SOURCE: RCA pearl 1602-A won't register when plugged into USB port.

When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem.

SOURCE: My Sharp Flat Screen Tv Model LC32SB24U has a USB

The USB entry is mostly used for a foto slide show.
Please read the owners manual before plugging in any kind of USB sticks or other cable's in a TV set.
It can damage the set when there is a ground connection between some devices.

Can I connect my fire hd 10 to my tv using a cable.

It seems as if it is possible to connect your Fire HD 10 to a TV via a HDMI cable. In order to do this you will either need:
  • Amazon HDMI adapter for fire tablets
  • Micro HDMI/ USB to HDMI cable
Here is a helpful article with ways to connect to a TV and links to the types of adapters on amazon.

How do i get the movies from my tablet to play on my tv?

Bluetooth if your television has it, or via your home network. You have to have the same app on the television as your phone. YouTube works really well.

How do i watch movie from my tablet on my tv

Depends on the tablet. You can use google chrome cast for lots of media streaming to TV on all tablets but it only works using certain programs. You might have a micro HDMI output on your tablet if it's not an Ipad which you can connect to your television with a micro HDMI to HDMI cable. But, if it's an apple product you can either buy a $40 adapter cable or a $99 Apple TV hat can connect to your ipad wirelessly, but there's no direct way to connect your iPad to a TV right out of the box.

How do get my Acer lconia a3 10 inch iPad connect to the TV I've connected with HDMI leads but don't get anything

First off, determine if you have an Acer Iconia A3 tablet or an iPad.

If you have an Acer Iconia A3 tablet, then connect the HDMI port to a good quality HDMI version 1.3 or better cable. Make sure the ends match the sizes you need for your tablet and television.

If you have an iPad, call up the genius' in your local store to get them to walk you through how to hook it to your television.

Next, start playing something on whichever of your tablets, music, video, or some other type of media. Make sure to test before hooking it up that it is something that actually plays on the tablet you have, and has video and/or audio. If nothing plays on your television, then check the cable connections are properly seated.

I have a lead from my tv usb, to the samsung tablet, but i dont know how to get it to connect

Step 1 Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the Samsung Galaxy Tab HDTV adapter.
Step 2 Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to a free HDMI port on your television.
Step 3 Connect your Galaxy Tab's travel charger to the other end of the HDTV adapter. Plug the travel charger into a power source, such as an electrical outlet or a computer's USB port.
Step 4 Plug the HDTV adapter connector into the Galaxy Tab's "Power/Accessory Interface" port. The port is on the bottom of the device.
Step 5 Turn on the TV. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, use the remote control to switch to the correct one. Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the remote to switch ports. When you're using the correct port, the TV will instantly display whatever is on the Tab's screen.

Ho a do I connect my tv to my tablet without a USB cable

You did not say what you are trying to do, so I will assume you want to display video on your TV.
Most recent tablets have a mini-HDMI output and TVs have a normal sized HDMI input. An HDMI cable with a mini-HDMI adapter on one end is the easiest way to connect them. Another method is to buy a Google Chromecast (about $35) which you plus into an HDMI input on your TV, which allows you to send from a Chrome browser or other Chromecast apps on your tablet wirelessly to your TV.

How do i play movies from a tablet i plugged a hdmi cord but no response

You mentioned a "usb cable" but you cannot connect an external display to a tablet's USB ports. If you are using an HDMI cable, then you will need to select which display is active through the tablet's settings (Android) or control panel (Windows) and also make sure that the TV is set to the appropriate HDMI connection through the input selection.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

The Dell Venue 7 tablet does not support video output through the micro USB port. The only way to get the video from your tablet onto a large screen television or monitor is by using Miracast.
