Tip & How-To about Cameras

How to Clean a Camera or Electronic Gadet's to make them look new again?

First: Go to a Local Computer Shop and ask them for IPA (Isopropyl Alchol) or Rubbing alchol (It's just a mild chemical which clean's almost anything)

Second: Prepare your device
Whether it's a camera or some other device take the battery off!

Third: Cleaning
Take some cotton or Lint free cloth which you can get from any local store for cheap!! And damp the cloth or cotton with the liquid. Dont damp it full as you will require the other half of the cloth to buff it!!

Wipe each and every bit of the device dont worry even if it goes into some gap it is anti static liquid it wont even matter if u pour and whole bottle on it when it's On!

Then after wiping your might observe some buff marks just take a dry cloth and wipe it again!! It should Look shiny and new and amazingly all dust's off!!

Precaution: Dont drink the Liquid :P
And as i say you can pour the whole bottle on the device don't do that with any camera but other devices are good to go!! If the liquid goes into the camera's lens it will look like a dry oil patch but it good to clean the upper layer of lens with the liquid.

Tip's:- to clean hard to reach places you Q-tips or Ear buds to reach thos places. :-)

thanks and Enjoy cleaning your device

hp desk jet 450 will not load paper properley when printing

Only thing you can really do with something like this is.... Unplugg it, blowout all the dust, use some cutips / rubbing alchol to clean the heads and anything that you would think "grabs" the paper. Turn it on and hope for the best!

Sounds like the switch that tells the cpu when it's open or closed is going bad. On most laptops there is a little switch that protrudes from your keyboard (usually in upper corners). Try cleaning it with isopropyl alchol(rubbing alchol) and a q-tip and see what happens. If you can't locate the switch on your model get back to me and i'll research a little deeper for you. Hope this helps
