Tip & How-To about Apple Cell Phones

Use Quality Tools

When you get your firs digitizer/LCD to fix, it will most likely come with a free set of tools. These tools get the job done, but are very tedious and difficult to work with. My advice is, if you are fixing electronics often, spare no expense in the tools department.

Instructions for call forwarding on a KXTGE234B

Hello Eve Lansing,

Call forwarding is CUSTOM CALLING feature...

(TYPICALLY not free).

Which has nothing to do with your telephone set
(cordless or wired). Since FIXYA is actually a GLOBAL site...
PONTIFICATING about telecom feature invocations would be foolish for me to try...

(But you could look at the nifty wiki page I attached at the bottom to see how WIKI thinks CALL-FORWARD is done GLOBALLY).

Typically local network instructions (were... in my day (long past))
found in the front of your phone book...
The paper-type (in my case formerly Pacific Telephone & Telegraph... (see below for me being foolish)).

Lets say you were in a USA serving area...

To cancel call forwarding... listen for dial-tone... then dial: *,7,3

To invoke, dial: *72.. listen for second DIAL-TONE (INPUT THE 1+ (FULL TEN DIGIT) destination code (eg: 1+ 415-555-1212)...

If it rings... and is answered... Job done!

Else: (no answer repeat the sequence: *72....
1+ 415-555-1212... (rings again... job done).

To test... simply dial your own number...
(you should hear a "ring splash" (one short ring) on the forwarding line (but will not be able to answer calls there again until you cancel with the *73.

(If you get fast busy... trying to dial *73... the FEATURE NEEDS TO BE ACTIVATED by your local provider.

Hope this was more informing than tedious!!

Nota bene:
If indeed you use the 555-1212 (as seen on TV)... all your calls will now be forwarded to the San Francisco AREA information operator
(bad idea).

how to fix cracked plazma screen t.v.

The expense will be more than a new TV. There are places online that sell replacement screens. To do the job it is necessary to remove all the parts inside the TV to get to the screen. It's a tedious job and a time consuming job. A lot of different length screws need to be kept track of so they all go back into their original places to avert damage.. You must be especially concerned with static charge damage when handling the boards once removed from the TV.

How to fix a i phone 4

Hello Anonymous
This would probably be a good opportunity to take the iPhone4 into an Apple Centre and pick up a cheap upgrade to an iPhone4S at least. (faster processor & better camera). Your phone is getting outdated and Apple offers a relatively cheap way to get to a better model. But.... if you thing your savvy enough to attempt replacing the LCD unit, here are the instructions. Just remember... you can't take it in to Apple if your attempt fails.
Replacing the display assembly will give you a new front glass panel, digitizer, and LCD. The LCD is adhered to the glass at the factory and the two parts are not separable without damage.

Can valve seals be replaced without removing engine on a g9 Yamaha golf cart

If you can get access to the spark plugs easily and the rocker gear easily then you can do the job in car. You will need a tool to go in the plug holes and push up un the valve heads to hold then up while you replace the spring retaining collets. A tedious job but can be done.
