Easy! - How to read your dipstick when it's hard to see!. #13
 
01:34
(HD) (CC) Hard to read oil level? Here's a "simple" method used to read engine oil dipsticks that are HARD TO SEE with "clean/new oil" on them! New cars, trucks, and many other machines that run on gasoline, propane, natural gas, and even hydrogen for that matter run very clean, and so the oils used in them stay quite clear and translucent. This can make it very difficult for people to get an accurate reading on these dipsticks. The life of an engine engine could be jeopardized if a mistake is made with regards to the proper oil level within the engine. This works for transmission dipsticks too!

"Keurig fix" for "half filled cup" problem (model B70) explained. #7
 
02:41
(HD) (CC) "A FIX!" My Keurig "was" brewing half cups of coffee or less. I performed an effective repair that has worked for me for over 3 YEARS so far! (As of July 2014) This fix does require some technical knowledge, and SHOULD NOT be done by somebody who is not qualified. ALWAYS use replacement parts that are "food grade" rated, that is, components that DO NOT release oils/toxins/other into the coffee you will be drinking from your brewer. Please watch this video to at least get an idea of what I'm talking about. It might help you or someone you know.

Samsung TV won't turn on + blinking red light (explained fix) #18
 
04:03
(CC) (HD) A step-by-step repair video, showing the replacement of swollen/shorted electrolytic capacitors in my Samsung LCD TV. "Sped-up" sequences show relevant information to you, while at the same time providing detailed information. Note! When I say I "zero" the high voltage capacitors, I'm saying I physically "short-out" the 2 metal legs that come out of each high voltage capacitor (labeled as 50 volts or greater) using the metal blade of a screw driver. This step is done while holding/touching ONLY the plastic handle of the screw driver. This step brings the potential hazard of any possible residual high voltage being present down to a safe value of zero volts. This step removes the threat of receiving an electric shock from those capacitors if human skin makes contact across the capacitor legs, or connected associated circuits. My Samsung TV would not turn on. It would just make a continuous clicking sound until I unplugged it. UPDATE : As of now (Nov 4th 2018, over 4 years after this video was made) this tv in the video is still working perfectly! My TV is a Samsung 46" 120 hz LCD. Model # LN46A650A1FXZC The power supply electrolytic capacitors that were blown up in mine were 10 volt 1000 microfarad (blown) 25 volt 1000 microfarad (possibly ok) I purchased all 4 capacitors at "Sayal Electronics" for $3 TOTAL cost! Warning! This video shows a procedure that could expose the user to high voltage circuitry! Please do NOT attempt this unless YOU are confident in your ability to work with electronic circuits that can produce high voltages! You have been warned. Anything YOU do, will be done at your own risk.

Start a "push button start" car with a dead smart key/fob battery  #21
 
01:26
(HD) (CC) Stranded? If your "push-button start" car, truck, SUV, or motorcycle will not start and you have some sort of "key error" message on the instrument panel, then your smart key/fob battery is likely dead. NO PROBLEM! This video will most likely help you to start your engine so you can drive your vehicle. NOTE! This video will NOT HELP you if your VEHICLE BATTERY is dead! (2008 - 2010 Nissans and Infiniti - use the slot in the left side of the dash) This video applies to MOST makes and models of vehicles with the "smart key" system. (For vehicles with a "smart key symbol on the steering column, or on the front of the dash, place your smart key DIRECTLY ON THE SYMBOL and then press the start button with your finger, for example the new VW Golf - see http://dashboardsymbols.com/2012/04/volkswagen-and-audi-dead-key-fob-help/ ).These instructions are NOT USUALLY FOUND in owners manuals. A prompt in the manual usually suggests to "get your vehicle serviced by an authorized dealer". Of course, this means you are now stranded until you pay for a tow truck. Try this method first, and then, just put a battery in your "smart key/FOB when you get a chance. If you are not comfortable in doing that, then of course you can "drive your vehicle" in for service instead of getting it towed. There is NO limit to how far you can drive without the FOB (smart key) battery. Once the engine is running, it will NOT turn off by itself. If the engine is turned off, you may just need to repeat the method shown in the video to start the engine once again. One note, a long continuous warning beep "may" be emitted from outside your vehicle if the key signal is lost while the engine is idling in "park", and the drivers' door is open. The power door locks, trunk release, and any other features operated from the FOB/smart key will not work, and the key hidden inside the FOB/smart key will be required to manually unlock the vehicle doors and trunk.

Solution! Wi-Fi cutting out/dropping connections randomly (using FREE WiFi analyzer Android app) #15
 
03:05
(CC) (HD) A "simple fix" for intermittent Wi-Fi disconnecting, pages not loading, connection keeps dropping, even with a strong WiFi signal. Your neighbours might unknowingly be "bumping" you out from YOUR WiFi connection. If your Wi-Fi keeps cutting out, you might unknowingly be sharing the same WI-FI frequencies. Here I'll show you how to find this out for free, and how I easily fixed my connection problems. (Android, IPhone, PC, Windows, Mac, and so on) If you have what I had, the fix is relatively simple. The "Wifi analyzer" app I'm using is the one by "Farproc" in the Google Play Store. I have NO affiliation with this Dev, but I find the app works well for me. I'm sure there are many other alternative apps that work well too.

Don't panic!... Is your "laptop shutting off by itself" or "slowing down" during use"?  #8
 
03:42
(HD) (CC) PLEASE READ! This "simple fix" video is intended especially for STUDENTS who are in a pinch and have very few tools or resources nearby, including COMPRESSED AIR! This video shows how to revive almost any laptop that keeps turning itself off, or shuts off while it's being used due to an "overheating condition", without any special tools or taking anything apart. The fix shown in this video deals with a VERY common problem that so many laptops will have. The common cause of "overheating" is often a hidden dust build-up on the fan, heat sink, and/or internal parts! IMPORTANT NOTE! There is always a possibility that the laptop fan could become "jammed-up" with the dust that is blown back from the processor heat sink while doing this cleaning procedure, so be warned! The odds are very slight, but they ARE there! If this situation occurs, I would (and have in the past) used a vacuum hose from something like a shop vac, or something similar to get the dust off the fan allowing it to spin free. Myself, I would power off the laptop, place the vacuum suction near the "fan inlet" vent to achieve this. The vacuum will dislodge the dust, and the fan will start to spin. DO NOT let the fan spin up at a fast rate of speed as damage to the fan could occur. I have cleaned many laptops, and by using the procedure described here and in this video, I have always had success. I have never had to take a laptop apart because of a dust build-up. BTW, ANY laptop (AND PC) that moves air "into and out of itself" with a fan, will be susceptible to a dust build-up, eventually leading to an overheating condition. Symptoms of laptop over-heating may include (but are not limited to) • A very noisy or racing cooling fan with little air coming out from the laptop. • If any air is coming out from the laptop, it is quite hot! (It should only be warm) • No cooling fan sound, because the fan is stuck from dust build-up. • The bottom of the laptop near the fan area getting very hot. • Laptop performance slowing down, or the laptop is shutting off completely because the laptop is trying to protect itself from damage caused by an excessive heat build-up. note;- This video shows a "general method of cleaning" that "I would use" if tools/equipment are not available. It would be helpful to check the owner/user's manual of YOUR device to get clarification on the cleaning procedure of your laptop vents. Every laptop has a different configuration. PLEASE NOTE. There are times when a laptop will turn off because of a virus or malware, hardware or software problems/conflicts as well. If you believe your Windows laptop is "not" overheating, I would download and run (from microsoft.com/downloads) the "Microsoft malicious software removal tool"(There is a NEW updated one every week.). A FULL scan MUST be done in my opinion. This will take hours, but it is well worth it. If the tool does find problems, make absolutely sure YOU ARE running an antivirus program on your laptop. Many new laptops come with "trial versions" that expire leaving the unsuspecting user vulnerable! Reboot the laptop afterwards, run "Windows update" and install all recommended updates. Reboot the laptop again, then try it afterwards.

Earbuds cutting out? How to check for a "broken wire" EASILY using a POTATO (no tools). #19
 
03:56
(HD) Hey spud! If your ear buds or earphones are cutting out, here's a way to check the "electrical continuity" of your ear buds or earphones. IF YOU DON'T HAVE TESTING EQUIPMENT such as a multimeter, this is actually an effective alternative. Just a galvanized nail, penny (copper), and potato. Simple, safe, and can be done by almost anyone. You can try other metals in place of the galvanized nail. I did find that stainless steel cutlery (forks or knives) did not work well with the copper penny, athough an old screwdriver did in place of the nail. You can try other "acid" types of vegetables or fruits, but you must make sure the vegetable or fruit is juicy and wet with acid juice between the penny and the nail. Let us all know in the comments what worked for you! When this procedure is done with your earbuds in your ears, the sounds will be much louder and clearer than what I could pick up with my camera's microphone. Remember, IF YOU ARE UNABLE to achieve any sound in one of your earbuds, but you can in the other, then your earbuds are likely defective. Note! For most earbuds, the "tip" of the plug is the left earbud, with the first "sleeve" up from the tip being the right earbud. Touching the 2nd sleeve (common) to the tip (left) or the first sleeve (right), will produce small sounds in the respective earbuds. ALSO, for the many of you who have 4 conductors on your earbuds, the 4th conductor (sleeve) is usually for the microphone. No need to touch that sleeve. If your earbuds test out ok (you hear sounds), but when you plug them into your device you still have problems with missing sound, be sure to check out my other video which addresses a very common problem that can make "sound cut out". For a FULL diagnosis and repair for earbuds (1/8 inch TRS AND TRRS), check out my video here. https://youtu.be/2pwFYRGfgyo If your earbuds cut out only on ONE device check my video here. http://youtu.be/BjHEfjFwueo Check out my channel "Mysimplefix"! http://www.youtube.com/northcaledon/videos DISCLAIMER; - WARNING: This video is provided for entertainment and promotional purposes only.

"Slow charging" cell phone? Here's a VERY common cause! (other devices too) #9
 
03:52
(CC) (HD) "Small output" or the WRONG charger + a "BIG phone" = a SLOW charge! Could this be what you have? I'll demonstrate and explain this for you in this video. ALSO, dust and pocket lint (believe it or not) could be affecting the charging of your phone or device. I have 2 videos titled "simple fix for phone not charging" (one is an update video). These videos talk about the micro usb port in Android phones. BUT, both types of IPhone charge ports are also vulnerable to a progressive dust build-up as well. The result is your charge plug might not be "going in all the way" resulting in a poor connection and therefore, a "slow charge".

"Simple" solar burner/boiler. 1527 half inch mirrors. (32 x 18 inch dish) #2
 
01:43
Just for fun I "boiled" water, and "burned" wood using a Satellite dish with mirrors stuck to it! I took a used 32 inch by 18 inch satellite dish, and siliconed 1527 mirrors on to it. Each mirror is 1/2 inch in size. It seems crazy, but, what the heck! The job took me about 6 hours to do, and,,, now I can make steam. Note! CC's are not available in this video (because I am not speaking). below is "text" from this video you can copy and translate..... BEGINNING of text from video... "Warning:, ALWAYS protect your eyes, skin, other people/animals if you build this device and use it! May 19th, 1 hour north of Toronto, Canada. 1527 half inch mirrors stuck to a 32 inch by 18 inch satellite dish. Completely full of tap water, a “full boil” is reached after about 13 minutes! The can is painted black to help absorb heat. I was able to set wood on fire in as little as 3 seconds! The heat cannot be projected any substantial distance. Heat is only generated at/near the “focal point”. The focal point quickly becomes scattered (weak), if the dish is tilted away from the sun. Thanks for watching!" END of text from video.

Fix for wet car windows, smelly/stuffy car! #3
 
03:26
(CC). I believe there are potentially millions of vehicles globally that are driving around with this issue, (maybe including you). People/operators may be suffering needlessly! Is your car air "stuffy" or "stale"? Do you really know what your heater controls do? Let me ask you this, when you are driving your car, truck, or van, do YOU or your passengers EVER suffer from the following symptoms? (all after a short drive, and getting worse as the drive goes on)... Do your windows get wet on the inside while driving in cool or cold weather? (if your A/C system has lost it's ability to cool there will be a moisture build up). Do you feel the need to role down a window? Do your passengers role down their windows? Do your occupants get irritable, or possibly car sick? Does your car smell stale? Do you feel agitated in your car? Do you have a generally poor feeling of health, after driving in your car? If any or all of these examples apply, there may be a "simple fix" that you will need to do. There is nothing other than a heater or A/C control setting that you might need to change. REALLY....It's that simple! Please watch this video, so I can explain what so many don't know. WARNING! If the windows in your vehicle are WET, AND THERE IS A STRONG SWEET/BAD SMELL inside your vehicle, YOUR "HEATER CORE" IS LIKELY BLOWN and you are smelling engine coolant! You MUST bring your vehicle in for service AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, as engine coolant is VERY toxic and dangerous to inhale!

Trick! Increase range of your smart key! #11
 
01:09
(HD) (CC) This video shows how I can effectively extend the transmitting range of a "key fob" for almost ALL cars. I use key fobs every weekday on MANY cars and trucks, and have used this method for many years. This method ALWAYS works for me in getting more "range" when I'm out in the parking lot looking for a car or truck. This method was shown to me by a friend who installed high end car alarms years ago, and so, I have been walking around with these pointed at my chin ever since. I would think my physiology is no different than anyone else's! Enjoy your new found talent with your car seeking skills!

"FIX" Galaxy Note 4 rebooting continuously (Android) #26
 
01:27
(HD) (CC) Is your phone rebooting endlessly by itself for no apparent reason? If you plug your phone into your "phone charger" does your phone start up normally? The battery caused this in My Galaxy Note 4. This video will show you how to identify if a "battery" is the likely cause of a phone rebooting by itself. (Galaxy Note 4 shown here). IMPORTANT WARNING! you must first check your battery life graph for sudden drops to zero! If you don't see any drops to zero (like I showed in the video) then your battery is likely NOT the problem. UPDATE: the original battery shown in the video lasted only 6 or 7 months. I replaced it with an Anker battery. It worked well for 9 months then the same problem happened again. Luckily it had an 18 month warranty. So, for my Note 4, 2 batteries in a year and a half! The only issue you may run into is if the battery is easily replaceable or not!

Simple and Effective Printer Bed Adhesive (Heated beds on most 3D Printers)
 
06:30
(HD) (CC) An alternative 3D Printer bed adhesion method that nobody seems to know about? All by utilizing ordinary table sugar and a small amount of water. As of the time of this video, I haven't found anyone else using this method. So, I’ll demonstrate this very simple method and speak regarding my findings at the end of the video. This method has so far worked VERY well for me. I wish to share this with you, my viewers! Reference; - “Thermal and Oxidative degradation of sugar (Sucrose)” found at http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucrose UPDATE (Nov 4th 2018), - I've found I can use a VERY... small mix of sugar and water (less than a half a teaspoon of sugar) and effectively lock my print(s) down perfectly! The prints release once the bed has cooled down.
