This Is How You Can Maintain Your Cd/Dvd discs & Dvd Player For a Long Lasting Usage.

MAINTENANCE OF CD’S, DVD’S & DVD PLAYER.

What is a DVD ?
            A DVD is a digital optical disc storage format that might contain or store any type of digital data and is commonly and widely used for software’s e.g. games, and other computer files as well as movies, videos, music, watched or played using DVD players.
 The full meaning of DVD is digital versatile disc or digital video discwhile the full meaning of CD is compact disc.
CD/DVD disc

This format was invented and developed by Philips,   Sony, Panasonic, and Toshiba in 1995.
DVD offers higher storage capacities than CD’S while having the same dimension. Different DVD’s have different storage capacities some of which have 4.7GB (single-sided, single-layer) which is very common as we know, 8.5GB (single-sided, double-layer), 9.4GB (double-sided, single-layer) e.t.c.

Now, A DVD player: is an electronic device that reads the disc and play the contents on it be it music, videos, movies or games.
A DVD player

            Both the DVD and DVD player might develop faults and malfunction. Therefore they need some maintenance occasionally. ‘OCCASIONALLY’ here does not mean ‘REGULARLY’ as it can cause more problem as will be discussed later. Faults might develop as a result of somethings such as mishandling, improper maintenance, or fake products. Although i will discuss with you about some proper maintenance and precautions of DVD and DVD player, you must also make sure that these are properly put into practice to ensure long life span of your DVD and DVD player.
         Below are the listed and recommended precautions for DVD (disc) :
Ø  Do not hold the disc at the silvery or shiny surface as oily hand can attract dust and cause scratches that can make the disc to freeze or skip while being played.
Ø  If the disc is not in use it is advisable to remove from the player and kept in their case or sleeves to prevent dust and scratches.
Ø  The disc should be held carefully at the edge.
Ø  Do not expose disc to direct sunlight, heat or rain (i.e. moisture) as it can cause damage of the disc.
Ø  Do not clean the disc with just anything material but with some solutions such as methanol (i.e spirit), disc cleaner, isopropyl alcohol; and it should be applied on a lint free cloth or soft cotton and gently wiped on the disc in a straight line and not in a circulatory method to prevent scratches.
Ø  Also for scratches on discs they can be taken care of by polishing with disc repair kits (e.g. disc cleaner)which can be purchased in any electronics store.

 Now, the second part which is the preventive precautions for DVD players; read them below carefully:
  Remove from connections to power source when not in use.
  ‘FREQUENT’ cleaning should be avoided to prevent destroying the lens or the laser of the player. Cleaning can be done once in a month.
  The DVD player has a laser lens that can be affected by dust which can in turn affect the normal functioning of the DVD player. To prevent this, the player can be cleaned through the following processes:
·         Unscrew the top cover screws of the DVD player using a screw driver or set of tools.
·         Blow off the disposable dust off the laser lens with compressed air,
·         Get a lint-free cloth or soft cotton and moisten it with DVD disc cleaner(e.g. isopropyl alcohol, spirit/methanol),
·         Wipe the lens gently with care
·         Allow the solution (i.e. isopropyl alcohol, methanol/spirit) to dry by blowing cool air and waiting for few minutes,
·         After the lens has completely dried, the DVD player should be reassembled.

That is all about the maintenance of both a DVD and DVD player.  In case you might need to get a DVD player for yourself here is a list of some very good DVD player which has been rated so far as one of the best DVD player:

Bluetooth And Wi-Fi Not Working: 5 recommended Alternatives To Share Files.

We all know how easy & fast it is nowadays to share files between a device and the other. The progressive and rapid advancement in technology brought about the existence of so many varieties of mobile devices such as mobile phones, tablets, ipads e.t.c [specifically smart phones].

These smart phones have at least two(2) media for file transfer which are “Bluetooth” and “Wi-Fi direct”, which i believe that most of us prefer using “wi-fi” to Bluetooth. May be due to the speed at which datas are being transferred.

But come to think of this, what of those that had the two media of data transfer disabled on their phone, is there any other method/means such person can use to transfer files from a particular device to another or do you think  that is simply the end for them? Oh No!!!. Remember that where there is a will there must surely be a way, that’s why am writing an article on this topic today so that you can be enlightened & know how to go about it.The end has not yet come  because your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi is not working, there are actually other ways you can get files into your device even without the two medium mentioned above.
Below are some other recommended ways in which files can be transferred:

1)  USB CABLE:  All smartphones have a USB cable that comes with it, when just purchased new, if yours  is no more working again(can’t connect to pc successfully) you will need to go to an  electronic shop and purchased one that works perfectly with your phone.

The functions of a USB cable are:
·         Charging capability:  it charges your device.
·         Phone to pc data connection: connects your device to pc.

After a successful connection to the pc (computer), it will show on the computer as “detected”.So you can simply  scrol to the folder where the file is, and make use of the control copy and paste command[ to copy=> ctrl+C. and to paste=> ctrl+V ]

2)  NFC (Near Field Communication):   This NFC (Near field communication) can only exchange data between two devices with a distance less than 10 cm apart (it might be increased latter) meaning that it  is  a  short ranged communication technology . A device that has NFC-powered ability will be able to exchange data with another NFC enabled device.
The functions of NFC in a device are:

  • Can make digital transactions e.g. bills and credit card/debit card payments at a very high security  protection.
  • Transfer of phone data.   

3)  MEMORY/SD CARD

How to go about it:

  • Cut and paste/Copy and paste your files into your internal phone memory then delete the data on the memory card.
  • Remove the SD  CARD and insert into the device you need a  file from;
  • copy of all what you need and insert it into your own device.

4)  THE INTERNET: With the aid of good internet connections, upgrade in internet network  from  2G  to 3G ,not only that we now have 4G LTE;a super fast internet network connection ,which makes you surf the internet swiftly and smoothly.

You can also make use of the internet as a medium for file transfer . How? ,through the use of some applications namely :

  • Messaging app : such as  whatsApp (a widely used social messaging app, download it HERE) ,  Facebook, email services. Messaging apps can mainly be used for small or light data  transfer.
  • File sharing sites :
     *     Google drive
     **   Dropbox
     *** Zippyshare  etc.
After uploading the files to any of the above file sharing site, you then give out your link so that the person that needs it can download it to the device.
With this method, you can share large file online and easily get it on your device.

5)  The last method i will recommend is “USB Device + OTG” : OTG means “On The GO”. It is a feature that comes with the most Android phones. If it also came with your phone then you can connect a USB device or USB flash drive to the phone using OTG cable.

 So, once connected, all the phones' data can be easily copied to the USB device and there you go!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have any other data/ file sharing method you know about?... please let us know via the comment section below.

How To Repair The Mouth-Piece Of Your Phone- Do It Yourself

In today’s discussion am gonna teach you how you can make your mobile phone that had a faulty or damaged mouth-piece to work again and perfectly without visiting any engineer's shop.

WHAT IS A MOUTH-PIECE ?
A Mouthpiece is a component that converts sound signal into an electrical signal ,it then transfers it through your network to your caller  and also makes you to hear whatever you've recorded.

Everyone of us uses a mobile phone that’s why u’re able to read this very article. Its commonly reported that some phones do have mouth-piece problem after few weeks or months of purchase. I will advise here that you should not just jump on any phone that you see in market take your time to checkout on the quality product/one.
You don’t need to be an engineer before u can perform some little exercise on ur phone cuz u’ve visited the right place(blog) where we give u practical tutorials full and free..

There are some instruments(tools) u are going to use so you need to buy them so that you will not always borrow from people,when you have yours you can easily lay hold on it whenever you need it for your phone ,electrical gadgets or loved ones.To get these tools visit any electrical shop ,ask for solding iron,lead and tools.SEE SOME PICS BELOW…

soldering iron


soldering lead

NB: If your callers “always” complain that they don’t hear you clearly/at all ,its also a mouth-piece disorder.
Follow me carefully as I solve the problem now!.

STEP 1 : LOCATE YOUR MOUTH-PIECE

From what I said earlier you should now understand what a mouth-piece is, good!
After u’ve bought the complete tools pack ,pick any of the tool and see the one that will have an exact match with the “nut” of the phone you want to use loose.OK.,Now loose it and carefully bring out the panel of the phone.
NB: Don’t force it out of the “craker” so as to avoid the damage of any resistor or any other unit.

 STEP 2 : DO IT YOURSELF
Goto the lower part of the phone, you will see the mouth piece there.Here ,u’ll either see a tiny wire on the mouth-piece disconnected or everything well connected but mouth-piece damaged, so any of the two cases u notice ,just replace with the new one you bought and solder it back then you are done!!!

TO TEST: Goto phone menu and click record, save what you’ve recorded and hear it working CLEARLY and LOUDDD…… Hurray you are now an engineer!!!!!!

How To Know/Check Your Current Tariff Plan-All Networks



Hello guys how are you doing , i believe you are all fine.......dahts great!!

Am sure that very few of us know the tariff plan in which we belong on our respective network services.


Why do you need to Know It?

You need to know your tariff plan so as to know which one will favor you most in terms of their call rates, data bundles/plan, promo and other enjoyable services. For example, on my own personal glo line; whenever i recharge am always given free credit(for both inter and intra-network calls), data bundle and so on. So , if you don’t know your package then you’ll be suffering silently cuz you don’t which of the plan will be most favorable to u.

Many persons always complain to me that whenever they recharge and start making calls ;their credit always run-off very fast.
It’s unfortunate that most/all service providers do place the subscribers on expensive tariff plan so as to maximize profit, but since you are innocent about it you just see that your credit is not always enough for you.
Do you know that you can actually talk for hours with little credit?, this can be so when you are on an affordable call tariff plan/package.

Dial the codes below as stated on their respective networks.

For Airtel: dial *121*2*1#
For Glo: dial #100#
-you may get a response like USSDC:ESME, keep dialing the code until it display ur tariff plan.
For Mtn: dial *123*1*2#
For Etisalat: dial *244*33#
After knowing your tariff plan and you wish to know the benefits of the plan or you wish to change to another plan, you can call the care center with this numbers.

Customer lines:
For Airtel: dial 111 or 121 (both working)
For Glo: dial 121
For Etisalat: dial 200
For Mtn: 180.


Don’t forget to click the share buttons and also drop your comments. Thanks.
