Question about Invacare Supply Group Invacare Lynx L3 3Wheel Travel Scooter Blue
It does not drive
SOURCE: My wife has a Lynx
The complete service manual is available from this link:
In my experience the best way to adjust the throttle pot is to clean it. I usually replace both the throttle potentiometer and speed potentiometer when they fail or they have dead spots. You can carefully remove these components by removing the covers and following the service procedures in the manual. Very carefully take them apart to clean the wiper on the potentiometer with electronic spray contact cleaner (this is not in the service manual; use extreme care and do it delicately). You can adjust the spring tension on the throttle potentiometer with careful bending.
You can try first to zero out the throttle pot by hand and start the scooter to clear the error code. With your left hand adjust the lever left or right and with your right hand turn the scooter on. By trial and error you may be able to get this to work.
In both circumstances you will wind up replacing both components anyway and the fixes I have described are only temporary. Hope this helps.

Disk management utility will help you see all the drives that are connected to your computer, including internal hard drives, CD or DVD Drives, and removable storage like USB sticks and external hard drives. Using this utility, you can check for attached drives that are not visible in windows when attached to your computer. You can also format drives, change drive letters, mark a partition as active and delete partitions. A word on caution about using the Disk Management Utility: This utility can cause destruction of data. If you are not sure of what you are looking at and uncomfortable with using this utility you should consult with an advanced user before making any changes to drives using this utility. Also, drive '0' is usually your main hard drive.
Right click on you "My Computer" Icon
A menu will open
The Computer Management window will open
The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.
The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.
The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.
The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.
Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")
This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.
A drive this is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.
