APPLE iPHONE 6 PLUS GOING HAYWIRE


my Iphone 6 plus was going crazy I think it's called ghosting when it does things without me touching it and when I do it goes nuts here's what I found out and used to cure it, so far this has been successful for two weeks.
open your iphone using online instructions
you will need an opening kit Amazon do them inc a suction cup. a pentelope screwdriver a lever a cross screwdriver also black electrical tape,
open as instructed careful to prize it on the rim, rest the screen open against a folded towel no need to remove it completely,
unscrew the five cross screws holding the display assembly cable, it's a metal plate with 5 screws these are all different sizes I used an address label with the ends folded down onto a sheet of paper with the sticky side up and wrote 1 to 5 around it place the screws on the label to hold and replace in the sequence you choose.
cut a piece of tape to fit the back of the metal plate trim around edges poke a needle through the holes to allow the screws easy access.
replace the metal plate.
close the phone, replace the screws, this works due to the metal plate originally not having a firm hold causing overheating on the cables causing the erratic screen,
I found this tip online on MacRumors posted by Mdsune, and it worked so well I am passing it on.... hope it helps :)

Scrub, Clean, and Lube. Why it’s important to focus on metal to metal contact areas during brake replacement


It comes with no surprise that brake service is the most highly contested service when it comes to vehicle repair. This is because most often customers are left to make a decision to replace their brakes without the proper education as to why they need to service their brakes to begin with. I am not saying that customers don't understand that brakes wear out over time. What I am saying is that customers don't typically understand why an estimate to replace their brakes cost so much. Most often people thing "Aren't they just replacing the pads and rotors? I could do that!"; and you're right! You could do that, but here are some tips to help you with a professional repair. My goal is to educate you so you either: 1.Have a better understanding of what goes into a quality brake repair; or
2.You gain the knowledge and confidence to complete the work yourself; an
3.Your brake repair will be a quality repair and you will experience minimal issues down the road
Scrub, clean, and lube, what is it?
Good question! Scrub, clean, and lube is a process that professionals follow to prepare all metal to metal contact surfaces to insure "like new" performance after brake replacement. The idea behind this, is that you want to restore all contact surfaces as close to factory condition as you possibly can. The only way to do that is with a little bit of work. By investing a little bit of time in this process you will greatly increase the life expectancy of your brand-new brake pads and rotors. So, let us get started!
Scrub
Once you have disassembled the brake assembly (one side at a time) you want to start by "scrubbing" all contact surfaces. This will require some tools like:
    1.Sandpaper
    2.Angle grinder
    3.A green Scotch-Brite™ Premium Clean and Finish Disc
    4.Wire brush
    5.Scotch-Brite™Roloc™Brake Hub Cleaning Disc Kit
    6.Scotch-Brite™ Roloc™ Bristle Disc (for aluminum surfaces) I typically start with the hub. You will want to scrub the entire surface that contacts the brake rotor. If there is rust left on the face of the rotor, you will create a brake pulsation that will present itself somewhere between 200-7,000 miles. Essentially you want the face of the hub to be flat, flush, and even. If the rust is left untreated there will be high spots that throws the alignment of the rotor off causing the rotor to contact the pads with each revolution. Scrubbing the face of the hub will help decrease the chances of this happening and decrease the chances of brake pulsation developing.
    You accomplish this by scrubbing around the lug studs with Scotch-Brite™Roloc™Brake Hub Cleaning Disc Kit. You can continue to use this tool to scrub around the pilot of the hub and the gaps between each lug stud or lug hole. If you do not own this tool or you do not want to spend the money to invest in a tool like this, you can use sandpaper. Just understand that sandpaper will take a lot longer and you will have to work much harder to accomplish this task to the same level of quality as the hub cleaning disc.
    Once you have scrubbed the hub face. Next, we move on to the anchor bracket (also known as the caliper bracket). Remove the hardware and the slide pins from the bracket. Use a wire brush to remove rust and buildup from the anchor bracket where the hardware sits. If there is rust that is stubborn and stuck to the anchor bracket you can use an angle grinder with a green Scotch-Brite™ Premium Clean and Finish Disc. You must be careful not to change the shape of the anchor bracket in any way. You are only trying to remove the rust from the bracket. If you alter the shape of the bracket the hardware will fit too loosely, brake noise and uneven brake ware will occur.
    While you have all your scrubbing tools out. It is best practice to scrub the pilot hole and contact surface on the back of the wheel as well. This insures the wheel is flat, flush, and even. Use Scotch-Brite™ Roloc™ Bristle Disc (for aluminum surfaces) if you have aluminum wheels. If you have steel wheels you can use a wire brush.
    I know what you are saying, "that's a lot of work". Trust me, if you follow this advice you are on the right track to restoring your brakes to "like new" performance and they will have a very long service life. Let's move on to cleaning.
    Clean
    Yay, cleaning. This process seems pretty straight forward. You will need some clean rags and a can of brake clean. Spray the face of the hub and anchor bracket with brake clean to insure a nice clean surface. Next, whip the slide pins clean with a clean rag.
    Lube
    I have covered the types of lubricant in a previous post. We will not cover types here, but if you would like to up your game in which types of lubricant go where. I would suggest reading that post was well. Matter of fact, I wouldn't lubricate anything without knowing where it goes because certain types of lube will cause rubber to swell (Anti-seize). So, please make sure you educate yourself on this topic before you start lubricating. The link to that article is here http://www.fixya.com/cars/r27246435-brake_lubricant_s_important_use_correct.
    You want to start by lubricating the face of the hub and the pilot but use care not to get the lubricant on the lug studs or inside the holes for the lug bolts. Next, lubricate the anchor bracket where the brake hardware sits (this step helps prevent rust from forming on the anchor bracket later on down the road). Install the new brake hardware (This is a must! Always use new brake hardware) and lubricate the surface of the new hardware where the pads make contact. Then, lubricate the slide pins (using a silicon-based brake lubricant only). And finally, lubricate the back of the pad each pad (only where it makes contact with the caliper piston and the fingers for the caliper). Install all of your new parts and torque everything (with a torque wrench) to factory specifications.
    I hope this tip is helpful for you, but please understand. "Use at your own risk" the topics covered in this tip are for reference only. In no way does this tip substitute or replace manufacturers procedures and specifications. Brake systems should always be serviced by a professional. Any failures that result from negligence or failure to follow proper procedures are solely the responsibility of the individual that performed the brake service.

7 things to keep in mind when taking a car loan


With rising earnings throughout the years, just as gigantic increment in rush hour gridlock and contamination, owning a vehicle is never again the "grown-up toy" it used to be. While a few suburbanites may lean toward taxis or open transport, having (something like) one vehicle in the family is very regular at this point.

For some, this is likewise connected to proficient development so the higher you ascend in your vocation, the higher your yearnings with regards to picking a vehicle brand. Cash is no issue as banks and money organizations are upbeat to offer you a vehicle advance, and here are a few points you should remember when taking a vehicle advance.

1. Check your FICO assessment

This is an absolute necessity before applying for any advance. The RBI has made it obligatory for credit departments to give one free credit report for every timetable year to a person upon solicitation. Get your credit report and check your FICO assessment to decide qualification for an advance. In the event that your score is on the lower side, no stresses - there are approaches to improve your FICO assessment.

2. Pre-possessed versus new vehicle

When that is off the beaten path, choose in the event that you need a fresh out of the box new vehicle or a pre-possessed vehicle. Cost aside, there's likewise a distinction in credit terms offered for pre-claimed vehicles contrasted with new autos. A few banks likewise have tie-ups with approved vendors of pre-claimed vehicles which can get you extra advantages.

3. Arrange the expense and additional items

Regardless of showroom sticker cost, there is dependably space for arrangement. Visit different businesses and check at the best cost. Vendors are more than willing to offer a rebate in the event that you ask - question is, what amount? You can likewise get a decent deal where the seller will toss in some additional fittings/frill or pay the protection premium for the main year to add to the arrangement. Confirm the on-street value considering charges and different expenses.

4. Pick the loan specialist

There is no deficiency of choices and these banks can be comprehensively delegated;

a) bank in which you have your pay account

b) outsider fund organization

c) account arm of the vehicle maker (a gathering organization)

d) bank which has a tie-up with the vehicle maker

5. Search for the best credit terms

A vehicle is a deteriorating resource whose esteem endures a shot the minute it is driven out of the showroom, so once vehicle model and cost is chosen, check

a) credit qualification - various of your month to month/yearly pay or for a pre-affirmed sum

b) financing - a few banks/fund organizations offer advance upto 100%, others account 70-80%

c) advance inclusion - if advance covers just showroom cost or on-street cost

d) financing cost and type - bring down the better, and whether fixed or coasting rate

e) residency - shorter the residency (3-5yrs), the lesser your general outpouring, contrasted with a 7yr residency

f) reimbursement - fixed EMIs, venture up/down EMIs (portion esteem expands/diminishes every year), swell EMIs (single amount paid toward the end)

Check with no less than 2-3 banks/account organizations before at long last choosing one.

6. Hypothecation conventions

When you take an advance to purchase a vehicle, it is hypothecated to the bank/account organization you take the credit from, which gives them the privilege to catch your vehicle if there is any default in installment of the EMIs. The bank/money organization's name will be on the vehicle's enrollment endorsement. When your advance is paid up, you will get affirmation of credit conclusion with a No Objection Certificate routed to the RTO, expelling the hypothecation. This is typically substantial for 3 months so once got, present a duplicate to the insurance agency for change of proprietorship in the arrangement and after that to the RTO to get another enlistment testament issued with your name as the proprietor.

7. Continuously read the fine print

Check the credit terms for subtleties on handling expenses, pre-installment charges, if incomplete installment is permitted and whatever other provisions that could influence you later.

How to Clean and Sterilize Baby Bottles?


How to clean baby bottles after each use

It is mandatory that the bottles, lids and other pieces of equipment that are used to prepare the feed for the baby should be regularly cleaned before and after use.
  1. As fast as your baby finished the food, it is recommended to wash the bottle, its lid in lukewarm water.
  2. As for milk bottles, we suggest you to use a brush to clean the bottle and make sure the bottle doesn't leave any dried milk that usually gets stuck inside the bottle and the cap.
  3. Whenever you are finished with the cleaning process, again rinse it well with water and allow it to dry in air for some time.
This detailed process of cleaning is absolutely necessary to make sure there are no traces of milk left inside the bottle. But unfortunately, in spite of this cleaning, it is not ensured that the bottle is germ free completely.

Cleaning baby bottles in the dishwasher

When you are using a dishwasher and if you clean the bottles in the hottest water setting, it is believed that the sterilization process is effective.
  1. First, all the bottle parts should be separated
  2. All the bottle parts should be cleaned and rinsed properly to get rid of dried milk left inside the bottles.
  3. Keeping in mind that the items should not fall at the bottom of the dishwasher, all the small parts of the bottle like vents, *******, lid etc should be kept in a dishwasher safe bowl.
  4. It is recommended to run the dishwasher in sanitizing mode for better results.
  5. To make the things dry after a wash, empty the dishwasher bowl and place all the parts including the bottle in a clean cloth to make it dry.


Sterilizing baby bottles by Boiling

By using the boiling process it is ensured that no germs are left over in the bottle, by raising the temperature to high level.
  1. After cleaning, place the bottles and its parts in a separate saucepan (kept exclusively for baby bottle cleaning propose) over the stove burner.
  2. To ensure no air bubbles will be found, add enough quantity of water in the saucepan to cover the bottles and the parts of bottles.
  3. Quickly boil the water in a high temp for 5-6 mins. Over boiling baby bottles should be avoided.
  4. Turn the gas stove off and give time to the water to get sufficiently cool.
  5. Next clean and disinfect the area where you are about to keep the bottles and wash your hands before handling the bottle.
  6. Pick the bottles from the saucepan and shake it well to drain out the excess water.
  7. If you are not planning to use the bottles within next 24 hrs, put the cap and lid into the bottle and keep it in a separate container in the refrigerator.
  8. When planning for use after 24 hrs, boil the bottle and parts again before using it for the baby


Sterilizing baby bottles with Chemicals


The next process is sterilization by the chemical process. The chemical sterilizers come in the form of liquid or tablet which we need to dilute in water while sterilizing to make the disinfection process of bottles perfect.
  1. Before starting, do follow the instructions given by the manufacturers of the chemical sterilizers to prepare the sterilizing solution.
  2. Make the bottle and its parts separate and place those in the sterilizing solution. Bottle and its parts should be in a position that it remains under the sterilizing solution so that no air bubbles form.
  3. Keep the equipment pieces in the solution for the required amount of time of app. 30-35 mins (check manufacturers instruction for the time)
  4. Now, pick the bottle and its parts from the solution and drain them.
  5. You should not rinse the sterilizing solution as there is a chance of germs to get exposed again.
  6. Then clean the bottle and all equipment in soapy warm water and let it dry.
N.B. Dispose the solution after 24 hrs of use.

Electrolytic capacitors in circuit board testing procedure with POWER OFF.


electrolytic capacitors are most common and widely used in every electronic and electrical circuit boards ,they function good and smooth in circuit if they are in normal functioning order and if they are not healthier then they impact very bad on the whole electronic or electrical system,they can disable the whole circuit on and off ,erratic on and off, lower or block the system voltage ,lower or block the system current ,lower or block the system signals and also erratic system functioning.
now there is good procedure to grab any suspicious electrolytic capacitors to test them in the circuit board as well out from the circuit board with help of oscilloscope and 1000 cycle square wave 0.5 volt frequency generator, the generator for the electrolytic capacitor must not be above 0.5 volts range otherwise above this voltage range it will triggers the nearby transistor and ICs that will intrupt the test.
CAUTION. these all test are POWER OFF test,and capacitors should be all in fully discharged state, unplug the power from the system for these tests.
1) connect or touch the two leads of your square wave generator to the capacitors both leads it does not matter if it is positive or negative touch your oscilloscope lead and observe the signal , there is now no square wave signal passing instead you will observe a good triangle signal passing through oscilloscope screen it means it is a sign of healthy good capacitor,
compare it with the good one capacitor for double check.
2) connect or touch the two leads of your square wave generator to capacitors both leads it does not matter if it is positive or negative touch your oscilloscope lead and observe the signal , there is now square wave signal passing ,that is now become short in amplitude square wave signal passing through oscilloscope screen it means that capacitors become resistive or dried up or changed in value bad capacitor,electrolytic chemical inside is dried up,need replacement with the good identical one, compare with the another good capacitor for double check.
3)connect or touch the two leads of your square wave generator to capacitors both leads it does not matter if it is positive or negative touch your oscilloscope lead and observe the signal , there is now no square wave signal instead you will observe a bent or distorted square wave passing through oscilloscope screen it means it is a sign of bad capacitor, that have changed its value ,need replacement with identical one capacitor.
compare it with the good one capacitor for double check.
4) connect or touch the two leads of
your square wave generator to the capacitors both leads it does not matter if it is positive or negative ,then touch your oscilloscope lead and observe the signal , there is square wave signal with no change in amplitude you will observe a signal passing through oscilloscope screen it means it is bad complete dried up capacitor showing very high resistance in the circuit board ,need replacement with good identical one capacitor.
compare it with the good one for double check.

How does the shot blasting machine handle steel abrasives with oil?


Oil-coated steel abrasives must be air-dried when they are treated with a shot blasting machine, otherwise the treatment effect will be directly affected.

Workpiece coating, pre-bonding treatment
Shot blasting can remove all dirt like scales on the surface of the workpiece, and establish a very important basic pattern on the surface of the workpiece (the so-called rough surface). By changing the abrasives with different sizes, different degrees of roughness are achieved, and the bonding force among the workpiece, the coating, and the plating material are greatly improved, or make the bonding part stronger and of better quality.

Rough surface cleaning and cleaning workpiece after heat treatment
The shot blasting can clean all the dirt on the surface of the workpiece after casting and forging, such as oxide scale and oil stain, and polish the surface of the workpiece to improve its smoothness. The workpiece is exposed to a uniform metallic color, which makes the appearance of the workpiece more beautiful and achieves the effect of beautifying the decoration.

Cleaning burr of the machining parts and surface beautification
Shot blasting can clean the surface of the workpiece with small burrs, and make the surface of the workpiece flatter, eliminating the damage of burrs and improving the grade of the workpiece. And the shot blasting can make a small rounded corner at the intersection of the workpiece surface, making the workpiece look more beautiful and more precise.

Improve the mechanical properties of the parts.
After the sandblasting, the mechanical parts can produce uniform and fine concave and convex surfaces (base pattern) on the parts, so that the lubricating oil can be stored, and the lubrication conditions can be improved and the noise can be reduced, which improves the service life of the machine.

Polishing
For workpieces that use for some special purpose, sand blasting can achieve different reflection or matt, such as stainless steel workpieces, matt surface of wooden furniture, decorative pattern on frosted glass surfaces, and texturing on the surface of fabrics.
