You can connect your Canon analog camera to your PC with the "cinch or S-Video" cables that came with it when it was new. Your Digital PC will have to have a compatible video card for the above mentioned connections. You can upgrade your Graphics Card if your PC's isn't compatible.

No sound coming from wireless mic

check the battery, if dead replace new. check the switch might be a cold solder or loose wire and finally check the condenser mic by placing a multitester to the two connectors of the mic with one wire from the mic desoldered. if there's a continuity, then its good. if there's no continuity the mic condenser is busted. go to radioshack and find replacement mic condenser.

Microphone not working on Dell Laptop

If you can hear windows booting up then the sound card is can double check it in Device Manager. To ensure the device drivers are up to date. Just find the sound card in the list of devices in Device manager and click on the "+" to expand it. Then right click on the sound device and click on update drivers. You can also uninstall the drivers and reboot. Plug and Play will pick up the correct drivers..double-check the cables also...good luck. Let me now if you have any questions

It is activated by a temperature switch. It's probably bad. Just runs the fan at any time for no reason or there is a short in that part of the system. I hate that the computor was changed first. Find that sensor and swap it out and see if your problem doesn't go bye bye.

Good luck

No speaking ability

The mute button on these is the little black button on top of the earpiece. It will only be on if you turn it on during a call. If you turn the headset off, the mute button goes off as well.
Check the compaibility 'wheel' on the side of the base station. The most common setting is 1 but some phones use 2,3 & 4. Just try it on each setting until it works. Other than that, check the microphone volume adjust setting underneath the base (ABCD switch) and see if changing that makes a difference. Of course there is always a small chance that the microphone is dead.
