I obviously do not have the full story of your problem here; there is not a great deal we can do to help without the make and model number of your cell phone.

I would add that a 'data phone' making its own calls and 'collecting data' is highly suspicious, potentially smacking of smartphone malware.

    I have two suggestions for your data call problem:

    Use the Data Settings menu to turn off incoming data calls. From the Settings Menu select Call Settings -> Data Settings -> Data Off. This may turn off its automatic polling that is eating up your minutes. All other functions including surfing etc should still work fine.

    If your phone if still up to its funny business, I recommend a factory reset to see if that corrects whatever its up to. From the Settings Menu, select Phone Settings -> Security. You'll be prompted for a lock code (default is last 4 digits of your telephone number). Select Reset Phone, and confirm with Yes. Note that this may or may not delete your phonebook, contacts etc, (they may be on the sim card, or not) so do yourself a favor and backup that anything that might be lost that you might want.

    I hope that helps.

Have just purchased a 2006 Mazda 6 Atenza and noticed that there is a light on the dashboard that is continually blinking - it is a car with a key symbol in it. I refered to the manual but it is in...


This symbol is normally the car electronic immobiliser symbol and should not be lit once the car is started.

If it keeps on flashing and the electronic immobiliser is installed properly, it will prevent your car from being started.

Flashing symbols means immobiliser code is invalid or uncoded.
Hope the information is useful.

My printer won't print. (HP P2015dn)


If the triangle is on and the powe light is on too, is a Manual Feed or Continuable Error

This state can be reached in the following circumstances:
Manual feed,

General continuable error
  • Memory configuration error
  • Personality/Job related errorSOLUTION: To recover from the error and print whatever data is possible, press theGo button.If the recovery is successful, the printer goes to the Processing Data state and completes the job.If the recovery is unsuccessful, the printer returns to the Continuable Error state
    another reason is that the cartridge cap may be open or not closed, remove the cartridge and put it again, should work

    If you've put a dimm memory (memory expandable to one side of the printer, remove it and try one more time

    if you did not work, it may be a fan failure the printer, or the engine, or the DC controller, if that is your problem is preferable to contact an authorized hp.

    I have the same machine, it is good quality, and does not give many problems. regards

If the server is configured with split SCSI channels these indicate which bays are part of each of the two channels. The common use for this would be to use the split with two drives for a RAID 1 system drive and the remaining four for RAID 5 data or in some cases two sets of RAID 1.
