I currently have a LG900G, the signal strength has been extremely weak since I've had it. I have not been able to find a solution to this problem as it causes dropped calls and sometimes does regi

Hello Dennis,

I had a similar problem with an LG 800 phone I had to get a "Wilson Electronics 815225 Sleek Booster Single" for it to use the phone in the basement apartment where I live and it works great I get three to four bars now. However it costs about 80.00 at Walmart, and Amazon, I couldn't use the reception booster while away from home though so I found out that Samsung, phones work much better here and most other areas as well. I hope this helps

Midland 40 channel 1001 CB radio. I can talk and receive with other units as long as they are close (maybe to 200 meters or so). After the signal gets a bit weaker to where less lights lite up, I can see...

The light you see lighting up dictate how much power you have on transmit (TX) and the strength of your receive (RF) The more lights on transmit the stronger your signal. The more lights lit up on receive dictates how hard they are hitting your radio. Either by power or distance. Is this setup in your car or at you home? Many use a mobile CB in there home off a power supply. Either way I am very concerned about you only getting out a couple blocks. I will help you fix this. First your antenna is a major part of your set up. Spare nothing when buying this. I recommend Wilson 300 or higher for the mobile and IMAX 2000 for home. Some Wilson antennas tune and some don't follow the instructions that come with it and ask me if you are unsure. A good 50ohm coax is necessary too. RG58 or better. For just the CB in the mobile RG58 will do just fine. Now we get to your SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) which deals with return loss and reflection coefficient. To high of an SWR and you will lose a lot of your signal and you can burn up your radio. Your radio does not come with an SWR meter so you will need to purchase an SWR/watt meter and put it inline. The coax from your antenna will run into your meter and then run another coax from your meter to the radio and follow the instructions on how to adjust and check your SWR. So now we are at the point where your set up is properly set up and now to tune that radio up. These radios do not carry much power or have much modulation. The limiter in your CB is what limits the modulation. In your CB there is a pot that will adjust this. Here is what you need to do to get more power and more modulation out of your CB. VR2 is the modulation pot. Adjust this for maximum modulation. Now spread the coils marked LT5/LT12 just a little and spread the coils marked LT7/LT11 a lot. Being a new radio it should not need a receive adjustment at all. Moding the receive includes jumping the PLL and I don't recommend that. You may try to replace that potentiometer but outside of this and the steps above you should have a great CB when completed. Good luck, this should fix your CB set up just fine.

This is most likely caused by an overload from the amp. Depending on what setting you have it on, you should adjust the gain and any other boosters to about midrange. If you put it all the way it will cut out as you're experienceing. Try to lower the gain and such and see if that helps. If that's not the case, then your amp may be damaged and can't handle the load.

Can I join green and red power leads to a single power source?

Yes, but it will be on all the time, when the green is connected the kit will start to search for the phone and when power is removed it will turn off.

The left rear turn signal is not working, I

You may have an issue with the directional signal switch in the steering column. Power to this goes thru that switch. It usually required removing the steering wheel to gain access to correct. You may not want to tackle this yourself unless you have a manual and the proper tools. I had to buy a special too to remove the gear selector to gain access. Only used it twice and had to get it from a Snap-On mobile truck salesman. What a pain!

98 chev 2500 no brake lights on box works on center of cab no turn signals on box. blinking fast on front but working hazards work on front not on rear if u apply breaks with hazards they stop working

Possible cause is the connector is disconnected and the bumper area. Main ground wire may be loose, check manual for ground location. Also the wiring loom may have been damaged between the rear lights and the front connector. The front lights will blink fast when the rear lights do not work. There could also be a problem with the turn signal switch. Check with the wiring schematics to see which wires to check for power.

Directionals stopped working

If you have no turn signal operation check the turn signal flasher unit. More often than mot this will be the problem. Your emergency flashers operate on another circuit with another flasher unit. The flasher units are very cheap to purchase and easy to gain access too.

Dual monitors in XP Pro - HP Pavilion zd7000 laptop & I-Inc CY199 monitor

in that case u need a video hub, like : display booster. we call it a vga display booster. this may increase the quality of a picture. because when we attach any display unit, the image appears in two portion. it's gain is to low. to make it more sharp, monitor itself add some colour to that picture. the vga signal is fixed from inside of the monitor with resistance, so u can't make any variations in picture. that's why u guys need that VGA booster.
