I have a N97 myeslf and had exactly the same problem. Mine had this problem due to being accidently dropped and through dust from work. If you are not experienced in taking mobile phones apart seek expert assitance.
Flip your phone to open mode and you will see 2 little black rubber caps on the back side.
Remove the caps with a sharp tool, and then unscrew the 2 screw with a positive (+) precision screw driver.
You will then need to carefully unclip the top screen from the phone itslef.
WARNING!! please be careful while doing this as there is a ribbon attached from the screen to the phone.
Once opened, unclip the screen ribbon from the phone itself and blow on both connectors.
Reattach the ribbon and place screen back and screw in the screws.
This should stop youre phone automatically scrolling and stop it from turning off.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

Toshiba tv 40rv525u has started to change channels


My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna).
my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777..
later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel
I call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and time.

Now, I found how to fix it myself.

In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV.
========================
What I did
========================
unplug the power cord.
Remove back cover.
Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).

First, I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable).
I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.

I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard.
I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.

Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.

DONE.

I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there.
Close the TV back panel

I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling.
NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.

Hope this help someone else.

  • Turn off the printer. Turn on the printer.

I need the reset code to preform a factory reset


soft resetting :

-Back to factory settings: This should maintain your data (contacts/messages/calendar/notes etc), just returning your N97 back to all previous settings

From menu:
Settings> Phone>Phone Management>Factory Settings

hard resetting:

The traditional method won't work as the N97 doesn't have the old keypad. After you've backed up your data onto memory card/pc/ovi, turn your phone off and simultaneously press these four buttons circled in red.
  • Caps shift
  • Space bar
  • Delete button
  • On button
You'll know it's worked when you see the initial set up screen, asking country of origin.
