Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My daughter dropped her iphone earlier this year and it stopped working. I thought I'd try to get it fixed before Christmas and surprise her. So I am charging it now. The original problem was the bottom of the touch screen wasn't working. Now it seems to be working, and I'm trying to get it to recognize my SIM card (AT&T) so I can make sure it completely works, but I can't get it to recognize my SIM card. Any suggestions before I take it to the apple store?

    So I talked to someone that has an iphone and he said because I am using my SIM from a BB, it won't recognize unless I set up a new account. So I played with it a little more, and it seems like the bottom works when using the slider bar (slide for emergency) works, but when I try to push a button at the bottom (cancel on "slide to power off") or I tried dialing 411 on the emergency view, it will let me key in 411 and delete them, but won't let me touch the back arrow or the green phone icon. Any other help?

Hello. My daughter's Leapster 2 sound has stopped working. She has only had it brand new since Christmas. Can it be fixed?


Have you tried putting new batteries? If yes and still has no sound then look for the warranty and bring it back to the store where you bought it so they can repair it for free.

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADING washing machines. If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

  1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
  2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
  3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
  4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
  5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
  6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
  7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
  8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
  9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
  10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
  11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
  12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

I dropped it and i cant see anything on the screen but it still vibrates and make noise


Ah, this is a common problem after dropping an iphone.
If you had your iphone for less then a year then you could try taking it back to the apple store and say the screen has stopped working and they should give you a new one under warranty. I wouldnt mention you dropped it tho ;).
If you have had your phone for longer then a year or apple wont give you a new one then you should seek help from a repair company such as the one below. Shouldnt be too expensive to fix

My daughter dropped her phone


I would take it to an appple store and have them take a look, they won't charge you just to check it out. If under warranty they are pretty good about replacing it right there.

AAAARRGGG ): I dropped my Ipod down the loo earlier this year, and it worked perfectly for around 5 months then last weekend the home button and power button stopped workin I took it to an apple store but...


Those parts can be replaced. However you need a repair place to do this as it is very hard for a 1st timer to repair. So try taking it to a place other than Apple store

New Didj keeps shutting down


We were having the same problem; my son (an we) were getting very frustrated! I finally tried to reboot the game and it seems to have worked. Take a paperclip and bend it; place the point in the small circular opening in the back of the game (there is two arrows next to the opening). We just did this and my son played past the point where it would shut down. The manual said that doing this would erase all of the memory...this didn't seem to happen.

Hope this helps!
