most likely there will be nothing you can do. just plan on getting your nephew to replace it.

one thing though, you need to be specific as to the problem instead of saying it is not working. that covers from not being able to turn it on to broken on/off switch.

1. Get the service manual.
2. Find out what part is broken and needs to be replaced.
3. Buy the replacement part.
4. Install it.
5. Test. If still no luck go back to #2.
6. It's fixed.

May I ask why you post in an Auto repair forum? I don't think a metal detector has much in common with a car.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
