Unplugged it. After looking for a new tv online I decided to try getting it to work. So, plugged it back in and held down the power button, a red light came on, held down the power button again and an orange light came on, held down power button again and green light came on and tv powered on. This was simply a case of trial and success!

unplug, hold power button, plug in. If that doesn't work, unplug all the HDMI cables, unplug the power, hold power button, plug back in.

My paperwhite kindle does not come on

Try a reboot. Unplug it from any power source, press and hold the power button for a full 30 seconds. Set it down, and leave it alone for 5 minutes. If that hard reboot does not help, Use the Help link at the top of the page to contact Amazon Kindle CS and talk with them about it - use the live chat or the call back feature.

Maytag refrigerator MFI2568AES. "Change Filter" light will not turn off. Held down filter reset for 3 seconds - did not work. Held down the light and lock buttons for 3 seconds - did not work. Wha

Hello Don;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your filter reset is just a independent timer set for six months. It is not tied into your water filter. You should change your water filter when your water dispenser flow is slow and/or you start to get small ice cubes. Depending on the usage, your water filter can last 18-24 months or more.

Unplug your unit for about 10 minutes to let the unit power down, then plug it back in.

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on

you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

How do i reboot my hp c6180 printer

This seems to works for me and doesn't appear on the HP support site nor in the manual...

1. Power down the printer (use on/off button) and remove power cable. Wait 2 minutes.
2. Hold down Help and OK buttons together while plugging in the power cable.
3. I held the buttons for around 5 seconds and when I released them, the printer seemed to go back to a hard reset - all sorted!

Hope this helps!

Reset linksys router

General Linksys has a reset button on the back on the unit. Its really small and recessed into the unit. To cause the reset to happen do the following:

1 Get a pen/paperclip something small and pointy and hold down the reset button
2 after 20-30 seconds of holding button down you will notice a change in the lights in the front once you see this unplug the unit and wait 5 seconds.
3 Plug unit back in and you should be good to go

On some units if you enter into a web browser you can enter into the admin controls and do a restore to factory defaults and worse case if you need to you can flash the unit (this will also update the system to its latest firmware)

Replaced lamp in optoma ep1690 but there is not projection

Hello, many of times this is related to the brighter being turned down and we go about trying to turn up the unit thru the remote and you may need to do this adjustment directly from the panel on the unit.
If this should fail, you may need to unplug the unit and allow it to be off for over 24 hours and this will cause the unit memory to return back to the manufacture's settings and if you still get the same result, consider your lamp may have played out, need to be replace... good luck and I hope thi helps.
