Turn down the contrast to about 55-65% of maximum. Also turn down sharpness to about 10-20% of maximum.

If ther is a Contrast Plus option, or digital contrast, turn to minimum or off. (Dependant on TV)

This is a common side effect with digital television.

I can't connect my controller to the wii console. Model number Rvl-001(USA). Model of nyko pistol accessory is Bn:090907 4632.My mom threw out the manual out by mistake.HELP!


  • Turn on your Wii console. While on the HOME screen, press any button on the Wii Remote.
  • If the 4 squares on the bottom remain dark, change the batteries (or for a rechargeable Wii Remote, place it on the charger for a while).
  • If the 4 squares blink blue, then stop, your Wii Remote is not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time. This should connect your Wii Remote if it's been synced before.
  • If your 4 squares still blink blue, then stop, these last steps will do the trick. First, on the front of the Wii console, just underneath the disc slot, there is a small panel that opens down. Open it and press the small red button.
  • Open the battery panel of your Wii Remote and press the small red button. Replace the battery panel and observe the blinking blue lights. If 3 stop blinking, and 1 remains lit blue, your Wii Remote is synced with your console.

NEED BOOK OF RULES FOR THE BOARD GAME CALLED SRABBLE


Each letter in a Scrabble game has a certain value within the game. Blank tiles, or tiles lacking an assigned letter, are worth 0 points. For each A, E, I, O, U, L, N, R, S and T used, the player receives one point. Two points are awarded for the letters D and G. Letters worth three points are B, C, M and P. Four-point letters are F, H, V, W and Y. K is the only letter worth five points, while J and X are the only eight-point letters. The letters worth the most within the game are Q and Z, worth 10 points each. With this in mind, spelling out HOUSE on the board in spaces that aren't worth extra earns the player eight points.
Extra-point Scoring
  • Certain squares on the Scrabble board give players extra points for placing a tile on that square. These squares are either pink, red, light blue or dark blue. Pink squares on the board are double word scores, giving a player double the value of a word if one letter from that word lands on the pink square. Placing HOUSE on the board with a double word score being covered would be worth 16 points. Letters falling on red squares receive triple word scores. HOUSE would be worth 24 points should one of the letters fall on a red square. The light and dark blue squares concern individual letter scores, with light blue doubling the amount and dark blue tripling the amount. If the H in HOUSE landed on a light blue square, it would be worth eight points rather than four. On a dark blue square, H would be worth 12 points.
Additional Extras
  • Should a word fall on two double-word squares or two triple-word squares, the scoring goes up even more. The word becomes worth four times the total letter amount if the squares covered are double word squares. If two triple-word squares are covered, the word becomes nine times the total letter amount. In one turn of game play, if two or more words are formed, each word is scored individually then totaled for that turn's value. If a player uses all seven tiles in one turn, a 50-point bonus is awarded.
Game-ending Scores
  • At the end of the game, players total up the number of tiles left in their hand. That number is subtracted from the score they've earned during game play. This becomes the final score. The player with the highest final score wins

Lines in screen


They are stuck pixels...

There are some that say sending strong images that change from to color to color can help unstick them, but I say only dissassembly and cleaning of the contacts (there should be 2 ribbon cables, one for top, one for side) that probably got dust in it. Call it in under warranty if at all possible.

When I use my pen to click on my nintendo DS screen,it touches or selects somewhere else on the screen so I can't play my games properly.

6 Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.

* You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
* If the above steps did not help, there is a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

7 When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

8 Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

Blue and red squares over my image


A histogram is a graphic representation of the distribution of brightness values in an image. The C-5500 has two histograms. One displays a real-time graph on the LCD screen as you compose your images and during the Quick View of images after they are shot. The DIRECT histogram displays potentially over and under-exposed areas in the image with a grid of squares—red for over-exposure and blue for under-exposure. You can set the histogram to OFF to prevent the histogram from appearing.
