Question about Sony Ericsson W550i Cellular Phone

Sony w760 connector seems loose, audio doesn't play properly

I might have messed up the connector on the phone by buying a cheap converter that plugs into the connector and provides a normal 3.5mm audio jack. The plastic on the converter was stiffer than the stuff on sony brand products like the usb cable or the charger cable. The converter didn't want to go in unless I put a good deal of pressure on it. Now, both the sony connectors and the cheap converters don't connect firmly to the phone, so when I try to play audio, it either doesn't play at all or I only get one side but not the other. I can't tell if the loose connection is at the point of the contacts or if it is between the connector and some internal phone parts. The connector on the phone seems to move a little bit when I plug stuff in.

Sounds like you have loosened up the plug on the phone with your audio converter. If it's still under warranty, use it! Don't mention you have used a cheap connector, afterall you're not 100% sure that was the real cause. If that's not an option, then you can make all your plug legs slightly wider so they'll hook into the phone better. Try use a hairdryer to slightly soften up the tips of the plugs that go into the phone, make sure you don't heat it up too much or it'll deform. Then gently press the tips straight down on a table and very slightly widen the tips. When the tips are wider, they should hook onto the phone better. Good luck!

How do i download my pictures from my handycam trv49e so that my tapes can be reused

Search Google and found this:
The Sony CCD-TRV49 camcorder doesn't have a digital output, so you have to capture and convert the analog composite video signal and audio signals. On the PC side you need an analog video capture board, a sound card to capture the audio and a video capture/editing software. You can also find on the market external USB devices that contains all these things.

The composite video is the yellow RCA connector that goes straight to your capture board.
The left audio is the white RCA connector and the right audio is the red RCA connector. These are mixed on a stereo jack plug that enters into soundcard input socket.

I need to know how to connect my 900 MHz Digital Hybrid Wireless Headphones Model No. CT411

See if there is any audio output connections on the front or rear, they will be round connectors one red one white otherwise known as Phone or RCA. You may then require a small adaptor to change the two connectors to on 3.5mm jack plug, you can buy these from any electronics shops.

Sony ICF-DS11iP doesn't play my Ipod touch. Radio, Alarm, Ipod Charging functions work. Pls suggest a solution

Please check the iPod connector on the Sony. If you can wiggle it, it is probably a bad connection. These models Sony radios have the connector directly soldered on a PCB and it tends to get loose after a while due to connecting/disconnecting the iPod. If it is loose, the connector needs to be resoldered back into place.

I have had the following circumstances when there was a bad connection:
- iPod will not be charged
- iPod can not play music through the Sony
- iPod will play music through the Sony, but an iPhone won't

My ps2 turns on but shows no display

It's likely that your RCA cables (red white yellow that go in the tv) are just not plugged in properly or the connector into the ps2 is loose. Jiggle both of them around, and if that doesn't work, buy a new cable for it. You can buy it at your local pawn shop pretty cheap I believe.

Sony ericsson w760

It means HSPDA (High Speed Data Packet Access) which is faster than 3G. So "3G" has been replaced by an "H". For the consumers, it means 3G or faster, that's all!
