My samsung GT-B3410 doesn't read the sim card


Can you send and SMS from the phone?



If not, then try to take your SIM card out and put i back in. It might have been shaken loose or something. If that doesn't work; check i the SIM card is scratched. In that case get a new SIM card.

It is also possible that the connection plates on the phone might be scratched. In that case: get a new phone.

My camera won't flash no matter how many new batteries I put in it. It will take pictures that don't require a flash. I've reset everything twice and nothing has worked. Contacts are clean. ...


Some Canon cameras use some of the screws around the perimeter of the camera to serve as a safety switch to prevent activation of the flash if the case is opened. See this article for more info.

Colorado: how to remove tail light lens cover? the two screw's (tailgate area), then... Thanks, GD


There are two metal pins in the taillight housing that push into some plastic clips on the outboard side of the truck bed. Gently place a flat blade screwdriver between the bed and the plastic housing and pry rearward to get the clips to release. You may want to put a rag over the end of the screwdriver to help avoid scratching the paint on the bed. To reinstall, line up the pins with the clips and "thump" the housing assembly wih your hand.

How do replace the battery on a EverWeigh Lithium Electronic Scale


The battery is located behind the LCD screen, slightly on the right hand side side if you are facing the LCD screen. You can drill a hole on the platic case from the back of the scale, and you will see the battery house and 3 screws on the battery house lid, unscrew the 3 screws, you can take out and replace the 3V Eveready button type battery easily.

I have tried to open the case by taking out the spring latches located behind the 4 legs of the scale, it was much harder to put every thing back afterward.

Car alarm remote, autopage won't work, unless caseing is off


if you look closely at the PAD you will notice little "pegs" that actually push the button inside the remote. Usually what happens is after years of use the pad either becomes deformed and or the attachment point that holds the pad to the plastic housing will work loose and change position. This will result in the problem you are describing, when you close the remote case the little indicator LED will go off and on or stay on or stay off but if you identify the problem you can either shorten or lengthen that particular peg to conform and behave like its supposed to. Also you can stop by your friendly independent car audio shop, like mine and inquire if they sell just the case of the remote. this is a quick and cheap fix.. $10.00 for most cases. Just transfer the little board from the old to the new and you are ready to enjoy years of trouble free button mashing.... mark

Sony's broken button issue


You need to use you fingernail and pop off the entire button assembly. When you have done this you will be looking inside your camera.

Set the new button assembly into the slots. It will not want to go on by just pushing down. The plasitc assembly is very slick so put a small piece of scotch tape the yellow stuff. I put the tape around the plastic assembly. Make sure you are only putting tape on the chrome plastic assembly. The reason for the tape is to get a good hold of the plastic asembly.

Once you have the tape on the assembly/chrome piece you need to really push down and twist clockwise. You will hear a click and then another click. Make sure you hear two clicks. I had to push and twist pretty hard to make it lock into place.

Zoom toggle switch problem


you need:

1: a small and strong phillips screwdriver.
2. a small piece of medium strength plastic.
(I used a wall anchor like you would use for drywall)
3. superglue
4: about 15 minutes
5. some gumption
6. a bit of sandpaper, in case you screw up step 4.


step 0: You are about to void any warranty. Accept this, and move on. Take out the battery and the memory card.

step 1: remove case of camera. be careful not to strip or loose your your screws.

step 2: gently give the thing a shake. likely a tiny piece of black plastic will fall out. this is the piece that originally attached to the back of the zoom rocker button. if it doesn't come out, don't worry.

step 3: take a look at the back side of the still functioning side of the rocker button. you will see a tiny nub on the back. this nub compresses the pressure switch that is built into the circuit card of the camera, activating the zoom.

step 4: cut a piece of plastic that is about the right thickness to replace the missing nub on the non-functioning side of the button. you will be better off cutting it a bit too thick than too thin.

step 5a: VERY carefully superglue the bit of plastic to the back of the button. you don't need that much glue.

Setp 5b: let me repeat, YOU DON"T NEED THAT MUCH GLUE!

Step 6: Let the glue dry. completely. I mean it.

step 7: replace the case, and about half the screws. put the battery and card back in.

step 8. power on, and test the zoom. It should work now. if it feels like the button is too loose, or still isn't making contact, you cut the plastic too small; Sand or snip it off and start again.

Step 9. If it feels like the button is too hard to push, the plastic bit is too large. You can cut it down a bit, sand it, or just put the rest of the screws in and be thankfull that you repaired your camera for about 2 cents worth of material, and 15 minutes of work.

Step 10: make sure you don't have any extra parts. make sure you didn't screw up another button while you were mucking about.


I've done this. It works. Repaired mine about 9 months ago, and no issues since...well, I put the button in upside down, but it works exactly the same, so that doesn't count as an issue.

If FUBAR your camera, I'm not responsible.

Long live Nikon,
