Why is my coffee weak?


If it is a drip maker, only gravity drives the hot water thru the coffee grinds. If the coffee is ground too fine, it immediately packs up and doesn't let water flow thru it and the water flows around the coffee instead of thru it.
Try using a coarser grind, and if not you can use a lot smaller amount of coffee and water. A smaller amount of coffee is easier to diffuse thru than a large amount.

Another thing is to slow down the water speed entering the coffee basket. I found the best way to do that is to use water just above freezing and place that extra cold water in the reservoir. The cold water takes extra time to be heated up by the coffee maker so less water is released over the coffee grinds per minute.

If your coffee maker overflows a lot, that is a good indicator that the grind is too fine and/or your coffee filters are too flimsy and are plugging up the channels in your coffee basket and the coffee can't enter the flask, so it overflows.

But the easiest way to check out your coffee maker is to use extra cold water and just run half batches (5 cup) of coffee instead of 10 cup

Numbers 2, 5, & 8 do not work on my Uniden 6.0 cordless handset.


IF YOU ARE mechanically inclined you can take the phone apart and under the rubber keypad and contact board, with a small amount of soapy warm water on a cloth rag, wipe the gold contacts and the board, the keypad can be lightly scrubbed with a tooth brush under running warm water..NOW dry everything ! reassemble. it might be soda pop that's blocking contact or dog drool ? (my dog says the cat did it !) any how this is your best chance, and is not that difficult of a task, works for tv remotes too but they are harder nut to crack, generally phones come right apart, tools needed (small screwdriver kit) good luck Patsy. and if'n I was of any help, a reply would be nice.. jay

Hello, I have a nokia 6100 and when I try to turn it on, all it shows is a blue screen. I went to the beach with it and when I arrived home it was like this. You think that has anything to do with it? And...


Well, possibly yes if the phone went into the water, or spilled water on it.
If you are saying that it is now blue screen, check first if it still emit sound, try pressing buttons and hear out sound coming from it(keypad tones etc), or try calling or texting the phone, if the phone rings or can be contacted or recieves messages, or you can even call using it, the damaged part is the LCD, have it replaced.
If the results are the other way around, possible that it may need re-programming or aso possible is a hardware fault, again have it checked by a technician.
Dont try to push the LCD in an attempt to fix it, it may cause more damaged than anything good, the LCD might crack, or even worse puncture or tamper the connection points of the LCD to the board, might get it grounded of some sort.
The best solution is have it checked by a technician. Dont try to open the phone by your self, because, again, the LCD connector of that particular phone is just a snap on with a thin connector board, wrong procedure in taking the lcd out could cause the connection on the board to go with the lcd connector, rendering it somewhat useless phone, because it is quite difficult to reattach the connector to a tampered board. 6dc0010.jpg

this is what will happen if you remove the lcd wrong

note the two pieces on top of the lcd, those are the connector of the lCD, and the connector that is connected to the board, it is now tampered.

I just got this razor phone and i drop it and now it want come on


this would indicate the lcd ribbon that connects the screen to the motherboard has been damaged or pulled free from the motherboard connector. The screen should light up still if its just cracked [not always, but a majority of the time].

Frozen keypad


The first thing to do is remove the battery for about two minutes, then put it back in and try it, most likely it will work just like new! If not does the phone have any history of liquid damage? Even a small amount of water, juice, pop, beer etc., can damage a cell phone however if you gently dry it out with the battery removed and without charging it by placing it about ten inches above a baseboard heater for a day or two, with it folded open, like you were on a call, it can often solve the problem. Good luck!

Three problems...


1. You may have water damage this would explain all of the problems. 2. I doubt very highly it's your carrier 3. If you have dropped your phone, your camera lens may be cracked causing the screen to pick up primary colors, or once again it's water damage. If the screen does different variations of color in different patterns or only partial images... the lens is cracked. Otherwise... YOU'VE GOT WATER DAMAGE... say goodbye to the Razor.
