Orientation sensor got stuck

A95 has orientation sensor. In my camera it got stuck. If I slap it several times it detects correct orientation and got stuck again.

  • marcogilbert Feb 10, 2008

    Hi,

    My A95 was exposed to a humidity for a while then when I tried to used it after that the orientation sensor was stuck for vertical picture. After a couple of days it started to work again but then after about one month is got stuck again and now I cannot get anything else than vertical picture orientation.

    Any idea how to fix this ?

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Repaired latch inside door, but when I close the door the light stays on and reads close door

Repaired latch inside door, but when I close the door the light stays on and reads close door
How To Fix A Stuck Latch If your door can open correctly but can't close without getting stuck, it's likely an issue with the latch. Multiple issues can compromise door latches, such as a mechanical error, worn down latch components, broken door handle cables, and more. If the latch is simply stuck, you should be able to fix this yourself without taking your car to a mechanic. Just take some oil lubricant, like WD-40, and spread/spray it into the latch mechanism of your open door. Let the oil soak in for a little bit, then use a microfiber cloth to rub the oil into any visible parts of the latch. While performing this task, check to see if you can find any rust on latch components. If you do, use a piece of steel wool to scrape the rust away. Once removed, try opening the latch with your door handle to confirm that it is once again functioning correctly. In some situations, your latch may accidentally be closed when it should be open. This can happen for multiple reasons - sometimes due to an electrical glitch or a mistake made while repairing the door. Either way, if you have a car door with a closed latch, try opening your door and looking at the latch to determine its orientation. Then, open a functional door and look at the latch to see how it's supposed to be. A working door will have a latch with "open" jaws. These jaws can catch the door jamb anchor and rotate into a closed orientation to secure the door. If the latch's jaws are already closed, it can't engage with the anchor or close properly. To fix this issue, take a screwdriver and hold the door handle in the open position (pulling if necessary). As you pull the handle, rotate the latch with your screwdriver into the correct orientation. If needed, ask a friend or family member to help you hold the door or hold the handle open for you while you perform this action. Once you have moved the latch into the correct orientation, test the door handle a few times. The latch should open when you pull the door handle, and the door should again be functioning correctly.

My lenovo think pad x60's screen has turned sideways. I think I pushed several buttons at the same time by accident. Help!

Typically the hotkeys to rotate the screen are Ctrl+Alt+Direction Key. Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow should restore your screen to the correct orientation.

Runs at full speed

Jdphilpo, I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor which determines the mixer’s speed.  I had this exact problem with my 575 watt 600 series. I went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13.  I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight.  Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work!  There was nothing wrong with the original Hall Effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection before I decided to buy another sensor. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations.  1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312 for my model.
2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer gear case cover.
3.  Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug.
4.  Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is correct.  It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again.  I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.  But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.  
5.  This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.
6.  Use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.
