Question about Sanyo Katana SCP-6600 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Buttons won't work

My buttons on the phone decide when they want to work. Sometimes only the left side won't work, other times the phone won't even turn on! With time left untouched it will all of a sudden work fine. Right now nothing is working on the phone.

    I have a Sanyo Katana which was purchased 01/04/07, is still under warranty, has not gotten wet and the buttons do not work. Sprint is not helpful. They sold me phone insurance that I pay $3.00 for monthly and now that there is a problem they are referring me th the insurance company who wants me to pay an additional $50.00 before they will ship me a replacement phone in 2-3 business days. Sanyo wants me to ship the phone to their facility in Tennessee, pay for the postage and allow them 2-3 weeks to either repair or replace my phone provided they do not determine that I got the phone wet which then makes the warranty invalid.

    Better Business Practices anyone?

    Just switch my phone in the store already. Its still under warranty.

    ok i wanna call my boyfriend but i cant cause my freaking keypad on this stupid cell phone doesnt work. I only got it a lil bit wet when i answered it while i was in the shower and then the buttons just all the sudden stopped working.

How to capture best picture

That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either.
That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark.
The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.

My iphone 4 has been working great, just went to make a call and its dead. Won't turn on?

I am guessing that your phone probably shut itself down to prevent data loss. When was the last time you shut it off by holding the top power button until it says slide to power off and then powering it off? I may be wrong in this but,... Okay, so have the phone unplugged and I want you to press and hold both buttons at the same time, the Top Power and the Home Screen Button and just continue to hold them, sometimes even for like a minute but I'm guessing within like 30 seconds or so the Apple logo will appear then you can release the buttons. If this does work you can prevent this from happening again by power cycling your phone on a daily basis or at least every other day. :-) I hope it helps good luck.

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area

Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

Buttons not working

you need to have the phone flash and service take the phone to a mobile service center and have them do it there for you.
