Hi Jim,

Somthing in the transmitter has become thermally intermittant. I ran across these problems quite frequently on the bench and the best way to find the defective component is to use cicuit cooler on the individual parts until you hit the troublemaker. Of course you do this while the unit is on and connected to a signal source so that when it starts to work you'll know it. There are no voltages inside high enough to worry about. Does the light go off on the transmitter when it quits??

Acer AM1100-E1304a do not start.

Try removing the battery. It may be the battery is eating all the power that the supply can produce, leaving nothing to run the computer. That could happen with a shorted cell or a completely dead battery. IF the power supply you are using is the correct one for your laptop.

After a city power outage, when I boot up my PC with a ABIT-AG8 motherboard, I get two short alarm sounds and then the PC shuts down again.

It's HIGHLY likely that your power supply has bit the dust. Replacement power supplies range from $25-$200 (depending upon the wattage and number of outputs). Replacing them is fairly easy and instructional videoes on YouTube are likely numerous. It would take a fairly skilled person less than 20 minutes to change one. If you need further assistance with this let me know.

The server comes on for a mili second and recycles power does the same repeaditly, it was working fine all of a sudden poof it turns off no warning, i turned the swich off, and then back on it came on,...

The PSU , if it sees outputs dead or overloaded they all do that.

test the PSU unplugged with the power on pin jumpered
if voltages all pass tests and it stays on, it can be ok.
then find who on the MOBO end is shorted.
by removing things , like all HDD< and DVD or all things
but CPU.
even pull ram. all things in electronics can in fact short.

I unplugged my emachine desktop when i went on vacation and now after repluggging it is dead to the world?

Hello there:
This is fairly common on these e-machines
Normally what happens is that the silver coin sized cmos battery will drain down and when this does by default it shuts it'self completly down untill you replace the battery ill need to be replaced.
Now what you can try first is to unplug the power cord from the computer and open the case and look for the cord that goes from the power supply that connects to the mother board and unplug it now press in the power on button for 1 min and release and if you have a reset switch do the same thing than wait 5 minutes and then reconnect every thing and try the computer again and see if this will get the system going ok if not get the battery changed and also check out the power supply too to make sure that it is running if not than the power supply may be bad but i dont see why it would if it was running just fine before you unplugged the machine ok
Hope all of this is very helpful for you If so please rate this solution for me
Best regards

No power to the Wii

Yeah, it is sort of a common problem if you don't play your Wii much, simply unplug your power supply from the Wii, and the outlet, then wait a couple of minutes, and hook it back it, it should work then!

I have wireless speakers and the transmitter stopped working. Nothing happens when you plug it in--??? It's only a month old. AW872

Hi I also post in here , so that you can let me know how it goes.

Try unplugging the transmitter from power adapter, if it also has batteries remove them. Also unplug transmitter audio cable.

Then remove batteries/unplug adapters from speakers.

Wait few minutes and reconnect the system.

This is a proper hard reset, and can fix minor problems.

If when you re connect the transmitter does not glow, or you do not have sound on one or both channels then there is a fault.

Check the transmitter audio cable, a short in there can cause troubles.

If you find no problems , then unit is defective, as it is under warranty contact Acoustic Research to validate the warranty here and get the transmitter or the whole set replaced.
