Had the same problem with my 420 CN. The only way I got it to work again was to unplug from power bar and plug directly into wall. Machine powered 4 seconds after I plugged it in. I hope it works for you too.

La cimbali m1 machine won't heat up

No heat can mean one or more problems. A few checks can help keep your service expense down. Check power to machine; breaker tripped? Is it plugged in COMPLETELY? Digital displays also have programmable on/off times (some include the days of the week). Time and day/date set correctly? Multi turn selector switch broken or loose? Tank filled properly? (Site glass showing water at correct levels?). A qualified technician can check the heater overheat thermostat (or thermal fuse). Broken heater elements or wires. Pressure gauge. Tank overflow safety switch. And finally blown digital power switch, coil contactors, power board, and main PC Mother board. There may be other problems but these are the most often occurring in order of severity (and expence)

Power on a hp mother board

As a student of electronics, you would be a better judge of the worth of the Laptop Parts in YOUR hands. As a project in what you can make work from parts , why not. As a workable, useful machine , doubtful. Ask yourself, Is it a project, and you have access to Misc. computer parts that will fit this or do I have to invest Time and Money , and end up with nothing but a jumble of broken computer parts. Do your self a favor, List the working Spare Parts on Ebay, make a few bucks and 1, Have a few beers, 2, Save the money towards buying a good used computer.

My toshiba PSAgou laptop won't turn on

That is a common problem with the Toshiba. The center pin tends to get broken off. I have had to repair them by either installing a new mother board, or removing the mother boars and soldering in a new power port.

My computer won't turn on.It's a CompaqSR1820nx

Check if the power supply its working use a multimeter. If it is check all the wires. If you see there's no problem with them maybe the mother board got broken. You can replace it, it's such an easy job.

I cant turn it on

If you have just installed a new mother board, refer to your manual and double check your connections for pwr switch. If this is a machine you've had for a while and it just stopped powering up then your power supply is probably broken.

Mother Board

You win. Most GE side by side refrigerators have an electronic mother board.
Data is feed to it from 5 thermistors, 2 in the freezer and 3 in the fresh food compartment.
In turn the motherboard takes that varying information from the thermistors and controls all functions in the machine.
