Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have an IO Talk hands free kit. After 8 months trouble-free operation, the remote console battery needed replacing. I simply replaced the battery and since then, the remote does not pair-up with the central embedded device. My mobile does, but I need to use my iPhone to answer the phone and press "iO Handsfree device" before I can talk, which completely makes a joke of the whole hands-free kit. I rang up O2, whose contractor fitted the device into my car, and basically they want nothing to do with it. It is as if I didnt buy this device in their shop. Does anyone know how to fix this problem and has anyone else had this problem with the iO Talk and with O2?

This is a problem with the actual transmitter in the IO talk unit. It should still be under warranty, have you checked with the place that installed it for you? They should be able to replace the whole setup at no charge to you if it is less than a year old...

Lights won't work on Harbor Breeze ceiling fan

Ceiling fans operated with remote controls, pull chains, and/or wall switches tend to get confused and just fail. You can try disconnecting power at the source and, while pausing briefly, remove batteries from the remote and push all buttons to eliminate the "stuck button" cause. Then, reconnect power and try various combinations of controls until something works or you give up in frustration.

As soon as i turn on ps3 it turns off then a red light blinks at me please help

You can't stop the heat from getting to
the main chips IT"S COMING FROM
THE MAIN CHIPS. The G.P.U. tends
to warp the board slightly and that will
cause the solder will break free . The
best type of repair is to simply have
a local shop reflow the Both G.P.U
and C.P.U. and replace the hold down
bracket with a heavier gage

average cost is 100.00 or so
and should provide 9-12 month
of trouble operation.

Save your money on the repair
guides ,most of witch is available
on line for free . If you feel up to
the challenge of trying to repair
it yourself.

How to fix the error code e 68 in xbox 360

First remove the Hard Drive and power up .
If you still have E68 1 red then the problem 99/100
is the G.P.U. disconnecting . There are DIY kits and tons of
guides . The kit is nothing more then 4 8-32 screw and washers
that you could buy from a local hardware store for 5.00
and the repair proses simply requires you replace the
X clamp with screws and washers and replace the heat sink
compound . and then force the G.P.U. only to over heat.

This may get your console working , But the P.C. board is
now being used to compress the G.P.U. to the heat-sink after
some time the P.C. board will start to develop a concave warpage
right under the G.P.U. some console will run 1-3 months on average before getting R.R.o.D and will prove difficult to
repair with a standered reflow repair.

There is a better solution to compress the G.P.U. only with out
distorting the board . Just Google " Conformal Compression Assmbley" this is a hardware up grade for a seriously
lacking clamping system "Microsoft's X clamp" . And you can install it yourself.

How do i check battery

Special equipment is necessary to check the battery of a laptop computer. The equipment will test the charging ability as well as the performance of the battery under the standard "load" of operating the computer. If yours is no longer holding a charge, or the charge lasts only a short period, it's very likely that the battery is simply worn out. Typically expect that if a battery is more than 2 years old, you'll be running out of life for it. Some batteries last longer, some much shorter. For example, Toshiba's Tecra series batteries seem to wear out and drain their charge quickly after about 6-12 months, needing a new battery.

If the battery is less than a year old, the manufacturers warranty may stipulate free replacement.

The Acer Aspire 5100 has been out since 2006. If yours is an older model, it may simply be time to replace the battery. You may find a local computer repair shop that will test your battery for free since it's very simple for them to do.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Xbox 360 wont charge play and charge kit

First thing to do is check your USB ports on the console. Plug in a flash drive or anything into all 3 USB ports to test them. If they all work you have eliminated the console as the source of the problem.
Alternatively, if you believe it may be the play and charge kit itself, simply plug it into any usb on any pc with a controller attached. If the red charging light turns on, it is working properly.
If both check out it simply means it's time to replace the battery pack in the controller. They have a life cycle depending on usage, and they vary greatly.

Dead battery every night in less then 5 hrs truck is dead i know something is still on but what ?

its called a parasitic drain. What we would do is hook up an amp meter to see the drain happening then we would start unplugging fuses one at a time till we found wht circuit is causing it. Its possible its computer problem. You should have ford deal with this if its really an 07 truck because if it is a computer issue you would of wasted money if the independant shop doesnt have the capability to program a new computer. Plus it may be covered under warrenty still.

Maintanance kit replace

The machine displays the Replace Maintenance Kit after the Maintenance Kit has been replaced.
There may two causes for this issue.
  1. The machine does not recognize that the Maintenance Kit was removed. This would likely be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate.
  2. The machine corrupts the CRUM on the new Maintenance Kit. This may be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate or IO Board.
Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix.
  1. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message does not change to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a new Maintenance Kit.
  2. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message changes to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the IO Board and then install a different NEW Maintenance Kit. If the problem persists, replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a different NEW Maintenance Kit.
