Question about GPS

1 Answer

There's a black line across the bottom of my screen which moves all info up about 1/4" and throws off selection of letters or numbers. Also just lately the screen brightness has dimmed. Can you help?

    I just did upgrade my GPS, but the line was there before I did that. The upgrade (new maps Etc) cast about 70 bucks. Worked fine except for the line. After help from Guru the screen went blank and we could not open the unit as was told. Therefore the unit is no good. I purchased a new unit today and am returning it tomorrow because I cannot turn it on of off unless it is plugged into my computer. Thanks anyway. Bob Gilby

Hello,
GPS softwares have been changed lately and many of them need upgrades.
You need to upgrade your GPS software.
Go to the GPS company's website and look for the software. This should fix your issue.
Regarding brightness of your screen, it could have been told if you had mentioned your GPS company. But upgrading the software would set the default settings to your GPS in which case the brightness would be normal.

Good luck,
Please rate the solution.

~regards,
Jegan

Very thin black vertical line moving across tv screen left to right on tv


The screen voltage to the picture tube is more than normal. Adjust it by the help of screen pot-meter integrated with Line Output Transformer. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Check this link and select the site named above. View it in 'Flip card' option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu at the left top corner or the display window. It will make search easy.

I have an old Sharp Model # 27A-S100 I have a Black Line running across the bottom of my screen from left to right 22 1/2" length and 3 1/4" in height


If this line does not go all the way across the screen then I will bet you this is an easy fix. Press the menu button on the remote control. The menu will hopefully show up over-top the black. Search your menu for the closed caption setting (usually under audio settings menu) and turn closed caption OFF. Hopefully this fixes your issue. Cheers.

Extra horizontal lines on my document.


Have a real good cleanup of the ink that was (presumably) leaking from the old black cartridge. Remove the cartridges from the cartridge carrier and use kitchen paper towel to soak up any ink in the bottom. Give the cartridge outlet holes a dab on the towel as well. Replace the cartridges promptly.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back. You should now be able to (carefully) move the print head by hand. Place a layer of paper towel on the printer track, and move the print head across it to mop up any surplus ink. Move the print head across to the left out of the way and use kitchen towel to mop up surplus ink in the Print Head parking area.

Now turn the printer on and carry out a cleaning cycle (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are there any extra black lines in evidence now? If so, try another 1 or 2 cleaning cycles and nozzle check. Black lines gone now?

If you still have the black lines, come back with a new comment.
