Wireless LAN switch not working - can it be set any other way

The wireless on/off switch does not result in the wireless light coming on. Is it possible to turn on the wireless through control panel or similar?

    My problem is similar, I have an acer aspire and it's switch does make the light come on, and a thing on the screen say 'Wireless LAN enabled' but then nothing happens. I've reinstalled drivers and been everywhere tring to find a solution.... Help!

    PS: If you have that 'Acer empowering technology' green button on your screen, the power settings in there will turn my WiFi light on.

Hi, Unfortunately no, most laptops uses a miniPCI WiFi Card with a switch that is hardwired to one of its pins. That pin must receive a signal (or absence thereof) to activate. Control Panel activation is actually the enable/disable feature, but it's still got to be mechanically switch on, otherwise it will still not function even if enabled (which I suspect you already have tried). Although there might be a way to trick the wifi into thinking it was mechanically switch on, however it is no longer swtichable to off (meaning always on). First, you must determine if your laptop uses a miniPCI WiFi Card similar to the image shown below left. If yes, you have to cover pin # 7 as illustrated below mid image. You would need Scotch tape about 1.0mm wide and 4.0mm long to cover the pin. Of course the usual precaution applies, AC power off, battery removed, possible void of warranty, can possibly make your unit inoperable (unlikely though still possible) and others as may be applicable. Good luck and hope this works for you. Post again how things turn up or should you need further information. Kind regards.

    Hi again,
    some would venture that it is actually pin # 13 (i.e. count include the other side). Cheers.

The same thing actually happened to me when i accidentally hit the switch and couldn't turn it back on. as a desperate attempt at anything except taking the laptop apart, i took out the battery after i shut down the laptop and put it back in. the wireless was back on after i turned on the laptop.

Bobcat 896.. I don't have any control lights come. On when I turn the key switch on. Checked all relays and fuses, getting power to them but no panel lights to even try to start


Check your ignition switch. There is an electrical component that turns on some electrical stuff when you turn the key to accessory. I had a similar problem once. Do not confuse the key locking mechanism with the switch.

In order to connect to a wireless network and the Internet on an IBM Lenovo machine, you must first enable wireless networking via your computer's operating system. Allow about five minutes to enable your IBM Lenovo computer's wireless capabilities.

Right click "Wireless Network Connection" icon. Select "Enable." Enable Wireless via Switch Check your IBM Lenovo laptop for a wireless networking switch. It is usually on the front of the computer above the keyboard. Slide the wireless switch to the "On" position. Look for a wireless light on the front of the laptop. In some cases a light will come on to indicate that wireless networking is active. Other switches, when active, reveal a green strip of plastic.

Lock light turns on then blinks and wont start


Possible that the lock switch contact has some issues, try a cleaning spray on the switch and open and close the door several times with the spray. This might clear the switch contacts.
Also make sure that the contacts to the connectors from the control panel are in order, remove and tighten or repeat few times.
Otherwise the control panel can be a suspect.

I turn on my washing machine all the lights go on when i go start it dose't go on also it will not change the program


Possible suspected part is the main program controller unit and you need to remove the plug for few hours to allow the machine to shut down fully. If there is no result then check the panel clean and reset connectors, if not try and swap a similar control board to confirm.

Scanner will not power up.


do any of the panel lights come on at all? If they do then there are a couple of possibilities. If nothing comes on then it is likely the main power board.

If any of the lights on the control panel do come on the it is possible that the driver board for the scanner is bad. The front panel of the scanner that is part of the paper rest is a cover for all the electronics. There are two phillips screws on the front that hold it on. Remove these and then slide this cover off. Power on the scanner and see if lights come on on any of the boards. Post back the results and I can provide further guidance.

I am having trouble connecting to the internet because my WLAN has been turned off, how do I turn my wireless back on?


From the HP website:

The power to the wireless network and bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is possible to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. c02230159.jpg On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use different a different color scheme. To turn on and enable the wireless device, do the following:
  1. To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the on position. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard.
  2. To enable the wireless device, right-click the HP Wireless Assistant (disabled) icon c02228164.gif and select Open Wireless Assistant . Click Turn On . The HP Wireless Assistant (enabled) icon c02228163.gif will display.

Turn signals work fine one minute and then they stop. I can pull over to the side and turn car off and then on and it works fine or if I tap the hazard light switch they start to work. What is the problem.


The turn signals and hazard lights are controlled by the hazard switch, which is the button you push to engage your 4 way flashers. The electronics in the switch corrode over time and the result is an intermittant, no turn signal/no hazard light problem. Under most circumstances, replacing that switch eliminates the problem. There is another possbility, rare, but possible. That is, there is a problem with the BCM and/ or the ignition switch as some of the electronics run through the ignition switch. Usually if the switch is at fault, you will get a no-start condition WITHOUT the passlock security light, and possibly a random re-set of the cluster gages similar to what you see when first starting your vehicle. Have this checked by a qualified mechanic before spending money on a new ignition switch!

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
