Create a phone shell/frame/body?

Hello all,The new phones these days break too easily and its harder and harder to replace the battery or sim card. Instead of buying or making a case, my idea is to make a phone shell/frame/body with a 3d printer, and just taking the parts out of my Samsung and just putting it into that.Is it doable?

Samsung lcd bad cap problems

Hey guys, recently I scored a Samsung 943nw monitor from my friend who says it's broken. So i thought, why not try repair it? Upon opening the lcd monitor up, I can see that the caps were bulging, samwha brand. The infected caps were three 25v 820µF and two 10v 1000µF. I went and sourced the caps from a couple of devices (a modem, and a power supply) When I turned the lcd on, the led was blinking. After the repair(with my crappy soldering skills), the monitor turned on, but not the backlight. I figured that the cc backlight inverter was spoiled. Then, after a probing at the components, I reset the monitor in hopes that the inverter would work. Instead, now the monitor showed no signs of life. Probing again showed that the 5v rail was 8.45v and 15v rail was 4.5v and 3.3v was ov. I still can't find the problem after hours of searching. (and a fatal electrocution from the mains input cap). Could it be my bad soldering, parts or some transistor problem? DId I also accidentally fry the image processing module?

Cannot connect to my home network unless a specific laptop is connected first

This is the strangest problem. My family has 3 laptops: a Samsung laptop (Windows 7), a HP Elitebook (Windows 8) and a Macbook pro.  All of a sudden, the HP and the Mac cannot connect to my home network unless the Samsung is connected first.  Once the Samsung connects (which it does automatically), both other devices will connect as well.  If the Samsung is turned off, I will receive an error message saying that the computer (HP or Mac) cannot connect to the internet--it will try troubleshooting (resetting the wireless adapter) but still will be unable to connect. If I turn off the Samsung, the other two laptops will stay connected, but if they are turned off, the Samsung has to be turned on and connected to the internet before they can connect.  I have spoken to the ISP provider and they cannot provide me with a solution. I have deleted and re-installed the home network on all 3 devices, but that hasn't solved the problem.  The computers are not set up on a HomeGroup.  One ISP technician told me to have all 3 computers on a Public network. (The Samsung automatically is set for Home Network.) The options for the HP windows 8 are Private or Public.  I have switched them all to Public and/or Home-Private, but that hasn't solved the problem.  (I don't understand why I should have my computers on a Public network if I am using my home ISP--I just moved to this town and am using a different internet provider--my previous ISP always said my computers should be on Home Network) I am not very computer literate but I have looked at the command prompt to see if the IPv Address was the issue. It appears to be correct--the only number that is different is the last one. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  If the Samsung laptop breaks or is taken out of the house--the other 2 computers won't ever connect! Thank you!

Error while loading instructables after update

After an update of Instructables not that long ago, I can no longer see any instructables or even log in on my Samsung SIII+ phone. When I try on a newer Samsung S8 it works fine. After starting Instructables, the error message is: "Error while loading Instructables. Please reload and check and check your internet connection" My internet connection is fine - through WiFi as well as 4G and both have been tried. Any ideas? Thanks, Jens.

Wireless in house works fine on laptops but not on phones?

Up until maybe a month everything was fine, then all of a sudden when people connect their phones (iphones/samsungs) to the network in the house it just doesn't work. The connection for laptops/ps3/xbox are fine but it just won't work on phones.  No settings have been changed.  We're using a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Mini DVD won't finalize

I've got a DVD camcorder (Samsung SC-DC173U), and am trying to finalize the disc so I can edit the video on it. Problem is, whenever I do what the instructions tell me in order to finalize it, a problem occurs. The "disc Finalize" option is unavailable. The manual says that the cause of this is most likely because the camcorder is low on power, but it is fully charged. Any suggestions? Need I take pictures or do anything else to help?

What To Do With Old Cell Phones?

My dad has a couple of old cell phones sitting in a drawer, and I'm wondering what I should do with them. Other than recycling them. Techie stuff I guess. One of them is a Samsung SCH-N150, the other is a Nokia from the late 90's I think, but I can't get the battery out so I can't see the model number (it's usually under it).

Uses for a dead smartphone?

Hey guys. New to all this disassembling/reassembling/making new stuff, please humor me. So I have this old Samsung Galaxy S Plus phone, which died in early 2014. And now, it's summer holidays, and I'm bored. I remembered this phone, and thought that maybe I could make something out of it. Is it possible to, say, take out the display, or the camera, and use it somewhere else? Maybe I could do something with the speaker? I tried searching on the internet, but didn't find anything. Thanks in advance.

using Smart TV board from dead TV to make standalone player

Hi everybody, recently I hired a new ISP company (italy) with a SO AWESOME VOD TV service, like netflix and also live tv, , the app works very great and with a good quality, the problem it's only available for LG and SAMSUNG smartTV, no way to watch it on PC; mobile, chromcast.... So... i have 2 more Sony TV and a 4k Projector and i don't find a dam solution to watch this app on rather than buy another 2 LG/SAM tvs and throw the projector (which is not an option hehe) So I wonder if I  can just buy a broken LG/SAM TV (even a new one) and use the smart TV board as player, I think, it's pretty easy to just unattach the board and put a power supply, but i wonder what kind of video interface this board uses, I will need any kind of magical WHATEVER to HDMI converter, and also it need to have audio aswell  I read most of the TV use proprietary interface / connector to send image to the panel, the app it's compatible with more than 200 models from LG and Samsung, maybe you guys know the exact model i shloud find to "hack" the board in most easy way Thanks!

Android 4.4.2

Alrighty folks, its been a while since i've been in the instructables community.... I apologize for my absence. Anyways, on to my question. My mother and I both have Samsung Galaxy s3s with android 4.4.2, and I am able to set a new lock pin, change lock type, or even disable mine. She, however, cannot do so on her phone. I've looked myself, and it seems all other options for the lock screen are "grayed out" and unable to be selected. All we want to do is disable the lock screen on her phone. Anybody know why this is happening or what I can do to help her out?
