If nothing is broken--

1. Make sure your batteries are NEW and or you use a separate 12 volt power pack.

2. The hand controller does a motor test when it powers up.

Apple iPad 2 16 wifi has a frozen message on the screen and I cant use it. Message says ''Not enough storage" with options to 'close' or 'settings' but neither responds.

Hold down the power/sleep and the home buttons until you see a white Apple logo in the center of the screen and then releases both buttons. If it allows you to operate the iPad at this point, go right to work deleting apps to free up some space!

Mercury outbord motor missing

First, you will get more response in the boat or outboard section of Fixya. You are listed under Cars and Trucks.

It will also help if you state the Year and size of the motor. If I remember correctly, some of the motors had screen filters for the fuel and some had individual feed lines to each cylinder.

Check your fuel lines so you know that you are not drawing air instead of fuel. Also if this is a 4 cycle motor, they had a low oil cutouts and they can work so fast that you would not detect a miss, just a drop of RPM.

Sparkplugs are reasonable, throw in a new set , keep the old ones for emergencies and see if that helps.

Relist in proper section if my solution does not work. Please rate.

Why em808vid touch pad is not response?

I've similar question. My ipod touch 2 screen is very finicky! It sometime responds just fine, but other times requires multiple taps before it does it's duty. Is there a fix for this? I have tried soft resets and recalibrating. The recalibration works fine, but I don't think it should have to be done daily which is about what I'm doing now. Is there another more permanent fix for this problem?

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

As you evaluate my advise. solutions and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew. I can only react to the information that you provide. So please judge my suggestions accordingly.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices. Diagnostic tools can be borrowed from AutoZone for FREE:
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent but remember that I can only work with the information initially provided..

Please don't even think about trying to disarm your anti-theft system because there is an easier solution. I'm assuming that you don't have the full Shop Service Manual. If you do, then you know that a shop manual costs at least $100.

So why did I say: Don't even think about it? Your anti-theft device is capable of causing problems that you don't want to deal with. If you have the dealer do the job, the cost can be prohibitive. The anti-theft device tells the on-board computer to shut off the fuel flow and to disengage the starter circuitry.

SOLUTION: Go on eBay and buy an anti-theft bypass module for $10-$20 depending on the year and make of your vehicle. It'll take you thirty minutes to install the device.

All the best

Some are professional and others (like me) learned by doing; I'm just an ordinary guy trying to assist others with their troubles on my day off from the regular job. We are all trying to help folks like you with your problems. I am not compensated in any way for this response to you - I am not an employee of You will have an opportunity to rate my response and of course you can rate this response high or low or in between.

Thank you and God Day.

What does no response 16 mean on a 8se nexstar telescope hand controller

This means that the hand control has lost communication with the electronics board within the base of the telescope. The number following this message will indicate the address of the component that has lost communication. 16 indicates the azimuth or RA motor board, 17 the altitude (declination) motor board. Unfortunately, this number doesn't tell why the error has occurred.

To clear the no response messages, repeatedly press UNDO. This fix may be only temporary and does not address the potential underlying problem.

You may want to send it in/return it for repairs.

My VMAX100UWH elite screen will not go back up. However I can hear the motor running when I press the up button. Is there a fix for it or does it sound like the motor is blown

I have the same problem. I removed the motor, at the end of the cylander that holds the screen on the motor side, there is a black cap that connects to the motor and makes the cylander turn. Mine was broken, hence the reason for the screen not retracting back up even though the motor still works. I contacted EliteScreens but they said they no longer carry parts for this screen. Now I'm trying to find the part online.

No response from touch screen after reset

Hook the Tomtom using the USB cable to your computer. You should see the Tomtom drive under My Computer as a drive letter.

Backup all data from the Tomtom to a folder on your computer. Now select the Tomtom drive and right click, select properties, select tools, and then Check now. Allow the computer to fix any problems with the Tomtom drive. Once this is completed. Remove the USB cable and do a reset. Now turn on your Tomtom and it should work.
