Question about Staples 2x1 USB Peripheral Switch

1 Answer

I can only get the right side of the peripheral switch to work. Only the right side light is on. Whatever I hook to the lit side works, but not the unlit side.

The light will switch from side to side as you switch from one computer to another. Find the yellow icon on the task bar. Right click on it then left click the switch tab this will direct the switch to that computer. Only one side works at a time.

1992 Nissan D21 , left turn signal dose not work , changed bulb and relay , still dose nor work. What next?

Next is probably the turn signal switch. If you have a voltmeter, however, you could be more likely to find the problem, using it to test for voltage at places in the circuit. So I guess you might also need a wiring diagram along with the voltmeter...

If you have neither a voltmeter or a wiring diagram, use logic to think the right turn works so the fuse is good, and if the right turn works, power is going to the switch, and out correctly for the right side, but seems nothing for the left, ( DID YOU CHECK NOT EVEN A BULB DIMLY LIT ON THE LEFT SIDE, FRONT OR BACK? AND ALSO THE LEFT TURN DASH INDICATOR IS NOT LIT?) If nothing lights up for left side, the power is probably lost right in the 25 year old turn switch. That's where you would check for power out (on the proper wires) with a voltmeter- no power means switch is bad. But if the power comes out of the turn switch for left side, then you have to look further along in the wiring , probably not far from the switch connector if the dash indicator bulb is also not lit....It probably is your turn switch.

1991 Fleetwood Prowler travel trailer when I hook up to it the first half of my trailer clearance lights are working the back half nothing's working

The clearance lights are most likely in an series circuit in this case. They will go down the right side as you are looking at it from the front. The last light that is lit is where you will look for connection problems If this is set up as a series parallel then your first light on the left side is the place to start looking for a bad connection.

I hooked up my working car battery to my bike to try and start the bike .. yes the bike battery is dead... ok i hold the clutch in, kick stand is up... my indicator lights are on... my headlights are...

Start by checking the starter button. It is a two function switch. It turns the headlight off and activates the solenoid. Try cleaning it , some disassembly may be required. If it is broken you may have to change the right switch assembly to fix the problem. Your dealing with some type of shorting or grounding in the switch, probably caused by corrosion from sitting in the weather outside.
