Stop red light flashing to delete 1 missed call


Hi , First of all, Level 1 Notifications are sent to the smartphone to indicate when important or urgent messages are sent. To disable this or turn off,
Depending on the phone you are using: (the steps below are for Blackberry)
  1. Go to your RingTone Profile setting (the one where you change what kind of ring/vibrate that you want)
  2. Scroll down and click on Advanced
  3. Click into your Ringtone Profile
  4. Click on "Level 1 Messages"
  5. Click on "Repeat Notification" and change it from "LED Flashing" to "none"
  6. (Make sure that you do it for what is called "In Holster" and "Out of Holster")
Hope this helps. On another note; sometime, when you delete a call while the missed call is Bolded... the red light will continue to flash. What happened was, the link between the light and the deleted call has unsynchronized and therefore caused the red light to constantly blink. There is one way to restore it back to normal, but no guaratees.... place another voice call to yourself, (use a landline phone to make the call to your mobile). Let the call complete and have it show up as missed. Go into your missed calls and click on it to change the status to "read". It should restore back to a green flashing light. IF not, you have to either wait 10 mins for it to stop, or pull the battery out to soft reset the device back to normal operation.

My dish remote does not work on my new RCA tv. How do I fix that?


Hey Vernon Long,

We would have to program your remote to your RCA TV. I have provided the steps to program the remote below along with a few codes to try. You can view the link provided for more codes if the ones I list don't work!

Link: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/apps/remotecodes.aspx

Codes: 502, 646, 633

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Our remotes aren't guaranteed to work all types of equipment, but if the codes don't work let me know here and I will try some more steps with you!

The current version of the ps3 firmware has a “recovery console”.
You access it by

1. Start with having the system in standby (redlight is on)

2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.

3. Press and hold the power button again and keep holding, it will beep as it turns on and then it will double beep. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)

4. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button

You will now have a screen with these options

1. Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
2. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.

CHOOSE THIS ONE 3.Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
5. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
6. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System



IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CHOOSE THE WRONG OPTION HERE OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA. The one that fixed my blu-ray drive is option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM


I REPEAT CHOOSE RESTORE FILE SYSTEM


After this, it is going to restart and bring up a screen reading something like “you have Corrupted System Data. Your PS will now replace this data” Then you choose continue and that should be it.

This option reinstalls the system files and drivers inside the PS3 with the original ones that are stored on your hard drive. In this case, it replaced a corrupted driver for the blu ray drive thus fixing my issue and hopefully yours!! This option will only replace all system files thus saving you from loosing any data that’s stored on your hard drive. Again this option does nothing to your hard drive it reads a file from the drive and rewrites it to the PS3 system.

Here is a video of the recovery screen.

If you want a more technical understanding of what this is really doing continue reading. DO NOT NEED TO READ THIS TO COMPLETE REPAIR. The PS3 does not boot from your hard drive as a computer does. It has a flash memory like a cell phone that stores all system files and system firmware updates that you get when the PS3 updates. This is why reformatting your hard drive will not fix your problem, none of the system files are stored on your hard drive (ex. XMB, system firmware, etc.) nor do they run from the drive. However, your hard drive does contain a full backup of your SYSTEM files and thus when you choose option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM it rewrites the original system files from your drive (which aren’t corrupted) back to the flash memory which is corrupted thus fixing the problem.

Help for the airbag icon flashing -- is it obviously serious, or could it be a wiring issue or other simple fix? It has just begun a system of multiple flashes and then off for several minutes OR a solid...


upon ignition on the airbag diagnostic module will scan the system for any fault, if there is a fault the airbag indicator will flash. The first set of flash signifies the first digit then a pause the next set of flash for the second digit.Combine these two digits denotes the fault code i.e (two rapid flashes means 2 then a pause followed by three flashes means 3 combine these will read 23 this is the fault code but you need to consult this in the repair manual for ford cars to get the particular fault.Repetitions of 5 sets will occur then steady light on for the airbag.Just replace the instrument cluster and replace the busted bulbs for odometer and turn indicator

Bad tracks


These tracks are corrupt Delete all Format
Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format a couple of times hope this works

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer first

Can not import video from camera to moviemaker


Hi there. You can't import the video because your camera records and puts out video in mpeg2 format. Windows Movie Maker will not read that format. But...good news! - Here are two things you can do to work around that problem.

1. Use the software that came with the camera to capture the video and import the resulting file into Movie Maker. OR
2. Connect your camera to your computer using an analog connection (like S-video cable) and capture the video using Movie Maker.

That will fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if you have any other questions and if you're satisfied with my solution, don't forget to rate it a fixya.

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger


Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.
