  • Answer to: How do I clean corrosion after water damage?

    The best solution I've found to remove corrosion is boiling water. I take the Main PC Board out of the phone, boil water in a coffee cup in a microwave then place the board in the water. VERY IMPORTANT DO NOT PLACE THE BOARD IN THE MICROWAVE. After a minute or two carefully remove the board and scrub both sides with a tooth brush. When the board is completely dry return it to the phone. I've used this sucessfuly many times with water damaged Ipods, Iphones, & other electronic devices at the repair shop I work for.

  • Answer to: Canon 300D Shot numbering not working

    The Canon Rebel/300D LCD display cannot display a shot count # greater than 999. This is not an error with the camera, the LCD simply does not have a fourth digit in the shot # display. Just use the camera normally with the 4Gb card. The number display will start working again when the amount of free space on the card drops to a level where it will not hold more than 999 more pictures.
