Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen has cracked

Hi! We've had our laptop for less than a year and I'm not sure if it is defective or not but I came home after work to use it and opened it and the screen had a small crack in the uppper corner. Recently this crack has grown and taken over the whole screen and we can no longer use the laptop. We are not sure if this is covered by warranty or not since we just bought the laptop this year brand new, or what we can do. We've looked around at new screens but cannot find one less than $291.00. We don't really want to have to spend anymore money on this laptop and hope that this would be covered under the warranty. Please let us know! Thank you!

Utilitech In Wall Timer Part # 0192773. I just installed 3 of these on my home and one of which the blue backlighting in the display stays on constatntly. Any idea how to make the one back light time out...

1) I have tested this product:

2) Reset timer, and reprogram.
If functionality is not restored, and backlight does not automatically turn off, then timer is defect.
3%+ all consumer timers arrive defect out of package, or last less than warranty period. Some work for a few years, some last many years.

3) This timer, like most timers, has 1 year limited warranty against workmanship defects.
Buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package.
Contact internet seller for 30-day exchange policy.
Otherwise I do not know who carries the warranty contract ... which means buying timers at local box store is better warranty value.

I open my screen and it use to flicker and then the whole thing would shut down, but now it does nothing when I open the screen. The camera records fine, but I can't get the video's off of it now...

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Will not keep proper time & looses program after one cycle. I came home tonight @ 0030 & even after installing a new battery in & reprogaming it today ,it was showing 0630am when I got home .

You posted under a popular timer sold with GE, Westek, and Utilitec brand names:
Open following link to identify timer for sure.

If you have different timer, hints below might apply.

1) I test timers, and some arrive defective, and some go bad within a year, but most last a few years.
2) To reset timer, unplug for several minutes, plug back in, and then re-program.
3) Move timer to plug on different circuit breaker and see if same problem occurs.
4) If you have another kind of timer in the house, move it to same plug as problem-timer and see if different timer also looses time.
5) Use circuit analyzer to check if circuit has problem. Circuit problems will affect timer electronics.
6) If timer is clean and new-looking: buy another one from Lowes or Home Depot or Target and then return defective one in new package.

Hi, I have a SHARP Microwave Model R398F. Its less than a year old. The display and timer work fine but does not heat up. Can you please let me know what the problem could be. Thanks Js

If the operation is otherwise normal with the exception of heating food, common causes include; (to diagnose requires discharging of the HV capacitor) if you are inexperienced with working with HV I suggest seeking professional help.

Open thermal protectors or thermal fuses.

Open HV Diode.

Open HV capacitor

Open magnetron filament

Open winding in HV transformer

Defective HV relay

Shorted HV diode

Short or other fault in the magnetron

Short in certain portions of the HV wiring

Replacement Magnetrons (the most likely cause if not charring or defective components are found when troublshooting the small parts, can typically be had for around $45.00 just do a web search for your model number.

Good Luck
