Some testers do not test ALL the wires. Some will only test pair 1 and 2. You may want to use a DVM (Digital Voltmeter) set on the ohms function and check continuity on each of the eight wires from RJ-45 to RJ-45 connector or use a cable tester that will check all the wires. If you use a DVM check 1 to 1, 2 to 2 etc. for continuity. Good will read 0 ohms, open will read infinity or OL on some meters. 90% of all cable problems are poorly crimped or broken wires at the RJ-45 connector. It is difficult to be sure which end has the bad connection so you may need to change BOTH RJ-45 connectors. Do one, then check the cable, if it doesn't work, do the other one. It is a 50-50 shot. I prefer and encourage the rewiring color code using the EIA 568A standard. Starting at pin 1 the color code would be orange-white, orange, green-white, blue, blue-white, green, brown-white, brown. You don't have to do it that way, but you must make sure that the same color wire is on the same pin on each connector. If all else fails, you can go to you neighborhood computer shop for help in installing connectors. It takes a lot of practice to do it right. Hope this helps

How do I fix an hp officejet 6110 series scanner failure with repeated grinding noise?

  1. Reinstall the printer software: Uninstall the existing printer software and driver, and then install the latest version from
  • Restore factory default settings: For printers with touchscreen or menu-based control panels, locate the Restore Factory Defaults or similar menu under the Setup or Tools menu.
  • Use a shorter USB cable and connect it to the PC directly: HP supports USB cables less than 3 meters (9 ft 10 in) in length. Additionally, connect the cable to an available port on the computer instead of through a USB hub or docking station.

I have a 55 inch led samsung was recently bought last year and we are running a 100 ft cable from an hdmi splitter to the TV. Just recently the image has a blue tint and frequently goes in and out. We have...

A 100-foot cable from an HDMI SPLITTER? Why? You were lucky it ever worked. Reliable (?) HDMI cables of that length are rare and VERY COSTLY. Add in a splitter (which reduces signal quality and strength) and you have the recipe for disaster. My suggestion is that you try to find a better way to arrange you setup to reduce the cable length to a manageable distance.

Gps antenee not recieving signals

please do check the terminal connector of the gps to the antenna
connector cable there should be is a voltage reading of 5 volt dc on the gps using a multitester.if the answer is no then your gps receiver
is out of order.if 4 volt to almost 5volt that should be
be step is to check the gps antenna cable connector
to the gps antenna using multitester a for short or open connection.set the tester to x1 and calibrate setting then test
short cable should reading full almost zero on the scale,open has almost
no resistance at all.a good gps antenna will read a difference
of forward and reverse resistance reading i cannot tell u the actual reading
of the antenna because it all depend on the length of the cable
and the gps antenna model.but it usually work if u test it this way
please do take note that u are very sure of your setting on the
gps it self before u make this test.
good luck

I suddenly get a error message 5,202,54 Canon Lide 210

I was getting the same problem until I realised that this is powered from the USB port. I was also getting a core dump when trying to access it from Linux. Try reducing the length of the USB cable from the scanner to the computer and/or use a different USB port. The length of the cable is significant because the volts drop over even a short cable could cause problems. When I had this issue, I had a very long USB cable and it was coming up with error after error, when I used a much shorter one, the problem went away.

Good luck and best wishes,

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables

Changing the handle bars on a harley

If it's a simple swap out, meaning you aren't changing switch housings and stuff, it's not difficult to do. What is probably going to give you a problem is wire and cable lengths. Naturally, if your bars are taller or wider, you'll need longer wires and cables. If the bars are shorter or narrower, shorter wires or cables. If the wires are too long, this usually doesn't pose a problem, simply wad the excess wire up and hide it somewhere. If the cables are too long, you'll need to figure out the lengths that you need and probably order them aftermarket. Good Luck.

Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

Hub / wall connections

OK - I'm trying to visualize your setup...interesting!

My thoughts:
  1. The patch cable the electrician used is the same one you are using to connect to your hub?
    In other words: You checked the cables and they are all working fine?
  2. You are sure the hub is working?
It has to be either the hub or one of the cables. It looks like you are not exceeding the total length of UTP-5 (330ft).

Test all involved patch cables either with a cable tester or by plugging in a computer and see if there are any problems. amke sure the patch cables are "straight through", either 568A or 568B identical on both ends of the cable.


Do you have the chance to use another hub or switch for testing purposes?

Just come back here and leave a comment with your findings - I'm happy to help.

if connected via ethernet cable then i believe you have a bad network card, if connected via parrallel, then check to make sure the cable is not over 15 feet in length. also try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers on your computer as they sometimes become corrupt. Good luck!
