you are not getting signal to the blower and may have a failed transformer that converts 120v to 24v for the thermostat controls. Also double check your breakers in your service panel to see if they tripped for some reason. A failing or weak breaker can cause this symptom aswell!

Hi I have a Mini One, yesterday and tonight when I

hi it sounds like the engines electric cooling fan has automatically come on as the engine has got hot enough for it to be cooled down
you may have never noticed it before .
check your coolant level and your oil level to be on the safe side and keep an eye on the temperature gauge the fan should come on when the gauge goes past normal running teperature if its coming on a lot there may be a problem but its probably working as normal

Zoom lense going in and out when turned on

Try taking the batteries out and plugging it in. If it powers on, put fresh batteries in and try again off the AC. Once it's powered up from the AC, unplug it and see if it stays on. If it does, try restarting it. Good luck.
