Apple Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

There are several causes for this:
  • Dust buildup in the computer prevents proper cooling, so the fans have to work harder.
  • Corrupted Power Manager chip settings. Go to the Apple support page and search for "Power Manager" "reset" and your specific model. You can get the model number from the System Profiler utility (Apple menu: About this Mac: More Info). If this is the problem, resetting the Power Manager should solve it. If it happens again after unplugging, you may need a new clock/PRAM battery;
  • Bad temperature sensor (all fans run at high speed);
  • Shorted fan driver transistor on the logic board or in power supply (one fan always runs at max speed).

Close the Kindle app and restart it. If that does not help, try restarting your MacBook. If that does not work, try deleting the Kindle and reloading it on your system. Everything you got from Amazon will still be in your Amazon account.

Restart your computer, always refresh the system after it comes on like 2 times, run fewer programs at a time, free up hard disk, remove virus and malware, and run a disc scan

> Is there a way to replace the backlight with OEM parts? Yes, presuming that you don't electrocute yourself as you disassemble the unit, and that you have the correct tools. > Or would I need to look into getting 3rd party LEDs to replace the current one(s)? Not the correct part to replace. Instead, replace the "inverter".

As most iTunes users know, iTunes not only allows users to purchase classic films or popular videos from its store but also provide rental service for the users. People are more likely to rent a movie than buy one, that means cost less. However, low cost also has its drawbacks. Once you've started to watch the movie, you have 24 hours to finish watching the movie (even if you start watching before the download is complete). You can watch the movie as many times as you want within this 24-hour period. The rented movie will expire when either the 30 day or 24-hour limit is reached. Once the rental expires, the movie is automatically deleted. You must re-rent and download the movie to view it after your rented movie has expired. So in order to keep iTunes movie rentals for long time with MP4 players while not online, the rented files needed to be converted with an appropriate program. Instructions
  1. Download a converter program like M4V Converter Plus for Win. Install the program by double-clicking on the installation file after download. Finish the installation, click the icon and launch it.
  2. Click the Add Movies in top left corner, then you will see the pop up windows which will show you all the iTunes purchases and rentals. Find the file you want to convert and click OK button.
  3. The added movie rentals will show up on the main window. And then set the output as you need. Here we choose Same as source for MP4 from the output profile list.
  4. Click Convert button to start the iTunes movie rentals to MP4 conversion.
More info about M4V Converter Plus M4V Converter Plus is an all-in-one DRM M4V removal tool for users which can not only get rid of DRM protection from iTunes movie rentals, but also convert them to various popular video formats like MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, FLV and so on. Both Windows version and Mac version of M4V Converter Plus are available for users. Convert Any iTunes M4V to MOV
