No power to dell d620 laptop with or without battery, looking for a possible main fuse problem, where could i find it. thanks


The you most likely have one of two things for fuses places, (1) on the motherboard at the power connectors, or (2) there could be multiple fuses (ie. one in the battery, one in the power adapter, and maybe one on the motherboard.) the latter is rare but I've seen it. It doesn't really matter though because any fuses are most likely soldered in and you'll need special tools to change them without causing more harm then good.

However, if your computer is having a problem where it just plain won't turn on (ie. hit the power button and nothing happens at all), with laptops, you could need a new computer.

Will my ac adapter chardge my camera? I have the Olympus c-50 (zoom)


No. You do have the battery charger, right? If not, get one
FYI
When connecting the AC adapter to the camera’s DC-IN jack, be careful not to
catch the plug on the jack’s cover.
● If the battery power runs out while the camera is connected to a computer,
image data may be corrupted. It is recommended that you use the optional AC
adapter when transferring images to a computer. Do not disconnect or connect
the AC adapter while the camera is communicating with the computer. Or just make sure your battery is fully charged!
● Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below.
This could reduce the number of pictures that can be taken.
•When the monitor is turned on.
•Repeated auto-focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.
•Repeated power zoom adjustments.
•When communicating with a computer.
● Do not remove or load the battery and/or do not disconnect or connect the
AC adapter while the camera is turned on. Doing so could damage the camera’s settings or functions.

Samsung s1030 will not retract lense and bleeps 3 times then no response - batteries are fully charged


Try hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work

Another chance is that lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work.

Try this alternate solution (got information from HP )

  • Turn off the camera, if possible.
  • If an SD memory card is installed, remove the card.
  • Remove power from the camera as described below:
  1. If you are using only batteries for power, open the battery/memory card door and remove both batteries.
  2. If you are using only the AC power adapter, disconnect it from the camera.
  3. If you are using both batteries and the AC power adapter, remove both batteries and the power adapter.
  • Wait for 15 seconds. Then reinsert the batteries and close the battery/memory card door or reconnect the AC power adapter to the camera. If you are using both batteries and AC power, try each method separately.

  • Turn the camera on and off. If the lens does not retract correctly or the camera does not turn on,


You need to take to service center .


Thanks for using FIxya

Canon Powershot G5 won't power on, even with adapter


If you can open it and you have experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try in repair it.

Check the fuses on the printed board circuits.

They are labeled with a P, H or K in the middle of them.

Check them for zero ohms to test them with a meter,.

If you prefer not to do it, then it needs to be professionally serviced, which may be expensive (at least more than buy an used one).

Regards,

Stuck camera lense

Tape door wont close


I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
