Question about Dell Latitude D410 Notebook

1 Answer

Lack of power

I have just bought a re-furbished machine. It did not come with a user manual. I plugged it into the mains supply and switched it on. the Windows screen came on and it worked for about two minutes before warning me to save my work because the battery was critically low. I could not understand why that matters if it is plugged in to the mains. A few seconds later, it switched off and I cannot switch it back on.

Any advice please?

The DC jack is probably at fault. Moving it in and out and back and fourth may get you a temporary supply of power to charge you back up. The DC jack is a common fault and since your's is a refurbished unit, it may still be under warranty. So if you can get it going by playing with the jack, then you may have a proper fix if it's still has a warranty. Otherwise you may be able to fix it yourself. The power supply could also be the fault, and metering the voltage can tell you if that's the problem.
Try the above suggestions and report back so we can help you further.
Good luck.

My whirlpool washing machine power supply not showinhg and when switched on it dost not switch on


Possible that you need to check from the main power switch. Check the power supply outlet, check the power plug to the mains wire to the washer's program controller unit. If there is power till the power supply on the washer then there is failure within the unit and needs a change. Estimate and Confirm

Don't waste any time on this. Being only 4 months old, it should still be under warranty. Request warranty service or exchange. The power supply module has a problem or the main processing board is telling the power supply to shutdown. In either case, a board change is necessary and should be covered.

I HAVE A CANON IR 3300 MACHINE I HAVE ERROR E00000-000


WHAT: Either the main thermistor doesn't attain 30?C 1 second after the power switch is activated or it doesn't attain 70?C 2 seconds thereafter.

WHY: It has a faulty fixing film unit, lack of connectivity with the main thermistor, lack of connectivity with the fixing heater, a faulty main power supply PCB, or the DC controller PCB is faulty.

NOTE: You can reset the error by performing the following in service mode: COPIER>FUNCTION>CLEAR>ERR.

CONNECTOR FIX: Make sure that the connector of the fixing assembly is seated.
A. main power supply PCB (J8) relay connector heater
B. DC controller PCB (J320) relay connector thermistor

FIXING FILM UNIT (THERMISTOR) FIX: With a multimeter, check the interval between pin 1 & pin 2 & between pin 3 & pin 4 of the connector (4-pin) of the thermistor for electrical continuity. A result of ?? means that the circuit is open (lack of connectivity). Resolve this by replacing the fixing film unit.

MAIN POWER SUPPLY PCB, DC CONTROLLER PCB FIX: Press the Start key. If the drive voltage of the heater is supplied by the connector J8 of the main power supply PCB, then the main power supply PCB should be replaced. If not, then the thermistor control mechanism is faulty & the DC controller PCB should be replaced. Use the following to ascertain this:
Main heater: between J8-1 (FSR1) & J8-5 (FSR COM)
Sub heater: between J8-3 (FSR2) & J8-5 (FSR COM)

My t3065 e machine was powered down manually 1 week ago when I got back to it to turn it on nothing happens, the power cord and wall plug are fine


Perhaps during the interlude that the eMachines wasn't being used, there was a power outage, or lightning struck nearby.

The first hardware component that I would check, would be the Power On switch, and Power Supply.

Bypass the Power On switch to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If bypassing turns the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power On switch.

If bypassing does Not turn the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power Supply.

Inside the plastic Power On button, is a Power On switch.
It is a Momentary Contact Switch.

Below is one example of a Power On switch, I have found to fit many computers.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Bypassing is done with a jumper wire, inserted into the back of the 20/24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

The jumper wire Briefly, touches the Soft Power On wire (Green) terminal down in the connector, and ANY Ground terminal. (Black)

I listed 20/24-pin above, because I don't know if the T3065 uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

Below is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's corresponding connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

The photo all the way to the Right, shows the back of the connector.
It is plugged into the motherboard.

The Front of the connector is plugged into the female socket on the motherboard.
The Back of the connector is shown, and this is the area the power wires go down into.

Here you can see the green Soft Power On wire.
ANY of those Black wires are Ground wires.

I have Not detailed this procedure yet.

Do Not attempt it until I do.

I want to know first, if you are interested in doing the procedure, and will also outline any safety issues involved.

WorkCentre M20i will not power on


Most likely on this machine the Low voltage power supply is out.
Before ordering parts, check the back of the power supply to make sure the connectors, 110 volt on the back of the plug have not slipped off. Sometimes they are not slipped on the connector very good and come off. Also, make sure the switch is good, sometimes these switches are just mechanically bad inside.
Disconnect the power and disconnect the main motor plugs, power back on the machine and see if the machine at least comes on, even with an error messege on the console. Sometimes a bad main motor will cause the main board to drain power.

Also, make sure before ordering this power supply, the correct part is ordered for this model machine.
Let us know what you find, just becareful with the power plug in the machine when working in the electrical circuits. Unplug the copier when needed.

This is an Irish Machine and all i get is a slow green blinking light, no noise, no movement so I wondered if it was because of the power supply


The mains voltage is different. If the desktop has a switch mode power supply that has a mains voltage selector switch, then switch it to 110 volts and it will work, but if it doesn't then you need to purchase a switch mode power supply and install it in your computer, make sure it matches the total wattage or higher than the old power supply.
The monitor usually don't have a switchable voltage, you most likely need to buy a new monitor or use an existing one.
