Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

Getting a "no Disc" or read errors?

1. Check and see if you using a support media type.

2. Use a cleaning kit as always the best bet.

3. Put you ear in front of the system and see if the disc is spinning.

a. Check that HAT and make sure the disc is not misaligned
b. Check the motor and make sure there was not any slipped bands.
c. Check for any debris in the unit that might be causing the failure.

Sometimes you might have to replace the optical laser or even the motor in these units as they do go bad after a couple years. Please consider the facts here to fix a DVD might cost you more then purchasing a new unit.

Remember if you cannot do the steps above then you should probably have it repaired or replace the unit as a whole.

There is no true inexpensive repair to these units once the reach a certain age.

Please do be considerate when passing threw Fixya when leaving your feedback and or ratings, Thanks

I seldom do morning exercise,but I always lose my earphone when I am running,so what should I do?

I'm no expert, but I have a few ideas:
  • Try wearing one of those stretchy head bands to hold your ear buds in. (if you aren't using ear buds, you might try them out)
  • If it's cold, you could always try using some of those fancy ear warmers.
  • Many retail stores carry relatively inexpensive ear buds that actually wrap around the ear to keep them in. For example, the "Philips SHS3200BK/37 Flexible Earhook Headphones." I have never used them, the model is only intended to describe what I'm talking about.

I don't have the directions how do I work it i have ThermoScan and want to use on 4month old

How to use Braun ThermoScan 1. Always make sure a new, clean lens filter is in place to help ensure an accurate reading. The thermometer will not function without a lens filter attached (see Changing the lens filter). 2. Press the /mem button. The LCD (liquid crystal display) is activated, showing all segments. When the ready symbol is displayed the thermometer is ready for use. 6 To help ensure an accurate temperature reading, use the following technique: If you are right handed, hold the thermometer in the right hand and take the temperature in the right ear. If you are left handed, hold it in the left hand and use the left ear. 3. Perform an ear tug to straighten the ear canal. This gives the thermometer a clear view of the eardrum. Children under 1 year: Pull the ear straight back. Children aged 1 year to adult: Pull the ear up and back. An ear tug is best performed by using your free hand to grasp the outer edge of the top half of the ear. To take your own temperature, wrap your free hand around the back of your head and grab your ear from behind. 4. While tugging the ear, fit the probe snugly into the ear canal as far as possible and press the activation button. Release it when you hear a beep. This is the Temp Beep that confirms the end of measurement. 5. Remove the thermometer from the ear canal. The LCD displays the temperature measured. 6. Replace the lens filter after each measurement: press the ejector button and put on a new, clean lens filter. 7. A new measurement can be taken as long as the ready symbol is shown. If no button is pressed within 2 minutes, the thermometer will turn off automatically. 7 Note: In the following situations, it is recommended that you take three temperatures in the same ear. If they differ, use the highest reading. · Infants in the first 90 days of life. · Children under three years of age who have a condition such as a compromised immune system and for whom the presence or absence of fever is critical. · When you are first learning to use the ear thermometer until you are comfortable with the technique and are obtaining consistent readings. Important: As with any type of thermometer, slight temperature variations ( ± 0.3 - 0.5 °F / ± 0.2 - 0.3 °C) can occur, if consecutive measurements are taken. Temperature taking hints · The right ear reading may differ from the reading taken at the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear. · The ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax buildup to take an accurate reading. · External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an individual has: - been lying on one ear or the other - had their ears covered - been exposed to very hot or very cold temperatures, or - been recently swimming or bathing. In these cases, remove the individual from the situation and wait 20 minutes prior to taking a temperature.

I have lost sound in the left earpiece. Are they history?

i think i might have fixed the same problem i had with mine. I took off the gel cover thing and put a tack or saefty pin in the hole of the gray speaker cover. pull the cover out and clean all the ear wax off the speaker part. it works great now after i cleared the ear wax from the sound hole.

trouble playing games

Some of your games or movies may have problems playing due to 2 issues.

1.> dirty / scratched cd or dvd : Clean each cd with alcohol to clean up any smudges. If the cd / dvd is badly scratched then most electronic & music stores sell a rubbing compound that can be used to buff out mild scratches.

2.> Dirty laser head. : Music & electronic stores sell a special dvd laser cleaning kit, usually around 20$ that should do the trick.

Remember always clean your cd / dvd's before you put them into your machine and always put them back in the case.

As far as hacks go, that will void your warrenty and generally is not a good idea, most hacks are firmware changes that once made can kill the ability to play some games or worse brick your system.

how do you put back in piston, on the brake

Best bet is to get a rebuilt caliper. Unless you bought a reseal kit and hone to bore out, chances are its going to leak. But if you inclined to try to put it back in because you accidently pushed it out all it takes is just pushinh it back in with the bleeder open to let the air out when pusing it in.
