Airforce WAP-35DIH A/C unit not working

I had the same problem, i just fixed mine. it's easy. unplug it first and give it a moment to discharge the capacitors so you dont get a shock..
1. remove the back cover by unscrewing and pulling it up and out. it may take some wiggling.
2. unscrew and remove the front cover - screws are at the top inside the back of the unit
3. face the front of the unit. in the bottom left corner is a silver tube held in place by 2 screws. remove the bottom screw and slide the silver tube out to the left so its dangling on its wires.
4. beneath the silver unit is a panel held by 1 screw. unscrew it. the panel is long and flat...coax it out of the front of the machine from underneath everything it sits on. dont disconnect the wires tho. the panel is long, you can push from the back of the machine as well as pull from the front. wriggle it out.
5. a piece of rectangular polystyrene will come with it . this is the float. on top of the long panel is a (reddish) switch. as the water rises, the polystyrene floats up and pushes on the switch.
6. clean off the polystyrene and the water tray beneath it, check that the flap flaps freely.
7. carefully (live wires around!) plug in the air con and check that with the flap dropped down (not pushed up) the aircon unit works.
8 if so, hooray, reassemble everything. job done.

My phone doesn't ring or vibrate also the speaker doesn't work

Hi,there are three things you need to check..

The vibration..
The ringer...
The flex....

Hi, what makes nothing happens even when trying different levels of the vibration is because the ******** of the phone that makes the phone vibrate when someone calls is damaged.

You need to replace the ******** before it will respond again. It is located inside the phone,always round in nature.

When replacing the ******** of the phone,you have to be careful when unscrewing the phone screws.

Get a phone screw, unscrew necessary screw off, take the back cover off locate the ********, (round like the ringer)But the difference is clear.Go to any phone repair store around your area and purchase another phone by tell them the model and make of the phone.

After replacing the ********, screw back the screws and your done.

Would advice, if no knowledge about phone repairs, please contact a skill full personnel for help.

What causes phones not to ring out is when the ringer that makes you hear a tone when someone calls is damaged and does not work properly again.

The ringer is located inside the phone.You can get access into the phone by unscrewing the phone with a phone screw. It a little bit technical when unscrewing the phone.Just be careful not to damage the phone.

How to unscrew the phone.

Remove the back cover of the phone where the battery is,
then remove also the battery, at the edge you will see where the screw are located.(look closely).

After unscrewing,the screws, Open from the size of the phone,you will see where the ringer is located. It's usually round in nature. Remove and cover up the phone. (you can get a replacement ringer from any phone repair and sale of part store around you.

Ones your through with the ringer , 'wa la' Your done..

Note:if you can't loose the phone, in other not to cause damage to the phone,please contact a skill full personnel for assistance.Thanks.

Before you replace it,you can also clean up the ringer ,there might be dirt stopping it from working properly.

Hope it helped......
The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen an also the keypads of the phone and also the ringer and vibration...

The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.

After replacing the phone flex, your done.

Also it might be the screen of the phone. But in other to know if it's the screen, you will need to test a new flex.

You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya...

Nokia E71 - Keyboard frozen

Your firmware seems to have got corrupted. get it re-installed. Do not do it yourself. What happens is that when you do it over the net, only the corrupted files are replaced. If you get it done from Noia Care, the have the download of the whole SW. Over 200 MB of download in total. The install is full and total. It takes about half an hour.
