Firestore FS-4 I have 2 Firestore FS-4 units. When I power them on, the screen backlight switches on and so does the fan and drive, but the menu etc doesn't appear. Can't switch of either, except plugging out the battery.

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)

Samsung TV (model UN40H6203AF) 40" LED. No picture, have sound. Flashlight test can see faint menu screen. Have replaced power supply & main boards to this point. Ideas as to what to do next?


Hi Terry,

If you can see the faint picture in flash light means the power supply and the main board is working. The real culprit is the backlight. Even one bad LED in the backlight will switch off the whole array. To repair this fault the panel has to be opened and the defective LED or LEDs are to be replaced.

This is a complicated, delicate and risky job and must be attempted by an expert only. You may end up damaging the screen permanently if you have not done it before and try to DIY.

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.

Regards,

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.

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.
