What Larry is saying is you need to pull out the XLR connector first, then put the screw in, then push the XLR connector back into the mic body, then tighten the screw. The screw is bigger than the hole in the mic, so it cannot fall out of the mic easily. It also has a reverse thread, so when you turn it clockwise, it comes out of the XLR connector and wedge against the mic body and secures the connector. Thanks to you I checked my SM58s and found all these screws loose. I was able to tighten them before I lost them.
Buy a cable with the same type of plug at the end. For example I see a 3.5mm TRS audio cable selling for $2 plus shipping at monoprice. It has the same plug on both ends. Just cut off one of the plug and use the cable to replace the bad one.
Check to see if it is connected to the correct wifi hotspot. If you previously connected to a wifi router with password, and you reset the computer, it would have lost the password. It may then connect to some random wifi hotspot near you that has no password.
A broken antenna is not the most likely cause of poor data reception. Cell phone signals are transmitted over several different frequency bands. Cell phone carriers are frequently shuffling these bands around and launching new frequency bands. As cell phones get older, the frequency bands that the cell carrier are using, and the frequency bands that your phone can support, become more and more mismatch. This results in poor reception of data. The voice signal tends to remain on the same frequency bands. When you buy a new phone, check if the phone supports all the frequency bands that your carrier is using and is planning to use. Just because it's a new phone does not guarantee it supports all the frequency bands.
OK, I'm only 3 years late in answering this. I have a vornado VH101 and have a similar problem. I will describe my problem; maybe your issue is the same or maybe not. The fan blade attaches to the motor by friction. After a while it slips forward and hits the front grill and makes scraping sound. Eventually it gets stuck on the front grill and won't turn. The temporary solution is to push the fan blade back. I took mine apart (4 screws, including one that requires a special screwdriver) to do this. Be careful not to push the blade too far back. BTW, the VH101 is recalled. Don't know about the VH102.
If the outlet is the only thing that fails, the problem likely is in one of two places: the wiring at the outlet, or the wiring at the upstream junction. Since you replaced the outlet, I assume there is no wiring problem there. Now you need to locate the upstream junction, which is likely another outlet, but could also be a light switch. Once you located this upstream junction, inspect it for a loose connection. Find the upstream junction: Method 1 (easiest) This only works if you know which circuit breaker controls the failed outlet. You would know if you have previoulsy worked on this outlet. Shut off that breaker and find all the outlets and light that is now offline. Then from this list, pick the outlet or light switch that is closest to the failed outlet. That is probably the upstream junction. Probably. You may have to guess again. Method 2 (easy) If you don't know which breaker controls this outlet, use the AC Volts settings of a multimeter to probe the failed outlet. Measure hot and ground, since...
