Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3m Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dust under the screen,

The screen on my V3m looks like there's dust or dirt under it especially in sunlight etc. Is it possible to have it cleaned out, or replace the screen ? I have had this phone for quite few years and it saw a pretty hard life in construction before I retired and I'm loath to part with it so would you advise buying new rather than replacing the screen,Thankyou, Derek.

Have a JVC HD-Z886 61inch, there appears to be some black spots behind the screen. Looks like dust, most at top of screen, not a big problem. Is there any way to clean behind the screen? When new the TV...

  • The most severe problem dust can cause in an LCD TV is a short circuit. This occurs when dust enters the television's casing and settles on one or more of the internal circuit boards. Enough dust can cause a short circuit, which will prevent the TV from working at all. In other cases, it will damage picture quality or prevent certain features from working properly.

    Because a short circuit can only occur when enough dust is present inside the TV, this problem happens after the TV has been in use for a number of years, meaning that it will not be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. In many cases of short circuits, repair is expensive, and you are better off buying a new set.
  • Image Quality
  • Dust can also have an effect on an LCD TV's picture quality without entering the LCD's casing. Dust that settles on the surface can distort the picture and decrease its brightness. While it's easy to wipe the dust away, use only a soft cloth and mild cleaning solution to avoid scratching the screen or causing permanent damage with caustic cleansers.

    Dust under the screen can be more difficult to clean. Using compressed air to blow the dust out is the best option, short of disassembling the set to clean the screen from the inside. Keeping the surface of the screen free of dust is usually sufficient to prevent dust from getting under the screen.
  • Control Problems
  • Another effect dust can have on a an LCD TV occurs when it enters the space around buttons, making it difficult to control the television. On certain sets, dust will cause buttons to stick or prevent them from engaging when pressed. Using compressed air to blow the dust out, or resorting to using only the remote control, will solve this problem.

    Cleaning your Motherboard effectively

    Motherboard cleaningWhy? Dust and especially particles of cigarette smoke can build up and corrode circuitry causing various problems such as computer lockups
    Note: When inside the computer take the necessary ESD precautions and try to avoid unplugging any cables or other connections.
    Procedure: Our recommendation when cleaning the motherboard from dust, dirt, or hair is to use compressed air. When using compressed air, hold it in the up-right position; otherwise, it is possible chemicals may come out of the container that could damage or corrode the Motherboard or other component within the computer. Also, ensure when using compressed air that you always blow the dust or dirt away from the motherboard, or out of the case.
    Another good alternative to compressed air is to use a portable battery powered vacuum that can effectively remove the dust, dirt, and hair from the motherboard completely and prevent it from getting trapped within the case. However, do not use a standard electricity powered vacuum as it can cause a lot of static electricity that can damage the computer. When using the vacuum it is vital that you stay a couple inches away from the motherboard and all other components to help prevent contact as well as to help prevent anything from being sucked into the vacuum. Ensure that you do not remove any small components with the vacuum such as jumpers.
    Tip: When cleaning the inside of the case also look at any fans and/or heat sinks. Dust, dirt, and hair collects around these components the most.

    In order to maintain clean copier, you should always do the following;

    a. Avoid keeping it on direct sunlight
    b. Avoid dust as much as possible
    c. Don't keep it near a leaking roof.
    d. When wiping the floor, cover the copier with dust proof dustcover since invisible dust flows at this time.
    e. Do not keep foods and some edible materials in the same room with the copier as this will attract pests which harms the machine. For example, cockroaches enter the machine and makes stubborn stains which discolors the copier.
    f. When handling your machine, make sure your hands are clean and not oily as you should know that, skin perfumes and hair conditioners are oily and will make dirts stick on your copier.Also wipe dry your hands with a clean towel since watery hands will spread some stains around wherever you touch.
    g. After work, wipe it with a clean cloth dampened with water and soap. Wipe dry with a clean cloth . This should only apply to side covers and scanner glass.
    h. When completely dry, you can use a window cleaner to shine it clean and cover it with waterproof and dust proof cover and leave it like that till the next days work.

    If you follow this tip on daily basis, service and maintenance will be greatly reduced. Try it and you won't regret.

    Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on

    Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
    Don't forget to rate, thanks.

    Dust in my Kodak m863 lcd screen

    Hold the camera upside down and gently blow off any grit and lose dust particles. Next lightly wipe the lens with a few drops of lens cleaning fluid, place the fluid on the lens cleaning paper, not directly onto the lens and then wipe the lens.

    looks like your touch screen is faulty . it could just be dust / dirt under the edges of the screen. If dust is trapped under the edge , it can effectivly be pressing the screen a little causing letetr to change or dissapear. See if you can get to clean under and around the edges , if the cleanup doesn't work then most likely cause is a faulty touch screen which will need replacing. Good luck.

    Apple Cinema Display 23" HD - Dust on inside of screen.

    Well, I pretty much knew that the display would have to be disassembled to clean the dust out. I should have been more specific by asking if the display "could" be taken apart to clean it out, especially since the dust is in between the image and light source layers.
