Unless you are trained as an electronic engineer, I don't think you can replace a flash bulb in a camera.
The chance you get the correct "bulb" (it is a tube) is very slim. You could look on ifixit dod com if anyone already did change a flashlight in a camera. I think they also can help when you want to buy spare parts. But first ask what it will cost. Perhaps an external flash is cheaper than a repair. It also gives more light, and can be used on your next camera too.

How do I use my SD card for internal storage?


There are a quite a few options.



  1. Open Terminal Emulator and check with the 'df' command, how much space is left on your partitions. Is /data or /system full?


  2. Goto system/apps/all > 'Sort by size to' find out which apps eat

    up the most space.


  3. Check if you have big size apps installed where you could change data location within the app to sdcard. Thinking of navigation apps and games. Every app where you have to download additional data to the actual app.


  4. Make sure you use the sdcard for media like photos (camera settings) music and video.


  5. CM has a built-in system to move apps to SD under settings/apps/on sdcard. Check apps that are big and you use rarely and are not interactive first. Reason: If you still use the USB feature those moved apps are not available to system anymore and are least likely to cause trouble.


  6. Another option is to use the app Foldermount. Use it to move certain locations to SD like the Download folder. Or the DCIM folder if the camera doesn't support sdcard location in settings.



  7. Use the app Link2SD which is able to move every bit from an app (including app data) to SD. It has a good overview on how much space an app really needs. You will have to create a separate partition on the SD card for that to work.

Start troubleshooting by redoing the "mechanic's" work, making sure that the correct and unblown fuses are in the correct places.

My audio did not work anymore


If the audio was working earlier and than all of a sudden quit working I suggest making sure that it is plugged into the correct port, than restart the computer and try to play a song than. If it still doesn't work, sounds like your on-board audio card is finished. ALSO make sure your volumes aren't muted.

Convergence IC + Resistor swap = Blue light clicking noise


Good Day,
It sounds like you may have slightly diconnected a cable. Look for the large RED cable/wire that goes to the Blue tube and make sure that they are very secure. When doing this make sure the TV is off.

Good Luck, BIG IRISH.

The continuous blink code indicates some failure in communication between the computer in the set and the big signal-processing chip that controls most of the TV's video functions. Since the set fell, it's probably due to a either cracked circuit board or a broken picture tube.

If the board is cracked, it might repairable if the broken circuit traces can be found and patched. If the tube is broken (because the shock of the fall cracks the glass neck of the tube and allows air to leak in), it's time to replace the TV.

There's really nothing you can do on your own to fix this. Your best bet is to see if a professional can come out and give you an estimate. (Or use this as an excuse to get new flat-screen which would take up a lot less room!)
