Re: What have you fixed lately?

I've had "The Android process has stopped"

No evidence as to what process and the OS isn't Android. It is on the next years sets so I guess this one is a mish-mash. UMS* suggests it's Mint when reporting the renderer data.

Also "Media Player has stopped" That one only seems to happen occasionally when playing content from the USB port Only a full power cycle will restore the Media Player operation.

Re: What have you fixed lately?

Had a BSOD on the PC this morning (Had several recently all with different fault references) and afterwards the cordless mouse wasn't working. Went through all the usual stuff checking the driver, etc. Even plugged in a USB mouse to prove the system was working. Then I thought "Has it just lost wireless connection?" Re synched it and now working fine. That's two hours of faffing about.

Windows is an absolute pig to drive throgh the keyboard.

Like tearing apart the washing machine only to find the fuse has gone.

Re: What have you fixed lately?

Check engine light came on the other day and it turned out to be a common fault: Stuck secondary injection pump which pushes air into the manifold during cold start as part of emissions controls. The pump can get stuck on and cause all kinds of problems with the fuel-air-exhaust continuum. A friend who does my engine maps deleted the pump from the ECU programming and we disconnected the pump. Job done.

I still love the error message "No keyboard found, press F1 to continue"


What I want to know who is General Failure, and why is he reading my hard drive?

Re: What have you fixed lately?

The case for my digital calipers. It had those funny plastic hinges with a thin section that flexes. Inevitably the flexi bit flexes too often and breaks.

I got a couple of small brass plated hinges from B&Q meant for jewelry cases and similar. Carefully positioning and then drilling the holes with my hobby drill I could then slip the nuts for some small bolts into the recesses where the original plastic hinge body was located.



I had the small fixings in a big tin of assorted ones inherited from my late father. I guess they're some BA size. Quite a nice fix.
