Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Usb hi, I think my internet company is mistakenly charging me for their equipment. They are telling me that because my dog chewed on a cable that connects to my computer to their box that it fryed the satellite that is up in my tree. i think the cord is just a simple USB cable and im not thinking that it would be possible to do that. I'm trying to get all of the right information i can so i dont get charged for something that i shouldnt, and im not sure where to go to get answers.

Firstly, You have a satellite in your tree??? They normally store them in orbit around the planet =)

Anyway, what they are saying is highly possible. It may well be a USB cable that connects your computer to the satellite modem, but if that cable was chewed, then it could easily have shorted out the modem and is probably what they are claiming.

They will then have a cable that will go from the modem (box) to a satellite dish (which is what I think you have in your tree). The dish will be fine, the cable to the dish will be fine, the only 2 things that should have been affected are the cable and the satellite modem.

    I will add just so you understand how it can be shorted out by just the USB cable that all USB cables carry +5 volts inside as well as the data.

Dog chewed off usb connector need pin to repace


You will have to buy a USB connector cable and cut off one side. I hope you know how to solder. The USB cable is very cheap, and if you know how to solder well, your problem is solved.

I need to charge my blackberry phone with my usb cord.


You will need to install the latest driver and software for blackberry on your pc, otherwise it will tell you that there is insuficient power to charge it. If you install the software that came with the cd that should do the trick.

My wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into the lcd .


If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each).
If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.

What USB cable can I use with this camera?


Try Newegg.com and look for USB cables.

Here is a link to one that I think is correct. Look at the pictures first.
