Tip & How-To about Televison & Video

Testing your remote controller.

It's something that i have repeated and that is pretty usefull because everybody can do this at home.

Sometimes it's only a matter of pressing on a button and everything is back to normal but it's not always that easy for everybody to get there...

To make sure your remote is fonctional do this test:

Open your radio and put it on a AM frequency, ideally just noise and not on a used frequency.
Approach your remote emitter to make a direct contact to the antenna.
Press on every button of your remote to test them all.
You will ear a buzz sound each time you press on a button.That means that it is fonctionnal. If one button do not make the buzz there is a problem with that button.
That's it!
If it pass the test then the problem might be a matter of programming the remote. Sometimes you just have to press the component you want to use on the remote.

The remote utilise the am frequecy to transmit that's why it does make interference sound. (buzz)
It won't work on FM frequency.

good luck!

iphone Freeze

My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work.  I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse.  I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone.  Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason.  All is good, my phone is back!
