Check the power switch on the power supply - should be located close to the power cord entry. Place in the '1' position for ON. The '0' position is OFF.

I have a compaq 6820,s and it won't power up, i get nothing, no screen, sound power, nothing at all. I change the power cord and nothing happen. So could anyone out there help me please?

Try reseating the RAM modules, If this does not work then the RAM maybe faulty. Remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If the RAM is faulty them it needs to be replaced.

My viewsonic vx1940w monitor won't turn on. There's no lights or anything. The outlet it's plugged into is working because I tried another device in the same outlet. My settings didn't...

I had two ViewSonic's that did the same thing right around 2 year as well. They worked really well for me and then just died.
I found out the first one had a faulty power cord, and the second one just wouldn't turn on at all.
I think there's a good chance that your monitor bit the big one just based on my experience with the brand. I would recommend taking it in to your local computer repair shop and let them take a look at it. If it is 2 years old then it is probably out of the manufacturer's warranty unfortunately. I hope this helps answer your question :(
Thanks for using FixYa.

My washing machine won't star

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a washer that won't start, here are some probable causes to your problem. First, make sure to check your breaker box for a tripped breaker. If nothing is tripped, you will want to make sure the washer is getting power first. You need to check the wall outlet and the power cord. You can properly test both of them with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting correct power. Wiggle the cord and see if you can get it started. You could have a break or loose wire in the cord causing your washer to not start. If it starts, you still need to change out the power cord. If the outlet is not getting power, you will need to conduct a test on that to determine the cause. You may have a bad wire or a loose wire. If you have power to the outlet and cord, make sure your fuse has not blown. You need to check your timer switch next. It may be bad or not working properly. Refer to your manual for the correct procedure. Try the washer on different cycles to see if it will start. It is possible that you have a bad lid switch. It can cause the washer to not start if it is bad. You could have a defective motor as well. If the motor has not been working correctly or making noises and other sounds, there is a good chance it has finally died out. Always make sure that the part is getting power before you change it. A voltage meter is an ideal tool to keep around the house. If a part is not getting power, even with a new part, it will not work. Make sure you test everything before making a decision. Always determine the cause by testing and not guessing.

Hi there. My TV won't power up. I have tried the outlet and changing out the power cord but nothing works. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Your power supply is probably bad if it wont turn on at all. If you have a vizio this is especially common and is known as the "pop of death". You will have to take it to a local repair shop or contact the manufacturer or reseller if its in warranty.

My Lexmark x9350 only turns on and off if I plug and unplug...

This, probably, is a power issue on the printer. Unplug the printer from the computer. Unplug the power supply from the printer (it's the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Try not to use any power strips or extensions for the power cord. If possible, plug the power cord straight to the wall outlet. With the power cord plugged in straight to the power outlet, plug the power supply back in the printer. That should refresh the printer. When everything's powered on, plug printer to computer. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

My notebook refuses to turn on, i've switch outlets, double check that all connections are curretly connected, I've taken the battery off waited a few then put it back on - but still nothing, it just wont...

There are a few possible causes.
  • Your computer is coming on, but your screen is out and you just cant tell. You should see light come on and hear a few noises from the cd drive and hard drive.
  • Your power supply is bad (the corded thinggy)
  • Your battery is bad and has damaged the cord too.
  • The plug in the back of the computer is damaged (Possibly from a bad battery melting the connector)
  • You computer has lightning/surge damage and is just broken
  • The motherboard has failed completely
First, test the simple things.
  1. Remove your battery and try to start with only the cord.
  2. Check the plug that the power supply plugs into. Is it loose does it wiggle? It may need replaced/repaired
  3. Plug the power cord back in and wiggle do any of the light flicker? This may confirm step 2.
  4. Take your computer to a simple repair shop and see if they have a power supply you can try. REMOVE your battery first. If it works, great! Get the power supply.
  5. If none of these are the problem, leave the computer at the repair place for them to look at. There are a few other problems, but you probably cant check those yourself.

No power to pc

You possibly have a bad AC cord, AC input port on the computer, or a bad circuitry.

The first step is to try the cord in a different outlet. If unsuccessful, change the cord to a new cord.

If unsuccessful, make sure that the ac input port on the computer is secure and not able to be moved when plugging in the power cord.

The next step after that would be to open up the computer to check circuitry and wiring. I would highly recommend that if you are not a professional to take it to a computer repair shop to diagnose and fix.

I hope this was helpful.
