Take off the plastic strip with the power button on it. It will pull up on the right side and snap up and off. Then try starting it by pushing the power button on the board. If you have to press this button hard then it's worn out and will have to be replaced. If you don't have to press hard then the power button in the plastic strip is worn and misaligned and the plastic strip needs to be replaced.

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on


try a hard reset

Dell Axim x50 / x50v / x51 / x51v:

Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.

IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.

My microwave won't heat


The real clue here is strangely enough the table not turning.

All units have a switch in the side (usually the right side) of the cabinet--when door is opened it allows the unit to work but will not heat or the table (usually both) will not work.

It has to be got at from the inside of the unit--little plastic holder with the switch which looks like a leaf switch.

What I have seen several times (including a unit I own) is that from countless opening and closing the door the holder may break or even melt and the contacts on the switch no longer are in position to work when door is open.

The purpose of such a switch is simple---it prevents the unit from being used if the door is OPEN.

Not a hard or expensive repair

The 'boost' button on my aqualisa digital shower won't switch off. It comes on when I press the shower on (without actually pressing the boost button) and when I press the boost button to try...


Good Morning drlesleyanne. The issue you describe will down to the PCB inside the push button controller. If this does not send the correct signal to the processor box it can cause the unit to 'fail safe' and this is why the unit needs a power reboot. The remedy to this is to replace the push button control itself and once installed should allow the shower to work correctly again. All our digital products have five year guarantees, so you can always call our Customer Service line on 01959 560010 and they will replace this for free.

Kind Regards,

My 1999 f250 brake lights do not work, but the turn signals do, and the tail lights do too, I put in a new brake light switch but there does not seem to be any power coming out of the switch


take the hazard button and tug and wiggle it real hard when pushing the brake pedal, if they start flickering, you will need a turn signal switch replaced.
