    There is a thin plastic lens that covers the main LCD. Most commonly Oils from your skin can work into the phone and lay between the lens and the screen.



    With your fingernail, you can gently work an edge of the lens till you can get under it and remove it. You can use a knife or tiny screwdriver. Once it starts to lift, it will come off easily, it is only held in place by a thin layer of adhesive around the edge.



    Take a lint free cloth and wipe the screen (CAREFULLY) and the back side of the lens. Then just lay the lens back in and you should be taken care of.



    If it is anything else, like a dark spot in the screen itself, or adhesive around the edge of the lens, let me know. I can tell you exactly what you would need and where to get the parts.

Step 1: Clean your workspace. Be sure to get a flat, hard surface without a lot of fabric, liquid, dust, etc.
Step 2: Lay the phone down and clean it well with the cleaning cloth provided. Do not use any kind of cleaning fluid or water, but try to be sure that all fingerprints are gone. Especially be sure no dust or lint particles are on the screen. Before proceeding be sure that there are not a lot of dust particles gathering near you, vaccum and clean the area up a bit more if need be. You want as sterile an area as possible before continuing.
Step 3: Being careful not to touch the sticky side of the screen protector, peel back the tab where indicated. Hold the screen protector only by the sides and line it up with the phone. If you touch the sticky side of the screen protector by accident do not try to clean it off, you will only make it worse. Line up and let the screen protector fall into place from the top of the phone to the bottom. Some people choose to use a credit card or thin piece of plastic to smooth out bubbles as the screen protector makes contact with their device, however this is usually not recommended by the makers of the screen protectors or the phone. The choice is yours, but bubbles are meant to smooth out over time, so take that into consideration.
Steap 4: Once the screen protector is on the device if it is straight and you can see bubbles but no lint or dust beneath it, you are successful, give it a few days for the bubbles to dissipate. If it is not on straight, you may be lucky enough to be able to lift it up and place it better without fault, however this is risky. If lint or dust has gotten between your phone and the screen protector you have likely failed, there is little recourse from here, other than removing the screen protector, cleaning the device, and trying with a new screen protector altogether.

Dell tv, wont come back on after warmed up.


Worked on a number of these sets and what do they have in common:

Main board problems with flatpacks (surface mounted chips) that are just badly soldered to begin with and or go bad with a short life (2-3 years).

The other common thread seems to be many of the sets no boards, no parts, no schematics are available.

What you can try to confirm or even locate the area where your problem is to take a small fan (I use one of the clamp style fans about 6 inches in Diameter and with back off place it over main signal board---I have done this and it can work for a while at least--even if you local it to one area of one board that board many times is not available.

Replaced the broken glass front of my iphone 3GS. Everything looked fine, but the slider on the screen does not work... Did the replacement protocol all over again, but nope no slider. Any...


On touch screen phones like the iphone and N97, when replacing the screen there is a small ribbon attched to the back of the screen that connects to the main circuit board.This ribbon allows your phone to recognize you touching the screen and makes the screen work. Take the front cover back off and check that the connector is clean and dust free (on the new screen and on the phone) reconnect the ribbon and push down gently until its securely in place and re-attach the screen to your handset.

This should solve your problem and hope it helps please rate thanks

Was cleaning inside of microwave and noticed the paint was bubbled and when I cleaned this area, all paint came off and metal was exposed 9about a 2 inch area). Should I use the microwave or will arching...


Hi Bonnie,

Do not use the microwave with the exposed metal surface.

What you can do is pick up some appliance touch up paint, it comes in a small plastic bottle with a brush. It looks similar to fingernail polish. It should be available at an appliance store such as Sears, Lowes, Home Depot etc.

Clean the area good and use sandpaper or steel wool if needed to make sure the area is smooth and clean. Then use the touch up paint to recoat the surface. Let dry before using the microwave oven, usually a couple hours or so.

Same problem with grill bubbling what to do 2004 niss murano


I've decided to "black" mine out with a high gloss black. First I'm going to take the grill off & see if I can use airplane paint remover on a small area to remove the coating that is bubbling.

If so, then i'll primer the surface & repaint it as is since it should be smooth after the remover works and I scrape it down and wash it clean.

You could then leave it once the clearcoat is removed, re-coat it with clearcoat, or paint it any color, even to match. Automotive spray paint is available at auto-parts stores for this type of material, just get the right can of spray paint.

If I find the paint remover won't work without hurting the actual grill, I'll use some fine grit sandpaper and prep the surface, then primer it and paint it high gloss black. Color choice is optional of course!


Maybe this will help.

91Mazda 626 dies suddenly after 10 minutes running fine


I had the same,drove me nuts,made sure of fuel and spark(about 10 times),all good.anyway after it stopped looked under bonnet to find petrol coming out of carb,(didn't notice this before because the petrol had evaporated by the time i looked).took carb apart ,cleaned and checked jets,all resonable.Then i looked at the float seemed good but checked by putting into boiling water only to find small bubbles coming out of the float !!!!! thus float not floating right, too much petrol and flooding and then stopping.But let it cool down and everything sorts itself out and your good for another 10 minutes.You can check for air leeks by spraying wd40 around suspected areas and looking for bubbles.am no expert but hope this helps.
In short air leaks bad. Float not floating bad.

Engine over heating


Make sure your radiator cap is in good condition, your vehicle's cooling system works on pressure really, to raise the boiling point.

Other than that, fill your cooling system with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water, and cycle it (run the car at idle) for a good 15 to 20 minutes.

Make sure the thermostat is opening. I have had a couple that wouldn't open until 240 degrees!

Finally, make sure you've gotten all the air out of the system. A common problem with most modern vehicles is air can get trapped in the cylinder head and intake manifold, the highest point of the cooling system. The air pockets make a small problem seem a lot worse. Air insulates, coolant draws heat, so you get a small area that heats quicker than the surrounding areas. Look for a small screw that looks like a brake bleeder, some cars have air bleeds on the top of the water pump or intake manifold. This will help you push the air out.

If all this doesn't help, consider taking the car to a local oil change shop and have the coolant force-flushed... this will push coolant into areas that just pouring it in can't reach.

Phone turns on screen is black


I fixed one. Unscrew the 4 screws in the corners of the screen which are under little rubber grommets. I used a small watchmakers screwdriver. Pry the front pannel off (it will unclip, but be careful). Without this on, it worked straight away. I suspected it was an insulation problem. I got some cigarette papers and placed them over the contact areas of the phone, be liberal with it. Then, I closed it back up and rescrewed it....cliped the excess paper, and it worked fine!
