How do I program a RCA remote to be use with a Roshan tv

This brand is not listed with RCA remote codes. Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Search the site by type in the brand name of your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the Home page display" to see the set-up codes to your device, with different brand remote controls.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line advertisements too, which deals with electronic spare parts. There are many firms deals with remote controls.

wrong power adapter plugged in

Hi Cliff,

This can be the cause of a catastrophic failure for the camera (or any other electronic device that has been mismatched to a higher voltage or different current type power supply). The chances of recovering from this are dependent upon the difference between the devices power requirements and the that supplied by the wrong power supply. The greater the difference and the longer the length of time it was connect before realizing it was the wrong supply; the less likely that the device will be able to withstand the stress of overpowering or wrong current type (AC or DC).

Usually, there's little the user can do to "help" the device recover. it will either resume working again; or not. The device will not "heal" over time either.

If the device will no longer work, accept a charge from the correct power supply, it's probably "done". Because electronic devices are updated so often, unless it is fairly new - it may not even be worth the cost of repair. You should have it looked at and get an estimate for repair just to be sure. Tell the repair shop exactly what happened as this can significantly reduce troubleshooting time - and ultimately the cost of the repair. Do not overlook the possibility of returning it to Canon for factory service, either.

Good luck!

how do i transfer music from my pc to my android

Install the software that came with your Android or if Windows XP and above can see your Android use Windows Media Player (see notes below for Windows 7)
Sync music, pictures, contacts, and calendars with a mobile device
There are two ways to sync a mobile phone, portable music player, or other mobile device with your computer. You can install the sync software that many manufacturers include with their devices, or you can use the new Device Stage feature in this version of Windows if your device supports this feature.
Device Stage lets you sync music, contacts, calendars, and other files and information with a compatible mobile device. It also allows you to perform other device-related tasks that vary depending on the device, such as creating ringtones for a mobile phone. What files and information you can sync depends on the type of device you have and what it supports. For example, you may be able to sync contacts and calendars with a smartphone, but not with a portable music player.
To see which types of files and information you can sync with your device, connect the device to your computer. If your device is compatible with Device Stage, this feature will open automatically. (If you've already set up your device to sync, Device Stage will open, but it will appear minimized on your Windows taskbar.) Device Stage will list various tasks you can perform with your device, including sync setup.
The Device Stage sync setup page

  • Device Stage is customized for each device by the manufacturer of that device, and displays different options for different devices. If you have more than one device connected to your computer, you can have more than one instance of Device Stage open at the same time.
  • To find out if a device will work with Device Stage, you can also check with the manufacturer or look at the device specifications. For a mobile phone, music player, digital camera, or other mobile device to work with Device Stage, the manufacturer must add compatible software (also called firmware) to the device.
