How to fix non responsive keys on a panasonic nn-sd297s microwave ?


The problem is most likely an improper connection between the new board and the control panel. Most microwave ovens use a locking connector for this cable, and most use the type that has a sliding collar on the connector box. To unlock it, you have to pull the collar up, away from the board, about 2-4 millimeters (be careful not to pull unevenly or so hard you break the collar past its stops). Then the cable slides out easily. To install, slide the cable in and push the collar down around it until it locks in place - you'll feel it click when it does, and the cable will then be hard to remove.

If you pull out a locked cable, you will probably damage it. Fortunately, on your model, it's a separate piece (E4) rather than a permanent part of the control panel.

There are some models that use a friction-fit cable. These have no collar or other latching mechanism on the connector, and the end of the cable has a reinforcing tab on it so it won't buckle or tear upon insertion or removal.

Your next step is to unplug the cable and inspect it to make sure you didn't dog-ear a corner (WAIT - don't forget to make sure the oven is unplugged!). Clean the contacts on the cable with a clean, soft white pencil eraser (the red erasers are a bit too hard and abrasive). If the cable is of the friction fit type, look into the connector shell and estimate how far in the cable needs to go - if necessary, make a target mark on the cable with a fine felt-tip marker. Insert the cable, being careful not to crinkle the corners with off-center misalignment, and close the locking mechanism if present.

While you're at it, double check the other connectors to make sure they're properly seated. If they have latches on the side, make sure the latches are engaged - this guarantees full seating.

Tip

Dealing with optical cables


One of the most important tips when dealing with optical cables, is to clean the optical connectors, it has been noticed that connectors are the most common source for optical links failure, the simplest way to clean an optical connector is to use a tool called "one click cleaner", the same is called "IBC brand cleaner" for other manufacturers.

Skimatice for hard drive connections


Schematic

The eMachines T6532 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the KN8GM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

[ http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130041 ]

The MSI motherboard has provisions for using, EITHER an
IDE (PATA) harddrive, or a SATA harddrive. (Or more than one)

Two different technologies.
I will explain both, using an IDE (PATA) harddrive,
OR;
Using a SATA harddrive;

On the MSI Support page above, click on the Download tab.
(Overview / Specifications / Download / Support / etc)

In the drop down list click on - Manual

Language > English > 7.1MB > E7207v2.0.zip
Click on the blue E7207v2.0.zip

On the next page click on the country name nearest yours.
A small window will come up -
Opening E7207v2.0.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; Left-click in the small circle to the left of Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on OK

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to download ALL the way, then DOUBLE-click right on it.

In the next small window go to the far left, and click on -
Extract all files.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last small window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(7207v2.0(G52-M7207X5) next to the red Adobe PDF icon)

There is the Motherboard Manual

The MS-7207 has two IDE slots;

IDE 1, which is Yellow in color, and close to the outside edge of the motherboard.
Should have IDE 1 silkscreened on the motherboard, below it.

IDE 2 is Yellow in color also, and right next to IDE 1.

(IDE 2 is in-between IDE 1 and the Ram Memory slots.
The Purple, Slot 4, ram memory slot to be specific. {DIMM 4 )

IDE 1 is used for an IDE harddrive.
IDE 2 is used for an IDE optical drive.

TWO IDE harddrives can be put on a single flat ribbon IDE cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_cables.jpg

NOTE that there are two styles of IDE flat ribbon cables;
40-wire cable,
OR;
80-wire cable.

BOTH have 40 socket holes in their connectors.
(ONLY 39 are used, so one hole May, or May Not be blocked off)

How to connect to a 40-wire IDE cable, or an 80-wire IDE cable,

http://www.mikeshardware.com/howtos/howto_connect_ide_hd.html

An IDE cable usually has a Locating Lug on it's connectors, in the middle of the connector; and on one side,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PATA-cable.jpg

Here you see the Locating Lug as being two separate 'ridges'.
Some styles the Locating Lug is single block.

The motherboard connector has a matching Cutout on one side.
The Locating Lug lines up with the cutout when installing the cable.

The Harddrive, and optical drive (CD/DVD drive), will have a cutout on their circuit boards.

There are 40-pins. (Only 39 are used if so)
One of them is the number 1 pin.
The IDE cables are plugged into the motherboard, with number 1 pin lining up with number 1 wire, in the IDE cable.

Same when the IDE cable is plugged into a Harddrive, or optical drive.

IF, there is no Locating Lug on the IDE cable;
Look for the faint RED stripe, on the side of the IDE cable.
Number 1 wire is on the same side, as the faint Red stripe.

When plugging into a motherboard, Number 1 pin is on the Bottom.
The faint red stripe on the cable, goes towards the BOTTOM of the motherboard.
(Motherboard installed in computer case)

When plugging into a Harddrive, or optical drive; the faint red stripe ALWAYS goes toward the power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

This shows you the Back of an IDE (PATA) harddrive, and the power cable used for it.
If -> No Locating Lug on IDE cable, the faint Red stripe goes towards the power cable.

This is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.
Note when installing the rounded corners ALWAYS goes UP.

[This power cable is frequently, and erroneously; referred to as a 'Molex' power cable.
Molex was just the first manufacturer of the power cable CONNECTOR. Name STUCK.

Kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench, a 'Crescent wrench ]

A SATA power cable is used for a SATA harddrive, or SATA optical drive,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

There is an L-shape in the SATA power cable's connector.
It matches an L-shape on the Harddrive, or optical drive.

Between a SATA power cable's connector, and a SATA data cable's connector; a SATA power cable connector is the LARGER of the two.
A SATA power cable has 15-contact pins.
A SATA data cable has 7-contact pins.

A SATA power cable's connector may have a LOCK on it.
Usually a Tab, or 'bulb' type affair.
It is pressed down with the thumb when installing, or removing the SATA power cable.

This is a general example of a SATA data cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_Data_Cable.jpg

Now you can see the L-shaped opening a little better, that both the SATA data cable have, and the SATA power cable, has.

In the photo the SATA data cable's connector, is a 90 degree bent Elbow.
This style of connector is usually used on the Harddrive, or on the optical drive.

A Straight connector style is usually used for the Motherboard.
However, you can use a SATA data cable, that has a Straight connector on both ends.

Looking at your motherboard, installed in a computer case; there are 2 SATA connectors on the motherboard.

(CAN, be up to FOUR)

I see one motherboard reference where they (2) are Orange in color, (Newegg), and the motherboard manual shows them (2) to be Purple in color.

They are located towards the Bottom/Right corner of the motherboard.
Above the CMOS battery.

The SATA connector that is closest to the Outside edge of the motherboard, is SATA1 (SATA 1)

The Harddrive plugs into SATA 1.

An optical drive that is SATA, will plug into the SATA2 connector.
To the Left of the SATA1 connector.

KNOW THIS;

DOES NOT MATTER, which SATA connector you plug the Harddrive, or optical drive; into.

The beauty of SATA, is that you can plug the Harddrive or optical drive into ANY SATA connector, (On ANY motherboard), and BIOS will find those devices.

BIOS looks FIRST, to see which drive has the Operating System on it. (Windows)
THAT, is the Harddrive.

After finding the drive with the O/S on it, then BIOS will find all the other drives. Removable, or not.

So there you have it. A lot of reading.
You need a power cable, and a data cable to the Harddrive.
Same thing for the optical drive/s.

To have me clarify anything I have stated above, please post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do I connect another optical drive along side a current one on wst3500?


Desktop motherboards usually have two IDE controller connections, a Primary one and a Secondary one.
The hard drive is attached to the Primary IDE connector and the hard drive has the jumper set to Master and the hard drive is normally connected to the last connector on the IDE data cable. There is a second connector on the same cable and if a optical drive is connected to this cable then the jumper on this optical MUST be set as a Slave drive.
If you connect the second optical on an IDE cable that is connected to the Secondary IDE controller and it is the only drive on this cable then the jumper on the optical drive can be set to either Master or Slave. If there is another drive on this IDE cable the they cannot be set with the same setting.

Replaced the bulbs and checked fuse but the brakelights fail to work. Could it be a switch.


Yes, it could be the switch behind your brake pedal.

  1. Remove the driver's side instrument panel trim panel/sound insulator.
  2. Detach the switch electrical connector.
  3. Remove the switch from the retainer by grasping it, turning the switch 90° counterclockwise, and pulling it toward the rear of the car.

082d67c.gif
The brake light switch (3) is mounted on the brake pedal support (1) and secured with a retainer (2)

To install:
  1. Insert the brake light switch into the retainer until the switch body seats on the retainer.
  2. Pull the brake pedal upward against the internal pedal stop.
  3. Turn the switch 90° clockwise in order to lock it into position.

NOTE Proper switch adjustment is achieved when no clicks are heard as the pedal is pulled upward and when the brake lights do not stay on without brake application.


  1. Attach the switch electrical connector and test the switch for proper adjustment.
  2. Adjust the brake light switch, as follows:
    1. Detach the switch electrical connector.
    2. Remove the switch from the retainer by turning it counterclockwise 45°, and pulling it toward the rear of the car.
    3. Insert the switch into the retainer until the switch bottoms out against the brake pedal and the switch actuator button is fully depressed.
    4. Snap the switch into the retainer by turning it clockwise 45° until a click is heard.
  3. Attach the switch electrical connector.
  4. Install the hush panel/sound insulator.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Can't connect Digital Optical Audio cable to receiver


The TOSLINK optical connector is almost aquare and should be the same on both blue-ray and on the receiver. There are 4 orientation you can try and only one fits. Blue-ray can have the connector installed rotated, but it should be the same connector.
http://gallery.techarena.in/data/513/thumbs/Toslink-and-Coaxial-Connectors.jpg
Looking at the cable at Amazon I can see that it is the correct cable. If it really doesn't fit, maybe you have damaged cable or damaged connector. Try the other end of the cable and/or other optical input on the receiver.
BTW there is also combined analog/optical jack connector. It looks like normal jack socket, but accepts also optical signal. But this is not called Toslink and usually is not used in home theatre devices.

Wont work


Dear Mitodelvalle,
Here are few things that you might want to check:
  1. Open the chassis of the computer and make sure that the cables that go to the drive are properly connected .. there should be 2 connectors.. One for Power supply with 4 wires and one is a ribbon cable for data. Make sure that the power supply cable is properly connected. you might want to remove and plug it back just to be sure.
  2. If that doesn't work then most of the computers come with a spare power connector hanging loose, you might want to try the spare connector.
  3. Try ejecting the optical drive by inserting pin in to the small hole in the front of the optical drive, just below the tray... Straighten a paper clip and insert it straight into the pin hole below the optical drive's tray and the drive should eject, then pull the trey out gently with your hand and make sure that nothing is broken inside...
Try the above steps and that should help. If you still need assistance, please let me know and I would be glad to assist you further.

Regards,
Srinivas.
