There's only one single chip on a remote, its processor - if it goes out (usually under 2 years) then the remote is dead.

How do i refill my hp cartriges in my hp 8610 printer step by step.


All refill sets, come with a good description. But before you buy ink, make sure your cartridges can be filled and the chip can be reset. So you won't end with filled and unusable cartridges and dirty hands.
Look here to see how things go:

How do I re-program my Remote Control with automatic starter on my 2009 Town and Country Van


My experience with frequently-used vehicle remotes (any make) is this:
1. When relatively new or in good condition, if remote stops working, the button battery inside is dead or too low.

2. If battery is new, & remote still doesn't work, a solder joint on the circuit board inside may have come loose or broken.(You can try re-soldering using a low-heat pencil iron & thin RESIN-core solder -- even if you're not great at it, what do you have to lose?)

3. It's rather unusual for even an older, well-used remote to simply lose its programming.If this is the problem, it may be cheaper to buy a new after-market remote (or pair of remotes) that you can program yourself (only works with some brands & years of vehicles, so READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THEIR WEBSITE BEFORE BUYING AN AFTER-MARKET REMOTE), instead of going to the dealer for a normally HIGH-priced programming job.

4. Used OEM remotes that match yours exactly (check the part # of your remote & the used one you're considering) can often be purchased from a local auto wrecker (now called "auto recycler") for cheap ($5 to $10 is common), but will need programming.I always go thru the many they have, looking for one that appears new or like-new.

5. IF YOU MUST GET PROGRAMMING FROM A DEALER, usually it's the SAME PRICE whether you have 1 remote or several remotes/keys programmed at the same time.Since dealer programming is pricey, I always have 3-4 remotes and/or chip-keys programmed at the same time.(My dear wife loses chip-keys & remotes from time-to-time, so I keep a few spares on-hand.I've found inexpensive after-market chip-key blanks at some key cutters and/or auto parts stores, altho they still require programming after the copy is cut from yours.)

CAUTION
:Some OEM anti-theft systems require that ALL remotes & chip-keys be programmed/re-programmed at the same time, whether they're original, used or new.Determine this IN ADVANCE, so you know what you're faced with.The good news is that for those vehicle manufacturers, dealers normally don't charge more to program/re-program multiple remotes and/or chip-keys, if all are being done AT THE SAME TIME.

6. If all else fails & you MUST buy a new OEM remote (which will require programming), try 2 things -- First, see if the dealer will make you a package deal on buying the remote (or 2 remotes, or a remote & a chip-key) AND doing the programming for a lower combined price.Second, it may be cheaper to buy a new OEM remote from a dealer who's had one in stock for a long time & wants to blow it out (or buy from online OEM seller) & then pay the normal programming price.See the CAUTION above.

There are lots of options here, so hopefully something is useful to you.

Where is firmware


Firmware is on a chip on a circut board inside the TV. If your TV has upgradable firmware then there will be a USB port for using a flashdrive to download the new firmware. Check the the maufacturer's website for instructions and download. Caution: Make sure you are using the correct model number. Downloading the wrong firmware can make your TV unusable.

The red is wavy and doesn't line up


Sounds like you are trying to adjust convergence through the menu setting on your TV. Make sure you are using that TV's original remote to make these adjustments. If you are unable to make these adjustments then typically it is because one or both of your TV's convergence chips are burnt and need to be replaced. You can find these chips fairly easily but make sure you are purchasing OEM chips made by Sanyo. Sanyo made the majority of the convergence chips for most major brand rear projection TV's. You can find good quality chips at convergencechips.com. Hope this helps,James

We just? replaced the cyan toner with a OEM cyan and two days later it says it needs to be replaced again


A lot of printer cartridges have microchips which make them unusable once the machine believes it to be finished, mainly to discourage refilling. maybe the chip has malfunctioned or the cartridges were used already and refilled or something. there are chip resetters , perhaps you should speak to the supplier, they may refund or replace or reset the chip for you.
