Question about E-Machines W2260 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I had the power button replaced and the machine worked fine but somewhere between the repair shop and home we I plugged the machine in it only starts for about 5 seconds and then it shutdown. I removed the cover and notice a black wire and a white wire on a small connector that appears to connect to the motherboard was disconnected. I do not know where to reconnect it, perhaps you could tell me?

Impossible to tell without knowing where the wires come from. I'd take it back to the repair shop and ask them.

SOURCE: eMachines not powering up

You may have updated windows to a point that this old machine cant handle the revamp. Kick back to an older ops system, although that poses security risks. Your motherboard may also have given up. Best advice - upgrade, and retire this machine to the recycle bin.

Why wont my lg 50 plasma tv turn

Perhaps replace your power cord. Borrow power cord from repair shop. If it works it's the cord. Also if the TV is plugged into power bar make sure the power bar hasn't been inadvertently turned off.

When I push the power button the start button flashes on and off and touching start does not start the machine.

Better call a certified Whirlpool appliance service shop and have a tech come look at it and possibly repair it.

Hi when i plug in the power cord and press the power button the power light comes on then goes off and the laptop won't start its and acer aspire 4339-2618 what can be done to fix this i try holding down...

Hi there,

Try removing the power cord and the battery, wait 30 seconds and then plug in the power adapter while the battery is not inserted. Then try to turn the machine on.

If this doesn't work, there is something serious wrong with the machine and it will need to be repaired by your local computer shop.

Interrupted power on my Pfaff sewing machine

Make sure your machine cord secure in the machine. Check your home wall outlet too since you are able to get machine running away from your home. If none of these are the issues, definitely take back for repair. Jimmy

My iphone screen has gone completely white and cant do anything with it

You have one of 3 things going on here.
  1. Software related issue - If this is your case you're lucky! Just perform a hard reset and a restore by following the directions below.
Do a hard reset by holding down home and power buttons together until screen goes black. While holding down home plug the iPhone into your computer. iTunes should now prompt you to perform a restore.

2. Bad LCD - This would require warranty repair/replacement from Apple. If you're not covered you can google iPhone repair for a repair shop. If you want to do it yourself buy your parts on eBay. Not too hard of a repair if you are handy with electronics.
3. Bad Logic Board = Again if this were the issue you would have to use Apple repair under warranty or a 3rd party repair shop. You won't be able to figure out if it's a Bad LCD or Bad Logic board without swapping the LCD for a good one first.
Hope this helps,
Please rate me!

Screen Back light no longer works

Bad wire or a bad solder. you can have this repaired if you have the service manual of the computer as it shows the full anatomy of the machine. Or a local computer shop is always a good option.

Panasonic Flat Screen TV turns off by itself

If your unit was blowing fuses you must have had an overload somewhere. Your post is not clear. Does your unit run ten minutes after unplugging and replugging it? If it does then there is still a partial short in it somewhere which causes it to shut down for protection. It could be anywhere. Some detail on what happened prior to the fuse blowing would be helpful for diagnosis. You do not sound like you would have the expertise to troubleshoot this unit. I doubt there could be much wrong with it and the cost should be minimal. Find a reputable repair shop to handle the repair. Good luck.
