Question about T-Mobile Dash Smartphone

1 Answer

I think I have the Solution??!

Okay, so my neice had problem's with the dash..shutting off, ect...
She had enough and wanted the Behold problem, I exchanged the dash for a new one ...yesterday it arrived...SAME exact problem! Couldn't even get to the home screen until....I looked around here to trouble shoot, cuz T-mobile is truly useless at technical support...and honestly? I don't believe it's the battery...I have phones/batteries 6 year's old..and they STILL work!
So I figured... it was the Charger itself.
Low and behold, I used my blackberry pearl...same as the motorola razor adaptor...and so has NOT shut off!!!!
I hope? this help's someone....
Like I said...I have never had a problem with any of my phones...nor the batteries....I believe it's a defective charger...'s still working!!!!!

    That's great! I had the same problem with my Dash & Tmobile. You are right about no help from them. I spent $400. on a different phone (so it wouldn't extend my contract). I'm just waiting until July & I can be rid of them! Yeah :-). Thanks for posting.

I've bought used dashes off of ebay for the last few months with the same common problems and a software upgrade fixed all of them.

This is an awesome phone with the right upgrades.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox and for the last few weeks my check engine last has been ON. It's currently at the Chevy dealership because they think it's either the therm or ECT sensor, but can't...

If the ECT is "spiking" high (temperature going way up) the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will shut the fuel off. There may be a problem with the ECT or the circuits to the ECT.

HOWEVER, another thing to look for (you may want to relay this to the guys at the dealership) is to watch for other sensor circuits also spiking. I personally use aftermarket scanning equipment that can "graph" the computer data from several sensors at the same time. (the graphs make it really easy to see if the sensor is getting spiked) I'm pretty sure the dealer there should also have this capability. Anyway, the last time I had one doing something similar to this, I found that there were several sensors getting spiked at the same time. A little investigation showed that not only was the fuel shutting off, but the misfire counters were incrementing on one of the cylinders when the problem occured. It did not misfire long enough or often enough to set a misfire code. Replacing the ignition coil on the cylinder that was "incrementing" fixed the vehicle (including the erratic temperature gauge). Apparently, the faulty ignition coil was what was spiking the sensor circuits.

My samsung behold will not turn on or charge. please help

Hi,i think the problem is from the batterry contact with the phone,
try using your battery with another phone of its kind,if it come on then the problem is not from your battery,or better still try packing the battery contact behind the phone with a piece of tissue paper,if it comes on then the problem is from the battery contact which probably have shifted as a result of you rolling on it.
you might have to contact o phone repairer to help you tighten it,or if you have the tools and think you can do it yourself,go on,but you have to be very carefull

take care

How do I iopen the hood on 360 modena when I shut power off by mistake?

Manual release cable under the drivers side dash. It's actually convienent enough that I normally use it instead of the electric release button most times.

Samsung behold keeps shutting on and off

Try removing the battery for a few minutes, then connect it again and turn the phone on. If the problem remains, take the phone to your operator for a repair.

Logitech wireless mouse

First I'd reinstall the CD software that came with the Keyboard and mouse. Then I'd try the following.
Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.

Also check to see if you have enough memory to run all these functions.
Hope this helps. Bud

Creative Zen Sleek Buttons dont Work

I gave it a whack on the back of the MP3 player out of frustration, and lo and behold! it works fine! i don't think this is a very orthodox method, but i'm a bit happier now! I wouldn't recommend this as an everyday method of fixing it, but it's helped me.
