My Acer Iconia A1 tablet has gone mute. All of the sudden, with no warnings or weird scratching sounds, the volume was no more. I tried everything I could think of in the settings, but nothing helped. The headphones still work, and when I connected it to my car radio it plays through the AUX cable with no issue. What I would like to know is 1) if there is a way to know if this is a software or hardware problem and 2) if the speakers can be replaced in case it’s their fault.

Hello. I have been having some problems with my Asus Fonepad 7 since the last update. When I connect a set of headphones to the device, they don’t work. I checked, and the Fonepad tells me they are connected, but no sound comes out of them. I tried this with many headphones, even with another pair from Asus, but nothing. What could the issue be?

I am having problems with my monitor (Acer S240HLBID), attached to an HP Pavilion with Windows 7. Yesterday I tweaked with the settings a bit (mainly changed the resolution and luminosity), and the screen went black with an error message stating “input not supported” appearing almost immediately. I turned the computer off using another monitor, and then tried to use my Acer monitor. It won’t work and the error message appeared again. What could the problem be?

My Nexus 7 is behaving weirdly since the last update. Sometimes it behaves as if I pressed something, even though my hands were nowhere near that point. For example, when I am reading a message, the Nexus types a couple of letters, even though my hands were not on the keyboard. I don’t know if this is related, but it also seems to be lagging a bit more than usual. Are there some settings or some steps I can take?

Hello. My Compaq desktop computer (DC510SFF) does moderately fine for a daily home use, but I would like to try and speed it up a bit. It has a 2 GB RAM, a Pentium 4 3.0 GHz. I just would like to gain some more speed without spending too much money. What should I buy, that is compatible with what I already have?

I bought a Moto X smartphone to use together with my Moto 360. When I try to connect the two, however, I cannot get past the “Choose a device” screen in Android Wear. What could be the issue? The Moto 360 has never been connected to another phone, and the Moto X is brand new.

I have noticed that my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro will not complete recharging the battery if I don´t reboot it and plug it in again. When I leave it all night to recharge, I wake up and the battery is somewhere around 70%. If I unplug it and then plug it in again the battery will not keep on charging. If I reboot the device, and then plug it in, it will charge to 100%. What is happening, and why?

My Sony Xperia Z2 works like a charm in most situations. But it cannot seem to be able to handle more than a minute of 4k video recording. If the shooting lasts more than a minute or so, the phone shuts down.

Is this a common issue?

Is it a problem that can be fixed by me without the need of repairs?

When I try to connect my LG G3 phone to the car stereo with a standard 3.5 mm Aux cable (double male), the phone refuses to connect and the music keeps on coming from the phone speakers.

However, my headphones work fine. I thought the problem was the cable, but other devices interact perfectly with both the Aux cable and the car stereo.

Are there any ways to fix this?

Hello. My Samsung Galaxy S4 has recently developed an annoying habit of self-rebooting at random. It can happen when I am playing games, writing messages, and one time even during a phone call. There is no consistency on what action triggers the reboot.

Are there steps I can take on my own before I send it to be repaired?
