what do you eman CUTS OFF,, it shuts down by itself ?
if so, perhaps the AC adapter is not good any longer which would result in unchaRGED BATTERY.

    Actually you can be online or working on something and it just cuts off, not like cycling down when you shut it down.. it just cuts off. I can unplug the adapter and the screen gets a little darker, but it is still on, so I dont' think it's an uncharged battery.

    well, when you unplug the AC adapter, and the screen faints into ligher mode, thats normal because it is running off the battery source which means the system defaaults to energy saving mode.

    thats neither here nore there.. we must try to figure out why the system "cuts off", but what exactly is your definition of cutting off -- does it cut out and go into sleep mode perhaps ?

    have you tried going into control panel, power options -- see if you can adjust the power plan for your system. what OS are you using ?

    let me know -- i'd like to figure this out for you

Sharpening blades for qualcast 35s

With a cylinder mower the sharpness of the blade is only part of the concern. The fixed blade is like one of the blades of a pair of shears and each "blade" of the revolving cylinder acts as the other.

As long as only grass is being cut (no stones) the blades will last a long time with only occasional adjustment to the fixed blade as per instruction manual.
After much use or in case of damage the fixed blade will need replacing or sharpening. If it is badly worn it will need removing and sharpening by a specialist with the correct equipment but otherwise the light application of a file, stone or a patent sharpener and then readjust the blade per manual.

When eventually the cylinder becomes worn or sustains damage it must be removed and machine trued and sharpened using a lathe or similar.

An accurately sharpened cylinder and a true and sharp fixed blade correctly adjusted will consistently cut paper across the complete width of the blade when turned by hand. A competently sharped and adjusted cylinder mower will cut the thinnest tissue like the finest scissors without binding.

Why does the auto cut not work consistently on my Topaz 30 when embroidering

Where the cutter comes out notice carefully where the cutter lies. This place needs to have a piece of felt. Yours is worn out. You can fix it by glueing a new piece there.

I turn it on, but the screen stays blank and the fan starts blowing really hard, caps lock and other lights light up but my laptop doesn't start at all.

if this continues consistently you might be looking at a screen problem, take the system to a qualified laptop screen repairer to get it fixed.
hope this helps
