Double tap your home button and swipe up to close the apps if ur running iOS 7 or higher. If your on iOS 6 or lower, you can still double press the home but instead you will see icons at the bottom of your screen with small X's. Tap those to close your background apps.

It's possible that you have to many apps running at one time and it's taking all the available memory. Closing the apps completely will release the memory.

If the problem still persists. You can always back up your phone through iTunes and/or iCloud. After that, you can perform a restore on the phone.

If the phone is still slow after a restore, the only option left is to upgrade. Unfortunately when Apple releases a new iOS for newer models of the phone, the lower model phones slow down reason being is that the newest iOS is optimized for the newest model of iPhone.

Hope this helps

How do i keep sloping in youtube

Do you mean the video takes ages to load and then plays a bit then stops - then plays a bit more than stops?

If you do the problem could be your flash player. You might need to update your Adobe flash player. It's free, just search for Adobe flash player online.
Once that is done if it still does it then you might not have sufficent memory on your computer or a memory problem. Another reason could be slow broadband. Faults on your phone line can cause problems that you might only notice when downloading video, which takes a lot of memory. Your broadband provider might have capped your download speed. Check out one of those broadband speed testers on the internet to see what you are getting.
The faster your proccessor on your computer the more quickly the videos will load. If your computer is doing several actions at once that will slow the speed down. So you can stop them by closing programs that are running.

The dryer will not shut off automatically. It would run forever if I let it. It also takes a very long time to dry the clothes. As if it's not heating them properly.

Hi there,

Well first of all you may try running the dryer with the vent hose removed. A slow vent will cause what you're describing. Then you'll need to look at the cycling thermostat. That is the part that tells the timer to advance. It sends a signal to the timer when the proper temp is achieved in the drum. Means when the element cycles off the timer motor moves a little bit. When it cools down and the element comes back on the timer stops. This action takes place when you're using one of the auto cycles.
If you have a slow vent it can cause the high limit thermostat to do the cycling. Please let us know for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Make sure it is plugged directly into a USD port on your PC. DO NOT plug these into USB hubs as this can cause problems with the pc recognizing the device or not being able to see it all together. Also make sure that you are using the USB cord that came with the unit.

I want to take action shots

Try turning the flash off. You can also prefocus and meter the exposure by pressing the shutter release button halfway. Hold it there until the right moment, then press it down the rest of the way.
