Hi Corbin, Try to press and hold the on/off button for at least 30 seconds, this resets the Surface. These tablets respond a bit different to the power button than a normal PC. We have several Pro 4 tablets here, all with these symptoms every now and then. Surface tablets seem to have major issues with switching between power states, especially in combination with a Surface Dock. It’s more stable with the latest firmware of the Pro 4 and the dock, but still not responsive every now and then. The official Microsoft instructions give you 2 options: (1) Press and hold the power button until the screen turns off (about 10 seconds), then release the power button.Note (2) On some Surface models, the screen may immediately turn off when you press the power button. If this happens, continue to hold for the full 10 seconds and then release. (3) Press and release the power button to turn your Surface back on. You should see the Surface logo. If that doesn't work, use this two-button shutdown process to make sure...
Hi Dennis, Did you consult Asus support on this matter? I also work at a school, in the past we used a lot of Asus computers, both laptops and desktops. In my experience their support department is very helpful, but of course this could depend on the country you’re in. Asus support is your best chance though, they’re the experts on their gear! Greetings, Eelco (from the Netherlands)
Gently tap the battery door with the back of a screwdriver. The stuff running out of leaky batteries is very briddle, it wil probably crumble when you tap it. The batteries might be a bit swollen due to the corrosion, so the battery springs don’t push the bateries out. Could be a bit of hassle, but I think you’l manage. Cleaning the corrosive fluid inside the camera is the bigger challenge, it might have done some damage. If not, stop it from doing so by cleaning the contacts with alcohol.
Hi Jessica, Today I took 3 of these apart because it had been a while. As you can see I removed my previous advice because it applies to a different (older) calculator. I'm very sorry for that. The three Ti-83's I took apart were all different, so I assume there are quite a few different types of the same calculator. The bad news is: the display connectors on these calculators are difficult to repair. Ti used adhesive to glue the connector to display and print, and it decays after time. This may be repairable with a bit of heat and lots of patience, but I wouldn't expect a long life of the repair.
Hi Liviu. Nevermind the hardware, this is probably a software problem. Might be malware related, check for adware and such. Also check for plugins in your browser that you did not install yourself and things like non-standard toolbars. In task management you can look for the processes that consume disk access time and processor capacity, it might give you a clue on what's wrong.
Must be a regional setting. Check if the wrong keyboard layout is selected. Most common is US international, check the keyboard layout of your laptop if That's your layout. Some countries use a different layout, but it requires a corresponding keyboard.
Since you probably have two of those speakers, you can compare values. My guess is that one of your power lines is missing (positive or negative), so measuring the powersupply voltage would be my first try.
Check Louis Rossmann's YouTube channel or the EEVblog channel, they made a few videos on lab equipment. Louis is a microsoldering specialist on Macbook logic boards, he has some good tips on good quality for small budgets.
Get a soldering station with active tips, meaning the heating element is in the tip. Even the top brands such as Hakko and Weller use passive tips on their low-end models. The tips are cheaper, but the soldering temperature is just not as consistent as the ones with active tips. Better to choose new technology on Chinese stations than old technology on a top brand. Top brands will probably last you longer, but your soldering jobs will be better with an active tip. I own a pretty expensive JBC station, but Hakko offers more affordable stations with the same technology (The FX-951 for example). The FX-888D is an example of old technology from a top brand. Not the best choice in my opinion. Note that Hakko stations are copied a lot, the internet is full of fake Hakko FX-951 stations. You can tell by the incredibly low prices. Check some YouTube review video's on those, the quality is not necessarily too bad. A good choice for a small budget until you can afford the real thing. You should also check if you can...
