This seems to be a typical problem that is affecting the motherboard of the 290. Try to reset the bios using the Jumper J1 situated under the memory modules in the memory expansion bay. Just short circuit the J1 pin with a screwdriver for few seconds and the bios will be resetted. This procedure have been reported to work sometimes. If nothing is changed, then usually substition of motherboard is required.

Hello! I have a Samsung UN40H5203AFXZA (version TD01) that won't turn on. Now I just get a flashing red light. Would the BN44-00769A power board be the correct replacement part?


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

We leave our computer turned on at night but we turn off the monitor. The last two weeks when we have turned on our monitor in the morning it will show the desktop but when we move the mouse the monitor...


Yes. Do not turn the monitor off by its power switch, let the computer do the work for you. Alot of times when people use the power switch to turn off the monitor, the computer sees that all of a sudden the monitor has been disconnected from the pc. when that happens the pc sees it as a device beimg unplugged and removes that certain device from the pc's list of things that should be connected, and when you turn it back on the pc sees it again and starts loading drivers for that new part(monitor)

Will not focus


First Send me your camera's model (Brand Name)

Some digital and analog camera in these days has features to manualy set the focus in our wish.
Try to disable this feature. And try not to poke or push the lens of the camera. By doing this you may destroy the lens.

And try to reformet the mem stick + try to reset the camera.
(Everything will be resetted, "it will be as if you have a new camera")
