Hi I have a L 1100 that will not bot or make any attempt to. Here is the weird part if I tap around to the right of the start button with my finger an amber light will flicker.If I hit both sides of the palm rest on the bottom 2 green lights flash. In both instances there is no attempt to start.
Any email advice is appreciated and welcome. I alway have problems trying to get back to thewe forums. Thank you

May be more than a loose motherboard dc jack connection, probably a more serious problem with the motherboard itself. Perhaps an issue with memory, try only one memory module at a time, trying one slot at a time.

This sounds as though a connection has come loose on the motherboard. Open the machine and check all connections.

You'll need to reset phone. Turn off your phone. Hold Volume Down + Power + Camera until phone vibrates and NOKIA logo appears, then release Power button but continue to hold Volume Down + Camera until boot completes. Your Lumia 610 has been hard reset. All data will be lost! On the Start screen, tap . Tap Settings > about phone. Tap reset your phone, and then tap yes.

The gas lines popped off on my fj 1100 there is a group of lines (about 4-5) tied together and two other ones just hanging around that just popped right off and leaking gas. where do they belong?


If you mean they are hanging below the carbs, these are carb overflow and breathers.
This would then mean your carbs are flooding and need a clean, and may also mean the fuel tap requires a rebuild, its a vacumn opperated tap, this means the fuel should not flow until the engine is running

Can't boot from usb drive or usb cdrom Tendai


Try to get into the BIOS - when computer first starts a message bottom left will show.... press F1 to enter Set up it migght show esc F1 or F2 or something like that . Whatever it is - Tap that key AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE MESSAGE. - you may have to have one or two attempts you may be lucky and get it first time.
In BIOS go to the BOOT screen - (usually right arrow key to get there) Usually the top item is "Boot order" highlight it and tap the Enter key
Hilight the CDROM line and follow help file on the right ( maybe F5/F6 to move up/down) move cd to top line... this is the 'boot from' line
Note - to boot from USB stick - it MUST be in place BEFORE you go into BIOS - hilight the USB Stick and move that up to the top.
Tap the F10 key then Enter to save and exit BIOS.
Tap the enter key when "hit any key to boot from CD" appears
Done.
Cheers.

No starter engagement 2005 Silverado 1100


I would seriouly look at the starter clutch, the 1100 yamaha cruiser motors are notorious for this problem way back when the same motor was in the viragos and the xvs 1100 vstars, yamaha have tried to fix the prob over the years but stillhavn't got it right. if it just spins and whirs without engaging the engine, but sometime will kick in engagement, it sounds like your starter clutch is on it's way out. they cost from yamaha around $450- 500 ea plus around $350 to fit you have to include a $30 gasket in all that.

Yamaha V-Star 1100 won't fire up


Hi,
Check your battery connections. One or both could be loose or corroded. Most likely loose. You would still have power to your lights but too many amps for the starter to work with loose connection...

Dell Latitiude 1100 Will not boot has poweron issue


I also have a dell inspiron 1100. It seems that it has overheated, and your motherboard or CPU has fried, or died from the heat. What you say sounds like a motherboard failure

There is currently an ongoing lawsuit. Also, take my advice, and instead of trying to fix it, you're better of getting a new computer, as the dell is getting old anways. I spent some extra cash and got myself a vaio.

1100 lcd problem.


most nokia phones have the lcd screwed against the board and they are connected by a little grey sponge thingy that presses against it and is right behind the lcd.

if the lcd is doing weird stuff like dissapearing half or fading out and in this connector is your problem sometimes taking it out cleaning it a bit or turning it around helps.
