SOURCE: how do I change the

Changing mobile phone housing are usually quite straight forward. First take off the back of the phone where the battery goes in next try to determine if the back casing of the phone is screwed to the front. If yes locate the screws and take them out to allow for ease of removal of both the front and the back. Although often times the casing is usually still held in place by clipings which are in built with the casing.
Also you must know that the screws which are used for mobile phones are mostly different from the conventional star of flat screw drivers. So incase your screw driver does not open it do not force it as the screw combination might be different.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

SOURCE: My daughters new phone Pantech Ease P2020 (bought

Unfortunately, as I myself have discovered, the battery lifeof Pantech Ease is not up to par even for light use. I bought a beautiful used Pantech Ease on-line from Mobile Karmafor 50 dollars and the (used) battery that came with it was verydisappointing. They very promptly sentme another Pantech battery that is about the same as the other one. I had to charge them twice a day unless Iused ATT Navigator GPS, which needed a recharge after only using it for a 20minute drive. Anytime you use a 3Gnetwork for ANY kind of data the drain on the battery is tremendous. The touch screen is also a drain; it isbetter to enter information on the slide out keyboard. Using Bluetooth is also a big drain on thebattery life.I have a background in electricity and electronics and havea good understand on the proper use, charging and maintenance ofbatteries. However, for me, theLithium-Ion is a critter that I was unfamiliar with. Therefore, I turned to the best and most highly technical sourceof battery information I know of and read an article and great discussion foundat battery called "charging lithium ionbatteries" - This is a summary of what I learned there:Li-Ion Batteries do not have a memory like some other typesof batteries, which is a good thing. Therefore there is no advantage to completely discharging thebattery. In fact, it is notrecommended. Luckily there is normallya battery monitoring circuit in the phone that prevents a "complete"discharge of a battery. If these batterieswere ever completely discharged they would not be able to accept a charge froma standard charger. The use of specialcharging equipment would be required to hopefully "revive" thebattery.The best practice for charging and maintaining Li-Ion batteriesis very similar to that of Deep-Cycle batteries. It is best not to drain the battery completely. If the indicator on the phone shows one barremaining, that would be the best time to recharge. Changing through the USB port of a computer is best because it isa slower trickle charge. Most otherchargers are a fast charge. A fastcharge means more heat and heat is an enemy of these batteries. Heat is another reason why it is best torecharge the battery with the phone turned off. When the phone is on it generates a fair amount of heat, whichadds to the heat generated by the charging process. Last but not least to not over-charge or charge for a prolongedperiod of time. The phone notifies youwhen the battery is fully charged even when the phone is off. I have tested, with the phone turned off,and I find the battery does get noticeably warmer if the charger remainsconnected after the battery is shown to be fully charged. Remember, heat is the enemy.If I try do use the phone intensely (i.e. surfing theinternet) when the phone is down to one bar and I have the charger hooked up Iwill soon start receiving notifications from the phone to "CheckBattery". What is happening is I'mdrawing more power from the battery then the charger is able to supply (evenwith the fast charger) and the battery power/charge monitor in the phonenotices the battery is not accepting any charge, which is true. Normally that would mean that battery is badbecause it is not receiving or accepting the power being supplied by thecharger. But in the situation describedI am using more power from the battery then the charger is able toreplace. This is a bad situation. There's a yo-yo effect going on with thebattery at a low state of charge. Again, this situation causes a lot of heat, the enemy.Bottom line, the Pantech Ease battery is not adequate. It is only a 1000mAh at 3.7Wh and shouldhave been at least a 1500mAh at 5Wh. No one makes an extendedbattery for the Pantech Ease so we are stuck with what we have. With both used batteries I have, aftercharging them consistently as described above, I'm getting twice the standbyand talk time from them then when I first received them. However, when I use the GPS I can count ondraining the battery very quickly.My solution has been to purchase a Portable Power Kitmarketed by Energizer that includes a battery that is rated 1000mAh at4Wh. Physically the battery is twice aslarge as the Pantech battery. I boughtit at Walgreen's for $29 dollars. Itcomes in a small zippered case and includes a USB car charger, an AC travelcharger that trickles at only 0.1A (compared with the Pantech AC fast chargerthat puts out 5 times the power), a USB car charger and an 3-way adapter cablethat lets you charge your phone AND the backup battery at the same time. I use the phones' GPS in the car with thephone in a cradle attached to the A/C vent of the car. It is summer now so cold air blows directlyon the phone while the Energizer car charger via the small cable maintains thephone while I'm using the GPS. There'sdefinitely no heat buildup in the battery when I charge this way.The same small cable also allows me to charge the phone fromthe Energizer battery directly. No needto open up the phone and swap out any batteries. Some people carry an extra Pantech Battery but that can be riskybecause the battery contacts are exposed and it's easy to short the batteryagainst something metal (Not Good). You're looking at a dangerous amount ofheat in less than a N.Y. minute.The Energizer battery is as thin as the Pantech battery sois slides easily in the back of the phone case I wear on my belt. I can even use the same cable to charge thephone directly from the Energizer battery while they are both in that phonecase. It doesn't have any exposedcontacts; it has a recessed micro USB connector just like the phone. The Energizer Kit with both chargers,external battery power pack, cables and connectors costs less than any other qualityexternal power pack I have seen and the other power packs are too big to beportable in the same practical way.I'm sure this is way more information than you were lookingfor but as I searched for a solution to this problem I discovered how manyother people are so disappointed with the battery life of the Pantech Ease andalso searching for practical solutions. I sincerely hope this solution is of help to you and to others.

Hp pavilion dv6 2117ax will not power up

Since you already got a new charger, then the problem could be the power jack of the laptop and/or the connections inside the laptop.

Try to plug the power adapter slowly and try to wiggle it. It you feel that the power jack is wiggling, then the problem is a loose power jack that is why it won't charge. And you need to have a tech tighten that up for you.

How do I down load photos to pc

There are 3 things you need to do. (1st) you need to download Pantech PC Suite from - Save PC Suite to "Program Files" on your computer. You need this software before you will be able to connect with your phone. (2nd) after you download this software you need to go to and open the "Program Files" folder on your computer. Then open the "Pantech" folder. Next open the "Pantech PC Suite" folder. Now open the "P2020" folder. Finally open the "USBDriver" folder. This folder should contain some that looks like PTQH_V1_1_4583_1215_SETUP Click on it and install it on your computer. This is a special driver that is required for your computer to be able to communicate with your phone. (3rd) you need to a USB data cord (this is different for a charge cord). I purchased a data/charger cord for mine. It is able to charge or transfer data/charge at the same time. It is as simple as that :C Note: After you install and run Pantech PC Suite the program will give you the option of connecting to your phone with Bluetooth. However, if you don't know it already - anytime you use Bluetooth on the Pantech Ease it will really drain you phone battery and battery life on this phone is not very good to begin with. Hope this is a helpful solution for you.

Dell inspirion 1501 laptop, not charging battery light showing red, have bought a new mains adaptor but still not charging

Does the back dc jack seem loose when you have the ac adapter plugged into it? Wiggle the cord right where it plugs into the laptop. If it moves around then most likely the dc jack on the inside has one of it's 3 points of contact broken. This means that someone would need to re-solder that contact or put a whole new jack into the laptop. Another thing to try is replacing the battery. Sometimes they won't charge because they are bad. Another thing to try is take the battery out, plug it into the adapter, turn it on, get into windows, shut down, put battery back in, turn on. See if that resets the battery and makes it charge.

Ac adapter

In some laptops the power socket (DC jack) is soldered to the motherboard.
If the battery stops charging when you wiggle the power plug inside the jack, either you have a bad power adapter (test it with a voltmeter) or the power jack is broken or loose.
If the power jack is not broken but loose (not making good contact with the motherboard) you can resolder the old jack without replacing it with a new one.
The laptop would have to be taken apart and the DC connector resoldered.
This would cost $75 - $100. Enter your zip code in the box on the right hand side of the FixYa page to find someone close to you.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
