My photobank had died due to lack of use and a friend's solution was to just take it apart and unsnap the hard drive from the USELESS mother board and find a hard drive enclosure with USB outs and boot it onto your desktop. My pictures were there and now I have 40 gigs of storage. The company should have gone out of business for all the grief they are still causing the buyers of this inconvience.

My phone wont power on EVEN WHEN PLUGGED IN. please send me a list of nearby service centers so they can see im not crazy and exactly what my phone is not doing since maybe part of the problem is i ca


The most common reason a phone won't power on is when the battery is completely dead and a wall charger, not plugged into a computer, is the only way to get it to charge. If plugging it into a wall get's you nothing, then you can try and remove the battery for 10-20 seconds or hold the power button down for 20 seconds to hard reset the device. I would also try purchasing a new charger or take it to your service providers stores and have them try a different charger. Your local providers stores also have repair services if nothing else works.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!


If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

I've got a Dell Studio 1735 that started to tell me the battery was on the way out after 18 months (maybe a bit more). One day the battery stopped charging and when it ran down completely it...


There is a short circuit on your motherboard. This is why the power adapter switched off (thermal cutout) and resets after you remove the adapter from the wall power outlet.
You need a new motherboard.

There is probably something wrong with the wall socket charger. Try a different charger on your phone and a different phone on your charger and see which ones work.
