SOURCE: Digital Cam

I was encountering the same problem and solved it simply. Using a clean pencil eraser, I gently cleaned the contacts on the battery and the camera where they connect. The camera communicates with the battery, and if it cannot talk to it, it shuts down.

Be sure that you keep them clean, and if you wish to keep this from happening, put a small (very small) amount of petroleum jelly on the contacts, to keep the air from corroding them.

Not sure what you mean by won't turn on.

If you mean no dial tone when you take it out of the cradle, I have run into this. The solution is to unplug the power cord and then plug it back in which resets the unit.

SOURCE: upro go won't turn on I press on the start

Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like the LCD screen has gone bad. Try to drain the power of the board first. Take out the battery then press and hold the ON button for 10 secs. This will drain the electrostatic charge of the board the usually causes the no display problem. Put the battery back after 10 secs then power ON the unit. If same thing happens then you need to have the LCD replaced by the manufacturer if the unit is still under warranty.

Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: My laptop wont turn on and yet its fully charge.


This sounds like there is a problem with the battery.
Remove the AC mains power and take out the battery from the laptop. Plug AC power back in and try booting the laptop up.
If it boots up let it boot into Windows/linux and then shut the computer down as normal. Remove AC power and re-insert the battery. Plug AC back in and power it up, see if it does the same thing. If it does the same thing the battery is faulty. If it boots up with the battery in then there was a glitch.

I have lost my manual and I don't know how to retrieve my messages from another phone when I'm away from home.

Which model of Uniden phone do you have? Do you remember the PIN that you have programmed into the phone? (If the PIN is not set, you can't access the answering system remotely. The Uniden phones that I know don't have a default PIN.)

For the DCT648, to access the messages remotely, dial your phone number and wait for the system to answer. Press 0 followed by your 2 digit PIN (within 2 seconds of pressing zero) while the greeting is playing. To play back all of the messages, press 0 2. If the unit is off, then you need to press 0 followed by your PIN (within 2 seconds) after 10 rings and the beep. Press 0 6 to turn on the unit.

Other Uniden phones use a 4 digit PIN. On the DECT1080, when the greeting plays, press * followed by the PIN. Then press 01 to play back the messages.

Uniden phone manuals are available at the product page (start at and search for your phone) or from the Support page ( ) . On the support page, you will need to use the drop down menu to change the type of phone (if you have a DECT phone) and then search through the pages. The manuals are listed in numerical and alphabetical order. One manual will cover several phones if the phone supports multiple handsets. So ignore the number after the dash if you can't find your exact manual.

If you add a comment with your phone's model number, I'll be glad to check the specifics for accessing the answering system for you.

I hope this helps.

My laptop keeps saying no bootable divice found


I don´t know is your laptop older or is newest, but or you have trouble with you hard drive (see in bios,does you hard drive there), or you have trouble with system.
You can try repair installation (don´t lose your data), or you can install a new system.
Good luck, i hope so that I was helpful.
