Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3815 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The on switch isn't working.

I click the 'on' switch but it doesn't feel like it is doing anything or hitting anything else to actually turn it on. It won't turn my camera on and i think that is the problem. I tryed opening up the camera to see if i could tell what was wrong... but it looks a lot more complicated than i had thought. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Car wont start, NOT battery

sometimes a rubber mallet doesn't work on the stater, you actually have to hit it with something stronger, like a hammer while turning it over. If not check to see if you have a pro lock on your vehicle because if that becomes just a little loose it won't start.

My figidaire pauses after two or three minuets


what you need to do to solve the problem of the washer is to troubleshoot below are step by step solution on how to solve the problem.

If your washing machine is out of whack, check for these easy fixes
before you spend money and time on a repairman.

1 Make sure the cord is plugged in and that the breaker hasn't tripped.

2 Reset the overload switch - according to the manufacturer's directions - if the machine won't turn on but the breaker hasn't tripped. (Make sure you take some of the clothes out before you run it again or you'll have the same problem.)

3 Check the hot water faucet if the water isn't warm. Also clean the filter screens and make sure that your hot-water heater isn't out of hot water.

4 Make sure the faucets are on, the filters are clean and that the hoses aren't kinked if the washer is filling too slowly.

5 Clear any obstructions in the hose if the clothes are too wet at the end of a cycle. Also, be sure the washer is spinning; if it isn't, remove some of the clothes and redistribute the load. Reset the overload switch. Tighten the drive belt if this doesn't fix the problem.

6 Check the hoses for damage if you are seeing water leaks on the floor.

7 Put a nylon stocking on your hand and feel around the inside of the washer if you are finding snagged or torn clothing. Sand rough spots with fine sandpaper.

Epson PowerLite 410W projector (used for a smart board in a classroom) won't project anything or even turn on. Power button (maybe lamp indicator light? I don't really know anything about this...)...

It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.

Constant clicking sound when turned picture....looks like TV isn't on. You only hear the constant clicking. You have to cut power to stop it.....hitting the power button on the TV doesn't...

Sounds like bulb is burnt out. Have replaced its the cheapest way to go. It may be a power board but if its out of its warrenty, then you may just want to buy a new set.

Presario C714NR gr983UA#ABA ALPS touchpad does not work I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers but it still does not work

I had a similar issue with my ASUS. Try finding a program on your computer other than the Control Panel that controls the trackpad. For instance mine is Elan Smart-Pad. Usually working with some of the configurations in the program reinitialize the trackpad. If that doesn't work make sure that it isn't turned of due to keyboard interference (hitting a button that turns the trackpad off). Hopefully that isn't the case though.

When i switch the phone on it goes to the homescreen and before i can press anything it reboots straightaway, i have tried taking out the sd card and sim card and still doesnt do anythin, it will...

Sounds like a software problem to me. take out your battery, and wait like a minute. Put the battery back in. Plug the phone into the charger. While it's charging, turn it on. Hopefully, you have enough time to do the next step: Dial *288 and press the number 1 when you hear the voice prompt you to. By doing this, you are resetting your phone. If this doesn't help, then I'm afraid there probably isn't anything you can do without bringing the phone to your provider's nearest store location. If it isn't due to water damage, they'll probably replace the phone for free. Hope this helps!
