Hi We have an Acer T120 with a faulty power on off switch. The housing which sits under the switch on the front panel has broken. Do you know whether it is possible to buy a replacement part? Thanks Nick

Hi Jean,
I don't believe it would be economically viable for you to purchase the front panel which houses the on/off switch. This may prove costly.
I would rather look out for a new case with power supply and transfer your motherboard etc. to the new case.
You should be able to get a new case & power supply from your local PC shop for under $50.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

The power window switch on front passenger door "sunk" into the door panel


Either the switch has broken off its lugs to hold it into place or the panel that it sits in has broken. You will probably have to strip some of the door or the panel the switch sits in to get the switch back. Once you have determined what has broken off, go to a wrecker or a Dealer and buy a new part. There will be wiring on the back of that switch. If the connections are single wires, make close note of what wire goes where. If its a plastic multiplug connection, they will usually only fit one way.

My acer aspire zc 606 desktop will not turn on. I have tried unplugging power cord holding power button down for 45 secs. Is there anything else I can do?


First, you should remove the power cord from the PC before opening the side panel. Second, you should avoid static electricity by touching a bare metal part of the case before touching anything else in the computer. It's possible that the power on/off switch on the front panel of your PC is faulty. Inside the case on the motherboard you will find several wires coming from the front panel which connect to pins on the board. one wire is labeled PWR. Unplugging this wire reveals the pins which are very close together. Using a screwdriver to touch both pins at once will power the computer on. Of course, the power cord must be reattached in order for this trick to work so be extremely careful! If the PC is still under warranty then attempting to replace the on/off switch yourself may void the warranty.
The other possibility is that the power supply, or the cpu, or the motherboard itself is faulty. In this case, take it to a computer repair shop.

Pc wont power down


Sounds like a software application is not allowing machine to shut down. Try using the task manager to shut down all applications and processes manually, then try the shutdown option. If this works you will have to go through software apps one by one until you find the culprit. Hope this helps.

Power cord broken inside s251i miele How do i open the s251i ????


HOW TO OPEN MIELE 251 VACCUUM: 1-Unplug from wall and disconnect power cord 2-Remove black switch panel at back of top panel: A-Use Phillips screwdriver, remove two silver screws visible between back of hinged top door and front of black switch panel
B-Push back of the panel down while pushing it forward (towards front of machine). There are two plastic notches and clips which are tightly fit together that you need to separate.
Once it releases, push it a bit more towards the front of the machine and lift off panel. It has wires connecting it to the main body so it will not remove completely.
C-Be careful not to lose the springs that simply sit inside of two plastic channels, one under each of the two switches. These are required for your witches to operate properly.
3-Locate screw at bottom of deep rectangular hole now revealed (under former location of black switch panels). Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 4-Open hinged top panel. Locate two silver screws, one on each side of main housing. Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 5-This will let you lift off the whole top assembly, door and main housing, revealing the plastic chassis and the motor unit within.
You now have access to the motor, wiring connector harnesses, circuit board and the cord reel.
