Question about Verizon Communications G'zOne Type-V Cellular Phone

Phone Powers down whenever it is closed with any small force at all

I have had the G'ZOne for at least 6 months with no problems, until recently whenever I end a call or simply close the phone the power simply cuts off. I dont think I have put my phone to near the abuse it claims it can take and yet there is still some major issue. I have tried brushing along the contact points of the battery, but did not help at all. Any Advice?

    Yup, same problem. At the end of a call, the phone seems to freeze and then powers down and then starts up again.



    The same thing hapens when I hit the send button to see the last call or when I go into "recent calls" or "missed calls"

    I have had the exact same problem with my G'z one. I think the battery has poor contact with the phone. Thus, shutting the phone causes disrupts the power. Recently I noticed a whole bunch of corrosion on the the battery's contacts. It only works when plugged in now.

My G'zOne Type-V is about a year old and I recently started having this problem. It appears to have been corrected by cleaning the five spring-loaded pins in the phone with a vinyl eraser and cleaning the contact surfaces in the battery with an alcohol dampened cotton swab. After doing this the phone continues to work even when forcefully closed. In my case, there was no visible corrosion on either the battery or the pins.

As an extra preventative measure, I applied a bit of silicone grease to the contact surfaces to help keep water out, which is a bit redundant since there is a lip on the phone that forms a seal against the battery. Another option would be to use some type of electrical contact cleaner, though be careful that the solvent doesn't attack the plastic.

Having problem to shut macbook


Click the Apple logo at the top left hand corner of your screen and select "Force Quit". On the small window that pops up, select the trouble app and click Force Quit. If the app does not close, hold down the power button until the screen goes black. This will not harm your computer (since it's a Mac) and you can boot it back up afterwards.

Hello,

Pls try and uninstall the version of ebuddy in your mobile. Visit getjar.com and download the latest version.

Hope this may help as one of the required file for running ebuddy properly would have been currupted.

Take a chance.

I have a sidekick and when i changed it to spanish, now doesnt do anything at all it powers on and the rolling ball doesnt work and doesnt responds to anything, anyone knows something ?!


You may need to perform a Master Reset. This will fully restore your phone to it's factory settings.

To do this, remove your SIM card and follow these directions:

1) Flip the screen as if your about to close it.

2) On the upper right hand side look closely. You will see a little arrow pointing to a small circle.

3) Push in the circle with a paperclip and at the same time hold down the power button.

4) Remember to push both at the same time and keep them pushed in until the phone turns off.

5) Once the phone turns off you have done the hard reset successfully.

6) Then, turn your phone back on normally.

Perhaps you have some plugin installed that freezes and doesn't let Firefox close?
After you close Firefox, go to Task Manager (hit Ctrl+Shift+Escape), choose "Processes" tab and look for Firefox.exe - you can select it and force it to terminate, that way you'll be able to start it again without reboot.
Try disabling or uninstalling plugins until you find the culprit.

No setting instructions.


Atomic clocks are the wave of the future because of their precision. While it takes a scientist to fully understand how these clocks actually work, the general public is primarily interested in their accuracy, rather than their construction. A major benefit to atomic clocks is that they serve as the main standard for calculating time internationally. While each version of atomic clock may have minor differences, for the most part, they are set in the same way.

1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the clock using the correct screwdriver (if one is required). Be careful not to break the cover or lose any screws in the process. Insert the required number and type of batteries into the clock. Most atomic clocks take two AA batteries. Make sure the batteries are positioned with the right polarity in place, and that the clock is functioning, before replacing the battery cover. Place the cover back into its original position and screw any necessary pieces back into place to secure the cover and protect the batteries from springing free.

2. Enter the program mode of the clock by holding down the appropriate button. In most cases, the button will be clearly marked "Set." If not, refer to the clock's instructions to find out which button fulfills that function.

3. Push the button down until the clock flashes its default time zone setting of --5EST. It is now ready to program each function separately as described in the steps below. If for some reason the clock does not respond as outlined, refer to the instructions provided with it for troubleshooting guidance.

4. Press the + button to select the right time zone from the 13 international options provided. The default setting of --5EST (Eastern Time), should appear first, followed by --6 CST (Central Time), -7MST (Mountain Time), -8PST (Pacific Time), -9ALA (Alaskan Time), -10HAW (Hawaiian Time), -11, -12, GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), -1, -2, -3 and --4ATL (Atlantic Time). Then push the "Set" button down again to confirm the time-zone setting you have chosen. Push down the "Set" button again and hold until the selected time zone flashes.

5. Press the "Set" button down two more times to establish the default language setting. Press the + button down to select English, French or Spanish. Then push the "Set" button down again to confirm the language setting.

6. Push down the "Set" button again and hold it until the time zone flashes. Then press the button down three more times until the time 12:00 flashes. Press the + button down to select the hour at the time of the clock's setting. Make sure the hour is set appropriately to AM or PM. Then push the "Set" button down once more to confirm the hour setting.

7. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button four more times until 00 flashes. Press the + button down again to select the minutes at the moment of setting. Push the "Set" button once more to confirm the minute setting.

8. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button five more times until the default year flashes. Press the + button down. Toggle through the settings until the appropriate year is reached. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the year.

9. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button six more times until the default month of January is reached. Toggle through until you reach the right month. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the month.

10. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button seven more times until the default date of 1 is reached. Toggle through until you reach the right date. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the date.

11. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button eight more times until the default setting of Sunday is found. Toggle through until you reach the right weekday. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the weekday.

Hope this helps......best wishes.

I-mate PDA2K shuts down without reason, requiring hard reset.


i had the same problem. but after changing the battery its oky now. its better u change your battery. u will end up the problem. but before changing the battery just c that is the outer cover of i-mate intact or not. because the problem with me was another one also. the external small cover could not be properly closed and it would move whenever i moved the cell phone alot. because there is a sensor along the shutting edges of the back cover. untill its closed completely your imate will give u the same problem. so first see the the cover is not moving all the time and if u do not have problem with that then change your battery. love u buddy. babay. a cute pakistani.

Try switching the phone off for a couple of hours. I had the same problem and tried everything, until I went to the movies and switched off the phone. When I came out and switched it on again it was working fine - incredible but true!
