Re: HELP!!! I have no clue what to do!!!

I suspect your funny little symbol is a bluetooth icon. Dig down into your settings menus and try two things. First, look for a list of profiles and see if you can select one with a name like "General". Hopefully that will be enough to make the phone work. If that doesn't look for the Bluetooth settings, and try disabling Bluetooth. A.

Hi,my phone wires have came out of the conection box on the wall,please could you tell me weare they go ,i have white wire with blue stripes going to A,blue wire with white stripes going to B, nothing...

In "phone technician talk" the BLUE pair is #1 (pair), the ORANGE pair is #2 and GREEN is #3. This is standard telephone wire in the USA. If you live in the USA and you have one telephone line in your home, the Blue pair (One wire will be blue with a white stripe and the other will be white with a blue stripe) is where the dial tone should be. (This is practice, NOT LAW) Again, if you are in the USA, this wire should terminate in a RJ-11 (common name) box fastened to the wall. Your telephone device should have a modular plug connection (also commonly called a RJ-11) which should fit into the telephone "Jack".

What should you do? If your situation is described above, plug the phone into the jack. If the RJ-11 is damaged, purchase a new wire and install it into the telephone. Strip about 1/4 inch of insulation from the first pair. Put the hand set to your ear, touch the wire to the blue pair on the back of the jack (inside might be a good word here) If you hear dial tone, yo have made the connection. Loosen the screws and attach the wires. If yours does not have screws but rather little slices of metal to attach the wire to, you can purchase the special tool for this at the BIG box store for a buck or two. OR ... you might make the connection with a pair of needle nose pliers. Be aware, if the phone rings while you are doing this, the ringer operates at 60 volts and you will get a tingle. How to avoid that? Do you have a second telephone in the house? Take it off the hook which will make the line busy so it cannot ring.

If you are not in the USA, similar principles apply, touch the wires together until you get a dial tone, make the connection using what ever device is approved in your country. Once you find the dial tone, take the second phone off the hook so you will not get shocked if the phone rings.

I hope this response is what you expected ... thanks for your inquiry @

I am trying to connect a second phone line to a box, I have the right wire for the first line( have dialling tone) What colours are the wires for the second line, which one goes into A and which one goes...

If you have tone on line one you should be using colors red/green. The 2nd line will be using colors black/yellow. Make sure that the cable is going back to the telephone company's bridge (the box outside the house).

If you are using Cat5 then the wire colors will be white/blue-blue/white the 2nd line will be white/orange-orange/white.

I know this sound a little confusing but the attached tables and picture should help.

Shatterd phone screen!!!!

Hi,i think the inner touch pad of the LCD screen is bad and it needs to be replaced,here is a detailed guide to help you disassemble your LG arena;
Tools required: Phillips screwdriver, mobile phone opening tool, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card, double sided tape.
STEP 1 Remove your back cover, battery, sim, memory card etc. Remove the four circled screws.
STEP 2 Run your mobile phone opening tool around the join of the front and back of the phone. Start at the top and then pull the phone apart when you can get enough of a grip.
STEP 3 A ribbon connector (circled) needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up to unplug. Next, peel the blue sticker off.
STEP 4 The circled ribbon connector needs to be disconnected. Just flick the black latch up and pull the orange ribbon away from the circuit board.
STEP 5 Pull the circuit board towards you. A little force is required but be careful as a cable is still connected to the board and you don't want to damage it.
STEP 6 on the left is a connector that disconnected when you pulled the circuit board towards you. Remove the screw, in the upper right corner. Disconnect the two ribbons beside the camera. Each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug. Lever up the white wire above the battery slot . Remove the blue sticky tape above the white wire.
STEP 7 Lift away the part above the camera. The ribbon connector needs to be disconnected. Just flick the black latch up and pull the orange ribbon away from the circuit board.
STEP 8 Pull the circuit board away from the phone. Note that the connectors,disconnect when you remove the circuit board. Lever up the wire at the base of the phone. Remove the 2 screws at the edges of the base . Peel back the silver sticker
STEP 9 Use your mobile phone opening tool to lever up the metal part bounding the screen . It's stuck down with double sided tape so using a hairdryer to heat the part may make it easier to remove
STEP 10 Slide something like the edge of a credit card or guitar plectrum under the right edge of the touch screen. Again, this part is held down with double sided tape which may be easier to remove if you heat it up a little first. You should replace the double sided tape when you put the phone back together.
STEP 11 Lift the touch screen from right to left.
STEP 12 Lever the two long stoppers out and then use the recesses as levering points to lift the screen out.
STEP 13 You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
The screen costs only 39USD.
Thanks and take care

Ref: bluetooth symbol on continously draining the battery

its not the bluetooth symbol, it's the GPRS symbol, you can desactivate it by doing *#4777*8665# and then desactivate it and also clicking "activate manually' or something like that...

Exclamation point

That's the notification icon. It indicates that you've "received 2 or more different types of notifications: Voice Missed Calls / Schedule / Call Alarm / Alarm Clock".

Check your Missed Alerts on the phone menu, your alarm clock settings in menu > tools and failing that, try going back through your calendar to see if you've missed any meetings or something there.

Nokia 6280

I have a nokia 6280. My camera only randomly works now. There is a little symbol of a blue and white chequered flag and also a little camera symbol next to it, plus an empty bar, rather like a thermometer but with nothing written in it that has a - on the left and a + on the right. In addition, there is a number in the corner either placed top left or bottom left of the screen, depending on whether the screen is on portrait or landscape. When the status informs me that the camera has failed and is now on standby, there is a strike (forward slash) line running through the camera icon. This has only just started happening. The battery is full. Any ideas please?
