Had the same problem with mine, so I took it apart and it turned out to be the internal Gears, they reach the max stop position and they jam up. You need to loosen the 4 main bolts, the bigger ones inside, just loosen them up enough to rotate the base by hand. At the same time they are loose and turning the base, you need to retighten them little by little. I found this centers and loosens the rotor base again. It worked for a year and a half, but then jammed up again. This time, it was the ball bearing just below the Gear cover. So I replaced it... had a hard time finding the little ******, but I did and it works fine so far. So you should be ok with just loosening it for now. Good Luck!!

How do i pick up hd channels?

You need to subscribe to cable or satellite. OR try an HD OTA (over the air) antenna. For best results you should get a directional antenna and point it in the direction of your nearest transmitter.

Indoor HD antennas don't work well unless you are very close to the transmitting tower. You really want to be on the roof, as high as practical without tall. Here is a fantastic resource that will tell you all you need to know about antennas

This site will help you point it.

If you have multiple transmitters that you want to pick up you may want to use an antenna rotor that will allow you to point the antenna in the direction of the transmitter without the hassle of climbing onto the roof.

I'm sure there are local antenna installers if you are uncomfortable with climbing your roof or running the wire.

Hope this helps.

Ignition timing for 96 dodge ram v8 5.9

Ignition timing on a 1996 Dodge Ram equipped with a 5.9L engine is controlled by the computer and is not adjustable. Attempts to adjust ignition timing by rotating the distributor will cause the fuel syncronization to be changed. If the distributor is moved or replaced, fuel syncronization should be checked and/or re-syncronized. This requires the use of a scan tool that can command the engine computer into "fuel sync" mode.

Hello, i have problem with flying back and forvard, becouse rear propeller does not work. What is wrong and can i fix it? Thanks :)

Yes if the rear propeller does not work the helicopter cannot be made to turn around. So it is important that the rear rotor works.
Now make sure that the drive is working to let the motor work , if controlled by the remote make sure the remote command works or is a fault in the remote.
Check the mechanics of the rotor movement. reset.

Phillips 28in wide screen tv. Picture OK through Sky, but has two moving distortions on ordinary aerial. Actual picture is good but the distortions moving up the screen make it very difficult to watch.

Even digital signals can be sensitive to electrical interference and using an antenna, you could be getting garbage from any nearby 'noisy' source. Something you might try is to temporarily switch off any electrical device in your home, one at a time and look for changes in the banding you have.
If the antenna you are using is outside (rooftop) and is rotor equipped, try changing the position to see if there is any increase or decrease of the problem. If an indoor antenna, rotate it slowly while watching the TV display for change. You may be able to determine the general direction of the source of interference. Some seemingly innocent devices that can cause problems; - Light dimmers/controllers - Poorly designed network routers - Cordless phones - Power supplies

Rotor not turning antenna

Most rotors have a brake, if yours has one, you have to hold the brake down then rotate.

Deactivating tv remote control codes

I am not certain these are the instructions for your specific remote. If you are brave, give this a try.

To Clear all Learned Commands under a mode
Clearing learned commands is helpful if, for example, you
replace your CD player with another brand or model. If
you had learned a feature from your old CD player’s
original remote on to this remote (such as RANDOM
PLAY), that feature would no longer work for your new
CD player. Should you wish to remove or clear one or
more “learned” commands, follow the steps below:
1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red
indicator turns on. Release the SETUP button.
2. Press and release the button for the mode you want
to clear (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks off.
3. Press and release the LEARN button TWICE. The
red indicator blinks off.
4. Press and release the SETUP button. The red
indicator turns off. All learned Commands under that
mode are now cleared.
Master Clear - To Clear all Learned
Commands under all modes
1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red
indicator turns on. Release the SETUP button.
2. Press and release the LEARN button TWICE. The
red indicator blinks off.
3. Press and release the SETUP button. The red
indicator turns off. All Learned commands in the
remote are now cleared.

If you would rather error on the side of caution, here is the link to Philips Customer Assistance. It will help you locate the correct model number and the appropriate User Manual.

I hope this helps, good luck!
