Answer to: Why won't lever workI notice we have different models of toaster but both toasters have the bread being inserted from the top of the toaster. Mine had a similar problem a few weeks ago. The problem with my toaster was that it was not getting power from the electrical socket in the wall. The reason the electrical socket was not giving power, was because the GFCI had tripped. The GFCI on the electrical socket had a reset button, so I tried that, but it didn't work at that time. I found out later that the reason was that I had too many things running at the same time off of that one electrical socket (microwave, George Foreman electric grill, and my toaster). My toaster would not stay down unless it had electrical power coming in from the plug. My solution for you is this. Check to see if the electrical socket that your toaster is plugged into has a GFCI on it or if the circuit breaker for that socket is tripped. (A GFCI electrical socket looks like a regular electrical socket that has 2 buttons on it. The 2 buttons will be labeled...
Answer to: Why doesn’t the touch screen on my camera receive the correct input?This can be due to one of 3 possibilities. The first possibility is that there is a physical defect like a dimple, divot, or crease in the LCD touch screen that is causing the touch screen to register that defect as a button press instead of your actual button presses. The second possibility is that the glass inside the touch screen is cracked or broken. This can cause many errors in the touch screen and your problem is one of those possible errors. The final possibility is that the motherboard deep inside the camera is damaged in some way. the good news here is that to have your exact problem the motherboard would have to be damaged in certain ways. To damage the motherboard in those ways only and not show other problems in your camera is unlikely, so the cause of your problem is likely one of the other 2 problems. The first 2 problems would require replacing the LCD touch screen itself. If the motherboard is the problem, then replacing the motherboard is your best bet. Given that motherboards are a kind of ...
Answer to: Why won’t my camera turn on?This points to a problem with either the battery, the connection the battery has with the camera, and/or the battery charger itself. Safety first, unplug the camera. Second just remove the battery (there is a slider that needs to be moved to remove the battery), and remove any lint or other material that may have been between the battery and the camera. If something had gotten between any metal connection points between the battery and the camera, then that could prevent the battery from charging while actually lighting up the LED indicator. Next reattach the battery. then plug the camera back in to try to charge the battery again for another 15 minutes. 15 minutes won't charge the battery to full, but it will give a good battery enough of a charge to turn on the camera. If after a 15 minute charging cycle the camera won't turn on, then the battery needs to be replaced. This camera uses an InfoLithium (R) battery, so use an appropriate replacement.
