Liquid leaking out of LCD tv…

Wondering if anyone else has had this happen before. Today my tv was working fine when I turned it on for about 15 minutes, and then the majority of the screen went black with some bands of colors at the bottom, but I could still hear the sound. After exhausting everything trying to figure out what’s wrong, my roommate and I picked it up to move it and a clear liquid that looks like water leaked out. It had to have been at least 1/2 cup, plus more that it left on the tv stand where the base of the tv was.

Iphone help.

I was trying to erase all of the personal content off of a 3G (it was jailbroken with 3.1.3 on it) so I can sell it. I went through the settings and chose "reset all settings and erase all content". Now it’s stuck at the apple logo. Looking at google it appears that what I did actually wiped out the OS as well. How can I get 3.1.3 back on the phone?

I put it in dfu mode, downloaded 3.1.3, loaded up itunes and clicked restore while holding down shift. Selected 3.1.3 and it was done.

HTC HD2 Android?

My phone contract is due for renewal soon and I’m thinking of getting the HTC HD2 but I’ve heard there will be an Android version soon. Is it worth getting the non-Android version and upgrading to it or waiting until the HTC Evo 4G version is available on my provider?

Android on HTC is available in two flavors: a ROM that is flashed to your device which overwrites Windows Mobile, or an application stored on your SD card that runs within Windows Mobile and reboots your device into Android without altering your device at all.

Advice please…..

Good Used Android Phone

Looking to find a good used Android phone that will be able to run the latest OS in the future. Looking to do some Android development. I had a G1 for a little bit, but couldn’t stand how slow it was. Not looking for people selling them right now, but looking for which ones are my best bet when I am looking. I assume the Droid and the Evo. Anything else worth checking out?
Picked up a Droid. Not a huge fan of the feel, but it’ll work for development
get a nexus one if you’re going to be developing. You won’t regret it, I assure you.

Need Some Help v. Locked Cell Phones

We bought 2 phones at my work, my coworkers never bother to get the lock codes for them.

Not sure if there is like a default security code, or were screwed and we just have to sell them as parts.

I tried all the defaults, but nothing worked.

One is a T-Mobile Samsung Gravity 2 – SGH-T469

Other is a AT&T Samsung SGH-A737
call up the providers and ask for the code, if they’re used they’ll just give you the code.

i know when i gave my friend my old moto flip phone, i called t-mo up and asked for an unlock code, and they emailed it to me.

Ham radio…get in here

Picked up a Chinese Cheapie radio…a Puxing. Although I don’t know beans about 2-way radio (never really studied it) I managed to program in all the frequencies with the appropriate CTCSS encode/decode for the local Fire/PD/EMS on both the repeater and TA channels.

However, I’ve also been asked to include the DHS OEC interoperability TAC channels for potential future use during disaster drills. I’m having a problem with those…when I attempt to program 1xx.7525 I can’t get the radio to accept the quarter frequency. It resets my programming to 1xx.7500. It will accept other TAC channels such as 1xx.1375 though, which is a quarter frequency.

So how long before Blu-Ray Players are included in a Computer?

I can’t wait for the day when Blu-Ray players become the norm for desktop & laptop computers instead of DVD-ROMs

How long do we have to wait for it?

3yrs tops maybe??
just about every decent computer out today has them.

my year old laptop that was maybe $900 has one
I’d say when two DVDs no longer are enough for certain software. Honestly, would you really want to buy some game for your computer that takes up three or more DVDs?

people did it in my day and im sure they would again, besides you only use all the disks to load it up anyway

any of you guys make the switch to no contract cell phone services?

cricket, boost, etc.

what were your experiences and what do you like/dislike? also any tips would be appreciated. ATT is killing me. I was wondering if the quality of service is getting better at all. (coverage, dropped calls, delayed texts…)

im thinkin of getting the blackberry curve with cricket once my contract is up
Is your phone a GSM phone? If not, get one you like on eBay and then go shopping for service providers. You can switch any time you want, that way, without having to get a new phone.
