3 Steps to Set Chunghop Universal Remote without Codes

If you lost your Chunghop Universal TV Remote code, do not worry, actually there is an easier way you can reset you remote without using any code.

1. Press the set button until the LED indicator lights up.
2. Press the volume button (repeatedly) until the volume bar appear on your tv screen.
3. If the set LED indicator on your remote still on, press the set button once to turn it off.

Now you can use your remote.

Something you need to know:
1. Do not press the volume button as fast as you want, because when the volume bar appear on the TV screen you need to stop. If you don't t will not work.
2. If certain button does not work, repeat the process.

I didn't get the remote to work first, but after 5-6 tries I manage to get it to work.

WEBE RM79 - The Good News and The Bad News

I will not write a brief description about the Plan or stuff. This package is good to be true and guess what, they offer a limited time RM79 registration for all user. So here is what I think about this package, and you can decide is it worth to mnp your current number and telco:

The Good News:
1. Free Call (Unlimited)
2. Free SMS (unlimited)
3. No Quota (Unlimited High Speed Internet).
4. 4G

The Bad News.
1. Sorry, No torrent Please!
2. Maximum or Minimum Speed not mentioned.
3. Only few phones will enjoy the benefit because it uses 850Mhz Band. Now go to GSM arena and check your phone specification, does it support 850Mhz.
4. Personal Hotspot or Tethering RM6 for 2 Hours.

The biggest problem for me is the Hotspot price, however, there is a good reason why WEBE need to implement this. Since the speed is Uncapped, it would be wise for us to buy one sim and share with whole  family, friends and neighbors right?, no need one sim for one person, it would be one sim and Internet for all…

After 10 years I dedicated my life fixing computers, today I spent my money and time just to learn how to fix a smart phone. There are few youtube videos that shows how to fix or Replace Asus Zenfone Screen. They make it look easy but after I tried do it myself, there are few important point we need to know. So here is the lesson I learned and hope would be helpful to others:

Note:
If you need the video tutorial, here is the best so far : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgDOgezZVCc

1. The screen is a combination of Digitizer and LED/LCD.
For zenfone 5 model, don't buy LCD and touchscreen separately. Buy both of them which already stick together. This is because to remove only touch screen (digitizer) is too technical and one mistake you'll break the Black LCD Layer. Trust me I broke one and waste 5 dollar to buy only digitizer, then spend another $23 for this.

2. Make sure to have the following tools:

How to fix Invalid pdf on android

Using your default browser is the main reason why you can't open pdf files. I have the same problem after downloading a pdf file using original browser with my asus smart phone. I got this error when trying to open the pdf file using adobe reader.The document can't be opened because it is not a valid pdf document.Solution:
After a few research i found out that we just need to download the pdf file using different browser. For my case I use Google chrome.It seems that some browser does not download certain file properly or have restrictions for security purpose. And there are cases where chrome does not work but opera did. The reason for this problem could be the android system or the android browser apps. You can also try to request desktop site instead of mobile site and avoid to click download button before the page finish loading.

3 Simple Steps to Turn Off Windows 10 Automatic Updates

Image
Windows 10 automatically download and install updates, and there are no options like previous Windows Version which you can choose either you want it to install them or not. Since most telco applied Data usage limit (Quota) to your broadband/Internet plan, Microsoft set a feature that Windows will not downloads Update from a metered connection, by default certain connections such as mobile internet already set to metered connection. However you can change your Wifi connection as a metered connection, so that whenever you use that metered connection Windows will not use that connection to download and install updates.
