Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?

If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

My phone droze earlier today and now it wont receive text messages or calls. I need help.

Turn off. If it will not turn off, remove the back and remove the battery. Wait five minutes. Replace battery. Turn on, and wait the five minutes that it takes for Palm to turn back on, and this should fix the problem. If it still is "frozen" call Verizon or Sprint (your wireless provider) and replace the phone. There is usually a $50 deductable to replace any phone, even with insurance, so be ready to pay that for another phone, unless you have had it for less than 30 days.

Screen is frozen on my jensen vm9412 help plzzz

No idea, try restarting it. Remove the radio fuse in the fuse block, wait five minutes then reinstall. If that don't work remove the negative from the battery, wait five minutes then reattach. This will restart the unit for sure, it will also restart the car's computer just so you're aware. Let me know how it goes.

Try taking the radio fuse off, where all the other fuses are located, wait five minutes and re-install. What you want to try to do is restart it. If this don't work, remove the negative or ground cable from the car battery, wait five minutes then reinstall.
