How to Rejuvinate Your Motorbike Leathers

So here's how to. Its actually real simple but can be time consuming if doing a colour change.

Can be used for your old faded set, ones you've had a slide in or even if your looking for a colour change.

[B]1.[/B] Go to any shoe repair shop that sells Leather spray dye's in lots of colors.

[B]2.[/B] Also you need the leather deglazer.

[B]3.[/B] Prep leathers, clean, dry and deglaze the area you want to color.

[B]4.[/B] Mask the area you want to color , this is what is time consuming. it gets real messy.

[B]5.[/B] Apply dye roughly 4 or 5 coats (if changing colours, less if just touching up). This takes awhile cuz it take long to dry inbetween coats and work on one area at a time.

How can I fix my this ? Pixel colour fades on screan , though battery is fully charge , how can I fix this please?


some computers will fade the screen automatically when on battery power. on windows systems, you can change those settings (normally) by going to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings (beside the option in use) -> change advanced power settings -> Display (see screen shot)

Hi
Plz check your avi video cable socket (YELLOW IN COLOUR) - change the avi cables
If HDMI - unplug & Re-plug your HDMI Socket.
If using a HDMI Converter box - check whether the converter box is getting overheated - if so, buy a branded one (BELKIN is Preferable) & use the cables given in the pack. DONT USE THE OLD ONE

Seeing a blue "haze" on presentations, and when on blank screen


On the "Option" menu, try selecting "Service" and the "Factory Reset". This may help. If not, you will have to use the menus to manually adjust the level of blue in the projectin. Go here for the manual for your Hitachi and you will find instructions:
