If it does not make any noise, or sound like its getting any power, most likely its the switch.

Sounds like your air conditioner drain is stopped up. Shouldn't this vehicle still be under warranty?

Usually when they get stuck you can`t get them unstuck unless they are just twisted.seat belts are not repairable.Your best bet is to go to the salvage yard and get a used one and replace it.

Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens error, restart camera”. Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. Believe it or not, one BIG contributor to lens errors is using a camera case. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials love to cling to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the case (especially those cases with soft fibrous intreriors). Once these materials work their way into the lens mechanism, that's all she wrote. I have many Canon's, and NEVER use a case for this very reason.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
Fortunately, about half the cameras that suffer this failure can easily be fixed by one of the following methods. None of these methods involve opening the camera, although some have potential to cause other damage to the camera if excessively done. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.
Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

Warrenty on serta mattress


When it comes to the Serta mattress collection, there must surely be one that suits almost all individuals. Of course, we are all very different, and the way we like to sleep runs into literally countless different ways. But a Serta mattress is available in many variations, which means that the choice is there for even the fussiest of sleepers.

Serta Mattress Collection
The Sheraton Pillow Top Serta mattress is one of the favorite models in the Serta range. It offers exceptional support qualities with the head to toe coil system which means that no matter how heavy the other sleeper is, there will be no roll together.

Plus Points
-Coil system supports both people without roll together problem
-Fire blocking quality
-Available from twin to king sizes including California King
-At around $1,000, mid range price
-Ten-year warranty
-Pillow top gives firm support but is soft to the touch
-Can be vacuumed occasionally to keep it clean
-Old mattress was taken away as part of the setup service
-Ranked number one on online review sites

Negative Points
-Heavy to handle for one person
-Price may be a little too much for some budgets
-Pillow tops can sometimes wear out before the bed does
-The Serta Perfect Sleeper Ashwood Plush set is probably one of the better-known models in the Serta range. It comes with all the comfort of any other Serta mattress but has a few other good points too. Since it is a firm model with a plush top, this may be a good compromise for couples who have different needs.

Plus Points
-Has patented 'Comfort Zones' for a better sleep
-Increases the circulation in the body
-Has an advanced comfort quilt for more comfort
-Continuous support system to stop roll together
-No pressure point problems
-Fire blocking qualities
-Price in the $900 range for the set

Negative Points
-No removable cover for cleaning
-Some people may find it too firm
-Heavy to move for one person
-The Euro Top Serta mattress is slightly different from the normal pillow top mattresses.
-A layer of cushioning -covers the whole mattress top from side to side, rather like a box top. One obvious advantage is that the mattress -looks more uniform because the pillow top is right along the mattress so there are no undulations.
-It adds some -height to the finished mattress and looks much neater when the bed is made up.
-One great model in this Serta mattress range is the Perfect Day Consideration Mega Euro Top mattress. It has a 3.5 inch top which adds greatly to the comfort.

Plus Points
-Hypo allergenic materials used
-Thicker comfort layer than pillow top
-Memory foam makes it quite comfortable

Negative Points
-Thick and heavy
-Expensive at between $1,700 - $2,300
It would seem that there are a plethora of different styles and comfort levels in the Serta mattress range. For those who like a solid and firm bed, there are several mattress styles that will suit. For those who like a little comfort, try out the plush topped mattresses which offer a little more comfort.

Possibly the only thing that can be concluded is that a Serta mattress must have something that suits most people. Just take some time to work out exactly what is required for an individual model, settle on a price that is favorable, and enjoy a good night's sleep!

For how long will my adjustable bed last?


Adjustable beds are built to last for many years, and most of the problems can probably be repaired. Most of the adjustable beds have lifetime warranty (depend on the brand).
