Answer to "Samsung TV not starting EU55F6500"First and foremost be very careful when handling the power supply as the capacitors can be holding residual charge Hi, two blinks will usually indicate a power supply failure. A search on ebay for the model number of the power supply will bring of results for it (L55X1OV_D5M, BN44-00625C). If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment. Thanks and best regards ~ Justin
Answer to "Will replacing the screen on the iPhone 11 disable FaceID?"FaceID will retain its functionality since it is not part of the screen assembly.
Answer to "not sure I can upgrade RAM?"Hi there @okjay , Unfortunately you can NOT upgrade the ram on newer MacBook models as it is soldered onto the board. The green marks are the DDR3 DRAM
Answer to "MacBook battery taking considerably long time to charge"As battery’s degrade they don’t accept a large amount of power to attempt to preserve its life span and in this case it would appear that if they did replace the battery before it was shipped they might of either used a refurbished one and didn’t reset the logic board on the battery that contains its information such as its charge cycles, or they might of just plainly used a bad part. Hope this helps and if you have any questions feels free to comment! Best regards -Activoid
Answer to "Can you install a blank SSD if your old SSD has failed?"Thanks for asking Luke! If you don’t need any data swapped then you should be able to install a new ssd into the device and use internet recovery to reinstall Mac OS by pressing the command key + R at the same time but keep in mind that these devices use a proprietary connector and it’s not a normal m.2 or sata connection. Best regards -Activoid
Answer to "iPhone 6 Plus not powering on after being off for a long time"If the battery was fully drained and totally dead the logic board will not send any power to the battery
Answer to "Laptop not booting, no beeps, no fan"I would just check to make sure that there are no bent or messed up pins for the ram socket. I had this issue once before but on a MacBook and that fixed it up. I suggest taking a phone camera and looking closely at the pins.
Answer to "Will it still be waterproof after you replace the screen"Usually it will not retain its water resistance after a screen replacement unless it’s done by apple in which they make sure that the watch is properly sealed. Apples warranty also does specifically states even though the watch is water proof it isn’t covered for any water damage done to it just as a heads up. But if you are doing the repair your self even with a new gasket which is directly under the screen to keep the screen from coming off it will sadly not be water resistant anymore. Hope this answers your question! If you have any questions feel free to comment. - Corey Meyer
Answer to "Memory replacement for MacBook Air 13" Early 2015"Since they are not making these MacBooks thinner they needed to take out the removable dims for the ram since it takes up more space. So as Dan said sadly you will not be able to replace the RAM without a soldering station and experience with de-balling.
Answer to "iPhone 6 wont turn on after Battery Replacement. Maybe Flex cable?"Hey TheStick, that definitely can be an issue although that part can be replaced. Flex cables are very easily damaged by just a slip of a tool. You should still be able to get your device to power on with just plugging it into a power source. If that doesn’t work I would check out the battery connector to see if that has been damaged as well. I hope this helps. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask :)
