First off those inverters have a tw2o year warranty so if you have had them less then 2 years I would take them back and try to get a replacement...

As far as repairing them goes... the problem is in the overload and it is not resetting... the inverters are getting too hot and then shutting down. The overloads are probably not field replaceable....

You can take a look also at this manual for you inverter incase you do not have yours anymore...

MKV to DV Converter for Mac

As we know, the Matroska Multimedia Container is free container format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in concept to other containers like AVI, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only.

DV is a format for recording and playing back digital video, in its smaller tape form factor MiniDV, has since become a standard for home and semi-professional video production; it is sometimes used for professional purposes as well, such as filmmaking and electronic news gathering (ENG). The DV specification defines both the codec and the tape format.

DV features good video quality, especially compared to earlier consumer analog formats such as Video8, Hi8 and VHS-C. DV now enables filmmakers to produce movies inexpensively, and is strongly associated with independent film and citizen journalism.

If you want to playback MKV files on your Powermac, you will find that MKV videos cannot be seen in imovie or idvd for mac. But don’t worry about that, Mac MKV to DV Converter can offer you to convert MKV to DV easily, and allow you to edit MKV files with its powerful editting function, for example, clipping MKV videos, merging several MKV files, setting size of video frame by cropping.

Find flash contact for iphone 3GS

The iPhone 3GS does not have a flash. The iPhone 4 was first model.

Some battery / charging cases (lenmar is one) will have a light that you can turn on independent of the phone. That will be your only option.

If you overloaded your inverter you may have burned out internal circuitry. It's not hard to exceede 450 watts. I don't think there is any way to repair your inverter that won't cost more than a new one. Have you checked to see if there is any overload protection on this unit I had one of these several years ago and I seem to remember ther being black button on the back that was a reset. Hope this helps. Thanks

Safety Inquiry

Improper use of a power inverter could result in personal injury. The inverter should not be installed in the vehicle’s engine compartment. Keep the inverter free from moisture as liquids conduct electricity, which may lead to serious damage or injury! Do not use the inverter near flammable materials or where fumes or gases may accumulate. The AC Output (neutral) wire should be vonded to ground, except in special applications. See owner’s manual for more details.

Night shots

Hi: Well, I think you have a problem because you cannot take still shots at night :) Not even with the best SLR. The camera as to get light to make the picture. My advices are, not only use the tripod but when you shoot, but set the timer function so you don't touch the camera when it shoot's and use a high time of exposure like 2 or 5 seconds depending on the subject... Make several experiences with low resolution and when you suceed, make it with a higher resolution ;) Regards
