My dad had this thing working today, but now I moved it into my bedroom, plugged it in and I can't get it to turn on. There must be a trick. Battery is good, screen working, can't turn on the filter. Please help!

I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.
Check that the purification plate contacts and associated wiring are clean and make good contact with the plates. Also check the plates themselves for dirt build up on the metal grid. If the plates are a few years old, they should be replaced. Your dealer should be able to help you get new plates. Leave a comment if you need additional help.
those things are not worth a bit. you should throw it away you could even possibly be causing yourself more indoor air quality problems by running one with the amount of ozone they produce and put into your home. throw it in the garbage.
Unfortunately this site has cut off your description of what has happened to your leather recliner, but here's my best guess... If the handles of the weight equipment are made of rubber, then almost certainly what you are experiencing is oxidative deterioration caused by the ozone that your "purifier" emits.
It may give a fresh smell to the air, but ozone is an environmental pollutant, causes degradation of organic matter such as leather and rubber (which is how it eliminates nasty smells) and is toxic to animals (including people), often causing respiratory problems.
Writing as a qualified chemist and biologist, I would not want to be in the same room as an ozone generator, and preferably not even in the same house. My advice to you: turn the "purifier" off - permanently! It will be better for both you and your possessions.
Wher can you return it? Does anyone have and address? My Dads unit has a blinking blue light and the folks at sharper image say to bad so sad only after 2 months out of warrenty. Is there any one out there that can help? I am done buying things from Sharper Image with their attitude! [email protected]
I'm not exactly sure what is the problem with your unit since in the title you say it won't start, but in the body you say it won't stop!
If it won't stop just unplug it. I'm assuming that's not your problem though.
If it won't start check the 2 safety interlocks. These automatically stop the unit when you take off either the front cover or the top cover. (This is so you don't stick your fingers in the fan while it is running and sue Hamilton Beach.)
On my unit the top one stopped working because the small plastic tab on the bottom side of the top cover broke off. This tab is designed to press into a switch inside the unit when the cover is properly installed. I over rode the switch by placing a small folded up piece of cardboard into the switch slot and taping it in place. This activates the switch full time. The only drawback is the unit will not shut off automatically when the top cover is removed. This could be a problem if you have an inquisitive toddler or child around the house. I only recommend this modification if you don't have small children around!
The front cover has a similar interlock and can be disabled in much the same way.
i do apologize for the inconvenience that your having with the product. The only other thing that i can suggest cause you already did the majority of the troubleshooting, is that there should be a small pin hole on the top of the unit. that's the reset. stick a small pin in there and hold for about 3 seconds and then the unit should be reset. if that doesn't work there is something internal that is going on. recheck the manual for the trouble shooting options as well.
