I had the same problem and no it is not because of heat. In most cases when you turn a scanner off it has data stored in its RAM and ROM memory banks, this data is cleared out of the scanner if you do not have a memory backup battery. The problem with your scanner is the RAM data might be corrupted, reprogram your radio using only the priority banks and never turn your scanner off unless you have a backup battery, if you do, you'll have to keep reprogramming it. Instead of turning it off, just turn it down.

Hi I have a Aldi bauhn LCD tv and its not recieving the remote signal. I have checked through a camera for the remote control light signal and it works with every button. So that leaves the reciever


Will cost more to fix then a new unit , replace it and try to buy a extended warranty with the new one, most times you can get 3 years after the original warranty runs out.

How come my Nokia 7610 cant send anymore txts and cant recieve any either?? it also cant accept any calls.. and also my phone battery gets drained so easily


Hi!... If the phone has signal an then you can't send and recieve text try to goto> Message> Message settings> Message Center Number or Center number , then compare it with another user with the same network if its the same or else copy his/her Msg Center Number if he' she is able text... And for your battery problem, how long are you using the battery?... If you always leave it overnight charging so it might be damaged or leak,... Try to buy a new battery...

Turn signals not working


hello
as long as there was no recent modifications to a different style of turn signal, then yes the flasher relay has failed. the fact that they do illuminate to the turn signal being switched says that the system is recieveing the voltage it needs. so that would leave the flasher to blame.
the only other possibility would be a very low voltage.

I can't get the 200 channels to recieve


GO TO YOUR FIRE STATION AND THEY SOMETIMES WILL GIVE YOU THE FREQUENCIES YOU NEED TO PUT INTO YOUR SCANNER. IF NOT, UNIDEN SELLS A MANUAL THAT LISTS ALL CHANNELS FOR WHAT YOU NEED.

I have a Hitachi Plasma TV model 55HDS69 that recently went black while being watched. I turned the main power off and unpluged it overnight and tried turning it back on, but only the red standby light...


Do it again, only this time unplug any video and audio inputs and outputs, unplug it from any power source, and leave it sit overnight.

I had the same problem with my Hitachi. I called a local repair shop and he said to unplug it for 10 minutes and start it again. That didn't work so I got it ready to take to the shop. I disconnected everything. The next morning I decided to check it one more time so I reconnected everything. It worked just as it had before.

I hope it works for you.
