Female rejecting the male ... very common ...

Now for yor problem ... you have the incorrect power adapter ... voltage or amperage is not right for the drive. If this is new ... take it back and get the proper adapter. If it is not new ... check the voltage (ac or dc and amount) and the amps required ... go to Radio Shack or other electronics place and get what you need.

What should I do to make f-pin coax coupler I bought (to link two coax cables to extend the range of my cable box) receive and display cable programs?


Female to female couplers will only connect to a male plug either side. If the two plugs are female you won't be able to do it, till you either change to two males or get a male to male coupler!

Hello Woodnflies,

I understand that you need to rewire your pressure washer. I understand that you already have the switch wired and the motor wired as they are working. You need to power the pump that has a white (common) male and a black (hot) female. You what spade connections do you have open to connect too.

You should have a black and a white that have nothing attached to them this is where the pump wires are going to attache in the circuit.

Most commonly people would use a splitter cable with one male prong and two female prongs at the other end. These are "phono" or "rca" type plugs and the cheapest place to get them is a hardware store. Hope you understand my explanation. Good luck, Russmann.

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator with a 4prong 220v female plug on the power panel. My travel trailer has a 3 prong male plug. How can I convert my generator or is there an adapter that I can...


You do not want to convert anything to a 220 v connection !!!! Your RV is 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC.
Use a 30amp female to 15 amp male adapter to plug in to regular household receptacle on generator. Available at hardware store and RV stores.

Power cord will not light up where it is inserted into the laptop unless you hold it steady. It will not charge unless it is held in a certain position. Is the male part on the cord bad or is it the female...


You'll need to get another power cord that is identical in power and polarity and plug. One can buy a generic power supply from Walmart that will power most laptops or Radio Shack (Walmart is probably cheaper).

Once the new power supply is obtained, try it, and if the same thing happens, then the problem is in the female plug connection to the motherboard of the Compaq Presario C762NR Notebook.

The Notebook will have to be disassembled and the female plug connection to the motherboard will have to be replaced.

If the male plug end shows any fraying or excessive bending signs, then I would definitely replace the cord.

It is difficult to determine which is bad, the male or female part without changing the easiest part... the power supply.

Also, you could go to your local Compaq dealer and ask to plug in one of their power supplies to your computer and tell them the problem that you are having, determining which is bad, the male or female part of your power supply.

Good luck on this repair.

Where are the power sources on the GA-K8NF-9 motherboard


You can plug it onto another 3 prong plug on if there is one available on the motherboard. You can also buy little adapters that go from a 3 prong to a molex plug that you can hook to your power supply.
