Kindle Paperwhite 2nd Edition Operating System Pushed May 2015


Within the past week (2nd week in May 2015) Amazon *pushed* a new operating system onto my Kindle Paperwhite. I connected to Wi-Fi in order to synchronize, download, etc. and I left it connected for a while and I went and did something else. When I returned, it had gone into the sleep mode because it was not being actively used. When I brought it out of sleep mode I saw there was a notice on the home screen about it having been updated and to go to the Cloud and download the 2nd Edition of the Operators Manual.

But, here's the rub - the 3G Whispernet wouldn't connect or, more precisely, it said it was connected but it wouldn't do or display anything but a blank white area. I got to thinking maybe it had something to do with the new operating system not having been rebooted. Always, it seems, new operating systems must be rebooted. So I used the Menu button > Settings > Menu button again > Restart. (Not *Reset Device* which is directly below so be sure not to touch it by mistake) and my Kindle shut down. I gave it about ten seconds and it didn't restart so I pushed the power button and it restarted and went through the boot screen and progress bar.

When it started up again it went to my PIN screen where I entered the PIN and it went to a Home Screen I'd never seen before. It consisted of a bunch of book covers with some adverts for recommended books at the bottom.Well, I found out by reading the new 2nd Edition Operator's manual that I downloaded from the Cloud that the *Cover View* is the default with this new O/S and, if one wants the old familiar *List View* back, to just touch the Menu icon (three horizontal bars in the upper right) and select *List View* which returned my Kindle to the Home Page I was used to.

There are several other changes as well so do download and read the 2nd Edition Operator's Manual. Oh, BTW, the 3G and Wi-Fi works again. I've got a sneaky suspicion that the new O/S needed the Restart in order to properly register the device so it could connect.

My 1993 Toyota 4runner will not pass smog.The check engine light has been on for some time now. I went to a shop to have it cleared and the mechanic only reset the computer not clear it.I was ordered to a...


Most likely the problem is a bad O2 Sensor. In any case a head gasket will run about $20 and 6 hours of work to replace but I doubt very seriously that is the problem. The check engine light keeps returning because the problem is still present that caused it to activate in the first place. it doesn't matter how many times you reset it. I would start by replacing the O2 Sensor, assuming the vehicle has one. If it doesn't have an O2 Sensor then you need to look at the Map Sensor or Catalytic Convert as being possible problems. If the engine runs better after you clear the code though until the code returns then I wold bet the problem is the Oxygen Sensor more commonly known as the O2 Sensor. They run about $40 at Auto Zone.

If the laptop hard drive has not been altered try this. An image of the system is created at the factory and stored on a hidden partition. To start the application, press when the blue bar with "www.dell.com" is displayed during the boot process. PC Restore only takes a few minutes to restore the operating system.

Using PC Restore removes any software or data files the customer has loaded on the system.

We have a Sony Bravia 40'' LCD that the screen went white and then black and won't come back on. The power button comes on but no picture. Just bought the TV in Nov 2009


the most likely the t-connector board became unplugged or failed completely (sits right behind the screen modual at the top&center) or.. the logic board has went kaput on ya...ontop of that, you are dealing with the notorious sony. try and get a replacement if under warranty. do not settle for thier refurbishing.

repairing these things i can tell you , it could be anything from a bad connection or ring cracks to completely failed parts. but only if i was in it would i know for sure. but the symptoms suggest t-connector or the logic board.

When switched on, display reads "In synchronized monitor mode"


Cycled through display options, still couldn't get viewfinder image. Checked images already on card, and they showed OK, so screen operating properly. Went back to viewfinder mode, got lots of horizontal lines across screen. Realised I could do no more, so took camera to shop it was bought from, who checked it and said it had an electronic problem that needed professional repair facility, so camera has gone for an estimate of repair cost.

Strange problems with Z-2300's


I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Short Circut, blows fuses instantly.


OK usually the fuse goes because the Amp's IC's are drawing too much current thus the fuse blows... either this OR the Power Supply has gone Kaput. It is possible to replace the output IC's.. as it is to fix the PSU.. But it really is a shop job..
