Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Trying to install my TVconverter box, I pulled out from the shelves big speakers, records, binders, etc., & crawled on hands & knees into the shelves to put one end of a cable into the antenna on the wall, & the con.box fell down when I was trying to put the other end of the cable into the c/box! I put my head into the shelf & finally got the c/box back up on the TV. Then I tried to turn on the TV, & it said, "no signal". So now, my TV won't work. I haven't had any TV for 3 weeks. I am 87 yrs. old.

Try swapping the cables going into the rear of the converter, you may have the incoming cable going to the output of the box and the cable to the tv in the input of the box.

You will need to run the setup to allow your converter box to detect your local channels. You may have a "Setup" button, or may have to get to it through a "Menu" button on the converter box remote.

I have many ring binders and I don't know if they should be presented on my bookcase or hide them behind closed doors


It depends where you put them - if you plan to put it in your home office, that make sense and I don't think that you need to hide them. Remember that there are some very cool colorful looking binders and you can use them to add a little color and character to your home office. If you are planning on the living room - it is a different story and then maybe you should consider bookcases with doors.

How to install sound system for big halls?


I suggest you get a professional installation because depending upon what type of equipment you need, microphones, amps, record and play back devices and speakers etc. The various pieces of equipment needs to be matched for best performance. The placement of speakers and microphones to reasonable audio levels without acoustic feedback problems. All this requires a professional especially for a large hall.

When ever i try to record a video on facebook it will record but it says audio is not being recorded...also when i try to record videos just on the web cam it freezes. any suggestions?


Make sure your webcam mic is set as the default mic on your computer - this is especially important if you have a laptop also with a built-in mic

Plug in the webcam
TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

The freezing problem could be for a variety of reasons - internet connection - lack of memory etc.
Ensure you have Microsoft DirectX installed and its up to date
If you installed from a CD your Logitech software itself may need updating

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

You can also download and run this webcam diagnostic software - dont worry too much about the first alert - I always get that.
Reboot your webcam software by unplugging the cam for a couple of seconds before running the diagnostic utility

I have just bought myself a very old unloved looking bernina record 530 for $5. Would love to clean it up and service it myself if u think this is possable...also it has knee control which is abit touch n...


Hi, I also have a 530 Record which has sewed an "illegal amount of km's!" Get a copy of the manual thru' the web, you won't find one for the 530 but the 530-2 & 532-2 manual will suit as they are very similar models. Make sure you oil it at designated places- too little AND too much both can give problems. Check condition of the belts. The machine should sew at a reasonable speed, if not or you think there's a problem with the knee-control, it could well be that the motor is on it's way out, (like mine). I'm trying to get mine rewired. Good luck & let us know how you go! Sam

One speaker no sound


I just want to confirm that the solution on another page from francis 8 works perfectly ( http://www.fixya.com/support/t3709832-speakers_stopped_working_cannot ). We have two sets of Creatures in our offices, one had been shelved (by someone less persevering than me) due to this problem years ago and my set started this trouble a few days ago. Troubleshot everything, every cable, setting, combination, spare speakers etc - nothing worked. Opening the offending speaker and pulling back the metal weight behind the speaker cone was the solution for BOTH of our units.
Big smiles all around :-)
Note - When you've opened the plastic shell and loosened the speaker from its mounting, the the big round metal piece/magnet sits within the actual speaker 'cage', slightly behind the speaker cone. It's tight but movable and can be pulled all the way back as far as it can go inside it's housing, away from the speaker cone.
Not sure why it gets pulled forward, but it isn't fixed in position and so could clearly get bumped by dropping the speaker or a reasonable impact of some sort. Once bumped forward it would severely limit cone movement and therefore volume.

My speakers stopped working. Cannot increase the volume, have to put ear very close to hear a faint sounds


I fixed a similar problem I was having. It requires a little work.

Take out the four screws from under the broken speaker. Carefully remove the cover, separating the speaker from the base. The two are wired together so don't pull them apart with force. Then remove the single screw, which is much larger the the previous four, and separate the speaker from the top cover.

If you chose you can remove the wires from the speaker, they just snap on, but its not required.

What I found is the speaker issue is not with the wire or the power, but the speaker it's self. On the back there is a big round metal piece. On my speaker that piece was pushed towards the front of the speaker. When I looked at the good speaker, that big piece was all the way back. So I simply pulled it back and presto, instant fix!

I hope this works for you.
