Question about Cell Phones

I recently purchased a new case for my android and it fits a little bit snug. Anyway, now when I lock the phone and put it in the case I cat a car home screen and I don't know why it's coming on and how to disable it.

    Thanks Nina, but while we're on this topic, how would you enable handsfree. I was unable to find that either?

    I have a Verizon Motorola Droid 2 version 2.2

    That doesn't really help me but for future reference, I found out with a little bit of playing around that the search button on the droid 2 will activate voice options which is apparently also what activated car dock. If I turn the phone around in the case, it doesn't turn on. Just in case someone else has that problem.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to disable that function. But, there is a $.99 app called Dock Blocker that would prevent the Droid from going to that screen when using a holster or tight case.

Hope this helps.

    For the E815, CAR MODE will enable the speakerphone whenever you answer a

    There's another app - ShakeIt:

    • allows you to shake the phone to unlock the screen

    • allows you to flip the phone upside down to enable the speakerphone while on a call. You may need to point the screen towards the floor to get it to turn on.

I recently acquired a Singer Zig Zag model 457. The machine was not picking up the cotton from the bobbin so I took out the bobbin and the bobbin casing. Now I cannot get the casing to fit back ptoperly so...

there are little tips on the 'backside' side of the bobbin casing you just have to wiggle the casing around keepingin mind that the back side needs to fit into place for the rest to drop on in. then you have to get just a little forceful with the the little black brace that should snug the bobbin casngback into place and keep it secure

Router bits

Mike, The fit is just a little more snug than you expect. The collet is springy, and will expand to fit your bits, even if they were oversize (which is very unlikely). Put on a leather glove and just push the shank of the bit into the collet. Do not try to file down the shank of your router bits, you will only make them run eccentric. You don't need to remove the collet. Just loosen the locking nut about a half turn after it is easy to turn. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa. Al Kupchella

Put a new screen in and still no picture as the screen broke so bought a new one fitted it still no picture

I recently replaced my screen on this phone and found it a bit fiddly especially when putting the ribbon back in to its connector, just make sure its in properly and that you have not damaged the little connector because i did and had to replace the slider and then it was fine.

How do you fit 6mm collet cone on new produce

You have, I presume, already locked the spindle and loosened the collet nut with the wrench, have you not?
Once the nut is loose, you should be able to remove it by spinning it off the threads by hand. Then insert the 6 mm collet cone into the collet,
carefully thread the collet nut back onto the collet, and tighten it with the bit in place.
Sometimes bits are a snug fit, especially into a new collet. If you have some fin sandpaper you can gently chamfer the very end of the bit where you first insert it into the collet, and this may help to insert it. If you have to, push a bit.
I have noticed that some companies tend to mill the shafts of their bits a little too close to the exact tolerance, or even oversize them slightly, and this can cause frustration when inserting their bits. In exceptional circumstances, I have resorted to polishing a couple of small bit shafts with very fine (600 grit or so) emory cloth, just to allow the bit to enter the collet. I would not recommend this with a new router collet, unless you have checked the bit with a micrometer and it is oversize. Odds are you just need to break things in a little.
The force need not be brutish, but you may need to use some force, yes.

If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

I have purchased a used volvo the garage assured me it had recently had a new cambelt fitted i have been in touch with the main vovo dealer but they couldnt provide me with any service history how can...

Normally, the one that replaces the cambelt puts a sticker on the beltcover, so anyone can see it has been done at a specific km/miles. Any selfrespecting mechanic anyway.
If you're not sure, find someone who can do it for you and don't take any chances. It's not that hard a job with the petrol's anyway.
good luck and enjoy the car.
