Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

Hi... i have a problem... my iphone had a ramdomly shutting off.. and it cannot open... pls help me..

This may be because your iphone has a depleted lithium battery, it could be problems with your firmware, or possibly short circuiting because you dropped it or something. I suggest that you restore your phone in itunes to see if any of your problems get fixed. I don't exactly know what you mean by it cannot open, but if you mean unlock, then I still suggest you restore so you can get your phone back to brand new working conditions.

Places of simcard in LG model cx9200

  • Power off your cell phone.

  • Remove the back battery plate. Depending on the make and model of the cell phone, you will either have to slide the panel off by applying pressure with your thumb or by sliding a small latch and then removing the plate.

  • Take out the battery.

    Look for the SIM card door. It will be shiny, silver and will be clearly marked. You'll also be able to see your SIM card.

  • Open your SIM card door by sliding it open (follow the arrow directions on the door) and sliding out your SIM card.

    Samsung Alias shutting off

    RIANAS - the firmware may need to be reflash in the phone to correct this issue.

    GUEST - It would be best to flash the phones firmware but if the problems are still there after reflashing change the models you are using.
