Try a factory reset - it will probably fix the problems you're seeing. These are the instructions I got from Focus Enhancements: FACTORY RESET
a. With the Firestore powered OFF.
b. REMOVE the “battery” and connect the “AC Adaptor”.
c. Press and HOLD down the "ON” and “OFF” buttons for 15' seconds, then release just the “ON” Button.
d. Count to five (5) then release the “OFF” button.
e. The Firestore should be powering back up to the home screen.
(It takes the firestores settings back to the normal setup. This "will not" erase any current footage on the drive) (You may have to re-do current update/upgrade version)

The display of my laptop is not working when i switch it on the backlight glows but nothing appears on the screen it doesn't even boot.


It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS you are using? Try a hard restart , remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, etc., unplug , remove battery, leave battery out, plug in , reboot. Describe what happens, Fan spins? LED's blink? HDD spins up? Sound? Anything on screen? Have you tried a System Restore/Recovery? You can start by removing the HDD and testing it, if you done have a USB to sata/ide adapter take it to a Qualified Computer Tech.

Black screen on start up


Hello,

When you turn on the laptop and get a black screen, does it sound like the computer is still running(are any lights lit up etc) ? If so, then you possibly have a bad video display. I would highly recommend visiting a repair shop or contacting the manufacturer of our laptop for service repairs.

If the laptop is plugged up to any other display, or TV , unplug it and reboot.

If it does not sound/look like your laptop is actually turning on then you may have a power issue. You can try some of the following tips to see if it resolves your issue.
-Leave the laptop charging for 10 minutes then try and turn it on. It may not be charged up enough.
-Try a new power cable
-Try a new battery
-Try a different wall to charge the laptop.

Leapster2 is 2 1/2 years old. Placed brand new batteries in Leapster2. Try to power it on, screen comes up like it is going to turn on, and it turns off.


Welcome to FixYa!



Ensure NO GAME is in unit
Power Unit off
While turning Leapster 2 on, hold down HINT KEY. (Key in middle with question mark on left hand side)

Once unit switches to other menu, Hit A to begin calibrating.
Follow prompts with Sylas pen to reprogram Stylus pen.
Once you are done it will return to original Calibrating Menu.
Power Unit off Turn unit on with game inserted. Stylus pen should respond.



1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted

2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears. 3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button 4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus 5) Restart unit

Nothing appear on screen. But the power button is lighting on and i can hear the fan at the back of the laptop. i tried removing the battery and tried again but still nothing appear on screen.


If the Hard drive LED is active and it appears that the computer is going through the boot up process then your screen if faulty, probably due to a faulty backlight controller. Try shining a small torch near the screen and see if you can make out any details on the screen. If so then the backlight needs to be repaired.

Unit re-powers after being turned off. Only removing the battery gets it to shut down without re-powering.


When it repowers,is it because when you hold the unit,it repowers? Then once it shuts down put the unit down.

My mac does not recognise firestore fs-4. the Batt was dead but it turns on and stays lit while I have it plugged in to the computer.(ibook G4)


Hi,

if you mean the battery on the mac went dead and now the external drive won't recognize but otherwise acts normally then the formatting on the drive is likely damaged from shutting down in the middle of sommething it was doing.

You two main options you can try. DiskWarrior can be purchased through any Mac store, if it is a simple fault it will be able to repair the logical problems on the drive. If this doesn't work or you'd prefer to have a pro do the work on the drive for you reply back with your location(Country, State, City) and I will point you in the direction of a nearby pro.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Firestore FS-4 does not show up when connected


I own three FS-4 and one of them has the same problem. Two of them connect no problem. The third one says the connection is successful but windows doesn't recognize it. After playing around a bit it appears that I am not getting a good connection with the 6 pin firewire output on the Firestore. I find that with repeated attempts and carefully holding the cable in various positions, I eventually get it (reminds me of analog TV antennas when you have to be in just the right position to get a channel in clearly). The good news is, once it is recognized, it stays recognized until the need for the next download.

So for my unit, I think I simply have a bad jack. Hope this helps.
