Thank you for checking out my little corner of the internet here on iFixit!
Three things you should know: ✨ I create things / I explore things / + I love love ✨
Shameless plug: you can find my creations here — www.pixseoul.art
I like raw + real photos, especially in black and white. I also love writing letters—literal letters—that make up words, also known as: handlettering or calligraphy!
If I am not at home or at work, I am most likely either at home listening to an LP or driving somewhere + exploring, learning. I love spontaneous trips: near or far. One of my favorite adventures was exploring this abandoned church in Gary, Indiana [not the safest place in America, but definitely worth it! / also pictured on the right]
What we are living is the true-life version of a "choose your own adventure" book—and we are given the privilege + responsibility of forging our own way. Sylvia Plath speaks of choosing our destiny like plucking figs from a tree—endless in options and opportunity, waiting, and ready for the taking—weighted with the knowledge that choosing one fig may mean losing the rest. It's a dilemma that can be both tantalizing, arduous, paralyzing, but there is some mourning and some reveling either way.
I love tea, reading, getting tattoos, taking photos, gaming, watching foreign films, long walks [just not on the beach, I hate sand], groups no larger than four [including myself], traveling, a good hearty laugh, movies, animals + living my life moment by moment.
Rispondi a: My phone has a black screen and wont turn onHi there! Is it recognizable in iTunes when you plug it in to your computer? If you haven’t already, I’d try performing a DFU Restore. A DFU restore will update the OS, and give us a clean slate to further troubleshoot the device. If that doesn’t help, I would then inspect the digitizer + LCD cables for damage as those are fragile. Definitely be careful if you do end up opening up the device. Once you’ve got it opened, cleaning the contacts gently with isopropyl alcohol/rubbing alcohol/surgical spirits [a q-tip or bristled brush will do the trick]. Otherwise, replacing the LCD screen + digitizer might be the next step. Hope this helps! Good luck!
Rispondi a: Film advance leverwill go all the way but dose not advance the filmHi Mason! I wonder if any of the troubleshooting that we have on our website here would be helpful to: Minolta X-370 Troubleshooting — maybe some things you haven’t tried yet or are willing to try again. Otherwise, would you mind providing a link to a series of photos or a video of the issue that is happening once you have inserted the film into the camera?
Rispondi a: Weird grey lines on starting screen, in system blue lines.Hi there! I would suggest the following: (1) Disconnect/remove the display. (2) Inspect the display ribbon cables for any pinches or tears and inspect the connections and contacts on the logic board for any damaged pins. (3) Use a Q-tip dipped in Isopropyl/Rubbing Alcohol to clear out any debris in the connections and contacts. (4) Re-secure the display connections and reseat the display. (5) With the new screen installed, power off the device and let it sit untouched for at least 6 hours. If this doesn’t help, it is possible that some sort of damage did happen during the repair or pins on the connections on the display or it could simply be a bad display. Hope you are able to figure it out though!
Rispondi a: Why my front camera icon disappeared?Hi Alby, I was able to do a little research and it appears that you are not the only person with this problem! According to a question asked on the Google Forum, one of their experts suggest two things: 1) "Try to clear the cache and data of the Camera app. Some have reported this solved some issues they had with the Camera app." 2) For those of you who haven't requested a new device could you boot in safe mode to see if the problem persists. Ensure your device's screen is on, then press & hold the Power button. Touch & hold the Power off option in the dialog box. Touch OK in the following dialog to start safe mode. I hope this helps!
Rispondi a: My screens are all black and whiteHi Sandy, It sounds like we may be in a Power Saving Mode, which can be found in your settings.
