SOURCE: 1971 yamaha 175 motorcycle electrical problem

ill do a list of things that can help or be the problem.

1) Pull the coil off and wire brush down all the bare metal. then do the same to the frame where it bolted on. Make sure there is a grounded wire that bolts back onto the coil if there was one, Replace the wire end for the ground peice.

2) Pull off the spark end cap and cut the wire down a few mm until you see new wire then screw it back on. (if its NGK)

3) follow the wire from the kill switch and make sure it isnt grounding out.

4) Hotwire - find the kill switch and unplug it. if this doesnt help unplug the ignition key wiring. on older bikes it will work for ignition but not lights for the key part. if this helps you need a new Ignition barrel / Kill switch.

5) check your wiring harness make sure it isnt grounding anywhere exept where its ment to.

6) make your your engine to CDI is plugged in and has no oxide in it

7) try and find somone with a running bike the same as yours and borrow there CDI, if this helps you need to buy a new CDI or check yours for wiring shorts.

hope this helps if not buzz me (

Hi. I'm having Nokia C7 mobile.When i request for GPRS(BSNL Postpaid) setting, the settings sms comes to my inbox as "Trusted server settigns received but not saved. Message could not be authenticated...

Go to Access Points under Settings and manually add a new access point. The settings for your service provider are given below: Connection Name: BSNL Internet Data Bearer: Packet Data Access point name: bsnlnet User name: Leave blank.
Thats all. Save the access point and use it with your applications.

Connection lost, try again for my Nokia 6610i

make sure that you have the right access point.
depending on your network, your phone may use different access points for multi-media messaging, streaming, and web browsing.

you can manually input these access points in
Settings>>Connection Settings
Settings>>Phone Settings >>Connection Settings

and look for Data Packets, or Access points.

or you can have your network provider send you the configurations by providing them your unit model by calling their hotline. Most network providers should have this service for free.

Can' t open WEB

>> check if the "access point you are using is configured correctly.

to do so m go to settings, connections, access points , there you ll find the access points... modify settings of the one which is related to internet and have a blast..

If there's no access point, then either, request you service provider to send u the settings, or you may manually enter settings there, by CREATING NEW ACCESS POINT there , and copying the settings from your friend's fone, who uses SAME NETWORK as yours.. it will work in 99 percent cases....

Too much yellow does not adjust with normal drop screen adjustments. can i adjust the light beams.on my philips 50"

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} 1. Turn the green screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
2. Turn the red screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
3. Turn the blue screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
4. If the screen still appears too bright after proper G-2 adjustment, you need to adjust the sub-bright adjustment in the service menu
control down until screen cut-off. (Service data Range is usually 21 to 25 in the Service menu, for Sony sets you first go to category "MCP2", & then adjustment item 01( "SBRT")= subright.
For electrical the focus, put on the screen a clear picture of your choice thru an input of the TV set from a DVD, then pause the playback of the DVD Look into each color and rock that color focus control back and forth (turn the control one way then the other way slowing down as the picture goes into the best focus. till the picture looks sharp do each color till they all look in focus. NOTE: it is best to look into each color tube to achieve the best electrical focus. For optical focus please follow the manual lens adjustment in the sets service manual

Gprs settings on bsnl postpaid 199 rental on nokia 3110c

well.. u need to contact BSNL customer service people, and they should send u the GPRS settings by sms, just save the settings and use them as your default config settings.
the other way would be to manually configure GPRS by manuallyin addint an access point and other settings, which will get complicated as you will have to manually copy them from other BSNL GPRS enabled phone..

best way is to contact customer service, and they will sms the settings to u..
