    We have the same problem. It was making a loud rattling noise, so we tried to fix it, now it just says EE and won't turn on. Help!

    I have exactly the same problem. It shows EE on the display but won't turn on. Doesn't matter if you try to change mode, etc.

It's probably the control board inside the control panel. I had the same problem and it moisture shorted out the board. You can order a new one from Sears Parts for about $45

This worked, but it's not pretty--

I have an Admiral window A/C unit that did the same thing three years ago--EE and no operation. Technicians told me it was the control circuit board. I ordered another board from Sears but Admiral apparently doesn't make this model's replacement board. I was told to throw the A/C unit away and get another! It's was only five years old at the time and had only been used for two years.

Undaunted, I took the front off (ALWAYS UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST) and looked for obvious problems then reassembled it. It work for about ten seconds and then went to EE. I figured the control board was overheated and I drilled vent holes in the front panel. I can't say this is what fixed it but it worked the rest of the year and right up until yesterday when it went back to EE and no operation. If you think my first solution was tacky, read on.

I unplugged the unit and pulled the front off. I removed the plastic cover to the control circuit board and unscrewed the circuit board from this plastic cover--everything was hanging out in the open. I depressed the control circuit board's on/off microswitch then re-plugged the wall plug. The EE light didn't come on for about ten seconds. I try different combinations of unplugging the cord, holding down the on/off microswitch and replugging. (I have time on my hands). I finally found that by replugging the wall cord while holding down the on/off microswitch and quickly tapping the fan speed microswitch I could get the A/C unit to cycle continuously through it's functions while flashing an 88 at the end of each cycle. I let it cycle for about ten minutes then unplugged the AC wall plug. I re-plugged the wall plug. It now works like it should (no need to hold the on/off microswitch). It's been running for an hour now. All the wiring is still hanging out and the plastic front pieces are on the floor but I can live with that. All the control panel functions work as they shoud, I just have to reference the plastic cover sitting next to A/C unit. "Easy Peasy," as Groucho used to say.

I'd say, "Kids, don't try this at home," but.....

No spark

I would first look to make sure the spark plug is not wet. Dry the end of the plug and the cap; a q-tip should work just fine. At this time look to make sure neither end is rusty. In the future my dad keeps a large pail inverted over the motor of his mower and leaves it out all winter (in the snow and rain). He has done this for many years.

My gameboy got rained on it wont charge at all moved lost it and found it all wet it dry now but no lights or any thing can you please help

Hi there!
Unfortunately gaming consoles are not meant to survive getting wet, the electrical parts inside are most likely experiencing water damage and are beyond repair. Your best bet is to try to find a used console, you can find used GBAs for very cheap on sites like Craigslist, E-bay, Amazon, or at local stores like Gamestop or Hastings.
Hope this helped!

2002 Chevy Blazer won't start after it rains

Porous ignition wires can do that..especially when they are damp....too much power is lost to ground on the way to the plugs while cranking. as you release the key, power to the starter is cut, supplying a bit more voltage to the coil, not turning quickly enough, the spark pushes the engine backwards a bit.

Inputing Scientific Numbers

If you mean using the "EE" key it's straightforward.

To enter scientific numbers, enter the number, then press EE, then the exponent value. The TI-30XA will stay in scientific display until you "clear" or turn it off. It will also switch to scientific notation if you multiply big numbers that exceed the display.

E.g. Input 3, EE, 10, X, 3, EE, 10, =, gives you the answer 9 times 10 to the power 20. Press the "square root" key and you will get back 3 times 10 to the power 10.

You can mix entries too, e.g. 3, EE, 10, X, 2, =, gives you 6 times 10 the power 10....
