Question about Nokia 3200

1 Answer

Similar to submerged in water problem

I went fishing and a 10 ft wave crashed against the rocks, made me fall over and im pretty sure my phone got wet, im not entirely sure how wet because i was wearing a water proof jacket....
anyway it has been months since then and i have had my father look at it [he was an electrician] and he dried it etc, couldnt see any other problems so put it back together. It will turn on but at the most only ever comes up with a blank screen saying 'please insert SIM' even when inserted.any suggestions would be very good.

It doesn't take very long for corrosion from sea water set in, and it's not that easy to effectively clean and dry it(drying isn't enough, salt water residue is left). Your dad helped it some, otherwise the phone would be completely dead, but some localized damage did happen. I think the SIM in this model is relatively exposed and it's likely that it suffered some of the water damage. Try another SIM and see what happens - if it works OK then you really got away with it with a slap on the arm, but I doubt that it's the only thing broken. Good luck

My hummingbird rf15 smartcast fish finder has stopped still provides the water temperature but it no longer displays the depth and does not scan the bottom.

The Smartcast system uses the wireless version of a simple transducer and thermometer to locate fish, show structure and water temperature. From your description, it sounds like the transducer portion of the Smartcast device has stopped working.
Transducers are both simple and complex, sturdy and delicate. Here is a Science Minute: A fish finder electrical signal is sent to the transducer. The electrical signal to energize the transducer crystal is generated by an amplifier. The energized crystal reverberates at a particular frequency, to convert the electrical signal into mechanical acoustic or sound energy. The acoustic energy or sound waves causes oscillation of the water molecules through which the sound travels. The sound is pulsed out in a defined beam. These do not travel out in a straight line but in a wave pattern. The acoustic pulse travels through the water at a rate of approximately 4800 ft (1500m) per second in saltwater and 4920 ft/sec in fresh water.

The problem is that the crystal in all transducers (permanent mount, thru-hull mount and castable) is delicate. It is a crystal. Unfortunately the warranty on most of these is six months, and unless yours is newer than that, you may need to buy a replacement castable. The handheld unit should still work. While I think the idea of knowing what is "over there" is a good one for shore fishing, I haven't bought these systems because I could never get over the idea that repetitive casting of a crystal, no matter how well-housed, was a good idea. Good luck.

I have a 1990 Honda XR 250 and when i kick it over the kick start ether jams and will not move but if i rock the bike back and foward in gear it will free but still no compresion. I havnt tried to crash...

You need to drain your oil, then remove the right side-case. When the side case is removed you will notice the kick-starter return spring will have a little tab that bends toward the center cases. that tab needs to be inserted into its proper place.>>( its apperantly has slipped out of place.) This is pretty common so don't be to alarmed over it. You will notice it right away once the case is off. If your not sure how the tab fits in place--try looking at a parts fish or go to the dealer and have the parts guy pull it up on the computer screen. I do not recommend bump starting it while that spring is no secured in its proper place.

When we are deep water (500 ft or deeper) the fish finder will display 3.5-10 ft. and won't show the fish or shows tons of fish. Are we able to set the depth that we would like to see eg: if we are...

Im not familiar with your particular unit but you should be using a low frequency transducer for water over 500'; something like a 50 kHz transducer or a dual frequency transducer like a 50/200kHz for detail with the high freq. but increased depth range on the lower frequency. As far as setting it to 250 ft, you should be able to use the range feature and adjust the maximum to 250'. typically the factory default is automatic so it will caonstantly adjust the range based on the maximum current depth.

Im cooking fish, how much oil ?

Enough to submerge the fish in the basket. Easiest way to get it pretty close:
1. Place the basket in the cooking pot.
2. Fill to the estimated displacement with water. The estimated volume would about half the height of the basket in the pot, if you were to fill the basket with fish half way. This way you know that you'll have enough to cover the fish when you start frying.
3. Measure the water. If you have the markings stamped in the side of the pot, this is pretty easy. Otherwise, pour the water into a gallon jug, keeping tally on how much water you removed from the pot. A partial gallon at the end is easily estimated. Works the same for liters, depending on where you live.
4. Dry the pot thoroughly before you add the oil.

they sell algae killer for ponds and water nurseries and some pet stores that u measure a dose for pond size and add to water to clear up. if there are no fish and don't plan on having fish in pond add several gallons of bleach as cheap cure


No, if you beat the fishing hole game you'll get the frog lure, good but not for the job, you must go through the hole in Zora´s Domain and talk to the "monster" there, she will give you a sketch, you must go to Kakariko village´s graveyard and show the Zora prince the sketch, he will give you an earring which will automatically add to your fishing rod, then go to Zora's Domain and fish the reekfish as if it were any other fish
