Get Your Ride On!
Power Cycling Electronics? I know it fixes most problem I have with electronics but why does it work?
Thanks for your help
The electronic components have many circuits inside, and when one or more change voltage levels when they aren’t supposed to, then it doesn’t work properly and you get “hung up”.
When you turn off the power, all of the electricity in the circuits bleeds away to zero, so that when you turn it on again, all the circuits are starting off fresh.
You should wait a few seconds between turning your electronics off and turning them back on to allow the voltages to bleed off completely.
The main reasons why power cycling is done is to have an electronic device reinitialize its configuration or recover from an unresponsive state, such as “Crash” or “Hanging”.
Most modern electronic devices have a program ROM chip or BIOS, with their proprietary programming. Over the course of normal operation, certain unforeseen events such as power surge and electrical noise can cause electronic devices to malfunction, and the simplest way to reinitialize the program is to cycle the device’s power.
I hope my answer explains your question.
This forum is about bicycles and riding them: cycling get it?
Electronics – Computers? A memory chip is labeled as 2114-20. What does the 20 indicate?
TRC read cycle time is 200 clock cycles minimum
max access time = 200 nSec
if you notice the other chips 2114-3 are tRC 300 and max access time of 300=nSec
So I am going to say that the 20 designates the access time of the memory chip.
Cycling A 76L Tank? According to some conversion website, 76.2 Litres is 20.13 US Gallons or 16.76 UK Gallons. (Why do you have different Gallons, omg you imperial measurement system people are crazy :P).
Anyway, I’m planning to cycle the tank for about 4 weeks then add fish slowly at about 2 fish/week until it’s stocked. I’ve currently got the cover open – is this necessary? I heard it helps in the evaporation of chlorine from the water, although I have already treated the water with a de chlorinating chemical. Also, do you need a surge protector for aquarium electronics, or will a normal power board suffice?
Yeah your cycling procedure sounds perfect ?
If you’ve already added dechlorinator to the water, leaving the cover off isn’t necessary, but if it’s more convienient for you for some reason it won’t hurt.
And with the surge protector – if have one lying around or want to invest in one it certainly won’t hurt – it’ll prevent any damage. Saying that, where I live I have surge protected all my electronics and in 18 years nothing has happened. It can’t hurt, so I’d go for it ?
