My computer chair won't stay up. It goes down with the lever, but not back up when I sit in it. When I turn it on its side and put it up, I sit down and it goes down. Help.

I used an Office Chair Buddy to fix my sinking desk chair. I'm pretty handy, but didn't want to waste time replacing the cylinder. This Office Chair Buddy literally fixed my issue in just a couple of minutes (and that included me opening the package....haha). Got it on Amazon for around $20-$25

The chair raises and lowers by air pressure (I think) or hydraulic (less likely) when a handle is pressed. It fails to remain in the "up" position and sinks to the lowest position when the seat is occupied. Is it repairable ? If so how (manufacturer is unknown)?

You need to replace the cylinder that lets the chair go up and down. Replacement cylinders are available from the manufacturer or eBay. Here is a how-to article.
