Hello

Older models of TVs have three types of remote controls. First one is of wired to the tv, second one is ultrasound type and third and newer one is infrared type. Out of these three, your TVs may be one amoung the second stated. Ultrasound type, or infrared type. You have to make sure about the type of remote which your tv has opted. If it is ultrasound type, there will be small window protected with a type of net in front of the remote control and the same type window can be seen at the front panel of your TV. If it is infrared tywp, there will be an LED [Light Emitting Diode], which radiate pulses in infrared which cannot be detected by human eye.
Make sure which amoung the two mentiond above is in your TV first. If it is ultrasound type, it will be difficult to match it with an other remote control, even though it is ultrasound radiating type, because, its frequency is so determined for both the remote control and the remote sensor inside your tv, which cannot be matched each other with an other one.
If it is an infrared type, you have to go for a Universal Remote Control, and look for whether your TV model is listed in its code lists, and have specified codes and procedures. Ther eisa chance for damage of the remote sensor inide the TV also. If it is so, if the Tv is of ultrasound type, it will be alamost impossible to repair, and if it is infrared type, can be repalced with same type and number.
Look these matter keenly and do the needy. If you need any more assistance, feel free to get me through Fixya. OK.

Use hidden international wallpapers and themes in windoes 7

When you first install Windows 7, it asks for your language, time and currency. Based on your responses, it installs a set of wallpapers and themes. If you choose English (United States) for your time and currency format, for example, the available desktop backgrounds and themes will include a United States section with scenery from locations such as Maine, the Southwest and so on.
Hidden, though, are background scenery and themes from other English-speaking countries -- Australia, Canada, Great Britain and South Africa. Normally, you can't access those backgrounds or themes, but there is a simple way you can install and use them:

1. In the search box in the Start menu, type C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT and press Enter. (Note: If Windows 7 is installed in a drive other than C:, use that letter instead.)

2. Windows Explorer will launch and show you a list of subfolders under C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT: MCT-AU, MCT-CA, MCT-GB, MCT-US, and MCT-ZA. Each subfolder has wallpapers for a specific country: AU for Australia, CA for Canada, GB for Great Britain, US for the United States, and ZA for South Africa.
For any of the countries whose wallpaper and themes you want to use, go into its Theme folder, for example, C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\MCT-ZA\Theme. Double-click the theme you see there (for example ZA).

3. That will install a shortcut to the theme and wallpapers in the Personalization section of Control Panel.
You can now use them as you would any other theme or background, by right-clicking the desktop, choosing Personalize, and choosing a background or theme. They will be listed in their own section.

Sir ihave nokian70 just few minuts battery low plz solve my problem


Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Adjusting vertical height


I looked for info for your the Mct-2051 & imagine my surprise that Magnasonic not only doesn't have a manual for your model they don't recognize the model #. Excuse my sarcasm.

If MCT-2051 is not a typo, then the closest I could find was an MCT-2053 & there was no mention of a vertical height adjustment by software control. From my past experience this adjustment can only be performed by a TV tech because you need to access the inside of the TV.

The fact the picture has shrunk this much means that the vertical height driver is failing & eventually you will see nothing but a vertical line, stretched across the screen. Which will mean, that do to Magnasonics' lack of support, you'll be out of luck.

When shopping in the future for a TV try to stay with name brands who will support their products.

By the way, where did you hear that you could adjust the VH utilizing the remote? That could possibly be a function of digital device like a computer monitor, not an analog device like your TV.
