This book provides common-sense advice for solving problems with common household electronics: PCs - tablets - mobile devices - home theater systems - digital cameras - and camcorders. To some extent, it makes up for the trouble shooting guides that should have been found in the manuals, but that were not included with the equipment when you bought it. What to do when equipment doesn't turn on, doesn't work right, or locks up - when different parts of a system fail to recognize each other, and all the other many frustrations of the digital age? And even when things are working right, there are often simple ways to improve speed or quality.Chapter 1 gives a brief introduction to the major features of digital devices covered in the book. When something breaks or burns out in your system, it is often impossible, or expensive, to repair the unit. Chapter 2 briefly discusses the options you have, but in most cases it is probably best to send your unit to the recyclers and purchase a new item with updated features. The days are past when you could fix the TV by checking a bag of vacuum tubes at Radio Shack and just replace the bad one(s).The following 21 chapters cover common problems when using digital equipment: malware - viewing videos and photos - keeping devices powered up - power supplies - Windows - file sharing - device sharing - printing - home theater systems, including HDTV s and projectors - 3D gaming speed - updating hardware and software - memory problems - overheating - touch screens, keyboards and mice - upgrading storage devices - non-performing software - digital cameras - camcorders and videos - iOS - and Android. The final chapter 24 has 11 flowcharts to help you find solutions to your PC and peripheral problems.
