Siemens rwb29 controller doesn't work properly. central heating comes up only when you select hot water, but not on its own

This happens to my rwb29 from time to time. You can try switching off the power to the controller for a couple of minutes with CH thermostat and CH programs set off. Or you can press the little reset button to the bottom right of the LCD screen. After 1 or 2 attempts these steps usually restore the independent control on my unit.

Photos coming out blue on LG ultimus phone

This is probably caused by the phone camera's white balance setting. On mine, in camera mode, there's a button beneath one the that looks like crosshairs. It usually says AW, but may look like a light bulb, sun, fluorescent bulb, or a cloud. When you press this button it opens a menu letting you choose between 'auto,' 'incandescent,' 'daylight,' 'fluorescent,' and 'cloudy-daylight'. Most people are fine leaving this on 'auto,' but with some phones, it doesn't balance very well, so you should change it to whatever option gives you the best-looking result.

If you can't find the right menu, look around the camera app for anything called "white balance."

My phone wont turn on

Try a battery pull.
If that doesn't work, try a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset
1. Power off phone
2. Use hardware keyboard
3. Press and hold the 'X' key and Power button until you see a screen with an exclamation point inside a triangle
4. Press and hold the Volume Up key then press the Camera button (I had to do this twice) to get menu screen (Linux back-end becomes VERY apparent here)
5. Using the D-pad, select one of the Wipe options (specifically Wipe Data/Factory Reset)
6. Confirm your selection and wait for it to complete
7. Reboot the device

if the problem still persists, your phone might have water damage and may need replacing.

Windos not working no interior lights at all no centerl locking working, no back spkears working

windows, interior lights work via central locking control unit. [situated under side panel in luggage compartment] check fuses for c/locking and check for water ingress at control unit.

I have a 1997 bmw 318i. the central locking system keeps blowing the fuse. i know there is a short somewhere,but where

I will suggest to check the wire harness from truck. try to take off the rubber grommet close to trunk hinges. then inspect if there is dammage wire but if you can;t find any fault with it, i suggest to disconnect one by one the connector from each door and and obseve the fuse and if the fault still existing check the central locking module for possible water ingress resulting to blown your fuse

The Audi A6 2002 model I have started with the central locking not working, via key fob and then completely (aka unlocking manually or pressing the internal buttons). Now the alarm goes off when anything...

I have the same problem - it is the central locking controller found under the passenger seat footwell carpet. If water has got into the footwell it will form a pool in the control unit. The connectors will rot after time and perhaps the unit PCB inside the non-waterproof casing may also be damaged. It is not easy to get at this - remove the glovebox and wrench away at the moulded carpet and see if there are signs of damage (especially you are aware of water ingress).

After a small amount of water ingress, my exposure button won't work. It focuses as if attempting to take a shot but doesn't. Any ideas?

Hi Yogi,

Put the camera in a paper bag filled with dry uncooked rice. Leave it there for a few days. The rice will leech out the moisture.

After 2-3 days, try it. If there is no change, change the rice and repeat.

I didn't believe it either at first. Then I saw it with my own eyes work on a cell phone that was dropped in a toilet. Kinda weird, but the theory is sound. Works by osmosis and evaporation.

Best regards

DSC-F717 - "stucked" in nightshot mode

Yes you are right, it is more than likely the nightshot button that has shorted.

This is button is part of what we call the Switch control Block.

Phone your local Sony service Centre and ask them how much it would cost to replace the switch control block. My estimate is about a 1/5 of the original cast you paid for the camera.

Good luck.
